So it annoys me that I can't find out anything about shoto. Can one of the sushi experts tell me more about it? I don't even know if I'm getting the name right, but I was told that it was fish excrement. Great stuff, by the way.

Just leave them out.

artichokes


trout with sprouts, capers, pine nuts

Is that artichoke dish from a recipe?
post #22175 of 25768
yep. One of the older Batali books. The trout was not.

got together with a bunch of friends on Sunday and made a big meal. I do all the prep and then my friend usually cooks the proteins and I think he was distracted that day, the fish came out a little under and the duck was way over. But both were still edible. Also, as you see, we like to drink while cooking and so things get kinda messy. lol

Daurade with lemongrass cream and oil (in hindsight I think I sauced too much)

the same duck breast with cherry tomatoes done in honey, lime juice, and ginger (the juices didnt reduce into a syrup this time, was kinda disappointed. last time was better overall - also, my friend accidentally burned my pommes maxim into charcoal while they were resting in the oven, lol)


I also made some homemade brik and then made shrimp (went looking for scampi but they were out of season here) in brik with pesto, and then had a bunch of the pesto leftover so we went to the convenience store and made two packs of spaghetti and tossed it in the sauce for a 4th dish:

I like that Super Mario plumbers apron you've got there

Did the photographer help with the cooking?

She looks happier than the chef in the picture.

typical bad boy shit.


At dinner, everybody lends a bit of a hand in the kitchen, or at least brings up some wine and bread and we post up in the kitchen. My friends have a baby, and so we all tend to go over there every time as they can't get out much yet.

I think it is shuto not shoto, but I believe it is salted bonito innards. I think it is pretty good.

Yeah, if there's anything close to a pine nut, which I can't think there are, it's undoubtedly a tree nut anyway so...

You probably have thought about it before, or even tried it, but how severe is her allergy? If it's just a mild reaction, she may be able to eat pine nut oil, since (according to Wikipedia) the raw nut proteins are more severe, and further roasting/exposure to heat (during cooking, for example), will reduce its effect even more.

Incredibly severe unfortunately, as is her allergy to whitefish. Even me cooking a fillet on the skillet with her in another room in the apartment made her throat swell up and she couldn't breathe. My younger brother growing up was severely allergic to eggs and any food with any egg in it, no matter how small an amount; so luckily I've been conditioned to carry around some sort of diphenhydramine at all times.

edit: Shame, pine nuts are teh awesome. Ground beef, pine nuts and asparagus is one of my favorite things.

Aw, that sucks. Probably no good idea to try the oil then. I don't see an alternative to leaving them out without replacement.

Hannosuke/Santouka at Mitsuwa.

Wish I had time to go to Tsujita but I don't line up for ramen.

I'm always satisfied with Mitsuwa.

Had a fantastic dinner at Providence the night before and Rivera on Friday was sublime. In my opinion those are the two fine dining spots worth noting in LA.
