Food Thread: I'll Have What He Is Having....Once!

Swiss Classic.jpg

That's a Swiss Speciall, concocted by one of our resident bartenders, naturalfake. Notice I didn't insult him by calling him a mixologist!

1 oz Gin
1 oz Kirsch
2 oz Rye
.25 oz Simple Syrup
Shake, strain into glass.
Float .5 tsp of Grand Marnier. Garnish with cherry.

He discussed this drink last week, and I was intrigued, so I made it that night.

And I didn't like it. At all. But it was certainly interesting and it gave me the opportunity to use some Kirsch, which I haven't used since I made fondue about 300 years ago.

it had medicinal undertones that I found unpleasant, and I though that the gin and the rye competed too much. I also think that with a little tweaking it could be an interesting drink for my palate. "My" being the important word here. You may love this drink as it is. That's why, while it may be tempting to make fun of silly or odd drinks, the only thing that matters is the pleasure you derive from them. And if a chocolate martini with extra chocolate sauce makes you tingle all over, or if a bourbon and coke (yuck!) is your idea of alcoholic perfection. then have at it!

That's the fun thing about cocktails, and why I absolutely love dropping into a new bar and discovering a new twist on an old standard, or even a completely wacky drink like this one. Sometimes they are successful, and sometimes they aren't. It was however interesting enough for me to finish it, and that's not just because I am a cheap bastard and don't like wasting booze.

By the way, it tasted nothing like what I expected, which was a hoot. The first thing I did when I tasted it was check whether I had in fact used Kirsch, or if I had grabbed something else in my haste!

Bacon Jam? What's not to love?

Hrothgar baconjam.jpeg

I have had this stuff at restaurants, and have even made something like it. Off hand I can't think of anything that won't be improved by this. And don't say ice cream, because a bit of this on top of a scoop of butter pecan or vanilla ice cream would be damned fine eating.

[Hat Tip: hrothgar]

******

Pro Tip: Never ever remove the top trim of your microwave/exhaust fan to reveal the secondary filter and the internal duct work. It is attached with hidden and poorly anchored screws, and it doesn't seem like something that is intended to be done regularly. Yet the space behind it collects an amazing amount of grease and dirt and yucky stuff.
******

Am I the only one who thinks that canola oil tastes sort of crappy? It is specified by many chefs, and I have seen restaurant menus that feature it as some sort of virtue-signalling frying oil.

But...damn! I think it tastes sort of rancid and fishy, and I stopped using it long ago. There is a local place that has a solid kitchen, and they use it for their frying. There is nothing so disappointing as a French Fry that has been cooked perfectly but tastes faintly of three-day-old mackerel.

My go-to oil is plain old corn oil, and if I am frying something special (a rarity) I will sometimes use peanut oil, even though it is quite pricey.

By the way, I have fried in vegetable shortening, and that stuff is great!

******

A chef John parody that's pretty well done.
******

We always have tons of leftover mashed potatoes. It's not that I don't make a good version; it's that I always make far too much. So this sounds like a fun little snack for Friday morning after Thanksgiving. Or maybe Thursday evening after the dishes are done!

Mashed Potato Bacon Bombs!

CaliGirl's rib roast!

It starts with a high temperature sear, then a low temperature cook until it turns out a gorgeous medium-rare. Or it was barbecued. She's not sure which is which, and since she made one of each, we'll just have to guess.

And look at that cutting board! it was made by the son of a friend of hers, and he doesn't do it professionally, he should.

31 I didn't make much food this week, but I ate some really nice food in DC. I especially recommend a Laotian place called Laos in Town if you're ever in DC again.

Link in nic for pictures.

Two somewhat amazing things: (1) DC banned indoor dining, and so restaurants set up outdoor dining. In 30-odd degree temperatures. By setting up tents with heaters. It did mean drinking more.

And (2), despite DC being on lockdown due to mad rioters, restaurants remained open and happy to see customers. It was almost like the curfew was a response to a problem that nobody thought really existed.

You'll definitely get better results with bread flour. Bread flour has a higher protein content, and makes the yeast make longer gluten chains for better stretchiness and rising, or some such.

No. I have never used bread flour. If you make whole grain breads, you will want some gluten to add, but that's it.

