How about we don't talk about fish this week. I think I will lay low and order Halibut again. There was nothing else interesting available... nothing that made my blood move.

I spent last weekend in Chicago visiting one of my daughters. We ate out at five great mid-range restaurants... Publican, Xoco, Takashi, Mado which was B.Y.O.B. (bring your own bottle) and the last one was a Greek place with the best Greek food in the history of man kind!

Believe it or not, the great restaurants with some of the top chefs in the country all have had pork belly on their menus for a couple of years. I ate so much pork that I started to look like a pig! I will order some for next week. For sure they may not sell very well so I will just plan on eating a lot of pork belly... ha ha. I will go ahead and talk to Steve Fraum from Palmer Foods in Rochester, NY. He always takes care of me on special cuts and this time I will request Black Pig Belly... Yummy in my Tummy!

Your Chef,
