| by Annie | vegetables, sides, bread

The ramen noodle originated in China, but with the 1958 invention of the “instant” ramen noodle by Momofuku Ando, Taiwanese-Japanese founder and chairman of Nissan Foods, its popularity skyrocketed worldwide. In fact, the instant ramen noodle was voted the greatest Japanese invention of the 20th century by popular poll! One last tidbit …. South Koreans consume the greatest amount of instant ramen noodles per capita per year!

In Mayflower, succotash was described as a soupy mishmash of corn, beans and whatever fish and meat were available. It was also said that pork was a delicacy that the Native Americans found almost impossible to resist so I included ham in this succotash recipe.

Any recipe with the word “Parmesan” in it is sure to please and this recipe is no exception. The chicken breasts have a slightly crispy coating and the cheese topping adds a creamy texture – a delicious combination. (By the way, did you know Chicken Parmesan originated in the U.S.?)

Hungarian Spaetzle (Dumplings) Recipe

| by Lisa | vegetables, sides, bread

Traditionally to make spaetzle, you place the dough on a wooden board and hold it over the boiling water as you cut strips off. It is a very messy job. It’s well worth the effort, but next time I am going to use a spaetzle maker.

Eliot’s Pasta Amatriciana Recipe

April 19, 2016 | by Annie | dressings, gravies, sauces, spreads

In The Magicians, Eliot was preparing an Amatriciana sauce and pasta when Quentin and Alice finally broke into the physcial kids’ bungalow. He added to the sauce some of the red wine he was drinking and some cream. Eliot said “I think if I weren’t a magician, I’d be a chef. It’s just such a relief after all that invisible, intangible b…s…, don’t you think?”
Amatriciana sauce is an Italian tomato sauce made with pancetta and a red pepper kick. It is typically served over bucatini, a hollow spaghetti-type pasta, but fettuccine works as well.
