I Have a Request!

As you can imagine, I get a lot of requests. I love the interaction with my viewers, and I try as often as possible to satisfy these culinary whims. But, it's not easy. So, if you've made a request and I haven't gotten to it, please don't take it personally (except for Pete, who wanted a classic Italian Lasagne with no cheese, meat products, wheat or salt. He also said he wasn't crazy about tomato sauce, but "use it if you have too").

As you can see from the photo, I do have a system set up for emailed requests. As soon as I get one, I print it out and stack it neatly on my desk. So be patient, I will eventually get to soon as I find it.

By the way, now that the site is pretty much set-up, I will hopefully be back to posting every week day. On the weekends I'll try to post some fun food stuff I've found surfing the web. Anyway, keep those requests coming! Enjoy!

I can actually think of a lasagna recipe that might fit that description. It was a vegetarian lasagna from Eatzie's and it was surprisingly delicious!

I'm sorry but if you take away the cheese, the meat products, wheat, salt and tomato sauce you can't call that dish Classic Italian Lasagne, its just an empty plate.

Chef John,

You are the Dwight Yokum of your bad joking.

Anyway, I'm really old school and one thing I don't see on menus anymore is sweetbreads. How to prepare and cook sweetbreads properly would be something I'd like to see. Also, the tongue salad with bread crumb salsa at Zuni cafe was very good, any tongue recipes would be great. I've always braised tongue, but you mentioned grilling it I've never tried that.

Like I said,I'm old school,I miss the red velvet patterned wallpaper at Ernie's. Is that still there? I'm too old to be a hipster and to bald for a man bun. But, I love your channel.

Thanks for all you do.

Der Chef John,

It would be great if you can teach us how to bake Key Lime pie. A video with a fool proof recipe would be great!

Good morning from Dorking, Surrey, England.
Firstly I must congratulate you on what is really the best site for recipes. I find your presentation simple to understand and you make everything look, and sound, achievable.
Having just watched you make lasagne on YouTube I thought I would look for the recipe. I have just typed Lasagne into your search site but cannot find the recipe. There is just a photo of a stack of paper. Is there anything I should know?
Very best wishes.

Hello Chef John, I recently tried a recipe for gnudi, with limited success. I would love to see your take on this classic Italian dish. I have a great big container of of ricotta cheese leftover from making your amazing meatball recipe, so please hurry before it goes bad on me or I have to make more meatballs, (which wouldn't be a bad thing, but they have to go on top of all that spaghetti and you know the carb count on that!)

hi, Chef John

Years ago, when I was traveling in the Netherlands there was a Surinamese colleague who cooked us Stockfish. I don't remember much but it was a dried salted whitefish (cod?) that was soaked and rinsed thoroughly. It was cooked with garlic, tomatoes, among other things. It was served over rice and it was one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. Slightly fishy, with an extremely robust flavor and almost jerky consistency. Have you ever made something similar? I would love to see your take on it.
