While poking around some new-to-me food blogs I found the Laughing Gastronome and some different foods I've never heard of. One was Pork Rillettes which was described as a coarser pate and served about the same way. I am intrigued but need to know what one of the ingredients would be here in the states, skinless and boneless fatty pork belly. Anyone have a clue if that is uncured bacon? I don't think it would be salt pork, seems like too much fat.
I did find a conversion chart that might be helpful for bloggers wanting to try some recipes from other countries. Also, take a look at Emma's site, she's got some great pix of her dishes and some entertaining descriptions. She also has a pickled onion recipe that I can't wait to try.
