This simple, yet flavourful recipe for chinese Scallion Oil Noodles is taken from here and as usual, I adapted it a little bit. I highly recommend to try it out! It’s easy and veeery delicious.
He’s a perfect archetype of a staid french gentleman. Sounds like Gérard Depardieu, always somewhat casually stylish and with a very, very pleasant presentation. He cooks classic french cuisine (aside from other recipes), presented in, well, french (unfortunately for me). To me, with a 25-year pause in dealing with the french language, he’s hard to understand on the first try, but it’s absolutely worth the effort!

I don’t know if my recipe for “Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino” is anyhow the traditional italian way, but it is surely delicious!
It’s cold and damp outside, its wet and it’s ugly: It’s flu weather. So, in an outstanding attempt to proctect me and herself from the elements, mean viruses and nasty bugs, my wife made some ginger-lemon-lemonade, aka “ginger shots”.
Packed with vitamin-c and the many beneficial components of fresh ginger, we are now armed and ready for battle against the common cold. One shot each in the morning! Here’s the recipe:
I plan on smoking some meat again shortly, so I find it’s a good idea to gather and sum up my experiences on cold smoking a little. I will not describe the actual processes and mechanisms of smoking foods here, but if you’re interested, read on on wikipedia. It’s worth the time.
There are three types of smoking:
Hot smoking (60 – 110 °C / 140 – 230 °F):
This is what you do in a BBQ smoker. More delicious cooking than actual smoking.
Warm smoking (25 – 60 °C / 77 – 140 °F):
The intermediate thing. Some Proteins begin to denaturate at these temperatures.
Cold smoking (10 – 25 °C / 50 – 77 °F):
The “original” way of smoking, used for centuries to conserve goods. The only method discussed here.
I have almost binge-watched this guy’s videos now and I really recommend his channel to everyone who’s interested in reasonable cooking aside from “quick’n easy” recipes. He’s a super likeable person (he seems to be bavarian 🙂 ) and he’s presenting his work in an understandable, instructive and educational way. It’s german language only, but for german-speakers it’s a must-see.

60 g yellow rock sugar
150 ml soy sauce

150 ml red vinegar (optional, otherwise just use 450 ml Chinkiang)
