I like to slice or chop up cured chorizo, saute it in a pan till crispy and then cook greens in the chorizo fat. YUM. Some kale, collards or chard all go well. Add some chickpeas too, toss with pasta and call it dinner.

Ah, I love it. I donated a similar day cooking class, but you described yours so eloquently. Hopefully between the two of us, we can bring new, delicious recipes and learning experiences to folks' kitchens. Lord knows any amount of money that can be raised for Jennie is worth it.

David Chang's kimchi recipe is super easy - basically throw everything but cabbage in the food processor. Let sit in the fridge and eat away a week or two later.

Plus, you can technically make kimchi out of ANYTHING. Overflow of greens from the farmer's market? Check. Spring onions out the wazoo? You can do it. Or classic napa cabbage, it's all delicious.

Blogger Marisa of Food in Jars just posted a tomato jam that, while she canned, I'm sure you could freeze. It's one of the few recipes I've seen that do NOT require peeling, so it would be perfect for these cherry tomatoes.

I ditto the Slom bottles from Ikea. A friend of mine owns a few of them and keeps them filled with water in her fridge. I just love the retro-mod look of them and they seem affordable.

Mmmm this would be even better with pretzels (or potato chips?!) rather than corn flakes!

I think it's gorgeous, a bit oversized, but here's my comment on the "pristine" factor. It was being photographed for a magazine. OF COURSE it's pristine. A kitchen may not look that usable when it's spotlessly clean, but rarely would I ever imagine seeing a "dirty" kitchen in a design mag.

Orangette's braised cabbage is also an amaaaaazing vegetable dish that has you wanting to eat it alone, nothing more. (Although it is tasty with a sausage.)

i definitely think it's no sub for the real thing. guacamole, salsa, soups, chilis need fresh garlic. but it's great for meatballs and a few other instances where you need the garlic 'essence' but need it spread around more evenly. still love my fresh garlic, but garlic powder (NOT salt!) is one thing i actually need to add to my pantry.

Ikea also makes great small glass bowls that are good for mis en place. Not varying sizes like WS, but super affordable.

Love this list - I have some of those Pyrexes and love them, especially the casserole pan with handles and a lid. So easy to use, carry, store! (And the smaller ones are handy, too.)

So I made these last minute and ending up serving them only a week old. While they didn't hold together in slicing because they were still moist, it was delicious! I actually stewed the figs in warmed wine because I was impatient, and that works well! (It also makes a DELICIOUS reduced sauce for sweet or savory uses.)

I really want to remake these, and get something like said steamer basket for proper drying. It's such an intriguing, delicious flavor combination.

Be really, really careful about sharing memberships. Even Costco down in NC is cutting down on card sharing. If you're not who your card says you are, don't try to use a check or card. (Basically, if there's any way they can see your name isn't the card holder's name, you may be in trouble.) My brothers got a membership, and when my mother tried to use a check there, they basically didn't let her buy her cart full and said that if she tried to use their card again that the membership would be cancelled.

Do you think this would work for fresh pumpkin? I picked one up with no real plans on what to do with it, and no carving in mind. :D

I created something that I loosely call polenta. Basically, just grate corn straight from the ear, extruding as much of the delicious corn milk along with it. Add some milk or cream and butter and cook on the stove until warm and basically until as cooked as you want it. It's deeelicious, especially since fresh corn is so good.

I had never seen the Ikea bottles before a few weeks ago, when a lady I've been working with some had them. I adoooore glass bottles, and this makes me want to trek out to the Red Hook Ikea to pick some up. I think they'd be awesome for tea, but my main concern is if you don't have a dishwasher (me), how do you get it clean all the way to the bottom? (Dishwashing novice here!)

Wow, I'm intrigued. A few questions of curiosity:

Can you do anything with the wine after it's had the figs soaked in it?
Is it ok to soak the figs and wine in the fridge? In the same (fruit) fly concerns, I'd worry about the pitcher.
And do you think something like this could work "in place" of traditional sausage? Considering proscuitto wrapped figs are popular, I could see this turning into a delicious savory-sweet pizza topping with proscuitto... Mmmm...
