Challah

Well, this one was fun. Challah and fried fish was a regular friday night meal for us as kids. Mum used to go shopping at the Preston market on friday and buy butter-fish and challah, and would fry the fish in a pan with a coating of flour. Kate had never eaten challah, and I […]

Salami and buffalo mozzarella pizza

1130629.jpg

I’ve been using another pizza dough recipe lately, one from Lucky Peach. It’s a bit of effort to make without a mixer with a dough hook (takes a lot of beating with a wooden spoon and a lot of messing kneading). It freezes really well though, so I have been making batches and freezing balls […]

Flatbread

No knead bread

Steamed pork buns

_1040098

There was a lot of pork left over from last night, so I decided to try making home made pork buns. I used the Momofuku pork belly buns recipe for the dough. For the filling I just shredded the left over pork and reduced the sauce so that it was dark and sticky. Although it was pretty […]
