Guest Post: Mince and Tatties

From the great guest-poster, Luis Molina
This is a Scottish dish I heard about a couple of months ago.  It caught my interest as it is a common dish in Scotland, a country I’ve always had a fascination with – the people, their food, and its culture.  Information on the internet says that there’s no set recipe for this dish other than the use of minced meat, usually cheaper cuts of meat, like chuck, blade, or clod and served with mashed potatoes. Other ingredients like onions, carrots, and other root vegetables can be added.  For this recipe, I will be using onions, carrots, and peas.  Some other methods used in preparation include thickening agents like flour, oatmeal, or cornflour – I recommend adding a little bit of cornstarch with some cold water.

Explore: River North Releases Canned IPA

Red. Hoppy. Portable.

Last night we went over to River North Brewery to grab a 4-pack of the brand new River North IPA cans. Once again, they have created another fantastic brew. The IPA is a spin-off of BPR and it is a citrusy, hoppy delight. I planned on saving some for cooking, but I guess I’ll just have to go grab some more because we drank them all. Don’t wait, go try it out.

Explore: Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

I knew The Source was a rad place long before I went there to drink beer. Not only had I looked it up online, I had eaten a delicious chorizo benedict at Comida, a restaurant in the building, a few weeks before. The Source is a collective of eateries, providers of booze, and quaint little shops. Within the warehouse, there is a butcher, a baker, a florist, a gallery, a distillery, and nestled in the back left corner is Crooked Stave. The surrounding atmosphere is hip yet the look of the bar is simple and sleek. They put all their focus into their brews, which becomes quite apparent when you start to drink them.
