Yestersay was croque monsieur followed by some Talisker 18, day before me and a friend grilled crayfish with garlic and herb butter for starters and then a venison roast with a balsamic sauce and potatoes au gratin. Also follwed by Tali 18.

Pan fried entrecôte (rib eye) marinaded in chili sauce, black pepper, balsamic vinegar, liquid smoke, oil, honey and a pinch of salt. Served with a garlic and herb (marjoram, parsley, thyme, rosemary and basil) butter plus pommes chateau and broccoli.

Had a Talisker 18 and wine with this.

Thanks Sean! The liquid smoke and thick marinade created a decent substitute for the BBQ.
Yesterday I made a minced beef stew based on the above marinade, just added some chopped onions, golden chantarelles, garlic, game stock, cream and greeen pepper corns. To this I had a Glenfarclas 105 and a beer.

Pork chops coated in rosemary, garlic and pepper. Seved with cream gravy and mash.
The Talisker 18 was somewhat overwhelmed by the galic I'm afraid.

A simple salad. Raw onion has a strange effect on the palate.

Pork pot roast with carrots, parsnip, celeriac, onion, garlic, rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, pepper corns, and tomato pure. Boiled tatties and a sauce made from the stock in the pot.

The left overs are now in the fridge in a brine with liquid smoke, bay leaf and junipers.

Pizza also. Four cheese pizza washed down with some Secret Stills Bowmore. I did not assess whether they complimented each other. I just drank and ate. :D

I eat nothing at all... :smoke: sometimes I'll enjoy a good Fuente maduro ( Opus X ), with some of my favorite drams of Glenlivet, Dalmore, Glenmorangie, and Balvenie. On few occasions I'll break out some of my favorite blends and have them neat, just like I have my malts, neat. NO MORE...NO LESS... :shock: 8) :D :smoke: :thumbsup:

I was eating haggis yesterday at the fest. I really wanted to break out my flask of Talisker, but I was kinda on the go, and didn't have enough hands free.
