31Days - Ital Stew in Dub

Right now the theme for this meal is chili. Not killer hot, but certainly tasty. Probably tangy and fruity. Hope that doesn't scare anyone away.
Recently I've been enjoying playing with smokey flavours, and just brought some interesting peppers back from the UK on my last visit. Also reading a new cook book that could lead to some strange new places. I'll update the specifics right after the holidays.

What I can tell you, is that there will be vinyl sides of Scientist, Mad Professor, Augustus Pablo and the mighty Jah Shaka. Also as a sweet treat, I shall reveal where the riff of Nirvana's "Smell's Like Teen Spirit" was originally stolen from. (This may (or may not) be reason enough to eat with us, as this isn't a record you'll find on iTunes, YouTube or Spotify.) Otherwise things will be spiced up with some Francis Bebey, Fela and a twist of Wes Montgomery. In so far as no digital music will be played under any circumstances, we're open to requests.


The final menu in full:

Tomato Bouillabaisse with Braised Artichokes, Haricot Chipotle Brandade and Skillet Bread.

Arepa Corncakes, Ital Stew Parcels, Pickle Pepper Stingo, Chipotle Pinto Refry with Guava and Tamarind Ice.

Pistachio Wafers with Raspberry and Rosewater Frappé
