Can't believe it took me this long to get back here ...

  1. Marmite / Vegemite: I'll go with "not good." Frankly, when you use the suffix -ite, whatever food you think you are making, it's bound to taste like salts. Or, salty versions of the root word, i.e. like a salty vegetable or, and I can't help but think this, like a salty Marmot. I'm good with eating rodent, when necessary. Even better, I like a good sheared beaver coat (my wife worked for a furrier for a while, and the general shopper is an older couple; so, her favorite "trick" was to ask the husband if he wanted to feel how soft the sheared beaver was, and then walk him over to the correct coat; have to love saucy women!). And, I'm ok with umami, but, as a flavor, it needs something to balance it. Neither of the -ites has any balance (I'm thinking it's the food equivalent of Bambi on ice), so I'm pretty out.
  2. Mmmmm, bacon jam!
  3. Is turnip cabbage a turnip or a cabbage? And which 5 spices (or do you mean what we in the States call "Chinese 5 spice": star anise, cloves, cinnamon, pepper and fennel? I've spent some time with both turnips and cabbage, but I'm not sure I've ever tried to season them with 5-spice. Now that I think about it, I bet a fennel and roasted turnips salad would be pretty tasty


As for "contributions" and since we are a week away, I think we need to discuss that most American of holidays, Thanksgiving (quiet down in the back, Canada, I'm using "American" in the general New World sense, and when you have the world's largest economy, you can complain about it): a celebration of gluttony, cultural appropriation and boundless possibility disguised as humility.

It's the best (although, we really need to decide upon a better protein than turkey).

I'm trying to convince my wife to try goose for Christmas.

I have no chance of success, but a boy can dream.

Anything with a suffix of -ite, usually is preceded with a prefix of -sh.

Ah, good old Thanksgiving. The giving of thanks to the generous natives who gave their land to the newcomers.
Or, the celebration of the murder of the natives and the theft of their land. But hey, the victor always gets to write history.
