Food to me is all about texture. The wrong texture will destroy a dish, regardless of flavour. Which is why I love cartilage so much. Any kind of cartilage, from any animal - I love it. These are pig ears, a dish that my mother used to make for me when I was a child. Delicious, and my kind of comfort food. Clean the ears, slice thinly, sauté and simmer with oyster sauce, green onion, ginger, and fresh chili peppers. So, so, so delicious, just all love. Stays beautifully firm with that mind-blowing crunch of the cartilage . . . as arousing as food gets.
