Working my way through some Indian recipes from a not very good book - an experiment in seeing what works and what doesn't. The night before last I turned my kitchen into a post-hurricane site with a

First test drive of the new Kitchenaid pasta attachment. I have some work to do honing my skills, but I definitely made fettuccine. With oyster mushrooms. In cream sauce. And I found a new use for one of my pants hangers.

But this was good -  nice puffy crust, good sauce. Fresh mozzarella via Formaggio Essex.
