An avid amateur cook, I like to experiment with fusion dishes, usually with asian flavours. Also a rampant vegetarian, which makes cooking much more interesting. Originally trained in Italian cooking, and in an Israeli Navy galley. Currently beginning to take an interest in Middle-Eastern cooking, which is much more than it seems at first glance. Also specifically interested in snadiwches and their composition.

comment Can yeast be used as a main ingredient?
Marmite? It's yeast extract. You probably can't make a whole meal of it, but it's good as a central flavour.

comment a good substitute for pineapple when cooking a ham
I think maybe apple juice, rather than orange juice. Just a guess though.... Definitely mangoes though.

comment Using toasted sesame oil in a cilantro “pesto”?
@Jolenealaska: I can't really explain what Kaffir Lime leaves add in words, except to say that it is a distinct Thai flavor. I can only get them dried, so I'd need to soak them for a while and then add to the other herbs for processing. They are not a critical part of the flavor profile, but they do add a very nice authentic twist.

comment What is the best way to store ground coffee?
Zipper freezer bag is my choice. It was a good re-use of breast-milk freezer bags, of all things. @Robert Cartaino is right, of course. Depending on how much coffee you drink, you should take out a few days worth at a time. Or you could pre-package a week's worth per bag and just take that out each time.
