My brain is having a lot of trouble with those pics. I am bewildered, delighted, disturbed, aroused, ashamed and then back to bewildered again. It's a roller coaster of emotion.

My boss is nominated for restauranteur. Now I have to send her those pics. Thanks for sharing! :rofl2:

I second Craig Deihl. He is one hell of a butcher and makes the best charcuterie ever. He can also drink like a champ

Pabu the other Mina restaurant at FS baltimore got Nominated as well for best new restaurant. A well deserved nomination even though this opinion doesnt count since i work with them. We also have some really heavy weights in that category as well so we are happy for being nominated .

BTW Is it my idea or Gary Danko been nominated straight the past 3 years for outstanding chef ?

Chris Shepherd at Underbelly in Houston. Great guy, awesome food. I learned hog butchery from him. His charcuterie is serious stuff.
