THE BOOYAH COOK IN NANTES: CEVICHE

How was your weekend? I was on a fabulous exclusive weekend retreat holiday to which none of you were invited, while you were all sweating away wishing you were me. Don’t give up on life yet, because I have something SUPER SPECIAL!! From the deepest Nantes on Ghetto Street follow me into the private kitchen of Chef Pascal LeBrain who presents a very special summer holiday recipe for you all to try at home.

SALMON CEVICHE

A very glamorous and sophisticated dish.”

Ingredients

  • FRESH salmon – best if you buy this with Eva at the fish market fresh that morning and ride a bike to get it and get some flowers afterwards.
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • dill, chopped
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper

1. Get a 2 inchish deep dish with a flat bottom CERAMIC OR GLASS not metal and cover the bottom of it with oil, a quarter of the lemon juice, a sprinkle of dill and seasoning.

2. Cut the salmon into the thinnest slices as you can possibly imagine. Unfortunately, we were too busy talking to remember about the grain of the fish straight away. We did work on that shortly after this exclusive video was shot.

3. Make a layer of fish in the prepared dish. Don’t overlap the fish too much.

4. Cover the fish in a little more oil, lemon or lime juice, a sprinkling of dill and seasoning.

5. Cut another gang of fine fish slices in the opposite direction to how Pascal does it in the video – cut towards the tail – and layer it in the dish.

6. Repeat step 4 and 5 until you run out of fish to cut.

7. Leave for a few hours covered in the fridge.

8. Have a little  amuse bouche made by Eva as a special treat that turns out to be BOUDIN [blood sausage] and banana and have a huge conversation about the first time you got your period, how your mother humiliated you with [lack of] sex education, buying a bra, having sex with your period etc.

9. Drink home made Caipirinhas in the meantime and get pretty drunk. Dancing around the kitchen in your underpants is not a bad idea either.

10. Get the fish out of the fridge and serve with real French bread.

11. Drink a lot more homemade cocktails

12. End up in the garden in the middle of the night rolling around on the grass and/or singing “Oh L’amour” while dancing having the best time ever.

13. Then do some spiritual garden worshipping after midnight in an amazing dress.

14. Ensure you drink enough to feel really ill the next day when you get woken up at 7am to kiss goodbye a little human on their way to school and when you finally get to IKEA realise you need to have a long sit down and a cheeseburger from Mc Donald’s and  coke wander absent mindedly into the supermarket and buy a kilo of sugar in large grains for making chouquettes, two giant jars of speculoos paste and a tin of white tuna for your cat. Or the equivalent.

And there you have it! Another simple and amazing recipe that you will love – except if you are Mrs Kipling who probably didn’t even make it to the end of this post as she heaves.

AND THANK YOU TO PASCAL LEBRAIN and EVA FOR ANOTHER BRILLIANT WEEKEND AND A SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR YOU BOTH…

IS THIS A PARTY?

Listen to the music in the video below and look into my eyes.

ENFP AND A SPIRITUALIST CHURCH

Last night with Iris and Madame I went to a Spiritualitst church for an hour of clairvoyance.

I think we would have got more if we had given Iris’ dog Chilli a pair of scissors and asked her to cut from card impressions of our future. I got a reading about getting cold feet about things, being good with my hands, getting a new bag and that my mother was dead. Apparently I should say more than I do, that I can do more than I think… If that were true it leaves me in a real quandry – I alway feel like I move too quickly, say too much, freestyle what I do anyway. Maybe she was feeling the vibe of the person who was sitting in the same spot last week.

HOWEVER, meeting with a firm of accountants today, I was informed I am an ENFP personality type. I love all that mumbo jumbo analysis stuff when it isnt trying to be really true. I read the description of what I am though, and what Jess’ is, and we both had to say of each other that they were quite descriptive of our characters. I was a bit sad to read that ENFP’s only make up 2%-8% of the population [of people that believe in it? of people in the west that have been analysed? I mean who knows, maybe a lot of people in Papua New Guinea are actually this but they never got tested?]

I also quit Guardian Soulmates for a while. I mean, what kind of place is that anyway?

P.S.
Please read Iris39’s report on the same event at the Spiritualist church here. It is worth the click.

GOOD BYE KOWLOON

I’m at gate 16 with a bloated period belly and lower back pain as a result of strutting round Hong Kong like Miss It. Or Germany’s Next Top Model. Whichever is trashier in a tasteful way.

Today was Bird Market – if I didn’t have bird flu before I sure do now – flower market and then fabric and trims district. I dropped a few bombs in a few shops stocking up on supplies like buttons.

