Cooking With John – Part 5

Well the house was starting to smell pretty good and I thought, all right, I better go get myself a little taste, so I grabbed a little Japanese teacup and a teaspoon, and I put some of it into the little teacup, and I let it cool down so I wasn’t just tasting the hot food but really the spices and all.

the mix, and the texture of the walnuts played a texture to come back as soon as it hit your palate and as soon as your palate got used to the spices.

Now this taste tells me that the little bits of vinegar, cumin, sugar have given it the depth I was going for and the textures of those simple vegetables and the beans were really kind of a pleasure. Such simple fare done for the wonderment of taste. The shredded potatoes and beans are great together. They’re both starches, but they both have a different texture on the tongue so they really had a nice play. And then you’ve got the nutmeg that lingers with a little bit of tomato sauce. Mmm. It’s kind of nice. It’s a it’s a good taste on a cold winter night when it’s good to be inside for the duration of the evening.

So I went back for a little bit more of the dishes after they’d cooled a bit and the bean dish was a little bit on the spicy side and it could be calmed down the next time I serve it with either a chopped salad with some cucumber and carrots and cottage cheese or something to cool it down because for most people, guests in your house, you don’t really want to hit them with something that’s too spicy.

Well, you know I was also thinking, gee this would have been great too to have some sliced apple cold from the fridge, some cold water and the next time I try this I may even try planning some some figs or some chopped Granny Smiths into this dish too.
