183. Georgian Pork Stew p.485

183. Georgian Pork Stew p.485

The recipe
The Georgian Salsa called ajika, which I blogged about last time totally blew me away. This pork stew uses a lot of the same flavours, and integrates the ajika as an important ingredient, so predictably, I like it a lot. The stew uses some unusual ingredients including summer savory, corriander seeds, fenugreek, and dried [...]

136. Mushroom Barley Soup p.113

136. Mushroom Barley Soup p.113

The recipe
This soup suffers from a serious branding issue. If it had been billed as barely soupy barley stew, with extra barley, some carrots, and hardly any mushrooms at all, I would have known what I was getting into. The blurb for the recipe talks about all the contrasting mushroom flavours and blah blah blah, [...]

98. Chicken Fricassee p.372

98. Chicken Fricassee p.372

No recipe this time.
This was a fairly successful and simple recipe. It’s real comfort food, chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce served with noodles. Like most comfort food it’s fatty and a bit bland. The preparation was as simple as you could wish for. Break a chicken down into serving size pieces, and brown them [...]

84. Persian-Syle Chicken with Walnut, Onion, and Pomegranite Sauce (Fesenjan) p.372

84. Persian-Syle Chicken with Walnut, Onion, and Pomegranite Sauce (Fesenjan) p.372

No recipe for this one.
This is a quick chicken stew, made with pomegranate, onions, walnuts, cinnamon, tomato, lemon juice, and molasses. That’s a lot of big bold individualistic flavours in one dish. Apparently this dish is traditionally made with duck instead of chicken. There may have been a very good reason for that. Duck has [...]

12. Lamb Tagine With Prunes Apricots and Vegetables p. 510

12. Lamb Tagine With Prunes Apricots and Vegetables p. 510

the recipe
I’m not the hugest fan of meats in sweet sauces, and this certainly was sweet. Between the dried prunes, apricots, squash, sweet potato and honey it came close to cloying. There was a huge amount going on here, lamb isn’t a subtle flavour to begin with, and the all fruits and spices brought it [...]

7. Colombian Chicken, Corn, and Potato Stew p. 370

7. Colombian Chicken, Corn, and Potato Stew p. 370

the recipe
This is a stew is thick and rich. I made it in the middle of July. What was I thinking? It may have gone something like:
me: I feel like chicken.
ME: But it’s hot out, and your apartment is already 35 degrees.
me: Don’t people in hot countries eat chicken?
ME: You’re right, it’s hot in Columbia… [...]
