    Did you rest your pork belly on towels in the in the dish that goes in the fridge? It looks like there’s white surrounding your pork in the glass dish. Was there a reason you did it that way? Just want to know cause I’m DEFINITELY going to make this dish!

  2. I can’t wait till it is done. Thanks for the inspiration.
