Week 4: Black Beans


Black beans. Our next ingredient. They’re musical, or so I hear. Umm… I really have no idea what to say about them. Honestly. So… look for ward to our next dishes!


Week 3: Mushroom


Hey Everyone!

I see that Eric did not post a video for the eggplant challenge (Lame, am I right?) Just kidding, as I haven’t posted ANYTHING. I know, and I apologize. I actually want to thank Eric for an amazing job in keeping everyone informed of our unfortunate, current life obstacle (some strange institution called school), and for actually keeping up with the promised cooking schedule. I’ll be sure to post everything (videos, included) once I have more time, and Ryan will do the same.

ANYWAY, no more excuses and explanations. This week’s secret ingredient: MUSHROOM. That’s right, every Californian has experience with ‘shrooms, and we wish to embrace the culture this week… legally. So, join us on this magical journey, as we try to add our fungi friends to our culinary repertoire.

Week 2: Eggplant

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there! Coming off of eggs, this week we’ll be dissecting the eggplant and try to make the most splendiferous dishes out of this ingredient!

Why eggplant? Well it is Mother’s Day, and we all came from the seeds planted in our respective mother’s egg. Gross you out yet? Great.

The eggplant should be interesting, and hopefully nothing but good things will come out of our endeavors. Before I leave, here’s an eggplant tidbit (from Wikipedia, my most favorite source of all things): the vegetable gets its name from a group of eggplants in the 18th-century that resembled eggs in color and shape.

See you throughout the week.
