I don't bother trying to substitute the meat when making mapo tofu at home and just use the Fuchsia Dunlop recipe.

I've only just discovered black pepper tofu using this recipe. It's amazing. I managed to deep dry the tofu in the wok without setting the kitchen on fire too. And now I use the sauce for any kind of stir fry.

in the local spice bazaar yesterday - always an education. spotted a jar of coconut sport balls (a.k.a. gelatinous mutant coconut balls a.k.a. macapuno). did a bit of research - sorry i didn't buy them now. will next time.

any of you travellers to asia have any experience of mutant coconut?

arancini all'amatriciana.

decorum dictated i stop after 5 but i could have eaten more. usually use ragu with saffron carnaroli, so the amatriciana with paprika & cayenne carnaroli made a nice change.





I had that in (ina restaurant) recently and it was nice.

I've bolded the words that i don't know what they mean or how to pronounce.

arran-cheeny are rice balls. carna-rolly is risotto rice. a-MAT-rich-A-na is a pasta sauce of tomato, bacon and chilli. each one is about the size of a snooker ball.

Hey food fucks, I need help.

I have frozen a pack of fresh mince. Can I defrost that mince, cook up a big chili, then freeze that chili into portions for microwaving?
