Holiday Giveaway: Zingerman's Praise the Lard Gift Box

Pork is how i picked up my wife 10 years ago. We were at a party, and were grabbing a plate in front of a ham and i started talking about my love for ham. She liked ham as well and then I started talking about pork chops, bacon, ribs, sausage and how i carry fatback around in my pocket (it was 98 when emeril was still cool, ok) and she thought i was rather disturbed but it kept the conversation going and we ended up talking throughout the night. We closed with the best kiss ever and have been inseparable since. Pork has given me a wonderful wife of 9 years and whenever i'm in trouble i always start cooking bacon...

Cook the Book: 'Mario Batali Italian Grill'

a proper homemade rub with toasted cumin, chilis, salt, brown sugar and some herbage

Delicious Mangosteens: Better Than a Hot Fudge Sundae?

probably the best fruit i have ever had - you don't have to cut them open, just kinda work thru them with your thumbs and eat the goodness inside. They are kinda like a lychee without the cloying sweetness and are the perfect "cool" to the "heat" of the durian - it is all about balance.

only had them in KL, but they are well worth a try..

The Cartoon Kitchen: Celery Root Purée

love the celery root, but prefer to add milk to the boiling water - it seems to coax out some more flavor.

John McandyCaine - candy cane ice cream - tastes alright but the fundies hate it.
