About

Hi, my name is Paul, 

 

I started this blog sometime in 2013 with only the intention of writing down some notes on cooking and baking while. I wanted to learn how to make lentil soup and bake bread. Today I know how to make lentil soup… bread? I’m still working on that. Naming this blog… I obviously had no idea what to call it so I went for the most generic thing I could come up with. Today this blog is dedicated to my love and passion for food and photography. I hope you enjoy it.

A few questions you might have:

 

What sort of cooking will I find on this blog?

hmm… it’s pretty random. I try to focus on Sous vide and modernist stuff but I have a difficult time sticking to one thing. You’re gonna have to dive in. I love all cuisines. 

 

Is it a site about sous vide cooking? 

like I said, not mainly but it’s a big part of it. I have been cooking sous vide for some years. I love it. 

Any academic training? 

Nope.  Not in this field. 

 What’s your favourite kitchen tool? 

knives. (ok, my hands.. but that’s too Julia Child)

What’s your second favourite kitchen tool? 

spoons. 

What’s your favourite ingredient?

eggs. 

What do you shoot with? 

canon gear. Detailed info here.  Don’t feel like you can’t just contact me with questions. 

 Are you open to answer questions about your food and photography?

Ok, I feel weird.. I already mentioned that above. Absolutely. Just ping me. paul@thatothercookingblog.com I love questions and I love comments

  1. I dropped by to thank you for your “like” and then I saw “Italians invented yumminess” in your last post’s title. Well, I’d little choice but to hit “follow” right away. πŸ™‚

    1. hahah thank you John! I really mean it… I know spanish and french have dominated the world of cuisine for a while, but that has a lot to do with what Italy achieved in forwarding cooking before their time, at least that’s what I’ve read, and having grown up with tons of italian friends, I like to think I am right in saying so πŸ™‚ your blog is amazing btw, found you through a link on cooking-spree, I love that blog.

    1. really?? πŸ™‚ Sorry it has taken me some time to answer comments, my mom and aunt are visiting and things are a bit hectic around here. Thank you so much for the nomination!!! this is so great! I just checked the link, the rules all seem fair and really fun. I will submit my answers soon. Is there a deadline? Again, thank you for visiting and liking the content! πŸ™‚

  2. First of all, thank you for visiting my blog and commenting… I appreciate it!
    I’ve just read through your blog and wanted to tell you how much I like it. I’ve been burned out on the food blog thing for a while now – thank you for renewing my interest!

    1. that’s an awesome comment specially coming from you, somebody that from what I’ve read loves food and cooking, thank you so much! I’ve got my mom in town and I have to put down my camera and skillet for a few weeks. I can’t wait to start posting again!

    2. maybe I dreamed about replying to your comment, and forgive me if I didn’t, but looking through the comments pending approval ,yours shows up, well, not anymore, I obviously approved it πŸ™‚ I say thank you first of all, I’m really glad that somebody with so much knowledge about food took the time to visit and not only that but to find some inspiration, so thank you really!

    1. Thank you! I really have to get myself organized. Phuong also nominated me πŸ™‚ and I haven’t found the time to prep the post and notify future nominees πŸ™‚ But I will get to it! just work related stuff has been taking up more time than usual! I just joined your blog! Have you made your own cheese yet?

      1. Well, what can I say, you deserved two nominations! I’ve only made Labneh – does yogurt cheese count? I’m too scared my house will smell like cheese factories and I couldn’t handle that. I might attempt to make some ricotta soon… Can’t wait to see what you post next πŸ™‚

        1. hahahaha thank you! πŸ™‚ I once saw this labneh post on some blog I can’t remember which one and it was an extremely popular post and I have to say I’ve never had labneh or made it myself πŸ˜› and yes, let’s say it counts as cheese haha. If you make white cheeses, those shouldn’t smell at all, like burratta or mozzarella, there are even really good white hard cheeses you could make at home… I’ve tried a couple of times, it is a involved process but sort of fun πŸ™‚ Except for when you don’t have a cheese press and you improvise a horrible contraption that doesn’t really work ahahah

          1. Oh my… what kind of contraption did you improvise? Yeah, I squeezed a little too hard with the labneh and the yogurt kind of went everywhere… From what I’ve been reading, ricotta seems to be the easiest to make and doesn’t smell, so I think I’ll start with that one; I’ll let you know how I go!

  3. Paul, you have the most beautiful blog. Your photography is incredible as are your recipes, each one a taste explosion!
    I am looking forward to getting to know you better through our blogs.
    Thank you again for stopping by mine.
    Sunny South African regards to you.
    πŸ™‚ Mandy

  4. Your images are crisp, vivid and full of light worthy of any great magazine. I have not read any of the recipes yet but there is so much of obvious promise that I press follow and hope to devouring wonderful content as soon I get time.

    1. thank you, Im so glad you’re enjoying the photos, certainly a big reason I blog lately is so I can take pictures to document the recipes, and I really enjoy that. Thanks for following and Im following in return!

    1. Serna Cosmo! awesome name πŸ™‚ thank you so much for nominating me! I will take a look at your post in a sec, but I wanted to thank you first, and let you know that I’m following your blog because it’s beautiful, and shows how passionate you are about cooking. Having that italian tradition as your background is a wonderful gift and advantage when it comes to understanding and loving food. I wish I had that! πŸ™‚

  5. Wow, your blog is simply amazing. I’ve fallen in love with the different types of food and recipes on your site. Your photographs capture each meal perfectly and I will certainly be back here often πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Liuba! I’m so glad you are liking the posts on my blog! I’ve been to your blog, if not a chef (because I think that’s more of a term reserved for somebody who runs a restaurant), you have to be a pretty solid cook, your recipes all look wonderful and your in the photos I can see great cooking technique and attention and passion. I’m not a chef either but I love cooking. I do spend time reading about technique and cooking science so I don’t have always rely on recipes, but they do help. Thank you for following! Let’s stay in touch!

  6. Hi Paul , I stopped by as I was piqued by the name of your blog! (I should have named mine that too! πŸ™‚ ) I browsed through some of your posts and your recipes look very unique and amazing! Following you so I can learn more! πŸ™‚ – Indu

  7. Oh my, I’ve been away for so long it took me quite some time to just scan through all your posts. I just wanna press ‘Like’ all every single one of them, but might seem to weird all of a sudden :p Great job as always! If you have a cookbook, I’ll be on the line to order ^^

    1. Dedy, thanks man! the same I can say about your blog, the amount of information you have, and how technical and precise your recipes are, I wonder how you learned all of that. I never had any training. I just read some books and spend many hours trying stuff in the kitchen. I had had a passion for photography before I got into cooking. And then cooking came along, and I figured I could combine the two. I wish I could spend more time cooking and learning. I really like it.

  8. Hey I love that photo with the dog, is he yours? I currently have a dog in my “about” photo but he’s not mine. I’m going to have a bit of a dive in your archives for cooking ideas for the next week or two πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Sofia! thanks! I wish that dog were mine! πŸ™‚ it’s such a beautiful dog but it’s my friend’s and they love her. Great to hear from you! hope you’re Sunday is wonderful!
