Day 105 Project LocalrootZ (April 16,2010)

Macintosh Apple

Slice of Spelt Bread

Pan Fried Cusk
w/ Roasted Potatoes
Glass of Weihenstephaner Doppelbock*

* Not Local : Yes we have strayed here and there on our 100% local beverages.  Even we have our limits and occasionally I will drop a few dollars at Downeast Beverage and purchase some high quality brew.  We also have had our moments of caffeine withdraw and on those rainy afternoons... we will indulge in a few shots of espresso or a french press full of Matt's Coffee.  However we stay dedicated to our food sources being complete of Maine origin 100% !

Anyhow that being said, yes I put a little of the beer in the batter and managed to drink the rest.  Cassi even took a small glass of the pure clean German doppelbock.  Im a beer geek, I love trying different varieties from various different regions... however if i were to pick three brewers that make a wide array of very high quality beer I would narrow it down to Cantillon, Allagash, Mikkeller .
Ok enough beer talk... dinner was great with Cassi throwing the potatoes in an hour before I got home making them cooked to perfection and on the brink of bursting with juice.  A wonderfully nourishing dinner that had me pan frying the $2.99/# fish in a beer/egg mixture then breaded in fresh ground cornmeal that was tossed with ground herbs (sage, rosemary, thyme). From there it is onto the pan of hot sunflower oil and a tablespoon of butter.  Yummmm!
