Has it really been one year since we started this blog?

Happy Blogoversary!

Blogoversary! uncha-uncha-uncha

We started this blog on February 2nd, 2010: so what better way to recap one year in the blog-o-sphere with a list of my favorite posts, sexy time posts, and of course our favorite food porn.

Most favorite posts:

1. Boeuf Bourguignon and guest Chef Fornication Francois : This is one of my favorite posts because I actually write a character evolution piece using food and Julia Child as the vehicle. Brings me back to my creative writing class in college. I am most proud of this post.

 2. Cantankerous Clams – Cause you’re gonna want to lick the bowl clean : Start to finish, step by step, almost all pictures. Keepin it real yo.

3. What is the best part of a McDonalds cheeseburger? : This post/memory drove me back to childhood…like hanabata days kine. Almost like that moment in Ratatouille where one is thrust back into childhood. The post obv not so much about the actual food itself, but the actions around food that drives us to eat.

4. Iron Chef Cat Cora meets a stoned stager and photographer : My attention to gas station details are second to none.

5. Chef Rick Bayless, as an orphan, were you found on the steps of a church wrapped in a tortilla shell? : Did you just picture Chef Bayless IN a tortilla shell? I did.

Sexy time posts:

1. Top Chef Jennifer Carroll in a bikini, Bacon bikini, Padma licking BBQ sauce sweaty-naked or https://quarrylanefarms.wordpress.com/2011/01/16/beach-fufu-drink-top-chef-boobs-thanks-chefjencarroll-damn-you-ericripert-caymancookout/ : The first started out as we mocked another Cleveland blogger. But with the popularity of Top Chef and BravoTV, these two posts seem to be very popular thanks to the bikini pictures, Chef Eric Ripert’s je ne sais quoi, and of course Host Padma Lakshmi licking. Grab a kleenex.

2. Wear your bikini for the 120lbs of pig Happy 4th of July – #oinkfest2010 : Cause our foodie friends are way cool esp since the piggy was so. damn. good. and the hot chicks in bikinis were outstanding. Love America on the 4th of July.

3. Symon Fieri QuarryLaneFarms Brown and DeLaurentiis: All in one place – Cleveland : One picture at the end (thanks HD) makes this post worth visiting. You’ll need a moment.

Food porn:



1. The Best Burger in the world is… : This post is still causing plenty of controversy. Food porn indeed as my vote for the best burger in the world.

2. Gigantic smoked turkey leg…Disneyland style. : Lotsa people with large pieces of meat. Nuff said.

3. @Nomnomtruck – The best banh mi sandwich ever #perfection #hotchick : The detail and close up/macro shots we took of this amazing sandwich is enough to get you a “culinary boner”.

Bonus: B-Y-O-Bacon at Mhenry in Chicago #eggslut : Just look at the last picture post. Happens to me all the time. “Don’t move, I’ll get you a towel…”

Entree the proverbial Bourdain phrase: “So what have we learned?” Well, I can easily say we here at QuarryLaneFarms enjoy our successes/failures of cooking, writing, photography, and of course eating. Our belief remains: Sharing your food is really sharing your soul, your thoughts, your imagination, and most importantly, the history of your family.

Thank you to all of our readers.

Special thanks to Joolie, Snoozie, Curtis, Giner, Sneakerhead, KHWattz, Ms. Veggie, Mr. Drenalin and of course all of our families. We’d be lost without you.

A wise friend said to me, “Keep drinking cause it gets better!”

Back to LA!

While we tooled around in LA, we decided to hunt for the famous Nomnomtruck (@nomnomtruck).

Hello Nomnomtruck !

For those of you who have been hiding out in your Zombie bunker with your Zac Morris phone, a new food revolution of mobile food trucks have infiltrated the country. Gaining in popularity, the Kolgi Trucks (@KolgiBBQ) in LA seemed to start this mobile food charge. Even here in Cleveland, @DimandDenSum has flourished especially in this food-centric town.

And of course @FoodNetwork did a show featuring all these mobile food trucks “The Great Food Truck Race”. LA Times did a great recap here.

We also gave you our teaser onsite here…but as promised, here’s our “full monty” post.

Finding these trucks? Easy as pie – TWITTER. That’s right, you gotta check out “the Twitter” in order to get THE BEST BANH MI I’VE EVER HAD. ***Stop the presses and hold the line…I repeat – THE BEST BANH MI I’VE EVER HAD.***

So wash away your predisposed notions of food trucks because this banh mi will change your life.

Nomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom

What is a “Nomnom”? Well, it’s the sound I make when humping. But OFFICIALLY, according to UrbanDictionary.com : “Represents the sound made when someone is eating or chewing something and really enjoying it.” Got it?

And to aid in your Banh Mi issues, see chart below.

SO – I’d like to introduce you to the best banh mi I’ve ever had. Whisper your hellos now. And don’t kid yourself. This sandwich was clearly over a foot long (heh heh) with the most perfect French baguette ever.

Nomnomtruck's Banh mi - Open wide as its bigger than 12-inches

Start to wipe up your drool as the first bite was heavenly! As you can see, there was a large amount of pickled carrots and turnips with grilled pork. Pickled veggies were crisp and crunchy – absolutely necessary. The BBQ grilled pork with sweet honey glaze and lemon grass chicken we had was seasoned perfectly and so moist. The Bread was awesome – crisp outside and soft inner. BTW-That soft inner will soak up the rest of the flavors making sure you don’t miss a bite. And the kicker? Basically an entire bush of cilantro.

The best banh mi I've ever had

This proportion was PERFECT.

First bite perfection

With the sweet/sour crunch from the pickled veggies and then the salty/sweet savory from the meats…I almost passed out. Then you add the soft inner of the french baguette with the crispy crunchy outsides mixed with everything inside – texturally this banh mi is pure heaven. Cross section please!

Side view of perfection

As you can see, the crews were stuffing the banh mi full of stuff.

Stuff it!

And the mix of flavors were absolutely heavenly.

Delicious and sexy

Even as we neared the end of our first sandwich, pork and chicken were still seasoned well and so juicy. The additional layer of mayo probably helped keep things juicy. Mix the sauce with some mayo and baguette….DAAAAMMMMMMNNNNN.

Hey-Here's a napkin to wipe your drool

Now we have chowed a TON of banh mi across the US…even here in Cleveland we’ve reviewed Superior Pho, Chinatown’s markets Banh Mi, Bac, etc…..But thanks to the crew from the Nomnomtruck, I now have a new favorite banh mi.

Drinky drinky? Even on a gloomy rainy day in LA, the basil mint lemonade hit the spot.

Slurp slurp slurp

We chatted with their crews for a long while and despite their busy schedule, they were TOTALLY cool. They report that their sales have exponentially grown since the Food Network show. Obviously they are good friends with the winners as the Nomnomtruck does joint events with GrillEmAll.

The hot Nomnomtruck gal

Ahem-the hot chick serving my banh mi was awesome too. I repeat, HOT chick (Josh and Justin take note).

Like a crack whore jonesing for the next hit, I too have the shakes as I am craving the best banh mi sandwich ever. FYI-since returning from LA, I’ve had at least a dozen dreams about this specific banh mi. Munchamuncha

Mark this in your travel logs for LA/California…Maybe I should apply for a job there.
