I love loads of cooked kale to eat with mashed potatoes and good gravy and a big Dutch Rookworst to go with it.
Never heard of it being used in sausages though!

Well live and learn boys. On page 84 of Elias Cairo's recent book, Olympia Provisions there is a wonderful recipe for Italian Sausage with Lacinato Kale. The author writes that "this recipe is ideal for anyone who grows huge amounts of kale in the garden and is trying hard not to waste it". Sounds like it was prepared just for you BB! :lol: Essentially, it is the Olympia Provisions recipe for Italian sausage with the addition of braised kale, made with garlic, red pepper flakes, olive oil, salt and water. I might even give it a shot myself since my wife never tires of telling me how healthy it is. She continuously feeds me kale chips and adds prodigious amounts of it to salads. :shock: If I'm going to eat it, it might be better in a sausage than a salad.

It would be improper for me to scan and post the recipe here, but if anyone wants it, PM me with your email I will send to you for study and research purposes. :grin: :wink:

France! I haven't spoken French in over 40 years. Sadly I doubt its the same as riding a bike. That would be a great trip though.

I saw where Ruhlman will be teaching a class in Florida sometime in the near future.

I experienced the whole gauntlet today from shelf stable to extremely perishable. Venison Pasturma, cheddar, venison sausage, pate and venison tartare. Most unique meal I've had in some time and good at that.

Wow that sure looks good. :mrgreen:

I can only eat steak or venison tartar when the wife isn't looking, that raw egg would be the kiss of death.

All looks great BB, and it's been while since I've had steak tartare. But never made from venison. And Bob, the raw egg is a must! BB is doing it the correct way. :lol:

This what I pulled together for last night's happy hour to go with a nice McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Imagel
Venison sausage, fennel/orange salami, peppery salami, spaniata romana and culatello.
