Comfort In A Bowl…….Lamb, Peppers, Onions And Rice

>
>
Lately, some chefs, food bloggers and food-writers would like us to believe that a  “Rice Bowl” is the latest, newly invented, “IN” thing. Nothing could be further from reality. A rice bowl is a very old, very traditional thing, born out of necessity, at least in many parts of the world.
In all my travels around the globe, the most widespread food staple I encountered was rice. In most places where the majority of the population gets most of their daily nourishment from rice, which is the main food-staple of the land, a large bowl of rice, topped with “stuff”, (aka a “Rice bowl”), will have to do on most days as the single meal available.
The “stuff” can be anything – a single egg, a small amount of vegetables of any type, a tiny bit of animal protein, or just a flavorful, starch-thickened sauce.
I used to live in places where a single chicken wing was a great addition to a rice bowl (Philippines) ; In other places I met families who had to share a single fish head (Indonesia); Places where workers came in on their day off because the rice bowl contained chicken back stew (literally only the backbones),(Grenada); Or rice and beans (literally just rice and beans only), (Jamaica).
Of course, all these rice bowls are interchangeable from one country to another, and to this day can still be found in large parts of the world, where balanced nutrition and a better way of life has not trickled down to the general populace, even in the twenty-first century. Unfortunately, sometimes we forget that to obtain basic nutrition is still a daily struggle for many millions of people around the world, sometimes closer to home as we can and want to imagine, so a basic rice bowl is most appreciated in more places than we want to acknowledge.
I guess you’ve got the idea – a rice bowl can be a lifesaver because it constitutes the only meal of the day and the main source of nutrition.
On the other hand and on a happier note, a rice bowl can be a real culinary delight, as in the dish featured here today.
As with all other rice bowls mentioned above, it consist mostly of rice, topped with simple, filling and tasty “stuff” 🙂

Some Of The Places I Worked At Over The Years

Just some of the places I worked at over the year’s.
Many places don’t exist anymore and don’t have
any pictures on the net. I can’t even find a picture
of my own restaurant  ” Gildenkeller ” I had for
a while in East Germany  😦
If anybody out there who worked with me at any point
can help me with pictures of places which are missing here,
I would highly appreciate it if you would contact me. Thank’s  🙂
