Food'N'Flix: Jiro Dreams of Sushi {Invitation}




Food‘nFlix
We've come full-circle and it's my turn to host Food'N'Flix where we watch movies and head  into the kitchen and cook or bake or make something based on a recipe they actually make in it or just something we were driven to make after watching it.

This month was my pick. And I selected Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

I watched this movie with some girlfriends last year; I remember it being a visual feast, seasoned with a quest for perfection. I'm looking forward to watching it again. 

If you're inclined to join the fun - and I really hope you are - watch the movie and get cooking.

Post about it on your blog with a link back to this post and to Food'N'Flix. Use of the logo is optional.

Your post must be current (during month of film). And of course we don't mind if your post is linked to other events...the more the merrier.

Have fun with it!

  2. I have had this DVD for months and I have yet to watch it (long story), so excited.

  3. I was just telling The Hubs about this and that we needed to watch this one together. :) And, we have neither EVER tried sushi. (Hey, we live in the Midwest.)

    1. You definitely get a pass on never having tried sushi if you live in the Midwest. I am always wary about eating seafood, in general, when I can't SEE the sea! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    2. Ummmm...I live in the Midwest. We actually have an awesome Sushi restaurant in town!

    3. @Heather! I think it depends on where in the Midwest. I was in Oklahoma for a year and definitely felt like a fish out of water.

  4. I just watched this the other day and while I'm not going to quite attempt sushi, I do have something in mind!

    1. Can't wait. I was thinking of skipping the sushi-making, too. I've done it...but know that it won't be up to Jiro's standards.

  5. I watched this movie a few months ago and I am looking forward to watching it again. I loves me some sushi--just not making it (I am lazy like that!) ;-) but I have several ideas already.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
