I grew up in Greece in the late 70's and we were immune from all of these yucky things.  My Grandmother was grinding her own wheat, butchering her own chickens, milking her own goats and living off the land.  I never saw packaged meat from a supermarket until we moved to the US.

@GeneMachine I'm dying to dip some crusty bread in that sauce!   @ChefNick91 welcome to the challenge, a wonderfully simple first entry, looks great!   @petalsandcoco masterful plating as always, it's too beautiful to eat!   @teamfat you've inspired me to do something similar, well done!  How do you store the salmon after it's cured and for how long?   @kevp I disagree, those are pretty spectacular!

What on earth are you talking about?  Roux is not just for gravy.
@ordo that looks fantastic, I just have to try it!  What cut of meat did you use for that?  And what does cornstarch do?   Finally we're having some good weather and the sun was shining bright and hot today, we had a beautiful day at the park followed by lunch at a new local turkish restaurant in our neighborhood.  The rice pudding was to die for.  For dinner we're grilling chicken and veg skewers.  These have a marinade made with garlic confit, balsamic, and whatever...
