Title: It's Time For Food
Post by: Simon on June 17, 2010, 02:21:49 PM
I saw this recipe for chocolate stout cake and just had to share. I know it's not very rock and roll but I don't care. I'm a home counties white boy so there's no pretending that I'm anything but. I also like it because the site is called The Hungry Mouse.  ;D

Title: Re: It's Time For Food
Post by: AmazingWilf on February 04, 2011, 08:42:27 PM
I made chilli today...

500g minced beef
500g minced pork
2 large onions
5 tins tomatoes
6 tins various beans (I use 2 of pinto, 2 of borlotti and 2 of cannelloni)
1 tsp hot chilli powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp ground cumin
1 beef stock cube

Finely chop the onions, then cook them in a large saucepan in a little sunflower oil. Once they've softened add the minced beef and brown it, making sure it gets broken up. Then add the minced pork and brown that, too.

Keeping the pan on  the heat, add the tinned tomatoes, and the beans (drain them first!), and stir well. Add the spices, followed by a little water from the kettle, then crumble the stock cube in and stir well again. Bring the pan to the boil, then cover and turn the heat right down so the mixture is simmering gently. Let it do this for three hours (or more, if you can bear it - the smell is amazing), then season to taste and serve with a carb of your choice (rice, bread, baked potato or even chips) topped with soured cream and grated cheese.

This makes a pretty mild chilli - if you like a botty-burner then add more chilli powder and cayenne. You can also use finely chopped, deseeded chilli peppers, and fry them with the onions before adding the meat.

Makes enough for about ten people, and gets better after it's been frozen.

I think maybe the word you were searching for was "tasty", but perhaps not "right". My favourite breakfast place in the USA (aside from a fantastic family-run diner in Canton, upstate New York, was IHOP (International House of Pancakes). Just about all you can eat for a fiver: 2 Eggs, 2 bacon, a "sausage", hash browns, tomato, mushrooms and a side order of pancakes topped with ice cream, maple syrup and jam. If you visit one, don't be alarmed at the high-pitched whining you hear as you step inside - that's just the sound blood makes and it strains it's way through the clogged arteries of everyone in the place.  ;)

For sh1ts and giggles, here's their menu...

     Yes, IHOP is great.  I think we have a lot of fantastic places to eat but IHOP is one of the better chain restaurants.  Breakfast is one of the meals I enjoy cooking and do reasonably well.

Our local chippy closed down, which is a shame as it was triffic.

Cod and chips out of the paper can't be beat, specially if you're at the seaside.

We had some home-made vegetable soup, with big hunks of bread, also home-made (well, out of the breadmaking machine), followed by pancakes with lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar. Proper tasty, it was.

Yvette made lasagne this evening, and it was yummy. The meat sauce was one that I made a couple of weeks back to freeze up when we had spaghetti bolognese, but the béchamel sauce is Y's speciality and it's brill.

I inadvertently cooked an industrial quantity of roast potatoes this evening - I bought a bag of dark red Duke of York spuds from Sainsbury's and tonight I got them out of the fridge and peeled them all, thinking it was a 1 kg bag, and only noticed, after peeling them, that it was a 1.5kg bag. Having peeled them, I obviously had to cook them, and then the family manfully managed to eat them all (husband, 16-y-o son, almost 14-y-o son, and me). So I have yet to cook a larger quantity of roast potatoes than the family will eat, which is quite scary.

You can never have too many roast potatoes. They're just too damn good.


Title: Re: It's Time For Food
Post by: roger on February 14, 2011, 01:11:18 AM
when I was growing up, we had a roast nearly every Sunday.  my Mom would put it in the oven, with some potatoes and maybe carrots, and then we would go to church (my Dad was he minister).  when we returned home after church, the roast would be done (the smell permeated the house!  delicious!) and the potatoes were sooooo good.

while eating Sunday dinner, we would usually listen to the music that my Dad loved, usually Brahms or Wagner.  some big classical piece.  I was thrilled when I finally got to sing the Brahms Requiem, since I had heard it so many times as a child.

thanks for the memories!

There's something that happens to the fibres of meat products when they've been cooked and then frozen that, when defrosted and reheated, enhances flavours.

