Rice cooked in Bamboo I (I did it!)

Oh my God.
I was the guy who was in ontario that asked about this.
THE POWER OF THE INTERNET

I was a child in Malaysia and I remember getting this when my family and I were on long road trips. There would be stalls set up on the side of the road cooking rows upon rows of this.

Did you make sure to rotate the bamboo every 10 mins?
They also usually soak the bamboo in water for a night prior to cooking. Another tip is to not add all of the coconut milk in straight away. Rather add 50% in the start, and slowly add it throughout the cooking process.

Lastly the flames must NEVER touch the bamboo, rather the heat.

Hope this helps!!!

Demi-glace creation failure... distressed groan... compromise or forget it?

I don't mean to bring this up again but I stumbled across this..

This is what I do,

I take approx a pound of chicken wings (along with any caresses you have lying around) and lightly dust them with milk power.

I roast the moisture in the oven for abut 30mins (at most).

After I've done that I put everything in a pressure cooker (be sure to de glaze and add drippings to cooker as well)

Cover with enough water and add bay leaf.

I left it cook between 3-6 hours.

I then reduce the sauce, the excellent part is that it will thicken up quickly because of the collagen in the chicken wings. That's primarily what you're looking for in the veal to begin with.

Where can i find bresola (or breasola) in Richmond Hill?

I ended up finding Bresola in Longos (the one on Bayview and Mjr.Mak). The quality was meh, It wasn't as dehydrated as I wanted it to be, it was almost moist in certain spots. Not to mention that they improperly slice it.

Verjus (wine replacement-ish) & Vincotto

Looking for something closer to the GTA or more specifically Richmond Hill, but thanks!!

Anyone have any idea on where I can find Verjus & Vincotto in the toronto/richmond hill.

Chowhound isn't really a place for you to voice your political vendettas.

Twinings Irish Breakfast DECAF

i think it's stocked over at Brunos Fine Foods (in richmond hill). But I suggest giving them a call before you go just in case its not there (905) 737 - 4280

Banana Leaf & Bamboo

Do you know of any garden centres in the GTA area that are open now that sell appropriately sized bamboo?

Banana Leaf & Bamboo

Do you think that those would be food grade?

Banana Leaf & Bamboo

I was wondering where to get Banana Leaf & Bamboo in the GTA area. I'm planning attempting to make a classic malay dish called 'Lemang' and those are two quite vital ingredients.

Thanks!!

So what's the average Chowhound's Race / Ethnicity?
