1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Ya but I can just imagine the eye rolling as you're going there. Also I don't want to sully my sort of Roald Dahl mental image of you so I'm just going to pretend that I didn't read that and say to myself that you're joking.

    Wish I was the photo taking type because I have a hunk of beef shank here that looks like it actually came from a T-rex.

    I have a very late dinner tomorrow night (10pm) so I am going to eat it for lunch. It's times like this that I'm glad I have a tiny little Le Creuset that I can braise things for one.

    You think Matt is a self-loathing Jew?

    No. His is a unique brand. Completely proprietary..cannot be reverse engineered or understood according to a more standard idiom such as the one you describe.

    Patricia Neal was one of my favorite actresses. A Face in the Crowd was so ahead of its time.

    I can cook, man, I swear.

    yes, you can. Happy to attest.

    But I agree you'd be best FOH.

    For those interested in sous-vide, but hesitant to invest any money in to it, try the stovetop method. I've done just a few things and have had great results. Obviously there is a bit less control, so you have to pay attention, making the long soaks a bit more difficult.

    I like building stuff, so I might try the build-your-own immersion circulator that kwilk posted somewhere from wired magazine. Budget for that was about $100.

    FWIW, I would make an excellent FOH person. Most nights.

    You could build it with your boy and give him a chance to use the soldering iron.
    I built the one out of Make Magazine. Works like a charm.
    I'd rather eat at your house than the publican, and I think the publican is the ham fisted version of what you like to eat.

    Maybe you and matt should open a restaurant... you run the charcuterie/lounge/gastro pub that sells a bunch of fatty selections like duck/pork belly/braised everything/sous vide ribeye/and sausage while Matt is the judgmental self loathing chef in the small place upstairs for the fancy people.

    Manton will run FOH, judge everyone's tailored clothing and after service will tourne a bunch of vegetables in the hope that one day matt will approve and let him work in the kitchen, his true desire. You will also have the most well appointed bomb shelter of any restaurant in the country. In order to ensure that Matt doesn't lose his special spice for life, Manton will secretly ensure that only white between between the ages of 30-55 from the Bay Area are allowed to eat at the restaurant.

    Conne will be the one in the bar running up an absurd tab entirely on his credit card, ruining his personal finances but providing the steady cash flow that you guys would need for the crucial first couple of years of running your place. And artisan fan will be the crazy bearded asshole outside with some obnoxious sign.


    Thanks for including me you stupid fucking piece of shit.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't a certain budding culinary star say part of the reason he left a well known Healdsburg restaurant was due to this technique being overused?

    I said I didn't like working somewhere that only did sous-vide. But a piob and iammatt restaurant would not be like that.

    I am now truly regretting not picking up that SVS for $100 a couple months ago, even though my oven would have to have been removed in order to accommodate it. Thanks guys.

    You would also need a torch too. Man, that's just so much fun to use.
