they didn't see a difference from resting the batter, and that their goal was to get a manageable batter

Yeah, weird right?  Sounds to me like Breizh may even make their batter the day before and rest it overnight.

I'll definitely be giving the gluten idea a go...gives me another thing to buy and try!

Our last meal from someone other than me was this...     pizza from Scarr's.  Their pizza has actually gotten better, in my opinion, as they've worked the crust to near perfection for this style

I keep telling myself age is a premium.

Quick rundown of the products we liked/didn't like from home deliveries which we started mid-March: Dartagan:  Love: Quail, poussin, lamb sirloin, duck breast, Green Circle Chicken, Merguez Sausa

Delivered from The Rice Factory yesterday.  What they've received of the 2020 rice crop, milled the day it's shipped. I bought some at 50% milled, and some white. Along with some umeboshi, and a sample box of a few other rices.

If you're local, there's not necessarily a need to order online...Ni Japanese Deli (in the Essex Market) stocks some of these rices, though obviously they will not have been milled on the day you're buying them. They stock others too; great little shop.

I'm more interested in the new crop rice, but whatevs. And not to worry - I won't be buying any home mills...the people I know who have mills at home have had them for way longer than the kids, and they mill other than wheat.

Interestingly, restaurants don't especially love the new crop rice, from what I read.  Too hard to cook and hold consistently, I guess.

Do you have another box filled with laxatives? 😎

Maybe tmi, but not a problem I've ever had...except on heavy opiates! It's not like that's all we eat.

Cooked a batch of the 50% milled last night - very tasty, might need a tiny bit of tweaking in terms of how much liquid I used.

Everything sounds fancy in French.

Even Groton's with Kraft tartar sauce.    Sometimes needs must when you arrive home after driving across the Valley in gale winds.   Will try to do better....

Don't apologize at all.  We have a lot of premade frozen things ready in the freezer for when we don't want to cook.

 

The difference is that you and N premade them!
