    All this scrambled egg talk has me craving some pretty badly now. Need to find nearest restaurant where white people breakfasts are served, in this land of austerity.

    Breakfast: Boston Cream, single single [​IMG] Lunch: Ate at Duck Fat in Portland ME. Cool little place, alcohol prices are a little high, food isnt priced too bad. Beef tongue reuben and their signature duck fat fries with thai chili mayo. [​IMG] [​IMG] Best fries I've ever had. Probably going back later for their poutine.

    Wiener/Viennese Schnitzel (damn they shrink so much... anyone knows what to do against these black spots? guess they come from the breadcrumbs that "detach" from the coating & burn in the fat?!)

    Panna Cotta (could have spent some more time in the fridge but was just okay) with (lots of) rasperry sauce (non-strained)

    b1os: you have to flatten the meat more cause that one looks a bit thick, and the black spots are maybe there cause the oil was too hot. Du musst sie ordentlich klopfen bevor Du sie in die Pfanne haust! [​IMG] p.s. I like Hamburg, I spent some time there in my childhood. Grüße aus Wien!

    p.s. the traditional side-dish for Schnitzel is cucumber salad, nowadays we always eat potato salad with it, maybe a bit of lemon and never- as I have seen it done in Germany- capers.

    Looks lovely, though I am not a huge salmon fan. Is that raw?

    Yes. I poured just a bit of lemon juice over it before eating.

    Thanks.

    It was very delicious. Even if you don't like salmon, I'd recommend buying some--very fresh--and trying a raw preparation like that. Otherwise, I don't cook much with salmon, either.

    M&M, your presentations have gone from 0-100 in four seconds flat. Looks great.

    Thanks. I really appreciate that. I don't know what it is--it might be the white china--but I went away for a month and didn't cook once for over 30 days. Perhaps I was just starved to come back to cooking, and presentation, in a new way.

    The meat was tenderized to about 0.12-0.22 inch (3-6 mm). So not really too thick. It might look "thick" b/c of the coating. Also, the oil wasn't too hot. Was between 302° and 338° all the time - max is 356°. So no smoke or so.
    p.s. the traditional side-dish for Schnitzel is cucumber salad, nowadays we always eat potato salad with it, maybe a bit of lemon and never- as I have seen it done in Germany- capers.
    Actually we/I wanted to do a cucumber-potato-salad. Unfortunately I bought starchy potatoes instead of "normal" ones... [​IMG] Never been to Wien yet, but heard it's a nice city - isn't it he most livably city in the world? [​IMG]