I'm not a fan of lamb meat, except in kebabs (if you can call that meat), so all pies around here are beef. In fact one way or another, beef pie is a standard Tuesday meal in this household.

Simples!

Soften some onions, fry the mince with them, add tinned tomatoes, some water, a beef stock cube, chilli powder, cumin, Cayenne pepper and paprika. Add your beans, then let it bubble gently for at least three hours. Season to taste.

Tonight, #2 son is away at Scout camp, so we are taking the opportunity to have a serious chilli con carne.

It contains a small can of these
(http://pics.mexgrocer.com/images/1723.jpg)

which have a fantastic deep lingering smoky hotness - I tried a small slice of one as I was chopping them up to add them and could still feel the heat 10 minutes later and will be served with rice and home-grown courgettes.

Knew this thread was on here somewhere - not dieting so I thought I'd better find it:
Bike rallies are generally not for the faint-hearted food-wise. They're generally worse than rock festivals in the 1970's. The Ogri rally is a bit different, no burger wagons, they appear to borrow a complete army field kitchen. This means sitting down at a real table and tucking in to huge helpings of Beef in Ale 'pie' and bangers & mash. Curries and chilli are also options. It may not be as healthy as a banana, and may explain why I'm moving a bit sluggish (that last meal of bangers & mash before I left the rally this evening was a. superb and b. massive). I'll have to go for a walk tomorrow to make up for it and make room for tomorrow evening's curry.

Mince, carrots and mushrooms in a bourgignon sauce (with a little extra wine) topped off hotpot style with lightly fried slices of potato.

Made cauliflower cheese last night - and will be eating the leftovers today.

Has to have boiled eggs chopped into six with the egg slicer, has to have crispy bacon slivers, has to be good mature cheese and has beaten egg (with a bit of nutmeg in) and more cheese to make a lovely topping.

Can only have it a couple of times a year as it is calorie central, but oh my it's lovely.

I brought some home and passed them round at work - most people spat it out and didn't talk to me for a few days but a chinese girl asked me if I thought she was pregnant or something. Apparently it's supposed to be good for pregnant women in Hong Kong. Anyway if you know what Sarsparilla tastes like, it's kind of similar but a bit more salty.

Post by: hoboslobo on September 22, 2011, 10:08:36 PM
Trampe means stamp upon in Norwegian.

Here is the full etymology of the word tramp.

Quote
tramp (v.)
late 14c., "walk heavily, stamp," from M.L.G. trampen "to stamp," from P.Gmc. *tramp- (cf. Dan. trampe, Swed. trampa "to tramp, stamp," Goth. ana-trimpan "to press upon"), probably from a variant of the P.Gmc. source of trap. Related: Tramped; tramping. The noun meaning "person who wanders about, vagabond" is first recorded 1660s, from the verb. Sense of "steamship which takes cargo wherever it can be traded" (as opposed to one running a regular line) is attested from c.1880. The meaning "promiscuous woman" is from 1922.

And here is a picture of the amazing Trampe bicycle lift.

I'm getting rather good at cooking mince. Tonight, I just had a bowl of the stuff with a chopped onion, red kidney beans and a Loyd Grossman brand of smokey bacon flavour bolognese sauce type stuff. Loved it! We didn't have any chilli in, so it was the next best thing. Cor, I love chilli. I intend to make one with a homemade sauce one day, something that's full of flavour and has a mighty kick to it. One day, not today.

Anyway, I'm still looking to be cooking the Christmas dinner this year, so I need to be getting in the mood for burning cooking food.

Title: Re: It's Time For Food
Post by: AmazingWilf on December 06, 2011, 08:38:23 PM
Okay, here goes - this makes enough to feed loads of people, or alternatively not quite so many and loads to freeze.

