Big Crow is a new BBQ place created by the chef of Rose and Sons. It is an outdoor space but built well enough that it kept tonight’s rain and wind out. We had the fire roasted chicken, potato salad and roasted corn salad. All were pretty good! Sharp mustard made the potato salad stand out and the roasting of the corn made them very smokey. The chicken was tender and it was topped with a “green sauce” that reminded me of Chinese ginger sauce or chimichurri.
For dessert we had ice cream sandwiches, the s’mores version posted below.

PBS, still the best channel for cooking shows, has done it again with The Mind of a Chef. Narrated by Anthony Bourdain, cooking by David Chang, it’s thoughtful and provoking. The episode I just saw showed the secret of the poached egg used in Momofuku’s ramen. You can also watch episodes online (but not in Canada).
