Been a busy week for semi-food porn related stuff. Hence, I’ve forgotten to take pictures of half the stuff I’ve run into. While I get my act together, here’s a bit of food and blacksmithing to hold you over.
Nothing beats simple meat and cheese at the end of the night
The chef’s special for the day. Fennel sausage, more fennel, and argula
Salmon chowder with some puff pastry is to die for. Not to mentioned grilled cheese with proscuitto
The Phil & Seb crew take great care and prine in making their coffee
Couldn’t resist some Serrano and a (overly) sweet mojito while waiting out the storm
Ducked into Ox & Angela to find shelter during a hailstorm
Who doesn’t love delicate meat breaded and then deep fried. So much depth to this dish.

A little parting gift from my Japanese friends. Tasty!
The various stages of Japanese knife making

Nothing beats a simple BLT
Rich and creamy raw meat is what ever man needs
Escaped to the bar while the girls do their girly thing…
All set for a little high tea
Not quite enough to fill me up, but then again, high tea is really just for snacking
This week I had the pleasure of attending the Rouge & White party to raise awareness of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute. It was a great event put on by some of Calgary’s most notable chefs, to highlight the great work that is being done in the province on neurological diseases and damage from strokes and aneurysms, but also to ease the natural deterioration of brain functions. It’s a great charity so check it out!
Also, enjoy the rest of the food porn this week.
Only if carnies could look this good…
Love the grilled cheese at The Fine Diner, and love salad prepared with whole, not shredded lettuce

Calm before the storm, literally, as the hail fell up north…