57 Infidel, found this:

The Difference Between Bread Flour and All-Purpose Flour . It's all about the protein. All-purpose flour has between eight and 11 percent protein, while bread flour contains between 12 to 14 percent. That extra protein in bread flour results in a slightly higher rise, but you'll still get a good rise with all-purpose flour.

67 I try not to buy too many ingredients that are basically the same. So all-purpose flour is pretty much it. And dark brown sugar--if I need light brown, I'll add white sugar. That's all it is anyway, white sugar with varying amounts of molasses. I've considered not buying brown sugar at all, but sugar plus molasses mixed at home is sticky.

Often use salted butter when a recipe calls for unsalted, if I think they're being trendy rather than that the recipe needs it.

I am assuming that it is the steel version, and not the non-stick. One of the things that may help is to cook at a high temperature...almost at the smoke point of the fat you are using. That will be a different temperature depending on the fat.Then...do not move the food! Let it sit in one place until it gets brown and crispy.


A trick I use is to drag the food across the bottom of the pan to make sure it has enough fat on the surface, then place it where I want it and never touch it again until I am ready to flip it.

88 Simple good cool weather one I did this week - Balsamic Pepper Chicken with Almonds.

chicken (white meat), cut or pounded into scallopini - eggs, flour, bread crumbs - 2-4 peppers (green, red, yellow) cut into thin strips (2") - sliced toasted almonds
raisins or golden raisins - olive oil - balsamic vinegar
salt/pepper

Coat chicken scallopini the usual way (flour/egg/crumbs), set aside.

In a large pan saute peppers in olive oil until they begin to soften. Toss in raisins, saute a few minutes.

Add balsamic vinegar (enough to drench the peppers, generous), and salt/pepper.

Cook down a bit, remove, add almonds, keep hot. Saute breaded chicken in olive oil. Deglaze pan with water and balsamic - our over pepper mixture, serve that over chicken.

97 Canola oil stands for "Canada Oil", also called "Rapeseed".

It's a derivative or more correctly formerly a mainstay from the paint industry is the way I heard it, Anyway it oxidizes and turns rancid fairly quickly in commercial or preserved foods. Peanut butter, for example. An unopened jar will start to take on a varnish or paint like "whang" and taste nasty fairly quickly. I store it in the refrigerator for this reason.

104 I was out in South Bend Indiana for an extended period of time with a large crew of installers, we used to hit up the bars and we used to play a game we named, Call Your Shot, whereby we would make up a name and the bartender would have to create a shot based on the name.
Some names were Sudden Impact, Mississippi Divide, The Bender, Touch Down Jesus, etc.
Female bartenders would primarily make a fireball based shot, male bartenders would usually make a whiskey based shot.
Needless to say, we got drunk a lot.

122 "Fridge cleaners", I call the impromptu use-what-you-have dishes. Often very good, as CBD says. Breakfast easiest - you can make an excellent egg scramble with almost anything (no maple syrup). Did one last week - leftover grilled tri-tip, leftover grilled anaheim peppers, leftover diced onion, leftover diced cooked chicken (forget what it was from), leftover diced tomatoes. Some shredded cheese towards the end. A bit of Tapatio on the plate. Fantastic.

Instant Pots are great! Here's a simple meal plan I discovered with it that I enjoy...

Cook a pork roast with some chicken broth and a jar of chopped-up dill pickles (brine and all). This takes about two hours. When it's done, take the roast out and cook some rice in that liquid. This takes about five minutes.

The pickle flavor is actually pretty light, not overpowering. You can easily leave the pickles out, or substitute something else for them, if that sounds weird to you, but I like that little hint of tanginess.

Sorry, I meant to say split, not spilt. Even if I did spill it, though, it wouldn't really go anywhere. Overnight in the refrigerator, it took on a consistency similar to mashed potatoes.

162 144 The pickle flavor is actually pretty light, not overpowering. You can easily leave the pickles out, or substitute something else for them, if that sounds weird to you, but I like that little hint of tanginess.

They looked delicious and the host has a great sense of humor. If you have any interest in Tolkien's books, these videos are worth watching.

Also, do a Youtube search on Hobbit recipes. There are a bunch of them. Even if you don't use the recipes, they are fun and distracting.

