I was so happy to be able to combine Week 3 with this month’s Creative Cooking Crew, our first one of 2014! This month our theme was dumplings: any kind from any nation so there was plenty of room for creativity. I decided to follow my ancestral roots for this challenge. One of the most authentic foods you will find in Austrian cuisine are a type of dumpling called knödel. This week we will prepare Austrian Liver Dumplings, one of the most popular knödel dishes.

The Liver Experiment Week 2: Liver & bacon saute with potatoes & parsley

It is time for Week 2 of The Liver Experiment where I will try to acquire a taste for liver. Over a 10 week period I will cook, consume and post my experience about trying to appreciate my food nemesis. First off I want to thank you all for your comments and support after the publication of my first post. Obviously this series will not be to everyone’s epicurean liking but I was very happy to see the encouragement and demonstrated curiosity. I hope you will follow along throughout the whole series.

I am happy to report Week 2 was a considerable success. I actually kind of enjoyed this week’s recipe. I would even say it was the first pretty tolerable liver dish I have ever eaten in my life. I can sincerely say I would make this recipe again. This gives me a lot of hope. This week we will cook a Liver & bacon sauté with potatoes & parsley.
