The Ginger Julep '68 Fastback

Sometimes all it takes is a bit of classic understated elegance to complete a look. Standing around holding some toxic color cocktail when you're a stand-up individual just doesn't always work. This libation culminates so exquisitely because of the high grade ingredients used and the simplicity in which it is created. Add this recipe to your arsenal of straightforward yet effective cocktails.

The Ginger Julep ’68 Fastback
1 .5 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
.5 oz. Organic Brown Sugar
¼ oz.  Peeled Minced Fresh Ginger
1.5 oz. Soda Water
1 Lemon or Lime Twist

Muddle the ginger and brown sugar together until all of the sugar is moistened and nearly dissolved.
Add a dash of soda to finish dissolving the sugar, stir in your Bourbon.
Finish with ice, soda to taste and a lemon or lime twist.

Student Walkout at Culinary Institute of America

The Culinary Institute of America. [Photo: CIA / Facebook]

(Paula Forbes & Eater.com recently ran this piece which is direct evidence that no matter what you do, always question what you are being told, especially when it involves your future and your bank account.)

Students at the Culinary Institute of America staged a walkout protest yesterday, with about a fifth of the school's attendees demonstrating. According to the New York Times, they were protesting "a weakening enforcement of educational standards," including perceived lowered standards for admittance and graduation as well as rapid expansion. Students at the protest wore nametags declaring the amount of debt they had accrued going to the CIA; one student who spoke to the Times owes $87,500.

But are academic standards weakening? According to the school's provost, admissions standards, at least, are actually going up. The president of the student government told the Times he finds the protest "childish."
This is not the first time the spirit of revolution has seized the students at the CIA. Back in 2008, students demonstrated against CIA president Tim Ryan, complaining that the school's relationship with corporate food led to students learning institutionalized food preparations and lowered academic standards overall.
Students involved in the protest yesterday told the Times they were trying to preserve the reputation of the school, in order to protect their investment in their education. But is culinary school even worth the massive debt, regardless of academic standards? Eh, people have mixed feelings about that.

*The Supreme Plate - Editors Note: As a former graduate from a major Culinary institution here in the United States, who upon graduation was also handed an outlandish bill for my less than 2 years on campus I understand where these students are coming from. The interest in being a Chef or working in the food industry has blown up beyond what anyone could have predicted, especially those currently working in the field. The problem that Culinary many students are facing (i.e. tuition and the taxation that is applied via Sallie Mae & other lenders, the inability to find a good job after graduation and more) is something that most college graduates are forced to deal with upon completing their “program” of choice. You will hear the usual gripes of “I am now a Chef, I deserve to be making $65,000 a year and running a restaurant by now” or my favorite so far “I really didn’t learn anything that I didn’t already know” but the most alarming of them all is “I have graduated and now I really don’t want to go work in a kitchen” or I just simply refuse to pay dues. What it all boils down too, is the frightening fact that we truly live in a day and age of instant gratification. The majority of the students attending Culinary schools across America are very young in age (18-22) and have no clue what they want to be in life so they jumped at a choice to attend a college aimed at making them the most popular thing to be on TV these days, a Chef. I was speaking with a Chef Instructor of mine recently who had left his position at Le Cordon Bleu and had gone back to working in a restaurant. He was telling me that yes he loved the light hours he worked while being a teacher but that the overall lack of desire and the over crowding of the classes (which can directly be attributed too greed and the overall goal of making money,) drove him right out of a job he truly loved performing day in and out. The commercials make it seem as if you go to school, graduate and become a celebrity overnight, which is far from the truth. As in any career the desire to perform the necessary tasks to help you achieve your goals must be present and with today’s students having little to no desire to hustle up a career, it is frightening to think of who will be manning the helm at our favorite eateries over the next decade or so. I applaud the students who took the risk of walking out of class to prove their point, that in itself could have been grounds for dismissal at an institute as prestigious as CIA, but must ask this question did you truly not listen to what the enrolling agent was telling you about the completion rates, final costs and added interests to your loans would be & finally did you not think to ask around from previous graduates as to what they experienced upon completing such an expensive program?

