Okay, we all love food, but there are some things that all of us dread when it comes to food preparation.  There are just things that we think we don’t like, things we can’t bear to think about touching, let alone preparing, or things that just seem too professional or difficult to bother… MORE

What? Roux (pronounced rew, rhymes with dew)is the simplest of food mixtures, just flour and oil, but performs the most intricate of functions. Roux is the traditional thickener of classic sauces. So what makes this old reliable? It is it’s reliability. It rarely ever fails and can be made… MORE

A quick review of an earlier blog: hubby was raised in a not-overly religious Jewish family, although they followed some traditions, which includes an avoidance of all things pork. Mike, on the other hand, has always been a bit of a rebel: his favorite after school snack was one or more BLTs,… MORE

Once again the debate is heating up with the summer temperature.  What do you put on your hot dog?  Mustard or ketchup?  Also, what else is your favorite topping for the frankfurter, weiner, dog, red hot, sausage, brat, keilbasa, or coney?  Sauerkraut, onions, pickles, tomatoes, peppers,… MORE

For some, this may be elementary and for others it may be an "AHHHHHH!!!!!" moment. In today's world with our hypersensitivity over germs, it has become common place for restaurant workers to wear gloves when handling food. I usually do not. I never did when I was working my way through the… MORE

I’ve had the best of intentions to blog regularly about culinary school but it seems like once a week is about all I can master these days.  Next week is the end of our first block of classes so there’s a ton of final exams, a group and an individual project due, a book report to finish and a… MORE

Once again I find myself at 35,000 feet wending my way across the not so friendly skies of but this time I don’t mind as much as I normally do. That is probably because this time I am headed for a city that I have had a not so secret love affair with for over 20 years. A city that captures my… MORE

I just found/tried a terrific iOS app called FoodStream.  It has a Facebook like interface and navigation, with features that are a combination of deals like Groupon, Local Hot Spots based on location or restaurant type like Urban Spoon - and it includes a bunch of cool social features. It's… MORE

I’ve just completed the fourth week of culinary school and have yet to actually cook anything…unless you count mayonnaise, which I don’t.  The first six week block is all about learning classic French cooking terms, methods, mother sauces, basic soups, commercial kitchen equipment and we… MORE
