February's Feast Magazine featured an article by Cassie Vires on cold smoking at home. Cassie Vires is the chef at Home Wine Kitchen in Maplewood where chef Vires' cooking is creating a buzz around town. I had already written my Valentine's Day menu and it included a smoked pork tenderloin served on sweet potato pancakes with homemade applesauce and creme fraiche, so I did a trial run on her technique-it didn't quite work out for me althought it did produce some very tasty smoked pork. I recommend clicking on the Feast link to see a video of Vires demonstrating her very cool technique.
