  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...
  1. Tomatoes - From Poison to PizzaTue, 09 Jan 2018 08:18:46 -0600
    We know tomatoes to be a staple of Italian cuisine, but it was the Aztecs and other South American cultures who had been eating them as far back as 700 A.D. Surprisingly, the popular vegetable (actually classified as a fruit) did not arrive in Western Europe, specifically Italy, until mid-sixteenth century. Europeans viewed them as poisonous, and when they took up residency in America around 1824, it was because of Thomas Jefferson's vegetable garden. So how did this wildly popular vegetable become one of the most beloved ingredients in so many cuisines the world over? It's a long story. More...
  2. Lobster - A Rags to Riches StoryMon, 08 Jan 2018 08:29:39 -0600
    Lobster, the Rolls Royce of shellfish, was once considered the "cockroach of the ocean." It seems unimaginable, especially when we open a menu at a nice restaurant and see those chilling words "market price." But in colonial times, for residents in Massachusetts and points north, it was considered rock bottom on the food chain, fit for peasants, servants or farm animals. Oh, to go back to those days when lobster was so plentiful it was sneered at. Well, this shellfish is doing the sneering now, commanding top dollar in grocery stores and restaurants. It is said that live lobsters scream when dropped into a kettle of boiling water, but the screaming more likely comes from the customer contemplating the price. More...
  3. Thomas Jefferson: The Original FoodieThu, 04 Jan 2018 08:16:47 -0600
    Thomas Jefferson and Julia Child would have gotten along famously. The former television chef is often given credit for introducing French cuisine to Americans, but it was actually Jefferson's French-trained chef who served up his favorite recipes from Paris more than two centuries ago. Invitations to state dinners and casual repasts at his Virginia estate were eagerly accepted, as lucky guests had the opportunity to sample new dishes, unique French discoveries and gallons of imported wines. A brilliant scholar, statesman, patriot, gardener, author and president, Jefferson may best be remembered for his culinary passion and love of fine wine. The third President of the United States was clearly the original foodie. More...
