What IS That Stuff?

Many people will be happy to tell you that I am not au courant on a lot of stuff, including food.

So tell me:  what in Hell IS this stuff?

First lady Michelle Obama enjoyed a lovely evening at Co Co. Sala on F Street on Monday night. A Yeas & Nays source tells us she dined with seven friends for dinner and, of course, dessert -- which featured an edible chocolate sculpture and house-made artisanal chocolates by Chef Santosh Tiptur. We're told Obama's favorite savory was Chef Tiptur's Moroccan Swordfish Sliders with chermoula marinade, fennel salad, aged pecorino and hazelnut coffee dressing.

I get swordfish and chocolate-and fennel.  But not chermoula, nor pecorino.

Whatever happened to anchovy pizza?

Pocorino is a type of Parmesan cheese. Chermoula has me stumped, too.

Allow me to look it up for you ---

Chermoula or charmoula is a marinade used in Algerian, Moroccan and Tunisian cooking usually used on fish or seafood. It is often made of a mixture of herbs, oil, lemon juice, pickled lemons, garlic, cumin, and salt. It may also include onion, fresh coriander, ground chili peppers, black pepper, or saffron.

That woman is such a ignorant snob...

This fat ass black hypocrite is telling us how to feed our kids?!

All the while stuffing her thunder thighs for the winter on taxpayer nickels at chi chi chez nous?!

Two of the most useless pieces of dogshit this country has ever experienced.
