two cooking experiments

2012-12-15 - 8:14 a.m.

I have already tried two of the recipes in The Four Hour Chef, the scrambled eggs and the roast chicken. My old recipes are very tasty -- my scrambled eggs involve real butter, evaporated milk or cream, and a jolt of chicken flavored salt either leftover from a ramen noodle package or else powdered chicken bouillion. My go-to chicken is the Sesame Oven-Fried Chicken. So why make a change? Mainly because his recipes are formulated with health and fitness in mind.

The Tim Ferriss scrambled eggs are relatively low sodium and are dairy-free, since he uses no milk, cream, or butter. The cooking oil used is a neutral grapeseed oil. I'll be honest. I've tried two of the variations already, and while they're undeniably healthier and easier to clean up after, they just can't compete with my decadent "hint of chicken" scrambled eggs. I'll try a few more variants but I suspect that I'll go back to my old recipe in the end.

The roast chicken is not one of the lessons. It's in the "pro" section of the book, but since I flatter myself that I'm a good cook already, I didn't hold back from tackling the project. This one is a keeper. Simply splendid. A great crispy skin even without the use of any carbs. Oh, I'm never giving up on my Sesame Fried Chicken. But when I need a good roast chicken, I'll definitely use this recipe again.

BTW, like everybody else on the planet, I'm an Amazon affiliate now, so if you need a copy of the Four Hour Chef, a cardboard box sized for lovebird playpens, or anything else, why not go through my link? You do not pay even a penny extra, but I'll get a tiny percentage, and I never see your order or your personal financial information.
