Scouse

Scouse by Colin Callan

Scouse was brought to Liverpool by Northern European sailors, it was originally called Labskause or lobskause. This was finally shortened to Skause and over time the spelling changed to the more Anglicised version we know and love today, Scouse. Interesting Note: The Danish name is "skipper labskovs". In Swedish, it's "kallops".…

Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew

Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew by John Spottiswood

This is the incredible, densely flavored beef stew that I enjoyed so much at a Georgian restaurant in St. Petersburg, Russia. I've been searching for this, and finally I nailed it. I had this served in a sizzling cast iron pan in Russia, and while I didn't serve it that way to my dinner guests last night, it tasted just as good.…

Crockpot Carne Adovada Recipe

Crockpot Carne Adovada Recipe by John Spottiswood

We had this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic. The complexity of flavors - sweet, salty, spicy, and savory - is really amazing. It's better than 99% of the dishes I've ever been served in a mexican restaurant. I loved the carne adovada I had in Santa Fe, but I honestly don't remember any that matched this. If you try this…

Malaysian Pork Stew with Garnishes

Malaysian Pork Stew with Garnishes by John Spottiswood

This recipe, which is adapted from the New York Times Cookbook, is just outstanding. It has a great combination of flavors that everyone in our family loved. These cuts of pork are so inexpensive, that this is a very economical meal despite the exotic flavors. The garnishes add another dimension, so don't skimp on them! We served…

Mediterranean Lamb Stew with tomato, mushroom and eggplant (Kokkinisto)

Mediterranean Lamb Stew with tomato, mushroom and eggplant (Kokkinisto) by John Spottiswood

I used to order a delicious lamb stew at the New Kappadokia restaurant in Redwood City, California. Then I had a not quite but close to equally delicious stew at a Greek restaurant in Palo Alto that was called Kokkinisto. I pieced this recipe together…

Chahohbili - Georgian Chicken Stew

Chahohbili - Georgian Chicken Stew by John Spottiswood

This is another dish that I had while in Russia, and it's popular throughout the former Soviet Union. This might be the most commonly made Georgian dish. I'm a big fan of the flavors. I served it over rice, but it would go nicely with pasta or crusty bread too. To me, this isn't as remarkable as the Georgian beef stew that I…

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans by Amos Miller

There are two ways to go here: smoked meats (sausage, rib tips, neck bones, ham, country bacon), OR pickled meat. Either way, you'll obtain a rich flavor profile and a satisfying meal. One, warm, soft, and smokey; one tangy, slightly sharp, sort of barbeque-y, but it's always PORK and beans in the end.. My culinary mentor, whom I…

Pork Goulash

Pork Goulash by John Spottiswood

This recipe sounds common, but it originates from the Boston Ritz Carlton where it was one of their three signature dishes for a long time. Once you taste it, you'll understand why such a common sounding dish could fare so well at the Ritz. It's awesome! It was captured by James Villas in one of my all-time favorite…

Pickled cabbage rolls with tomato sauce

Pickled cabbage rolls with tomato sauce by Gourmandelle LifestyleBlog

I love pickled veggies, and cabbage is one of my favorites! Cabbage rolls will always remind me of my carnivore times, when I used to it them stuffed with pork forcemeat every winter. It is a traditional dish you see...but I no longer fall prey to temptation! Now I eat these goodies stuffed with marinated mushrooms, sautéed onions and…

Pork, Sweet Potato and Poblano Stew

Pork, Sweet Potato and Poblano Stew by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one on Simply Recipes, and it is really delicious. I doubled the onion, garlic, poblano, cumin and sauce from her recipe, and quadrupled the sweet potato. The result was a delicious, juicy stew that had a nice balance of vegetables and meat. I'm sure the original recipe is great too, but I'd highly…

Segedinsky Goulash v2

Segedinsky Goulash v2 by Spicie Foodie

My second installment of goulash versions is Segedinsky Goulash. It is a goulash made with pork and sauerkraut( sour cabbage) as the main ingredients and served with knedliky. This goulash doesn't seem to be as popular as other versions. If I remember correctly we have found it only in 1 restaurant. But my husband first discovered it…
