Cannibal Toast

Main: Toast Kannibaal
Dessert: Raspberry Sorbet

Toast Kannibaal or Cannibal Toast is a steak tartare served on toast with pickled accompaniments. Couldn’t resist the name to be honest and it is quite a different thing to what we would try in Australia, so I decided to give it a go. Kas and I both really enjoyed it.

Dessert was nice but technically a failure. I made the sorbet to go with Brussels waffles but the day got away from me and did not get the dough ready on time to ferment. Sorbet with vanilla ice cream was the recovery.

Potato cakes from Belarus

Turns out Belarus like potatoes. They even make a potato sausage. Belarus eats more potatoes per head than any other country in the world.

I decided on Draniki with a mushroom filling. Draniki are a potato pancake sometimes stuffed with meat or vegetables sometimes plain. Looking forward to trying out the potato sausage recipe some time in the near future!

Bajan Chicken Salad

Bajan chicken salad with a scotch bonnet and mango dressing.

I went for a lighter meal tonight. Chicken marinated in the Carribean’s favourite spice pimento. The salad was a mix of cucumbers, tomatoes and black beans.

Next up: The world’s potato capital, Belarus.

For this dinner I served:
Bangladeshi fish curry with daikon
Sheem Bhaji
Stuffed Chilli Fritters
Mango Pickle
Coriander Chutney and Naan Bread

Bangladesh (or Bengal, Bangladesh literally means the country of Bengal) is the basis of most Indian food you have eaten in Indian restaurants in Australia. Most Indian food in local restaurants is actually a British version of Bangladeshi cuisine and not actually Indian.

This dinner was a hit. Busting with so many flavours. I love this style of cooking 🙂
