  4. Chef Jae Gruber's---Food for thought on Valentines Day! Wed, 11 Feb 2009 13:34:38 EST
    by Chef Jae Gruber, Are you wondering if you should go out to dinner for Valentines Day or make a special dinner at home? While I cannot give you a perfect answer, I did take an informal survey of some of my friends and colleagues about what they would consider the perfect Valentines Day meal. I only received one common answer, which I will share with you at the end of this article. Aside from that common answer, I received only many ideas, as it would seem that everyone has a different idea of the perfect Valentines Day meal. Many people I spoke with said that if they went out to dinner, they didnt necessarily want to go to the fanciest restaurant in town, but rather the one that they and their partner have always been "meaning to" check out. That could mean the new local pizza place, that Korean restaurant down the street, or the Polish restaurant across town. Those that I talked to indicated that it was not about the price of the meal, it wasabout the adventure. More...

  6. Chef Jae Gruber's Wine Recommendations for the HolidaysFri, 19 Dec 2008 12:10:23 EST
    By Chef Jae Gruber, Hello everyone! Its the holiday season and time to celebrate. Are you wondering what wines may go with your holiday dinner? Or are you looking for a great bottle of wine to give to that "foodie" friend that you know? I have several great ideas for you. Pinot Noir! This happens to be my favorite grape and a wine that I consider to be the most "food friendly". In fact, I wish I had mentioned it to you for Thanksgiving, since it goes great with turkey. Yet, I know many people make turkey for Thanksgiving as well. Pinot Noir also goes well with salmon, halibut, mushrooms, sausages and mild and creamy cheeses. This is a great wine for the person that is not ready for intense Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Zinfandel or any of the "in your face" Italian and Spanish red wines. Here are some of my favorite Pinot Noir recommendations: More...

  3. One of the Most Aesthetically Appealing FoodsFri, 29 Jan 2016 10:46:10 -0600
    In Nihongo, which is the official and predominant language in Japan - the word, Sushi means "It's sour." Like any other gourmet delight sushi too has transitioned into a new form. Contrary to fresh fish that we now see in use, it actually used to be dried fish sandwiched between two pieces of vinegared rice. This was to make it last. To avoid the stickiness to the fingers, Nori, which is seaweed in Japanese, was added later. In the simplest words, Sushi is raw fish, and/or vegetables, pickles on a bed of vinegared rice that is rolled like a Swiss roll and then delicately and carefully cut into slices. Technically, the word sushi actually refers to the rice, however at a colloquial level, the term has come to mean artfully arranged morsel of shellfish or raw fish either - as is in the case of Sashimi - or on a bed of vinegared rice. With the rice on the outermost layer and colors of vegetables and fish enveloped in it when cut gives something which has an admirable aesthetic appeal, more than a food form. More...