Ingredients
500g minced beef (it doesn't matter if it's the cheap stuff)
500g minced pork
2 large onions
6 can of beans - I don't use red kidney, they overpower chilli - I usually have mixture of pinto, cannellini and black-eyed
5 cans of tomatoes (again, cheap is fine)
A couple of fresh tomatoes (if you happen to have some...it's fine if they're a bit squashy)
1 de-seeded red chilli pepper, finely chopped
1 de-seeded green chilli pepper, finely chopped
Chilli powder (to taste - I use about a rounded teaspoon)
Cumin (say, 2 teaspoons)
Paprika (2 teaspoons is fine)
Cayenne pepper (1 teaspoon)
1 beef stock cube
Water

Method
Soften the onions in a little oil
Add the fresh chillis, stir for a bit
Add the minced beef and brown it
Add the minced pork and brown it
Add the tinned tomatoes - if they're not chopped, then chop 'em up! - and stir
Add the beans (after draining them!) - stir
Add the fresh tomatoes, chopped - stir
Add the stock cube, crumbled - stir
Add enough water to cover the whole mix - stir
Add the spices - stir

...and that's pretty much it. You leave it to bubble away on a low heat for at least three hours, preferably longer, though it's hard because the smell will drive you insane. I like to eat it topped with grated cheese and either soured cream or plain yogurt, served with hunks of fresh bread, but it's equally good with rice.

I find that this amount does four meals for the three of us, and maybe a bit left over for a lunch at work. It actually tastes better after it's been frozen.

You can adjust the spices to taste - this is a reasonably mild one, cuz Huw doesn't like it too spicy. You can leave out the fresh chillis if you're feeling lazy - I often do, in fact.

There you go - Dave's Chilli, as it's known in our house :)

As well as leaving out the chilli seeds, you've left out 2 vital ingredients - garlic and oregano. No chilli is complete without them!


Title: Re: It's Time For Food

Well, that's something of a moot point. Neither are traditional, and the stronger flavours will swamp the oregano anyway.

However, I had to smile when I discovered that the Director who is signing this off is a vegetarian.

Now, look at the menu (http://www.bodeansbbq.com/_menus/may_2011_table_menu_for_group_final.pdf).

It's pork that's BBQ marinaded (often in bourbon or such like) and cooked very slowly and then kind of shredded like the duck in Chinese restaurants.

I only drink tea when I'm at friends' houses, so only two or three times a week if that. For January, I'm not drinking it at home. I think I've only had one coffee this month - again, at a friend's house.

I'll be doing myself another chili tonight. We've got proper peppers and tomatoes in the fridge, so a) someone's got to use them before they shrivel and b) the more veggies, the better.  :)

We had smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms and a glass of fresh orange juice for breakfast, and then crab with salad leaves and coleslaw for lunch.

I did the eating and the washing up.

Chili brother!  ;D  Though I didn't have the chippycrisps, I did have a rather nice home-made chili as planned. One whole red pepper, an onion, a tomato, two chestnut mushrooms, some mince (not enough in my opinion), about a third of a jar of Asda's hottest chili slop (not hot at all, pah!) and a can of assorted Mexican-style beans. I made a fair bit less than usual and I'm still feeling full from it.

No Ben And Jerry's in sight, but if I lose enough bulk, I may treat myself to one. (That'll be in April then, hopefully.)

We've been seated. The menu is extensive...too extensive ! Some things are not available...generally the ones I was choosing between...

Gone for the prawn linguine.

Apparently it has been this wickedly crazy manic since it opened two weekends ago.

I would suggest that £4 for the bread selection represents a mark-up of SW proportions. It may well be described as 'rustic' by some, maybe 'been left out to dry for a few days' by others.

The lady next to us just sent back her main course - but that's pukka - if you don't like it then send it back, it's Jamie's way. Innit. Crazy wicked ! Boom !


Title: Re: It's Time For Food
Post by: A James on February 12, 2012, 03:26:42 PM
She just sent her food back again - the pasta was not sufficiently cooked. To be fair to the place, because of the type of dish it is not meant to be over-cooked.

Bloody plebs. She'll be after a reduction to her bill...

"Since I was a teenager I've been totally besotted by the love, passion and verve for food, family and life that just about all Italian people have, never mind where they're from or how rich or poor they might be."

Wise words from J.

His linguine was a bit tough, and the lake of water lurking beneath was unbecoming; the turkey was somewhat overpowered by the lemon taste. He'll get away with it in StA.

