Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

I love a good bratwurst. Maybe it's the shape. :)

I grabbed some bratwurst at the store, and managed to find some great fall corn as well. So everything went on the grill. Soak the corn for a few minutes in cold water, and then onto the top rack for about 1/2 hour. I love corn this way because there's no need for those damn corn holder spiky things that I used growing up (when we ONLY boiled our corn - which I never, never, never, ever, never, ever do anymore - roast in the oven, or grill). You simply pull back the husk, slip off the bunch of corn hair (it slides off so easily when the corn is done), and you have a natural handle from the husk! Bathe them in butter and you're good to go!

As for the brats - I sometimes simmer them in some beer to inject a little more flavor. This time I simply plopped them on the grill and cooked until done. I sauteed some onions and peppers to pile on top of the brats. And for finishing touches: coarse stone ground mustard and provolone cheese. Delicious!
