- 2 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
- 4 Tbps Milk Powder
- 1 cup water
- 6 Egg Yolks
- 3/4 cup Sugar
- 6 oz Hook's 10 Yr Cheddar Cheese, shredded
In a bowl mix together the egg yolks and sugar. Set aside.
Pour cream, milk powder, water in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Gradually ladle the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture while whisking vigorously. Then pour the whole mixture into the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of spoon or to 170F. Do not boil. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
Add salt to taste, starting with a small pinch (seasoning will depend on saltiness of cheese). Pour custard through a fine mesh strainer into an airtight container and chill in an ice bath until temperature drops to 40F. Refrigerate overnight.
Churn ice cream according to manufacturer's instructions.
Greeted by a girl in a pretty floral Chinese top. We said we had no reservation. No problem, cause they leave seats at the bar open for walk-ins. As, we were walking though the dining room, your eyes wonder into each of the 5 rooms that showcase Chinatown in an non tacky way that most American Chinese restaurants do. Hodgepodge, but fashionable chaos. When we sat down at the bar, which looks like your sitting outside on black patio with a lattice top, is tight in many ways. Right way as you sit. Your close to the people on either side of you and not very much room to have a feast or share things, which both involve many plates. But that all drifted away from the mind as we both were surprised to see a mutual friend bartending.
He sold us right way on the Peking duck, which neither of us ever had before. They only have so many a night and does take some time to come out. So, if you know you want that going in. I would order that right way, then look over the menu to decide what else to eat for the evening and you'll still probably get other dishes before the duck.
Hope to go back to Duck Duck Goat sooner then later. To try some noods, scallion pancake and mapo tofu that were hard to not get but got passed on since getting the duck. I'll be sitting at the bar again. But if you want a table. Best of luck. On Opentable there is nothing till August and even then it's the dreaded 10pm time. It is patio season thou too.
A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to go to Cincinnati, Ohio with my boyfriend for a few days.
When we first arrived we went to Asiana Korean Restaurant. We shared seafood pajun(pancake). I got dukbokki, Surprise Surprise, but they called it rabukki cause it had ramen noodles in it. and he got jajangmyeon. Like at most Korean restaurants you get complementary banchan. At the end of meal instead of getting usual candy with your bill you get yakult. Reminds me of Fruity Pebbles in liquid yogurt form.
That night we went The Listening Loon to have some drinks. They had live music playing that night. Besides serving craft beer by the bottle or draft. They also have a "mini store"inside. About 2 shelves that has beer and I'm pretty sure wine too for purchase. Also learned I know nothing about the craft beer scene in this area. I did end up grabbing Nowhere In Particular Batch #001 a double rice IPA in a 22oz bottle. On the side of the bottle it says, "The beer you're holding is a beer that will never be made again. It is the only one of its kind and represents an ever-changing lineage meant to abolish monotony and cleat the way for audacity." Deep yo, basically grab it and drink it if you are lucky to find it.
The next day we went to Sidewinder Coffee for some wake me up. They have a small patio in the back that has a residence rabbit living there. Was just relaxing the sun. Not giving a care about us. After coffee I went over to Casablanca Vintage which was right across the street from where we were staying. Vintage paradise. I spent almost 2 hours going though all the stuff. That night we went to Skyline Chili. One thing Cincinnati is know for. Get the Cheese Coney, which is chili hot dog with a mound of shredded cheese on top and a 3 Way, which is spaghetti noodles with there chili and a mound of shredded cheddar cheese on top again. Enough and not too much for one person to eat.
The next morning we went to Blue Jay for breakfast. Usually you get bacon, sausage or ham for your protein. But around here on most menus you'll see goetta also as a option. Intereating texture with the oats in it. The biscuits and gravy looked funny with the gravy looking like it had been spread on by an off set spatula. Hey it's a dive! That afternoon I stopped into Graeter's for ice cream. There mostly known for there chip ice creams. Got the black raspberry chip. I understood why when I took my first bite. The chips are urge, Their more like chunks. Some an inch long.
On the morning we left we checked out Happy Chicks Bakery. A vegan bakery. Got a Carrot cake cupcake, a rose and lemon cupcake which was also GF and a Chocolate cupcake. Never had vegan baked goods before. Wish I could of gotten there crossiant to try out. Totally spaced, next time I guess.
