Shrimp & Grits with a Salad

I thought I would give this one another try, but cooking the grits my way (not the way that guy from Boston does it).

I decided to have this with my last bottle of the Cellar Society – WP1 from Wolves & People.


Galbi Short Ribs and Thai Salad

Another Summer dish that I’m just getting around to in December. You can find the recipes here (although I’ve been using flanken ribs and Johanna Wares dressing instead).

To drink, I went with a bottle of Bellwether from Breakside – a gin barrel witbeir with kaffir lime leaves.

Thai Mussels with Dồi Xá Chiên Tây Hồ Sausage, Asian Slaw and Sticky Rice

I usually do the Thai Mussels in the summer, but I couldn’t find the Olympic Provisions / Pok Pok Sai Ua Sausage. I eventually went the Olympic Provisions near where I work, and they told me that they stopped making it. But just recently, I found some of the Dồi Xá Chiên Tây Hồ Sausage that I used to use for this dish.

I went with a bottle of Special Herbs – an ale brewed with lemongrass, sweet and bitter orange peels, hyssop and Sichuan peppercorns then aged in Ransom Old Tom Gin Barrels, Fantasia casks and a brandy cask – from Upright.
