    Default City Head Cheese etc

    I was looking at a groupon type offer on a local restaurant named Peanches
    (not a typo) and one of the appetizers offered is:
    "Plate of city head cheese, country pate, liver parfait, ox tongue, with
    seasonal pickles."
    Question: WTH is "city" head cheese and country parfait?
    Observation: This looks like something Sqwertz would have on the menu if he
    had a restaurant.

    Anyway the whole menu is a bit unusual, although they say it changes
    frequently with seasonal ingredients, and this is a "sample" menu:

    The google points to a sausage-making book by the Marianskis. The
    premise is that city folks would not have access to pig heads, so this
    recipe calls for butt or picnic as well as pigs feet.

    Funny menu. What's a yardbird? Chicken?
    'Consuming raw or uncooked items could do your body harm'. Oh. OK.
    and...
    'SWEETIES FROM THE SWEET ONE PASTRY CHEF LOURDES'.

    I eat **** like this all the time at home. Did you see my recent can
    of lamb and sheep tongues?

    City head cheese would probably be a less objectionable form of
    country head cheese - the classic version including lips, brains
    (pork), and tongue. Looks like they use the tongue separately, so
    their version od head cheese is probably just cheeks in their own
    aspic. Cheeks jell up something severe - perfect for making a
    headcheese all by their lonesome - maybe with the stock from their
    other concoctions.

    Their whole menu needs better descriptions. I see the waitdroids
    spending a lot of time taking orders, and getting kinda perturbed or
    impatient having to recite the same things over and over again.

    I looked at the menu at:
    http://www.peanches.com/Menu-summer.pdf

    Not sure if your link was the same.

    Sounds interesting. What is yardbird? Makes me think of robins or
    mourning doves because they're always on the ground.
