Bucket list?

There are things I have on my "cooking" bucket list--happy to report I've crossed two off this year--dolmatas from fresh grape leaves and tamales. I still need to work up the courage to make gravlax. And now that I have a smoker, a smoked turkey is on the list. What's on your cooking bucket list?

Pressed duck
Head cheese
really good salum
make more cheeses
distill something drinkable, maybe a spiced rum, or whiskey
I really wish I could master the crispy roast pork belly like they make at Noodle Express in Chinatown.

I'd like to make homemade sauerkraut, as my old Grandpa used to.

Maybe also an Asian version called 'Kimchee'. (I'm not Asian, just Canadian with a mix of Polish and Irish).

Duck, in some way that isn't a greasy nasty or over-cooked to tough, dry, leather.

Those are the only two ways I've ever been served Duck. I've never even once made it at home.

I'm a pretty good cook and willing to try TNT recipes that don't fall into those two end results!

It is a shame Adria closed it down. Will be neat to see what his next project is though. Went and saw both Ferran, and Jose Andreas at the Lisner Auditorium a couple weeks ago, really amazing evening. He came from such humble beginnings, and is like a little kid with his excitement for food, and the science behind it.

I had the opportunity to see both of these chefs in action on TV and what they are doing is fascinating.
