If you like food from all over the world, my wife Sabine has started a blog where she write about food, food with flavor from all over the world. Do her a favor and check out her Foodie Notes blog.
2 kg Beef short ribs
200 ml Soy sauce
50 ml Rice wine vinegar
1 Onion, peeled and finely grated
1 Asian pear, peeled and finely grated
4 Tablespoon minced garlic
2 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 Teaspoon ground black pepper
250 ml Water
200 g Brown sugar
We actually managed to find some clams at a decent price, so here comes the recipie for San Francsco style Clam Chowder. Well, it probably really is a Boston Clam Chowder but with a San Francisco twist (a sourdough bread bowl).
200 g Canned clams, cooked and chopped (dry weight) 250 g Bacon, diced 300 g Potatoes, diced 1 L Milk 2 Onions, diced 1 Bayleaf Salt/Pepper
In the US we loved to buy Salt and Pepper chips (krinkle cut) from Kettle Foods. We often bought them at Whole Foods if we were going to have a nice “beer and chips” before dinner or just hang in front of the TV in the evening.
Vongole, or clams, in glass cost more than beef tenderloin, per kg, so I’m not sure we’ll buy these .. at least not to make clam chowder!
For all your Danish expats who miss your rye bread and do not find any rye sourdough starter – or for others who just would like an easy ryebread recipie.
700 g Rye flour 100 g Pumpkin seeds 100 g Sunflower seeds 1 tsp Salt 1 bottle Beer, lukewarm 250 ml Buttermilk 250 ml Water, lukewarm 1 envelope
(~2 1/4 tsp)
Yeast Sugar to bloom the yeast Oatmeal for decoration
Nearly everybody who knows Sabine and me also knows that food means a lot to us. We like to try different kinds of food, we like to cook food and we probably also talk more about food than most people.
Some have asked us, when you were on the road trip â€“ what did you eat? Could you cook in the van?
After moving to Denmark we have got some food problems!! Yes food problems. It seems almost impossible to get fresh Anaheim (or New Mexico) Chili and Poblano Chili – two of our favorite “vegetables” 😉 .. and canned clams, hard clams, for making Clam Chowder (San Francisco style naturally).
Clams we probably can get fresh (have not tried yet) or maybe in Germany, where the itailan (yes they use them too) food sources are more readily avalible.
