Fish and Chips in St. Louis

I'm with Doug, Mcgurk's or the Tap Room. I personally prefer the tap room. The fish and chips are very good, but better yet all those delicious Schlafly beers at your disposal. I think that Schlafly will have a Cask conditioned ale and Cod festival in March. You should go!

Anthony Bourdain blogs about the Food Network...

Yes! great show, I actually learn something when I watch it. You should try his bacon wrapped raost chicken. I used to watch this show all the time, untiil they took it off the air waves. Then they brought it back this year.

I do regret to say I was abhorred to see Tyler's face plastered all over an Applebee's commercial.....another on bites the dust!

Where to buy meat in St. Louis?

Awesome, that is exactly what I wanted to hear! I will be sure to explore all of those ideas. Out of curiousity, was the farmer in Cape Brian Trumper? I went to SEMO and put myself through school waiting tables and bartending at the nicer resturaunts. Brian was formerly a cook at the last place I worked, which, by the way, if you are ever in Cape Girardeau, you would be cheating yourself if you didn't eat at Celebrations. Seriously good food, and a four time Wine Spectator wine list award winner. Also, in Wine Spectator's Best Wine Resturaunts in the world book! Hard to believe!

STL - Pujols 5

What was the price range like? Is this a Carribean/Dominican Republic themed resturaunt?

Where to buy meat in St. Louis?

I know there is Schnucks, and I know there is a Whole Foods. Schnucks is no butcher, lets face it, and as for the latter...well I am not wealthy enough to purchase meat from the overpriced meat counter. My wife is from Ste. Genevieve, and when we visit her family, I always stop at Oberle meat market. They have freshly cut meat. Good meat! Anything you need. Natural sausage casings, pork belly, etc. Is there anything like this around St. Louis? I recently found a recipe for a provencal pork daube. It calls for Berkshire hog. I know I probably won't attain that quality, but surely I can find some good, marbled pork. Can anyone help!

Favorite Cheese?

The stankier the better. In my opinion, cows have the most earthy and stinky (yet deliciuous) cheese. That is not to discredit sheep and goat, as sheep's milk cheeses may be my favorite. Anyway, what do you think? Epoisse is a washed rind cow's milk if I recall correctly.

I love Bacon!
all kinds.

I want to start making my own. I have the book, but I don't have the pig belly. Problem is I can't find it. I live in St. Louis (St. Charles area), and if I go into Schnucks and ask for pork belly they look at me as if I spoke in latin.

Somone guid me to an old fahioned Butcher shop!

Favorite Cheese?

Anyone ever had Epoisse? It's a washed rine cow's milk cheese from Burgundy. Delicious!

After that I like almost any sheep's milk cheese, like Oppenzeller (forgive my spelling) or Manchego.

But realy, I've never met a cheese i didn't like.
