NO WAY A POUND OF BUTTER TO A QT OF LIQUID AFTER THE FLOUR WAS PUT IN  YOU WOULD HAVE A MESS. I have worked with chefs that add nutmeg or mace and white pepper., and have worked with some who do not . Depends on its use
If they can afford to operate a camp then charge them a decent amount for your time and services. You will kill yourself doing this plus you don't even get paid travel time. They may be non profit you are not. They will try to take advantage of you. Been there, done that, learned  fast.
 1. Do you speak Spanish? If you don't forget it.   2. In Florida you need a car, or motorcycle or bike. Public trans does not run at night in most towns. 3. Florida pays less then Chicago, New York etc. Very few cash jobs except as extra in catering.  Northern Florida is better paying..  All of Florida is very seasonal for both customers and staff. Most guys I know used to follow the sun seasonally. Northern states in summer  south Florida in winter. Good Luck  Another...
Depends on what you want to do with the stock?
The alcohol in the Liquors tend to break down the gelatin. Try flaming them first to get out the alcohol.
Chris  instead of mortaring try putting them into a food processor  or pepper mill.  Maybe some Tumeric.
As I said   "it is all a matter of  INDIVIDUAL  taste, likes and dislikes"     Our own heritage and ethnic backgrounds also comes in to it, as was how we were brought up.
I toast all my spices and nuts in the oven. This way they all toast evenly. Your  Curry looks very nice.
French cuisine rated by a French magazine is not as believable as an American magazine. I was trained in French cuisine and worked in France . It is still the basis of most cuisines. It is varied but for todays patrons slightly to heavy. Italian is mostly tomatoes and garlic, Mexican is cheap so people like it . It depends on the individual taste. My opinion is French is the forerunner of all cooking.
Everyones  taste differs    . Manufacturers try and make their product to appeal to the masses. Southern style slaw is chopped on the sweet side, northern not as sweet and not chopped ,just shredded. Northern potato salad has no mustard  Southern does.. I make slaw dressing with cider vinegar, sugar, celery seed and mayo I sometime add crushed pineapple and no sugar.        Food as well as cooking is a matter of individual taste. No one is right and no one is wrong.
