The wonderfulness that is bacon grease

The wonderfulness that is bacon grease

The other day I was boasting on a recent meal I completed which included pretty much everything good in a kitchen from 1898: potato, onion, garlic, cheese, jalapeno and — the coup de grace — bacon. (In a #6 cast iron skillet, layer the bacon so it hangs out the sides of the skillet. Layer […]

A tale of 2 restaurants, or entrepreneurial stories

A tale of 2 restaurants, or entrepreneurial stories

“Interesting,” thought I, starting to connect imaginary dots in the sky before me. “Two of my favorite restaurants have decided, on their own and separate of each other, to think outside the box and try something new.” What is interesting, at least to me, is beyond the newness of their actions, were some dichotomies between […]
