Breaking it up. AKA random food pictures

May 15, 2015

Over the last 5 years, hell over my entire career I have taken food pictures of stuff I have made or experienced and I want to share some of them.
Refreshment This was a cherry limeade. Not just any cherry limeade but one made with sour cherry syrup that was bought from the S&D Polish Store in the strip district. With a little seltzer and fresh squeezed lime and ice it is a perfectly refreshing drink.

Me presenting Dave a seared tuna morsel.
Appetizer Tray
The platter of seared tuna on a rice cracker with wasabi mayo.

Deli Tray
A nice platter of sliced cured meats, I learned from a old chef boss of mine (Matthew Wayland) to shave hard cheese.. Parmesan and drizzle with a really good olive oil. This one had a *gasp* Truffle oil, something which I have noticed being vilified by some chefs recently. Honestly, if you can’t afford truffle but love the aroma there is no shame in this indulgence.

Fruit Tray
My favorite part of these types of treats is the fruit platter. Pick ripe fruit. There is always someone at a party who knows and the others will follow. Nothing worse than a tray of unripe fruit.

Forgotten Cookies
Dave makes cookies for Christmas every year. These are his Meringues.

We tried our hands at making pickles…
Simmering Peaches
Spicy Peach.
Our Entries
These were our entries into a pickle competition.

Lastly, I made southern fried chicken.
Southern Fried Chicken
NO cream gravy, sorry. I was tempted to make red eye gravy. Watching carbs and I took them in the form of the grilled corn and the red beet mashed red skin potatoes.
