Roadfood of the Day: Balaton - Cleveland, OH
Posted on Sunday, May 3, 2015


The scored, smoked sausage atop this traditional Hungarian stew is delicious in its own right, all the better for its bed of tomatoes, peppers, onions, and dumplings.

The Wrong Side is Right

The wrong side of the slice is what's right about New Haven's best pizzas. Note the little bits of burnt semolina that cling to the bottom, the sturdiness of the crust despite its being so thin, as well as its oh-so-deliciously charcoaly barely-blackened edge, and the mottled surface that is a toasty chew beyond description.

Roadfood Recipe: Venison Sausage
Posted on Friday, May 1, 2015 8:49 AM

Recipe of Venison Sausage

Succulent and sweet, singing of autumn in the country, this venison sausage was something I discovered at a Bull Run Hunt Club breakfast in Rapidan, Virginia. Sarah Womack, the chef who devised the recipe, suggests it be sided by small roasted potatoes, biscuits, or buckwheat pancakes. Note that the sausage mix should be refrigerated at least overnight before cooking.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 8

Lobster Roll

There is plenty of meat in the Lobster Shack's lobster roll; and note how the mayonnaise is not mixed in, but dolloped on. This is a very nice touch, allowing full appreciation of the large hunks of lobster.

The Dutch House Restaurant and Bakery sits in an out of the way location about thirty miles from Augusta, but is worth the drive. The location was originally a Stuckey’s Pecan Shoppe back in the days when U.S. Highway 1 was a major artery to Florida. In 1991, the building was expanded and reopened as a restaurant serving Southern food.

The food is served cafeteria-style. Fried chicken and roast beef are popular selections that are always on the menu, with at least two other entrees. Fried catfish is a delectable choice, when available. There are lots of good side dishes including yummy sweet potato casserole.

There is one quirk at the Dutch House. When you go through the cafeteria line and get your food and drink, you are not given your bill. After you sit down, a waitress will come by your table and write up your check for you to pay on the way out.

The bakery opens early in the morning and is worth a stop, even if you are not there at meal time. There is a large selection of homemade sweet treats including dessert bars, cookies, cakes, and cupcakes. The cream cheese pastries and cinnamon rolls are delicious and must-try items.

Lunch is served every day except Sunday, but dinner is only available on Friday and Saturday.

Good food, small town friendliness, and lots and lots of pleasing options for those with a sweet tooth make the Dutch House a worthwhile eating destination.

Chicken Dinner

A red-brown envelope of crust distinguishes lard-fried Barberton chicken. It is good and salty and sturdy enough to hold in tidal waves of juice that flow out at first bite.

Roadfood Recipe: Eggs Benedict
Posted on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 5:06 AM

Recipe of Eggs Benedict

"The most important thing for poaching eggs is acid in the first water," Al's chef advised many years ago when we first visited the little diner in Minneapolis' Dinkytown. "White vinegar or lemon juice causes the egg to clutch up just right. Give it a quick dip in plain hot water before putting it on the plate." The hollandaise is a classic recipe, the only secret of which is to make it fresh. On a busy day at Al's, that means two or three times each morning.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Servings: 4

Sirloin steak

Calgary is Canada’s cow town. Home of the annual Stampede – Canada’s #1 Rodeo – it is a place where ten-gallon hats and belts with saucer-size trophy buckles are standard attire, and where Alberta beef commands respect no less than beef in Texas. One of the best places to eat that beef – as well as all sorts of other great food – is the River Café on Prince’s Island Park. The restaurant boasts that it offers regional woodfired Canadian cuisine, meaning it is local, modern, and delicious.

The restaurant's location in Prince's Island Park itself is magical, accessible only by foot, bicycle, or skates (no cars), Designed to look like a rustic fishing lodge, it is a romantic destination with an open deck shaded by cottonwood trees. The menu is a broad one, serving an authoritative repertoire of Northwest cuisine that ranges from such exotica as stinging nettle soup and Alberta lamb paté to a beautiful platter of cedar-planked wild salmon.

What drew our attention as we walked towards the front door was the aroma of sizzling meat; in particular, we relished a strip loin steak that was firm, full-flavored and as satisfying as only grass-raised, grain-finished beef can be. To compare and contrast, we also sampled an Alberta buffalo rib-eye. It came with fetching horseradish emulsion; it was juicy and flavorful; but tasty as it was, we’ll return for beef every time.
