A White Palmetto of sorts: agricole blanc, vermouth blanc, mole bitters, orange twist.
A bit thin in texture, some interesting fruit flavors in there (pear first, then mango?), but my unimpressed wife said it tastes a bit like a shoe-repair store, and I think I glimpsed what she was talking about.
I think every rum agricole drink I've had starts shakily but gains a star rating by the time I finish it.
Fried potato and cheese pancake from Six Seasons.
There is a reason that I'm showing you this still in the pan. I knew without a doubt that any attempt to remove it from the pan would not end well. There is a reason you are advised to read a recipe! This one called for a nonstick pan. Missed that part. This is a very well seasoned cast iron pan but it was not quite up to a mixture of cheese, onion and potato. But it was very good and I enjoyed it with some tomato chutney. (The pancake not the cast-iron pan.)
Edited for clarification after I read it through and wondered if I would've broken my teeth on the cast-iron pan.
After 80 days of searing heat, (for Spokane) with no rain, finally Fall weather has arrived. Which for me is a blessing as it's my favorite time of year for cooking. This is the third batch of duck confit I've made so far. This time served with a Cassoulet Bean Stew I came up with. The beans are from our friends at Rancho Gordo.
