Cyprien Katsaris - Beethoven in a New Light
Beethoven - a Chronological Odyssey is a set of six surprising CDs that must count as one of the most original new releases in the Beethoven year. Cyprien Katsaris has gained renown as a Beethoven interpreter not least because he is one of the few pianists to have recorded Liszt’s transcriptions of the symphonies - and also because he has a solo piano version of the Emperor Concerto in his repertoire.

Excellent ! Mouth wateringly spicy ! I can almost smell the pictures. I shan't post a picture of tonight's dinner as we're having hamburgers; with our own  meat mixture though.

Speaking of that stuff, part of due consideration of a healthy diet is how healthily the ingredients have been grown/reared and prepared. One aspect of this is the "food miles" to which so many foodstuffs are subjected today in order that those who can afford them can have almost anything from anywhere at any time of the year; the notion of eating "seasonally" has gone out of the window (although it seems now to be making a return in some places). Where I am, you can buy excellent lamb from the locality and from nearby east Wales - and yes, it sells well - yet you can also buy it from New Zealand; why would anyone want such a product after it's travelled some 18,000km when it can be had from just around the corner? Some products have to be sourced from other countries, of course; you can't grow bananas, decent olives, citrus fruit, coffee and tea, etc., in UK (yet!) and I admit to buying butter only from France even though there's plenty of it made locally here, but that's only because what they make here is decidedly inferior.

Best,

Alistair

Yes, there is an organization around here that you can join to get your weekly groceries, including homegrown meats (which does include lamb), from local and small, family farms/farmers.  It is very seasonal, so I'm not sure exactly what they have going veggie-wise in the winter.  I am not positive the exact timing on colder crops like lettuce, chard, spinach, peas, etc., but I don't think those grow in the dead of winter, despite the fact that they can handle some snow in early Spring and in late Fall.  Anyway, I'd like to look into it, but just haven't done so yet.  I have always enjoyed the idea of my own, huge garden and to fully grow all my own food, but I don't think that's going to happen ... so, other people's farms are the next best thing, I guess :).

hee hee ... this reminds me a little of somebody's photos I saw who was advertising his own meats (and meat mixtures), for which he said "all of our meats are vegetarian" ... haha ... I didn't know what in the world that was supposed to mean at first, until I realized that it meant that the animals who became the meat were vegetarians.  Maybe that's obvious to other people, but it wasn't to me  :P.

Okay, I've already eaten mine ... I have to admit, it was incredible, even meatless (you don't think about it for even a moment) :).  The filling was the cabbage and spinach, the mushrooms and yellow squash, one-third the caramelized onions, one bell pepper and one anahiem chili pepper, freshly chopped cilantro, ricotta cheese, some sour cream, and some pepper jack cheese.

The sauce was the tomatillos, two-thirds the caramelized onions, the rest of the roasted peppers, cumin, chipotle and chili powder, some vegetable stock ... all of that blended.  

Wow. :)  *Invites self over* ;D  They look great, and stuffed with so much stuff.  I could play while you cook--a lush backdrop for your culinary creativity. :)

And I really like your plates. :)

If that's really true, how on earth do you expect to keep your weight down to what it was after the punishing but (at least in weight loss terms) successful exercise régime through which you lately put yourself?!

What was the ravioli filling? Did you make them yourself?

Yeah, I had one for lunch ... they got spicier overnight, but I really like spicy!  At least so long as it's within my toleration level!  Sure, play music!  I have to admit, I am extremely proud of my enchies  ;D!  I had a concept in mind of the flavors I wanted to create, and this is very much what I had imagined, though I hadn't originally thought I was going to put sour cream in them (I forgot there was some in the fridge).  That just completed the flavors in the filling, as it really blended *so* nicely with the chipotle and helped to bring out different flavors ... plus adding a creaminess!  Also, at first I forgot to blend the toasted pumpkin seeds into the sauce, and without them it was pretty good but not quite what I had been hoping for.  But once I remembered the pumpkin seeds it really took on the flavor (and aroma!) of what I was hoping for.  I didn't realize *just* how much those add to the flavor ... now I know!

Tonight I might try some soup, though I'm not real sure what I'm expecting from that ... we'll see!  It will have some chard, turnips, sweet potatoes, some onion ... and we'll see what else.  I have some yellow split peas and some lentils that I might put in there ... hmmm ...

I'm alive on vegetables!!!  I can't help posting photos of the foods I'm making ... but this time it's only two:

Some beginning soup ingredients, sauteing in a little olive oil and spices:

OK, it got really thick with vegetables ... heh ... and there are some yellow split peas and some brown lentils in there.  It was a very quick soup, but it's yummy, and I have this desire to live on it for days  :P.

Yeah, I am kind of in the cooking spirit lately, though I find it tricky time-wise.  I often end up doing little parts of whatever I'm making in little intervals between practice sessions (which is also supposed to be my "exercise" opportunity, as well).  I want to try some other stuff soon.  I've got some millet and couscous around, and would like to do something with those.  

I am embarrassed to admit that I used boxed broth in the soup  :-[.  Like I said, it was a really quick soup!  I had gotten some celery and carrots and I have some bay leaves and was going to make some broth (with onions and garlic, too), but alas, I did not.  In my ideal cooking world, I'd have some homemade broths on-hand in the freezer ...

I guess I can google them, but I don't quite understand what they actually are.  Are they a product of something else that gets processed and formed to look like that, or are they just some vegetable/root that is just cut (and skinned?)?  


I just ate some of the vegetable soup that I made ... oh, it was such the perfect thing at the time, though I could have heated it up a bit more.

yucca it's a starchy tuber, i.e root like a potatoe, yam, etc.  they can be a pain to peel and cut so i opt for the frozen ones, not a 'processed' food in the normally used term just 1 ingredinent, the yucca.  i use the goya mainly for convenience but i sometimes buy the normal ones in the produce market and prep them too. they're great either way.

I saw on TV today that Bernie Madoff is in federal prison in N.C.  They play tennis, bocce, work out, and it's like a college campus with dorms named after colleges, nestle into beds with tvs!  They are living in a prison of luxury!  They drink SODAS at the taxpayers' expense!   I couldn't bear to watch anymore.

Very wise of you, too. Fine ale's all very well for those who enjoy it (just as it's the very opposite for those whose profound distaste for it feels akin to an allergy), but it does little to aid the digestion; a decent wine would be far more sensible.

Since I have no idea what you will be eating on that occasion and since I know nothing of your wine preferences and am no authority on what Tescos stock (why Tescos in particular anyway?), I fear that I am unable to answer your question.
