Well we had a fun day in NK. Our brothers to the south won their game over the the Greeks who so deftly prove glorious leader right about woes of capitalism. So six in one hand half a dozen in the other I guess.Lunch feature was cool today. I tried to do a little play on the popular pairing between strawberries, balsamic, black pepper and vanilla ice cream. What I got out of it was as follows:Pan seared spring salmonstrawberry and black pepper clafloutis arugula salad and balsamic paint.I think it was well received by the general public.Yesterday we had a nice little ditty as well:Corned bison brisket on Ciabatta(sometimes Glourious leader insists on slipping imports across the border, for no other reason than lack of desire to see other succeed. i.e. ciabatta),sauerkraut, hot honey mustard, arugula, tomato. and on the side a nice little smoked potato salad.Today Marty and I hammered out 42 ciabatta buns without anyone really even noticing...hmmmm, that was easy wasn't it. yup.

Sounds like you BOV guys are having some fun down there Chef Peltier. I like the sounds of your McMuffin. You should try to spring a camera out of your boss as a bonus so that you can show off what you're doing down there!
I can't even spring some earplugs out of my boss, let alone a camera. Those photos are on the flicker site though. I like the sounds of the porkford files. Perhaps Magnum P.I.G. is in the works down here. How is the little sweat box of a kitchen working out for ya. I bet you were my size right about now
