Recipe: Lamb & Bison Meatballs with Tomato-Chipotle Sauce

Inspired by Tapas Picasso

In last week’s World Fare, I reviewed Tapas Picasso in Hillcrest. Two of my favorite of Chef Loren Villalobos Alsman’s tapas were the meatballs in spicy chorizo sauce and her superlative albacore mousse paté with chipotle. Following an inspiring telephone conversation with Chef Alsman, I decided to pay tribute to her “authorial cuisine” by combining aspects of these two dishes into a Mexican-tinged tapa of my own. ...

Or, what happened to that part of the pig

In CityBeat's Food Issue, I wrote about traveling out to the far reaches of San Diego’s East County and the process of (and lessons learned from) killing, skinning and breaking down a pig. I concluded that:We gave that pig no choice. In that cage, he was already meat. He just didn't know it quite yet. He was born to be meat. Given that reality, we owed it to him to make as little waste of his body as possible, to make use of every last bit of edible meat that we possibly could. Not just the fancy cuts—the celebrated ribs and the other parts with which we're all familiar—but the entire pig, from snout to tail. ...
