We invited Cooking MN over to try our hands at making tamales. We also learned to make Pamonhas de Norte, a sweet Brazilian tamale.
We cooked a lot of good food that month but a favorite had to be this Miso Glazed Salmon.
We fulfilled one of our cooking resolutions & made Duck Confit. We used the method from Ad Hoc at Home & then turned it into a Pizza & a Warm Lentil Salad.
We celebrated the Olympics with an opening ceremonies party where guest brought food from around the world. We made Piragi from Latvia & Potato-Stuff Parathas from India.
We discovered that chai makes a pretty amazing brine for chicken & a lot of you agreed.
We also entered the Eating YOur Words contest with our homemade Polish Sausage.
We grilled a chicken under a brick & there was a little controversy about whether or not we were ruining it that way. Our results were fantastic & we heard of few of you had the same juicy results.
Later in the month we made little piggies of ourselves at a Pork Belly Class at Corner Table with Scott Pampuch. We even discovered we liked salad with pig's tongue.
We ate our way through New Orleans for our birthdays in May visiting John Besh & Emeril restaurants.
I made my first ever cheese soufflé & figured out how to make it just for one.
We started the canning season with our first try at mustard. We made two versions, Garlic Scape and Champagne Thyme.
The end of June saw us at our first Tour de Farm. What a wonderful day enjoying fresh farm meats & produce, cooked without electricity, in a beautiful setting.
