So who do we know who is getting seriously into charcuterie right now and lives somewhere in farm country? Two people come to mind - Alan Patric or Chris Hennes.

don't see any of those happy cows.  though that is beautiful bacon.

Plus I'm thinking that those mountains in the background look a bit more like low, rolling Eastern US type mountains than higher, pointier Western US type mountains.

At any rate, that chunk of pork belly definitely grabbed my attention too. :wub:

Me, too, but only if we are talking aolut this being a photo "in real time".

snowangel, is this a current photo or not?

If not, I can make a million guesses. But, if it is, where else has that kind of green on April 4?

Assuming it's UK plus experimenting young'uns in the Chinese forum, we get Prawncracker who's in Birmingham.

Oops...Prawncracker's doing the siu yuk, and origamicrane is doing the roast duck? Or vice versa? I vote for whichever one is the siu yuk king.

I look on these glimpses into new-found friends' lives AS presents, and look forward to every one.

And re-read old favorites from time to time. The best re-gift there is.

I haven't been around enough to be able to make even an uneducated guess, but I'm looking forward to finding out who it is. This person and I have quite a few cookbooks in common.

A new foodblog will begin next week, just in time for the beginning of summer. Here's a preview.

Probably not too difficult to guess the location:

Well, I'm not real well-travelled, but based on the street signs and automobile types, I'd guess we're still in the U.S.

ETA: My guess is that is the New York Washington Square arch.

My money is on gariotin! Anyone who is going to feature some cheeses is a gouda choice in my book!

I just want to know what it all IS---I want it to be grapes in a port sauce, honey (lavender---do I see blossoms?), and poached quince would be nice, but it's not quite the right color. Candied orange in syrup, maybe?

I won't begin to try to name the cheeses.

Oh, it's totally the Washington Square Arch. In fact, if memory serves me right, the photo POV is looking southbound down 5th Avenue into the north side of the park--a particularly lovely way to approach the arch, and the park.

No clue about the blogger, but that snippet of counter and woodwork reminds me strenuously of certain older East coast apartment/kitchen interiors I have known. :biggrin:

(I was totally understanding--and patient--about the blogging hiatus, but there's no denying I'm glad to see a new blog on the horizon. I must confess this has become my all-time favorite feature of eGullet.)

I agree with NYC, but the piece of paper (red and white) on the right side of the second photo certainly looks like a chopstick wrapper. ????
