Chef John is on Vacation

I wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be on vacation for the next week or so, and really looking forward to doing absolutely nothing. I’m sure I’ll do some cooking, since it’s always fun to experiment with new recipes without the pressure of having to film and edit them at the same time. Who knows, some of them may …

Cheesy Pea & Pasta Salad

I have to say right up front that this isn’t the best pea and pasta salad ever; that would be this one, because everything is better with bacon. However, you can’t have bacon with everything, so I will grudgingly admit that this one is pretty good too. It’s still quite rich, lack of bacon not withstanding. I see it more …

Smoked Portobello Bacon

This is the best thing I have tasted in a while. Mushrooms are bursting with umami, and together with the saltiness of the brine and the smokiness of the smoking the overall effect is very bacony. We have been enjoying them on BLTs (which will be even more awesome when our own tomatoes ripen), veggie burgers, and in scrambled tofu.  INGREDIENTS …

INSTANT RAVA HANDVO / SUJI HANDVO/ RAWA HANDVO

Handvo is a very famous and traditional Gujrati breakfast recipe. Authentically it’s made with dal (lentils) and rice and bottle gourd (lauki) with some more vegetables. Since it’s a little long process, as you need to soak it first and then keep it for fermentation.  But this one is an instant version. It’s made with suji and besan and with vegetables. …

Fun Facts About Rhubarb

It’s rhubarb season and time to overdose on this tasty but tart vegetable. Yes, you heard that right, I said vegetable. It’s often called a fruit, but it’s actually a vegetable. When you buy rhubarb, and I hope you do, plan to use it within 3-5 days because it doesn’t last long in your refrigerator. Here are 4 more fun …

See Three Peas, Oh

The last few years, Mr. Ferdzy has gotten mildly annoyed at my propensity to want to try new peas every year. They take up room, they may or may not be productive, they are something else to store and keep track of. So I was prepared to not try any new peas this year. When we were ordering seeds though, …

Steamed Barbecue Pork Buns (Char Siu Bao) – Sweet, Steamy Memories

In younger, leaner times, I’d often rely on the delicious, inexpensive calorie bomb that is the steamed barbecue pork bun. They were twice the size, and for a few bucks you could get very full…for about 30 minutes, and then you were starving again. Nothing a Mission-style burrito couldn’t fix. Anyway, the filling was chopped Chinese-style barbecue pork mixed with …

Stir-Fried Zucchini

First zucchini of the season! Purchased, alas – our zucchini went in kind of late. We’re seeing signs of some forming, though, which is exciting. This heat is good for something. Oddly enough, our first zucchini look like being yellow ones too. This was quick, simple, and tasty; words I always like to hear. Best served with some rice or …

Dosa

Welcome to post two of two of fermented breads! If you made the injera recipe, you will find the method for this recipe very similar. And, like injera, the bread is a wonderful gluten-free addition to a meal. You may toss the first few as you get used to spreading out the batter but it is worth persevering to get …
