I'm Anthony Bourdain's last supper
For those who thought about the riddle or more like the puzzle, the answer is Roasted Bone Marrow. Nic who recently had this in Singapore, managed to guess what the rings were - emptied bones after the marrows have been dug out. Big pat on his back!
We found bone marrow selling in delicious ingredients at Dua Residency, hence we bought them and decided to have a very decadent meal at home. These sinful fellas (also known as Anthony Bourdain's last supper, after he ate at Fergus Henderson's restaurant St John) is usually paired with a parsley caper salad per Henderson's recipe. Mine was just based on the Christmas issue of Appetite. I even came across an even more decadent recipe from Michael Ruhlman's blog - fried bone marrow! That sounds very good but a little more work. Am not sure if delicious ingredients still stocks this and whether you can get them from the butchers though but I would think it is possible, since I see sup tulang places having this around.
