Post DC's Awesome Tour of Cooking 2009 • Posted: Tue May 19, 2009 6:55 pm
Since there is a HIGH possibility I will be unable to get a job this summer or something, I'll be spending a lot of my time honing my skills in certain areas. One of those areas is cooking, which I have neglected over the last few years in an effort to learn about annealing temperatures and slip planes or whatever it is we do in Materials Engineering. Anyway to make a long story short, this thread will showcase all the food I will or at least attempt to cook over the summer. If possible I will also provide the recipe so that you may one day impress your family and/or future sweetheart with your incredible skill in the culinary arts.

Feel free to post comments in this thread. I'm also lifting the double post rule for myself since I'll probably post several times in a row. Also I'm the administrator so I can be a rebel like that.

Shall we?

May 18th, 2009 - Apple Pie from Scratch

I didn't take any photos of the process, so you can imagine it. Anyway here is the final outcome:

Surprisingly it turned out very well considering I hadn't made pie from scratch since grade 8 home economics.

May 19th, 2009 - Chinese Steamed Buns (Pronounced 'Bow' as in Starboard Bow)

My grandmother is famous within my family for these buns, yet no one else has bothered to learn how to make them. So I went over today to see how its done. 6 hours (I'm not kidding) later volia! Since I was trying to document the process there are some in the making shots to go with this one.


The final outcome after 6 hours.

Image

Image



Cooking the filling. This particular filling was Chinese BBQ pork.

Image



A close up of the wrapping process.

Image



Steamed in wooden baskets over boiling water for 20 minutes.

Image


Recipe: I still have to translate all of my grandmothers measurements to standard measurements so maybe I'll post this one. Maybe. This is really a two day thing, preparing the filling one day and the dough/cooking the other day.

Gasp! Those are not your hands! He's lying to us guys! It's a rotten deception! He didn't even make any of these things! I feel the need for another exclamatory sentence because I don't think I have enough of them already in this post!

If you have a Wok or Chef's Pan, I HIGHLY recommend doing a stir-fry. They're easy, taste AWESOME, and you'll be impressed. Just an idea...

Oh I already do stir-fry all the time. I'm trying things I don't normally do. :P

And no we don't have a wok at my house, I just do stir fry in a big pot.

May 28th, 2009 - Chocolate Strawberries

The favorite of romantics around the world. Take a strawberry. Dip in melted chocolate. Cool in fridge. Repeat.

Image

Image

Look I don't know what you want from me. They can't all be complicated things. :P

Recipe: Melt some chocolate. Dip a washed strawberry in it. Set on parchment paper and cool.


Oh and here's shot for those who are wondering how far my computer is to the kitchen (As I go back and forth frequently) Pardon the mess.

Couldn't you have done something more suited to my taste? Like...chocolate dipped in chocolate? Ooh, or chicken dipped in chocolate! I have always wanted to try that.

June 13th, 2009 - Spaghetti and Garlic Baguette

I took a lot of pictures for this one so I thought I'd detail how to make it in addition to showing you pictures.


Spaghetti Sauce: http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1615,15 ... 98,00.html

Add minced garlic and oil to a pan set to high heat

Image


Add ground beef and cook until no more pink remains. Soak up extra oil/fat with paper towel on the end of a spoon.

Image


Throw everything else in there. Let it simmer on medium-low for a long time.

Image



Spaghetti: Um purchase from a store? I'm not making my own spaghetti. :P

Place spaghetti in pot of water. Heat water. Cook for 10-12 minutes until desired tenderness.

Image



Garlic Baguette: I just winged this one.

Take about 5-6 cloves of garlic (Alter depending on how garlicy you want your bread. We like ours with a lot of flavor.) Chop finely and pound it to death with a mortar and pestle. Add butter and mix.

Image


Obtain a baguette. It is preferable to obtain a chopping board as well.

Image


Cut baguette into slices and spread garlic butter liberally. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese if you have some and oregano. Place on baking tray.

Image


Bake until it's toasted the way you like it.

Image


Assemble everything together and eat. I also made salad too but I didn't take any pictures.

Image
