Comment on pistachio cake by Ruth https://smittenkitchen.com/2017/04/pistachio-cake/#comment-2020786 I made this and topped it with brown butter icing and candied pistachios and it was extremely perfect. The brown butter went extremely well with the nuts.

Comment on skillet ravioli with spinach by Katie K https://smittenkitchen.com/2019/10/skillet-ravioli-with-spinach/#comment-2020768 I have made this numerous times, always with great success. Last night not as much and I wanted to share, in case it would be helpful for others. First, I had cheese tortellini, which needed to get out of the freezer. I thought my 8 ounces of spinach would go farther, but I need to remember to double the amount. It was farm-fresh and didn’t have as much body as store-bought baby spinach. My crème fraiche had gone bad so I subbed sour cream. My take away: It really needs the crème fraiche or mascarpone, even full-fat sour cream isn’t melty enough. I think tortellini is a fine substitute for the raviolis. I’ll certainly will do it again, with more spinach and crème fraiche, which I make using your recipe.

‘Agricultural disaster’: £1.7bn worth of French wine production lost after cold snaps https://www.theguardian.com/food/2021/apr/15/agricultural-disaster-two-billion-worth-of-french-wine-production-lost-after-cold-snaps Unseasonal bitter frost and ice after warm weather in France has risked decimated grape harvests

At least a third of French wine production worth almost €2bn (£1.7bn) in sales will be lost this year after rare freezing temperatures devastated many vines and fruit crops across France, sparking concerns over the climate crisis.

“This is probably the greatest agricultural catastrophe of the beginning of the 21st century,” the French agriculture minister Julien Denormandie said this week as the government declared an “agricultural disaster” and began preparing emergency financial measures.

Comment on rosanne cash’s all-american potato salad by Julie Noel https://smittenkitchen.com/2007/07/rosanne-cash-all-american-potato-salad/#comment-2020719 I learned to make potatoe salad from my grandmother and am now the official potatoe salad maker for every summer gathering with my 6 sisters and all our kids, and now grandkids. Recently my son asked for the recipe, so I’ll be turning the mantle over to him soon. The recipe is very similar, but substituting fresh lemon juice for the vinegar and cucumber for the dill pickles. It ends up with a crisper, lighter flavor than the vinegar version.

Intentional Cold Retard: when do you begin the cooling? http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/67973/intentional-cold-retard-when-do-you-begin-cooling

Hi,

 We have been baking utility bread loaves for home use and working with our dough with the goal of making a nice useful loaf of bread.

 With each batch I make, I like to take a few balls of dough and set them aside in the refrigerator for use later in the week.

 These balls are separated from the main batch of dough after a bulk ferment, a subsequent folding, and a second rise. I cut the balls away when I am forming and preparing to proof the individual loaves.

 I place the balls in sealed containers and store them in our household refrigerator.

 I am writing to ask a question about "cold retard" because these dough balls are developing a very slight sour aroma and taste, which is not necessarily bad but not especially desirable as I am not attempting to work with sour dough.

 My basic active dry yeast bread recipe includes an overnight 100% hydration preferment that is made with 400 grams of a total of 3000 grams of flour (13.33%?), which may be the source of the sour character, but the sensation only occurs with the dough that is stored for an extended time in cold storage. The fresh dough as is used for the primary goal of bread making yields a rich malty aroma.

I am unfamiliar with intentional "cold retard" processes, and have been very casual about considering the extra dough balls I set aside for cold storage.

This leads me to my question; if you are striving to do a cold retard process, do you get the dough into the cold storage at a much earlier juncture than I have described?

Thank you!

Would You use self made Self Raising Flour? http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/67972/would-you-use-self-made-self-raising-flour

I am a huge fun of baking and all that it entails. Stretching from the cooking, to the different cutlery and the food. With the pandemic here with us, there is a new crop of users who use plain flour to bake cakes and cookies among others. I find this to be different from what I am used to. They use plain flour but just add baking powder instead of self-raising baking flour. I don't know what you think of this? Would you try it?

Whole-wheat flour for sourdough starter http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/67970/wholewheat-flour-sourdough-starter

New to the site, this is great! I followed a recipe that called for whole wheat flour for the initial starter. I also did one with unbleached all purpose flour. I’m just noticing that the whole wheat starter doesn’t seem to be producing bubbles the same way that the all purpose flour did. I don’t know how old my whole wheat flour is cannot be a problem?

