  2. Many years ago, I was once taken by French colleagues to a restaurant in Strasbourg where I was served something that looked just like this. I was told that the restaurant and this particular dish were favorites of the German Chancellor and French President who used to meet there to sort out the future of Europe.

    THis could explain a lot...

  4. It would appear that the picture Baydog selected is of the German version, Sülze.

    ...and the umlaut doesn't make it look any better.

    jambon:ham as Sülze:head cheese

  5. Hey- waddya mean, Mojo? You don't think that head cheese looks good? I betcha DRJ would've liked it.

    BTW, just made a variation of knob salad today by roasting said root instead of boiling. I think you'd approve.

  6. You're right, Baydog, he most certainly would have enjoyed it (and probably did)!

    I'm not there yet. To me it looks like Spam's antecedent.

    On the other hand, I am salivating over your roasted variation on our OFD holy dish. More details, or pictures PLEASE!!

  7. BTW, nice show by the Gints this afternoon.

    On to Green Bay, which promises to induce some domestic competitive tension in our home next Sunday, given that I'm married to a cheesehead

    She's out-numbered 3 to 1.

    ... but she screams louder.

  8. Nice. I never knew P was such a football fan. Just put out some Humboldt fog and Morbier and she'll be distracted whilst Jacobs and Bradshaw run rough-shod over the Clay-Magnon linebacker.

  9. P's interest in football appears to be purely a Wisconsin phenomena: the Badgers and the Pack.

    If I wanted to throw gasoline on the fire, I'd serve her brats 'n beer.

  10. Johnsonville brats, no doubt.

  11. And in case you were wondering about the beer part...

    favorite local brew

    When visiting in Madison, this is what you want.

  12. OK, Chitlins in Aspic its still headcheese to me.

  13. I'd love to know why they call it cheese!

    ReplyDelete
  14. What creeps me out is why the call it Head? is that an eye ball I see amongst those entrails?

    ReplyDelete
  15. That's a question, Baydog, to which I'd rather not have the answer.

    Headcheese, toecheese, it's all quite unappetizing to me.

  16. Just as long as they don't call it fromage

    ReplyDelete
  17. Pouvez-nous s'il vous plaît parler de jambon à la place?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ni l'un, ni l'autre.

    Oh crap, now you've got me doing it.

    Calling it fromage de tête will only make it cost more, not taste any better.

  19. And if you're talking pate de campagne...

    ... now I'm interested. Avec de la moutarde!

  20. Pepe la Pew said, "la headcheese looks disgusting!"
