I know there are a number of Cyburbian chefs out there. Last night I made a German themed dinner - Geschmorte Schweinrippen (Pork chops marinated in mustard powder/lemon juice and smothered in onions and tomatoes), spaetzle (german style noodles), fresh green beans seasoned with savory cooked with mushrooms and onions, red cabbage, sauerkraut with caraway seeds cooked in white wine and a couple bottles of Staropramen beer (yeah, I know its Czech beer but thoroughly Kraut in spirit). Sorry no black forest cake or strudel for dessert, but I don't think I'd be spraining my arm while patting myself on the back and saying it was pretty damn good.
Mrs. M and I alternate cooking an international themed meal each week. For some reason I like doing German food best but over the years (and 6,000 cookbooks later) we have prepared very authentic: Puerto Rican, Italian, Swedish, Polish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mexican, Spanish, French, Vietnamese, middle eastern and many other ethnic meals. The entire meal is supposed to be themed although there have been occasions where we have liked something really well and just prepared a particular ethnic dish served along with the Hamburger helper on Weds. night.
I don't expect that many Cyburbians prepare the whole ethnic meal theme often but is there a particular dish that anyone feels is their forte? (c'mon, guys are expert chili chefs if nothing else!) You will all recieve 1/112th share of the royalties from the cookbook I am compiling entitled "Throbbing Brain Recipes"
Edit: my publisher advises me the title has been changed to "The Cooking of the Throbbing Brain".
