"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

This is Tyler's all time favorite, and he insisted that I include this recipe. This is what he requests everytime I ask for ideas for the week's menu. He even asked for this when I asked him if he had a request for a special Thanksgiving Dish.
