"Swept" away by Scopa Italian Roots

It's a combo of beef & pork that Dave makes himself. He also has great fresh bread that has just the right amount of chew to stand up to the sauce but it's soft enough to wrap around the meatballs. My mouth is watering right now thinking about it. Anyway I am not an expert on meatball subs but it's for sure one of the best I have had an a damm amazing sandwich. He also makes a sandwich called the hodgepodge that adds pastrami to a meatball sub that takes it to another level. Add to that he makes his own pepper spread.

Jesse have you tried the meatball sub at Dave's in Eagle Rock?

darn, and it was the only sort of offal that I'd consider eating again because it's so incredibly delicious.

agreed. We should be going after the chicken farmers that cram their birds into cages one on top of another.

Do a little reading how good Foie is produced rather than the knee jerk reaction everyone seems to have. When done right it's no more cruel than any other animal husbandry for human consumption. http://www.seriouseats.com/2010/12/th...

Ya, I started not ordering in restaurants a while ago when I realized how easy it was to make good. I like to order the pre sliced ones like the link below. Sear in a little butter then drizzle with really really good Balsamic. I like the Made in Canada Rougie as well.

You can order it online, it's pretty simple to prepare.

One night in Santa Barbara - Where to Eat?

Local crab steamed to order at Santa Barbara Shellfish Co is as local and perfect as you can get. It's not fancy but they have good beer and wine and all the seafood is excellent.

the Best Canned Tuna?

Red Fox Cheese in LA

Thanks, I had found that site but I hadn't actually gotten on the phone with them yet. I was hoping hounds might have just seen it at a local cheese store. I'll call them though.

Red Fox Cheese in LA

I think that meant limited edition at TJs. Per their website it seems that Belton is still making Red Fox, I was hoping someone else carried it. I like the reg Red Leicester as well but I LOVE the crunchy bits in the red fox.

Red Fox Cheese in LA

They have a Red Leicester with a few other add ins that isn't as good. The Red Fox is a bit different that reg Red Leicester. I called a few cheese stores and no luck. http://www.redfoxcheese.co.uk/

I became rather obsessed with this cheese when TJ's carried it. They don't anymore and I can't find it anywhere online. Has anybody been able to find it in LA?

Do Any Restaurants Deliver from Eagle Rock?

Brownstone is really good pizza, Meatballs & baked ziti. Their salads are really good too.
Green Dragon is basic chinese, americanish. Stay away from the soups, the orange peel beef is good.
Classic Thai has a great coconut seafood soup. The beef salad is meh.
Also it sound like where you are is close to Little Flower, that might be good for takeout.

Favorite Cabbage ideas

I have grilled Cabbage & I love it! Thick wedges are better than slices. Light brushing of oil, then drizzle with anchovy, garilc, egg yolk salad dressing and lots of pepper.

Anchovies : Love it or hate it.

I LOVE anchovies. Try and get the italian ones packed in glass jars. They tend to be less salty. Love Agostino Recca or Stella Del Mare.
I add them to pasta sauces and stews, just one per serving but they add this Unami flavor (reduce salt)
There is a great relish I do with them for grilled lamb. Equal parts chopped anchovy, parsley, garlic & Capers. Add olive oil to taste.
Also great for Salad dressings of all sorts not just ceasar.
Even love them on wheat toast with sour cream and chives for breakfast.
YUM Anchovy..

Tips for turning a venison heart into a pot roast or stew?

I modified a Bourguignon Recipe for grass fed beef heart and it would prob work with Venison as well. It was really really good.

Beef Heart Bourguignon-
Heat oven to 350.
3lbs beef heart, large cubed as much fat as possible removed.
Coat with flour S&P and brown in frying pan with some oil. (deglaze the pan with some of the wine)
In dutch oven, 2 strips bacon sauteed, add 2 onions and whole garlic cloves from one head. Saute until brown.
Add beef, green peppercorns & 5 smashed juniper berries. Add one and half bottles of red wine and a glass of water. Bring to a boil.
Cover put in oven for 3 hours.
Remove from oven. Skim fat from top with a spoon. uncover and simmer on the stovetop for another hour to reduce the gravy. Add extra flour at this point if desired.
Serve with crusty bread.
