This tuna pasta is one of those recipes that brings back a great deal of good memories. I was making something similar back in high school. Cheap canned tuna, cheap canned tomatoes sauce and cheap pasta. That’s all we needed (that’s I need today). Back then I was usually tasked with any vacation/camping trip cooking needs…actually would […]
chicken marsala sous vide 140F 2h
Chicken marsala. What can I say. Italians get it right every time. Every time, it’s pretty amazing and very comforting to know that when in doubt, cook something Italian. This is my first time cooking this dish and because I’m arrogant I tuned it my way and also decided to cook the chicken sous vide […]
Spaghetti, Cherry Tomatoes, Olive Oil and Garlic. A touch of Balsamic.
Spaghetti, Cherry Tomatoes, Olive Oil, some garlic and a bit of balsamic. That simple. Mix some diced cherry tomatoes, olive oil, chopped parsley, minced garlic and balsamic vinegar in a pot. Pinch of salt. Cook the pasta al dente in salty water. Strain the pasta. Mix the pasta into the pot with the tomato vinaigrette. […]
Time for some pasta fun. Last night I get a WhatsApp from my ex-college roommate Patty. She claims to enjoy the read but has no time to make the recipes on this blog… well, sure… (Patty, wtf!?) some take days, some are experiments, some take 20 minutes and I can’t think of anything worth calling a […]
Lamb Chops and Broccoli Pesto Spaghettini.
I’m crazy about Lamb Chops but I’m not a fan of broccoli. I’ll eat it. It’s green. Looks and tastes better smothered in ranch sauce for sure. I’m sure I’m not alone out there. I’m also pretty sensitive to bitter tastes. I drink coffee only because I have to, I can’t enjoy it. I hate […]
Pasta Bolognese. Faulty Gear. Ebook ideas.
There’s nothing original about tonight post and it isn’t really a recipe. It was tasty though. The meat ragu was leftover from my previous recipe Beef, Peppers and Leek Galette. Why not use it again and throw together a quick budget meal for tonight’s dinner and possibly tomorrow’s lunch. When I woke up this morning […]
Clams and Mussels Linguine. Spanish Chorizo and a Lager Reduction.
Today is Canadian Turkey Day. Is it ok to question its legitimacy? It was instated in 1957. That’s like yesterday. Why call it Thanksgiving and not celebrate it with the US the same day? No idea. In any case, people do observe it and it’s a national holiday and a great excuse to celebrate and eat […]
Shrimp Linguine : Pernod, Garlic and Lime : Shrimp Velouté
I failed miserably at finding my bottle of vermouth. The one I keep in the fridge. I can’t remember using all of it. Maybe not remembering what happened to it should be a hint… I had to go for the next thing I could find in there. A nice bottle of Pernod… I say nice […]
Ramen Noodles : Sardines : Dried Anchovies : Sriracha : Quail Yolk
Sometimes, you just throw whatever you find in the fridge in a pot and magical s%@# happens. THAT… happened to me last night. I didn’t bother checking seasoning or temperatures, pretty careless about the whole thing actually. I was just not in the OCD mood and literally threw this meal together last second almost angrily, well kinda, […]
Big Night : Cremini Mushroom and Mozzarella Arancini : Lamb Ragu Spaghetti
Say one evening you’re looking for recipes with one idea in mind… to blow somebody’s mind… in that case.. turning to Italy is the most effective choice. Italy has to mean “delicious” in some language I swear. I like cooking… I like cooking a lot, and I’ve tried many things in the kitchen over the last few […]
