Who carries tripe and other organs?
Migros, Coop, Manor, the local butcher.

Manor has the widest selection of offal, they usually have sweetbreads and brains as well and the usual stuff.

how did you prepare the tripe?
1) buy the cleaned and parboiled stuff (don't think I've ever seen any sold here that isn't, but you never know)

2) wash and cut into pieces

3) either make a sofritto first (carot, celery, onion softend in olive oil), or just fry the tripe on it's own until browned

4) add canned tomatoes, broth, tomato paste, or some combination as you prefer depending on how you plan to use it. We often add it to minestrone, in which case we use broth with a little tomato paste, but for last night's trip with potatoes I also added a can of tomatoes.

5) simmer until cooked to your liking (we usually go 2 hours or so), and the liquid is reduced as desired. For last night's, I added some cut up potatoes 30 minutes or so before the end, and then topped it with grated cheese and put it in the oven to brown.

The pictures make it look like the rice was a bit overdone, i.e. tending a bit much towards the "congee" side of things.

But hey, if it tastes good, why rabble? Looks nice, and has got to be better and cheaper than whatever Migros flogs ready-made (or ready imported into store).

altought I followed the instructions, the rice was a bit undercooked, and maybe I didn't washed it enough.

It tasted OK... had better sushi before

Ossi bucchi with steamed potatoes and salad (last night).

Octopus salad (using some of the 3.5 kg octopus I bought and boiled last night), fennel/onion/rucola salad, smoked swordfish carpaccio (smoked by me ten days ago), toady for lunch.

Latterini fritti, with salad. (tonight)

Nice! What's in the creamy mash? I like mine with sweet potato and cauliflower.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

i made Hummus. I love hummus but have not found good hummus in ZH so I decided to make it by myself.
Chickpeas soaked in water over night to make it easy to digest, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Lebanese 7 spice marinated fillet of lamb.

It'll be seared on a griddle pan and served with a simple tomato, onion and cucumber salad.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Last night's dinner, lunch today and tonight's dinner was Stroganoff cooked with pork rather than beef.

Last night it was served with salad mix and potato spaetzli. For lunch, with salad mix and rice. Tonight, we'll see... I haven't left the office yet, as of this post going up...
