An Offal Conversation: Chatting with Nose to Tail at Home
I met Ryan at Foodbuzz and a serious friendship was born. Some people you connect with immediately & deeply, which we certainly did! We talked about so many things in just over a day: food, writing, photography, blogging, champagne, wine, you name it, we talked about it.
Then the Offal conversation began. Ryan's blog is Nose To Tail at Home, where he cooks, well, offal. Now he was having a tough time convincing me until he pulled out his phone and showed me this: Sweetbreads.
It looks so tasty, I thought maybe I better invite him onto the show and help others who, like me, might be intimidated by the whole offal mess. Ryan talks about the recipes he's made, which ones he hasn't and the fact that he still can't get his hands on a Woodcock.
Based out of Central Texas, Ryan S. Adams has worked in the tech industry for seven years. Late in 2007, he was inspired to "cook-the-book" and write about it after reading Carol Blymire's "French Laundry At Home" blog. He's currently working his way through the award winning St. John's cookbook, "The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating", written by Fergus Henderson.
He is also a columnist for Eat Me Daily and an all around geniunely great guy, so please make sure to tune in!
