So, I've been a little delinquent in posting some Supper Punch updates. Here is what you need to know:

  • Dawson 2, Carnam 2, Bonkovsky 1, Catrow coming on strong after his first win
  • People do not seem to like lamb's tongue (in spite of a Thomas Kellar inspired plating)
  • I still can't get inside the mind of the voters - what is it you people what from ME! (Ok, Ryan Smartt actually told me what he wants)
  • I've been in the kitchen more since this started than the previous 6 months!

From RVAnews last week:

The Dawson/Carnam domination of Supper Punch!!! has come to close, thanks to Sarah Bonkosvky and her much-admired sweet potato and ginger soup last week. Way to go, Bonko! And now, on to week 6…

You'll have to go to the site to see what the other's did- hint, Dueling chickens and some hipster tortellini - all of which look great!

This week:

Boom. That just happened. A crispy, fried, southern to the core pork chop! I served it leaning lazily alongside some greens, kale in this case, that were cooked low and slow. Add some sweet tea and oooo eeee that just tastes like the South. The greens started about 30 minutes before the pork with yet even more pork. Some home cured prosciutto was rendered in a pan along with garlic and chili flakes. The kale went in along with some stock and water and was left to simmer for an hour.

There are a lot more pictures here on Flickr and you can also see what the other SupperPunchers are up to in this flickr pool
