Making Cheese...  Head Cheese Making Cheese... Head Cheese By An Offal Experiment 02/11/13 23:06 It's all fun and games until you get splashed with pig skin juice. That phrase basically sums up my experience making head cheese, my sweaty, grease-covered, finger burning experience. As people who read my blog know, I am all for long drawn out food experiences....
Oyster Obsession Part 3: Liquor Oyster Obsession Part 3: Liquor By An Offal Experiment 01/29/13 03:58 For the finale oyster post, we are exploring the liquor - that lovely salty bath that surrounds the meat, the essence of the ocean. As I removed the meat for the po' boys I drained the liquor into a separate bowl. It was destined for Korea's national dish,...
Oyster Obsession Part 2: Meat Oyster Obsession Part 2: Meat By An Offal Experiment 01/24/13 05:07 For the next stop on my oyster obsession journey, I delved into the shell. While the oyster meat is delicious raw, a deep fried oyster is possibly the next best thing. And this recipe is utterly delicious. As I trolled my new Martha cookbook and Epicurious...
Oyster Obsession Part 1: Raw Oyster Obsession Part 1: Raw By An Offal Experiment 01/20/13 05:07 A couple of weeks ago, I ate oysters for the first time in probably ten years. For some reason, I was of the firm opinion that they weren't anything special. Well that opinion changed with a visit to Merchant's Oyster Bar on the Drive where I enjoyed four...
Orange and Flower Water Jam plus a #Giveaway Orange and Flower Water Jam plus a #Giveaway By An Offal Experiment 01/11/13 01:17 When you like to cook, your family soon latches on and starts giving you cooking related presents. Personally I love it and during Christmas I majorly scored with two amazing cookbooks given to me by my brother and sister. I'm am going to review a recipe...
Broccoli Salad with Hazelnut Mayonaise Broccoli Salad with Hazelnut Mayonaise By An Offal Experiment 01/04/13 05:31 December 29th was the final Christmas feast of 2012 hosted by my cousin Sarah. Whew! Another eating season over and this last meal was a great way to finish it off. My sister turned veggie this year and my Uncle and Aunt are also veggie so Sarah decided...
Culatello or the King of Prosciutto Culatello or the King of Prosciutto By An Offal Experiment 12/31/12 15:34 If culatello is the king of prosciutto, what is the queen? This was the first question that struck me as I started to read and learn about culatello. After just a little thinking and reading, the answer became obvious: Jamon Iberico de Bellota. A Spanish...
Epic Christmas Eve Brunch 2012 Epic Christmas Eve Brunch 2012 By An Offal Experiment 12/26/12 15:40 Every year I host a Christmas Eve Brunch in my little apartment for a big group of mostly family with a few friends. The numbers often get up into the late teens, early twenties so it is definitely a packed house. My favorite part of this tradition (now...
Making Queso Blanco Making Queso Blanco By An Offal Experiment 12/21/12 15:44 One thing I really wanted to try was making fresh cheese like I ate in Ecuador. While it's probably a pale comparison (I don't have a cow outside my door nor a woman whose been making it since childhood), it seems like a relatively easy process. As well,...
Gingerbread House Cupcakes Gingerbread House Cupcakes By An Offal Experiment 12/19/12 05:14 I was desperate to make a gingerbread house this year. Probably because last Christmas I took part in a gingerbread competition (we did an Occupy the North Pole theme) and the competition this year was canceled! What a let down! So I decided to go solo...
Cambozola-Stuffed, Bacon-Wrapped Wild Black Dates Cambozola-Stuffed, Bacon-Wrapped Wild Black Dates By An Offal Experiment 12/15/12 03:49 Aka the perfect holiday appetizer. So how did I find these little beauties? I think I've mentioned before that I started a cleaning company to pay for school. I was at a client's house the other morning and we got to chatting. Both being food lovers, we...
Chicken Foot Soup Chicken Foot Soup By An Offal Experiment 12/15/12 02:06 When I returned home to Vancouver from Ecuador, fall was in full swing. As those who live on the Northern Wet Coast know, this means rain and chilliness. I don't mind either because they inspire cooking and nesting - two of my favorite activities. I was...
Christmas Gifts: Whole Wheat Christmas Crackers Christmas Gifts: Whole Wheat Christmas Crackers By An Offal Experiment 12/08/12 19:29 Christmas cookies are a traditional holiday party gift. They're great! Who doesn't want beautifully decorated cookies handmade by a friend? But what about handmade crackers? They're kind've even a better holiday party gift. Most holiday parties involve...
Vanilla-Infused Sour Orange Juice Vanilla-Infused Sour Orange Juice By An Offal Experiment 12/05/12 16:18 In my post on the delicious fruits and juices of Canoa (and Ecuador in general), I mentioned my favorite, a juice I considered Paradise in a Glass. A juice that actually made me want to make juice once I returned from my trip (please note I am not a juice...
Eating in Quito: Part 2 Eating in Quito: Part 2 By An Offal Experiment 12/03/12 01:28 My trip back to Quito involved another harrowing journey on the bus. This time going up a mountain. As is obvious I survived the trip, much to my relief. With three days in Quito until flying home, I decided to really dive into the food culture. This desire...
The Food of Canoa The Food of Canoa By An Offal Experiment 12/01/12 02:28 A description of my trip to the farm in Canoa would not be complete without describing the food that Mami made. As part of the cost of staying at the farm, I was provided with three meals a day, eaten with the family. Normally I cook for myself so it was...
Making Coffee: Roasting, Grinding, Drinking Making Coffee: Roasting, Grinding, Drinking By An Offal Experiment 11/28/12 01:28 I am a coffee fanatic. Some would call me an addict. I am known to not want to interact with the world until I've had my two morning coffees. An appreciation for a good cup of coffee goes hand in hand with my addiction and so the chance to roast and grind...
Making Chocolate: From Bean to Ball Making Chocolate: From Bean to Ball By An Offal Experiment 11/25/12 01:26 One of the big draws for me when deciding to work on the farm was that they grew chocolate. The website mentioned the possibility of learning to process chocolate and that sold me. As people who read my blog know, I love to get down to the nitty, gritty...
The Frutas (y Jugos) of Canoa The Frutas (y Jugos) of Canoa By An Offal Experiment 11/22/12 00:19 The journey from Quito to Canoa was harrowing. For those who haven't been to Ecuador, the drivers are pretty crazy. They drive fast and the rules of the road are taken as more of a guideline than anything else. For example, you really only need to stop...
Eating in Quito: Part 1 Eating in Quito: Part 1 By An Offal Experiment 11/19/12 23:38 So my trip to Ecuador started off in the capital city of Quito. Quito is in a valley between mountains and is at an elevation of almost 3000 metres. This altitude makes it hard to breathe when you first arrive and forget about walking up hills or stairs...
