Friday the 24 join me at the SECRET SUSHI SOCIAL in Campbell, CA. you can buy tickets and get more info at Secret Sushi Social.

Sorry to miss a couple days. I was wine tasting in Napa  with the CEO of the Arizona Diamondbacks Derrick Hall and Owner of the team Jimmy Weber. We were joined by their beutiful wives Amy Hall and Cindy Weber. We started the day at Frairs  

From USATODAY, Meryl Streep as Julia Child. I think Dan Aykroyd did the best Julia-“I seem to have cut the dickens out of my finger.”

How do you sell sustainability? From Marketing Daily, The way companies are using the term to make money. 

Everyone is looking for value. From WSJ, Chefs and patrons are all looking for a good deal. This article also has a link to the third annual Chef Survey. 

Breakfast for dinner, What???- From Chicago Sun times, many restaurants are offering breakfast based dinner items with an evening flair.

From the Telegraph, The complexity of cooking with brown sugar.

New York’s new Gastropub. From Travel and Leisure, Pork focused menu….

Have a great Friday,

Wednesday CRU-(Culinary Round up)-Monsanto ( cue the evil music), Chef Andrés 4 stars, Chef Secretes, Lemon Ricotta Hot Cakes, and Breakfast for dinner.

Posted by chefmax on February 18, 2009


Count Down to Launch of phase 2- February 23 at 12:01 am. 5 days left!

Now on to the round up for today.

Monsanto at it again- This time India and then Indonesia. From Reuters. This corn is suspect at best. The farmers that grow it in the U.S. do not even eat it. It needs to be processed for consumption.

4 stars for The Bazaar in LA. Chef José Andrés has hit gold in Los Angeles. Last November when I was working at the CIA event at Greystone Chef Andrés was just putting his finishing touches on the site. He almost had to back out of the event, which he was the keynote person for. I talked with him and he was really excited about this venture but also very tired. I am glad it is getting the attention it deserves. From the LATIMES.

Chef secretes for cutting cost. From SFGATE. Nice article. Not really secret though. Maybe I am jaded. Possible.

Lemon Ricotta hot cakes- Sounds good right about now. From the 4 seasons Hotel via .

Breakfast for dinner- What ?- Inside joke from one of my old restaurants. Anyway, from the NYTIMES, M. Bittan’s article. 

I will have a roasted leg of lamb recipe on here later today. Don’t touch that dial( or mouse)
