I’m mainlining season two of Mind of a Chef. I loved season one so much that I needed to wait a year to build hope that episodes without David Chang could measure up. I’m stupid. Sean Brock and April Bloomfield are awesome and are blowing my mind. I want to buy Anson Mills Carolina Gold rice and anything from Jacobsen Salt (Stumptown coffee salt on ice cream sounds ridiculously good). I also want to go cook. Early as a vegan, let’s say a dozen years ago, I hacked a creamy kofta by grinding uncooked seitan and forming balls which cooked in a sauce of spices in soy yogurt. It was so good, but I’ve never made it again. I just watched Chef Bloomfield make the dish (but with critter bits) and I’m pumped to try again. I think todays coconut yogurt will work even better. Can’t wait to give it a try.
The crust for week five ritual pizza is in the fridge. We’ll have a guest tonight so I hope this pie hits the mark. I’m almost scared to share my little babies, but it is time to see what a third party thinks.
Take good care, okay?
