Bacon and eggs or land, sea, and sky, all about umami...this dish has several concepts. 48 hour cure of soy, brown sugar, and lemon grass on pork belly. Soy, lemongrass, ginger, shallot, caramelized sugar, carrot and chili flake braised kombu and wood ear mushrooms. Hard boiled quail egg. Crispy ice fish. Rice wine vinegar pickled watermelon rind. Braising liquid reduction and a pork and lemon grass consomme which is not pictured... This dish is one of my new favorites. I served this over the weekend. It was a new dish for valentines but I will move it to the winter menu. I just love it.
