Mikado - Vincent Price

70 mins (prep 10, cooking 60)
14 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is an adaptation of a recipe from the Victorian American volume of Vincent Price's collection, "A National Treasury of Cookery," which I recently acquired. As I was looking through the book, this recipe caught my eye because I am an unabashed Gilbert and Sullivan fan. :) As the G&S show of "The Mikado" opened in 1885 at the Savoy Theatre in London, I imagine that this dish (which is rather not very Japanese, but ah well) must've been a Victorian homage to the production. It is a dish I can easily imagine a Brit in India in the 19th century enjoying. :) As far as how it tastes - it's delicious! It's kind of like a combination between Chile Verde and curry. It's not pretty when it's done, but it IS very tasty. It's even better then next day, as leftovers, when the flavors have had the chance to meld in the refrigerator!
