Connoisseurs Update: Bear Meat, Pig shaped Cakes and Fancy Salt.



Check out as we do battle with various game dishes ranging from Bear to Quails and passing through a southern rendition of Cassoulete with collard greens on the side. All recipes are included.





Jenny our resident artist sculpts cakes in the shape of pigs and boars this month! Also do a search for her mind blowing catfish cake featured in a bunch of blogs and websites recently.



Tom spends time revisiting his first Belgian Beer...





We review a bunch of different restaurants from Boston and even one in Iowa!

Luv and Kitchenelf: dissecting a baby pig is not that hard when it's made entirely out of cake.

I kept thinking, man that is almost too life-like, I would almost feel like I was really cutting into a catfish! And are those catfish eggs it is surrounding??

But seriously, very nicely done and I especially liked the boar.