169 Yeah, canola oil is gross. I stay far away from it. When I accidentally get something fried in it, I'm reminded again how much I dislike it.

I don't like corn oil, either, there's something heavy and cloying about it.

I deep-fry in peanut oil, which I love, except when I'm getting fancy and doing fries or chips in beef tallow. Stir fry is peanut oil or lard. If I'm frying beef in a pan, beef tallow. For eggs, and especially omelettes, which require a hot pan, I use ghee, which is like butter without the stuff that burns.

Damn right it is. I almost bought the farm because of a boar. Friend had, by being grandfathered in, family property inside Anderson Air Force Base. He would set snares for boar using coconuts as bait (they ravaged his bananas and papayas). One time we went to check the snares, the squealing started and one charge straight at me. The snare had locked and the pig was running with the drag. Friend shot it dead just a few feet before it got to me. He said if it had gotten to me it would have gone immediately for the femoral artery. He knew a man who had died that way.

197 Another tidbit about Central CA... there's a small town called Corralitos, halfway between Watsonville and Santa Cruz. There used to be this little rural market there that had the most interesting selection of sausages. Mostly wild game... Bison, Deer, Elk, Duck, Ostridge, etc. My son and I would take a road trip up there in my old 914 and buy 2 of everything for the grill.

198 Lunch was especially nice today. A yellow fin tuna steak on a bed of rice with slices of avocado on the side. The tuna was good enough for sushi and prepared simply: a bit of olive oil, salt, fresh cracked pepper, and fennel seeds. It goes into a hot skillet for just over a minute on each side. That left the middle just warmed through. That let all the flavor of the fish come through. It was a delish meal and one I should do more often. In season, slices of fresh fennel would work well with it.

It is unhealthy! Lysol was originally marketed as a feminine hygiene product, and the company almost went out of business when doctors everywhere started telling their female patients not to use it because it was not good for them.

So, they turned around and started marketing it as a household disinfectant instead.

243 I'll tell you a drink that I always found to be disgusting, in theory, that I recently revisited and actually enjoyed, a Golden Cadillac.

1 ounce Galliano
1 ounce White Creme de Cacao
1 ounce heavy cream
2 dashes of Angostura Cocoa Bitters
Fresh grated nutmeg

It was actually very enjoyable.

Licorice and chocolate, not exactly best buds flavor-wise one would think, but I have to say it worked.

I'm gonna have to hit the store soon for a couple of utensils and ingredients I don't have, then I just have to decide between Buffalo spiced crispy chicken breasts, pork meatball and mushroom ramen, and pork flautas supreme.

It's just been reported that a group of Secret Service agents have been removed from Trump's security detail because of fears they are involved in a plan to assassinate him in retribution for the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick. Apparently some of the agents had served in units in Operation Enduring Freedom like Sicknick had.

Trump and his family are fucked. If they can't rely on the Secret Service who can they rely on.

Growing up we lived on what most would consider a rural road. Paved and lined, pretty busy, but with an unposted speed limit so 55. Our driveway was about 300 yds.long.

The mailbox was across the road.

Every year it seemed, the snowplow would knock it over, and my Dad would move it back.

Then, by spring, the mailman would complain that it was too far back, and my Dad would move it forward.

I sometimes wonder if that's still happening.

I still prefer vegetable shortening for pancakes and french toast (the kind properly made be dipping bread in egg batter and frying it, not pouring egg batter on bread and baking it, which isn't toast. Should be called, I dunno, french bake.)

After dinner entertainment (OT)-"The Dirty Dozen" with Lee Marvin-which I have never seen before. Last night's movie was "The Great Escape" (which everybody but FenSon had seen before) so the recurring theme must be escaping from escaping from Nazi or having missions against them.

Fen, related trivia. Lee Marvin was shot in the a**, and foot, at Saipan (Marine).

And the plot of The Dirty Dozen has sort of a basis in real history. It wasn't a commando raid, but there was a massive air attack on a chateau just inland from the British section of the Normandy landing areas on June 9, targeting the leadership of the German armored units in the area.

Radio traffic analysis + codebreaking had revealed it as the armored HQ. Most of the officers were killed, and an armored counter-attack planned for the next day was cancelled.

