  1. As mentioned, seems to be a lot of cross over between flavours and food - I will attempt a list of flavours: - Truffles (white or black, I am not picky!) - Mangoes - Raspberry - Caramelized Onion - Roasted Garlic - Lobster - Crab - Roasted Almond - Figs - Wok-hay-Veggies

    Would love to hear more about your method! They look fantastic. I have tried a few times to do baked onion rings (fries I have down pat) but have had mixed results...

    Pleasure. Though do not blame me for your new obsession or your lighter pocket book 😛 Oh, and that mustard rocks - obviously - it's Canadian! 😁

    Be on the lookout for Reblochon - if you have not had it already.

    Dinner 2020

    It's funny how couples split things up... Total opposite in my house - I do all of the cooking (and shopping - what cook would let someone else shop for them!?) and my wife handles all of the cleaning and laundry.
  6. Ended up making a late addition to our smorgasbord - Was gifted some beautifully large dried porcini, so I re-hydrated a few in hot water and dry seared some shiitake and oyster mushrooms - in went some shallots, young garlic and fresh picked thyme (there was snow on the ground!!!) along with some white wine and the porcini and liquid - reduced mostly, then blitzed with butter and schmeared on toasts. All was enjoyed with a fantastic 2011 Williams Selyem Drake Estate Chard.
  7. NZ is certainly stunning. Great shots and thanks for taking the time to share with us, as always @KennethT
  8. Now that our kids are a bit older (6/4/2) they enjoy sitting around and eating with us (and watching a movie of some sort) As such, the recent tradition continues of nibbles to pick on throughout the night... Made my annual gravlax which is curing away as we speak, along with the prerequisite balsamic/dill/caper sauce. Other nibbles will include: 6 or 7 different cheeses, prosciutto, smoked oysters, pate and (GF) breads and crackers. And good wine.

    Absolutely. Take young spring garlic, place in a mortar and pestle with some coarse salt. Proceed to grind into a paste. Place in a small jar and cover with olive oil. Freeze immediately. Enjoy.

    Latkes - the Topic!

    A stellar batch of Latkes were had last night. Russet potatoes, salt, pepper, a couple eggs - salt at the end before forming - that's it! Golden brown, crunchy goodness. Served with home made apple sauce, cranberry sauce and a whole smoked turkey.
  12. I do not put anything that comes in contact with our food anywhere near products containing SLS or other nasty chemicals!
  13. More like if you are using P&G products you are doing it the wrong way!
  14. And unlike truffles, if you treat them right (aka ethical harvesting/not pulling the bulbs) they will return every....single....year! Speaking of which, I have about 4 months to use up a few freezer ziploc bags of the green gold! Soup might be in order.... And it is oh so fantastic cooked down slowly -
