CHECK OUT THAT PORK ROAST !!! This is clear evidence that last week’s special, Berkshire Pork Shoulder Roasts stuffed with Lemon, Green Garlic, Spring Onions and Greens existed and ruled the planet for a few hours. If you have any doubts whatsoever about the quality of these specialty roasts from Fatted Calf, doubt it no longer pally boy. I have PROOF !!!
And now, do you have any doubts about the Little Lamb Leg Roasts stuffed with Picholine Tapenade? No, I didn’t think so. Run, don’t walk to their order here page. I just did, heh. I feel as though it’s time for a smoke.
OoOoOoo, look! Duck Crepinettes with Roasted Walnuts and St. George Kirsch. Love the duck, I think it’s time for a package of 2, eh? Yes. Well, as near as I can tell, FC has a totally bitchen menu this week. And you know what? The weather looks as though it will not suck. A fresh spring day out at the farmer’s market, I can’t think of doing much else. The green garlic is out, asparagus is plentiful and tons of great citrus. I got a load of these really cool little grapefruits last week, so nice. The best part is that they taste like they’re supposed to. Not like those old grocery store ones. You know? The ones where it’s a crap shoot whether it tastes worth while or not? TOSS.
So, pack up your reusable sack and hit the market this weekend. I hope to see you there!

While working in the office today I caught a heavenly whiff of grilled meat. A charcoal laced breeze was blowing in my window. I sat at my desk sorting through invoices and answering emails but kept finding my mind floating along the rib scented wind, down an alley of thin backyard burgers, inviting itself onto warm sunny decks where a lunch of smoky rib eye was about to be served.
The grill is calling, beckoning you outside. Perhaps this is the weekend to put your outdoor kitchen in order. Whether you have a humble hibachi precariously perched on your overcrowded back porch or a custom built wood fired oven set amidst an olive grove we have a host of raw materials for your initial venture. Merguez blooms over glowing coals and makes a swank mixed grill plate alongside some slices of little lamb leg roast. Duck Crepinettes and Rabbit Boudin come alive atop your grill for an easy weeknight session. Toulouse, Fennel and Calabrese all love a little indirect heat. Remember to pick up a little pâté and salami to keep your impatient, meat-fiends sated while you bond with your fair weather friend, the grill.
