I know this is supposed to be a blog about (primarily) meat-related food, but this is my favourite thing to eat in pretty much the world. Sour, sweet, soft and crispy. This is my perfect lemon meringue pie recipe, even though I’m sure it’d piss […]

Sausage and beans are one of those famous classic combinations that will always be heard together, even though I’m sure they primary place they appear together are in those weird tins. The French cassoulet, however, is the king of sausage and beans, well meat and beans anyway… What once started as a lowly peasant dish is now a meat feast for everyone, so get involved!

Oh, how I love the crispy deep fried pork that is Tonkatsu – one of Japan’s specialities. Tonkatsu is pork cutlet that is breaded, deep-fried and served with mountains of cabbage to take the edge off all the fry! We heard that Tonkatsu Tonki is one of the best places to eat these deep-fried beauties in Tokyo, so we headed down there for our first taste in Japan. Check out where else we ate at in Japan. We also highly recommend Katsukura, where they too know how to whip up a mean tonkatsu.

I don’t even remember how I first learnt about Mexican mole now, it was so long ago, probably from watching something on television. Whatever it was, I’m extremely thankful for it, because this amazing sauce is truly the stuff of dreams, for those who can be bothered to go through the effort that is. This version, mole chipotle, uses the spicy and sour chipotles in adobo sauce which can be found in little tins in the supermarket. In fact, it’s very similar to mole poblano, but I couldn’t get any of those, so here we are.
