The Chef, is an avid fan and actually has this in mind every time he makes gravy. Imagine, after you have finished eating a lovely dinner, slathering butter on a piece of bread and pouring gravy over the bread, then letting it soak into all the nooks and crannies before devouring it.
I watched in amazement last night as my brother - Kenneth (still slightly intoxicated from funeraling) made his gravy bread and I thought this was strange as the only place I had ever seen this happen before was at Kurt & Dia's house (in the US).
I even googled Gravy Bread last night to see exactly who started it all. Nothing! I cannot find out where this idea originated from but apparently it is a favourite on both sides of the pond!
Needless to say it was shamelessly washed down with some of the black stuff and whiskey chaser! Finger lickin good, he said!
Before I sign off for this evening, I should warn you the Chef spent sometime today talking about Rondo's stuffed cabbage rolls (oh, God remember that??) and peppermint bark chocolate fudge.
I will have the recipies posted as soon as he gets to it!
That is all the WiseWords I have for today,
