Topic: the Food Thread

A thread for incisive thrilling talk about what food we cooked last night/week, how great it was recipies, pictures, blablabla. Not a thread for talking about how kr00sh and nekr0 your new classy frutarian diet is, and how it makes you better than everyone else. All diets welcome. Apart from stupid ones like the Caterpillar-and-Fanta only diet.

To kick things off, I tried the bottom recipie from Hugh Fernstandtonwittinglytons Aubergine Recipies

http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/ … ttingstall

Which worked suprisingly well (I'm not great at new things) which made me happy. I'm going to have a crack at that mousaaka I think. Aubergines are awesome to the power of 5.

This is the best list of food ever. It makes it sound like you're a shouty army instructor

4 Slice Bread! 2 Bowl Fruit! 3 Sausage Rolls!

I did initially think Prot Powda was a fancy indian ingredient, then a few more neurons kicked in.

Depends what you're doing. Sometimes I feel like cooking something slightly more inventive, especially weekends monday/tuesday when I'm off work, or if I've had a day at work thats passed fast. For the other times something like whacking some tofu and spinach into some pasta, or a massive pile of mashed potato+ sprouts and gravy is labour de-intensive food at it's best (or worst..)

Hence needing new ideas.. I eat wayyyy too much root veg.

I like cooking, I'm just really not confident with new things, even if they usually turn out okay. Might have a bash at that Aubergine curry tonight seeing as I have all the ingredients!

Re: the Food Thread

curried parsnip soup simmering away in my kitchen right now? why yes, it is!
at the weekend i am going to be making pumpkin and "ricotta" cannelloni for an autumn feast for my gf.
i love cooking, and luckily i seem to be pretty fucking good at it too.

Re: the Food Thread

last night i made bolognaise...kind of standard. but i put smoked paprika in everything these days also.

onions, garlic fried. quorn mince in. orange pepper in.
2 cans chopped tomatoes, some puree and a bit of this over the top tomato mix, oregano, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, red wine, bouillon. leave for aaaaages.

personally am a huge fan of cooking and think i'm ok but don't often try new stuff. so it's like one day a week prob fajitas, one prob curry, one probably bolognaise one make pizzas etc

actually I think i'm going to try and have a new curry recipe because currently mine's nice enough but ends up being a little like a curry stew or something. look forward to seeing any curry ideas forthcoming.

Re: the Food Thread

i've been eating my carbonara type thing 2 or 3 times a week recently.

fry some courgette strips and some chopped leek, add some cheatin ham, then soya cream, garlic, then a handful of cheddar cheezly. add cooked spaghetti, season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes, then finally stir in some pine nuts, mixed seeds, and a handful of fresh rocket.

super yum.

Re: the Food Thread

bry's right! needs photies.

so... here's a couple of pizzas (w/cheezly mozzarella style) that i made recently:

bases were made using the pizza dough recipe from vegan with a vengeance. topping is my own recipe pizza sauce, fresh tomatoes (from my garden), fresh basil, mushrooms and onion.

blackberry and apple crumble, with fruit we foraged from delamere forest:

Ripped the arse out it last time I made them with a chilli sauce I tracked down in some dedicated Mexican/American/Spanish spicy food import shop. Put myself out of action for the best part of a week. I'm smothering everything in liquid smoke the now as a replacement. Dunno when I'll feel up to getting back in the saddle. Cooking with fire man, I swear it!

Re: the Food Thread

Owt that sticks tee yer ribs, but big hearty unctious stews, dumplings and stodgy puddens are what the guts have been craving recently. Tonight it was mushroom stroganoff and gnocchi and a couple of weeks ago i began baking for chrimbo. No real food pics as such but i started documenting the process for some reason that escapes me atm. Its an old recipe and every ingredient has to be measured exactly and added in a certain order which is laborious to say the least
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/ritchiehardcore/DSCF1620.jpg
400g currants
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/ritchiehardcore/DSCF1621.jpg
225g sultanas
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/ritchiehardcore/DSCF1622.jpg
225g raisins
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/ritchiehardcore/DSCF1623.jpg
150g glace cherries
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/ritchiehardcore/DSCF1625.jpg
70g chopped apricots and 65g candied peel
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/ritchiehardcore/DSCF1627.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v142/ritchiehardcore/DSCF1626.jpg
then i got to the bit where you add all the alcohol and went mad so decided to f*ck the recipe off and just throw in all the remaining fruit and a generous slosh of sherrry, madeira, port, whisky, brandy, calvados and some braggot and let it steep overnight. Next day forgot to take photos until it was baking so here we have a nice picture of a maslin pan big enough to bathe a child in that i used as a mixing bowl

Brussels sprouts actually. But I am a fan of all sprouts generally.

Brussel sprouts plus marg and gravy is pretty unbeatable

Re: the Food Thread

I like this thread.

Being back in Southwestern France (and in a quite remote area at that) does that I can't cook as much as I used as it's pretty much impossible to get most of the vegan substitutes you can find in the UK and whatnot. That means I've eating insane amounts of steamed rice and broccoli (almost everyday) and I've been trying to re-create some of the things I used to eat in the UK that don't exist here from scratch, such as kung-po mock pork for instance.

More power to me.

Re: the Food Thread

homemade pumpkin gnocchi took ages to make but were well worth it, next time I'll make loads more and freeze it in batches. staying on the pumpkin theme I'm gonna make up a big pot of pumpkin soup and decorate with roast beetroot chips.

got tons and tons of parsley and mint in the garden so I have been making big tabbouleh salads

need to use up a shitload of sage so any sage recipes would be more than welcome

I'll mail you some shit sometime if you want.

And by shit I of course mean classy redwoods/frys/whatever goods. Although I could always mail you a piece of shit if that is what you actually want.
