    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.

    For me, that goes in the category of I like A and I like B, but not A & B together.

    Haven't eaten anything noteworthy, but I was walking with my boys in Portland and came across Gregory from Top Chef. It was odd seeing him in three dimensions. :)

    did a pound of salmon sous vide and served it over a pea mash.

    First time doing fish sous vide. 35min at 122 and then a quick sear to crisp the skin. Was good but I am not sure the results varied much from what I could have done outside of a plastic bag.

    That sounds like the Chefsteps recipe.

    I'm having the same issue. I'm yet to be blown away by my sous vide and still prefer my frying pan

    Everything was excellent. Smoked trout may have been the best.

    Decent wine list with some good, interesting values.

    I'm on a huge infused bison burger kick. I toast wheat buns lightly and grate some cheese, and add something else random into the meat. No ketchup/mustard/toppings afterwards.
