My fridge is always a bit on the sad and empty side. I’d rather have to get a bit creative with empty cupboards than to risk ingredients going slimy in my crisper. Potatoes and onions are mercifully long-lasting, and it’s always good to have a few... more

Thickening sauces with bread is a very old-world way to use up any sort of stale bits you happen to have, but it also makes a sauce with a wicked rustic texture and is totally different than thickening with starches or using a reduction. more
