Recipe from here. Very tasty, rather like a pancake. As you can see I burned it slightly even after 12 minutes, so I think the optimum cooking time is something like 10 minutes.

“Dirty rice”

This was a really tasty Cajun-inspired dish adapted from this recipe. I used goose giblets from christmas eve, and improvised my own “Cajun spice mix” using Chipotle chillis, smoked paprika, oregano and allspice.

I didn’t make the gorgonzola pizza.

Best of the lot may have been the truffle pesto and caramelized onion pizza.

3 types of pizza

Pesto, aubergine, goats cheese pizza. This one was very good, the best of the lot:

Black garlic and pancetta. I made a mistake here by cooking the black garlic (which turns it into tasteless charcoal). I should probably have added it after cooking. In any case you couldn’t really taste it:

Kabocha squash and honey pizza. Nothing particularly special:

Kuro ninniku drying out

I placed the garlics on a wire rack to dry them out for a week or two. After that they’ll be ready and I’ll store them in the fridge.

Kuro ninniku day 12½

February 1st, 2015

I think it’s pretty much ready now. After checking that the taste is still fine once cooled down, I may take it out of the rice cooker and start to dry it out.

Kuro ninniku day 10

January 30th, 2015

image

Similar to day 7; still not very sweet.

Update: But after leaving the black garlic to cool and dry out for about 24 hours, it was a lot better. I think it’s nearly ready!

From Hugh’s veg book. Very delicious and went surprisingly well with a random honey and ginger yogurt from the fridge.
