QOTD 10/17: 'Cold' food

Postby Chef Mongo » Wed Oct 17, 2012 9:46 am

We've had a couple of cold spells here, and it's looking like this winter will be far more satisfying than the last one. I'm looking forward to making pots of chili, gumbo, etc.

So, what's YOUR "cold" food? When the weather turns wintry, what food calls to you?

Winter's a ways off for us yet but the heat has finally started to ebb. I don't really eat differently with the seasons, I do bake more though because it's not too hot to put the oven on. So lots of cookies and sweet breads in the winter.

It has to be beef stew and suet dumplings....

Or steamed steak and kidney pudding.

Or perhaps a nice thick broth :D

Usually pot roast or braised lamb breast or osso buco, stuff like that.

Note that's sweet dough breads! :wink:

Sheesh it's hot here. I miss real food. I need a steak 'n potato. Winter = soups and braises/stews.
I'd like to eat with Susie.

Tacos. Storebought pre--formed shells filled with a delicious ground meat mixture, topped with lots of grated cheese & baked in the oven until the cheese melts; top with whatever & eat. Not authentic at all, but very good.

The correct answer is goulash.

Anything that can be made in the crock pot and/or soups. Soups come together quickly and with a hard roll or some Italian bread, make a meal that leaves me full and happy, happy.

Chicken Parm. It's hockey food, and since it's hockey season, I will literally eat it twice a week until at least March. I'm not mad.

Also, again with the cornbread/sugar thing? In the above case it may be right (the 'sauce' from the beans will provide enough moisture that the hygroscopic nature of sugar is unnecessary for the cornbread to be edible), but why risk re-starting that brawl? :twisted:

Most of the above, but I'll add a couple ethnic favorites.

1) A Middle Eastern soup (called "Rishta bi Adas") of lentils, noodles, and caramelized onions. (Here's a recipe. Though the proper way to make it is with homemade pasta, I use linguine broken into spoon-sized pieces.)

2) Another Middle Eastern dish called Shish Barak. Think of really hearty beef tortellini (or kreplach?) in a thick yogurt soup/sauce (though the idea of beef kreplach in yogurt sauce might be considered heretical in some circles). Recipe here, though I like to bake the dumplings in the oven, just long enough to dry it, but not long enough to brown it, before boiling them in the soup. Also, in our family, we pre-cook the filling, though I guess that's an individual preference. Finally, a recommendation to anyone who wants to make this dish more often than just once: use a round/hexagonal Russian pelmeni mold. Since discovering this gadget, we have been able to make enough to feed everyone and still have leftovers. :)

We eat molokhiya year-round, and my kids are crazy for the stuff. You can sometimes find it fresh at Asian markets, as it appears "moroheiya" has become rather popular in Japan. :)
