Menu for the Week of May 14, 2012 — Highlights from Atlanta’s Food & Wine Festival!

Three words:   We.  Are.  Exhausted.  Exhausted, yes, but equally energized too after a weekend of eating and drinking the creations of the culinary heavy hitters of the Southeast!  In last week’s newsletter, we told you Kevin would be doing pork belly six ways on Kevin Gillespie’s Whole Pig Trail, but somehow that morphed into pork belly 15 ways:

Bacon in Egg:  Pork Belly Cauliflower Custard, Pickled Antenes Carrot, Yuzu Pork Belly with Pork Belly Pepper

Peach & Pork Belly Pie:  Pearson Farm Peaches, Pork Belly Peach Veloute, Peach Foam

Candied Pork Belly with Foie Gras Mousse:  Local Strawberry, Fresh Cream, Pork Belly & Pistachio Aigre-Doux

Beef Cheek and Pork Belly Rillette:  Pork Belly Skin with Mirepoix Powder, Mustard Greens, 15 Pepper Salpicon

Pork Belly En Croute:  Slow Roasted Pork Belly with Pickled Coriander and Brown Coriander Pork Belly Mustard

And Seven Pork Belly Terrines:  (1) ChiChili Pork Belly with Calabrian Pancetta; (2) Rabbit and Pork Belly with Lardo and Pistachios with Aspic Blanc d’Apple; (3) Leek with Rabbit and Pork Belly & Black & Pink Pepper Creme; (4) Pork Belly with Mayhaw and Mayhaw Aspic; (5) Pork Belly and Rabbit with Apple and Fresh Sage; (6) Pork Belly Campagne Wrapped in Coppa; and (7) Cheeky Belly ~ Beef Cheek with Pork Belly and Rabbit Liver

If you weren’t able to make it to the event, we will be recreating several of the terrines above this week in the shop, so if ever there was a week to buy terrines, this is it!  Additionally, the COPPA is finally ready, so that’s worth the trip in and of itself!  Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us over the weekend, and please check out our Facebook page, where we’ll be posting pictures and bloggers’ coverage from the event!  Several posts have already gone up!
