I don't have a dishwasher, so I use a nail brush or vegetable brush -- anything with lots of stiff, short bristles -- to clean fine sieves, under running water.

DinerGirl said "something that won't bore the heck out of your friends because you'll want to talk about it all the time." Boy, that's the truth. My friends are sick to death of hearing about French Laundry, Thomas Keller and Micheal Ruhlman, but that doesn't stop me from talking about them!

Thanks for the tip about cleaning the tamis, DG. I odn' tuse my dishwasher often, but for the tamis, I will.

Last night I made scalloped ham and potatoes. Not gourmet, but comfort food for me. As I was cooking, I wondered how Keller and Ruhlman would up the ante on this dish, one they'd pass on for sure were they to encounter it in the form I make it. Fingerlings, I decided; cream instead of 2% milk and Smithfield ham instead of the hohum ham I used.

Maura: Thanks for your kind words and good luck finding a book to cook from. You know, you don't HAVE to pick just one book. You might want to tackle an ethnicity, or a food group, or something like that. Do what gets you excited to be in the kitchen... and something that won't bore the heck out of your friends because you'll want to talk about it all the time. :)

JoP: I rinse my tamis in the sink and then (because it's a stainless steel tamis) I run it through the dishwasher. It's the only way to get all the goop out of it. If you don't have a dishwasher, you could probably soak it in the sink before rinsing it. Or, maybe take it outside and clean it with the garden hose. Any other readers have a hint for Jo on how to clean a tamis?

Eleanor: Yes, the crouton can be a pain in the ass, but the taste is necessary. We ended up just picking up the crouton and eating most of it by hand.

Ah, another success. Congratulations. Love reading your insights, DinerGirl, and it's beyond cool that the neighborhood kids are involved in the project, too. Warms the heart it does.

Here's a question for you.....after pushing whatever through the tamis, how in the world do you clean it?! The other day, I made cream of tomato soup which I've never liked before because after pureeing, it's still sort of grainy. This time, after pureeing, I "tamis-ed" it, and it was awesome! Smoht and silky, just the way I want it to be. But the clean up....oh, my. Wasn't easy getting that tamis clean. Do you have a helpful hint?

This looks really good -- I've made something similar to this and found that it's hard to eat with that crouton. Did you have trouble with it?



Amen, and WHOOT sistah!

Diner Girl,
I've been considering doing the same thing you're doing with the French Laundry, I just haven't decided which book to use yet. I've been cooking since I was ten, and am the de facto hostess in my group of friends. But I've been feeling lately that I'm not adventurous enough. So thanks for the inspiration.
Also, I can't really add much to your thoughts on media snacking. I love that you still read a real-eo newspaper. We have a love affair with print in our house.
Keep cooking, and as I've said before, don't ever stop writing.
