Squid ink tostada, guajillo grilled octopus, chipotle mayo, salsa verde. Only method for cooking octopus I've used is putting in a heavy pot with good lid, bit of oil, and some garlic/herbs/chilli. Simmer covered for 1 hour, turning every 10 or so. Cool in the liquid then prep as needed - grill, slice etc. Ridiculously tender and no messing about dipping in boiling water 4 times etc etc. it will leave a gelatinous sea-tasting stock perfect for pasta etc too. Also a good tip I read: if it's been frozen then you don't need to be a barbarian beating it with a mallet while decorating the kitchen to tenderise...

Grilled beef heart, mole negro, roasted carrot purée, BBQ onions, homegrown tomatillo salsa verde. Not gonna say this beef heart was like eating fillet steak as many people claim but it was pretty tender and a punchy ajillo balanced it out. Tomatillo plants in full effect.
