*In cooperation with Barefoot Wine* Today I take you with my recipe Haggis Scotch Eggs and with Barefoot Wine to London. Haggis Scotch Eggs was the starter at 67 Pall Mall, and I liked it so much that I had to prepare it myself. The recipe for the Piccalilli, an Indian pickle, is also coming soon. Haggis Scotch Eggs are soft-boiled eggs surrounded by a layer of haggis and a crispy coating of panko and breadcrumbs. When you cut them, the egg yolk runs all over the plate, so mouth-watering. Haggis is the national dish of Scotland and consists of various offal of sheep, which are chopped finely and formed into a sausage. You can buy it ready-made, and the flavor is similar to a liver paste, and you can buy it ready-made. It goes well with the Barefoot Wine Chardonnay, which is delightfully fruity. A perfect combination!
My today’s recipe chicken liver in pomegranate jus with quince rings sweet potato puree and Dark Horse Wine is a real delicacy and could be an old oriental dish from the house of the Sultan. My pan-fried chicken liver is crispy on the outside and juicy rosy on the inside. It has a creamy texture and tastes simply delicious when combined with sweet quince caramelized in quince juice and honey and a creamy sweet potato purée. The crispy baked sage and the strong sweet and sour pomegranate jus, give the dish a unique flavor explosion! A perfect match is a strong red wine and in this case, a dry Zinfandel from Dark Horse goes perfectly with it.
*Ad in cooperation with Rheinhessenwein e.V. and Gourmet Connection* I was so excited as the invitation of Rheinhessenwein and Gourmet Connection for the “Rhoihessian Cooking duel” arrived. Last year I was already invited and unfortunately could not participate. I´m so grateful that I was asked again this year. As the day of the Cooking contest got closer, I became more and more excited. I have never participated in such a cooking battle and this contest will be even filmed. Am I up to it at all, do I manage to cook the dish of a chef without any recipe and even stay within the given time of 90 minutes?
