Cassoulet in 3 Easy Days

March 27, 2014

The never ending Winter weather has provided one nice side benefit – I’ve not yet tired of comforting meaty stews and braises and casseroles. I’ve made Beef Bourguignon and Indian beef stews and lasagnas and hearty curries, all soul warming dishes meant for chilly nights. But my favorite dish made this season was cassoulet. I’ve […]

November 1, 2012

Dude and I cooked a meal. I bought a pork shoulder and whole belly from Riverview Farms. Above, in perhaps my manliest photo ever (note – blow torch, chef’s knife, hack saw, and beer bottle), I butchered the shoulder. He/she will never dance again. Dude’s kids were appalled.

After some scheduling conflicts, we finally pulled it off a few weeks ago, deciding to cook a little duck. Which ended up being a big understatement. I purchased […]

More Fun with Sous Vide

February 23, 2012

Quick post – I’ve been on the road for work all week, with little time to blog. Geez, real job getting all in the way and stuff. I’ve been cooking a fair amount lately, including having plenty of fun with my sous vide cooker. I did a beef chuck roast for about 40 hours at […]

Duck Confit

January 17, 2011

As someone who claims to be really into cooking, it’s embarrassing to admit I’ve never done a proper batch of duck legs confit. Once I basically did it with the two legs on a whole duck I purchased, but I wasn’t able to render enough fat to fully cover the duck, so I had to […]
