Waterzooi and stoemp. For Jared, the potatoes shall be addressed first: The only complaint, here, is the dilution of flavors with too many! The recipe calls for 5 — 3 would be okay, or even fewer. Stoemp will have to be revisited without moderation.
The waterzooi struck all as a watered down clam chowder — maybe that’s what it means! That also seems to be a theme, here: Subtlety is definitely appreciated, not so much the bland. It wasn’t helped at all that in the mere moments breaking gaze to read the final steps, the stew turned to a boil, and it wasn’t blood that curdled — just like they warned in the recipe. Pshaw — who would curdle their stupid stew?
