Author Notes

WHO: Peter Barrett, creator of acookblog.com and a Hudson Valley-based painter and food writer who grows his own food and makes his own ceramic plates.
WHAT: An 8-course extravaganza effortlessly marrying the art of charcuterie and the science of molecular gastronomy.
HOW: Peter spent the two days leading up to Thanksgiving curing, stuffing, sous-videing, clarifying and deep-frying in order to pull off this Charcutepalooza-inspired feast.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Ambitious, clever and brimming with confidence, this post epitomizes the notion of a showstopping finale, delivered with a dose of humor. —Food52