Recipe Of The Day: Deviled Eggs

A recipe for an old school good time…
Summertime is the time for getting your backyard BBQ / park function on. This is the time of year where old relatives bust out some of those good classic recipes no one else can seem to master, but yet everyone thinks they can make.
It is times such as these where the weather is incredible and the action in the streets is endless, where you must have a few tricks up your sleeve, should you be called upon to bring something to a party. Take your friends back to an era where time was spent making dishes and flavor was of the highest importance, instead of what couldbe easily be grabbed at the liquor store, by making some of these Spicy Deviled Eggs. The recipe here calls for 6 because that obviously turns into 12 eggs, but simply double the recipe as many times as you would life to get the right amount you need for your next function. Deviled Eggs are not some thing from the passed that no one enjoys anymore, rather quite the opposite, for many of us they are a throwback treat to the times in life where an older relative took the time to bring something that was packed with simple flavors that could be eaten before the enormous meal was prepared for the day. That takes time and thought, something you just don’t always see these days.

6 Eggs, hard boiled, cooled, and peeled cut in half and yolks removed
2 TBS Mayonnaise
1 tsp Spicy Brown Mustard
1 tsp White Wine or Champagne Vinegar
Hot Sauce
Smoked Paprika
Cayenne Powder
Kosher Salt
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

Place the egg yolks in a bowl.
Using a fork, work the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, hot sauce, salt and pepper into the yolks to form a smooth paste.
Taste and check your seasoning, go gently on the salt prior to mixing, you can always add more, but adding too much will ruin the taste quickly.
Place the mixture in a small pastry bag with a large star tip.
Fill the egg halves with the filling.
Top with paprika & cayenne powder
Keep cold until served but use within a couple of hours of being made for optimum freshness.
Place on a chilled platter and serve.

Knife Fight Premiers April 23rd

Led by ringleader and celebrated chef Ilan Hall, this is where talented cooks go to prove who's the best. Feel the heat as they're cheered and heckled by a rowdy crowd of celebrities, restaurant critics, and die-hard foodies. This is not a white-napkin dinner. This is war and this is what TV needs to spice things up. For those of you who hve never worked in a kitchen or had a job where talking trash too your co-workers was the high point of the day this is the kind of show you may want too check out.

Boodles British Gin

Gin doesn't always get the respect it deserves nowadays. With all of these fancy, colorful and celebrity-endorsed liquors coming out, the juniper berry derived nectar of the Gods somehow seems to fall by the wayside when drinks are being ordered. Boodles British Gin, a classic brand that was a favorite of Winston Churchill’s, stands tall above its competitors merely because of how smooth and mild its flavors are especially when mixed into a classic cocktail. A few years back, Gin was all the rage as people began re-experimenting with classic Martini recipes and other Gin based drinks. But as times changed and people began focusing their attention elsewhere, many brands were left shaking their heads in disbelief at how fast the climate changed in the world of mixology. 

Boodles Gin, a longtime favorite libation base to quite a few of our British friends is not what you would expect it be considering its rather cost friendly price. Mixing up a couple of colorful cocktails yesterday after a long day in the test kitchen we decided two things; 1. Boodles deserves to be our house brand of Gin from here on out and 2. Boodles will have you not leave you with a headache the next morning (that is unless you're a sloppy drinker and you should probably be seeking help elsewhere, not in a bottle.) We took the smooth route and put a slight spin on a few old world classics such as the and had a quite relaxing evening, while plotting the next days debauchery out.

Our favorite drink of the night came simply from pouring 1 part Boodles Gin over ice into a chilled rocks glass, adding 2 parts Ginger Ale & 1 thin slice of Lime. I believe they call that a Gin Gin in certain circles but we ended up calling the “Gin Limey.” A few of those will have you ready for just about anything, so this is where you must make sure to have a designated driver close by, cause you will get hungry eventually.

The end result, get your hands on a few bottles before the weekend arrives and practice the fine art of cocktail making at home. Your friends will love you and appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Enjoy Responsibly.

Places to Eat at Coachella 2013

Palm Springs is world renowned for its leisurely activities. Whether in town for a weekend at one of the many luxurious spas, a few rounds of golf or taking some time to act a fool with a few friends at Coachella, Palm Springs is an out of the way gem amongst the many places to find a bit of peace and tranquility in California. With Coachella just a few days away, now is the time to put together a game plan for where you will want to eat after a few live shows, some good ol’ fashioned pushing and shoving to move through the crowds and of course some over priced drinks.

The food court is going to be amazing this year with heavyweights such as Ruths Chris, The Lime Truck, Clover Juice, Spicy Pie, Epic Burritos and our favorite Pink’s Hotdogs providing food for the masses (should you have access to the areas they may be located in.) That being said, when the lines are too long and you just can’t seem to see waiting any longer, check out a few of the great restaurants located below, because thanks to our good friends over at Eater, a list has been compiled of the local haunts you may want to check out when it comes time to refuel and escape the hipster madness.

