If I had to choose one meal until I died, this would be it: Dill Pickles, Greek Olives, Chorizo Secco, Prosciutto di Parma wrapped cantaloupe, nutmeggy Mortadella and Havarti Cheese with German Tomy mustard.
I love BBQ chicken on the grill. I learned recently that thick BBQ sauces, like the kind that I like, don’t penetrate the meat so well when marinating it. It needs to be cut; diluted with something to bring down to a consistency more like maple syrup.
I like to use Stubb’s BBQ sauce, then dilute with Red Jacket Orchard’s Fuji Apple Juice and the pulp of half a tangerine. Let it marinate for 1 hour in room temperature. Then I put the bone-in chicken legs on high heat on my trusty rooftop gas grill for 3 minutes a side, basically a quick burn to the surface of the meat. Then set the grill on medium-low heat and grill for as much as 25 minutes. Make sure you brush the marinade on the chicken every 5 minutes. Salt & pepper to taste.
Mmmmmm.. juicy meat every time. We don’t know dry chicken in this house.
Grass-fed fresh local beef, mixed with minced onions and soaked with soy sauce 24 hours before grilling; potato buns.
Everything except the corn gets smothered in cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. Small sweet peppers with hot Hungarian paprika. Bell peppers on skewers with sea salt and white pepper. Crimini mushrooms on skewers with truffle salt. Sliced baby eggplant with Swiss vegetable seasoning, Aromat. Corn on the cob soaked in salty water for twenty minutes.
More of the same, but with the Meat Hook’s amazing Bahn Mi themed sausages.
On a completely different note with a food theme..

For the warm months of the year, I am a hardcore, do or die cold brewer. We use the Toddy brewing system, which creates a concentrated coffee that you can dilute with milk or water for excellent iced coffee. Obviously, you have to use good ass coffee, too. As a back up, though, I was hoping to find the concentrated Stumptown cold brew that the NYTimes wrote an article about a couple months ago, but haven’t seen it anywhere. But I was happy to see this iced coffee concentrate at the Meat Hook last week. Grady’s Cold Brew claims to be New Orleans style, although it’s made in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I bought it, risking the chance that I’d spend $15 on some shitty coffee, but it passed my coffee snob test. This is good stuff.
New to cold brewing? Here’s the jist of it.

Chinese vegetable artist, Ju Duoqi makes images of women using mainly cabbage and other veggies. This is fucking weird ass shit and I love it.
Now beat that shit, homefry!
Above: 3 carrots, 1 apple, 1 peeled lemon: juiced, baby!
4 beets, 10 strawberries, 1 peach.. spicy juice!
I mentioned before how much I loved watermelon juice, but we have an awesome juice extractor and plenty of fruits and vegetables to combine and experiment with.
1 beet, 5 strawberries, 1 peach, 2 small bananas, 1 apricot.. slightly confused.
Also (not pictured) I had the juice combination of 10 strawberries, 1 head baby bok choy, 5 cherry tomatoes.. surprisingly delicious and complex.
