Garden Parties - Page 3

post #31 of 90
in honor of this thread, I will submit sometime in the near future, a planned garden party by a cousin in law, where she will attempt to learn how to spit roast a whole pig, including the slaughter of the animal, the design of the roast, etc.

will try to include edited pics of the slaughter of course.

and will bring a watermelon/avocado "cake" to the party.

Try Xantham gum and Gellan gum, sir. Although these are usually blended with other hydrocolloids like locust bean gum or guar gum to obtain optimal rheology. Now paypal me $50 for my shared knowledge!

Speaking of hydrocolloid use and getting this threak back on track, Matt and I ate at Alinea this weekend and were talking about how so many places do that kind of thing wrong. And how people focus so much on making food pretty/beautiful/picture-worthy that it doesn't taste very good. Then you come to this thread and realize that sometimes food is ugly as sin and probably tastes like shit, and you thank God that you don't have to eat that crap.

Grant is putting a version of watermelon cake on his menu.

He's also turning it into a drink for his Aviary bar.

He will likely substitute pine nuts for pumpkin seeds to make it a little classier.
