Fresh Rethinking gnocchi with semolina Roman style

first_img Subscribe to Mission Local’s daily newsletter (Print out here.)1.5 quarts whole milksalt to taste1/2 pound semolina2 egg yolks1 stick butter1 cup grated parmigianopepper to tastegrated nutmeg to tastePour the milk in a four-quart saucepan and season it with two teaspoons of salt. Place it on medium-high heat and bring to just below the boil. Turn the heat down to medium-low and grab a handful of semolina. While whisking continuously, gradually and slowly drizzle it into the milk, mimicking a flurry of snow. Repeat until you have whisked in all of the semolina. The mixture will quickly become dense and resist your mixing efforts. Keep at it no matter how hard it seems; you will be rewarded. It will take about seven to 10 minutes for the dough to become one big blob that detaches from the sides and bottom of the pan. Sample it. If you aren’t able to detect the taste of raw flour, the hard part is over. If you do taste raw flour, then you will need to stir for a few more minutes.Take the pot off the heat and quickly and vigorously work in the yolks, without letting them curdle. Stir in half of the stick of butter and 1/2 cup of parmigiano. Season with freshly grated nutmeg until its aroma reaches your nose while you are standing by the bowl. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.This next step requires a smooth surface lightly dampened with cool water. Marble and stainless steel are ideal; tiling or a silicone mat also work. In absence of these options, wet and squeeze a large swath of parchment paper and lay it on your working counter.Pour the blob of dough over the prepped surface and lay a piece of parchment paper on it. Use a rolling pin to spread to a one-and-one-quarter-inch layer. To ensure even thickness, position your pin in the center and, applying very light and even pressure, roll towards each of the four cardinal points, alternating directions on each roll. Remove the top parchment paper and let the dough cool completely.In the meantime, butter the bottom and sides of a shallow baking dish with two tablespoons of butter and sprinkle with one tablespoon of parmigiano.Cut the gnocchi with a one-to-two-inch cookie cutter of your preferred shape. Have a bowl of warm water by your side; you will need to dip the cutter in it every five to six uses, or it will get too sticky to function effectively. Lift the cut dumplings one by one and arrange them attractively in the baking dish by slightly overlapping them in long tracks running in opposite directions. Any leftover dough can be re-gathered, re-rolled, re-shaped and re-used without any adverse effects, so use all of it.Dust with the last of the parmigiano and dot with the remaining butter. Place in a 375˚F pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes, until heated thoroughly and with crusty spots of a rich golden brown color on top.Bring to the table while still warm and fluffy and help your guests serve themselves without getting burned. Watch their eyes widen in happiness, as bite after bite they taste the love you poured into this simple wonder of home cooking.Note: This dish that freezes perfectly. I get it oven-ready, then seal it well with plastic and aluminum and put it in the freezer. I move it to the refrigerator the morning of the day I plan to serve it, then unwrap it and bake it as above while I am making a salad to complete the meal. You can keep it frozen for up to three months. Gnocchi is the Italian word for dumplings. The most popular in the family are the ubiquitous potato based, but many different types can grace Italian tables. One of the most beloved is gnocchi alla romana, a semolina-and-milk savory deliciousness whose flavor remains in the memory trove of every Italian child. It is a dish that will make foes into friends, rivals into lovers. They are easy, if a little time consuming. The making of this dish is best shared with someone whose company you enjoy. One of you can drizzle the flour while the other is whisking and you can alternate stirring duties, all the while chatting and making sure you pick the right wine for dinner.Roman-style semolina gnocchiServes 8 peoplecenter_img Email Addresslast_img read more

