Title: What have you been eating?
Post by: Jubal on November 08, 2014, 06:23:50 PM
Seems to be the obvious food chat thread to start :)

I had toasted sandwiches earlier. And I might just eat some garlic bread now, which is horrendously unhealthy of me but on the plus side means not having to go anywhere for hot food.

Eww.
I've eaten much much stuff today because of alcohols and sleep deprivations. Largely freshish baked goods from sainsburys but also a pretty decent tomato, beetroot and salad sandwich. And some icecream for breakfast. And now I'm going to toast a little baguette thing and fill with with fried onion and mushroom and purple sprouting broccoli heads and mustard and cheese and omonomonom.

I intended to go out and buy food but I'm feeling too flat from piling through masters' forms (or rather compiling an extensive list of questions on them).

Soooo... should I do more toasties, or more garlic bread, given those are the options from my fridge? :p
Title: Re: What have you been eating?

Mmmm toasties.Or go and buy food, I like doing mundane armadillo that involves movement after stuff like studying or similar.

You might be thinking of a film called Delicatessen (IMDb link (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101700/)). It features a butcher in a post-apocalyptic world; he's also a landlord, whose tenants occasionally "disappear".
Title: Re: What have you been eating?

Title: Re: What have you been eating?
Post by: Jubal on November 17, 2014, 07:24:36 PM
Sweeney Todd I believe is the classic example, dating from the mid 19th century. I haven't seen Delicatessen but it sounds like a riff on the same theme.

The dynasty of Fox survived another meal. It was delicious. I'm still amazed that I've found anything worthwhile to do with minced turkey.
Title: Re: What have you been eating?
Post by: Pentagathus on December 11, 2014, 10:55:20 AM
Why are you trying to find things to do with minced turkey? Turkey sucks the big one and its expensive.
Title: Re: What have you been eating?
Post by: Flamekebab on December 11, 2014, 02:51:09 PM
Minced turkey is relatively cheap, about £5 per kilo (vs. £4 per kilo for beef). Originally we stumbled upon a recipe and curiosity compelled us to try it. After all, turkey does indeed suck the big one! Remarkably it doesn't in the recipe we use. I was as shocked as you!

A whole one is like chicken only drier and less tasty in every conceivable way. Mince can at least be encouraged to become something nice!

Meanwhile, they're not eaten yet, but I have just cooked 750g or so of Brussels sprouts and stuck them in my own freezer.

Now to discover how well they freeze...

Oh, also had dinner with a different friend on wednesday night, her fiancee baked a chicken which had been molested with a beer bottle. It was very good. As was the herring thing he made. And the bacon thing. And the potato wedges. It was all good really. And the beer.

Well, when you put it that way....
Pesto is used in a lot of recipes of seen around the net.
However, I've never used it since it's not that popular around these parts and usually isn't easy to come by.  :-[

It's useful if you really can't cook, you just buy a little bottle, dump half of it in pasta, hey presto (or should that be "hey pesto"), it feels far more like a valid meal.

So I didn't have the ingredients for spicing up chicken appendages. Therefore I made up a sauce out of paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, butter and a couple of other things I've probably forgotten. Guess you could say I was.......winging it  ;D

Made a barbeque sauce this morning and smothered some pork in it, at the moment it's cooking. After 10 hours I'll see how pulled this pork will be.

EDIT: Argh, failed horribly. The sauce had absolutely no taste, couldn't tell I put anything on it and the pork was not pulled at all. It's weird, followed a Nigella recipe to the letter, very unhapy. :/

We had chilli again today. I also made a 15 minute pasta bake yesterday - pasta, garlic, "Italian Seasoning", salt, pepper, tinned tomatoes and tomato purée topped with cheese - like being back at uni. The spring onions for the salad we had planned had shrivelled up :( .

You ever do carbonara pasta bakes SotK? I've wanted to but haven't tried it yet because I'm notoriously bad at pasta. I didn't know it was possible either :P

Sweet potato chilli pepper chips (paprika, ground black pepper) with....something out the freezer /shrug.

