There’s a food porn backlog! Firstly I tried some local wagyu for a Japanese pot luck party. Then I made some friend checked, hung out at a taqueria, made my own tortillas, helped Model Milk celebrate its first birthday and then drank awesome cognac with the Hennessy people! It’s been a good few weeks.
For when you need a jolt in the morning
First try at making tortillas at home…
Pretty good, nice and meaty tortilla…
Bringing back pink gin and pith helmets
Perfect for stewing
Who can resist a dog and chili fries?
A nice quick dinner if you’re feeling lazy or simple
Just because we had to…
Nice and tender with bone marrow sauce!
The signature black manhattan
You can’t beat foie
My fobby dining partner…
It’s bacon.. it’s foam… it’s bacon foam!
Happy 1st birthday Model Milk!
This bottle retails for ~$3400, full that is

My tasting flight

A torta… don’t think I’ve ever had a proper one… still don’t know if this is…
Lingua tacos… awesome
Genoa, egg and salsa… Egg sandwiches are the best
Careful control of the temp is crucial
Warming in the oven to maintain their crispiness
Double dipped in buttermilk and breaded
One of the most useful things to have in your kitchen… stock
So the point was to make geometic designs with food….
I did pineapple, and a BLT type thing…
But of course, Pierre won with this awesome Ms. Pac Man
Great marbling and taste, it looks a bit off tho (even tho it wasn’t)
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
Thick cut, house cured bacon. Seriously awesome
New taqueria in town! They’re pretty good, and cheap at $2.25 a taco!
There’s nothing like a little drink to go with your soup in the morning… In this case, ginseng soju
One of my fav Korean dishes. Tasty spicy pork bone soup…
Carnitas tacos! That’s tacos twice in a day for me!
