penalolza THE pot de crème au chocolat; the baked-in-a-water-bath, silkier-than-babies'-cheeks type of chocolate custard. So chocolate. À Bistrot B. 1mon

penalolza Crème, crème, crème, chocolat, more crème, apples, crème... I haven't enjoyed desserts this much in a while. Thank you Bistrot B for finally existing in Beijing, and making the richest pot de crème au chocolat, Oolong tea crème brûlée and a tarte tatin with tender apples so swollen with caramel reduction their girth was matched only by our waistlines. 1mon

penalolza Who loves baby carrots? Moroccanish quinoa salad with grilled chicken, fresh apricot, roasted baby carrots and cilantro tossed in a hot Moroccan-spiced olive oil and good ol' lemon juice. I love how aromatic it is while staying super light. Spiced oil: combine in a metal bowl 1/2 tsp each of coriander powder and ginger powder. Add 1/4 tsp each of coarse black pepper, cumin and cinnamon. Pour 4 Tbsp of sizzling hot olive oil (heat in pan) into the spices. Hop on magic carpet to Marrakesh. 2mon
  •   lolaboatwright If only we had food like this in Marrakech. I'm pretty sure I'm one of a dozen households with quinoa in the pantry. 2mon
  •   lolaboatwright I might actually try this... 谢谢 @penalolza 2mon
  •   penalolza @lolaboatwright are you still there? And yes the spice oil is so easy to add to anything, just remember +salt. You'll have leftovers (don't feel obligated to tip the whole 4 Tbsp into one rather greasy salad/thing). 2mon
  •   lolaboatwright Yes, here until August. I'll let you know how it goes with the recipe! @penalolza 2mon

penalolza Farm to Neighbors farmers' market; full of good food and special people, like the dynamic Lin Lin of Spoonful of Sugar, whose freshly baked chicken pies warmed our tummies on a nice, balmy winter's day. Also I am clutching two vases of rice wine. 2mon

penalolza Happy Boxing Day! I made these beetroot-pistachio muffins for Christmas, had been too busy to post until now, and just riding the last of Christmas' fading trail of stardust to put a festive baked good out there... Don't quit the Xmas spirit! 2mon

penalolza Finally had time to clear up and re-organize the walk-in. This is what happened to four gnarly looking bananas: banana cake with Dominique Ansel's super simple recipe for a fluffy loaf. Blend 4 overripe bananas, 3 eggs and 200g melted butter into a purée. Combine with 2 cups flour, 1.5 cups sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt. Bake at 176*C for ~35 min. The whole room will smell like bananas 3mon

penalolza Experimenting with dips & toast spreads in the lab today, starting with an easy one: Tuscan inspired spread of white bean, garlic, fresh rosemary and olive oil. De-shell cooked white beans (don't be lazy), process with the rest of the ingredients and a bit of lemon juice. Dunk everything and anything in it. 3mon

penalolza Brrr it's cold outside... For breakfast I'm in a Scandinavian kind of mood (rye toast with salmon cream cheese, cucumber, radish and dill) ️ 天气这么冷,早餐上给我个北欧的感觉 (黑麦吐司,三文鱼奶油芝士,黄瓜,水萝卜,莳萝) 3mon