Despite my generally messed up first week here I've been doing OK for food - nothing exciting, though I did make slightly classy hot dogs the other day (which is to say I used decent sausages that were on offer rather than those icky reconstituted things that are normally sold as hot dog sausages). I feel I should learn to do more rice dishes, as Selly Oak seems to be better for buying rice (there's a place here that literally sells it by the sack) than pasta, though pasta generally seems easier to do things with quickly.

I made chicken with ramen noodles today.

I've sliced chicken breast into bite sized squares, chopped up some onion into squares, added chicken seasoning mix, a pinch of salt, a lot of ground paprika, a pinch of chilli, some white pepper, and a moderate amount of basil. I marinated it in oil and a pinch of white wine (Riesling if I remember correctly).

Once the chicken was done, I added ramen noodles and mixed them up together on a light temperature for a minute or two.

It was pure perfection.  ;D

I also made a similar curry version not so while ago.

I usually either do open assembly sandwiches or toasted sandwiches. Occasionally I have to buy sandwiches when I'm out, which is less nice. Though the other continual issue is that there are almost no bakeries in Britain so fresh bread for good sandwiches is hard to come by.

Also, that is a really nice tankardy thing!

Really, any crumbly biscuit that turns "cakey" when wet would work.
Really I'm not sure why Arnotts haven't extended over there, I feel like Ripple biscuits and tim tams would be big hits in other countries.

Sure, Australia has it's problems but to me I feel like we have the best junk food. Well, I guess that may not be considered a plus.

They probably would, but we have our own well-established biscuit companies, selling broadly similar products to a pretty much saturated market. It's very difficult to break into a new market in a country thousands of miles away; even within the European Union, I don't think there's very much trade in things like biscuits across national borders.

I've not generally been eating a lot because I need to cut weight but then last night I misjudged how much rum is in a small bottle of rum and I ended up eating a pizza and some things that came with the pizza which IIRC were potato wedges and I think I ate some birthday cake too. Weight cut may not go so well. Also none of those things were veganish. Ahh well.

That sounds amazing.
Weigh ins tomorrow night so I've been eating prunes, lots of prunes. But also its too late to lose or gain much dry body weight at this point so I've been eating delicious tasty fats again. Omnomnom.

Sadly, no recipe, my friend didnt know since it was her mom that sent it to her :/


And I am actually just a few pounds away from being underweight so I should probably eat up but... ugh, kinda find it hard. After 20years of being a fatty and finally losing almost half of myself over five years, its hard to break out of mentality. Plus, I did let myself gain a ton of weight about a year ago when I slipped into the underweight category and was feeling like crap, but frankly it hasnt improved my wellbeing much. Been cutting again since and finally in my desired range I've been hovering in for a while.

So little rant aside, umm nothing noteworthy! Just a steady diet of awesome Korean food as I live in a Korean area of LA. Gimme mah kimcheez. And I do enjoy a mean scone and coffee every now and then :)

I don't have any pics but I did get around to making chimichangas!


Made a light batter from bicarb soda and covered chicken strips which I then deep fried, put the tortillas on a pancake frying pan for just a few seconds each so they wouldn't tear. Heated some refried beans and put the chicken and beans in the tortilla along with a little garlic and cumin, used egg whites to stick the tortilla in place and deep fried the whole thing. Served it with salad.


Chicken in oyster sauce


Cook noodles in a pan of boiling water for about 2 minutes, then drain and leave them until the end.


Cook some chicken cubes, garlic and ginger in a wok until they were almost done, stir fry some veg on top- I went for carrots, spring onion, green beans and red pepper. When they've softened but still have some bite add de-seeded red chillis, a little shaoxing rice wine and enough oyster sauce to make everything sticky but not drenched then finished cooking noodles.


To finish the noodles, empty the wok of everything else, add a drop of groundnut oil and a drop of sesame oil, heat until it smokes then add noodles (I also added more de-seeded chillis but that may be excessive for some) which will be clumped by now and pour on light and dark soy sauce at about 70/30 dark to light, keep turning the noodles with tongs or wooden spoon or chopsticks and they'll separate again.


To cook any chinese food: Add garlic, ginger and spring onion to anything.


For instance I cooked some pork belly in the oven, cut it into strips, added garlic, ginger and spring onions to it and threw it in the wok with great vengeance. Steamed some veg and served with jasmine rice. That's real authentic chinese cooking according to my main man Ken Hom.

