SE++ wouldn't be the same without our food thread to discuss our recipes, read @stale's mouthwatering recipes (and try them) and discuss places to eat in our cities and when visiting other locations!

Maybe you'd like to discuss food shows, too? Like the Onion-created-Top-Chef-parody-that-doesn't-seem-that-far-off:

    I'm gonna post some hot bread pictures in here.

    This weekend it's rye bread and sandwich bread!

    Also I have a ton of instant yeast to use now.

    Mori has pushed me to improve my bread making.

    Not liking baking is no excuse not to be a better baker.


    Last night made a sugar-butter crust cinnamon bread. Came out decent. I'll be making some king cakes this weekend.

    I really enjoy baking. My biggedt gripe is the amount of time it takes for a good loaf - the Rustic Italian Bread I've made the past couple weekends has to rise and be folded three times and then a final rise before being put in the oven. It's worth it, though - the bread is goddamned delicious.

    Right now I'm just using a pizza stone to bake the bread on, which is nice but at the same time is a bit small, especially for that italian bread. Seriously considering getting a bigass pizza stone that would take up the entirety of my parents' oven.

    I can understand that. You strike me as a dude who likes a bit more wiggle room in his cooking, which baking doesn't allow. I like that too, but the wiggle room for me in baking bread is what you put into it. Sure, you can make a 5:3 ratio white bread, but you can just as easily throw some onions in there or what have you.

    Near the dawn of time, night cloaked most of the earth and men cowered, afraid, in their caves. They fed on the carcasses left by the more powerful species, supplemented by plants they hoped would not poison them. These humble cave dwellers were our ancestors and they dreamed of great things. One day a luminous being descended from the. They could not understand it's advanced thoughts however, so the creature flew back to the heavens from whence it had come. As it climbed higher and higher, it swore a vow to come back. To find this planet again and impart the vast knowledge of the galaxies. The eseential truth it had learned. Our ancestors survived.

    Earth 1980 A.D, Southern California : Two brothers stare up at the night sky. Dreaming of the future and wishing for more. A star grows brighter and brighter still. Falling ever faster to the earth. The brothers both have the sense of a wave building. A powerful force barely contained. They stand on the brink of history, of greatness. The star plummets downward, crashing into the nearby desert. The brothers are drawn to it. Unable to leave it even if they had wanted to. They find a great crater, at it's center a glowing figure. Humanoid, but not human. They clamber and slide down the slope, yelling and laughing at the sheer and utter joy and terror of it all. Two children of Earth, brought here to this place on this night. They reach the bottom tired and smeared with dirt, shoes filled with sand reminding them of the beach trips they had taken as children. The figure shakes violently. Body contorting. Wracked by pain, by a lifetime of suffering. It raises one withered arm. Hand outstretched and beckoning them closer. The brothers approach and lean in close. They are bathed by the creatures light, fading even now as it whispers to them secrets. It falls back with a gasp, the light almost extinguished. With one last effort it gives voice to the final knowledge of it's kind. The treasure that it bore across the stars. The key to happiness, health, success. The key to life itself. The brothers departed that place, never to return. They would soon find their fortune. Their future. Their greater things. For deep in their heart they had those two words that had been spoken too them that fateful night.

    I've been meaning to make some bread recipes myself, but right now they're just in my head and I need to make and taste-test them first to ensure they're decent.

    flour, eggs, salt.

    there isn't nearly as much chemistry to worry about with pasta.

    Honestly bread is also fairly open, as far as baking goes.

    Flour, water, salt, and yeast. You need to get the basic structure yes, but it's fairly easy to do so off the cuff.

    cake? pastry? no way. too much chemistry to balance and still be free.

    Yeah, stuff like choux paste is really finicky.

    But you do get eclairs from it so I am okay with that.

    I like baking a lot. A little less freedom, but it's also fun to try different kinds of baked goods.

    Also: SCONES. Goddamn do I love me some scones. And you can make lots of kinds, too...though the one time I tried to make cheddar + chive scones, they just came out super dense and not even all that flavorful, which really surprised me, considering the amount of flavorful things I threw in there. I can make a mean cranberry/orange, lemon poppy, or cranberry/ginger scone though. Mmmmmm

    Bread.jpg

    This is the first bread I made from scratch. As you can clearly see, it's a bit burnt at the top, because at that point I didn't know how far out of whack my parents' oven was. Still, it was delicious and had a fantastic crust! I baked it a dutch oven, with the top on for about a half-hour and then off for the remaining 20-30 minutes.

    I made some spaghetti sauce tonight, using my immersion blender that I got for christmas for the first time.

    I am going to try to make a box of chocolates this weekend to give to Amy on valentine's day. With her dietary restrictions, there aren't any I can just buy.

    Here's a loaf of that Rustic Italian Bread I was talking about. As you can see I forgot to slice the top before baking, so it probably didn't rise up as much during the baking process as it could have. However, it's also fucking huge, and tasted pretty nice! This bread was made with a sponge beforehand.

    A lot of your recipes are fat and carb heavy, which is fine for people that don't mind that but with the 'betus I tend to not bother.

    I've had vegetarian chili before, it's pretty decent. I don't like it as much as real meaty chili, of course, but it works well enough.
