• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Since we're all stuck inside. Might as well share recipes.

X-post from Wuhan thread:


Even though the recipes are really basic, I always enjoy seeing cooking content that's not produced. Also nice to hear Symon talk through his process a little.

We normally do corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day. We cooked a turkey instead. Yep, we had Thanksgiving Dinner again, with a bird that’s been in the freezer since December.

I got stew meat and pork tenderloin from the grocery store yesterday. Going to make some beef stew in a few days. I cut the pork tenderloins in half, froze some of it. Tonight I SV'd one of them, made a sherry pan sauce, and some mashed Yukon Golds I had in the pantry. Kind of enjoying being creative with what I can find or have on hand.

Possible going to offend some people with this comment:

Traditional Texas chili (no tomatoes) is just meh. I like the idea in theory, but it really lacks umami. I'm going to try some tomato paste in my next batch. Maybe a touch of fish sauce or soy sauce.

Snowy plaguey day, making cookies with my Grandma’s recipe in bowl she used to make them. Passing on traditions to my sons.

Put a dough ball down last night. My homemade Italian sausage is one of the meats.

Not to ruin your night, but that ice cream bears an uncanny resemblance to Trump's coiffure.
LOL, I noticed that when I set it on the plate.

Kenji (Serious Eats) uses Fish sauce in his recipe.

Have a few plans today in this time of plaque...if I can wrest the ingredients from the horde of locusts that daily destroy the local grocery stores.

Have a stash of achiote paste and we have five, 5#'ish pieces of pork butt in the freezer that was there for sausage making purposes. If I can get the citrus will put that down to marinade overnight and then line our cast iron dutch oven with banana leaves for a long, slow and smokey ride on the KJ for some authentic cochinita pibil that will make great tacos or just over rice.

Next, the local Asian market is now selling pairs of frozen LI duck legs for about $5 a pair. Grabbed two pairs so will make two pouches of confit overnight in a sous vide for later use.

Lastly, if I can land a cabbage, we have all the other fixings for okonomiyaki tonight including slices of my homemade bacon. I really suggest you guys try making this at home. We've been doing the Osaka. Kewpie is easy to find locally but used Amazon to buy the pancake mix, okonomiyaki sauce, and the little tempura bits.

I decided to use the pancake mix from Japan vs. making it as there's this veggie that is grated into it I can't find plus it looks like a pain in the ass. It's gooey and ectoplasmic. The mix covers you for that bit of mouth feel in the better.

Tonight's, if I can land a cabbage (a phrase I thought I would never say) will have a layer of fried noodles reminiscent of the Hiroshima style.

I think I have to completely strip and reseason my Lodge skillet. The seasoning has been flaking off ever since that mayo sear debacle.

I kind of want to wait until I have multiple pieces to do since it wastes so much energy.
