Cake release comes in a spray now too. I think the liquid one is a bit better.

I love Shanghai Heping. Their fish wrapped in tofu skin and fried (fu yi huang yu) is to die for.

Lest you think I've given up on baking, I made a pizza on Saturday night (and forgot the salt in the dough, damnit, it seemed weird in texture and I should have realized something was up) and l'Otto di Merano rye bread (a favorite recipe) from Carol Field's Italian Baker yesterday.

Thanks everyone, I will take all of this into consideration...and thanks for not posting "read the threads, you lazy thing" which is what a similar request would most likely be met with on the Manhattan board. The Bay Area rules :)

Hi, will be in SF soon and am on the hunt for some Cambodian (please say there are still Cambodian restaurants there, there are none in NY), Thai and Chinese restaurants that will knock my socks off. Former Berkeleyan, know the City and the East Bay well, willing to travel...thanks for any and all suggestions.

I think I'll forgo baking this weekend, unfortunately -- I'm on a clear liquid diet and prep for an Unpleasant Medical Procedure, and can't see making bread during it, which was what I was planning. Waah...

Try some combo of the 2. It's the whites that make things eggy, at least according to Cook's Illustrated.

That sounds divine. Maybe more egg yolks and less dairy for more intense chocolate flavor?

This is the recipe I use...I use the whole 8 oz package of cream cheese though. They're fluffy, a bit like cake rather than cheesecake.

roxlet suggested I make this cake, knowing there's a cherry fanatic in the house. I made a half-recipe and used my sour cherries preserved in vodka as well as their syrup instead of the maraschino cherries (which, bleh). It stuck to the pan a bit (used Wilton's cake release spray, they warned you needed to grease and flour, silly moi) and took about the full time it said to bake. Smells and looks good.

We get it every time we go to Shanghai Heping. Love their version.

They were illegal to grow here for ages because they were supposed to carry some sort of citrus or other blight. zi think they can grow them now, but not many do.

We love this place. Had some excellent salt and pepper softshell crabs there the last time we went (from the specials blackboard).

They're hard to come by here. I've seen red and white ones lately, no black.
