If it tasted great and was worth the extra buck, that is really all that ever matters with anything, be it beef, alcohol, women...

But I guess I'll have to try it. Except in will be insanely hard to get here in Copenhagen, and very, very expensive....But it is on the ultame list of things to try....

The meat has a lot of fat marbled in but it doesn't taste greasy as long as it is cooked properly...which is fairly well-done. Also you don't want to eat too much. The picture I posted is around 200grams and that was shared between three people. It was great. I live in Kobe but don't actually eat real Kobe beef very often. There are other varieties of Japanese beef that is also very good and much less expensive.

Mine was made with normal chicken. I've always wondered how it would taste if using an old rooster.

Tonight (Sunday) is 50% bottle night at one of our favorite places. I had seared scallops with mushroom risotto cakes, for the appy. Ribeye special, with pomme frites and seared spinach leaves for the entree. My wife had a romaine salad with bacon lardons, maytag blue cheese dressing, and toasted walnuts for her appy, a kobe burger with truffled potatoes for the side.

We shared a bottle of 2003 nebbiolo, can't remember the maker.

chuck steak, rubbed with salt and jerk seasoning, and two eggs. It ain't no kobe but it gets the job done.

Homemade pizza topped with fresh mozzarella and goat cheese, roasted red peppers, caramelized yellow onion and fresh basil. A mixed greens and spinach salad with dried cranberries and a raspberry vinaigrette. Paired with a Bouchard Pere et Fils 2007 Reserve Bourgogne Chardonnay.

I made duck confit last night with pan fried potatoes. It was okay though after all the praise I heard about this particular dish, I must say I was disappointed. I followed the recipe Michael Ruhlman posted on his blog that used olive oil instead of duck fat for the poaching. Unfortunately, I don't have any other experience with duck confit so I can't even begin to compare my creation with how it's supposed to be, if it's even any different at all.

confit isn't a dish to fuck around with. when done well, it blows the mind.

I've decided I'm going to have to seek out a reputable version at a good restaurant around here before I attempt to make the dish again. I need an idea of what I'm aiming for for my next go around.

I could really use some cassoulet right now.

Meatloaf compliments of my girlfriends mother. Have to say that it's a shame that she can't cook like her mom.
