I am making ham steak for this Sunday’s dinner. Miriam requested cauliflower and Jan loves Brussels sprouts. I had thought to make two separate dishes, but as I was looking at recipes on-line I saw that several combined these vegetables. For me ham calls for Southern (U.S.) cooking and it is not a Southern recipe if it doesn’t have bacon.

I wanted a side dish to go with my Chinese steamed chicken. Jan suggested one of my cheesy cauliflower dishes. While those are popular in my house, they are not very Chinese.

Jan’s first fieldwork was with the Kwinti Maroons of Suranam. To follow up on the records of this people she had to spend some time searching the colonial records in Holland. While she was there she fell in love with Leyden cheese, which is a Gouda cheese with cumin seeds.
