Good evening DeadSplinterati,
This is somewhat of an impromptu post so you get a regurgitated topic. Much like the kitchen at a house party, food is a popular topic that draws us all together. To spice up my life, I’ve been trying one new recipe a week for the past month. Basically, I’m Julie & Julia-ing FYCE at an escargot à l’ail’s pace. So far my biggest takeaways are that Herbes de Provence is fucking amazing and that I’m never frying anything again. Slow clap for @matthewcrawley for pique-ing my curiosity when he mentioned that he likes to eat Herbes de Provence with a spoon. Now I put that shit on everything (except Asian cuisine).
What have you been cooking? Seasonal favorites? Have you tried a FYCE or other new recipes recently? Was it a success or flop? I made a cream of celery this morning and used celeriac for the first time. The dish was only so-so. Have you ever purposely cooked with new (to you) ingredients? As always, feel free to bring up another topic. That’s what NOT is all about.
