  1. Chinese barbeque pork -- ideas, please

    There's a recipe that's done in a wok. I've seen that doing the rounds here. It's maybe the least time-consuming variation I've seen. I liked the method in the recently-released All Under Heaven, though. The book itself is a worthy addition to most anyone's collection, and the pork appealed to adult and child alike. I served leftovers in a sandwich, just as I would with any kind of roast or barbecued meat. It's not like the flavour profile is too far removed from barbecue.
  2. My stepdaughter went crazy for the World Peace Cookies.
  3. Lucky Peach Power Vegetables

    I've enjoyed everything I've made from it.
  4. "Les Halles Cookbook" by Anthony Bourdain

    I liked the rabbit dish.
  5. The cookbooks of fall 2016

    I've ordered Dorie's Cookies. I picked up All Under Heaven and Power Vegetables! I like the latter. Haven't invested enough time in the former, although I did make the pilaf.
  6. I've caved. Having a step-daughter gives me an excuse to get into baking. All those lunchboxes that need to be filled.
  7. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    The Glee Club from Dead Rabbit: amontillado jacked with yellow Chartreuse, raspberry eau de vie, absinthe and bitters (I used Ango).
  8. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    I put away a couple of Martinis last night. Both based on .75 oz Dolin dry and 2.5 oz gin. I made one with Miller's Westbourne and the other with West Winds Cutlass.
  9. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    A Brooklyn using my freshly-opened Amer Picon. I think I like it more than the Manhattan.
  10. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    A couple more Death drinks. One, One, One and a White Nergroni. The OOO really sings with the Westbourne (a new acquisition).
  11. Amari

    I bought some of the Ango amaro recently. Not a huge fan of this product.
  12. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    A couple of recent drinks: Gin Smash a la Byron -- one of my favourites from the Dead Rabbit book. And two from the beta cocktails book: European Union and A Moment of Silence.
  13. The vermouth, sherry and genever were restocks.
  14. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    I'm having some 10-year-old Longrow.
