Default Ask the Chef

Do you have a culinary question? Is there a recipe or technique you can not figure out? What the hell is Haggis really? Ask me. I can help. I have been a chef for 11 years and worked in every kitchen you could imagine cooking and making foods from all around the world.

Cheers, Scooterchic

All of us ACO's probably have a mix of things that we like for lunch...

But Im always interested in the category of "food that you can eat with one hand while driving". Especially if it takes less then 10 minutes to fix.

Any ideas from the chef? So far my selection includes the following:

turkey/cheese sandwhich
apples
carrots
cherry tomatoes
cheerios
cans of v8
jerky

???

Well, you can play with different kinds of sandwiches. Turkey, swiss, avocado, bacon. Try making wraps or burritos. I love a tasty romaine, ranch and chicken. Add some fresh tomatoes and I am a happy pup. Also for the winter months you can try soup. "Wait what?! I am driving Scooterchic!?!" Yes yes soup. It is easy to puree up a tasty bisque you can sip while on the road. How about a pancake sandwich for b-fast! Oh yeah thats the stuff.

Here is a simple recipe for a wrap that you can make in about 5 minutes

6 oz Sliced turkey
1 cup Mixed lettuce (whatever salad mix you like, spring, romaine
stuff like that)
1 oz Chopped tomatoes
1 oz Crispy wonton pieces (check for them at the store in the salad
fixin's isle)
1 oz Mayo
1 oz Raspberry dressing
1 each Large Tortilla or sandwich wrap

In a large bowl add the lettuce mix, tomatoes, wonton pieces and Raspberry dressing. Mix till the lettuce is throughly mixed. Warm the tortilla up a bit so it wont break while trying to roll it. Spread the mayo on the bottom of the wrap and add the sliced turkey. Add the salad mix and wrap tight by rolling it into a burrito. I suggest wrapping it again in plastic wrap till you are ready to eat it so it does not spill all over your truck.

Enjoy!

Cheers, Scooterchic

I hate too eat. But with that said, I need a recipe for Cowpot. When I was stationed in Thailand (1973) that was the main dish of choice. Not too mention Rice Bugs and Monkey Ball Soup.

Okay Scooterchef, here is one for you. I went to a traditional Scottish wedding, and the groom had prepared haggis as the main course. He told me that some of the ingredients for his recipe are not legal for sale for human consumption, at least not in Texas, so what is your recipe?

Well, I never made it from scratch but I will look in my families recipes and find one for you. The lungs of the lamb are illegal...... not sure why...

Cheers, Scooterchic

Here's the simple, historical version:

(1) Kill the only animal you can afford to kill (hopefully not losing any breed stock).

(2) Sell every piece of that animal that you can get any money for whatsoever.

(3) Save the stomach, because you can't afford a piece of cloth to boil a pudding in.

(4) Mix a whole bunch of the only grain you can grow in lousy soil (oatmeal) with all the pieces of the animal that you couldn't sell, because you have to feed 10 people on 5 people's worth of food. Put in as much pepper and salt as you can afford, too, because it's gotta help the taste.

(5) Put it in a pan and boil the hell out of it. Now it's haggis.

(6) Call the family together, read some Rabbie Burns, cut up the haggis, and eat and enjoy, and pass the usquebach around if you have any. At least you have four stone walls around you this winter, which is more than about half your countrymen do.

Here's to the Scots: We mastered the skills of surviving "Great Depressions" three hundred years before there was such a thing!

Iím sure it was the lung, and maybe something else. It is basically just sheepís liver and oatmeal cooked in a lung isnít it? I know my buddy had to go to a butcher shop and do some under the table dealing to get the lung.

It really wasnít bad, if you like liver, which I donít.

Well, here's a real historic recipe for you, though I'm sure Scoot will come up with a better, tastier modern one:

Lady Login's Receipt, 1856

Boil a pound of lamb or deer liver together with the heart and lights (lungs) of a sheep. Meantime, toast 2 pounds of dry oatmeal slowly until it is crisp.

When the meat is done, skim it out and reserve the boiling waters in a very large pot. Add more water and putting it onto the heat to boil again. Take the skimmed out meats, drain them a bit, and mince them very fine. Add them to the toasted oatmeal, together with a pound of chopped mutton suet, a large minced onion, and some cayenne, Jamaica, and black pepper with salt. Stir in a pint of stock to make a pudding.

Put the whole into a cleaned sheep or lamb's stomach bag, filling it about half full. Press out the air and sew up either end. Prick the bag all over with a darning needle so it does not burst.

Simmer near boiling for 4 to 5 hours. Serves 12.

Piping the haggis into the dining room on Burns Night (January 25th every year)



The boiled haggis as she is et.



A popular postcard haggis recipe.



See? More than you ever wanted to know.
