We are also making Sweetbreads in a Maltaise sauce. Thymus glands are on tap for an appetizer tomorrow. Maltaise is a Hollandaise sauce with blood orange juice and zest. Again, alternative meat, thymus, liver, are not Chef Browns favorite food items. Anything with a membrane that needs to be removed makes him squeamish, which makes us laugh. But he always tells us, "Just because I don't like it, doesn't mean I can't cook the hell out of it."
Maybe I'll learn to cook the hell out of Brussels sprouts.
I just won't eat them.
French cooking term for today:
Brasier (bray zay) To braise: cook a meat in a covered dish in or over gentle heat with a little liquid, usually over a small bed of fine diced vegetables.
