If something tastes good, and you ask what's in it, the answer is always butter.
I saw Julie and Julia this weekend. I loved it! It is super cute.
And, of course, it made me want to cook. And eat. So I actually came home and tried to poach an egg. I probably did it wrong, because my feeling was, what's the point? Why not just boil it?
But I started thinking about all the exotic things I could learn to make, so I started reading my Enciclopedia della cucina Italiana.
I think I have gone off the deep end.
I'm reading a cookbook in Italian. And falling asleep thinking, hm... could I make those gnocchi with sorghum flour? Or would it have to be a blend? How much is 50 g of burro (butter)? And what is a teglia?