Once met a P-47 pilot who was in one of the Luftstalags near that one, there was a group of them. There's a pretty good "making of" documentary about the movie on UToob, and how the director sought to maximize authenticity where possible. Technical advisor was a survivor of the whole episode.

405 The way I heard it, Coconut oil was used for movie theater popcorn because it was stable, in the sense they could pop up a crapload of corn on a single day, and then re-heat the popped corn for a week or so. I don't believe it has a superior flavor as such.

For popping I use bacon grease quite a bit. Tastes fine, doesn't have a bacon flavor particularly. Just good to save on cooking oil (or butter).

LOL. No. My denomination allows drinking but it discourages excess.

It's a small word. I went out to the local restaurant/bar to have a drink about week and half ago and some guy who was there-and whom I didn't know personally (He and local retired guys jaw about politics (they are conservative at the local deli by the church I serve)- saw me because my parishioner told me today, "Don saw you and your husband having a drink. Congregant didn't care. He has a beer every so often. I said "It's a good thing I didn't do anything really embarrassing when your friend saw me, Ray"

421 401 Speaking of true WWII escape stories, I once saw a documentary on TV
about some WWII pilot POWs being held in a mountain top castle. They
found a glider kit in the castle, built the glider in the attic, but
before they could use the glider to escape they were moved or the war
ended or something. Years later a couple of the pilots went back to the
castle with the documentary makers, and the glider was still there,
undiscovered, in the attic.

I saw that, great movie.

424 There is a big difference in the cod loin versus regular cod fillets. It is a thick solid piece and needs to be baked versus fried like fish and chips. It is closer to Monkfish than anything else.

427 OT (well, on-topic for POW topic), there's an interesting documentary on UToob about the POW camp at Concordia, KS. Many of the issues there were similar to what was seen with German POWs generally - the hard-core becoming a danger to most of them, and eventually being segregated. And the cordial easygoing relations with locals, for whom they worked as farm labor. And the post-war marriages.

Quite good for anyone interested in the topic.

428 In my haul from Spice House (the non-cray Penzi's) I included "Gateway to the North" just for the weirdity -- it's a maple and garlic blend they claim is good for pork, baked beans, and sweet potatoes.


Since I'm making a meatloaf that includes maple flavored bacon, I added some to the mix. I will report back when it's cooked.

Anybody used this before? Maple sugar, brown sugar, salt, garlic, pepper, onion.

430 So, here's my clergy and drinking story. Used to be the denomination had a strong stand against drinking. We still have grape juice at communion. Anyway, one of the previous pastors-over 30 years ago paid a visit to this guy in my congregation and pastor fell asleep in the chair. Congregant and his dad piled empty beer cans all over and around the pastor and took a picture. Did I mention that this congregant is 89 years old-a Korean vet and has a mischevious side. I laughed. That might have been male humor. That pastor was male. Congregant probably wouldn't have piled beer cans around me.

"The chief of the embattled Capitol Police department stepped down from his post on Friday, days earlier than he said he would following a deadly breach of the Capitol complex by a mob supporting President Trump.

Chief Steven Sund had said Thursday that his resignation would be effective Jan. 16, hours after Pelosi publicly called on him to step down.

But Assistant Chief Yogananda D. Pittman took control of the agency on Friday, according to the agency's website. A Capitol Police officer since 2001, she was one of the first Black female supervisors to become a captain."

My grandparents used to keep bacon fat in a coffee can on the middle of their stove. Cook bacon or sausage and drain the fat into the can. Need some fat? Scoop some out.

But they raised their family during the Great Depression, when food was harder to come by and nothing was wasted.

483 Last time I was in Germany, tearing through, or rater up, the countryside we would stop in a small town grocery and stock up on sausage, bread and beer in those flip to bottles. Every little town had their own brewery. Best beer in the world. Unpasteurized.
Funny story about the flip top beers. One morning the Battalion Sgt Major stopped by our tent and sat on my drivers bunk. He reached under the bunk, picked up a bottle, flipped the lid and took a big drink. He re-sealed the bottle, put it back under the bunk, and exited the tent. Turns out my driver would pee in the bottles at night rather than go outside in the cold. It was never mentioned.
