Mark Bittman: Expert in Residence!

Hi Mark,

I really love your recipies on NTY - they have provided many a quick delicious evening meal in our home :-). I especially love your entertaining videos. I have recently started making home made paneer cheese. Two questions for you:
1. Any suggestions on what to add to paneer to make it a bit more interesting?
2. Any other easy cheeses (besides yogurt cheese featured on chow) that a novice can make at home?

Thanks - and keep your entertaining minimalist videos and delish recipies coming!

You Want Fries on That?

In Denmark, there is this really awsome sauce that is usually eaten with fries - called Remolade. It's a mayo like condiment with a little curry and sweet pickles. There is also something called a sausage mix, where pieces of hot dogs are fried with the fries. Curry ketchup, onions, and pickles are then smothered over the mixture - yum yum!

Papalote-Inspired Salsa

I threw a Mexican food party this weekend, and this salsa was a huge sucess - everyone was asking me for the recipe!! I am looking forward to finding many more on this site :-)!

I did make two minor alterations - I used lime juice instead of vinegar (that was just a personal preferance). I didn't have any ground pasilla peppers so I used a whole dried one. I toasted it in pork fat before I added it to the roasted tomatos (a common trick I used for pasilla peppers).

Twice as Expensive, Half as Good

I've eaten at Rasa Samudra, and it's AWSOME!! The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable.

While there, I started talking to an employee who was standing next to our table making some bread. It turns out, he was the owner of the restaurant! After my husband and I talked with him for a little while, he gave us a personal tour of the entire restaurant - including a tour of the kitchen where we got to meet the all the chefs (both vegitarian and non-veggie). We were hooked after that! Fortunately, Das has a couple of Indian cook books that have some really awsome recipes :-).
