The BFM wants to look at fusion cuisine. This seems to be a “big buzz style” in restaurants everywhere. What is fusion? The definition is the process or result of joining two or more things together to form a single entity.
In the case of food it is to mix different styles of cooking and flavours. I want to demonstrate that with a simple meal. It will be sausage,egg,beans,noodles and black pudding using local produce.
I used Paul Rankin Leek and pork sausages and pan fried them. I cooked 5 Skea eggs and made scrambled eggs using ghee. The noodles were Chinese egg noodles which were added to lightly fried (sesame oil) local carrots,asparagus,onion and Annaghmore mushrooms. Beans good old Heinz. The black pudding was Dohertys which I grated (200g) and fried off in Irish rapeseed oil with one chopped onion and white Annaghmore mushrooms.I flavoured this with ginger, garlic, garam masala, salt, pepper and lemon juice. I will add chilli later,as kids will eat this.
So there you go my definition of fusion using local and far ingredients cooked in an exotic way to make for more interesting and tasty food!!!
Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Ciao for now
