Best Homemade Food Gift

This year I'm giving a peach mostarda that I canned this fall, preserved lemons (currently preserving themselves) and homemade vanilla (http://www.beanilla.com/blog/homemade...).

How do you use curry powder - other than curry?

I love curry powder on french fries with a bit of salt.

Thanksgiving Throw Down - pie edition

I'm going to have a mix. Some are adventurous, others are decidedly not. Maybe one pie for the traditionalists and another to push the palates/cover my bases?

We're having a pie contest this Thanksgiving and, of course, I want to crush the competition. Ideas for the best freaking pie in the world?

Is fun to have the whole hog - an embarrassment of riches! Thanks for the ideas - especially on the more "interesting" parts!

Porkapalooza

I've got a whole pig, already broken down. We did it last year and had about 60 people. We host it in a bar and bring in chafing dishes/warmers to hold food. Last year the menu was:

Pulled pork sandwiches
Asian pork meatballs
Spiced pork empanadas
Cuban pork hash
Pork curry with mango

Coleslaw two ways
Chips
Cut veggies
Quinoa salad

Peanut butter & bacon truffles
Bacon & bourbon pecan brownies
Chocolate chip cookies

We can grill & smoke on site as well.

A friend and I are throwing a fundraiser for charity in which we cook up a whole bunch of pig in a bunch of different ways then have a big party and charge at the door. BUT i need some inspiration for the dishes. Ideas?
