have i ever told you how much i love this fucking site
If you’re luck enough to have a kitchen window, scallions in a cup of water will last pretty much forever and grow continuously.
And if you’re gonna make sure to keep red pepper flakes on hand, I’d give a double shout-out to Aleppo pepper. The heat is milder and better controlled, and they add a fruity depth to things that regular red pepper flakes just can’t match.
A riff on tinto verano? Red wine mixed with a fruity soft drink. To make it in the States I find it best to use the fancy carbonated lemonade from Trader Joe’s, with some cheap Spanish red win. 50/50 mix, garnish with a slice of orange.
Interesting. When I was stationed in Spain, long long ago, I don’t know if I ever saw anybody drink wine. It was almost always sherry. It could have been because I was in the middle of sherry making country or things might have changed in the decades since then.
I really wish I liked non-scrambled eggs enough to try this, because they theoretically look delicious.
i will be in Dublin next week with a 6 hour layover and i am eating ONLY at mcdonalds
Used this recipe for years, but once I bought Takara mirin, I stopped using sherry. Whatever you do, just don’t use the Aji-mirin you find in stores because it’s not real mirin, it’s mirin flavored.
I feel the same way about any egg white that isn't mixed with something to hide the flavor. I love dipping toast in runny yolks, but the whites make me gag, so I usually make mine scrambled. This is the only way I'll eat boiled eggs because the marinade really masks the flavor of the white.
My favourite Japanese egg preparation is the onsen tamago (hotspring egg). If you cook a whole egg at 65 C, the yolk ends up set but creamy, and the white still soft and custard-like. Crack that on a bowl of freshly cooked udon (no soup), add some mentaiko, diced green onion, a bit of pickled ginger, and crunchy bits…
I’ve been using this version from Momofuku:
Oh, now you’ve done it. Prepare for the no MSG/anti-vaxxer/flat earthers to claim MSG with cause insanity, autism and steal your soul.
MSG improves all food it is a miracle of the Chemical Age
The Kirkland brand is just Stretch-Tite with their label on it. This is also the brand preferred by America’s Test Kitchen.
Hey, class traitor, are you getting paid for defending Amazon on message boards, or just doing it for free?
Nice to see some love for Sometimes a Great Notion! One of my all time favorites
Claire - Aren’t you a Costco person? If so, I would humbly recommend googling “kirkland stretch tite food wrap”, and never ever go back to standard grocery store cling wrap. Stretch-Tite >> Saran Wrap. I spent formative years in a reso kitchen, and after I moved on, I remember using the stuff available to plebeian…
The work that many people do is ridiculous and shallow. Including me.
If your employer openly advertises that it’s going to work you harder, it should probably pay you higher wages.
I’m on the internet a fair bit and had no idea that there was a strike on Prime Day, so thanks for reporting on this!
