I haven't tried it, but beaver meat is extremely fatty (as you might expect).

1. My own smoked brisket with caramelized onions and home made mole sauce (which includes chocolate).
2. Thick cut apple wood smoked bacon.
3. Uni at Sushi Yasuda (or fatty tuna if they have no good uni)
4. Whole lobe Fois Gras marinated in a Port wine reduction.
5. Custom ground Flannery burgers with 25% dry aged beef ends and 25% Waygu Fat Blend to balance off the dryness of the beef ends.
6. My own home ground lamb burgers with home ground Ras el Hanout and the secret technique taught to me by the Executive Chef at the Hamilton Princess in Bermuda.

So what if I have trouble counting. You want to object to one of those choices?

There is a place, literally on the Mediterranean between Almeria and Aguadulce, called La Gruta. http://www.asadorlagruta.com/salones.html Built into natural caves. Their Cabrito, Lechal and Cocinillo are exquisite. It is interesting too that the owners brother owns the adjacent restaurant above the caves which is probably my favorite restaurant of all time called El Bello Rincon https://www.bellorincon.com/index.php/es/galeria It is seafood only. He is the one that makes the Gallo Pedro, a spiny rock fish that they filet, lightly dredge, fry and serve with zucchini fries and a hollandaise sauce with wild fennel. If you're ever in the area, go.

Fresh shelling peas are amazing, perhaps my favorite food. I think that fresh Peas, white rice and Sancerre is one of the greatest (and simplest ) wine pairings out there. Especially good with F Cotat...
