Ok no problems that time so here whats on my menu.

New years eve. Chicken wings, not sure if i am going buffalo stlye or try this recipe from https://oldfatguy.ca/?p=4552

maybe both. Can prepare ahead of time and serve them up as needed. They will be servered with celery and carrot strips and a homemade ranch dressing for dip.

New years day. Menudo and carnitas (both can be made ahead of time) , then any of the wings that maybe left for a afertnoon brunch of what ever dips chips etc. are left.

Cocktails i am sure will be varied, as it is BYOB drinks .Some of the folks that are comming get pretty exoctic though so who knows.

Yes i know not to many healthy things , but hey sometimes you just have to go with tasty, and it only happens for me about once a year. I am pretty moderate the rest of the year.

Hey Kit, happy new year! Glad to see you on the forum.

Sorry about the ghost town ... I'm working on getting the fixed.

This was our first year open at the hotel and the main restaurant was sold out. Great crowd, no special menu, just regular dinner service. We're getting ready to roll out a new menu in the next few weeks.

All the best!

Though i can't contribute as much knowledge on the fixuns as some, i try to impart some, even if it is just a possible conversation starter so that maybe i can glem and try some of the creative ideas and or the how too's that you and a lot of the others have presented.

Cooking with wine? - Say a red wine reduction 

 

I have a question for you please.  Every so often I cook with red wine in my food - not all the time - but sometimes.   I would like to know whether or not - you would use a cheap bottle of red - I usually buy a cleanskin - half the price of a decent bottle of shiraz as an example - and have never felt as though the quality of the wine is not good enough.  I was following a forum elsewhere - where someone posted that you should never use cheap wine.

I don't know about you, but I love looking on the internet and trying out new things.   

I have three go to celebrity chefs who have a tonne of informative youtube channels -In no particular order I look for Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver -  however, have you ever decided to look at more than one chef's video, and do a combination of what they suggested?  That is exactly what I did a couple of weeks ago - and it was such a good outcome - I thought I would share:

Chinse anyone?   

I cooked last night for dinner Chinese Pork dumplings.  They are easy to make with minced pork meat, water chestnuts and spring onion mixed in.  I will admit that I did not, make the dough but bought dumpling wrappers from the local Chinese shop.  I wil often freeze a batch and eat a batch - if that makes sense.  

I also used my slow cooker, to create a Chinese Beef dish.  It is a very simple receipe - that I use by taste:

Has anyone tried doing Octopus? I know there are two (at least) ways: Sous vide followed by drying and searing;  or old school cooking for longer, or pressure cooker. Just wondering what people have found most useful as I have all options, but would love to hear other's experience.

thanks
