Where do I begin? I’m looking at it right now… my last post dates from February 9, 2020, and it is almost September now. I’ve never been the most prolific blogger but a break this long is unusual. I kinda want to blame the pandemic but that would be just an excuse because what better […]
Super Easy Spanish Omelet… Straying from Traditions.
This dish and I go way way way back in both the preparation and the enjoyment of eating it. You can’t escape it when your grandparents are from Spain. Venezuela (where I’m from) opened the doors to immigrants during WWII and today there is a huge Spanish influence in most aspects of our modern society, […]
Sous Vide Vietnamese Fragrant Beef Stew (Bo Kho)
Here we go… walking into unknown territory again… maybe not for you but certainly for me. My Vietnamese kitchen knowledge is literally zero or so it was until a few hours ago. I love Vietnamese food and eat it frequently but I have never actually cooked a single Vietnamese dish at home, well, until tonight. […]
How to Salt Meat Before Searing.
The correct title for this post should have been “Salting Meats for Traditional Cooking Methods Especially if a Golden Crust is Part of the Plan” but who’s gonna google that and land here? I literally just spent 30 minutes trying to title this article and that’s because something as simple as adding salt to food […]
Sous Vide Soy Sauce Cornish Hen.
Alright, it’s almost midnight on Dec 31. Time to wrap it up for the year 2019. I figured I’d cook something completely different from what I usually cook during the holidays. Don’t ask me how I ended up with this choice (drunken internet browsing for sure) but I’m extremely happy I did and to be […]
Sous Vide Smoked Pork Shoulder
I’ve spent most of my evening fixing interface issues on my blog and have finally added a search box on my top menu. I didn’t wanna do it this way because there’s already a search box right next door if you look at my site on a desktop but there’s no other way to do […]
Sous Vide Duck “Confit” Dumplings
Alright, guys, its time for some more sous vide action even if it’s absolutely unnecessary or at least optional but I have never made duck confit any other way so there. And yes… today’s story begins with the famous French classic and ends with the famous Chinese classic. Why? why not. I don’t think I’ve […]
Sous Vide NY Steak and Black Garlic Butter.
This is going to be a quick one. My last post from a few days ago is all about black garlic goodness. I think this paved the way for today’s post which is nothing more than just an example of how to use this black garlic compound butter in one of the most delicious ways: […]
For a blog that features recipes that sometimes take a very long time to make, having an article on black garlic makes nothing but sense. Read on! Wanna get more sous-vide cooking guides and cool cooking how-to’s in your mailbox? You know what needs to be done! We never spam. You should only be getting […]
Kimchi: The Gist
It’s been a while since my last fermentation post on this blog but make no mistake, this house is full of LAB (lactic acid fermentation bacteria, the good guys) and stuff here ferments 24/7 … multiple projects going all at the same time… It’s a bit intense sometimes. I’m getting into fruit Lacto-fermentation now and […]