To everyone who will be attending Coachella this weekend and the following weekend, be safe there will be a tremendous amount of police on the scene so be discrete with your methods of tom foolery and once again stay hydrated.

Two Degrees, Buy Their Products & Help Feed Hungry Children Worldwide

Brands built on the premise of giving back and helping the inhabitants of this world see another day, should be praised and spoken about frequently. Two Degrees, a company whose main focus is to help feed hungry children recently caught our attention at the Natural Products Expo, in Anaheim.
We took notice of Two Degrees, not because they had silly dressed characters passing out free samples, but because their mission statement was so prominently displayed. Their obvious desire to help any child who is hungry, get a square meal was felt after only a few seconds of conversation with one of their cheerful reps.

Too many companies nowadays say they are helping people who can’t seem to find a square meal no matter how hard they try, but in all actuality they are only lining their own pockets and avoiding having to pay taxes on their earnings. Two Degrees is not one of those "Culture Vulture" kind of companies.

TwoDegrees manufactures nutritious, delicious bars that are healthy, natural, and gluten free. They are consciously crafted with real fruit, nuts, seeds and heritage grains like chia, quinoa and millet.
We took a few days to snack on a couple of their bars such as the Apple Pecan, Cherry Almond & Chocolate Banana and found ourselves having bit more energy throughout the morning. A delicious snack that you can feed to your Vegan friends, that actually is involved in World affairs is a brand we respect and admire.

TwoDegrees makes it simple for their customers to do good. For every bar sold, they give a meal to a hungry child. The support from their customers allows them to fight childhood hunger both domestically and globally.
At Two Degrees, they purchase nutrient rich meals and medically formulated nutrition packs and whenever possible, these products are produced locally in the region they will be distributed - in this way, the purchase a customer makes of one Two Degrees bar also supports local economies.
Working closely with reputable companies such as Valid Nutrition, Two Degrees also helps communities begin to thrive by creating jobs for the locals and source most of their ingredients from local farmers. 

TwoDegrees provide meals to regions around the world that have been with famine by working alongside a network of non-profit partners in developing countries. Each of these organizations has dedicated distribution channels for the meals through health clinics, schools, and community groups in areas where children are suffering from chronic hunger or malnutrition. By donating one locally produced meal for each Two Degrees bar purchased, Two Degrees helps these organizations to provide needed meals to children.

To date, Two Degrees has donated regionally produced and supplied meals to children in the United States via Feeding America, Haiti, India, Kenya, Malawi and Somalia through Action Against Hunger, Akshaya Patra, IMA World Health, Partners in Health, Relief International and Valid Nutrition.

Food Fight - Saving Kids From Eating Processed Junk ft. Stic.Man of Dead Prez (Video)

Busta Rhymes Flips Out in Miami Over His Hamburger....

Busta Rhymes is no stranger to controversy. He has over the years been involved in fist fights, shootouts that left his bodyguard & close friend slain and more recently got caught up yelling at homosexuals and business owners because of their inability to serve him his hamburger as he so ordered. Reportedly Mr. Smith had the police called on him for yelling obscenities at Stephanie Vitori & her staff at late night Miami hangout Cheeseburger Baby when his burger arrived with ketchup, salt, pepper and mayo on the side (something Cheeseburger Baby does with every order, to prevent soggy buns.) After calling Vitori and her employees a series of “F*gs & B!tches” Bussa Buss down something left the scene with his burger in tow. Vitori, a lesbian said she has hosted thousands of late night customers, many of whom are celebrities and has never felt so “degraded.” 

Last time I got a good look at Busta Rhymes, he seemed to be back in the gym and on his get in shape grind, which means he most likely is back on his no bullshit practices. People want to say he is on steroids, but I refuse to speculate on that. A while back a video surfaced where Pharrell was talking about how Busta Rhymes was unwilling to talk to legendary & now openly gay rapper Afrika Baby Bambaataa (of Jungle Brothers fame) because of his mode of dress and overtly gay mannerisms. Many people speculate that his over the top comments are due to his feelings being hurt that his ex girlfriend who is the mother of his 3 children is now a lesbian. Whatever the reasons may be for his wildin’, get it together Busta, cause no one wants to see you in jail or broke from the lawsuits these kinds of things can bring about.