Then I went to The Dragon-Centre in west west west west Kowloon. Don’t go there unless you like looking at piles of trash in the street and old people selling trash on blankets etc like me and enjoying the beauty in sadness.

The point is though at big shopping centres there are always clean toilets and food courts. Today was a Pizza Hut lunch. Get this – pepperoni tortilla pizza. A wafer thin base almost like paper with pepperoni, cheese, sauce, sweetcorn and PEACH. Too fucking good.

I’m sad to leave Hong Kong.

CHIEN D’AMOUR

Et voila! MORE spiritual animal love vibes, this time from my French family in Nantes who take care of me in the Mountain Room when I am there. “What else?” and “Oh bah dis donc!” etc

Et puis, je vais au pieu. Bisous.

THE MIGRAINE SKANK

Paul C accused me of being racist on the grounds he is caramel and Alice I never met. But I love this video they made at home. I wonder if the will know I ripped it? I should probably tell them. Anyway isn’t it wonderful to know that I wasn’t the only one who was making videos over the weekend. You can check more about Wamp-Nation on their blog.

KILLING IT

PP AT 17

Today after work at the new place I dropped in on the guy with the Urban Jew-Do Paul Peroni [he of the perfectly balanced bobby pins] and we sat and had a chat about hmmm… concerning the edges of feeling comfortable within yourself… if I can paraphrase the whole thing in a one sentence summary. As a result of a statement I made, Paul said he has to send me this list above from Fischli/Weiss and I decided I should share it with all of you. If you are feeling unhappy and fucked after a week at work, it is probably because you are not living life like the above.

My favourite is number 6 – accept change in inevitable. It is a variation on a theme I like to think about and that it – it can be tough sometimes to change your mind when you are half way through something, but sometimes it is okay just to let it go and do something else.

MUSEE DE MINERALOGIE

I’m in Paris. Today I went to the Musée de Minéralogie at the Pierre & Marie Curie University. I have to say, it was a far more funny and interesting experience than visiting Colette yesterday. Cause 1) three young boys got me with silly string outside the building an raced off on their scooter which was the first time this ever happened to me and I loved it and 2) Although the mineral collection is not as big as the one at the Natural History Museum in London, the collection was much prettier and I liked how it is presented – in glass cases like the Crown Jewels 3) I was able to get the Metro directly to Pierre Hermé and buy some macaroons without queueing. (Taste test and pictures later.)
I am only sorry that I was not able to take some pictures of the beautiful specemins of Malachite that they had in the Musée de Minéralogie collection. There were no pieces of anything from Tasmania in the collection which was another bummer – there is one in the Natural history Museum but there were a quite a few cool Meteorites that were found in Australia on display. Oh – also a bit shit – you could hear the ticket man’s radio playing The Beatles etc as you walked around the collection. So not right. Moon Birds would have been better.

MANNA FROM HEAVEN

If I had charged everyone a pound to come and watch me take part in a Qi Gong class I would have been super rich I am sure, but I have to say that it wasn’t that bad and Valeria – la maladiction de la shalolin temple – even said it wasn’t that funny watching me do it cause I was okay at it. Any so after making 2000 chicon jokes and Qi Gong jokes and jokes about my Qi, I have to say that I also felt like I had a good spring in my step this morning on my way to work and a nice sense of balance in the way everything was going. Suddenly, a slice of bread landed at my feet from the sky when I was on Magdala Avenue. Had I not been so in tune with the universe, that bread could have hit me on the head. Foruntately though, my efforts on Sunday morning did me a good service and put me in step with my true pathway which was not to get hit on the head or shoulder by a slice of white crust from a cheap loaf.

Oh what a day!

GENERAL REPORT

This morning on the way to work I happily counted a variety of dog shits on the pavement and a screwed up used sanitary towel and watched one woman tip a steaming kettle of boiling water on her doorstep and wipe a jay cloth over the wet patch with her foot – poo or vomit i dont know.

Now I am in Chisou a Japanese restaurant drinking Midori and Soda – really a summer time drink – about to eat what looks like is going to be banging!!! All the plates and bowls are so elegant and delicate. In complete contrast to my morning walk.

HAPPY FACE

I’m in Soho and happy. I’m going to buy some chromakey paper. I am going to eat something tasty. I bought someone a present and I can’t wait to give it to them. I am smiling. I have a smiley voice. I had an amaretto macaroon instead of mint and loved it. It’s a great day and this is normal. I am happy.
