Food pr0n (picture-heavy)

Postby podbaydoor » Sat Apr 11, 2009 2:08 am UTC

The topic dedicated to posting pictures of your lovingly put together and luxuriously photographed food. Posting pictures found on the Internet is also acceptable, and so is posting links to blogs dedicated to people who make it their business to cater to your most prurient gastronomic desires.

I'll get things started with this blog, Food Porn Daily. SFW, but Not Safe For Dieters.
Here is the picture they've got for today:

Wikipedia wrote:Kobe beef in Japan is registered trademark by Kobe beef distribution promotion conference. It must fulfill all the conditions as follows:
Tajima cattle born in Hyōgo Prefecture
Fed by farm in Hyōgo Prefecture
Bullock or Virgin cow, meant to purify the beef
Processed at slaughterhouse in Kobe, Nishinomiya, Sanda, Kakogawa and Himeji in Hyōgo Prefecture.
Marbling ratio called BMS is level 6 and above.
Meat Quality Score is A or B
Gross weight of beef is 470 kg or below.
In accordance with popular belief, the cattle are fed a beer a day, and they are massaged with sake daily and brushed for setting fur, and fed on grain fodder. When the cattle are ready for slaughter, they are slaughtered in a humane and painless customary way in order to keep the meat tender and at its highest flavor. A Kobe beef distribution promotion conference plans to make a pamphlet in foreign languages detailing Kobe beef due to the ambiguation of what actually constitutes Kobe beef, and the fact many tourists who visit Japan receive incorrect information.


I want to be those cows. :shock:

This goes for you too, Bakemaster - that shortcake looks amazing, and I'd also be interested in obtaining the recipe for my friend with Celiac's.

Zuchinni salad is quite simple. Get about 3 full zucchinis, and peel with a carrot peeler. Peel the entire thing until there is nothing left. take these shaving and put them in a bowl. Marinade 2 diced tomoatoes, one medium red onion, chopped, and 3 green onions in balsamic vinegar and oil for an hour. Dump marinated veggies in with zucchini, toss, and add another splash of balsamic and a splash of extra virgin olive oil, pinch of salt, lotsa pepper...voila.

Baconpotatocheese tartthing:
3 baking potatoes, sliced one quarter inch thick {I used my handy dandy mandolin at the medium setting}
1 lb. of thickly sliced bacon
1 lb. of orange cheddar cheese, grated
Salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Line a 6-inch non-stick fry pan with bacon slices, arranging them in a radial pattern and starting with one end of bacon in the centre of the pan and the other end draped over the edge. When the entire surface of the pan has been covered, sprinkle with pepper and add a layer of sliced potatoes to cover the bottom. Sprinkle with grated cheese and pepper and repeat layers until they are slightly above the top of the pan.
3. Fold the bacon, one slice at a time up and over the potato mound toward the centre. Carefully overlap each slice and repeat until the top is completely and neatly covered with bacon. Press down and cover with a lid.
4. Place tart on a baking sheet, which will catch any drips during cooking. Bake for 3 hours.

podbaydoor: It was a couple years ago, but I think I used this basic recipe. The size pan you use isn't that big a deal as the batter won't really spread to fill it anyway; I think I used a 9-inch springform. Then making it vegan and/or gluten-free is all about a few substitutions. You can replace the flour with a GF mix like Bob's Red Mill, but I used a mixture of 1/4 soy flour, 1/4 corn starch, 1/2 rice flour, if memory serves. Add a bit of xanthan gum if you've got it. This is not the most true-to-wheat mix, but I like the bit of nutty flavor that soy flour provides. For vegans, use a substitute like EarthBalance vegan shortening or buttery stick (note: SmartBalance is NOT vegan), soy milk, and replace the egg with 1 tbsp neutral veggie oil, 1 tsp water and 1/2 tsp baking powder.

Since this style of shortcake is biscuity rather than spongey, it lends itself particularly to vegan and GF substitutions. The hardest part is the vegan whipped cream; soy milk doesn't work terribly well, coconut cream works fairly well but needs some added sugar and the taste is off. Some people add powdered soy milk to coconut cream and claim it's good; I haven't tried it.

The prettiest dessert I've ever had was a blood orange tartlet from a restaurant in Somerville; blood orange segments were arranged on top to look like the petals of a flower. Very tasty as well, but unfortunately they don't have much in the way of photos on their website. But while searching, I did find this:

Oh yes -- "Tender is the Loin", parts I and II. I used it as my guide to make a whole tenderloin roast (not the bleu cheese one, the center-cut one). Delicious.
