How to Make a Checkered Cucumber

Recipe By: cookbuzz (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/454)
Serves 2 Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Cucumber 12cm

Method

1
Cut the cucumber in half lengthways.
2
Cut out wedges with a small sharp knife at equal intervals and to the same depth.
3
It will look like this from the side. To make it look attractive, cut the wedges down to half way so the cut part and the remaining green part are the same width.
4
Now cut the cucumber vertically into 8 or 10 even slices, all the way through.
5
Once sliced, slide the cucumber a bit to look like this.
6
If you shift it by half and then move the other half back to the original position it will look like an arrow shape (top photo).
7
Cut them into squares to look like sushi. Of course, it's all entirely edible.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto.

It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
