If someone is stupid enough to try this then they probably shouldn't be handling sharp objects in the first place. It's funny because there are people crazy enough to try it. All I can say is that if the "giggles" heading, the hash tags and the general absurdity of the topic didn't do it for you then you have much bigger problems than lemon droplets. Anyway you understood the post so stop pretending there is a problem when there isn't.

Breakfast Sandwich

Fried Egg, Havarti Cheese, Bell Peppers, Turkish Pickles

Time to break open one of those jars of Turkish Pickles that I made about three weeks ago. Would I make them again, hell yes!!!!

Breakfast sammiches are so easy and so delicious! Basically a grilled cheese with something in it you would have at breakfast. Eggs, bacon, potatoes (yes potatoes), whatever is to your taste. This particular breakfast sandwich is filled with foods that I enjoy! Be creative, make your own!

Tip: If your cheese in your grilled cheese doesn't get melty to your satisfaction. Pop the sandwich into the oven for a few minutes. Cheese shall become melty!

Recipe for the pickles is here:

Again, be creative, have fun, make your food with what you enjoy!

Trying a new method (long fermentation). New cooking method, we'll see how things go.

The holes in the bread are from taking the dough temperature. Optimum was 77F, this dough temped in at 78F. Close, hopefully enough.

Dinner Last Night

Pancetta Cream Pasta, Chocolate Pear Cake

I had fun trying a new recipe for a Chocolate Pear Cake. It's baked in a cast-iron fry pan. Of course my fry pan is 1 inch smaller than what the recipe calls for. I'm getting better at not worrying about pan size differences and just going with it. I put a cookie sheet underneath the fry pan (just in case). The caramelization on the pears was a little less than it should have been. I'll work on that, seeing as how one of the B.C. fruit growers was having a sale (their last week at the farmers market until the spring) on pears and apples.

After cleaning up from cake making, dinner. Looking for inspiration, pasta, you can never go wrong with pasta. I found some pancetta that needed to be used, always lots of cherry tomatoes around here. A little bit of spinach (before it went south), garlic and cream. Dead simple, not a lot of ingredients, quick to make up. Completely delicious.

Works a bit busy, Tuesday they are having a "Day of Giving", a way to be the opposite of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The crew that did the reno's for the Hospice and anyone that volunteers or anyone that just wants to be there. Wine and cheese party for 50ish and I'm not 100%. Should be an interesting couple of days.

Food Labelling

This does need to be fixed.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency notes that, “‘Nature,’ ‘natural,’ ‘Mother Nature,’ ‘Nature’s Way’ are terms often misused on labels and in advertisements. Labels and advertisements should not convey the impression that “Nature” has, by some miraculous process, made some foods nutritionally superior to others or has engineered some foods specially to take care of human needs.” The agency notes that “natural” foods shouldn’t contain added vitamins, nutrients, artificial flavors, but says that these criteria are “expectations.” The European Union allows food producers to list certain aspects of a food as “natural” or “naturally occurring,” but it’s unclear as to what might constitute a natural food product. As the FDA notes, “From a food science perspective, it is difficult to define a food product that is ‘natural’ because the food has probably been processed and is no longer the product of the earth.”

  #foodlabelling   #fda #food #natural  
The FDA is finally addressing misleading and unnecessary food labels that confuse customers with claims of products being "all-natural" and "healthy."

Moroccan Chicken Stew

Carrots, Onions, Garlic, Spices, Preserved Lemon

And a slice of the bread I baked earlier. You need something to sop up all that deliciously spicy chicken broth.

A quick stew, seared chicken pieces (I cut up a whole chicken), seasoned with salt and pepper. The spice combination gets added when the chicken broth was added. A combination of cumin/ginger/Aleppo chili/corriander/cinnamon/sweet paprika make for a rich, luscious broth. Onions and garlic (a fair amount of garlic) were sauteed after the chicken was removed to a plate. When the chicken broth was added, it sizzled and I scraped all that golden brown goodness off of the bottom of the pan.

A couple of tablespoons of preserved lemon, chopped and added to the spiced chicken broth, Added just that touch of sharpness that keeps a spiced broth from being too rich.

A touch of honey to balance everything out.

The stew is just going to get even better while it sits in the fridge, overnight.

Success!!! And on the first time through this recipe. I've only ever managed a crust like this while I was in school. Using professional ovens.

Flour Water Salt Yeast by Ken Forkish is a bread book for the home baker. His technique of using a Dutch Oven to achieve the kind of crust that you usually only find in a professional bakery, is just.plain.wonderful!!! Colour me super impressed.

The crumb is pretty much what it should be. I made a couple of mistakes following the directions and the bread was forgiving. I'm looking forward (when time allows) to playing with more of the recipes.

I best get going on dinner and cleaning the kitchen of flour. I can be a little messy first time through with new recipes!

I'd love to see this exhibit.

Project Syria

A must-see at the exhibition is a virtual reality exhibit called Project Syria, developed by Nonny de la Peña, CEO of the Emblematic Group.

It was used at the World Economic Forum at Davos in 2013 to help the assembled leaders understand the traumatic events taking place in Syria.

Visitors are asked to don virtual reality goggles that immediately put you onto a street in Damascus.

Children are playing on the streets and people are browsing the fruit markets when a rocket hits.

The explosion leaves everything shrouded in dust as injured people cry for help.

Kimchee Bacon Okonomiyaki

Mayo, Pomegranate Honey

I made Okonomiyaki at work today, happily it went over very well. Mind you it was a much simpler version (too spicy hot doesn't go over well). Myself, I like spicy hot food. At work, it's not about me.

Finely shredded cabbage in a batter of flour, eggs, water, salt and pepper. The home version had a generous addition of homemade kimchee and bacon. The Korean pepper from the kimchee turned this Okonomiyaki orange/red.

This particular Okonomiyaki is in the Osaka style, an egg based batter. You can be creative and add many different foods to your Okinomiyaki, shrimp, peppers, green onions, pork.

Traditionally you serve the Okonomiyaki with Kewpie mayo (a very rich Japanese mayo) and Okonomi Sauce (similar to a BBQ/ketchup style sauce), tangy and sweet.


2/3 cup AP flour
100 g shredded cabbage
1/3 cup water
diced cooked bacon
1 large egg
salt and pepper
1 tbsp BBQ/ketchup sauce or I mixed equal amounts of pomegranate molasses and honey, heated slightly to combine
1 tbsp homemade mayo

Combine the flour, water egg, salt and pepper. Mix well into a smooth batter. Add the bacon and finely shredded cabbage. Heat a pan and add enough oil to cover the base of the pan. When the oil is hot (medium-low to medium) add the mixture. Brown on both sides. You want the pancake to cook all the way through so don't rush it. Remove the Okonomiyaki from the pan, spread the mayo on to cover, drizzle the BBQ/ketchup sauce or pomegranate honey sauce over the mayo. Enjoy

Seriously delicious!

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!

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
