The World’s Worst Food Blogger – You Don’t Know…

I once had a wise teacher who liked to say, “You don’t know what you don’t know.”

He of course said it to try and convince know-it-all teenagers that he had something worthwhile to teach them. His point, I now realise, did not just apply to Year 9 English – it is entirely appropriate for all facets of life. The fact is, if you have no experience of something, you just don’t know what you are missing.

…Did I Just Eat Horse?

Japan is a country of culinary delight. Some of them are famous (sushi, for example), while others are wonderful surprises that fill your mouth with unexpected joy (takoyaki springs to mind).

Some surprises are good, but hard for the naïve Western brain to comprehend. Other surprises were… not good. Not good at all. As someone who has now spent the better part of a month sampling the delicacies of this fine country, I can now present to you my list of the Top 5 things I wasn’t expecting to eat in Japan, but did anyway.

My Sunday Photo – The 8 Hour Steak

My Sunday Photo for this week is titled The 8 Hour Steak

The title for this photo pretty well says it all. This excellent scotch fillet (rib eye) spent a glorious eight hours in the oven at just 60 degrees Celsius. I turned the oven up to 120 for the final 10 minutes. The 8 hour steak is an ultimate example of my cooking motto – low and slow.

The result was a perfectly succulent and tender steak inside, with an all over caramelised crust. I also made a chimichurri sauce to go with it, but in true World’s Worst Food Blogger style, we ate all of that before I thought to take a photo.

If you love a good steak, so much so that you are willing to spend a whole day cooking it, then go ahead and give the 8 hour steak a go. I promise the result is worth it, if you get it right!