New Scientist - Online News w. subscription recipe broken https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=338808&goto=newpost Hi Team and Hi @kovidgoyal ,
I love calibre and the recipe function - used it for Nature.com , and it works perfectly.
(I use CALIBRE 5.14 ).
i just tried with my New Scientist Account, but it just get headlines, with no or few text lines, and extra large sized social media icons instead.
(For the moment, i only manage to fully scrap NS pages to epub by using the firefox add on "DOTEPUB" , but it's a slow process).
Would appreciate if you could give a look.
I may add that i am in forced holidays for the coming days, i am fully available to help for testing or any low level tasks (having low coding skills).
Kind Regards,

What got me through lockdown? Sharing pork belly with the next-door neighbours | Jay Rayner https://www.theguardian.com/food/2021/apr/15/jay-rayner-lockdown-sharing-pork-belly-neighbours Swapping missing ingredients and spare custard tarts over the garden wall made difficult times a little easier to live with

True neighbourliness is a single onion sitting on a garden wall. It’s a nub end of ginger or a roll of greaseproof paper. Over the past year, all of these things and more besides have loitered on the old brick wall that separates our garden from that of our lovely neighbours, Marc and Elvira. The pandemic has written many narratives around food: there have been community projects to make meals for those in need, and schemes to keep frontline healthcare workers fed during long shifts. But alongside the big arching themes are the more intimate stories of people simply finding ways to bring moments of joy into the flatline of lockdown. When I eventually look back at it all I know it will be the story of our garden wall, and the part it played in how we ate, that will make me smile the most.

Before Covid-19 we would, of course, knock occasionally on each other’s doors and ask to borrow a missing ingredient. We discovered shortly after they moved in a few years ago that our new neighbours were as up for a cooking project as we were. Marc once showed me a picture of a suckling pig on his phone, like he’d been offered a hot motor, and asked me if I fancied going halves. He’s that sort of man. (His name suggests he might be French, doesn’t it? He isn’t. He’s from Torquay.) Marc and Elvira could always be relied upon to have what we did not and vice vera. Plus, we were all impeccable neighbours. We replaced whatever we had borrowed. Have a couple of onions back. Here’s your lemon.

Comment on strawberry-rhubarb crumble by Mia https://smittenkitchen.com/2007/05/strawberry-rhubarb-crumble/#comment-2020529 Spectacular! Just the recipe I was looking for–so easy to throw together and makes a perfect, uncluttered crumble. I made it with less-than-stellar rhubarb and reduced the sugar a bit both in the topping and the filling (4 tbsp in the topping and 50g in the filling), but I love tart desserts so ymmv.

I ate some for breakfast with a dollop of plain yogurt and am having a real hard time not dipping in for seconds. I will definitely make again before rhubarb season is over and use this as a template for other crumbles. Highly recommended!

Cloud kitchen startup JustKitchen to go public on the TSX Venture Exchange http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Techcrunch/~3/9OPSy57KHo0/ JustKitchen, a cloud kitchen startup, will start trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) Venture Exchange on Thursday morning. It is doing a direct listing of its common shares, having already raised $8 million at a $30 million valuation.

The company says this makes it one of the first—if not the first—cloud kitchen company to go public in North America. While JustKitchen launched operations last year in Taiwan, it is incorporated in Canada, with plans to expand into Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and the United States. TSX Venture is a board on the Toronto Stock Exchange for emerging companies, including startups, that can move to the main board once they reach certain thresholds depending on industry.

JustKitchen is using cloud kitchens to create the next generation of restaurant franchising

“It’s a really convenient way to get into the market and with the ghost kitchen industry in particular, it’s early stage and there’s a lot of runway,” co-founder and chief executive officer Jason Chen told TechCrunch. “We felt there really was a need to get going as quickly as we could and really get out into the market.”

Participants in JustKitchen’s IPO rounds included returning investor SparkLabs Taipei (JustKitchen took part in its accelerator program last year), investment institutions and retail clients from Toronto. More than half of JustKitchen’s issued and outstanding shares are owned by its executives, board directors and employees, Chen said.

One of the reasons JustKitchen decided to list on TSX Venture Exchange is Chen’s close ties to the Canadian capital markets, where he worked as an investment banker before moving to Taiwan to launch the startup. A couple of JustKitchen’s board members are also active in the Canadian capital markets, including Darren Devine, a member of TSX Venture Exchange’s Local Advisory Committee.

These factors made listing on the board a natural choice for JustKitchen, Chen told TechCrunch. Other reasons included ability to automatically graduate to the main TSX board once companies pass certain thresholds, including market cap and net profitability, and the ease of doing dual listings in other countries. Just Kitchen is also preparing to list its common shares on the OTCQB exchange in the U.S. and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Germany.
