That pork, wow!
Random rental apartment kitchen, so I was lucky to nail the temp so perfectly. The ingredients were the star though. I could post the exact same pic with US supermarket pork and pancetta and it would look great, but just be good. This was really great. The butcher literally said when we walked in, only local small pig here, and they butchered/made it all in house. I almost cheered out loud and did a dance. Wish it were so easy to get good pork and chicken here. The food culture disconnect is just too big :(. Way of life there is one which I really envy where they treasure the local food culture.

(from Rick Bayless)
Red onion
Slice
Rinse in cold water in a strainer
Soak in cold water with a splash of apple cider vinegar (or lime)

It helps with digestion. HRH can't eat them raw, but loves them this way.

I decided to take the time and "grind" my own meat for burgers last night. I went roughly 50/50 chuck and sirloin. I saw Alton Brown use a food processor to "grind" meat for a burger, so that's what I did. They turned out great and, truly, it's not that much more effort. I grilled them over lump charcoal and served on a toasted kaiser bun with mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion. Delicious. Burgers were enjoyed with a 2014 Soos Creek Artist Series...one of the strongest QPRs in quite some time for me.

How did the texture compare to a meat grinder?

Not terribly different. I cut the meat into 1" cubes and partially froze them before chopping, and I went in small batches and cut it pretty finely. I'll be doing it again, if that's any help.

Got some beautiful local asparagus, picked that morning, from Farmer Kaufman at Reading Terminal market, as well as some morels, criminis, and both red and white pearl onions, and thawed two 14 oz veal chops from D'Artagnan. I know others have had issues with their veal chops, but we have always had good luck.

Using a little of Robuchon's recipe and a little of Keller's recipe and a little of our own ingenuity, we poached the onions separately to preserve their color, in water/bay leaf/thyme/peppercorn with a touch of red wine vinegar for the red ones and white wine vinegar for the whites. Crisped some Benton's bacon to extract the fat, which was left in the pan to sear the chops. We used a few dried morels to extract a concentrated liquid which we combined with some homemade chicken stock to poach the fresh morels, which we ultimately added to a cream sauce. Pan seared the chops along with some fresh thyme and a halved head of garlic; then while they rested, we deglazed the pan with whisky and sauteed the crimini mushrooms, finally adding the steamed asparagus and poached onions to the fricasee. Added the drippings from the resting chops and the chops themselves back into the pan to warm before serving.

For some reason, my pictures got rotated and I'm too lazy to work on turning them.

Sometimes a good rose, some simple cheese and charcuterie, and a good baguette is as fine a meal as one can ask for. Nicely done, Nola.

Roasted a chicken, small white potatoes, and asparagus. Rubbed with Israeli olive oil, salt and pepper, rosemary from my garden placed under the skin. Just simple and delicious. Chicken, potatoes, and asparagus all purchased yesterday at our farmer's market. Enjoyed it with a Taittinger "La Francaise" Champagne.

Until this weekend, I hadn't ever attempted smoking anything. I've got a small house and a relatively small yard, so I really only have room for one outdoor cooking device: my Weber kettle charcoal grill. Simple and functional. However, I was jonesing for some ribs and thought, "What the hay...let's try it." I'm glad I did, but I can tell I'll really need to work on my skills because there were good, but far from great. I will say, though, that I had to smoke the ribs then take the off, put them in the fridge and come back to finish them that evening due to a very busy weekend of kid-chauffeuring. I rubbed them 24 hours in advance, then smoked with soaked hickory chips. I opted for no sauce. I also decided to caramelize them on the grill but would likely skip that next time.

Next time try applewood, much better with pork IMO.

Grilled a bison steak over campfire coals (in a fire ring, not real camping). I was disappointed that mushroom hunting yielded nothing, but just being outdoors as winter and spring kept changing places several times per hour dominated any food choice.
Sorry, no pictures.

Tonight I have Akaushi Prime hanger steak marinated in Israeli olive oil, balsamic, garlic, pepper. Will salt before pan grilling.

Mashed potatoes, and a spring salad of little gems, watercress, tarragon from the garden, tiny carrots sliced thin, 3 colors of radishes sliced thin, Persian cucumber. All at the ready when I feel like eating. Watching the Red Sox, of course.

From the pinot tasting thread. Salmon bellies (in pic) and collars (no pic). I put the oven on max and lay the salmon skin up over a few chop sticks or skewers on a rack until the skin is super crispy. King salmon season has had a great start this year in central California. Get it if you can.

I just made an asparagus lasagna from the April 1992 publication of Gourmet Magazine. Goat cheese, instant lasagna, lemon peel, roasted asparagus, chicken stock, parmesan. Covered in heavy whipped cream, which I made using my mother's standard mixer, which she received as a wedding gift in 1942. So a lot of good food and nostalgia hanging around here.

I made this salad as well as a Lapin a la Moutarde, though with chicken-shaped rabbits.

Drank 09/12/15 Gravette De Certan.

Making Brazilian shrimp with cheese and tomato sauce. A "recipe" that my good friend Giselda would make for us when I lived in Boston. She mostly would not allow me in the kitchen, and she could put on more food and more quickly than anyone I ever knew.

But basically, spread cream cheese in the pan, make a spicy tomato sauce, put peeled and deveined shrimp into the sauce, briefly, put it on top of the cheese, and then toss it in the oven until it bubbles and shrimp are firm. Serve with rice.

Tex, I was telling someone today that this is about the meanest thing one could say, knowing I posted recently about losing my beloved Gato Negro, "Blackie." You are one sick pup - get some help.

Merrill, I'm pretty sure it's just the name of a taco restaurant or truck.
