French Boeuf Bourguignon (picture by Tasha Seccombe) This is the classic recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon that featured in the 2009 movie “Julie & Julia” starring Amy Adams and Meryl Streep. I watched the movie before I became a blogger, and before I knew who the legendary Julia Child was. A few weeks after, I strolled through a Le Creuset shop and picked up a leaflet with the original recipe that featured in the movie.

I have since cooked it twice (adapting it slightly to suit SA supermarket ingredients), each time with great appreciation from my family and friends. The recipe is long, and it takes quite some time. Making it a day in advance is best for ultimate flavour development, then you can just reheat by the time your guests arrive. Bon appétit! Ingredients: Method: Pre-heat oven to 230 C.

Tip: If your beef needs more liquid during the cooking process, add more water or stock (taste to check flavour intensity). Credits: Food: Ilse van der Merwe from The Food Fox. Vegetarian Black Bean Soup | RedChillies. Let me start off this post, by asking you all dear readers about Canned Food. How often do you buy canned food?

Do you use it in your cooking often? What do you think about its nutrition value? Recently at work, some of our colleagues were discussing about canned food, fresh food, frozen food its benefits its ease of use of each of them etc. I do not use canned food often even if it is organic; I prefer fresh food. Now as far as frozen food is concerned, I have changed my outlook over a period of years. Coming back to the recipe, I made this classic Black Bean soup using canned beans. Ingredients Note: Change the spices based on taste and preference. 2 cans black bean1 medium onion, chopped1 stalk celery, chopped1/2 cup bell pepper chopped finely1 tsp oregano2 cloves garlic, grated1/2 Tbsp chili powder2 tsp ground cuminCrushed/milled black pepperCrushed tomatoes (optional)4 cups vegetable brothWaterOil, salt Directions Heat oil in a large pot.

Authentically Inauthentic Thai Coconut Soup | betacyanin. Authenticity is often a measure of quality when it comes to food, as if being able to call something “authentic” somehow makes it better. There’s an amazingly insightful and interesting article by Todd Kliman in the first issue of Lucky Peach called The Problem of Authenticity.

Kliman talks about how in a world of cultural homogenization, commercialism, and the vast emergence of generic things, we are becoming sentimental and nostalgic for things that are authentic, whatever authentic means. He challenges the perceived meaning of authenticity on many levels, and discusses the impracticality of seeking it. Kliman argues that “fusion” food, often wholly discredited, can be more genuine than food that is deemed “authentic”. He talks about how cuisine naturally evolves through fusion and that perhaps the meaning of authentic has more to do with a cooks experience and available resources, rather than the ability to seek and mimic traditional approaches.

The Ultimate Sandwich Recipe: Feast your eyes on this!

First things first, the CellarVie Wines team cannot lay claim to being responsible for the making of the ‘Ultimate Sandwich’. This remarkable feat of culinary engineering, complete with the beautiful pictures displayed below, arrived in our inbox courtesy of an anonymous email chain on Tuesday afternoon. Jamie Oliver would undoubtedly and perhaps quite correctly, not endorse this as a healthy meal, and it certainly isn't for the faint-hearted but we thought it was a bit of fun nonetheless. So feast your eyes on the ‘Ultimate sandwich’… Ingredients (a guideline) 1 hard crusted Italian bread 3 rib eye steaks 500g mushrooms 1 onion 8 rashers of unsmoked back bacon Swiss Cheese slices Worchester Sauce, Dijon Mustard, horseradish or condiments of your choosing.

November 13, 2008 by joejhorn A few weeks ago I started a quest for some good mac and cheese. Nancy makes a killer mac-n-cheese but I wanted my own. I’m sure I frustrate the crap out of Nancy sometimes because I’m always looking for something better when it comes to food and recipes. Now mind you , this mac-n-cheese is not Bobby Flay mac-n-cheese with some crazy-sexy ingredients, but it is really, really good!

I would make it for any of my friends and be proud. My first attempt was with a Jamie Oliver version that didn’t include a bechamel sauce but instead called for mixing the cooked pasta with the cheese and then baking it. The second version, I made a few nights ago for my best bud Chad, Nancy and the boys. Chad is up from San Francisco and has been visiting for the past week.

Last night was particularly funny though since you can customize your player characters. Well back to the mac-n-cheese. Perfect Mac-n-Cheese (serves 4 as a side dish) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Like this: Baked Tomato, Garlic, and Basil Bruschetta Bites. Finger foods are my favorite kind of food—to eat but not to make. That’s because they usually take a bit more work to put together than the full-size versions. Luckily, that’s not the case with these delicious bruschetta bites. They’re bursting with flavor and can be assembled in 15 minutes or less! So, preheat your oven, grab a loaf of your favorite baguette, and get out the cutting board.

I was skeptical, of course, but curious enough to try it and see how it tasted. I was pleasantly surprised by the results.

Now obviously, it is not quite the same as a traditional piece of pizza with soft, chewy crust, but it’s a great substitute when you’re watching your carb intake. Since the cauliflower is mixed with cheese, you mostly taste the cheese instead of the cauliflower, as well as the yummy veggies and meats on top of your pizza. My husband isn’t a huge fan of cauliflower, so I planned on making the pizza before he got home from work. So the general conclusion…Healthy, tasty and husband-approved? Cauliflower Crust PizzaYields: 1 serving* Ingredients: 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese* 1 egg, beaten 1 tsp dried oregano 1/2 tsp crushed garlic 1/2 tsp garlic salt Olive oil (optional) *The original recipe makes 1-9 inch pizza. Pip & Ebby - Pip &Ebby - Crack&brownies.

Have you ever tried crack? Yeah, me either. After eating these brownies, though, I feel like I would probably be less addicted to crack. I mean, how can that not be the case with brownies, peanuts, marshmallows, Reese's peanut butter cups, chocolate, peanut butter and Rice Krispies all present in a single bite?! This recipe comes from my very good Heather, and I am very grateful that she shared it! Prepare 1 package of brownie mix according to the package directions. While the brownies are baking, chop enough Reese's peanut butter cups (I used minis) to make 1 cup. Add on top of the baked brownies: 1/2 cup salted peanuts 1 cup Reese's peanut butter cups, chopped 2 cups miniature marshmallows Return to the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for an additional 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows begin to puff and brown and the chocolate begins to melt.

In a medium bowl, combine: 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter Pour mixture evenly over the brownies. Pasta Pie - StumbleUpon.

A cheese only layer, just for fun. Tomato sauce is last. It's important to press things down as you go. In my opinion, it can't be lasagna without at least a little ricotta! I painted on some alfredo at the end as a glue. All sealed up. Not Beans Again - find a recipe from your ingredients - StumbleUpon.
