Jose's Old Clothes

Yesterday’s trip to the New York Stock Exchange was so much fun. It’s a fascinating place and totally lacked the frenzy and screaming that I was expecting. Still it’s a very impressive place and you feel it’s importance. Too bad it was such a dismal day for the market. As I …

Cheers to Chef Akira!

Good morning!

A few years ago we had a very talented chef from Japan working with us. Akira Onizawa taught us so many things about various techniques used in Japanese cooking that are not part of our French techniques. One of my favorite foods he used to make was Misoyaki Salmon that was marinated …

It's Wash Day!

Today is “wash day”!  Or at least that’s what Monday always was in Louisiana, the day when all the laundry was washed, hung to dry, folded and put away.  There may have been a little bit of ironing as well.  As a result of that tradition one of the most delicious of …

The History in Gumbo

We will not be serving a "soup course" today because the hot entrée is a type of soup!  We have Gumbo for lunch!  It will be another “lunch in a bowl”. 

 

Gumbo is a lesson in culinary history and a celebration of the diversity of our country. It is a stew …

We're Eating from the Roof!

I know it’s only 2 work days since we turned the clocks back but because daylight comes so early now, I feel like I’m running late for work!

Lunch today has subtle touches of Greek influence

An interesting thing about today’s soup, Roasted Parsnip & Fennel Soup, is that the …
