‘Farm to table’ basil pesto.

My backyard “farm” is about 70sq. ft., and my summer crops are usually tomatoes and basil. This year I spread wildflower seeds instead and dropped in a handful of basil plants to fend for themselves. I am usually very attentive about growing the basil: pinching flower buds, fertilizing, watering, weed picking, etc., but this year the basil was left to grow wild among the wildflowers.

Today was the last harvest. I cut the stalks, picked off the leaves, washed them, soaked them in ice water, then spinned them dry. Our favorite way to make pesto is to go heavy on the basil and combine it with toasted pine nuts, parmesan and a little romano, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. We routinely let the food processor do the work of getting everybody to hold hands, but we tried a new recipe this time, which calls for a manual chop and mince of the ingredients rather than the food processor smash up. https://www.101cookbooks.com/pesto-reci ... ovjXUJTnCU

We served the pesto over pici, a thick Tuscan noodle. The recipe called for no salt or pepper, so our first tastes were “as is”. Different and tasty, but we added some salt, pepper, and grated parmesan. By the end of our meal we both agreed that we preferred this new version to our “usual”. Seemed rustic and sophisticated at the same time; less processed with flavors and textures closer to the source ingredients. Recommend giving it a try. We had a lemony-salty Roulerie Anjou Chenin blanc with it ($18 at Total Wine). This was a good match but on a less warm day I would try a Chianti.

Bon appétit !

Dang, that paella looks awesome! I just recently received my Veleta order with some tuna and have been trying to think of some recipes that are "Veleta worthy". Any paella recipe secrets you can share? TIA

I’m not sure I have much to offer. This was truly just what was in the pantry. Not even the right type of rice. I added some Aleppo pepper on top after the tuna, and some lemon slices (also leftover!). Great weekday dinner, though.

I’ve been reheating the leftovers by chopping up some skinny asparagus, sautéing it in olive oil, and throwing the paella into the pan until hot with some more Aleppo and black pepper.

BTW my rice was basmati which makes it a bit more like Spanish biryani. You do what you can when you’re on a Webex and trying to make dinner.

Apple pie, with sous vide Granny Smith apples.

If you look closely, I tried to emboss the crust before putting on the yolk wash, which totally didn't work. Will have to try that again...

Dolphinfish/Mahi Mahi "fajitas." Marinated for about 30 minutes in Lime Zest, Lime juice, Soy, Chinese Rice wine and Olive oil. Spiced primarily with Chili powder. These were much better than i anticipated.

No judging. I don’t have the desire to cook for myself every night. Often the girl has other plans, so I’m reduced to alternative cuisine...of sorts.

I sautéed some chicken breasts, mushrooms and veges and added it to this...

I'm using my sourdough discards for waffles and they are coming out great. Didn't tell my wife beforehand, served blind. She said these are the best waffles i have ever made, what did i do differently.

New item this year. Salted bacala in a yellow tomato and caper sauce. It's a twist on something I had seen with red tomatoes.

Merry Christmas to you all. Enjoy your families.

I pulled off steak au-poivre with Flannery filets. Nearly singed my eyebrows but it was phenomenal. Family dug in before I could take photos which was one of the best compliments. Not difficult but dangerous! I did the flaming outside with an extinguisher close at hand.

Chicken Bog. Have been on a Southern cooking kick lately, after reading Sean Brock’s Heritage and South over the break. I spatchcocked and roasted a chicken, chopped the white meat up and added to some homemade chicken stock that had been simmering for a couple of hours with two ham hocks. I shredded the hocks, added some Geechie Boy Mills Carolina Gold Rice and let simmer for 20-30 mins. Finished with black pepper and thyme.

Thanks, Kenny.
Have multiple breads working today.
72 hour 80/10/10 Boules all natural starter
50/50 white and white wheat, with 4 seeds and 6 grains plus roasted pecans and dried cranberries. This is a sourdough discard loaf with commercial yeast. I'm making these two loaves for sandwich style breads. They have been outstanding.
50/50 same as above without cranberries. Sourdough discard with reduced commercial yeast to push the ferment longer.

Tomorrow i will be working on artisan hamburger buns for an experiment with a local restaurant.

Deboned chicken thigh sous vide 167°F x 45 min, then seared without oil for 2-3 min to crisp skin. Served over a raw apple-fennel-walnut salad and a quick carrot puree.

Not at Milton’s level of bread making, by a mile... but made some Jimmy Red Cornbread in a skillet, using some rendered bacon fat from a round of candied Benton’s bacon I made. Great stuff, but my family can’t get past the fact that is savory instead of cake.

Quick breads are the gateway drug.
And sweet cornbread is an abomination. The cornbread looks really good.

And here is the hamburger bun experiment.
Partial sourdough, everything bagel topped and black and white sesame top. These were tender, but didn't disintegrate under the toppings.

Made a few Sichuan dishes tonight including one of the better Mapo Tofu I've ever pulled off at home.

@Dennis - that’s awesome. Read the post and thought - “I just saw that bottle and drooled on Instagram!” Great to connect the name with the profile!

Dennis, if you ever need a taste tester to make sure you are doing it right, you have my number.

We should do a Sichuan cooking-dinner in the near future. Good idea. It has been a while!

Little bit of a cross post, the individual reubens were outstanding.

Last night I marinated some Flannery Hanger Steak in a mixture of Gokujang Fermented Chili Paste, Tamari, Ponzu, Lime Juice, Ginger and EVOO. Then I stir fried some onions, garlic, chopped shiitake mushrooms and celery. I grilled the Hangers, added the marinade to the stir fry with some corn starch and added the sliced Hangers to coat. Served over Jasmine Rice.

Tonight I braised Short Ribs in mirepoix, 2C chicken broth, a bottle of Ruby Port, a bottle of Sangiovese, 1/2 C Red Wine Vinegar and honey.

I reduced the braising liquid and made a sauce. Served over a bed of Swiss Chard, Spinach and Crimini Mushrooms topped with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Shirt Ribs.
