Amuse-Bouche

The culinary definition of an Amuse Bouche...is a single, bite-sized hors d’œuvre. Amuse-bouche are different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but, when served, are according to the chef's selection alone. These are served as an excitement of taste buds to both prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef's approach to cooking. That is the definition of this blog. The idea to start this blog was suggest by an old HS friend and supported by a favorite cousin of mine. I decided there was no time like the present. I hope to stimulate your taste buds, educate your culinary knowledge as well as my own, give you some insight as to why and what I love to cook and eat, and have some fun doing it. I look forward to writing and reading your comments and suggestions. As the great Julia Child said...." Bon Appetit". Of course I will hopefully come up with something witty and personal of my own to sign off with! LOL

You better be prepared to amuse mu bouche will perfectly prepared backstrap, dove, duck, halibut and any other game meat that I can score between now and November.

Just think - you cook it and I give you material for yet another blog that won't be maintained.

OK little bro.....I will amuse your bouche......or try to ( although I am pretty sure I will succeed ). As for the unmaintained blogs....you have slacked off yourself a bit too ya know. LOL. Actually since FB, I felt connected to everyone without the blog. That was my only purpose for starting it in the first place. We will see. Are you planning a quick trip to Alaska for more Halibut? I am keeping my fingers crossed for a lucrative hunting trip or two before I come down! I will start reading up on game meats.
