I suppose I should have provided a NSFW tag on the cut. My apologies.

You realize I was grousing about you posting really great looking food when I'm hungry and can't eat, right?

That looks like such a fun thing, I swear.

Hence NSFW. ^_^ Food porn during the workday is patently unfair.

This was the Pear Battle from November. Eric already posted pics, but I had a whole lot of things happen at once and never got around to it. Han Su was named victor, and will be returning for the second battle...

Leek Battle will be Saturday, and based on the proposals, I'm guessing we're in for some real treats.

It's tough to be at the top. Everyone comes gunning for you...

Are allusions to Rachel Ray even allowed in this journal?!?!
komos From: komos Date: January 13th, 2006 01:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Rachel Ray notwithstanding, it's an old New England term.

I can't say as I'm a fan.

I'm potentially down a judge...

No worries. Judge is easy to fill.

I'm sure you could recruit a spectator. I'll have one with me.

Assuming Craig shows up, we're set. I am toying with a different lineup so I could manage the kitchen, but we'll see how it goes.

i'm not all that into pears but this post has me drolling all over my poor defenseless laptop.

It was some seriously good food, and not a poached pear in the bunch.
futurenurselady From: futurenurselady Date: January 12th, 2006 06:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Eww. Poached pears. Unless of course you poach the pears in meade...

Dammit, now I have pear ideas!!! Curse your pear pictures!!!! Of doooooooooooom!
komos From: komos Date: January 13th, 2006 02:00 am (UTC) (Link)
I can poach pears in red wine that will curl your toes. No joke.

Yeah, the chefs really outdid themselves.
