Favorite whisky recipes or go-withs?

Postby Lord_Pfaffin » Sat Apr 16, 2005 7:24 am

Here's one that i tried the other day and it worked well.
Strawberry-delight:
One quart of strawberries sliced then glazed with sugar (to taste). After an hour in the refrigerator add two ounces of Caol Ila 12, pour 8- 10 tablespoons of vanilla pudding on top stir and serve in pafait cup with a glass of the Caol Ila to accompany the strawberries. Whipped cream and sprinkle of chocolate on top optional.
The whisky really kicked it up a notch and i love food that affects you, like a spicy soup or that curried dish that you can't eat fast enough even though it's making you sweat profusely.
Any favorites that you wish to share?

How does it go when cooking with wine? Glass for the cook, glass for you and a glass for the sauce and so forth. One could just imagine substituting whisky, certain questions come to mind. Do you smell something burning? What was that loud noise and why is the cat stuck to the ceiling? Shall i use a step ladder or water-pistol to get the cat down? Damn-it where is that fire extinguisher?

Was there in fact something burning, or was the fire extinguisher for the cat?

The cat put out the fire and ran off with the bottle of whisky :wink:

Oban and sushi/sashimi is a surprisingly good combination, particularly if you stick to the richer, oilier fish like aji (horse mackeral), negitoro (tuna belly) or torched salmon. The brine is a natural complement to fish oils and Oban is not so heavy and smoky so as to overpower the flesh...of the fish, I mean.

Much to my delight, it also went very well with an Avocado-Maguro salad I had over the weekend.
