Wow! That is a good looking spread! Congrats, your work and study of the craft has paid off! Image

Can you identify for us the products in the pics? Some are obvious, others not so easy to identify. :grin:

That looks great Kunde :!: . Could you explain why you use transglutaminase with cream cheese?

I shred cheese and add liquid smoke and then glue it to get solid again.
Just want to test how it tastes then fully smoked. Result was good and texture is also more harder

I don't think the cream cheese sold in the US can be shredded or even sliced unless frozen, it is quite soft.

Shredded softer cheese like Mozzarella can be returned to a solid state by simply vac sealing. I found that out by mistake :oops: while repacking a large bag of pizza cheese into smaller bags.

Looks good Kunde. That looks like a fine cut of beef there. I love the marbling.

Kunde, that marbbling on that strip loin is incredible, Wagyu like! Where in Thailand do you source such beef? My niece is currently teaching in Bangkok and wrote home that she has trouble getting ground beef!
