Recipe for lasagne bread (scaccia)
Holy moly that looks delicious. #   ·

Recipe for Southwestern soup
It might be properly spring now but it’s still quite chilly, so something like this would go down a treat. #   ·

Make Chipotle’s Delicious Cilantro-Lime Rice at Home
I’ve never eaten at Chipotle (the nearest one to us is in, what, London?) but coriander and lime rice sounds like a winner to me. #   ·

Why the calorie is broken
Because, in short, some calories are different from others; our bodies are more discerning about how they break down the things we eat than food science long gave them credit for. Anecdotally, it makes sense to me: I’ve been eating more protein and even more (brown) carbs since the start of the year, but less sugar. Same amount of calories as before, give or take a few, but my weight loss has been much easier. #   ·

How MSG Got A Bad Rap: Flawed Science And Xenophobia
It’s just a chemical compound. You know what else is a chemical compound? Sodium chloride — table salt. Fuck confirmation bias. #   ·

Hot dog! 100 years of Nathan’s Famous at Coney Island – in pictures
I’m not sure a Nathan’s hot dog is worth an hour’s queue in the sun on Memorial Day afternoon. But they’re alright, like. #   ·

White fish with spicy beans and chorizo
We’ve got some white-fish fillets in the freezer, this seems like a good thing to do with them. #   ·

Japan Centre online store
This crowd were at the MCM Comic Con last summer. The shipping’s a bit ridiculous if you’re not mindful to select the standard post option, but there’s a decent selection of Japanese goodies here. #   ·

Stir-Fried Chicken With Ketchup
Just chicken, flour, oil, seasoning and regular store-bought ketchup? Okay, I’m doing this. #   ·

Sugar-free tiramisu recipe
Well, except for the rum, which is made from sugar. I mean it’s basically boozy molasses. #   ·

I have journeyed to the soul of chocolate and I bring you good tidings
Very tempted to try this, if I can find a lower-budget method. I make cold-brew coffee all the time, but nothing fancy: just steep it in a cafetiere for 12 hours (I’ve got one on the kitchen counter right now) then keep it in the fridge in a Volvic bottle. #   ·

Momofuku Pork Belly
Deceptively simple; it’s all in the execution. I spot a similar preparation for pork shoulder there, too. Haven’t had pulled pork in ages, over a year it must be… But we’ve got our own thing with the overnight dry rub. It’s good, trust me. #   ·

Why food allergy fakers need to stop
It’s depressing that this is even a thing. No one thinking about the real consequences of their actions. Also, it’s deeply insulting to people who actually have serious allergies or intolerances. [c/o Kottke] #   ·

Aubergine rolls with spinach & ricotta
Made this twice last week, but with a twist: those rolls are a pain in the hole, so we just stirred the roasted aubergine slices right into the spinach and ricotta mixture. Delicious. #   ·

The foodie traveller on … reinventing poutine in Toronto
If these count as poutine, then Abrakebabra taco fries should too. I’m serious! #   ·

Recipe for creamy macaroni and cheese
I think this could do with some tweaking; I doubt it needs a pound of cheese. #   ·

Simple Rules for Healthy Eating
Exactly what it says on the link. #   ·

Jason Wilson: Paleo isn’t a fad diet, it’s an ideology that selectively denies the modern world
“The paleo diet is premised on a false image of stasis and harmony projected from an entirely arbitrary point in the long history of human evolution.” This is as damning a debunk as you’re ever going to find. #   ·

How to Make Caramelized Onions in the Microwave
Although it takes about as long as it would to do them on the stovetop, I’m not sure why I’d bother. Still, they are delicious [c/o Lifehacker]. #   ·

What it’s like to compete in the Chopped kitchen
Decent interview with a past contestant giving a pretty detailed behind-the-scenes at the Food Network’s best show. #   ·
