    finished version

    That looks incredible.
    crispy pork tacos with fresh guacamole and salsa fresca

    And so does this.
    Last night started off with foie for me. [​IMG] Here is it about to go into a blistering hot cast iron fry pan with some unsalted butter in it:

    [​IMG]

    Then we had some cured meat we brought back from San Fran, and one of my thuringers, sliced and cold with pepper mustard aioli. Add to that some stinky cheeses, a few other cheeses, some roasted red pepper spread, bottle of wine and sliced baguette [​IMG]

    Happy Piob.

    Tonight will be eggs with chorizo.

    Jesus Fucking Christ that's a big chunk of foie. If you were a restaurant, you'd be open for like 3 hours before going bankrupt.
    Dinner: We started it off by enjoying some munchies: serrano ham, prosciutto San Daniele, rosette de Lyon, smoked scallops, smoke albacore tuna. Then I cooked a pretty massive piece of wild, line-caught Red Spring Salmon along with asparagus, red peppers and shiitake. Washed down with a Gewurztraminer. Good times.
    Was this "the dinner?" How'd it turn out?

    Zach, it's really easy. You just need to have the space in your fridge to hold the legs for however long you want them to sit in the fat--- usually at least a month.


    And despite all the recent additions to this thread that are awesome, I'm going to be eating the best tonight. Taking my gf to Cyrus for dinner tonight. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It was the end cap to a lobe. Celebration from finding out I'm not making my own personal foie gras [​IMG]

    Hope you have a great time tonight. Well, how can you not? Are you doing the pairings? Caviar?

    It was. It went very well. Thanks for your assistance -- I made a basil vinaigrette with white wine vinegar and canola oil as you had suggested. Big success. Check PM for more details.

    Enjoy your meal with the girlfriend tonight!

    Hell no, no pairings or caviar. It's a huge stretch for me to just sit for dinner instead of eating at the bar. As a general rule of thumb, anyone working at a really nice restaurant probably can't afford to eat there. [​IMG]

    More importantly, what will you be wearing?
