In Frank's kitchen *new set of pictures 18 March 2019*
« on: December 06, 2015, 10:39:17 »
I did some marinated wild boar, a pumpkin soup (Hokkaido) with sweet potatoes, celery and carrots and a fast pesto of ruccola, parmigiano, cashew, fresh garlic and Olive Oil. All very tasty. I also did some preperations for the freezer.

The pesto looks delicious!  Its serving dish looks nice, too, with its Japanese traditional Seigaiha-design pattern.  Is "Hokkaido" the name of this pumpkin?  It is the name of the northern island of Japanese archipelago where I was born...

I know the Geography. Yes, in Germany this Punpkin is named after your Nothern part. We like this pumpkin especially because it is very fine and you can use it as a whole

Frank, strangely the pumpkin named "Hokkaido" is not something commonly seen here in Japan.  Neither I or my mother has seen one.   ::)

Just googled.  The "Hokkaido" pumpkin came actually from Hokkaido.  In the early 90s, a Japanese living in Munich imported the seeds from Hokkaido and planted them with help of an organic farming site there.

Yes, they are very commonly seen in organic markets and as organic food in super markets. They are very tasty, even if you cook then only with a little water, salt, pepper and ginger

Thank you Jørgen. Yes, the boar was very aromatic and tender. Not often can I purchase such a nice piece of meat. It does not taste of swine at all, more like a perfect Roastbeef.

between wiping off excessive salivation and changing bibs, Mongo managed to tell you he loves pesto of all origins and that you have some great food images. Any image that makes you virtually taste the food or crave it - is a darn good image !…..and you have managed a few.

It would be nice if you could manage long distance takeaway.

Nice Frank. I fear that Mongo and I will be fighting for bites of your meal.  FYI- with the addition of a new wine fridge, I have effectively doubled my wine capacity. Next time you're in California you need to explore my collection.

Add my name to Gary and Mongo's fight as well :) .. The boar looks yummy, so as rest of the dishes. We don't see food photography often in NG. Very refreshing and of-course technically noteworthy.

Thank you. Yes, we might meet at Photokina and have a bite and a glass in Bonn. We might dine at a friends place who has more space. I just ask for a little financial support, because these ingredients are really expensive ... and the wine too ...

PS: If time allows we can go buy ingredients together and cook and take photos too...
