Banana Chocolate Chip Bread and Mini Loaves I love banana bread, but more importantly, I love good banana bread. I like it to be dense and moist. I’m not too picky on the nuts vs. no nuts debate. I like them both.Ole considers himself a banana bread “purist.” One of my favorite things about quick breads is the ability to just dump ingredients into a mixer and turn it on. Banana Chocolate Chip Bread and Mini Loaves adapted from Pillsbury: The Complete Book of Baking Ingredients3/4 cup sugar 1 stick / 1/2 cup softened butter 2 medium-sized ripe (or overripe) bananas 1/2 cup sour cream 2 large eggs 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350ºF. Fruit “Caviar” – Adventures in Molecular Cooking [3] | my last bite… “Fruit Caviar” Last week I received the elBulli Texturas MiniKit that I ordered from the UK. Not only did it include the groovy Texturas ingredients, but also the tools and guidebook that I needed to really jump into this brave new world. The tools that came with the elBulli Texturas kit included a collecting (straining) spoon, measuring spoons and a syringe. I have to say, there is something sort of thrilling about using tools with “Albert Y Ferran Adrià” ENGRAVED on them. The phrase “Molecular Gastronomy ” (or molecular cooking) used to scare me. My current obsession with it began after I attended a “Molecular Gastronomy” class in November. A couple of years ago, I remember being dumbfounded while watching Ferran and Albert Adrià working at their elBulliTaller (laboratory) in Barcelona, Spain. Well I’m very proud to say that yesterday… I did it. What I’ve discovered thus far is that “molecular cooking” requires three SIMPLE things: 1. 2. 3. 9 oz. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Our Veggie Kitchen: Seitan Parmesan I used to make chicken Parmesan whenever I wanted a good old-fashioned indulgence, but I'd abandoned thoughts of veganizing it long ago. After my fist bite of Daiya vegan cheese, though, I thought "I've gotta make Seitan Parmesan." I added some lemon zest and salt to the breading and it made for a tasty crust and, with the cheese and sauce, I was back in good-old-fashioned heaven again. Seitan Parmesan 1/2 Recipe Marinara Sauce (about 2 cups) 4 Chicken-y seitan cutlets 1 cup vegan mozzarella cheese oil for frying Breading: 1 cup bread crumbs (I used whole wheat) 1/4 cup flour 1/2 tsp lemon zest 1/4 tsp salt Batter: 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk 1 tbs Vegenaise Prepare the marinara ahead of time or have your favorite jarred sauce ready. For each cutlet, dip into the milk, then toss with the bread crumbs. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large saute apn. While frying, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 4 Servings: 771 cal (30g fat, 89g carbs, 38g protein)

How to make perfect chocolate mousse Crepes suzettes and rhum baba may have come and gone, and profiteroles long outstayed their welcome, but chocolate mousse is one sixties favourite that's immune to the vagaries of fashion. Richly flavoured, yet light as air, there are few more perfect ways to end a meal. But, as with so many of its contemporaries time has not been kind to this once proud dessert – people have added olive oil, basil, and even – dear God – avocado, soy sauce and balsamic vinegar, all in the name of clever modern twists. The classic recipe When it comes to continental classics, I'm duty bound to consult Elizabeth David. The American version Elizabeth David wasn't the only greedy harpie whooping it up across the Channel in the 1960s though – Julia Child published her infamous Mastering the Art of French Cookery with two Parisennes at the beginning of the decade, a book which, of course, includes a recipe for chocolate mousse.
