I brined some chicken, and made my Smoke-Roasted Chicken, with some corn and a package of broccoli rice.

I used the scallions that I chopped here:

Using your steel

and added them to Dan Dan Noodles. I was seriously considering foaming the peanut sauce but then decided against it.

Thanks. There's two basic versions of this dish: with or without peanuts. Both versions have to be spicy, however. I like to use fresh Thai chilis for the heat and forget the chopped peanuts, I use peanut butter in the sauce.

i've found that peanuts help cut the heat of the chilis, to the point of being indispensible in many dishes. i wonder if foam would have the same effect as a peanut sauce, or ground peanuts.

btw, i.c., love the avatar, speaking of foam.

A foam doesn't really have enough body to cut the heat of a chile. It's more of a way of adding a flavor to a dish without really affecting the texture or composition because the foam itself is so airy. But there's two kinds, the second of which has more body and may help to cut heat if used correctly. They type that I usually do incorporates a liquid and the use of an immersion blender to add the airyness. The second type uses gelatin sheets, a whipped cream dispenser and CO2. The second type has more body and looks like whipped cream. However it can only be served cold. The first type of foam can made from a hot or cold liquid.
