    -Cold beet "salad" - cold grated boiled beets, olive oil, salt and garlic with some goat cheese on the side.
    -pan fried steak.

    Class B compared to you Class A guys...I cook maybe once every two weeks.

    About a week ago, took about six pounds of Niman Ranch pork belly. Rubbed it with black pepper, cinnamon, allspice, crushed bay leaves, fresh thyme, and Balinese sea salt. Soaked that in sancerre for a day. Then, made that into a confit with half rendered pork fat and half duck fat.

    Removed the confit from the fat yesterday evening, sliced it into fairly thick slices, and on to the BBQ they went until both sides were crispy.

    Served that over shredded cabbage braised in chicken broth and a bottle of ice cold 98 VC Grande Dame.

    Not bad on a cold night.

    I actually went to the grocery store today (rarity) and stocked up on stuff. Going to make chili tomorrow or Friday, so just had one of my favorite sandwiches for dinner. Cracked pepper turkey, Vermont cheddar, lettuce, sundried cranberries, olive oil on multi-grain sourdough. I bought a small loaf so I had two sandwiches. Just made some Ghiradelli chocolate chip brownies. Life is good. [​IMG]

    So, I told my director of F&B I was out of foie. He came to my office this afternoon with a present. Any guesses what it could have been? That's a full size Global sashimi knife, for perspective purposes.

    Had a nice order from igourmet come in. I cannot recommend these folks enough. Get the overnight shipping. At $20, it's a bargain.

    Some nice blues in there, some washed rinds, and goat and sheep milk. Most of them are French or from Holland (Beemster).

    Browned some veal shoulder (bought cheap, on sale), sauteed a whole lot of thinly sliced red onion, added equal parts chicken stock and beer to cover, simmered it all for a couple of hours, and seasoned with salt and pepper. Ate it with a chunk of baguette to sop up the sauce and a green salad afterwards. Drank an americano while it cooked and, obviously, beer with the meal. An OK weeknight meal.

    Nice spread there. Not sure which Beemster cheese you ordered but I am a big fan of Beemster X.O. When compared to some other online gourmet shops, the Igourmet.com prices appear to be fairly reasonable.

    I ordered both the Beemster X.O. and a very aged Beemster. Five years aged! I plan to try that one next weekend.

    Afternoon snack of 150 grams of 24 month jamon iberico de bellota (with the little pocket money I had left over after this, dinner had to be an $8 hainese chicken platter!)
