about those beef cheeks ...

everyone was curious as to why i needed beef cheeks a couple weeks ago. well, here it is. on the left are michael symon's beef cheek pierogi.

on the right are david chang's pork buns, made with roasted pork belly. for the sake of the photography, i wish the one on the front corner wasn't broken, but, oh well.

i did a story for the paper that started off as a review of new cookbooks by symon and chang. but in the end, it was more like a personal challenge. i got to recreate two dishes that i had when i went to their restaurants.

i want to go back to both places, but until i do, looks like i have it covered.

you can read the story here.

Oh man, looking at those pork buns is absolutely giving me Momofuku cravings. They look beautiful, broken bun and all.

And thanks again for supplying me with some of your excess beef cheeks. Lord those are good.
