I picked up a slab of Skuna Bay Salmon today that had been smoked by a local meat market. They sold it fresh also, and said that while cutting it up it smelled almost like watermelon. I had never heard of Skuna Bay Salmon so I thought I’d give it a try. I’m very very glad I did. Wow, the salmon had amazing flavor ... Read More »

This fact is indisputable. Therefore, once we are able to believe that we are polluting the Earth and that it is terrible to do so, we can begin to look ... Read More »
I can remember chowing down on a Hungry Man frozen dinner since the beginning of time. When I was a kid and learned that I would be eating a Hungry Man for dinner that night, I admit that I got super excited. I pulled out my He-Man themed TV tray table and set it up in front of the tube while I waited for the ... Read More »

Kitchens are ... Read More »
Americans, like myself, I believe underestimate the power of a large plate of Fish and Chips. Personally I find it very difficult to even find on a menu, let alone on a menu of an establishment I trust not to screw it up. So I hear that England and the surrounding locale seems to be the hot-spot of the World for this Ultimate Gut Bomb. ... Read More »

Some how some way a passion for working with ingredients to create something special was seeded in a Chef’s childhood. For me, it was the Gourmet Glass of Water. I realize at first that a Gourmet Glass of Water sounds silly. Many ... Read More »
