I’ve gotten a bunch of emails, so here are some of them, and Jo of Amuse Bouche
writes about the Chicken Vesuvio episode:
A few weeks ago Eric over at gardenfork.tv dropped me an email and told me that he was going to create a video of him making my Chicken Vesuvio recipe, it would appear that he has made good on his threat promise.
Eric films his world and puts it out there for everyone to see, recipes, garden issues, a little of everything. If you have the time, take a look at his video on tomato hornworms.Â Nasty, nasty little buggers.
A couple things Eric:
1st: It’s Boston Eric, East Coast, definitely not the Midwest.
2nd: It’s pronounced boosh.
3rd: I would have deglazed with white wine and mounted with the butter off the heat, but hey, that’s just me.
4th: The puppy….so cute!
Go on, have a look.”
“I’m a fan of your blog. I’ve always been into plants and am finally getting into cooking (graduated from college and now have time to cook and money to eat). I tried out the navy bean and kale soup and thought it was pretty good. The kale adds a nice texture. Tonight I made the broccoli and anchovy pasta (I made way too much). Anyway, good job. You asked if there is anything we’d like you to cook. All I can say is to keep giving dishes that are simple and healthy. I’m also not a fan of the red meat. More soups would be nice and maybe some simple breads. Oh, and I’m always on the look out for a good pancake recipe.”
“Just watched your episode on Chicken Vesuvio and really enjoyed it.Â You’re a personable guy and the quirky editing makes it fun to watch.Â Will definitely check out the rest.Â Keep up the good work!”
“I really enjoy watching your video podcast.
I am a dedicated gardener myself and love
to get my produce into the kitchen for fabulous
dishes.Â My wife likes the food but never has
gotten into use of my work so I took up the cause.
Keep it up.Â ”
“re: building a cold frame:
“pi r squared” is the area of a circle
“2 pi r” is the circumference
You get the same length in this case because r is 2 — if r was anything else,
the numerical values of the circumference and area would not be equal.”
