Beaujoulais wine, fois gras with toast, and caviar d'aubergine. Just snacks, made for a perfect meal. :D

you need more game. if you'd had each of those things pureed, set with gel, slow-dried and then cut into a paisley shape and plated with a skidmark of sauce, then that would be worth posting. foo.gif
(seriously, sounds absolutely delicious and frighteningly normal).

Swiss chard/tamarinde/chickpea stew the past few days (yesterday I added some chorizo, also very good). Will cook some shakshuka now.

^No bread, but added some feta in the end. Very good.

Mushroom risotto with Shiitake and Swiss Browns made the stock today, with a mixed green salad and lemon delicious pudding with whipped cream for desert. Washing the risotto down with a Tasmanian Stoney Rise Pinot Noir and a bottle of Ninth Island in case the football gets interesting.

You were so grossed out you could only eat the guacamole off the top with your fork. And then they replaced your mealworm tacos with anchovy tacos, but they made you keep your dirty fork.

They were maguey worm tacos, then minnow tacos. Both are at least relatively popular in Mexico, and I trusted the restaurant I was at wouldn't put them on the menu if they weren't good. Neither had very much flavor honestly, they were both fried. I liked the minnows better. And I was eating at tacos at a bar, I didn't really care about replacing the silverware between courses.

I consider myself an adventurous eater and I think the rationale for eating bugs is sound (and I hope it catches on in the U.S.). But I have a real aversion to anything that resembles mealworms. Not sure I could bring myself to try the maguey worm tacos.

Last night I went out and had some amazing $6 laksa from the smallest hole in the wall. It was made of a rich, luxurious curry broth, egg noodles and filled with a hard boiled egg, chicken thigh pieces, beef brisket, bean sprouts, fish cakes, prawns and all sorts of other goodies. By far the best noodle soup in town. Thank goodness for friend-of-a-friend food references, right?
