*****Official Food Experimentation Thread*****

My New Year's Resolution is to make something I've never made before at least twice a week. This is three-fold benefit for me: (1) by forcing myself to cook more, I'll eat out less, which will in turn (2) help to eat more healthily; and (3) I'll open myself up to more kinds of foods and different recipes and, hopefully, find some new "go-to" meals when I'm lazy and need something quick and easy.

But part of this is learning to play with my food, and today I'm starting that by making carbonated fruit. I've got some dry ice that I'll put with some cut-up fruit into a plastic bottle. As the dry ice melts, the CO2 will pressurize the chamber and force itself into the fruit.

And since I have dry ice, experiment No. 2 will be homemade sorbet or ice cream made with dry ice.

So my challenge to my fellow ChiefsPlanet foodies is to play around this year and make something different. And post about it here.

Well, the pork shoulder cooked in the slow cooker all day. I could smell it outside the house before I opened the door. It smelled so freakin awesome. I haven't tried it yet because I pigged out on Indian food at lunch and I'm having some brewski's.

My wife doesn't like or eat pork but she tried this and she's raving about it.

I'll be having some later.

We used a variation of this recipe. But we used bone in pork shoulder and a different spice rub.

Two jars of preserved lemons from good friends in St. Louis. Going to play around with them over the next month or so.

It's not authentic in any way shape or form, but I like to chop up preserved lemons (the rind) really finely and add in place of rice wine vinegar in fried rice.

Hell no, that was too easy so I used a damn potato peeler lol. You learn something everyday. All jokes aside, I did use a potato peeler :-(.

We do some, but frankly I tend to buy the dough (laziness). Sorry, I'm not much help in that arena.

And I've only had Fun House a couple times (I loved their wings, though).

FMB, I appreciate your food experimentation passion. However, the science meets food trend if the past several years just doesn't do much for me. I'm more into learning and mastering traditional cooking methods

I just like to have fun. And this thread is about experimenting just twith new foods, doesn't have to be sciency or anything. In fact, the dry ice is probably the first time I've ever done anything remotely resembling molecular gastronomy.
