Above: an attempt at Nouf's Hawt Maple (a reduction of maple syrup, dried red chiles, apple vinegar, and sea salt, though my version was missing her version's bourbon element). For use on buttered cornbread or in chili or both.
Below: a gift of Groningse homemade kimchi, so authentic it was fizzing like freshly-poured tonic water when I opened it. For use on buttered basmati with a little soy sauce.
This is an often-NSFW, mostly gluten-free kitchen notebook that also occasionally threatens to turn into something else and fails, thus remaining its same old cryptic and superficial self. These posts begin to fail to explain (start at the bottom).
