Sunday Morning Charlie Palmer Breakfast

There's nothing like a gourmet wild game breakfast on Sunday.

We had wild boar sausage en croûte, a crock of potted eggs topped with wild mushrooms, bacon and cheese; fingerling potato fricassee; and a slice of corn bread, along with assorted pastries ... AND ... the perfect Sunday morning hangover cure ... a spicy Skyy vodka Bloody Bull.

"Don't forget the bomb!" said Palmer, referring to the cherry tomato buried within the drink - it was loaded with lemon Skyy vodka.

I ate everybody's at my table!

Breakfast was paired with a Coronado by La Flor Double Corona cigar. This was after breakfast, as you can't smoke where there's food in Las Vegas. This was fine with me, as I prefer to eat first and then smoke anyway.

Charlie Palmer, five-star restaurateur and gourmet chef gave a wonderful cooking demonstration focused on how to prepare and cook wild game.

"Cooking any kind of wild game is much, much different from cooking what you buy in a store," he said. "You need to introduce basting, or fat."

"When you're cooking wild game, well done is not what you want," said Palmer. "Anything more than medium is going to have that livery taste."

Sunday also had a Roll Your Own cigar rolling contest and a Tequila tasting. I wish I was still there. I didn't want to go home. I guess coming home to South Florida isn't so bad though and there will be more cigar events coming up. Until then, I will relish the great memories of the Las Vegas Big Smoke.
