Pane Carasau

A traditional Sardinian flatbread, this crisp cracker's name comes from the dough. You are supposed to roll it thin enough that you can read sheet music through it. I've always wanted to try it. This event gave me the perfect excuse. I am not sure I rolled them thin enough to see through them. But it was as thin as I could manage.

Ingredients

  • 1 T active dry yeast
  • 1 C warm water
  • 2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 C semolina flour
  • olive oil
  • Freshly ground salt

Procedure
In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast with warm water.  Let bloom for 10 minutes, until the mixture is bubbly and foamy. Fold in the flours and gently form the dough into a ball. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and let it sit for an hour.  After an hour, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for three minutes. Cover the bowl, again, and let the dough sit for another hour.


After an hour has passed, knead until smooth and elastic. Preheat your oven to 475 degrees F. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and place on a floured baking stone. 


Roll each piece out in a circle as thin as you can. It should be between 12 and 15" in diameter.


Brush the dough with a light coating of olive oil. Sprinkle with freshly ground salt.


Bake until the dough crisps up and browns a little bit. Mine took about 6 minutes. Let cool slightly before eating.

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