Yeah pizza's pretty bitching. Managed to make a cheese free pizza that was actually pretty good (put marmite in the pizza sauce) but I made a really armadillo base because I couldn't be bothered with proper bread dough. Is it a pretty simple dough to make?

Yum that looks scrumptious! I'm a big stir-fry guy myself as well (tho lately been skimping on the rice). Back when I was interning between college semesters and trying to be cheap I'd routinely dump one of those frozen veggie mixes and chicken in a pan to go over rice. For flavor I used the Ragu/Preggo tomato-y pasta sauces.


I tried to make that again a while back, and it was predictably terrible xD I like to think I improved in that respect haha.
Title: Re: What have you been eating?
Post by: Clockwork on February 28, 2016, 10:17:14 AM

@Penty - Yeah, 0.5lb strong white flour to 7g quick yeast (I know, metric and imperial...It's a quirk) and some water hot to your hand but not boiling. You want just enough water to make the dough pliable but not so it's wet. I realise how that sounds, add water but so it doesn't get wet....


After that's all mixed up, leave it for 5 mins, put more flour on a surface that you'll be kneading the dough on. Knead the dough for 5 mins, leave for 5 then knead again for 5. At this point make sure you've got all your kit that's going on them and a pizza tray out or whatever and you're ready to roll them.


EDIT: If you're going cheese free, one thing I like is hoi-sin as a base and putting stuff on top of that. Fried pork is best imo.

You do so much cooking! :O


Oh yeah! I'm planning meals 2 days in advance, checking we have ingredients at that time and getting what we need. 2 days long enough to pick things up while short enough that everything should stay fresh. It takes up rather a lot of time I have to say, but since time is something I'm not using, I might as well ;)


Plus I quite like it and it's something I'm getting slowly better at. I really don't have a knack for it but I get so much practice that I'm just trial and error'ing to betterment :P


@Jub Cooking for one is sometimes harder mate, I know when I'm home alone for a week or whatever I just descend into a deliciously easy pit of frozen burgers xD I've been wanting to try making those crumpet pizzas!


Tonight I'm cooking 4.3 kilos of pork. The thing is an absolute beast.

I can finally present, from the Jubal school of totally incompetent cheffery (because cheffery is a word now), the walnut and blue cheese Crumpet Pizza! To make, simply lightly toast as many crumpets as desired, squish liberal (and I mean liberal, go full JS Mill on this one) quantities of blue cheese on top, add bits of walnut on top of that, 5 mins at gas 6, and ta-da :)

I think I'm back to a few days of the "cook carbohydrate, add some fried goods or vegetables, eat" strategy.

Cooked steak today for I think the first time. It went okay, but then again everyone here likes their steak blue so it was more a case of the meat looking at the griddle than actually cooking.


Regardless, I made a pretty great rub for it, kind of peppery, kind of barbecuey.
Title: Re: What have you been eating?
Post by: Flamekebab on March 07, 2016, 02:16:43 AM
I like a good peppercorn sauce with steak. Admittedly that's basically single cream, a dab of proper soy sauce (none of that watery Blue Dragon stuff), and a buttload of black pepper. NOM.


Tonight we had fish in panko crumbs with a sauce from some sachet brought back from Sweden. To go with it I fried up some garlic and onions and then mixed those into rice. Pretty easy but rather tasty.


My main take away from this is that the fiver we spent on that rice cooker (http://www.tefal.co.uk/instructions-for-use/Products/Food-and-Drink-preparation/Multicooker-and-electric-Pressure-cooker/Rice-cooker/Rice-Cooker-RK701115/csp/1500633239) was worth every last penny. The super cheap rice (~40p per kilo) and some salt and it turns out perfectly every time. NOM.

Good news everyone! I have come to the conclusion that since mussels and clams and such have no brains or CNS they very probably don't have any sort of self awareness so I should have no ethical qualms about eating them as they are effectively just plants that happen to be made out of delicious tasty meat. Therefore I have been eating pasta with broccoli and mussels and a vegan creamy cheesy sauce and it has been wonderful.

Nice one! I've wanted to try my hand at that but I haven't really thought about it for a while.


