Bloggaday 130 – Ginger Rice and Parmesan Sourdough
A week or so ago I was watching Iron Chef America, and they had battle ginger. That means that each dish that the Iron Chef and the challenger cook must contain and spotlight ginger in them somehow.
Well, one of the chefs cooked some rice with slices of ginger in the water. I saw that and figured, “I like ginger ail. I should try that.”
A few days later, I actually made it. This was the first time I’ve worked with ginger, and I’ve got to say, I was surprised how good it smelled. It kind of smelled like lemon pledge, just not as cleanery. So I liked it quite a bit. Unfortunately, that’s where my joy with the ginger kind ended. I cooked the rice but wasn’t a fan. I ended up drowning it in some cinnamon and finishing it.
I’ve also heard that parmesan is good on rice, but given the sweetness of the ginger-infused rice, I figured cinnamon would be the better call for this one. Maybe in the future, I’ll try parmesan on some rice.
I’m not sure how good parmesan and rice will be, but I do like me some parmesan. It’s not that I really put parmesan on a lot of stuff, but what I do put it on, I like a lot of it. The only things that I can think of that I really like parmesan on are breadsticks and the like.
I’ve been a fan of Sizzler’s bread for years. A couple of years ago, I started making it at home every once in a while.* Sizzler’s bread is sourdough bread buttered with a butter/parmesan mix and grilled on a skillet. It’s even more awesome than it sounds.
Next, John’s Incredible Pizza is a buffet pizza place. Their breadsticks are sourdough, and they lightly butter it and dust it with some parmesan cheese. By some, I mean about ¾’s of a pinch per breadstick. So if they put more cheese on it, it would be better.
Lastly, Chuck E. Cheese breadsticks are also sourdough and parmesan cheese. On second thought, it might be pizza dough though, I’m not too sure. Whereas John’s incredible pizza breadsticks are individually cooked, Chuck E. Cheese just cuts up a mass of bread into the individual pieces.
I guess the point is, Sourdough bread + Parmesan cheese equals pure, yummy greatness. Yes, yummy.
