Critiquing and learning from the programs, periodicals and reference sources -- old media and new -- that feed our passions for cooking and eating well, chronicle the history and culture of food, and teach or amuse us.
I am posting this here (it already appears on the breakfast thread) Because it was first cooked in the instant pot before it was carefully broiled.
But also because nobody’s curiosity was piqued by the object directly in front of the pork. That is a hunk of brass wrapped in foil. There is one on the other side of the pork. It was the only thing I could come up with that would allow me to keep pork steady as I turned it to broil all of the curved sides. Worked like a charm made the pan extremely heavy to lift.
I just tossed out my scraggly batch of fall basil, moved the winter batch up from under the lights and planted a spring batch near the woodstove in the basement.
The keen observer will note a bottle of Prosecco chilling outside for dinner.
In Washington state, Total Wine is the clear winner as to both price and selection. I've also been impressed with the helpful expertise there--I was recently recommended a Reposado tequila there for $25 (before taxes) that is definitely superior to the $50 one I had been buying. You do not get that kind of help from Costco.
OTOH, you don't get free samples of frozen, oversalted, pre-prepared food, or hellacious lines, either!
