FLUFFY DELICIOUS GOODNESS
SOUTHERN BUTTERMILK BISCUITS: these are the simplest biscuits i know how to make. the trick is the self-rising flour, which is one of only 3 ingredients. they're simple to make but the results are anything but. like i've said before, complexity is the combination of 3 disparate elements. (btw, i do an incredible biscuit that has probably 12-15 ingredients but it takes some advanced planning to engage w/it).
SPICY DELICIOUS GOODNESS
this dish was taken from david chang's momofuku cookbook. i've cooked through quite a few of the recipes at this point & have to say it's a great cookbook. in their uncooked state,the rice sticks are more like some kind of synthetic plastic than food but once cooked were crispy outside & chewy inside wonders. the sauce is made from fermented bean curd marinated in hot chili sauce. the stink of the fermentation lived up to its hype but was tamed by the slightly sweet, very hot sauce.
