How beautiful is this?
It might look like a lot of meat but it is mainly skin and fat, I'm not complaining but it makes a very rich and filling dish. Alas this beauty lost his ear between the abattoirs and my place. There is a large piece of meat in the cheek and another nugget behind the eye. That's new potatoes mixed in with the onions and cooking juices with watercress added at the end.
Tonight I am giving up pork, well I am having head cheese, but I am concentrating on beef. Steak and kidney pie followed by a calf's foot, (in reality a cow's foot as calf's foot is hard to find in Toronto) and blood orange jelly. Luckily I have adventurous dinner guests.