I made a pasta salad thing last night. Contains pasta (no sh*t, Sherlock), peas, sweetcorn, green pepper, onion, tomatoes, mushrooms, tuna and a small bit of cheese. I made enough to have loads left over for the working week ahead, so I had some for my lunch today and there's still enough left for a few more days. It's blummin' good, if I do say so myself. Rather proud of it, I am.  :)

It's a chilli bean and sweetcorn bake thingy tonight.
Ridiculously easy to make, even easier to trough! :)
Recipe?
Okey-dokey...
Quantities are prolly quite flexible but to feed me and Mrs P :-

1 large onion (or one packet of chopped onion if you are lazy like me!)
1 clove of garlic (optional)
1 tsp of olive oil
1 tin mixed beans (in water)
1 tin sweetcorn (in water)
1 carton passata
1 tbsp clear honey
1 tsp oregano
2 tsps chilli powder
salt & pepper to taste
6 tbsps breadcrumbs (our Asda do some nice bags of fresh breadcrumbs in their fresh meat chillers )
40g grated cheese

I use a wok for this but a pan big enough to hold everything is all you need.
Chop and fry the onion in the oil until softened (include the chopped/pressed garlic if wanted), mix in the (drained) mixed beans, (drained) sweetcorn, passata, honey, oregano and chilli powder. Stir and bring to boil. Reduce heat and allow to heat through for a bit (there's not much to actually "cook" here...and it's going to a hot place in a bit!).
Season with salt & pepper if required
Heat the oven to 180 degrees (gas mark 4).
Mix the breadcrumbs and grated cheese together
Spoon/pour the mix into an oven-proof container (e.g. large pyrex casserole thingy).
Top with the breadcrumb/cheese mix.
Bung in the top of the over for 15-20 minutes.
If you wish, shove it under the grill to brown the topping a bit. Depending on the cheese you use, this might make it nicer or not, low fat cheese doesn't seem to like grilling much.

Serve and enjoy.

Chilli-arsoninsts can tweak the fire content at will. :)

Finally got round to making another pasta salad for tomorrow's lunch (could've done with doing it at the beginning of the week, but oh well). This time is similar to last time, but with a few changes. It features pasta, peas, one onion, one red pepper, one orange pepper, two very large chestnut mushrooms, two tomatoes, a tin of mixed beans in tomato sauce and perhaps too big a dash of mixed herbs. Lovely, it is. No tuna or cheese this time, I think it really doesn't need those with all that tomato in there.

Putting food in the fridge in our office is not recommended.  People put food in - and forget to eat it.  After a few days, it smells.  After a few weeks, it flows out onto the floor.

We've got a fridge in our office, but we only use it for drinks and fruit, and for keeping the sarnies I take to work with me chilled until lunch time. Mike and I share an office on the top floor, which was the previous CEO's flat - the office used to be the kitchen, the room next door (now a meeting room) his bedroom, the stationary store was his living room, and there's a very nice shower room/toilet.

Yesterday we went to The Waffle House, and Debbie had soup. Caitlin was annoyed because it was not made out of waffles. She had a cheese and ham savoury waffle, and Stephen had a garlic waffle. They both followed that with a chocolate sauce waffle. Caitlin had a mountain of whipped cream with hers, and Stephen had ice cream. Caitlin was "in paradise" after the savoury one and then "in second paradise" after the chocolate sauce one. I had a banoffee waffle, which was delicious.

So, I had some Indian food in Bangalore.

As predicted, it bore little relation to what we eat here. I knew that Chicken Tikka Masala was a Brummie invention, but I wasn't expecting to get blank stares when I mentioned things like Jalfrezi or Bhuna.

I think most of what we eat here as Indian food must be North Indian food, or, as my colleague suspected, maybe even Pakistani.

What I had as a traditional South Indian meal was a Thali, which is essentially a silver tray with 12 different tiny pots round the outside, filled with chutneys, pickles, something I would describe as vegetable and potato curries, and then some sweet curd and a little cake made entirely of ghee.

In the middle you get a bread of your choice (I went for Puri but others had Naan and Chapathi, which apparently aren't British inventions...) and some rice, over which everyone else poured some of their pots and then ate the whole lot by hand but I used a spoon and still got it all down me.

