I thought the art portal needed a little diversity in its artwork types, so I decided to upload MY art.
Let me know what you think!
And before you say anything:
Q: No photographs? What about a photo of a painting I did in real life?
A: A photograph of a sculpture, painting, or some other piece of art you have made are in fact exceptions to this rule. Feel free to submit scans and photographs of your art if it's not already in a digital format.
This is food art!!!
Whoops, my bad. What do you mean by legit? As in whether or not I made it? Or whether or not its allowed in the art portal?

I'm not sure. I won't say anything because I might be wrong. I'm sure a moderator will clear things up sooner or later.

Agreed, it's similar to molding clay and stuff such as that. Just edible.
Sure I could include the pics in the thread, but as far as recipes go, I could inly give rough instructions. I just kind of throw shit together as I go along haha.
Debone one rabbit. Wrap the tenderloin of the rabbit in the breastmeat and season with salt and cayenne pepper. Set aside for 10 minutes. Remove the silver skin from the strip loin of the rabbit, season with salt and cover top with dijon mustard (prefferably a dijon with whole or cracked seeds intact). Then cover with panko breadcrumbs. French the ribs of the rabbit and season with salt and black pepper. make a liquid consisting of vermouth, white wine, brandy, veal stock, dijon mustard, 1 peice of star anise, mustard seed, celery seed, black pepper, and salt. Debone and sear the lower portion of the rabbit legs in a hot pan and remove them to the braising liquid. Over medium heat, simmer the rabbit legs until done. Sear the rack of rabbit in hot oil. Roast the breast wrapped tenderloin and the dijon crusted strip loin until done (the tenderloin will be done before the strip loin).
Vermouth dijon demiglace:
After rabbit legs are finished simmering, transfer one cup of liquid to a saucepan and reduce until there is about 1.5 oz remaining. Whisk in 3 tbl of butter and 1 tbl of heavy cream.
Tomato, onion, and Balsamic Jam:
Remove the seeds and center portion of roma tomatoes. Roast in the oven for about 10 minutes. After roasting, remove the skin and mince. Mince red onions and add to a pan with butter, olive oil, and basil. Cook over medium high heat until the onions start to turn brown. Add vermouth to the pan and stir. After most of the vermouth has evaporated, add the tomato, a little bit of sugar and salt. cook over med-high heat for about 5 minutes and add a little balsamic vinegar. Cook until a thick shapable mixture forms.
Mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus should be pretty simple for most anyone to do.

Keep it up! ;3
My art is 45% less coherent than most art, but infinitely more delicous :3

Soft Boiled Egg:
Add an egg into cold salted water in a small pot. Bring to a boil and cook for 7 - 10 minutes. CAREFULLY remove the shell and season with sea salt and cracked black pepper. (Soft boiling eggs is really difficult to do, but the recipe wont be too diminished if you just hard-boil them)
In a small saucepan, add about 1/2 inch of oil to the bottom and heat to 350 F. Drop a nice basil leaf into the pan and fry for about 4 - 6 seconds. Remove from pan and season with salt immediately.

Also, I've got some desserts on the way! I should have 2 or 3 within the course of the next couple weeks.
These are wonderful works of art. I've stared at each of these pictures for quite a while, possibly longer than I've ever looked at any picture in the portal. Thought I'd share that..

Don't be hatin' :C
Allow me to explain why portions are so small at really nice restaurants and the common misconceptions about them:
There are scientific reasons that portions sizes are so small at fine dining restaurants. The first bite of a dish is the most physically and mentally stimulating. The reason that portions are so small in fine dining is to prevent the diner's palate from getting 'bored' of the dish.
In any fine dining restaurant worth their salt, they have lots of courses to a meal (which remedies the small portion sizes). A standard tasting menu usually runs 8 - 15 courses, I've seen them go up to 45!!! This is also one of the reasons for an exorbitant price tag.
Another reason for an exorbitant price tag is the meticulous preparation and level of detail that goes into every dish and the quality level of the ingredients. They just plain cost more to prepare than most restaurants dishes.
I usually like to compare fine dining restaurants to concerts or sporting events. Why go to a concert when you can just buy the CD? Why go to a sporting event when you can watch it at home on your TV? The answer is simple: The experience is leagues different.
You go to a diner to fill up the tank, but going to The French Laundry or any similar fine dining restaurant isn't about getting full. Its about experiencing flavors and textures that you've never seen or tasted before. Fine cuisine can evoke strong emotions and feelings that normal food cant. Its romantic, its exotic, its unusual. You aren't just buying food when you go there, you are buying memories and an experience.
You aren't paying $15 for just a bit of food, you're paying for a piece of art that you can experience will all of your senses.
Wow, look at me rant. Thats enough I guess ;)

Don't think of it as "ranting". An artist has a right to defend his art, and you've done a beautiful job of that. This is a complaint that has always bothered me when people show disrespect for finer dining; the point of food isn't always to get one full, just as the point of music isn't just to give people a beat to dance to or sing along to. These are artforms, and can present oh so much more to the mind and senses.
For a more "art forum" oriented example of "why": compare owning an original painting by an extremely talented artist, say, Greg Simkins. (Using a personal favorite here as an example). Then take buying posters to cover one's walls. Compare the two; one provides a significantly greater amount of decoration and can still give someone's place a great appearance, while the other covers significantly less wall-space for WAY more money. Would you say that people who buy paintings are idiots?
I wouldn't. The fact that someone put massive amounts of thought, talent, and work into it, and that it's the only one of its kind and has so much more artistic integrity than a poster makes that painting a far superior form of decoration, especially in that it can be more than simply decoration as a work of art.
I like what you're doing here, sir, in bringing something vastly different to Newgrounds.
My Art Thread.
Eeureka! With an exclamation point!

"...you are buying memories and an experience." = poetry. Damn, could only wonder how the menu will read.
My menu will be pretty simple actually; little more than a list of main flavors as to avoid preconceptions. I want to surprise the diner and let the food to speak for itself ;)
