Manchester Egg, Cod Tongue Three Ways, Paprikash of Hearts and Livers

Manchester Egg, Cod Tongue Three Ways, Paprikash of Hearts and Livers

So the gang decided to reconvene not too long after the last Offal because most couldn't make the last one, and because we are already 6 months into 2013 and risk falling behind on the old Offal quota.  When the time came, Manchester was gripped by a heatwave, so the full on 5th quarter experience didn't seem too appropriate.  Jock suggested Offal al fresco, and it wasn't the first time he'd tried to gain entry to the venue naked.  Still, some creative menu selection, and the opportunity to try some obscure fish offal for the first time meant this mid-year celebration worked perfectly.  Except for the photo's: with Joby's absence they were a bit shit.

Chefs: Jason and Simon C.

Venue: Jason's

Member's Present: Simon, Jason, Howie, Simon C, Dan, Jock.

Manchester Egg, Red Onion Marmalade, Rocket


Scotland do them well, Manchester do them better.  Just need to think of what a Yorkshire one would contain...

Great recipe is here!




Cod Tongue Three Ways.

Inspired cooking and ingredient sourcing from Simon C whose last appearance on Offal was televised.  Battered, Pan-fried, Pate.  Homemade Tartare, Sauce Vierge.  The debate about what a cod tongue was was never fully resolved.






Paprikash of Lambs Hearts and Livers.

More inspired Recipe's from Mr Fearnley-Whittingstall.  This fiery dish can be found here.







Creme Catalan.

Like creme brûlée but with orange. Sadly we were all out of blood oranges.





Quotes:

I hate Rocket.
You mean you've never snogged a cod?
Do you realise we haven't had any quotes yet? It's down to you Simon. Come on. Be funny...
Knowing Simon it's probably some middle-class wood whittling festival.

I'm a morning person and Rach is an evening person.  I have to assault her on the stairs mid-morning
Have you got to the gay snowman bit?

Excuses: Jon, off to see the Stone Roses