I made beef pot roast! It was great, used tomato paste (you can use actual tomatoes but I don't like the texture of cooked tomatoes), bbq sauce, worcs sauce, onion, garlic and honey then put in as many carrots as could fit. Then topped the slow cooker up with water and let it cook for 7 hours before adding bulgur wheat to it then cooking for a further 2 hours. Beef was tender af, sauce was vegetable sweet. I'd probably add some hot sauce next time but then 99% of my cooking is adding hot sauce.

Fresh bread is gorgeous. I sorta wish I'd eaten two of them last night, they're never so good in subsequent days.

And ooh, nice :) Can't get behind the hot sauce thing, and don't have a slow cooker, but that does sound great. I went back to pasta today, standard frying pancetta, half a chopped onion, and a clove of garlic and then mixing w/pesto and pasta.

Smoked salmon is not quite regular fish tho; while it has fishy taste it's a category of its own. I used to hate fish growing up but after Japan and some good sushi I changed my mind ;p


As for my eating, I just tried Halusky, noodle-dumplings in goat cheese with bacon. I'm not big on noodles but these were daaaamn good. Altho we don't have this specific dish Slovakian food is quite similar to Polish, unsurprisingly. We have "kluski leniwe" which are bit similar but thicker and served sweet most of the time.

What sorts of things/threads do you think it would be good to have more of?


Well, anything partaining to my interests hehe ;) But in general, I always find the "what game are you playing / movie watching / book reading / etc. right now?" type megathreads to be pretty popular in other forums. Otherwise, I think its more about a good community with sufficiently similar interests than one particular type of thread.

I'm in Spain at the moment. I've just had some "bacalao dorado" - the name translates as "gilded cod", so I wasn't quite sure what I was going to get. It turned out to be flaked cod, mixed with scrambled egg, chopped boiled potatoes (I think) and some other vegetable a bit like beansprouts. Very tasty and filling :) I think I've had something similar in Portugal, under the name "bacalhao a Bras".

CG: you should visit Portugal some time. They reputedly have a different way of cooking cod (bacalhao) for each day of the year, and plenty of other fish on the menu too. I'm sure you'd find something you liked.

I bought some rosemary recently. It turns out it goes well on my bread recipe and on the crumpet pizzas :)

Chicken is nice :) I feel I should eat less meat & dairy in general, but I'm not entirely sure what to eat instead. I'm not a huge fan of cooked pulses; I should probably try more vegetarian pasta options but a lot of those seem to be either quite dull or quite costly.

Some of the first cooking experiments in the new house!

A first khachapuri for the new place:

(http://i.imgur.com/8FxHTJM.jpg)

...and then some dumplings (filled with a mix of tomatoes, onion, garlic, and walnuts). The first steaming set are fresh ones, the browned ones have been re-heated by frying them (which was a considerable improvement, especially given my rather inadequate dough-making skills). The dough/style of dumpling was loosely based on a recipe for khinkali, but with a very different filling and made so inadequately they a) don't deserve the name and b) need a knife and fork to eat, which the internet assures me is definitely the wrong way to eat khinkali!

I've been doing a little vegetarian experiment mostly not eating any meat. I've been trying all the vegan faux meat products and they're surprisingly good.



The lightlife Italian sausage was damn good, the tofurkey deli slices pretty good too. the morning star breakfast patties are good too, but they're more like falafel haha. None of it really tastes like meat, but the flavor is good on its own and the lightlife texture was pretty close




I could see myself eating more of this stuff in lieu of meat but... I donno, I'm not entirely convinced an industry produced reconstructed soy product with 30 other additives is really healthier than antibiotic infused chicken
Title: Re: What have you been eating?
Post by: Jubal on June 20, 2017, 12:40:15 PM
Yeah, I think the main reason if I went vegetarian (which I probably won't) would be wider environmental impact rather than personal health, stop quite so much rainforest being mowed down to farm cows and so on. I am quite interested by some of these new pseudomeat products, and the possibility of actually lab-growing meat, though; could well be that in a few decades animal farming will be a much more minority activity.

