A "foodie" friend of mine is also a Gordon Ramsay fan. He's a chef from England who's had a few T.V. shows here in the United States. The video you are about to see here is only shown in the U.K., and it shows a different side of Ramsay, not the crazy-cusses-like-sailor-angry chef we know on FOX's Hell's Kitchen. Of course, there's still a bit of foul language, but that's just who he is. Ignore it, and you'll be amazed. In Gordon's Great Escape: India, Ramsay really steps away from his comfort zone to learn how people in India really cook. If you want to see interesting ways to cook goat, you'll be interested in this. Or how about a "chutney" made of ants and ant eggs? Ramsay shows real passion for food and its history as he makes his way through India on his great escape.
We've always loved watching shows like this, ones that really get into the nitty-gritty in the art of cooking. It's not just about the food, but also the people who make it, the history behind it, and the ever important harvesting of raw ingredients. Perhaps we'll try Indian and wild game one day. The idea looks very promising. :-)

Oh, and sorry, but we lied. This week's recipe will be carne asada tacos, not fish. Tonight will be taco night at the stable where we ride. We figured we could kill two birds with one stone, have a bbq with great friends and also get a recipe out of it. One of our friends is an avid fisherman, and he always brings the fish. Doesn't make any sense for us to bring fish, too. Keep an eye out for that taco recipe! Looks and smells good already. It's marinating in the fridge right now.
