    I actually like Brussel sprouts, especially with bacon, (my wife makes a Brussel sprouts salad to die for) but if I was to pick a veggie from Belgium I'd go with endives.

    And yeah, best beer in the world. Props to those Trappist monks!

  4. Haha, we have a solution for that over here.
    Mothers would grab your nose and squeeze your nostrils tight closed.
    So you would have to open your mouth and in goes the sprout.:D

    Brussels sprouts vs. asparagus. :cautious:
    I avoid that dilemma by not eating either one.

    Yes, my mother is French and her father was Belgian. I was forced to eat them as a kid. Never again.

    I went online to verify my recipe for Saffron Risotto w/Shrooms. Nothing suspicious till I got to the prep. 1st item when I got to the prep was...preheat oven to 400 deg! :eek: The person claimed to be an "Italian Chef"! :rolleyes:

    Ps...it's caveot emptor time when doing a search! :cautious:

    Pps...just for giggles I go on line for a Boston Baked Bean recipe just before preparing. It should be a criminal offense to post some of that crap. :mad:

    I make chicken with saffron rice - a recipe from Williams Sonoma, except I replace the tomatoes with red peppers that I put in a blender.

    It gets great reviews from my dinner guests (including my very picky mother).

    350F. I rarely use the oven and I certainly never use it at 400F.

    The glory of the meat, and the science of "the change" associated with asparagus... truly a perfect pairing.

  14. Oh?
    You've got some cooking where you have to have the oven at 250 Celsius=480F when you put your food in the oven and then turn the temp down to 180C=350F.

    You people who can eat Brussels Sprouts are amazing. I become a polluter of toxic gasses.

    Had them one time for dinner. It was a great relief to leave my bedroom in the morning.

    Never again.