I've been eating weirdly the last week or so, I've been tired all the time for as long as I can really remember and apparently this is a common symptom of autoimmune diseases (although this is just mental fatigue for me, I've never had an physical symptoms apart from mild skin conditions). Since my mum was diagnosed as gluten intolerant (actually I think she was originally misdiagnosed as full celiac) for seven years I thought perhaps I might have celiac. And gluten free diets have been shown to alleviate symptoms in other autoimmune disorders. So going gluten free seems worth trying (although I'm going to have to start eating gluten again soon so I can get an accurate test for celiac).
Now a gluten free diet alone is not that weird. But since it seems a lot of folk have had success dealing with chronic fatigue, depression etc by using elimination diets I thought I'd give it a go. So basically my diet for the last week has consisted of a fairly limited variety of veg, a portugal load of meat, bit of rice and some fruit smoothie. Except for the entire bar of chocolate I ate today because I'm coldly and armadillo.
What am I doing?
Why?
Eurgh.

Moved back to the Kitchen, and pinned.

I don't know what to eat this evening. Between bad RSI and general exhaustion and a lack of hot water for washing up, kitchen stuff is really tricky at the moment. Might be a cheese on toast night, I guess. I have mostly been keeping a normal diet up during quarantine, but everything does feel just that much more effort than usual.

I just had pizza today. The Jubal Food Forecast is fairly unexciting this week - I bought a new bottle of gin and some plants as bonus shopping items on Friday, so didn't get so much variety of food stuff. I also forgot to get tonic, so I ended up having a gin with lemongrass cordial for family easter drinks today - there wasn't a whole lot of taste of gin in it, the cordial was a bit overpowering, but it was nice enough.

I am getting to eat outside a bit though, which is nice, though my table seems to need constant cleaning more or less which is a pain.

The local butchers sell whole chickens for 3 or 4 Euros right now, and the local Turkish grocer has lots of fresh herbs, so I have been stuffing some chickens with things that grew or were imported to western Eurasia in 1492.  I may freeze one but freezer space in my shared housing is very limited (especially due to former roomies who forget food when they leave).

My diet continues to be boring but balanced, though I'll try posting some stuff about herb/kitchen gardening soon as I'm trying to do some more of that - I have big bunches of oregano and rosemary drying at the moment. I've also got strawberry and tomato plants outside which will hopefully do well, and I planted cucumbers and didn't expect them to all germinate and now I have twelve or thirteen tiny cucumber plants and need to somehow obtain a lot of large flowerpots without breaking the proverbial bank.

In more direct food production, I did make biscuits recently which turned out overly crumbly but chocolatey and edible.

I've just had a pastel de nata (a.k.a. Portuguese custard tart) from my local bakery. It's run been by a Portuguese couple for several years, after the previous owners sold up. They do a good range of traditional Portuguese baked goods, many of them sweet rather than savoury - Portuguese culture has a pronounced "sweet tooth", as do I, so this suits me well. I've visited Portugal a lot in the past, and intend to again, so though I can't do so at the moment, this helps me bring to mind happier times, past and future.

For anyone in the Cambridge (UK) area at any point, it's the Norfolk Street Bakery (https://www.norfolkstbakery.co.uk/). A little off the beaten track in terms of location, but worth seeking out.

@Glaur: Indeed I don't think I've been to that bakery - maybe next time I'm in town!

@Dubs: That chicken dish looks fantastic :) I never do bigger meat dishes really, the only levels I have to cater at are "party" for which meat is too much effort for the numbers or "one" in which case meat is too much effort for one person. So I've never really learned to cook chicken despite it being a major staple: I usually have some meat in my diet but only via bits of speck/pancetta/kabanossi added to a pasta, or ham or salami for lunches. But I do like those bigger meat dishes on occasion.



Some ordinary recent fare chez Jubal:

As you can see, my basic attitude to how dinner works is "cook basal carbohydrate, add small bits of other ingredients and something vaguely sauce like". The pseudo greek pasta salad (cook pasta, add chopped green olives, tomato, cucumber and feta, basic dressing made by shaking up a little bit of oil and vinegar in a 3:1 ratio) is a particularly nice option and manages to feel pseudo healthy whilst also containing cheese which is a win-win. I'm getting better at rice, too.

Also I made biscuits a little while back:

(https://i.imgur.com/Qo29YJE.jpg)

They had some structural integrity issues so I needed to bake them for longer, which turned out to be too long, but they were very edible. Super simple butter + sugar + flour recipe with raisins and dark chocolate chips mixed in.

I've also been trying some asparagus pasta recipes - asparagus seems to be a comparatively big thing in Austria, which works for me as I quite like the stuff. Using creme fraiche and lemon juice mixed as the pasta sauce with it worked nicely. Drink-wise I currently have all of white wine, fizzy water, and cordials on hand, so pfirschspritzers and kaiserspritzers are both possibilities (I'm not sure how well a lemongrass spritzer would work. I might try that sometime). Not been doing much seriously experimental though.

To celebrate getting the first proofs of my first book, I gilded a chicken (baked it in egg-pepper-ginger-salt sauce).  The original recipe in the Harleian cookbook had saffron in the sauce; I served it with saffron rice instead.  The original used ginger powder, I used fresh ginger.  The original thickened the sauce with flour until it was like fritter paste, probably so it would stay on the bird while it turned on the spit, but my kitchen is not equipped with one of those (maybe if they lent me the keep of Festung Höhensalzburg ...)  I also stuffed the body cavity with some mushrooms and onion and herbs which I needed to use up.

Some of my housemates have been cooking very elabourate dinners because of Ramadan.  I may switch my big meal to lunch so I am not in the way.

So, I had a salad recently with some purslane from my garden, plus lettuce, gorgonzola, prosciutto ham, pear slices, and a white vinegar/olive oil mix dressing. Worked well :)

(https://i.imgur.com/1aivnw9.jpg)

Also I made crumpets! I've had crumpet rings sitting around for a while. They went fine, a bit flatter than I'd hoped and I'm not sure why that is, but still basically crumpety, they tasted right. I didn't try keeping any to toast later this time, but may do on a future occasion. I had a few with jam/honey to start with (Caradilis dropped by for the first time in months and also found them edible), and then did the below ones with cheese, herbs and walnuts for supper.

Unfortunately one of the rings broke when I washed them which is a bit rubbish - the joins in the metal seem a bit poorly made.

That looks interesting. What's the recipe?

450 g beef (thin sliced sirloin or hamburger)
Canola oil
3 cloves garlic
1 large yellow onion
1 cm long piece of fresh ginger
*1 stalk lemongrass (I more often use this in a similar recipe with white pepper replacing the ginger but I wanted to use it up)
5 mL sugar
30 mL Vietnamese clear fish sauce
Dried and hacked coriander leaves

Hack onion, lemongrass, and ginger fine.  Oil frying pan and sautée beef and ginger until lightly brown.  Throw in vegetables and spices and stir fry about 3 minutes.  Garnish with coriander leaves and serve over rice.

Gilded another chicken in egg yolk-flour batter spiced with saffron, ginger chunks, salt, and pepper after the Harleian MS (Pleyn Delit 2e no. 94 Chike Endored).  I found that this was not such a success, the batter ended up too thick and baked into a hard dough instead of a soft moist crust.  It probably works better if you apply the mixture immediately after mixing it and use a brush to spread it over the bird.

I had some pork that needed eating.

Because of some life circumstances, I decided to try out the sauce where the cinnamon, ginger, sugar, and almond are in a pommegranite base (Santich's The Original Mediterranean Cuisine p. 57).  Make sure that the cinnamon dominates, saith Mestre Robert!

I recently finally went and found a Russian supermarket, which had been recommended to me by a colleague a while back, and sells a decent array of foods from former USSR countries. Unfortunately it doesn't have some of the things I'd most like, like Sulguni cheese, but it does have a comparatively very reasonably priced Georgian wine selection and some mini khinkali which turned out more edible than I'd expected (though one can't eat them in the proper way for khinkali, they're too small to hold by the twist of the dough).

The aforementioned mini khinkali:

Also some other recent meals. A simple salad & bread dinner when I ran out of other stuff:

And tonight's meal which was roasted garden vegetables (see the kitchen gardening thread (https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6152.msg141038#msg141038) for why I suddenly had to eat the veg) and garlic with toasted nuts in a pasta, which was very nice:
