xxx nibbles

By • January 13, 2011 • 20 Comments



Author Notes: These are adult only nibbles. They are the kind of bite you should only eat with a stiff cocktail. Something with one of the vermouth sisters preferably. Maybe a Manhattan even a Martini but if that is not your thing a good glass of wine will suffice.
Two or three of these, an apertif and a great dinner will make for an extremely satisfying evening. Really the goose fat alone should have its own place and be traded on the precious metals market.

Good choice on the olives, Bro T. But goose liver and prosciutto, I think are already traded as "rare earth" on the commodities market. Everything comes from China these days.

Tom, when you first posted this I thought "I have to find me a goose." Instead, I'm seriously considering a road trip to Indiana. Your food is so enticing!

MrsWheelbarrow you can come for a visit anytime, well, you probably don't want to come right now cause the little ones are still sick, but doing better, nasty flu going around here.

Gorgeous. And lucky me, with a freezer full of duck prosciutto. :-)

Cocktail-wise: I think it would pair really well with a Martinez.

I would have to agree with there but aren't you thinking about a cocktail awfully early on the morning. LOL.

I'm opening a restaurant. I'm never *not* thinking about a cocktail.

That is probably good then. I hope all is going well with the place. I keep seeing some beautiful photos of work that is happening.

I would love to try this! I think kumquats are one of the most underused citrus out there! I love them and buy them whenever I see them. And congrats on your beautiful looking prosciutto. What kind is it?? I made some a couple years ago in school and making it yourself beats anything you're going to find at the store.

When I saw the contest theme, this recipe immediately popped into my head! It's perfect, and I will not be surprised if it ends up as a finalist.
