Wicked Jalapeno Laced Cornbread

Wicked Jalapeno Laced Cornbread

  thekitchenman Cornbread; I was in Louisiana on a quest to learn more about Blackened Skillet Cooking. I went to several New Orleans restaurants including K-Paul’s and well known The Commandors Palace. I loved Chef Paul’s cast iron collection in which he had a story about each of them. Paul Prudhomme first gave me the version of real corn bread the way it should be made with pork belly bacon fat, unpasteurized buttermilk and duck eggs made in a well seasoned cast iron skillet. It sure was a tasty version. I began to make this recipe by the fire for shore...

Grill Roasted Hakurei Turnip and Radish ...

  Got Your Greens is the man to see at the White Rock true farmers market about some serious greens. I was shown a very tasty white Hakurei Turnip. Also know as White Globe or Tokyo turnips.

They are not spicy and bitter like the standard purple top turnips. In fact after your first bite you will start adding Hakurei Turnips raw on a salad plate and your vegan fibre diet! The greens are also very much edible,...

Stuffed and Rolled Spare Ribs

Dad’s Rolled and Stuffed Ribs Breslau Hotel Style. Procedure: I learned how to do this recipe blindfolded before I was 15. My dad was in charge of some large Oktoberfest feedings at the Pennsylvania Kitchen and Rolled Ribs and Pig Tails were made by the thousands. At the old Breslau Hotel buffet it would be normal to do 500 portions on a Friday Night. Once you have 4 split racks of side ribs or baby back ribs depending on your budget. In my opinion the side ribs taste the best because of the fat seams and cartilage tissue adding more flavours when fully cooked. The...
