I have to say, I'm not crazy for mayo either, BUT! Any culinary flavor - DONE WELL - can be a good experience. And the French are experts at sauces and creams of all types, SO, I have to deduce that their mayo, particularly as previously described with some spices and/or herbs, could possibly be appetizing... I've tried a special type of mayo served as dipping for good fries, once, can't remember where, and it was interesting... good... in fact... for an occasional change. But I have to say, I'm a Puritan when it comes to cooking, so if I'm gonna have mayo, I want it plain!

^lol. But I'd still rather eat dirt. I have an aversion to mayonnaise that borders on pathological, and yes, it's partly due to my childhood.

All right folks, so one of my many fantasy careers is to be a Chef. Tonight I was a Thai Chef.

Menu: Vegetable & Tofu Green Curry over Basmati & Jasmine Rice w/ Flaxseeds.

Here it goes - hope you like Thai!

- Yellow & Green Squash, Eggplant, Green Beans
- Yellow & Red Bell Peppers, Green Jalapeno Peppers
- Bean Sprouts, Bok Choy
- Mushrooms: Button, Baby Portabella, Oyster
- Tofu
- Onions, Garlic, Ginger, Basil
- Olive Oil, Soy Bean Oil, Sesame Oil
- Green Curry
- Coconut Mousse
- Soy Milk, Lemon Juice
- Barley Malt
- Salt & Pepper

Yummi!!!!! I must say, it was wonderful, just creamy, just spicy, just zesty, just crisp enough!!!

Dessert: Fresh, juicy, sweetly ripened pineapples. B)

Something a lotta folks forget about the French, and European cultures in general is that there is a tendency not to waste any part of the animal that is being butchered. Plus, the quality of say, beef, is inferior to American steers. American steers are bred for butchering, whereas most French cows are bred for butchering AND dairy. less specialization within the breeds winds up producing inferior meat.

Part of the reason why the French came up with so many different elaborate sauces was also to cover up the flavor of inferior, or worse yet, rotting meat. Think of it like this: in America we typically use a ribeye, flank, strip loin, or the chateau of the tenderloin (where mignon comes from) but in French butchery, there is a world of cuts you'd never heard of...

Since coming to Austria I have become the worlds largest wiener schnitzel fan. It's not even that complicated of a dish, just a cutlet pounded thin breaded and pan fried in lard. Squeeze a lemon over it and serve with cranberry sauce on the side... heaven on a plate

Hands down the paella I had in Barcelona. I hadnt eaten anything substantial for about 24 hours and I was leaving Spain in a couple of days so I persueded the guys I was with to split a deal of paella. We went to the first restaraunt we could find that was advertising it, right near the beach, and ordered the 3 person meal. They brought a huge skillet of the stuff and some Sangria and we dug right in. It was the best - the mussels and the crawfish and fishy chucks along with gooey rice hit the spot like nothing before. It looked like a touristy place and I was expecting to get ripped off, it was so big we couldnt even finish it all and it was pretty reasonably priced too. Im going back for sure.
