How to Cook Sticky Rice the Easy Way and without a Steamer Sometimes, I feel like all the brilliant friends I am fortunate to have, but perhaps don’t deserve, should be the ones writing this blog. My friend B very recently allowed me to share her Khao Na Gai recipe with you. Then a few weeks ago, my friend L showed me the only way he had been making perfect Thai sticky rice for the past several months. It’s done without a steamer. I’ve tried this method many times since then, mostly just to prove him a misguided heretic. Traditionally, Thai/Lao sticky rice is steamed in a cone-shaped woven bamboo basket (to achieve the soft-yet-chewy rice that they eat with their hand, the rice is not cooked in water but with vapor), which is used together with a funny-looking aluminum pot, or an aluminum (sometimes stainless steel) multi-tiered/stackable steamer.

Graines à faire germer chez soi et à consommer. Les graines ont des goûts, des saveurs et textures différentes, ce qui permet des repas variés. Conseils de choix des graines Les graines doivent être de bonne qualité, provenant de l'agriculture biologique (si possible), stockées dans de bonnes conditions (à l'abri de l'humidité, des rongeurs, de la lumière dans des pots de terre ou de verre), ne pas être trop vieilles (elles se conservent cependant très longtemps, au moins deux ans sans problèmes), ni avoir été rôties ou grillées, être sans traitement (ni avant ni après la récolte) et sans insecticides. Quelles graines ne faut-il pas faire germer ? Toutes les graines germées ne sont pas comestibles, comme par exemple les graines de plantes qui ont des feuilles toxiques, les graines de solanacées (tomates, aubergines...), la rhubarbe. Le soja véritable (soja jaune) est toxique sous forme crue et donc il ne doit pas être consommé cru germé. Quelles graines faire germer ?

Delicatessen with love | gabriele galimberti Eat, Eat, Eat!!! From Grandma with love I will never forget grandma Sara’s artichokes. They have become a cult since when a famous Spanish cooking blog published their recipe, which I transcribed from memory, following the thread of the taste left in my mouth (just like Proust’s madeleine). Gabriele Galimberti pays homage to all the grandmothers in the world and to their love for good cooking, starting from his own grandma Marisa who, before the departure for his tour around the world by couchsurfing, took care to prepare her renowned ravioli. She was not so concerned about the possible risks or mishaps her grandson might face in his adventurous travelling worldwide, but her major worry was, “what will he eat?”. Buonappetito!

Ingredient Spotlight: Berbere, a Fiery, Aromatic, and Highly Flavorful Seasoning Blend from North Africa If you have ever had Ethiopian food or any food from countries in the Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Eritrea, and Somalia), you have probably encountered Berbere. Like za’atar in the Middle East and harissa in North Africa, berbere is a staple seasoning that can be found across all kinds of dishes in various countries in Africa. Let’s learn a little more about what berbere is, what it tastes like, and how we can incorporate it into our cooking. What is Berbere? Brian Yarvin/Shutterstock Berbere is a dry spice mix that is commonly used in the Horn of Africa, but it originates from Ethiopia, where it is also a key ingredient in dishes. Make Your Own Berbere elena moiseeva/Shutterstock Luckily, the main spices in berbere are fairly common, so it is very easy to make at home. How to Cook With Berbere Traditionally, berbere is used in wat, a buttery, savory Ethiopian stew that can be made with meats, vegetables, or lentils and other pulses. You can also incorporate berbere into marinades. Where to Buy

Sichuan-Inspired Pickled Vegetables You will love what happens to radishes and carrots in this pickle -- one turns a sheer sunset pink while the other practically pulsates orange. Chinese pickles are a cook's great cheat. In an elaborate Chinese menu, they save you from having to pull off time-consuming appetizers while they tune up palates for what's to come. Although these pickles are Chinese in origin, they happily pair up with a burger, a bowl of beans, or a plate of grilled chicken. The pickles keep for a month in the refrigerator. Marinade: 2-1/2 cups white distilled vinegar1 teaspoon kosher salt1/2 cup sugar1 generous teaspoon medium-hot ground chile (mirasol, guajillo, New Mexico, or hot Hungarian paprika)1 star anise, broken, or 1 teaspoon anise seed, bruised 1-1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, cut into 6 piecesOne 3- to 4-inch piece cinnamon stick, broken into several pieces Vegetables: 2 to 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut on the diagonal into 1/2-inch thick slivers8 to 10 red radishes, cut into 1/8-inch-thick rounds 1.

Food: Anchovies lift pesto dish to fit-for-company When I first met my soon-to-be husband, he told me his favorite food/flavor was pesto. Being a novice cook, and fairly unsophisticated, I had never tried to make pesto, thinking it had to be some fancy Italian preparation that I could never master. But I tackled the challenge with gusto: I purchased a basil plant and began plucking the tiny leaves for the recipe. Notice I said “tiny leaves,” because I had foolishly purchased globe basil whose leaves are at best miniscule. I had no clue there was Genovese basil or any other kind of special basil for pesto. As far as I can remember, the dish turned out OK. Fast-forward 34 years later and not only do I grow Genovese basil, lemon basil, cinnamon basil, purple opal basil and Thai basil, I make pesto on a fairly regular basis. That’s when I turned to my very favorite food blogger, Sue Moran, who lives in Los Angeles but hails from New Castle (aka Great Island) New Hampshire.

Black Radish Relish Recipe | Two friends joined Dana and I for dinner at Parts and Labour in Toronto a few months ago. We were spoiled as Chefs Matty Matheson and Matthew DeMille sat us in the kitchen and encouraged us to eat a large percentage of the menu. We didn`t come close to completing a tour of their offerings (this would be impossible with 4 people) but certainly sampled a marathon of taste and were impressed at every turn in the menu (I can still remember 90% of what I ate that evening). One of the dishes included a `black radish relish.` It was a small portion of condiment that I all but skipped over. We had finished the entire plate, minus the relish. This is not their recipe – nor an attempt to duplicate what they did. Black Radish Relish Instructions Chunk the radishes into relish-sized chunks. We ended up with 5 liters (5 quarts). When I was a child I collected comic books. Please help us by sharing:
