I'm sure this thread already existed, but I couldn't find it!

Anyway, we need a thread for those food and cooking enthusiasts on the board. Use this thread to talk about your cooking experiences, post pictures of your food and share recipes!

I just made this:

Steamed thai-style sea bass and rice. It was so easy and absolutely delicious!! So much flavour.

You can find the recipe here:

I can't wait to make it again and try using a mix of different seafood. Definitely going to use some prawns, mmmm.

<3 Jamie Oliver! :daydream:

Seriously, make it! You basically just blend up a few ingredients to make a fucking awesome paste, mix it through some partially cooked rice, and chuck it in the oven with the fish. Takes about an hour with prep and cooking time included.

That sounds amazing! I never realised you were so into cooking. Please report regularly to this thread :)

p.s. we've made a lot of bread since I moved in. Plain white loaves, beer bread, fruit loaf and white loaves with added ingredients like olives, rosemary, sundried tomatoes and more. So much fun experimenting! There's a lot of trial and error involved, but I love the process and there is nothing better than eating a piece of freshly baked, still warm bread dipped in some olive oil and balsamic. Mmmm.

Do you have any bread tips? Favourite kinds of bread to bake?

bread is amazingly satisfying to make

moreso than any other food because you make it from scratch from just flour yeast and water

other cooking you can still see the istuff you started with and often the real star is the meat (or whatever) you used rather than the cooking itself
but bread is entirely made by you

i just bought a book on making bread and the basic recipe is 70 pages long
there are so many things to think about

also my favourite bread to make is fougasse because it has such a great shape

here is a pretty good recipe that uses chorizo which is great because the red oil bleeds into the dough

man that bread looks good, but, um, parmesan in french onion soup? it's gotta be swiss, man. gotta be swiss.

anyway i'm thinking about making soup tonight. gonna start with chicken stock. i think leek, turnip, carrot, onion, barley and maybe some white beans. white beans are like the only bean i don't have in my cupboard right now, but i have to buy the barley and turnips so i might as well get those too. and some french bread (sorry ron i just don't have time to bake bread rn :[ ).

there's a swanky restaurant in atlanta called JCT's kitchen, and their main appetizer has been on at least 2 food network shows
it's called angry mussels, and they are INCREDIBLE. I found a recipe very similar to what they use at JCT's, but they use benson's bacon which is some top notch pork, so a home-made version will never taste just as good as theirs

1lb mussels
1 cup dry white wine
2 tblsp
1″ thick slab of bacon, diced (or equivalent in sliced bacon)
1/2 red onion
3 scallions
1 diced seranno chili
2 cloves garlic
red pepper flakes (optional, set to taste)
cayenne pepper (optional, set to taste)
sourdough bread

Posted Image

first you render the bacon down until it's rather crispy. then remove the bacon, add the butter, and sautee the garlic, red onion, serano and the whites of the scallion in the grease. once everything is about cooked, you can add in your optional spices.

Posted Image

Next, add the white wine and mussels to the mixture and turn the pan on hot. Put the lid on it and let it simmer for ~5 minutes. Put in a deep serving dish and add the bacon and scallions.

Posted Image

At first when I saw the recipe, I thought it would need more liquid than it did, but the mussels release a good amount of juice that mix with the other flavors incredibly well. And of course, the bread is for dipping in the incredible sauce once you are done with the mussels

there aren't any scales, it's just skin.

Find the real thread you dumb bitch.

I tried looking for it but I don't remember what it was called. I searched 'cooking', 'food' and 'recipe'. Nothing. You find it.
