Conor Martin. He’s alive & online:
Conor is a serious photographer, but more importantly an artist. He has been a dear friend of mine for some time now and has released several collections you should try to get your hands on. Good luck. Link in bio. #linkinbio . #nofilter .
Caught in the act. Beautiful Korean dinner from Chef Jae Jung (center right), thank you for teaching everyone something about North & South Korean food! I am so grateful I could play any part. Thank you. #gramofagram . #truecooks .
For centuries, artisans in Japan’s Kishu region have been burning oak branches to yield Binchotan charcoal, renowned for its purifying properties. These charcoal sticks can be used to filter water (pop one in a carafe), bring out flavor while cooking rice, absorb odors in rooms and refrigerators, or give a healthy boost to soil in your garden or potted plants. I grab one to add a moment of Zen to bathtime. Each bag includes a random assortment of charcoal pieces of varying length and thickness. This was a particularly good batch to use for roasting dry aged beef and duck.
Curate your selection. I’ve been throwing out a lot, these are a few of the ones I’ve saved. I almost threw them all out, but remembered who I was with and what we were doing vividly when I hold theses records. And I couldn’t bring my self to let go of them, too.
Happy birthday @vondeckondeck & @notorius_r0b I have spent more time living with the two of yous than anyone else—and you still hang out with me—for that I am grateful. Thank you @grantaidan for this death defying balancing act deploying a cake, you are a man of many talents, always down for a good stunt!
The biggest plate of yakitori I have ever seen. Also not pictured, Kikusui Funaguchi “Monster Can”: A “monster” can filled with 1,000ml of a powerful and tasty sake with hints of honey but mostly tastes like “gold”.
If you close your eyes this new creation taste like Carolina style pulled pork, but it’s only grilled yuba. I swear the food here is twice as good as it was last year. It’s the best frozen dessert you can get in this city. And last year it was the best bite of burger this side of the Mississippi. Just go. You’ll see. You’ll all see. @superiorityburger.
