Ever since being a boy, I have loved camping. Real camping – the rustic kind, sleeping in tents, fishing and foraging for food, and cooking meals over an open campfire. I was taught, early on, how to do gourmet open fire cooking.
As far as “side dishes” typically go, they are munching on potato chips or Doritos, and perhaps some store-bought deli items.
Not me. Nothing against hot dogs and hamburgers, I love ’em and will sometimes cook and eat them.

Today’s post is featuring a new recipe added to our Classic American/Soups and Sandwiches Page:
New England Lobster Rolls
To make perfect New England lobster rolls, you want to keep it simple. The succulent flavor of lobster meat is in itself what you want featured. Avoid the temptation to add much – if anything – to this simple, yet elegant recipe. Too many extra flavors can wind up overshadowing the unique and subtle flavor of the lobster salad filling. Even the use of sriracha hot sauce, if overdone, can ruin New England Lobster Rolls. You may even want to not use any hot sauce at all, but I find just a bit of it actually adds a “brightening-up” taste to the lobster. Experiment for yourself.
Note: If you are going to use fresh lobster meat, and will cook it yourself, you will need to buy four times the weight (in lobster tail form) of the amount you want to wind up with for your lobster salad. In other words, for this recipe, which calls for 1 pound of lobster meat, you would need four pounds of fresh lobster tails.
The below recipe does not take into account cooking time for the lobster, so for your convenience there is a chart below the recipe which shows how long to steam the tails.

Worldwide, especially in developed countries, there is a growing interest in using Samurai kitchen swords.
And with good reason. These knives are made in the same, millennia old traditional fashion as the world’s finest swords ever known to man: the swords used in combat by the fierce and incomparable Japanese warriors known as the Samurai.
It is a small wonder, then, that chefs and home-cooking enthusiasts are discovering the satisfaction of using Samurai kitchen swords in their kitchens. They simply cannot be beat. The sharpness of the edge they can be honed to, the length of time and use they hold that razor sharpness, and the ease with which they can be resharpened make them superior cutlery against all others.
For anyone unfamiliar with this high grade of cutlery, there are certain precautions to be aware of, and some usage and maintenance skills that are needed to be aware of and learned. This post is to provide that, as well as more, information about using Samurai kitchen swords.
Let’s get right into it, okay?
A Primer on Using Samurai Kitchen Swords
If you love Asian cuisine and enjoy preparing authentic and traditional dishes, then making homemade miso paste is a skill you might want to acquire. Originating in Japan, miso is a fermented food, made with soybeans. And it has for millennia been a staple in their cuisine. But it’s use long ago spread all over Asia, and is highly popular and included in Korean, Chinese, and many other Asian cuisines, as well.
You can, of course, just buy good quality, authentic and traditional miso paste in most major metropolitan areas, around the world. Companies like Maruya Hatcho Co., in Okazaki, Japan, mass produce miso while still using ancient and traditional methods.
You can even purchase from a wide variety here on our online foods store. For making homemade miso paste, you will need just a small amount of already prepared miso – it acts as a “starter”, with the bacteria in it initiating the fermentation process.
But there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of making homemade miso paste yourself, and using it to prepare your favorite Asian dishes. And making homemade miso paste also gives you the ability to adjust the taste with what beans you use, the length of fermentation time, additional kinds of ingredients you can include, etc. – which we get into later in this article.
But first, the basic ingredients and methods for …
