Food

Unread postby jimmer » Mon Mar 13, 2017 2:40 am

Hadn't cooked and plated food in over a year, but I had some friends over for lunch on Saturday and got 'busy'.

00_mushrooms.jpeg

Oyster mushrooms, oats and parsley, mushrooms with parmesan, parsnip fritters, red wine reduction, white pepper.

00_sunchokes.jpeg

Jerusalem artichokes, pickled red radish, croutons, pink pepper corns

00_ganache.jpeg

Shortbread, chocolate ganache, orange, orange confiture, vanilla eyesukureemu, mint, ginger powder.

Main course was a portion of poached salmon with red rice, butternut squash, celery and pumpkin seeds. Piccies of it were annoyingly blurry so no piccie posted here. It looked like salmon and veg ;)

It does look very 'Saturday Kitchen' Jimmer..
[One does hope the reference to Saturday Kitchen was not an insult, I could change it to Sunday Brunch]

:shock: Wow. I know my way around a kitchen, but I only do simple stuff. I would never even consider attempting something so fancy. And by the time I'm done making the food, I certainly don't have the patience required to plate it so elegantly and offer up such a nice presentation. I'm very impressed with what you've done.

So I heard today that the scots have a wonderful thing called deep fried pizza. It's like a marriage of the tastiest way to cook something with the most popular food in the Western world.

For those whove had a 'pizza supper' as it is so called, how good is it?

It's been hot recently so cold noodle dishes are the bulk of my current eating.

This is cold soba with fried spiced tofu and a Sichuan vinaigrette.

Recipe is pretty simple. Get some soba, boil it for 4 mins in unsalted water, drain and rinse in ice cold water.

For the tofu you need to use spiced or smoked tofu as it has less moisture. Heat some oil in a pan, smash and chop a clove of garlic roughly, sweat it in the pan with some sichuan peppercorns and then fry the tofu until crispy. Remove the oil from heat and pour some crushed red pepper in a mixing bowl, take the oil you fried with and strain it into the mixing bowl. Add 2 parts rice wine and 1 part balsamic vinegar, whisking vigorously. I like to add some brown sugar, salt and black pepper to it as well. Plate some soba noodles, cut the tofu into bite size chunks and then pour some vinaigrette over it.

Interesting recipe there. I've never been a fan of tofu, but your spiced and crispy-fried version actually looks good.

Tofu is very versatile, and has kind of a bad rap. It doesn't have much flavour on its own, admittedly, and this certainly is a light tasting dish, but the texture of fried spiced dry tofu is far more better than the stuff you get in the water blocks at the grocery store - I hate working with that stuff. You have to go to a Chinese market and buy the cheapest spiced tofu on the shelf to make this recipe worth it, since I did the math and I get 4 meals out of a pack of soba and a pack of tofu at $2/meal.
