Doing a complete kitchen remodel, so it's been mostly eating out for the last few weeks.  Last night I was finally able to get some grilled NY Strips and Asparagus at home.  I miss being able to cook at home...

I was smoking salmon and made a plate with Jamon Ibireco, OG Kristal gouda (wow cheese of the year so far), some Reggiano and olives and it was so good and satisfying with a 1/2 bottle of Carlisle James Berry syrah, I left the salmon a the rack to cool and use for lunch salads this week.

Despite the snow yesterday, I was sitting on some Neapolitan dough with a 60 hour cold ferment I had to use or freeze.  So I made pizza yesterday in the wood fired oven outside, in the snow.  It was delicious. 

Smoked porchetta, potaotes and cesar salad. Went to the effort of sous-videing the potatoes with rosemary, garlic and an obscene amount of duck fat to see if they would confit nicely and get infused with the flavour throughout before a quick pan roast to finish.  They were no different than if you just parboiled then roasted with the duckfat/rosemary/garlic - just took longer.
