Some of you may have noticed that my friend Jose comments from time to time, and some of you may have also noticed his comment in the post a couple of days ago about the not-so-good butifara Catalana...
Now Jose included a description of how he would eat a butifara.
In homage to Jose's spectacular sounding idea, we had a very very nice lunch.
I altered things slightly, 'cause I'm just like that.
First, I didn't use the boutiffara...I got good high quality frankfurters....there were no buns that I could find, so instead I used crusty white bread that I bought warm at the bakers a couple of hours ago. I used allioli instead of mayo...this is an absolutely delightful Catalan sauce, take garlic and olive oil and pound them together until you get a smooth garlicy sauce...like garlic butter but better and garlicier (if you will allow me that word) I kept the avocados, the diced tomatoes with olive oil and salt, and the hot sauce (mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm) the girls and I though felt that putting either ketchup or mustard on this would have been a crime. The pickled cabbage? I am in the wrong country for that.
So here it is ladies and gentlemen, our lunch, Homage to Jose........
Boy was that ever delicious...the girls judged it the best lunch ever...I think I agree.
Now you may have noticed the fruit on the side...a persimmon I think it is called in English, the Catalan's call it Saint Peter's heart...though it may be St. Paul...either way they are sweet and luscious and smooth and silky....mmmmmm
So in thanks to Saint whomever, and even more so in thanks to Jose...we are full and happy and had the best lunch ever. Mmmmmmmmmm
