The food cooking thread...

Post by Savory » Wed Jun 22, 2011 5:17 pm

food by name, probably not by nature 8-)

everyone loves talking about food, and we need to occupy this footy free summer with something, so please add any ideas, recipes and thoughts to this thread 8-) i'd be interested to know :hyper:

Not extravagant but tasty nonetheless and vegetarian should you or know someone who is :P

What was wrong with the old thread?

Anyhow... I've been making Pizza on a weekly basis for a while now... the tomato sauce in this recipe is awesome - as is the dough come to think of it.

Not even off the page - no matter... this one doesn't say 'nosh' in it.

Just about to eat burgers... burgers made from Tesco branded chemicals.

I know a few veggie dishes, made Gnocchi with Tuscan Pepper sauce last night that wasn't too bad. Gnocchi is a bit fiddly to make but bought gnocchi is usually as good. I'll pm you if you want the recipe

You need:
2 garlic cloves,
4 tbspoons of olive oil,
4 of those long sweet peppers, I think theyre called Romano peppers, depends which supermarket you go to
1 tin of chopped tomatoes,
2 chillis, red preferably
and a bit of basil to whack in at the end.

fry up the garlic til its golden, then chuck in the chillis and the peppers and cook for about 20 minutes til theyre really soft and the oil leeches out the red colour from the peppers. Then stir in the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Half cover the pan and leave for another 20 minutes til its reduced. Then season and throw in the basil and serve with whatever pasta (or gnocchi) floats your boat. Quite sweet not too spicy, piquant I believe the word is 8-)

Just thought I'd necro this as I've just finished getting a sourdough starter going, not actually baked anything with it yet mind so it may be horrible! Nearly had a mishap last night with it escaping from its jar, but back under control. I'm guessing I should name it or something.

Anyone else had any experience with them?

Yup - took a bit of a friends home and promptly dropped the container which smashed on the street... all things considered it did not go well. Been meaning to try it but I don't really have that much time for it at the moment... happy with packet yeast breads for now.

Yeah it's a bit of a faff to bake from it; not time consuming per se, but you have to be around at the right times.

Hopefully get chance to bake something this weekend, so long as I can find a proving basket.
