    I'll give ya' Innes bleedin' Empanada's...

    Here's Gordon f#¤%in' Ramsay's recipe for:

    Penguin a' l'orange.

    [​IMG]


    Kitchen utensils:

    One Dirty Great big meat cleaver

    Stainless steel frypan or wok, pre-heated to 400 degrees celcuis (or somethin' farren-f"#¤in'-height for you bloody yanks! :scratch)

    One Cuisine Master KTM of either single or twin cylinder construction*.With final drive ratio that allows 120 kmh minimum top speed is optimum and preferably with a wave style front brake disc and no cover.

    *Avoid using two stroke; unless you are looking to obtain a "smokey" flavour... though this is best suited to the BBQ'd "rack of Penguin" (see below).

    Ingredients:

    One moderate sized penguin (of 2 -3 kg) is best, yeah?!. Fairy penguins can be used (substitute for recipe to either spatch cock or pheasant under glass) but for a "real mans meal" you can do a beautiful grilled rack of Emperor penguin on the BBQ... (just make sure you've got yourself an LC8 Cuisine Master to take on one of those big b¤astards!)

    Virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic
    One beef cube stock
    One half cup of white wine vinegar
    Three table spoons brown sugar
    1/2 cup grand marnier
    1 finely grated orange peel rind
    1/2 cup orange juice
    100 grams finely chopped dried apricots.

    Preparation:

    Carefully butcher and dress the lil' f#¤%er using the KTM cuisine art. Set at 120 - 130 km/h for best results, ensuring to seperate the head from the torso, just behind the neck, yeah?!
    Squeegy off the sand and seaweed before taking home from the beach for plucking and dressing, yeah?!.

    Fillet the penguin breast, and slice into mouth sized portion medallions yeah?! Be sure to save the flippers wings and beak... just ideal for making "happy feet" soup (see recipe on out next program). :D

    Get your fry pan nice 'n hot, in with a splash of olive oil and the crushed garlic cloves and sauteé the penguin medallions. not too long, yeah... or they'll end up chewy - like Demi Moores nipples... then gently remove the medallions to the side on some kitchen paper... okay?!

    Next, into the hot wok go the white wine vinegar, the brown sugar and cube stock; when it's reduced and bubbling, in with the grated orange rind, apricots and let simmer for just a minute before adding the orange juice and grand marnier, yeah! Let reduce for two or three minutes into a zesty citrus/wine sauce, then pop in the penguin medallions to finish, sea-f#¤%in'-salt 'n ground pepper to taste... DONE! :D

    Serve with a crisp green peppers/roccola sallad with ceasar dressing for a summer dish, OR oven baked potatoes and parsnip with corrainder for a heart winter meal.

    Oh... an' you can tell Innes to bash her fr#ggin' Empanada's up her bleedin' backside!

    This is Hell's Kitchen... bye! :boid :D

    QUOTE: PackMule:
    Re: Annie, I read a blog entry that said she blew up her motor on stage but somehow made it out and they'd be replacing it tonight. Is that current info?



    From the swedish secret service:

    I believe Annie got in (way after the final control closed), so under the rules of (make it to the bivvy by dawn, kit up and go again), she handed in her card, will be issued with a maximum time (fixed penalty) for LEG 11 and start again today.

    The time penalty will put her a way's further down the list... apparently last night she had multiple mechanical drama's including a bike that was over heating (she proceeded slowly and stop on a number occassions to fill with oil; so it did not cough itself to death terminally) and got in very late.

    It sounds like a real Si Pavey type fingernails and teeth, claw your way to thye finish line by whatever means necessary effort.:eek1 If you ever want to know what it takes to finish (multiple) DAKAR's as a privateer... these two are as good a reference point to start with, as any! :clap:clap:clap

    Yah... bad stage for me today as well :cry Started with a 'pooter screen wot sez "insert system disc." :huh Great! A couple of hours of utilities and stuff :cob got things back to working again. Dunno for how long, though.. we are getting late in the race but the HD may not last. Marathon Class... no swapsies :lol3 Once running.. faced with over a thousand posts to read :eek1:eek2 so Waaaaaay behind the pack already :cry
    After a short but determined effort to make up time on the leaders, the washing machine quit (after 20 years) shoulda changed the motor as a precaution at the rest day :lol3 So several hours out of the day finding a new machine and doing the swap and getting back into the race.

    Finally.. I have made it to the Biv, only to be faced with going out again in a few minutes :yikes

    Right... onwards through bleeding eyes and sore finger (f5) to the next stage. :clap

    Cheers to all those who built the thousand posts and the info contained within :deal

    :freaky

    Regarding missing waypoints, timing WP's and WPM's:

    There are a lot of waypoints on the GPS's for the pilots to pass by. The ones harder to find are the WPM's. These are the ones which the GPS will only direct to if the rider is in a vicinity of 800 meters.

    AFAIK, the timing waypoints ASO gives us F5'ers (WP1, WP2...) are just timing aids to allow us to follow the race live and have nothing to do with the WPM the pilots have to search.

    A pilot having clocked all timing waypoints just means his Iritrack has worked all the time and that he was on the correct track at the timing place.

    A pilot that doesn't show WP's times may have colected all the WPM's and won the stage.

    And a pilot who has shown all WP's timing may have missed a WPM and get a penalty in the end. I believe that was the case of Faria who got 2h penalty on stage 11.

    ASO collects the data from each pilot's GPS on arrival to the bivvy, and only then it is known who missed WP , who speeded and so on.
