Food Photo Friday - Braised Pork Belly

How can you not love pork belly? Particularly when it's a lovely bit from a pasture-raised, hormone-free, antibiotic-free piggy who grew up at Richardson Farm. This tasty bite was braised and joined by other interesting bits like organic banana purée and pineapple confit, then consumed by me at a blogger tasting at TRACE in the new W hotel.


Every meal at TRACE should be chased with a black peppercorn martini (Stolichnaya Applik, Hendrick's gin, port, black peppercorn syrup, fresh lime, fresh basil, and muddled strawberries), sipped while lounging about jauntily in the red room a couple rooms away from the restaurant. You can play Big City for a few hours, then wander back outside and revert to hippie mode at Barton Springs. Ah, Austin. I love you.



  1. Not fair. You're not allowed to make my mouth water like that before 8:30am.

  2. Awesome picture!!

  3. Love, Love , Love the Black Peppercorn Martini!

  4. When we were in Austin, a group of us ate at The Odd Duck, a food trailer. We had enough people to order a sampling of nearly everything. Love to share and try all the goodies. On the menu were pork belly sliders, tall as the Eiffel Tower. Finish it off dessert from Gourdough, in the same parking lot.
