Not Just Any Lasagna, A Dish Made With Love
Things that are home made or made from scratch often just taste better. Why do you think that is? Could it be that the reason is love? Fresh pasta is made with just a few ingredients flour, eggs, salt, and a splash of water. Using dry pasta just doesn’t replicate the quality you get with fresh dough. For this lasagna I opted to add fresh mozzarella and a nice meatball.
There is no replication for the love and passion a chef puts into their food. Love and passion can not be substituted. That is why it is important to cook what inspires you.
Chorizo and Mexican Elote Pizza
Sarted with the yogurt dough http://atomic-temporary-159264963.wpcomstaging.com/2020/08/06/hand-crafted-pizza-with-yogurt-dough/ that we highlighted in a previous post.
Smoked the corn using some nice hickory wood. The flavor of the corn was the right mix of sweet and smokey.
After the pizza emerged from the oven the smell was incredible. I removed it from the cast iron I baked it in and onto a pizza pan. Sliced up and ready to serve it was on its way to chow town. This pizza had a wealth of flavors that hit different notes. Sweet,Spicy,Smokey,Tangy and ultimately a tasty pie.
What are your 6?
Whats your 6? #projectmysterydish
#projectmysterydish is an idea I had to bring some fun into the ground hog days we are currently living in. The concept is simple and a take on some cooking shows we have seen in the past. Id like it to be a precursor for a cause that benefits a charity but I would like to get traction before we take it there.
The concept is a 6 ingredient challenge ( not including fillers, seasoning, and garnish which are allowed). To kick it off and provide inspiration. I did a pre-contest example. My 6 ingredients were ; Halibut, Acorn Squash, Figs, Blackberrys, Golden Beets, and Dandelion Greens.
To finish I garnished it with roasted fennel, radish, and limes. I was pretty happy with the dish although I woild swap out the dandelion greens as they were a bit to bitter for this dish.
