Wing thread started a craving I couldn't ignore.

Simmered a sauce with pineapple juice, soy sauce, shot of hoisin with a bunch of minced garlic, ginger and a hefty shot of sriracha.

Seared Ling cod with a herb beurre blanc, arugula salad, and poached steelhead on a rice and potato croquette, with a maple beurre monte and purple radish micro greens.

Culverin: just type in chinese baking buns and there are a whole list of buns available to bake. note to self, should start investing in bread flour and not use all purpose.

it also takes 4 hours to proof the dough so be prepared to wait

Love sitting around waiting more relaxing than having to work on an endless list of mise en place while at work

But speaking of waiting.....I was in Hawaii for work exp and was able to learn how cook a roast pig in basically, a sand oven for roughly 8 hours..then goes through a traditional ceremony (Luau) before carving.


how it all started - lit the logs which heated up the rocks

this is how you make a BBQ duck

Stuff the duck with secret spices and sew it back up.


pour hot water over it to slightly cook the skin


prepare skin wash with hot water, maltose, and vinegar


brush solution onto the duck, and air dry overnight ( screw you food safe)


Roast that sucker


Chop it!!!



Enjoy!

Not really a creation, but I took advantage of the weather today and roasted my first batch of coffee beans today for my espresso machine.

Want to try that soup.


Also.
Why does that duck look so lean?
Ducks I usually end up buying are full of fatty yummyness.

I'm not sure what you consider trouble. Here's all I had to do.

1. Plug in pop corn machine
2. Put in beans
3. Set the timer to 5 to 6 minutes
4. Lay the beans out onto a pan and let it cool and de-gas

Total time - 15 minutes. Fresh coffee guaranteed.

And yes, it's worth "the trouble." I roasted 4 batches last year at the end of the summer/fall season (I was a little late in doing this) and it is some of the most delicious espresso I've had. On the other hand, I personally prefer to get my hands dirty and to treat this like an experiment so part of the satisfaction is the process itself.

Shieettt,

I didn't know it was that easy. I almost wish you didn't tell me, with my addiction and all. lol.

I have to try this out. It might just blow my mind. Time to look for a popcorn machine at the thift store.

Is just using a timer a good way to roast coffee beans? I've always heard you have to really pay attention and listen to the coffee crack. A medium roast is between the first crack and the 2nd crack. A dark roast is after the 2nd crack but it takes a really skilled roaster to find the balance between a dark roast and burnt coffee beans. (the 2nd crack is also a lot softer sounding than the 1st crack). I've never tried this myself - it's just stuff I read on the internet.

It isn't the best way to be honest - I won't lie. It's harder for most home roasters/enthusiasts to roast at home because in order for you to properly roast according to first/second crack etc, you have to have a controlled environment. I have to roast in my garage because it's properly ventilated and I can easily sweep the mess into the garden for compost. I tried roasting in my basement but it gets too smokey and it's too cool inside so I don't get consistent results. I've found that roasting half a cup of beans in the popcorn machine for about 6 or 7 minutes will reach second crack. Again, this is just a general guideline. I didn't really pay too much attention.

After experimenting myself a few times, I stuck to some general guidelines from what I've read on the Internet and from my own experience. I don't roast my own beans down to a science (or at least I try to to a certain point) but in the end, the process itself and the final product is the most satisfying.

I pulled two shots on my Rancilio Silvia today and the results were excellent. A little bit on the acidic side so I need to let it de-gas for another day or two. I screwed up on the first batch as I put in too many beans the first time. The second and third batches were more consistent so ultimately, my fault.

First time doing cedar plank salmon... turned out excellent! Took off the grill but left on the board to finish cooking. Flaked apart perfectly. Good smokey/cedar flavour.

Just gotta clean out the grill from all ash.

Next time try top grill and indirect heat. That way the plank won't burn.
