Here's an old Food & Wine recipe for New Years' Eve...

Warning, I haven't made this yet, but love my old copies of F&W, which I USED to be so pleased with...

Oven-Fried Rice Balls with Gruyere
Active: 30 min; total 1 Hr

Makes about 30 rice balls

Flecked with black pepper and Gruyere, these crusty rice balls are an irresistible hors d' oeuvres. They're great for parties because they are baked rather than fried.

1 tablespoon EVOO
1 medium shallot, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup arborio rice
2 cups water
3/4 cups shredded Gruyere cheese (2.5 oz)
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (1.5 oz)
1/4 cup chopped herbs, such as thyme,basil and oregano
Salt and cracked black pepper
2 large egg whites
1/2 panko bread crumbs

1. Preheat the oven to 450f. Lightly oil a large, rimmed baking sheet. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the shallot and garlic and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Stir in the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the water has been completely absorbed, about 10 minutes. Scrape the rice into a bowl and let cool to room temperature.

2. Stir the Gruyere, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan and all of the chopped herbs into the rice. Season the rice with salt and generously season with coarsely cracked paper.

3. In a medium stainless steel bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until firm peaks form. Stir one-fourth of the whites into the rice to loosen the mixture, then stir in the remaining whites. Roll the rice into 1.5 inch balls.

4. In a shallow bowl, toss the panko with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Dredge the rice balls in the panko crumbs and transfer to the prepared baking shed. Bake the rice balls in the upper third of the oven for 25 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Let stand for 5 minutes, then transfer to a platter and serve.

They suggest a champagne pairing - Savory Gaston-Chiquet let Cru Tradition Carrte Verte Brut NV, which has a high percentage of Pinot Meurier. I'm not big on champagne, but what the heck… If I make it, I'll look for the champagne, too.

Curious: I wonder why stainless steel bowl is recommended to beat egg whites?

Anyone here from Radnor, PA?

Just wanting to check some comparisons to where I live.

Thanks!

50 Reasons for 50 Years… Episode #49

I'd cross post this, but I think not. You'll see some GD discussion going on about this today (Nov 19th).

This episode shows how the due process to acquire suppressed information among Washing, DC journalists led to a Washington Post journalist to author his own book.

Journalist Jefferson Morely took interest as he realized that the release of some new records could tell us something more about this moment. Here's his journey as he worked with academic historians and the JFK Review Board. Here's his approach to find empirical records of what the CIA knew about the assassination. There were CIA cables about Oswald dated BEFORE the assassination. Much was not known to the Warren Commission, including the actions of operational officers with the CIA. Anyone seeking to protect the Agency's interest was of interest to the HSCA. There are at least 295 records that STILL cannot be released for reasons of "national security".

Air force One Getaway, 50 Reasons for 50 Years, Episode 47

Black Op Radio's feature that discusses the black box on AF1 during the Kennedy assassination, missing time, transcripts and research on how examining the full spectrum of the tapes would shed more light on November 22nd…

Political Truth, The Media and the Assassination, 50 Reasons for 50 Years, Episode 46

The distinguishing thing about the paranoid style is not that its exponents see conspiracies or plots here and there in history, but that they regard a "vast" or "gigantic" conspiracy as the motive force in historical events. History IS a conspiracy...

Ever wonder why there is counter to trying to find evidence all these years? This does a good job of explaining why...

Oliver Stone's JFK, 50 Reasons for 50 Years, Episode 45

Oliver Stone's JFK is objectively discussed here. The debunkers of network television seem to miss actual WC testimony when they try to point out what was inaccurately portrayed in "JFK". Aside from some poetic license, which this movie already claimed existed, were the fact that Garrison's based his trial over the Kennedy assassination.

It is clear that the debunkers tried their best, but ignoring actual House Select Committee on Assassination evidence was no way to try to debunk this film.

Black Op Radio again does a fantastic job with this episode...
