Chicken aspic over rice. My version of Soma`s entrance exam dish in “Shokugeki no Soma”. Not the same, but it’s me quickly throwing something together for lunch .

I’m going to try using the manga recipe next time… but eh.

Today’s kitchen adventure: Boeuf bourguignon á la Julia Child

It’s so good, but so time consuming. Why is good food so time consuming?

So I forgot to buy parsley so the pearl onions went without parsley and I used a bottle of cabernet sauvignon since I love them and had it on hand. I also used a little less than 3 pounds of London broil steak instead of a regular stewing cut since that’s what was on sale at the market.

Acidity of the wine is perfect with the meat. Definitely use a bottle of wine you would drink if making this dish because the flavor or the wine infuses the meat. Pearl onions add a lovely sweetness to balance the acidity of the meat and sauce. I also recommend cutting the carrot into chunks and not slices so that it holds shape better and looks more visually appealing. You can also use whole peeled baby carrots.

Also, I think I suck at browning food because I needed an apron, long sleeves and a glove to protect myself from butter popping. Do you know what else would have been helpful? A mask to shield my face.

This is the first time I’ve made French food and I’m rather pround of myself. It’s also the first time my parents tried a French dish that wasn’t escargot.

Made kimchi by myself for the first time last weekend! I didn’t just spend my time playing Pokémon and watching the world cup.

Today’s kitchen adventure: carbonara angel hair pasta!

This was actually very good. I messed up and added a bit too much salt but that was easily remedied by using romaine lettuce as a wrap. Do I ended up doing like… A yakisoba-pan but instead of yakisoba, I used the carbonara pasta; and instead of pain, I used lettuce leaves.

Today’s kitchen adventure; bacon tomato fried rice.

I basically loaded my fried rice with veggies and added a slice of bacon and on egg for protein.

Today’s kitchen adventure: ajitsuke tamago.

This is super easy to make and tastes amazing.

Cooking time is 6 minutes.
Guys, this tastes amazing.

Marinade recipe:

1/4 c. Water

1/4 c. soy sauce

2 tbs sugar

2 tbs mirin

2 tbs cooking wine/sake

 and then just let the entire thing marinade for 3-12 hours.

Is that six minutes of boiling or six minutes from cold water or six minutes after water boils and heat off, or…?

catpeas: bring water to a boil, put in room temperature eggs, let it boil for 6-7 minutes, remove from heat and immediately put into a ice water bath for 5 minutes or until cool. Remove shell and then marinade.

Alternative to an ice water bath: run eggs under cold tap water. I like water bath method better because it uses less water and I can save the water for plants.

A hard boiled egg takes approximately 12 minutes, so the soft boil method takes half the time. If you want the yolk to be less runny, I recommend 7 minutes cook time which my mum liked better.

You can also achieve a slightly less runny yolk by letting the egg sit in marinade for 2 days, but this also makes the egg whites more firm.
