The fresh way to go..

freshThe best way chefs have great food is food that real honest fresh from where its grown. It was for years that people had fruits and vegetables with so many added things that made the food not so fresh. This is great news for the chefs these days as it raises the bar for taste and color and presentation of the food. The great thing about the organic movement these days is it bringing back the foods that you usually would not think is very good for you but in all in all it the best thing for your body needs to refresh you body. Organic meaning is fresh which is USDA approved . The crazy thing is that People who sell or label a product “organic” when they know it does not meet USDA standards can be fined up to $11,000 for each violation. As in most case from the other produce to organic is that protection from Chemicals. As being a chef myself i love the idea of having the true product of what i cooking without extra added things. The case of that chefs use more farm raised fish these days and for the love of the animals.cheffish

The big moment of chefs using cheaper fish to help replenish the fish population of like tuna and ect.They do this just so that we can repopulate the fish. if you were to have fish n chips using Alaskan pollack as a substitute. Chilean Sea Bass As a substitute for any preparation, try Alaskan sablefish. Also know as black cod, these fish share the same buttery, rich flesh, which can be cooked using almost any method. Sablefish is available year round and is quite a bit less expensive than Chilean sea bass. These are great tools on saving some the fish in sea that way over used.

The Dirty Dozen

It second way of listing my most resent blog

Mama To FG Kids

Have you ever had bad reactions to apples, strawberries or grapes? You wanna know my thoughts on it? It’s all about buying organic/pesticide-free. Those 3 are part of the dirty dozen. They are the food items with the HIGHEST levels of pesticides. And we ingest that. Ouch! If you want to live better and avoid all that cr*p, you need to buy those organic and/or stick to the Clean 15 list (those with the least amounts).

Image

So, when you go grocery shopping, look for fruits/veggies with a PLU sticker number that starts with a 9 (5-digit) for organic for the dirty dozen, and a 4-digit number that starts with a 3 or a 4, for the clean 15 if you dont mind them having been sprayed with chemicals… DO NOT buy products with codes beginning with an 8 (GMO’s!)

Yes, Chef

blaise's book feast

27book-img2-articleInlineYes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson

I’ve been reading a lot of chef memoirs lately. I like the grime and the glamor of the professional kitchens.  Anthony Bourdain provided my first salacious foray into the world of haute cuisine.  Marcus Samuelsson, on the other hand, is the anti-Bourdain.  Where Bourdain is a foul mouthed, loose cannon, who is an occasional genius in the kitchen, Samuelsson is quietly hardworking, channeling the Nordic values of his adoptive Swedish family into his ironclad work ethic, with tremendous results.

Born in Ethiopia in a small village, his family was ransacked by tuberculosis, which ultimately killed his mother.  After her death, small Marcus and his sister were adopted by a kind, grounded Swedish family.  Marcus thrived in Sweden, becoming an adept athlete and loving all things outdoors.  He also fell in love with cooking, a heritage imbued by his grandmother.  After graduating high school, Samuelsson spent…

Daily Recipe: Spiced Mixed Nuts

in.gredients

nutsAs promised, here’s another super bowl recipe. It’s not a football party until you have cold beer and a bowl of nuts. Instead of going and buying the regular salted mixed nuts, consider spicing it up. This mix has a unique blend of spices, and won’t have any high-fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils like many of the conventional nut mixes you buy at the store.

It’s the perfect time to experiment with making your own spiced nuts as we’re having our Big Nut Sale this week. We have raw almonds, whole cashews, walnuts, slivered almonds, pistachios and roasted almonds on sale from January 29 through February 4th. Check out the prices here.
