Turkish Style Soup

Homemade Bread

Dinner last night. Leftover braising liquid can be used in different ways. To make a sauce, in this case, to make soup.

Full of flavour, all I needed to add was some rice (which cooked in the soup) and some cauliflower from the freezer (from the farmers market in season). I wasn't about to throw away a chicken stock/lamb based batch of goodness!

A drizzle of olive oil, as I removed the fat from the liquid when I took it out of the fridge.

Lazy and quick use of leftovers.

Braised Turkish Style Lamb Shank

Meyer Lemon Sauce, Wholewheat Couscous

Dinner last night. Due to some people continually posting lamb shank recipes, I splurged on lamb shanks.

Braised in chicken stock with caramelized leeks, red onion, carrots, corriander, roasted cumin, maras pepper, smoked paprika, cinnamon stick, fresh thyme, bay leaf, garlic, ginger and tomato paste. Slow and low for a couple of hours until meltingly tender.

Wholewheat couscous to soak up the delicious braising liquid.

A dollop of a Meyer lemon sauce that is creamy, slightly tart, fragrant and salty.

Lamb shank, achievement unlocked!

Blood Orange Marmalade

I've been falling behind on jumping into Citrus season. Remedying this.

Playing around with a new technique for making marmalade, no pectin, still a fabulous set on the marmalade. I tried a short cut for zesting the peel, not really successful as there isn't quite enough of that bitter hit that you expect in a marmalade.

That being said, I bet this would be fabulous paired with an almond flour style cake. When cooking doesn't quite go as expected, turn, figure out another way to make use of what you've made.

I do have more citrus in the fridge, Valencia oranges and pink grapefruit. Will make a second stab at a wonderful marmalade today.

I adore the colour of this marmalade. Hopefully I can still find some more blood oranges to revisit this.

Duck Breast

Creamy Shiitake Gravy, Parsley Potato Mash

Dinner last night. Duck, I adore duck, it's been awhile. I prefer my duck breast cooked to medium-rare. Could have gotten a better crisp on the skin but not the end of the world. Just salt and pepper for seasoning. Seared, finished in a 400F oven, temped to 135F. Takes about 15 - 20 minutes.

The gravy, oh the gravy!!! Sauteed shiitake mushrooms, shallot, garlic, added red wine, ground corriander and chicken stock. Reduced the liquid by about two third's. Added cream and reduced until thick and bubbling. I added some Birch syrup for a lovely sweet tang.

Parsley potato mash, Nicola potatoes, mashed with butter and a little cream, stirred in some chopped Italian parsley just before serving.

Some shopping to do for work today, I should really get moving, after another cup of coffee....

Preserved Meyer Lemon

Meyer Lemon Sauce

A couple of jars of preserved Meyer lemons, I'll make more if I can still find them at the grocery store. I prefer them over regular lemons, slightly less acidic, fragrant.

I'll be gifting a couple of jars of the Meyer lemon sauce, a combination of whole Meyer lemon, garlic, sea salt and olive oil. Really fabulous, another sauce I'd love to make more of, with pasta, should be outstanding. Thinking of mixing with some herbs or spices, time will tell.

Honey Chili Blood Orange Wings

Panzella Salad

Dinner last night. More playing around in the kitchen. Wings were on discount at the farmers market yesterday, so.....

Keeping with the citrus theme that seemed to be happening yesterday. Wings marinated in a combination of fresh orange juice and zest, honey, dijon, marmalade, olive oil and chili/garlic paste (yes I raided the fermenting sriracha again). The wings were baked in a hot oven, the marinade was brought to a boil and reduced. The sticky, finger licking sauce was amazing. The recipe needs a few tweaks to be outstanding.

I was asked to possibly make some chicken wings for a small event. I think this would be a perfect recipe to use. I'd love to grill these on a BBQ first, sauce added after.

Panzella, classic Italian deliciousness!!! No cucumbers in the house, greens worked wonderfully.

Surprisingly enough for a relaxing day I managed to accomplish a few things. Fridge torn apart, cleaned reorganized. Farmers market visit. Preserves. Happy with the day!

This!

Instead of continually wallowing in your own self-pity about being a disastrous, detrimental douche, do something to better yourself in hopes of bettering your relationships. Asshole complacency is just another way of saying, “I don’t mind making people sad on the regular.” You should mind. You should care. You should change. There is no excuse for being an asshole when you have the choice not to be.

There is this pervasive idea that if a person knows they are an asshole that somehow makes it all right.

Story
Tagline
Local food, organic, homemade food. It's not that you don't like a particular food, you just haven't found the way you like it cooked!
Introduction

Food is my first passion.

If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with them...the people who give you their food give you their heart - Cesar Chavez

Food is a basic hedonistic pleasure, a sensual instinct we all share and revel in. - Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi, Jerusalem

He who controls the spice controls the universe.- Frank Herbert, Dune

It's not fair!! - Sarah, Labyrinth.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.  - Dr. Seuss 

Numerical Palindromes - it's a thing!!!
