Because I was lucky enough to win Elle's birthday giveaway, I am the proud owner of a year's subscription to Saveur. This came just in time, as I had let my previous subscription expire in an effort to save some cash. Thanks Elle!
Typically I only summarize recipes, but you have to check out the article on the Mangalica (pronounced 'mangalitsa') pig from Hungary in this issue. They're so cute and furry! Also don't miss "Better Than Butter", a short essay on why bacon fat rules. And much more - this issue rocks!
So here's a roundup of the yummiest looking recipes from my 1st issue:
- Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Raclette, Herbs, and Prosciutto - I love me some stinky cheese, even better when there's prosciutto next to it.
- Spicy Guinness Mustard - I've been meaning to make my own mustard for a while now, this recipe may just be the clincher.
- Zuppa di Grano Cuturru (Sicilian Greens and Bulgur Soup) - because the weather has me wanting stuff like this.
- Cassoulet - Two words: Duck. Fat.
