Disappointing because they must have been a lot of work.

Beijing Pop Kebab -- new nothern Chinese restaurant at 122 Mulberry

Passed by this place on the way to Shanghai Heping yesterday, in the midst of the San Gennaro madness (we had gotten stuck in the crowd at Canal and Mulberry and headed up Mulberry to get over to Mott...big mistake, it was mobbed). In any case, the menu looks VERY interesting, with various jiaozi (boiled dumplings, lamb with scallion, beef with celery, and pork with leek and shrimp among them); various kebabs spicy or not spicy, lamb, beef, chicken, sausage, "fish tofu", fish balls...); Qingdao-style snacks such as fried dumplings, pan-fried buns with beef curry (me want bad) and with pork, "sauced beef roll cake" and one with beef and chili peppers; Beijing pickled vegetables (spicy and sour cabbage); Beijing-style noodles including zha jiang mian of course and some cold ones; and a couple of "cab [driver]" dishes...plus a range of the usual dishes and some more unusual ones, like sliced lotus root with black bean sauce. Looks well worth trying out. It seems just to have opened and at not a terribly propitious time, since you really have to get through the feast crowds to get there right now. Can't wait to try it.
Sorry I can't give you the Chinese name because it's written in seal characters which I can't read. The Chinese on the menu is in simplified characters.

Since it's just about the 15th and I have a little time on my hands, I thought I'd start part two. I have a yen to bake something today but can't get it together to choose a recipe. Any ideas? And what are you baking these days?

I'll have to try them. This is a totally non-sweetened, tangy bread with caraway seed in it.

So, is the cover squeezy, or what?

I made George Lang's potato bread from Beard on Bread for the umpteenth time last weekend -- what a swell recipe. I used KA bread flour and the loaves came out enormous. I'm fixing to have a grilled cheese on it for solo dinner tonight (himself teaches Wednesday evenings and forages for himself when he gets home).

Mine too (the first one). Is the new book cover squeezy like Plenty (the UK edition of which has b&w drawings on it).

Son of a gun. I thought they'd still be grown. They're a little tarter than Red Havens but intensely peachy.
Speaking of varieties, I bought an "Angel face" peach at our greenmarket yesterday. It's enormous (like about 6 inch dia). Looking forward to tasting it. The other peaches they had were all quite large.

Yes. Why this posted here I'll never know.

The yeast-raised waffles in the Breakfast Book are beyond compare. (I didn't know about the Vongerichten...hmm...)

That cake is divine. I would use the recipe for any white cake application.

Mao (not the same character as in the Great Helmsman's name) means cat in Chinese.

I can't figure out how to link it, but the new thread is up. Move the playpen over a little bit!

Nick Malgieri can do no wrong. Check the recipe for blueberry pie for the best method of thickening fruit pies ever. (This was meant as a reply to Breadcrumbs.)

Get them both, they're masterworks. I am fond of EGOR too but the others take the cake.

As I recall there's a good chocolate cake recipe in the Price.

Hi, I'm out from under my usual work corvée today due to the holiday, so here I am back. I haven't bought any cookbooks in about a month (what is WRONG with me?) but I bet you have. I was happy to see that Diane Kochilas has a new book coming out, I always enjoy her work. And this season (perhaps not September) will see new baking books that I'm really excited to get my hands on -- those by Malgieri, Beranbaum, Greenspan in particular.
What books are tickling YOUR fancy?
