    The foie looks perfectly seared.

    I am in need of foie.

    Dots look good if they are extremely controlled, less good when they are a jus. Just spoon a little sauce over the foie. Just my opinion, of course.

    I also tried poaching some in red wine. I ate it with a poached peach. It was nice, but I definitely prefer foie gras seared.


    OK.

    And, as far as the bean salad goes, I did one plate with yellow and green beans, and then a purple bean one with the oil drizzled. I liked the one I originally posted the best.

    mm this may just be the lighting/your camera but some of those colors look really unnatural. and am i the only one who did a bit of a double take (not in a good way) at the red wine vinegar cream?

    The photography looks spectacular to me, certainly in comparison to my own.

    Well Matt's kitchen is perfectly capable of getting a roast to raise 55 degrees during its rest period. Maybe mm's is just perfect for weird lighting.

    I take my pictures right next to a very large picture window that is flooded with sunlight during the day. That is why the color is always so brilliant.

    Then, I roasted a pastured chicken for dinner. Not sure what difference in flavors and texture, if any, a chicken raised on grass has, but this was one of the most delicious chickens I've eaten. The skin got very crispy.
