coco, this is very interesting southern north american food, cajun is my fave cuisine, what is corn sabayon, sheryl how do you do your mornay sauce ?

I cooked corn in milk and butter, with a dash of salt and pepper. When it was done I blended it and put it though a chinoise. Keep the liquid, toss the corn bits. In a double boiler on low heat, like you would if you made hollondaise, I put in an egg yolk and wisked in a little at a time the milk, butter, corn juice until it made a nice sauce.

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

Those chips are making my mouth water Kou! How I wish they were part of my childhood cooked like that! We had yummy chips as part of fish and chips and my mum occasionally made them (she cut them into slices that ended up as triangles because of the curve of the potatoes).
But nothing we had compares to having them cooked outside in a big pan of olive oil!

ANN blackberrying was part of my childhood too. In fact, when I read your post I thought I must have written about it already, and you were answering! We went to a place far up the Yarra river and picked and ate and swam and picnicked, and then came home when we had jam making the following day, and blackberry pie for dessert.

Southern Food! This again is my spin on some southern classics. I roasted sweet potatoes with beets, fried pork chop with gravy, fried green tomato, with corn sabayon topped with tomato and cucumber salad.

How tasty these would be. I'd love to try them. Thanks for explaining the corn sabayon. I can imagine already how well the tastes would go together!

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

It was my mum who made the blackberry pie User, and I don't know her recipe, but it was delicious.

Kou I love your snails posts, I am fascinated by the memories that are so different from my own childhood. I'm ashamed to say that we would have been disgusted at the very thought!

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

I love snails but they certainly weren't part of my childhood. It would never have occurred to us (or anyone I knew back then) to eat them. I didn't even eat them when I was in France (was their Summer).

You've seen this photo from the French challenge a few months back. I was preparing them for clients.

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

There used to be (maybe still is) a snail farm not far from where I live. These were simply done- garlic and parsley butter (parsley is meant to negate the effects of garlic-breath). These snails came out of a tin (top right of the photo).

Oh, and I eat mussels, too (but hadn't heard of them, let alone ate them when I was a kid).
