    Where to go with bananas foster

    I like a small amount of curry powder in my banana's foster. it adds a little kick and depth of flavor that I really enjoy. I also sometimes put ginger into it.

    Posh or modern haggis preparation

    when I was in scotland I had a few upscale preparations of haggis, one of them was fried and served over a bed of lentils. I thought that this was a great way to have it. I've also had it crisped up and served a la bangers and mash which I always liked especially with a whiskey gravy type sauce and caramelized onions.

    thanks for the quick response. I'll have to search out some heritage breeds. I wonder how kurobota or some of the other breeds would do or if the berkshire is probably the best option.

    Sounds awesome. Has anyone experimented with the various heritage breeds of pork and butt and how that equates to quality of the finished product. I'm always suspect on cheaper cuts how big the difference would be. I can see how for beef it would make a big difference, just not sure on pork.

    Meyer Lemons: Recipes and Storage

    anyone have a great meyer lemon marmalade recipe preferably british style so not very sweet?
  10. wanting to start SV and looking to start the right way I'm curious as to what the difference between the VP112 and VP120 in terms of doing some of the cool things like watermelon chips etc are. I mean for the difference of $650 to $850 would seem like it might be worth it. Looking forward to hearing back from some of people who've purchased the VP112.

    Where Are You a Regular?

    I'm a regular at my Local butcher. Bill the Butcher. I'm slowly working on getting them to carry some game for me and I sometimes get to sample new and interesting things. Its really nice going in and having them recognize you and start having them cater to your needs. I'm also a regular at my local produce place and he always takes care of me whenever i have issues with stuff molding or quality not being up to par on some of the produce items. They are super friendly as well and always give me a heads up when something special is coming in soon. I was a regular at a bunch of places in LA before I moved up to Seattle, The Golden state where i'd go once or twice or a week. In terms of perks theyd always make sure that I could get a seat, got to try a bunch of stuff that wasn't on menu. In addition they frequently would save special items for me knowing that I would be in later that day. Also became friends with one of the owners who I talk to a bunch to this day.

    European Style

    I think that i'd be more worried about residue in the glasses from dust, or left over dishwashing items than I would be about a little water. Remember you invert the glass to wash it out so 99.9% of the water drips out of hte glass. I find that having a slightly wet glass does help with the head etc. To an extent where even when i'm home I'll give a quick rinse. I don't have one of these fancy things yet though when i build my home kegerator etc set up I will be adding one.

    SodaStream – at home soda maker

    I really like mine as well. It does a great job. Anyone experimented with carbonating things other than water like Cranberry juice etc? The warranty says not to but i'm tempted still.
