uncle john’s dinner

In guest on February 20, 2011 at 2:13 pm

my uncle john is amazing in a number of ways, not the least of which as a cook. i’ve been bugging him for years to do a guest blog, and now you can see why:

that’s seafood gumbo (he uses homemade “dashi” – seaweed and bonito shavings – for gumbo stock base) and soft cornbread made with brown sugar and apple flavored maple syrup.

and it’s followed by three cheeses, two from woodcock farms in londonderry, VT, called timberdoodle and humble pie (the cheese, not the sheep. i asked).  the third is an italian blend of sheep, cow and goat called cravanzina.  served with more cornbread and dried strawberries.

someday i will live close enough to pop over for dinner…