The RFL has confirmed details of the Rugby League

first_imgThe RFL has confirmed details of the Rugby League rule changes that will be implemented during the 2013 Championships and Super League seasons, which kick-off next week.The rule changes have been applied in all pre-season friendly games after being approved by the RFL Council last year following proposals from the RFL’s Laws Committee, a body comprising past and present players, coaches and administrators that was formed in 2012.The most notable change will see new interpretations to the advantage rule in which a team gaining possession from a forward pass or knock on will only be deemed to have taken their advantage if they keep possession until the next tackle is complete.If possession is lost before the tackle is completed, the referee will go back to the point of the original infringement and award a scrum against the team that infringed first. The referee will rule that the team in possession has not had an advantage if they are tackled close to their own goal-line.Other notable changes will see amendments to the current marker tackle rulings, changes to the ball-in-touch, touch-in-goal and dead-in-goal rulings.The law changes in full are as follows:Ball in touch or touch in-goal or dead in-goal (Section 9)A player is deemed to be in touch if any part of his body touches the touchline or anything outside of the playing field. Similarly, a player is deemed to be touch in-goal or dead in-goal if any part of his body touches the touch in-goal or dead-ball line or anything outside the field of play in those areas. If a player who is in touch, touch in-goal or dead in-goal touches a moving ball then the team who kicked the ball or knocked on are responsible for the ball going out of play. However, if the ball is stationary in the field of play and is then touched by a player who is in touch, touch in-goal or dead in-goal then that player is responsible for the ball going dead.Scrum on 20m lineOther than as outlined above, the game is restarted after the ball has gone into touch by forming a scrum 20 metres infield opposite the point of entry into touch but not nearer than ten (10) meters to the goal-line. In all aspects of general play, a player who does not deliberately play at the ball (e.g. ricochet or rebound) will not be disadvantaged by a consequent restart of play when the ball has gone dead or into touch.Penalties – where takenA penalty kick resulting from an offence at the kick off shall be taken from the centre of the halfway line. Any penalty kick arising from the restarting of play from an optional kick on the 20m line shall be taken where the offence takes place. Any penalty kick arising from any other 20-metre restart shall be taken from the centre of the 20m line. A penalty kick resulting from any offence at the drop out from between the posts shall be taken from the centre of the line drawn parallel to and 10 metres from the goal line.Changes to Interpretations:Late challenge on the kickerA late challenge on the kicker will no longer result in an automatic sin bin for the player who tackled late. The referee will still have the option to penalise, sin bin or dismiss the player if he sees it as appropriate.Calling held if a player is draggedThe referee will call held if a player is being dragged when there is more than one tackler involved. The referee will call held once he sees one of the tacklers (where there is more than one tackler involved in the tackle) take up a position where he is holding up the player and moving backwards towards the touchline or his own in goal area. If the player continues to drag after “held” has been called he will be penalised.Referee signal for team cautionThe referee no longer needs to inform the captain verbally that his team has been placed on a caution. In order to keep the game moving, the referee will inform the team and spectators that a team has been placed on caution for a period of time by pointing at that team and circling his other arm in front of him.Quick 20-metre restartA team can take advantage of a quick 20m restart if the player collecting the ball after it has gone or been made dead in the in goal area runs back to the centre of the 20m line while retaining possession of the ball and takes the restart himself. In addition, all players from the team taking the 20m restart must be back inside the 20-metre area, the referee must be back on the 20m line and the restart must be taken at the centre of the 20m line. A mark will be placed on the centre of the 20m line as an indication to the players.AdvantageIf a team gains possession from a forward pass or knock on then they will only be deemed to have taken their advantage if they keep possession until the next tackle is complete. If possession is lost before the tackle is complete then the referee will go back to the point of the original infringement and award a scrum against the team that infringed first. The referee will rule that the team in possession has not had an advantage if they are tackled close to their own goal line. Foul play by the team attempting to take the advantage will be penalised at the point where the foul play occurs.Markers not square when the ball is playedWhere there is a quick play the ball and a marker(s) does not have time to get in position, he can be played onside by getting into the position he should have been in at marker. Once he has got to that position he can make a tackle. The referee should penalise players who get into a marker position but choose to leave early before the ball has been played.last_img read more

