The Buffalo – The Sandwich That Puts Most Others To Shame……….

>
>
Yes  friends, I really believe that this is one of the best sandwiches one can hope to find in today’s landscape of often-times overwrought, senseless concoctions.
While not as spectacular to look at as, let’s say, a five inch high monster loaded with 20 different ingredients, nor as expensive as a foie gras sandwich with lobster, gold leaf, caviar and truffles,  or as wildly exotic as a stinky tofu sandwich with hairy crab claws and pickled blow fish roe, The Buffalo achieves its winner status by being incredibly delicious, with a texture both perfectly crisp on the outside and heavenly moist on the inside, with just the right amount of spicy and tart as one could hope for in a proper sandwich 🙂
And by the way, did I mention that I love this sandwich and believe it to be one of the best ? 🙂

Tostadas Al Pescado (Fish Tostadas)

>
>
When  you decide to make tostadas, the biggest decision will be if you want to prepare  your own tortillas and fry them to a flat crisp or buy packaged tostada shells, which you can buy in any supermarket nowadays’, most of excellent quality. After that, the most sensible thing is to put the tostadas on a platter in the center of the table, arrange all the toppings in bowls around them and let everybody assemble their own favorite. Traditionally, refried beans, cotija cheese, a simple salsa and sometimes seafood are the main ingredients/toppings.
But, as you can imagine, tostadas, like most other dishes with a long culinary history, have evolved and advanced to be more adventurous and varied. Anything you fancy is allowed to grace your tostada, as long as it is delicious and makes you smile 🙂
Refried beans, shredded lettuce, sour cream, any cheese, any seafood, sausage, meat, grilled vegetables, any salsa, guacamole, etc, etc.
I happened to have some fresh Swai fillets at hand as well as white cabbage for a tasty cabbage slaw.  Added some guacamole, salsa Mexicana and a bit of sour cream and BINGO ! – exiting lunch served in a snap 🙂

The >OTHER< Kraut

>
>
Bayerisches Kraut  (Bavarian Cabbage) is the lesser known cousin of  Sauerkraut. Also made of shredded white cabbage, it is prepared from fresh, (not fermented) cabbage and its main characteristic is the inclusion of caramelized sugar and caraway seeds, which gives the dish its distinctive flavor and color. In my opinion, the only reason  Bayerisches Kraut  is not as popular as Sauerkraut stems from the fact that you can’t buy cabbage ready-sliced and therefore the extra work to do that prevents most home cooks to prepare this great dish. But let me assure you, the few minutes it takes to slice the cabbage are well worth the trouble and you will be rewarded with an extraordinary, flavorful dish which pair’s great with pork and game dishes.
Today I served my  Bayerisches Kraut  with  Eisbein, another one of my  “can’t live without it  ”  favorites 🙂

P.S.
As one reader has pointed out (thank you Sherry), you CAN get shredded cabbage at the supermarket. However, it is usually shredded very fine and therefore NOT suitable for Bayerisches Kraut.
