Not sure if there is any recent food picture/, recipe, food adventure thread...

Summer has finally arrived in NZ.  The cucumber, dill onion, garlic, etc are all created by my beautiful wife, the recipe is from Nourishing Traditions. 

These fermented cucumbers are golden; crisp, tart and delicious.

Planning for our dinner this year but sharing our VD dinner last year at The Habitat:

Elk Wellington
Carrot Mash with orange marmalade, ginger, coriander and cilantro
Broccoli with lemon and pepper
Mixed greens with quick pickles and olives
Date cake with Toffee sauce for desert (not pictured)

Talls swears this was the best meal ever. 

I must admit that the elk tenderloin was old school heaven.  Perhaps the richest and most complex flavored main course I ever cooked.  The carrot mash was an absolute winner.  Wonderfully blended spicing and truly unique.  Broccoli and salad are broccoli and salad…  But desert was sublime.  May be the best cake I’ve every made and almost stupidly simple.  Next time, I will serve the cake with a bit of whipped cream.

I even cleaned up the kitchen after our meal.

Although I was a perfect Lance Romance (Sherries Berries were delivered in the morning and note the nice flower center piece), my amorous advances were thwarted.  Many of you will think that for all my efforts, the usual suspect (my incredibly tiny tool) was my downfall…  BUT NO!  Once again, the universe aligned all it’s forces against me by sending hurricane force winds to blow giant trees down onto our power lines sending us into an evening of freezing darkness listening to the house moan and pop and creak as the elements raged and dogs howled.  Our saviors arrived with trucks and tools in the wee hours and once all was well with lights and heat and water for all, Talls retired to dream of rugged linesmen with large saws and long poles while I sat alone in the early morning grey watching yet another really bad zombie movie.

Looked through my recent pictures, a lot of my "food porn" stuff is alcohol related.

I have Six gallons of JOAM aging in my spare room:


I am trying out Vodka infusion:


Once, a player in my Dnd group said "Is there anything we can do for all the work you put into this game?", and I said "bring the snacks". Its now a huge thing, everyone looks up recipes to make, and buys exspensive cheese, and new products to buy and try (including crickets, marmite, roasted snake). Its become a sort of "foodie" Dnd group potluck every sunday. I give out bonus HP for the best and worst snack bought, its become that official.
 This picture is one of the first nights, before everyone tried to one-up each other:


My auntie is a professional chef, she refuses to quit being a professional chef when she is at home. Every meal is like this:


Also, my girlfriend makes the best cookies:

I love the idea of putting grits into a chili. I usually use crunched up tortilla chips.

Reconstituted dried chiles in a blender is a new thing for me.

This year I got a recipe for pozole and a recipe for tacos al pastor that both called for them.

Life changing. 

I never thought to add them to chili.  Will be attempting this soon.  Thanks for the recipe!
Well.  There it is.
