Ignore the BTE part.

Just thought I'd share this with you guys. Some basic chocolate brownies topped with a bacon fat and chocolate infused cream cheese frosting and bacon-cashew crumble topping.

When everything is pretty well roasted, add some EVOO, salt and pepper and herns (oregano or basil work best imo) to taste and maybe some stock (depends on how juicy it is already). Blend in batches and return to pot at low heat. slowly add a little cream or half and half until its the color you want. I like to add a little grated parm as well.


There are of course a million variations on this.


Very nice. When tomatoes are in season I'll sometimes roast them on the grill and make a version of this. Adding some jalapeņo and citrus is nice too. When out of season I've been using these lately:




It reduces the tinny taste canned tomatoes sometimes have plus you don't have to worry about the supposed health hazards.

Did you use a frozen duck or did you special order one?


This year for Christmas I ordered a fresh ham from Heritage Foods. I did a rub of kosher salt, sage, orange zest and anise. After roasting I deglazed the pan with some orange juice, reduced and finnished with some butter. It was a pretty damn good porcine feast.

Super simple and deliciious. I just made it yesterday, it was one of my plans for the blizzard, however New York ended up not getting hit hard at all.

Well the Mauviel (thank you poorly described Ebay auction) and Goose arrived at my doorstep yesterday. The lady requested the return of Victorian Holiday Meal from two years ago. So on with the goose and figgy pudding.
