    I hate the plating. Something very nineties about it. What restaurant is this?
    The nineties were a bad time for plating indeed. That torchon looks terribly done, IMO, assuming it is torchon.

    I'm sure all of this was very good though and I would have loved to have that meal last night instead of the ikura-don and spider rolls.

    I had a great Panini from a local restaurant. it was very simple great fresh made bread, prosciutto, and provolone. It was incredibly simple and probably the best sandwich I have had in several years.

    Did some snacking with a bottle of wine. The three cool items were the pork belly confit I made a few weeks ago, the salami I smoked several weeks ago, and the fresh veggies I pickled last weekend. Eating all these things I made myself is very gratifying.

    The individual pieces may be tasty but it looks gross all mixed together that way.

    +1. I am definitely not getting a happy feeling in my naughty place...

    A bit of an eclectic dinner. Braised pork bellies, caramelized shallots, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh picked basil leaves, olive oil, balsamic and topped with my pickled veggies to add a little salt. Nice.

    Is there a day where you don't eat pork, particularly pork belly, bacon or pork-based sausage? Even your vegetables often seem to be "enhanced" with bacon chunks...

    Not hating on pork but seems like a lot of it

    Tomorrow night. Having dinner at the local JCC [​IMG] (no shit, btw).

    Last Friday was all oysters on the half shell, cerviche, etc.

    When I cook boring stuff, I probably just don't mention it.

    Annual cul-de-sac Cinco de Mayo party last night. I flew out to the Imperial Valley for Carne Asada and Pollo (chicken) Asada from Kennedy's Market in El Centro Calif. for 80 people. Carne Asada and/or Pollo Asada from either Kennedy's in El Centro or Ramey's Meats in Brawley, Calif is the best REAL Carne Asada and Pollo Asada you will ever have. I have no interest in either market but they do ship, in dry ice, all over this great country of ours. [​IMG]

    I just bought the Blue Ribbon (Bromberg Borthers, NYC) cookbook. I have had their paella at the restaurant. It is not a traditional paella (I think they may use long grain rice) , but it is really good tasting, if you want to tip-toe into paella making.

    If you want to use short grain rice and not make a saffron and seafood risotto, you should really make sure you have an actual paella pan, or it just won't be right.

    So, the long grain is less "authentic" than its shorter brother?

    I didn't cook it. It was at the new restaurant of an old friend. However, I make a fantastic paella. No real tips. It's pretty straight forward stuff.

    Made lunch my major meal today. Garden greens salad with chicken breast, pine nuts, and Gorgonzola cheese.

    Not a sliver of pork!
