You get out of bed on a Saturday morning thinking hmmm what would be nice to create and enjoy eating also !! Well something fun to do is bread , so how about we do stuffed buns ??
Bread dough ;
Flour , salt , yeast dried, sugar , water
Beef curry ;
Olive oil, ground beef,chili , onions , garlic, ginger, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, tomato, coconut milk, red curry paste,fish sauce, soya sauce, coriander
Spinach cheese stuffing;
Fresh spinach leaves,onions , garlic, olive oil, fresh cream , gruyere cheese , Parmesan , salt and pepper
Paprika and rock salt to top buns
This is so much fun, from the preparation , proofing and baking ! Count at least 2 hours ! You can also prepare stuffing ahead of time ! It's easier to make buns with cold filling !
I know you wanna eat them , but do me that favor !!! Let them rest 5 minutes up side down before serving them. It will improve the texture of bread and you will still be able to munch them at a fast speed ....
I suggest you make a spicy tomato beef sauce for spinach buns and for the Thai beef curry well a soya coriander chili dip will match very well ,

The other night i was watching tv and the program "Taste" with Antonie Bourdain and got inspired to cook , I opened up the fridge and saw a few potatoes ... Hmmm what to do?
Potatoe Gnocchi was to be... Found some cream , garlic , egg , cream cheese, Parmesan and to add a little VIP touch .. Black Truffle mushroom shavings
Don't forget all purpose flour , extra virgin olive oil , salt , pepper and optional herbs for garnish
First step is to boil the potatoes in salty water , if your potatoes are small you may keep skin on to retain a little nutrition to the dish , boiling the potatoes will take around 15 to 20 minutes ..
Remove them from water and mash all up adding flour and one egg during process , the action will also cool down the potato mix ...don't forget to check seasoning ... Shape mix into long shaped sausages and cut them into the desired shapes
Drop them into boiling salty water , and on the other stove , in a frying pan , sauté a chopped garlic clove in extra virgin olive oil , add fresh cream a spoon of cream cheese flavored with fleur de sel , two round of the pepper mill ,, tosse the drained boiled Gnocchi into sauce , check seasoning and set up into plate ...finish dish by topping it with grated Parmesan cheese and black truffle mushroom shavings ... Easy ah and so delicious ! So get cooking don't just be a couch potatoe , get up and cook that potatoe