Very nice and all but not something I'd want to eat all the time.

Bangladeshi, mostly.

The only 'traditional' tandoori, for example is tandoori chicken, chicken tikka and sheek kebab, served with naan (they grow as much wheat as rice in the areas it comes from). Everything else is British.

I've only had a 'proper' thali at a place called Woodlands, in Marylebone Lane, just around the corner from where I work. It's South Indian vegetarian restaurant, and their food is pretty much as you describe, James. Quite fiery stuff. I was taken there by a friend who's family are from Madras, and it's the sort of thing they eat a lot of at home, albeit not served in the restaurant stylee.

Second day running I have a tub of raw food (baby corn, carrots, yellow pepper and cherry tomatoes)

This is the way forward - it's really tasty with just a drizzle (and the container DOES actually drizzle - it's not an affectation) of lemony olive oil.

Sort of related - I saw a breakfast menu in a café recently where they did a full English with a twist -,no sausage, but a grilled chicken breast fillet instead. Wrong, in a way, but I was tempted for a minute or two.

Two of us were allowed a day out from work today (for good behaviour - I doubt it) to go and look at some new machines. The company we were visiting were obviously putting on a show, so we had no problem at all in accepting the offer of Beef bourguignon with potato and assorted vegetables, followed by pudding. We know we're not going to be buying a machine from these people (yet), so we both decided to balance the meal by having two puddings each - cheesecake and a bowl of fruit & cream.
Unfortunately, not many companies are trying this hard to get business.
PS. The talk by a member of the Red Bull Racing back-room staff was quite interesting as well.

I made a chilli at the weekend. 1.5 kg mince, loads of onions, garlic, celery, mushrooms, homegrown chillies and peppers, 4 tins beans and 3 tins tomatoes, plus my secret blend of herbs and spices (oregano, cumin and a dash of cinnamon). I also added 2 star anise to the pan on Robert's recommendation. I could tell they were in there, but neither my younger son or my husband could. However, after eating it my younger son said "I guess I don't mind chilli con carne too much any more" which actually counts as high praise indeed as he has always been vociferously anti-chilli con carne and used to whinge most dreadfully whenever I cooked it.

With things like bolognese, chillis, etc, I tend to make a large cauldron full and then portion it up and freeze it. That amount did 4 x 4 servings. 3 of us had just under 3/4 of one tub last night, and 3 tubs have gone in the freezer. Bear in mind that I have 2 large teenage sons who eat unreasonable amounts at the moment, so that would probably feed about 20 normal people.

What's BCAAs?

Returning to the star anise in chilli consideration, I discovered a very good reason for not including them. Coming across a whole star anise in your mouth when you are eating the chilli is not very pleasant.

One onion. One red and one yellow pepper. Three mushrooms. Three tomatoes. A load of peas. A little bit of tomato purée. A dash of ground pepper, salt, basil and mixed herbs. Added pasta with a very small amount of the water it was cooked in for binding. Some grated cheese. Stirred it all together, consume. Lovely.

I must say, I've become quite good at this over the last year. That was one good thing 2012 did for me.  :)

My house smells all meaty. I have boiled down the lamb trimmings into the already meaty stock as well as boiling the hell out of some shallots that were otherwise on their last legs.

Tomorrow I will flash fry the lamb meat and add carrots, leeks and possibly more onions as well as some more seasoning (possibly a bit of fairly mild chilli pepper) ready for my turn on work's soup rota (eight of us take a week each in turn - this is my first).

I am taking this very seriously and aim to produce a hearty soup I would be happy to pay money for.

True... If you cost up his time in growing them, the price per pound would be truly scary! So far we've found that courgettes and tomatoes, followed by chillies, are the most satisfactory to grow. The soup turned out OK, anyway, despite the puny leeks.

Chilli con carne made with diced venison is a common dish at Forster Mansions (and well it should be 'cos it's jolly scrummy). I've only recently started using packets of frozen diced onions instead of chopping my own. I know it's more expensive and is absolutely cheating but my eyes are so thankful and let me know by not hurting at all. No more cheating than using the packet mix for the spices I suppose.

