Some direction needed

Thank you. I was thinking of something a little more like what you describe. Will consider that and Chef Vola.

Thanks for the advice. Our trip isn't until May so maybe that's enough time to get a reservation, although we are kind of a large group (not rowdy though, we're all retired nurses)

Please review/critique my plan

If it's not too late (don't know dates of your trip), I'd add the happy hour at Gruner which is very close to the PSU area and is owned by reknown local chef, Chris Israel. Food is Alsation inspired and the HH prices are very reasonable. Also, Ping (same chef owner as Pok Pok , wonderful Asian street food and a full bar. It's just a short hop on almost any bus headed north or a good walk through downtown. Have a wonderful trip.

I'm sure this topic has come up a zillion times. Perhaps someone can direct me to some recent posts. Coming from Oregon next spring for a reunion with 9 friends and staying in LBI but plan a side trip to Atlantic City. What AC restaurants shouldn't be missed. We're doing our own cooking in LBI.

Thanks,

Lung soup?

I have been told that in Italy, the pork lung can be used for soup. Any information on this would be most welcome. I have a fresh set of pork lungs and can find little help with an internet search.
Thank you

Middle Eastern spaghetti style noodle search

That is strange. The website I found showed a picture of exactly the noodle I remember. Here's the link. http://sadaf.com/store/product187.html It's a Mediterranean gourmet store located in LA but with an extensive website. I've ordered a couple of packages so I guess I'll know soon enough.

Middle Eastern spaghetti style noodle search

Thanks to your tip I found an image that I'm certain is the same noodle. It is the reshteh noodle and not the faludeh but I did find it in my search of faludeh so many thanks again.

Middle Eastern spaghetti style noodle search

Thanks for your help. I'll see if I can find an image of the faludeh noodle. This was about 10 years ago and I'm not sure what specific country this now closed market catered to. However, the noodle in question was pale white and about as thick around as a small earthworm.
Appreciate your response.

Middle Eastern spaghetti style noodle search

When we lived near San Jose, CA., there was a Middle Eastern grocery store which sold these really spaghetti style noodles. They were unlike anything I've seen before or since, maybe as big around as 3 or more regular spaghetti or linguni noodles. The store closed, we moved out of state and now wonder what the name of those noodles might be. Would love to find a source. Anyone out there familiar with them?

Bahia Rice

I have spent a lot of time searching on-line and the only place I found it was on e-bay UK. They told me they can't ship it to the US. If you have seen another link where I can buy it, I would love to know. Saveur magazine had an article about paella and said this is the preferred rice but that it isn't available in the US. Of course this made me want it even more. The author of the article didn't indicate why it is not available here. I thinking a trip to Spain is the only solution. (-;

To Brine or Not to Brine???

I was just reading something about "dry brining" and wonder if that would work in this case. Basically it's just putting the salt and seasonings on the skin and letting it sit that way in the same manner as with traditional brining. I have no experience in the matter but it sounded plausible.
Sounds like a fun event at any rate.
Good Luck!

Bahia Rice

Does anyone know why this rice used for paella is not sold in the US? Experiences with substitutes?

what the &*%#**!!! is a Buddhist Duck?

Thanks for the links. The information was very helpful. Funny thing was the label also said "no head or feet" but there was one head -tucked under wing as noted in NYT article, and 2 feet (much better than the other way around).

what the &*%#**!!! is a Buddhist Duck?

Not tofu. We roasted it tonight sameas for any (non-religious) duck. Very flavorful but no a whole lot of meat.

what the &*%#**!!! is a Buddhist Duck?

Husband went to a local Asian market looking for duck. He found a frozen one which was labeled "buddhist duck". We thawed today. It is kind of a scrawny duck with feet intact and no little package of entrails inside. Would love to know more about this fowl.
Anyone have knowledge of the various subtleties of ducks found in Asian markets?

Heart for valentine's day, to brine or not to brine?

I'm glad you 'got it'. I really do need the food advice but the theme is most definitely seasoned with a bit of black humor (not available at Penzey's)
