I enjoy cooking. I would be the one cooking in my house, not the woman. Haven't dated a woman that was great at cooking yet either.

you have to be careful with wagyu served in the states. 99% of it is domestic wagyu which is crossbred with angus. purebred wagyu from japan is hard to come by so you gotta ask the server if you see it on the menu. the difference is astronomical. you gotta at least try real wagyu once.

Oh without question! I've had the opportunity to try both the imitation and the real thing, and the imitation definitely does not compare! Granted, I do think imitations are appropriately priced. It's certainly better than ho-hum, domestically raised cows but noticeably worse than real Kobe beef.

I've had real Kobe at Tom Colicchio's "Craftsteak" in Vegas and IIRC it was something like $240/6 oz. The imitations that I've had generally cost about half as much (~$100/6oz).

However, I have heard of instances where restaurants will try and dupe the customer into thinking that he or she is ordering real Kobe beef when it's just an imitation, but they'll charge as though it's real Kobe beef, so I definitely agree you have to be careful!


Dinner today -

Roasted red bell pepper and ginger chimichurri soup (amuse bouche). Pork belly with fried mint and diablo glaze. NY Strip with onion soubise and Texas escabeche. Feta cheesecake with various nuts and honey.







http://www.thecarillonrestaurant.com/

This place used to have the deal of the century. 3 courses for $29.99 (And I'm talking about 3 full sized courses as you see above)! It was almost criminal. Since then they've wised up and increased the price to $50/3 courses or $75/6 (smaller) courses which is still a pretty good deal. For any austinites our there, carillon serves probably the best pork belly in Texas, so getting the pork belly is a must.

God damnit one picture always comes out side ways. Oh well

Oh man it was wonderful! It felt like a slightly more modern take on traditional cheesecake, but it tasted just as good! The crust was phenomenal and I loved the variety of textures.

By the way for the people who mentioned cooking at home - do any of you guys know how to make a quick and dirty parmesan risotto?

Risotto is probably one of my favorite comfort foods but restaurants generally charge astronomical prices for what I perceive to be a relatively simple and pedestrian dish.

I've recently discovered some pretty good "boxed" risottos but I feel like I could make a higher quality product from scratch with just a bit more effort.

I'm mostly worried about how to make the sauce. It's my understanding that a proper risotto usually requires home cooked stock (chicken or beef), but I don't have ready access to chicken or beef bones to make a proper stock.

What do you guys do for risotto?

I made lettuce wraps for dinner tonight, filled with shredded radishes, shredded carrots, homemade pico de gallo, avocados, and steak. I also made chipotle sauce. The pic doesn't really do it justice, but these are very flavorful, and with nine different vegetables, and minimal meat, they are very healthy as well...

Thanks man, yeah I eat variations of this a lot, it's a good way to lose weight, or maintain a healthy weight, because it's mainly just raw vegetables... Eating Like this I have lost 77lbs since April, and I am almost down to my high school weight, which was ideal.

you can get arborio rice but not bones?

never made risotto, but for bones you can salvage them whenever you have meals where theyre around. thanksgiving, costco rotisserie chicken, kfc, etc are a small example of possible sources. my mom used to make a really good turkey rice porridge from thanksgiving leftovers.

i dunno how readily available these cuts are in your area, but in addition to the normal cuts, you wanna include really bony parts with lots of connective tissue like collar, neck, back, knuckles, feet, knees, etc. the gelatin from the connective tissue will give the stock a more mouth coating quality and fuller body.

Ideally stock should be used to make a traditional risotto. Which is why if restaurants are using stock they charge a premium; because it takes hours to prepare real stock. It also takes about an hour to prepare risotto.
You can make something just as good at home with a good quality low sodium canned stock, you can use water, or even white wine.

^^ I'm starting to get worried about your wife. Like maybe she's burred in the back yard somewhere. You've posted like 15 pictures and you're wife hasn't been in a single one. I'm calling foul play.
