Having a Reuben on rye in New York, the city where the delicious sandwich of layered meat heaped with tangy sauerkraut, creamy sauce and molten Swiss cheese was first concocted is special; having it at Katz’s Deli was just inspirational. That Reuben was so hypnotically good and left a lasting impression on us. I think [...]

When I was researching about artificial meat, I came across the work of Emeritus Professor Jeff Wood at the University of Bristol, a “meat expert” whose research on meat quality involves extensive taste testing of meat. That’s right – scientific research requiring consumption of steak. Is that my dream job? I have a serious bone [...]

My much anticipated followup to the previous post is here. In my last post I introduced The Paddock to Plate project that I and 7 other foodbloggers were participating in, a project designed to increase the appreciation of the process and energy required to get a beef product from paddock to plate. I had been [...]

There are plenty among us that have heard of mock meat or the more “appealingly” named, meat analogue where things like soy protein, wheat or vegetable protein are moulded, flavoured and transformed into the likeness of your everyday meaty goodies. My intriguing local mock meat store sells a mind boggling array of curious meat phonies [...]

The “perfect steak” is an elusive concept that titillates meat lovers around the world and it conjures up a smattering of images that oscillate from the barbeque enthusiast in his humble backyard to top chefs creating carefully temperature controlled slivers of delicate beef art. But before I even embark on the challenge of creating the [...]

The Co-pilot travels more than anyone I know. He travels internationally a few times a year for business, and another few times for pleasure. Not to mention all the domestic travelling he does. Despite all that, he seems to have a never ending supply of annual leave remaining and I have long suspected there is [...]

Not two months ago, the Co-pilot and I went to Thailand for 2 weeks and gorged ourselves on delicious, authentic and cheap Thai food. But from Bangkok to Koh Tao, the street food was the tastiest fare that never failed to plaster satisfied grins on our faces. I was so enamoured with the delicious food [...]

Hello, you sexy, irresistable Brazilian piece of meat

February 3, 2009

I presume you’re beef? That’s right. It’s churrascaria fever baby. Recently my friend Jo and I caught up at one of the new churrasco joints that have been springing up all around Sydney – the one we went to was on William Street in East Sydney. Like all churrascarias, it’s an all-you-can-eat affair. Excellent! My [...]
