Fussili Col Buco With Venison Bolognese, Vodka And Gorgonzola

>
>
Yesterday  I got some fresh ground venison from a friend visiting from Tennessee.
I am usually not a big fan of game but since he asked me to prep something for dinner, I came up with this dish which turned out to be pretty amazing 🙂
Obviously, if you don’t eat game, you can substitute the venison with any other ground meat. Traditionally, the alcohol to cook game with would be gin (juniper berry flavor), but I don’t drink that stuff so I don’t have it at home. However, vodka and chopped juniper berries did the trick here.

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

Vodka & Wine Flatbread

.
.
Wodka & Wine Flatbread ”

If you wonder about the name of this dish ? –
Last night at around 1.30am, after  “a bit”  of vodka and wine, my friend Darryl “demanded” food. Here is what I could muster :
Freshly baked flatbread with salame, mascarpone, egg, mushroom, banana peppers, sriracha and grated asiago cheese.
It might not have been pretty but ist sure hit the spot 🙂

Bon Appetit !  Cheers !   Life is Good !

Ziti In Wodka Sauce

.
If  you love pasta, this dish is for you.
The only, important, vital thing to take into consideration :
Butter, butter, butter.!  Olive oil  just does not cut it here.
I know butter has gone out of fashion with many folk’s,
but here is the time and occasion when you have to leave
your healthy pad for a moment and indulge in the goodness of
butter. Not butter substitute, not clarified butter, just plain,
rich, good tasting butter   🙂

.

.
Ingredient’s

Ziti,  cooked, drained, some cooking water reserved
Tomato sauce,  canned
Wodka,
Garlic,  paste
Peperoncino romano,  finely grated
Butter,
Sriracha,
Maggi seasoning,
Kosher salt,
Chili flakes,
Italian parsley,

Method :

Saute garlic in butter until fragrant, deglaze with wodka.
( Careful with the flame, you don’t want to set your eyebrows
or your kitchen on fire ). Add tomato sauce,  cooking water,
sriracha and pasta, heat to a simmer. Remove from heat,
add more butter, cheese, maggi and salt and mix well. Adjust
