    Dinner! 2012

    Naw my fish guy had a frozen box of 7 big ones he gave me for $25 so I could mess around. The outer skin of the tail wasn't very firm, a little mealy. Was just interested in ways I could cook um. Shipped live would be the nail in the coffin for food cost in one of my dinners...I wish though

    Dinner! 2012

    I had one at Mugaritz and was interested in cooking them. I live it California so I got some from Denmark. Yeah pretty expensive but I got to mess around for a couple dishes. I'll enjoy them next time when I'm in their natural region.

    Sous Vide Halibut

    I always do just good olive oil, 113 for 20 minutes and I've held it for up to 40 with that temp. You've got a couple days you should test, test, test. Don't be like me and get lazy then stress out because you're actually testing a new time and temp on a group instead of just yourself Edit: This is that time/temp, shiny from the oil, almost looks raw but then it flakes and is moist as all hell. Halibut must be fresh fresh fresh and clean clean clean before in goes in the drink. You know that though.

    Been trying to remember to take pictures when I make test dishes. A little love for Modernist Cuisine, Seared short rib pastrami, brussel sprout sauerkraut, mustard, toasted rye Langoustine, zatar spiced lentils, lobster and uni butter sauce

    You sure as hell get the plating spot on. I wish I could taste some of those dishes they look ridiculous. Could you maybe use the reference if you follow a book? Some of these I'd like to mess around with myself.

    What's in your Japanese spices?
  9. Old school smoke with some cherry wood. 175 for about 30 minutes. Enough to melt the fat, was still moist, I'm proud of my schmeer.

    Wow what a spread, love it
  12. At least the serving size on this bag of pistachios is realistic at 60.
  13. Had some random black cod scraps so made a schmeer with smoked cod, roasted garlic and chives. The day starts strong.
  14. There was a gas heater in my new place. I wasn't about to try and heat a 1600sq/ft loft with one little heater in the corner. So i took it out, put in the cabinate and smoker. The ducting for the heater goes into the next room and out the roof. Just bought a bendable pipe, fixed the bottom of a small punger on the bottom and the smoke just shoots straight up. I'm excited, one of the last things I wanted in my kitchen setup!
  15. Looked for a topic to post this in, figured this would be best. Finally got my indoor rig going.

    Awwwe Ranz.....a little heart I wanna see the inside money shot!
  18. I wish I had a little private chef to cook me breakfast every morning.
  19. I only have one...pistachios. I seriously ate a 1/2 pound bag last night in one sitting. The only food I kinda of go into a trance and when I wake up the bag is empty...

    Dinner! 2012

    My roommate actually made me dinner, this is very weird...an awesome Korean BBQ bowl. Then I messed with a new dish since I got some awesome squid. Charred Monterey Bay squid, celery root, garlic confit, satsuma beurre blanc, watermelon radish and sprouts
