Dinner at home is always fun when you try to be a little fancy. Frozen shaved foie. I took the leftover chunk of torchon out of the freezer and tried to slice myself a really thin piece to eat and it came out shaved. Said F it and shaved some more to serve at dinner. Happy mistakes. Kinda like my first child.
Deep fried cheese polenta cake. Man I really do take shitty pictures. Oh well. Its a polenta cake with mushrooms on top and gravy underneath.
squid and beans. this one was dry and not so tasty. someone help me make a good squid and beans dish
the main was a cured and smoked pork tenderloin served with a slice of cranberry jelly ha! take that thanksgiving. It came out pretty good. I was aiming at something ham like in flavor and it was close. Tenderloin was cured in salt/sugar/pink salt for a few hours and then smoked in the stovetop smoker before being cooked sous vide for 3 hours. Came out tasty and tender.
We finished with salted caramel ice cream from Bi-Rite. Shit was way too airy and not dense enough. As soon as it hit the room temp bowl it melted. I think they are chincing it at Bi-Rite. A holes.
got new tires on the motorscooter! halfway there.
My moms soy pickles. They look so gross and phallic in the tub. Its such a bittersweet thing to eat whats left of her food. I miss my mom.
and the other night we had uni custard at lot7 restaurant. It was good so I am posting a pic. Topped with uni, ikura, some sort of tobiko and some sort of caviar caviar. Yum-O and out of focus is how I do things on this site!
