Oh Yeah, I’m on Vacation!

I must have been so excited about going over 2 million subscribers on YouTube that I completely forgot to publish the traditional, “Chef John is Vacation” post. 

Okay, that’s probably not the actual reason, but I did want to mention it. Hard to believe we have that many people following the channel, and that’s without the help of any Russian bots. Anyway, I’m on break this week as well, but will be back at it next week with two brand new videos. Stay tuned!

Good timing. I'm catching up on some of your recipes this week. I did the Lebanese flatbread, the Muhajaamaza (sp?) dip, Farro risotto, and Mustard chicken thighs last weekend. All came out awesome. Enjoy your vacation.

"Slacker!" LOL :0). Wish I had your hours, John. My wife and I enjoy your stuff.

By the way, when I was stationed in Spain several years ago (Circa 1979-81), there used to be a tapa made of octopus that I was really fond of. It contained chunky sliced boiled octopus legs, onions, bell peppers (and I think garlic) floating in a clear or cloudy sauce (not sure what the sauce was consisted of). They would top it with a sprinkle of paprika and serve it with a chunk of bread that was just made that same day. Tackle that with a good cold Spanish brew on tap and it was heaven for me. Question: Are you familiar with that and do you know how to make it? Still waiting for you to tackle the Spanish Tortilla too! TTL, Steve...

I just want to thank you for making my belly a happier place, it's rounding on 3 years now I have followed your recipes, and I can safely say, you are my first choice on the internet whenever I feel like cooking or baking! Enjoy your vacations!

Hi chef John,
I would like to buy a stainless steel pan. Which brand do you prefer?

Hope you enjoy your time away. You have brought back my experimenting cooking desire trying not just to cook something new, but make it different or use different ingredients. In my experimenting I have run across a condiment I never knew about or heard about until I saw it on a 1800's cooking channel. Have you ever used mushroom ketchup? I tried it for the first time last week and was blown away by it. Fits a spot between soy sauce and worcestershire. A little salty like soy without the sweat kick from worcestershire. The other day I cooked some breakfast chops. Thin pork chops lightly seasoned with salt, pepper, onion powder, dash of paprika, and your pinch of cayenne. Lightly browned on both sides and deglazed with a splash of white wine. Boiled down wine while turning over chops and rubbing the brown goodness into the chops. Let them stand a few minutes before eating. They were good but were missing something. Thought I would give the mushroom ketchup a try. A few drops on one ended up everyone wanting the bottle. You have got to try it or make it yourself.

Well said Chef! "Chef John is Vacation"...for your culinary brain! No arguments here! I have learned so much from you in the last year it's crazy! Thank you for all that you do! You are The Man! (not the bad one, the good one!)

Karen said...

I figured it out by following you on twitter. So glad that we are of like mind.

Franek Proca said...

Thank God you're not dead. I was worried.

Tryggve said...

When are you coming to Sweden for vacation? I'll show you around!

Jonathon Ashkani said...

When you come back, you should try to make drunken noodles with homemade rice noodles.

Margaret said...

I hope you are having a wonderful vacation. We certainly miss you!

When you get back to work could you please take a minute to find out what the story is on the Chef John's Most Epic Summer Grilling Guide we were supposed to get from Amazon for adding the Allrecipes Alexa skill? I entered the contest and they sent me an email inviting me to download the ebook but there was no link and when I contacted customer service they told me I couldn't actually read it, I could only listen to it somehow with Alexa! Is this true? I think they were giving me the runaround. I'm really eager to do some Most Epic Summer Grilling and I need all the guidance I can get. Thank you so much for all you do.

How do you make a good baked potato? Where the inside is bright , white and fluffy, not the heavy, packy, off white damp looking ones.

Jesse said...

Oh thank god. I was getting quite worried! Guess I have more time now to work on perfecting that Octupus.

Nate said...

Way to go, Chef!

Mufiti said...

Chef John you should make an Ethiopian food recipe. I know you made a berbere spice video but it would be pretty awesome if you use that in an Ethiopian recipe.

ScienceSusan said...

Didn't there used to be a 'What's your food wish?' button? Too many requests for Onion Bhajis?
