    Dinner 2021

    Cleaning the fridge: Turkey with broccoli ... Stuffed aubergine ... ”Soup” (aka “everything taste good when submerged in chicken stock”)
  2. Speaking of which - there is at least bear’s paw tofu (熊掌豆腐), combining the thrill of the name with the sustainability of a soy bean-derived heritage ...
  3. I do chicken soup in mine. Chicken parts, aromatics, water. 2 cycles of the “brown rice” setting ...

    Dinner 2021

    Brought the little one home after his week at the grandparents ... so of course back to our weekly routine of Pizza & Movie night on Sunday ! The all-time favourite mushrooms & salami variety (two were prepared and consumed) ... Gyros (recycling Thursdays pork neck roast) with zaziki ... ... enjoyed together with Lupin the 3rd, an early Studio Ghibli classic.

    Dinner 2021

    This is Fleischsalat (literally “meat salad”). Recipe see below ... Absolutely. I think every butcher in Germany has his own slight tweak on the recipe, but it is very simple and I made it here, in HK, in Japan, in Spain. It will turn out always a bit different, but delicious anyway. And for my German version I use Japanese mayo, so ... Fleischsalat (all in weight%): 50% emulsified sausage (here, a product called “Lyoner” is used, which is derived from Italian Mortadella. The latter is fine, and Bologna (Polony) is perfectly acceptable. You want so

    Dinner 2021

    At my parents place - German Abendbrot. Rye bread with oats & sunflower seeds, rye rolls with mixed seeds. A couple of cold cuts and cheeses. For me the most important one being these: aged Schwartenwurst, aged Kopfwurst, fresh Schwartenwurst and Fleischsalat. Rye, a generous helping of butter and traditional sausage. Plus beer. That’s home 🤗

    Lunch 2021

    I drove up to my parents home to pick up my little one, who stayed there for one week vacation (home schooling be praised). It is a leisurely 300 km drive and you might be aware that there is no general speed limit on German highways, so the travel time is practically up to you. I arrived 30 min early. Which gave me the opportunity to visit my favorite Döner shop in the nearby city ... unfortunately, due to Corona you can’t eat neither there nor on the street (masks have to be worn at all times in the city center). So I sat in my car, stopping at the side of the road, hazard warnin
  9. Thanks, then the spasms make sense to me !
  10. Nicely put 😉 But this intrigues me a little bit - I’d assume the deep frying would properly cook the flesh. I am not aware that denatured proteins still allow intramuscular ion flow (to cause the contractions) nor that they allow for the actual contraction to take place. As I am not familiar with these movements: Is it a reversible thing, e.g. opening and closing of the mouth or is it a movement into a final fixed position (which could be the result of a last heat-induced contraction of the jaw muscles, cause by carry-over from the frying process) ?

    Dinner 2021

    Long day at work ... and not a successful one. Felt to lazy to cook and dropped in at Aldi on the way home to find something quick to make. They had „Greek weeks“ - so ... Meze plate: Spanakopita, dolmades, braised chickpeas, olives, pita bread, cucumber, fried aubergine, Gyros and battered squid rings. Plus a lot of zaziki. And some Ouzo. Remember: rough day 😉

    Dinner 2021

    Butcher had pork neck on offer ... got a nice 2 kg piece to play with. Cut it open to make a roulade, filled with a mash of salt, garlic, anchovies and rosemary. Rolled up, rubbed with fish sauce and roasted to a core temperature of 62 oC ... Served with roasted potatoes (same pan) and a sauce made from roasted onions (still same pan, pan juices and two tablespoons of Boursin). Yummy !
  14. I can echo the praise for the Fallot mustards. My favorite is the gingerbread variety - mellow, but with a superb flavor and a great base for sauces accompanying game and fowl ...

    Dinner 2021

    Not sure what Ruffles are, but these crisps are quite good (and my wife’s choice). Plus an excellent excuse for a third highball 🤗
