Cochon ButcherTuesday, July 24, 2012
I have been meaning to post these pics forever -- this is from our March trip to Donald Link's (who we already were fans of thanks to Herbsaint) Cochon Butcher on Tchoupitoulas.
Well, we got there during the busiest part of the lunch rush, and they were out of space, so we decided to just take it to-go as a picnic.
The macaroni and cheese, which Shug liked, especially:
Pork belly, with mint and cucumber:
Donald Link was a nominee this year for the James Beard 'Outstanding Chef' and won Best Chef in the South in 2007. His Real Cajun cookbook (which I have and is really great) won a James Beard award few years ago, too.
Oh -- and on his website, he gives information on where he sources dairy, meat, etc. Nice.