Club First Team Match

first_imgSaints fell behind after tries from Danny Addy and Ryan Shaw before we responded in typical Saints fashion with two tries from Naiqama and Makinson to send us in 18-14 up at the break. Jimmy Keinhorst put Rovers back in front early in the second half before Jonny Lomax and Makinson again turned the score in our favour. Will Oakes pulled another try back for the hosts, but Naiqama and Makinson completed their hat-tricks before Regan Grace put the icing on the cake with a marauding run late on.A tight opening affair saw both defences standing firm, but it was Rovers who produced the first try after a repeat set on Saints line resulted in Addy picking the ball up from dummy half and crashing over from close range.Rovers were in again on the very next set after a break on the right edge allowed Hall to kick long and Shaw got to the ball first to touch down giving Rovers a 12-0 lead with 13 minutes played.Saints hit back though after winning back to back penalties on the Rovers line.

Complaints filed over misplacement of grave markers at Wilmington cemetery

first_img Lee says when he visited the other day, his mother’s temporary marker was ripped apart and was laying on top of a different gravestone.“You basically have to come in a move the sand off the headstone. And when I came, maybe a week ago, I couldn’t even find my mother’s temporary marker,” said Lee.It’s another chapter in the long time saga concerning the upkeep of Calvary Memorial Cemetery. Nearly one year ago, cemetery owner Jack Krupicka handed over management responsibilities to Wilmington attorney Bruce Jackson.Jackson says they have made considerable improvements.“When I took that over, things changed pretty quickly. And we have not had a whole lot of trouble since then,” said Bruce Jackson.While Jackson says he has not gotten any complaints within the last year, Lee says his family has filed complaints with the NC Cemetery Commission.He has even called the number posted outside the cemetery, but has not heard anything.“I don’t think we should have to call them to say, ‘Hey, you might want to go by your property and maintain it a little bit before you start to get more complaints,’” said Lee.Lee says he has friends who are also upset with the upkeep, and they want something done.“When you put your family in their final resting place, you want that place to be presentable,” said Lee.The NC Cemetery Commission says they have had 13 complaints about the cemetery since 2017, and four complaints in just the last two days. WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — One man says the Calvary Memorial Cemetery has no record of his father being buried there.“It’s heart wrenching to know that you chose this place for your loved ones’ final resting place and it’s not being taken care of,” said Eric Lee, who’s mother and father are both buried at Calvary Memorial Cemetery.- Advertisement – last_img read more

Neighbors crowd Leland meeting to hear latest plans on Cape Fear Crossing

first_img The plans have been discussed for 26 years, but now the NCDOT is finally in the process of selecting the route and construction start date.During Thursday’s Leland Transportation Oversight Committee meeting, the board got an update on the project. Residents who attended feel it wasn’t sufficient.“It was somewhat informative,” Brunswick Forest Resident John Lafakis said. “You only have one representative here that has any say in the ultimate findings. I think they were kinda tipping their hand towards what their thoughts were, the other ones are obviously gonna make a difference.”Related Article: International dog competition happening in Brunswick CountyWilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization Director Mike Kozlosky explained that as of right now he has selected a core and has functional designs.The next steps are to hold public hearings in the spring, and a final merger meeting in the summer, but Lafakis believes that some of the information they provided is outdated.“[He feels that] there’s a lot of studies that were done but they were done 10-13 years ago, so how valid are they today? The whole complexion of this place has changed in the last 10 years,” Lafakis said.There are still several routes being considered. The final decision on the project is expected to be made by this summer. BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — It’s not every day a huge crowd shows up to an early afternoon meeting at Leland Town Hall, but that was the case Thursday. The big talker was the Cape Fear Skyway.Most of the people who attended the meeting live in Brunswick Forest, a neighborhood that could potentially be impacted by the crossing.- Advertisement – last_img read more
