Wow, thanks! As I've mentioned before, I try to make use of these challenges to try something new. And both the tuna and pastrami were first time efforts for me. I've done the tuna tataki before, but the kombu curing added a new dimension to it. And I don't want to sound too cocky, but the pastrami turned out better than I thought a first attempt might. Perhaps it will inspire some others to give it a try.

I already have an idea for the next challenge, will get it posted soon.

Indeed. A charcuterie challenge could be fun, but were talking months and months of curing and drying time for some things.

I'd just like to see some new faces jumping in to the regular challenges, rather than just the usual diehards that participate these days.

Congratulations Teamfat! Well deserved.

Hopefully the slowness this month was partly due to the busyness of this month - I know I've only ever made one entry (though I often intend to and run out of time) but December so just so slammed, I honestly never even had an idea that seemed doable due to other commitments.
