Minutes of the Organ Meat Society, Five-Course Dinner at Hospoda
Course 3: Beef Hearts With Bacon Sauce and Dumplings -- This thin stew, powerfully flavored with minced bacon and shot with paprika, was to be ladled over sliced, steamed dumplings, something like northern Chinese bao. The heart was tender and not particularly fibrous, and the dumplings delighted one and all.
Course 4: Fried Rabbit Livers With Tartar Sauce -- Who knew that rabbit livers were so large? Or that they'd taste so good when crumbed and fried? The Society generally agreed that this was the best dish of the evening, and we thought the notably mild livers would make a spectacular hero sandwich, especially with the homemade tartar sauce served on the side.
Course 5: Smoked Beef Tongue With Pickled Mushrooms and Potato Puree -- We were almost too full to approach the tongue, but we did and found it silky smooth and smoked as much as good Texas barbecue. A thoroughly worthwhile dish, however, and the tiny white pickled mushrooms formed a nice flavor contrast.
