This Week In Charcuterie News: Trace Arnold,Smokey's 5 FT Hotdog,Pink's Chili,Brooklyn Sausage King

Win some lose some. I've been training a chef, who's a bacon making novice, on the finer points of curing meats. He got his signals crossed and smoked 20lbs of pork belly without washing it and allowing it to air dry. The resulting meat is a study in salt.

How To Properly Cook Louisiana Sweet Corn With Cow's Butter And Heavy Cream

While not as relentlessly feted as Creole tomatoes, Louisiana sweet corn also deserves a place in any self respecting southern cook's weathered old Kelvinator fridge. While neanderthals like to gnaw the kernels straight off the cob, sometimes without even passing the ears over a flame, we prefer ours scraped and cooked.

12 Kastleburgers For Five Bucks At Tastee Donuts

Back in the 80s, some Tastee Donuts franchisees rebelled against having to pay extra licensing fees to the mothership on Kastleburger sales. After all, they reckoned that any burger profits were covered under "related products" in the original contracts.

The case wound its way through court before the plaintiffs were finally ordered to pony up and quit bellyaching. And the legend of the Kastleburger carried on. To some a blatant ripoff of White Castle, the Kastleburger is a tiny patty on a tiny bun with mustard, onions and pickles as garnish.

They also happen to be delicious, and comparable to that other southern delicacy: the Krystal burger. Tomorrow, July 10th 2014, Tastee Donuts is rolling back the prices by offering a dozen of these sandwiches for $5.

       

A Pork Butcher Plies His Trade In Istanbul Plus A Recipe For Turkish Style Pork Ribs

Pork butcheries used to dot the landscape of Istanbul, Turkey. I've been fortunate to eat my way across the barbecue stalls and restaurants of the city, and cuts of pig have grown increasingly difficult to score over the years.

Istanbullus (Istanbul residents), famously tolerant, may or may not have frequented the kasaps (butchers) that specialized in pork, but they didn't care if their fellow swine-loving Turks did.

If you own an old LP by Boozoo Chavis, Clifton Chenier, Tommy McLain or the Balfa Brothers, look at the marque on the back. If it reads Swallow, Jin, Maison de Soul, or Kom-a-day you owe a debt to Mr Soileau as these are his record labels.

What are purple hull peas? They are reminiscent of blackeyes but more delicate. At this time of year in East Texas near the Louisiana line they are abundant and regularly carried in country grocery stores as well as by vendors at area flea markets.

The Center Of The Pho Universe Is New Orleans Louisiana

"There is no love sincerer than the love of food," George Bernard Shaw

New Orleanians love food like no other people on earth. Texans love barbecue. Alabamians love biscuits and Kentuckians love fried chicken, but at the end of the day not one state's residents can hold a candle to the people of Louisiana.

We cook food. We eat food. We talk about food. We write about food. We do all four, and often at the exact same time...and we do it while we're planning our next meal, jaws working furiously all the while.

We are the most food-obsessed group of people on God's green earth. This weekend one of Louisiana's great obsessions takes center stage as Saint Agnes Le Thi Thanh Church hosts the 2014 Pho Festival in Marrero, a suburb of New Orleans.

Expect steaming cauldrons of pho hovered over by little old Vietnamese grannies who've spent their lives devoted to conjuring the finest versions of this elixir known to man.

We would not miss it for the world.

Legal Raw Milk Rejected By Louisiana Senate Committee

My family grew up drinking raw milk as did most of the farm families of the Cumberland Highlands region of Southeastern Kentucky.

We would go through a minimum of one gallon per day; a good milk cow was crucial to the economics of our farm.

Even back then, milk was expensive, and a good way to mitigate the cost was to turn a Guernsey cow loose in one of our pastures then coax her into a stall each morning and milk her.

Tons more sours from plenty other breweries but we can attest to these two beers. 5pm
