Culinary tour around the world – Corn Bread, Creole Rosted lamb, Creole black beans

sooooo..this is it!
we are back almost were we started.
I must thank my bloggeraid friend Joan for this wonderful tour.
I’ve learned so much, it has been very stimulating..
visting and tasing food from countries I only read about..
just think about mongolia…very strange, very interesting, very strong.
and I’m sure my family will miss all the strange experiments…
but I must say that they have been great!!
as a matter of fact I had some difficulties with this stop in the deep south…
I asked niki (son n°2)who was in San Diego 2 weeks, some years ago..
I asked gokki (dougther n°3) who was in Florida one month 10 years ago…
“what do you eat in the deep south?”
they answered french fries and hamburgers!!
It can’t be! :)))
so fortunately Joan posted a very illiuminated post on Sunday..
wow, that really helped!!
then I stopped by at Rachel’s and saw a recipe site that could also help me.. arrived 2 new guinee pigs to try everything out..
so here I am…
creole dinner!! :)))

and do you know what??? we all really liked it!

oh yeah! :)))
let the lamb marinate all the night, it helps cooking.
I did the black beans without sausage and rice…(sofi is vegetarian, remember ? :))
I suggest to make the rice the day before and let rest over nigt, it get’s even better!
I used a pressure cooker (2 hours very slowly, starting from dry beans)
if you use the crockpot, i think it is even more tasty!

glenn’s Southern Corn bread

here I some difficulties with the I followed my intuition.

haha…the bread turn out to be super! I’m very satisfied :))

I used cream of tartar instead of chemical yeast, I prefer the taste.

(and saturday I was visting a distillery and when I learned that the cream of tartar is nothing else but wine waste…wow..I like even more! :))))

we had a great fun in the distillery…my dear friend Rosa got drunk only from smelling the aquavit! :))) a tip, from my new friend mister carlo….a good grappa is transparent..if it is means that some chemical colour has been added)

sorry Joan..I got out of track. silly me!!

I wish to thank all particpants that have followed joan in this fantastic culinary trip!!

    You found a really good (and different) recipe. Lamb is not something I would have expected but I’m going to try it. Brii, you’ve been a delight throughout. Thank you for your support and companionship.

    Sorry I didn’t visit earlier Brii but I was very busy. You did a great job again and you always make so many lovely recipes.