The trouble is that they have the menu/carte online and reading through it, I suddenly had an overwhealing desire to have a steak.  ::)

Since my brother's leaving for Northern Ireland tomorrow, we went for a pub meal in a pub. I had a chicken melt with side salad and chips. The two great chunks of chicken breast were covered in a fiery sauce and topped with melted cheese. It wasn't half spicy, but it was delicious.

A shame they didn't have what I had there last time on the menu, which was a New Orleans inspired gammon steak melt with a spicy red onion sauce. That was like eating smoke and lava, it was amazing...

I went to a family run Italian at lunchtime - it's run by a lovely lady who does front of house and her husband in the kitchen. I think they're actually Maltese.

The food would probably best be described as 'Rustic' and 'home-made' rather than fancy - it's funny how these days we expect that if we spend £12 on a dish it should look like something off Masterchef. I had chicken breast stuffed with mozarella, parma ham and basil leaves, and it was very tasty indeed.

The reason I am telling you about this is to explain why I still smelll like garlic the next time you see me, since I swear that the chef used an entire bulb of crushed garlic in my sauce. I had to sieve it out with my fork and put it to one side in the end... :D

Those places are sadly lacking these days, it seems. But they are often the places I'd prefer to go rather than some gastro pub that has all its food pre-packaged and prepared. The joint I went to with Simon and Robert in December was a bit like that and there was a nice atmosphere to the place. Proper.

Ooh, yum! We're having roast lamb tomorrow, it'll be my first time making anything other than roast chicken or beef.

Tonight I made fillet steak and sautéed potatoes with mini broccoli spears for Karin's pre-birthday dinner.

Get me.

Lamb is good. I usually do mine in a covered roasting tin and poke holes in it before cooking, inserting 1/3 of a clove of garlic in each hole, then season it with salt and pepper, add some peeled (and halved/quartered if they are big/huge) onions (red ones are good but regular ones are just fine) and a few 3" sprigs of rosemary, then 1/4 pint hot water in the bottom of the roasting tin and into the oven for a couple of hours.

Won't the hot water leak out of the roasting tin after you have poked holes in it...

Same idea for lamb from our place only we use rosemary instead of garlic....

Anyway, ignoring that...

On 28 February I have been invited to a dinner at the Cinnamon Club, The Old Westminster Library, 30-32 Great Smith Street, London.  Apparently, this prestigious venue, which has been featured on BBC's Masterchef, Saturday Kitchen Live and UKTV's Market Kitchen, offers a modern Indian dining experience that is guaranteed to be a little bit different, as well as delicious!

Anyone been there and can give me a proper opinion ?


Title: Re: It's Time For Food
Post by: AmazingWilf on February 13, 2013, 05:16:36 PM
Yes, it's superb. It's totally unlike any other 'Indian' food you'll encounter. It was a couple of years ago that I went there, and I had a variation on tandoori lamb - it was delicious.

We tried Purple Majesty potatoes this evening. To say that they are purple is a bit of an understatement. They made a very interesting (and intensely purple) mashed potato, which livened up our sausages considerably. They tasted just like regular potatoes, but apparently have health benefits because of the high levels of antioxidants they contain (just like blueberries and other purple superfoods).

Meanwhile, I'm eating a Nakd bar and killing any cocoa cravings I might've had. On a similar note, of the three edibles I gave up for February (bread, cheese, chocolate), I'm not really missing any. I do have the odd longing for bread, but only really when I have soup.

I haven't made pancakes on Shrove Tuesday for at least six years. In fact, I haven't made pancakes on any day for at least six years. Shrove Tuesday was originally the day you used up all the remaining crap you had in the house so you would be ready for Lent... I would've done that, but I really wasn't in the mood to down many bottles of booze in one evening. I haven't been in that sort of mood for a long, long time now.

I've just done a bake. It is a mixture of cornflakes, coconut, cocoa powder, margerine, etc. etc. Long story short, it was a success in that the house is still standing, nothing is on fire and the things are actually edible. They may have been in the oven a minute too long, but they don't taste like brick. The addition of melted chocolate on top didn't go so well as I didn't have enough, so there's just an embarrassing pool in the middle of the things. But hey. Next time will be better.
