I have an older recipe that calls for 1 tsp. of carbonate of soda, and 3 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda. I've never seen carbonate of soda in supermarkets. Is it available? Can you substitute bicarbonate of soda? Thanks.
Modernist Cuisine's Scott Heimendinger shows off a cool trick from their latest cookbook, Modernist Cuisine at Home, to create fizzy, carbonated grapes using a whipping siphon.
Smoky-Sweet BBQ Beef Short Ribs
Beef ribs can stand up to strong flavors. Here, a spicy-sweet rub with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and brown sugar coats the meat, which is roasted to tenderness. Finishing on the grill with a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce ensures the meat gets a nice char and the sauce lacquers.
Easy Crab Cakes
Crab cakes are so often disappointing -- mushy or gummy, full of starchy filler. But these easy cakes are full of beautiful lump crabmeat, and a light panko coating ensures they fry up crispy and golden brown. Bright, lemony aioli makes a piquant counterpart to the sweet, sweet crab.
