Great early morning. Alexa Weibel brought us a terrific recipe she adapted from the chef Tony Tan’s “Hong Kong: Meals City,” for spicy received tons with chile oil. They’re Cantonese in origin, so significantly less mouth-numbingly fiery than their Sichuan cousins, and remind me of a dish served at Chef Yu, a Cantonese cafe in the Garment District of Manhattan that labels the dumplings, confusingly, as “Szechuan gained ton with crimson incredibly hot pepper oil.”
At Yu, the cooks nutritional supplement the chile oil with a sauce of peanut butter thinned out with incredibly hot water, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. This is an wonderful blend, and I intend to make it materialize with the spicy gained tons this weekend, possibly as an appetizer in advance of a major study course of ginger-scallion chicken.
I hope you will join me. But if not, I have nevertheless received a good deal to propose. It’s possible a fried fish sandwich alternatively? Or chicken with 40 cloves of garlic? Or this wonderful chopped salad with chickpeas, feta and avocado?
I assume this weekend would be an outstanding one particular for soy-butter basted scallops with wilted greens and sesame. Also to make this lemon-raspberry danish with mascarpone. (Or a grapefruit crumb cake. Your choice!)
Most of all, I hope you are going to make Tejal Rao’s new recipe for chiles rellenos (previously mentioned), which she adapted from a recipe that Andrea Serrato of Mamis Xiles in East Los Angeles gave her. Each individual move in the method requires time and notice, from roasting the chiles to filling them, dipping them in batter, frying them and last but not least simmering them in salsa. But the payoff is large, as Tejal writes in a column that accompanies the recipe: “beautiful, puffy, vaguely chile-shaped clouds.” And probably that could be your supper for Sunday night time.

Now, it’s almost nothing to do with baby lettuces or white asparagus, but this is a quite attention-grabbing tale about a motion to open up a national park in central Ga, by Janisse Ray in The Bitter Southerner. “Do you enjoy everyday living adequate to imagine this spot we are trying to make actual,” she writes, “to lend your imagination to its creation, to sit for a second and believe of a blackwater river operating by way of crimson clay down the state of Ga, with all its levels of trauma and all its layers of adore?”
