#76: noodles - April 2016

Our noodle cookoff was held at Chris & Kristina's on the 16th of April. It was a small one, but noodles are filling so we were good with it.

spaghetti ramen
Chris: "spaghetti ramen" spaghetti cooked in alkaline water with shiso kimchi, daikon in plum vinegar, cold ramen dressing, fresh cucumber & avocado, and black garlic
Jen: "Vladimir Putinesca" linguine puttanesca (olives, capers, & garlic in a homemade passata), with a gremolata crostini
mushroom canelloni
Kristina: "what do you mean, you forgot the mushrooms?" mushroom canelloni with cauliflower cream sauce and balsamic syrup
dan dan noodles
Malloreigh: "you po dan dan" Chinese hot oil noodles with black vinegar, charred bok choy & scallion, fermented tofu, chili bamboo shoots, and almonds

Also in attendance were Jeff and one other person, maybe Sarah? I can't remember because it was over 2 years ago.
