  46. <p>(Look at the reflection in the &#8220;Glass&#8221; of the Fritatta )</p>
  47. <p>I have been planning this dish for a couple of weeks and now I got what I wanted. I do not usually talk about the flavor of the dish instea I just tell you what is in it but, this time I have to say that it was awesome. The braised proscuito took an entire day and if I had to write a recipe from the beginning of the raw pork leg then it would take like a year to make. hahaha.<a title="fritatta-carbonara-2.jpg" href="https://thepowerofpassion.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=233" rel="attachment wp-att-233"><img style="width:257px;height:217px;" src="https://thepowerofpassion.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/fritatta-carbonara-2.jpg?w=257&#038;h=217" alt="fritatta-carbonara-2.jpg" width="257" height="217" /></a> I came up with the Fritatta &#8220;Lava&#8221; the other day and was very pleased with the results so I worked on the rest of the components the last couple of days. After you break open the &#8220;Fritatta&#8221; the outer layers are like a light quiche (if you will) and the inside is a molten truffle custard. Everything came out exactly as planned (which never, ever, ever, happens), except for the fact that IT WAS SO HUMID IN THE KITCHEN EVEN AS I PLATED THE DISH THE &#8220;GLASS&#8221; WAS GETTING SOFT AND BENDING ON IT&#8217;S OWN! so I guess it never happens but,</p>
  48. <p>I am very proud to present this to you.<a title="fritatta-carbonara-1.jpg" href="https://thepowerofpassion.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=234" rel="attachment wp-att-234"><img style="width:267px;height:225px;" src="https://thepowerofpassion.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/fritatta-carbonara-1.jpg?w=267&#038;h=225" alt="fritatta-carbonara-1.jpg" width="267" height="225" /></a></p>

The main component is a roasted candy stripe beet. and it is glazed in a golden beet and black berry gastrique. The gastrique was seasoned with carraway and citrus an thickened with xantham gum. On the plate every part of the root is prepared, the leaves, skin, juice, meat, cooked, and raw. It was finished with chervil and orange rind.</p>

  126. <p>Recently we were invited to do a dinner at Paradise Farms in Homestead Florida. The best way to describe what Paradise Farms is its a smaller more hippy version of Chefs Garden in Ohio. They grow everything from vegetables, lettuces, herbs, flowers, to star fruit and squash. My Favorite part of the day was being able to just go out and forage whatever we wanted to use for that nights menu.</p>

  128. <p>We were paired up for the dinner with the Chef team from the Loews Hotel headed by Frederic Delaire. Jacob and I tag teamed the first course. We tried to use as much products from the farm as possible. The dish was a modern take a generally basic dish of &#8220;Tuna Nicoise&#8221;. Classically Tuna Nicoise always includes tuna, whether the tuna is poached, seared, or raw. The vegetables can array from; lettuces, artichokes, tomatoes, Haricot Verts (french green beans), potatoes, olives, herbs, sweet peppers, and more. There is usually a hard boiled egg and a vinaigrette of just lemon and olive oil. With so many options of what to do it was really hard for us to stop adding ingredients, especially with all the great items we got to forage before the dinner. This is what we ended up doing (imagine plating 55 of these at one time)</p>

  130. <p style="text-align:center;">&#8220;Tuna Nicoise&#8221;</p>
  131. <p style="text-align:left;">The tuna was presented in three different preparations:</p>
  132. <p style="text-align:left;">Sashimi Yellowfin Tuna</p>
  133. <p style="text-align:left;">Raw sashimi style with coriander salt</p>
  134. <p style="text-align:left;">Smoked over moss and spices</p>
  135. <p style="text-align:left;">Tuna Rillette Confit, slightly cured and poached SV in olive oil and aromatics in order to obtain the same texture that you would get from duck confit. This was pulled and folded with a fine&#8217; herb aioli and sliced Haricot Verts (from the farm).</p>
  136. <p style="text-align:left;">Other Components Include:</p>
  137. <p style="text-align:left;">Organic 63C Egg Yolk Jam (Yellow sauce on the plate and Paradise provided the eggs)</p>

  146. <p style="text-align:left;">The second course was a local snapper ceviche with a really interesting presentation where there was sangre de tigre in one part and the guest was instructed to pour the juice over the snappper and enjoy in the the other cup (these were one time use and throw away after the dish was served). Kind of an interesting choice of service vessels since this was a dinner on an organic farm where everything that was not served on a plate was sent to compost for fertilization, and we were not allowed to use any land animal meat at all for the dinner including snails for the risotto (next course), but here is the pic.</p>

  156. <p style="text-align:center;">Carnaroli Risotto, Chanterelle Mushroom, Forest Floor, and Alba White Truffles</p>
  157. <p style="text-align:left;">Chef Joel went around to each guest and shaved fresh white truffles onto each of the risottos. This pic only shows what goes under the bowl of rice and we placed hot rocks into the moss and aromatics then poured an mushroom and herb tea so the steam reminds the guests of the &#8220;Forest Floor&#8221;. Also he foraged nasturtium leaves, dollar leaves, and wood sorrel.</p>

  224. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>Last night was a dinner that I have been waiting for a few months to cook. We had 35 of the best guests from the local Cobaya diner group. Cobaya is a name for a guinea pig in latin america and this name suits the concept of the diners perfectly. They go around about once a month to another location eating a &#8216;underground&#8217; dinner either at a restaurant, or art gallery, wine cellar, etc. There were a lot of Miami biggest foodies like <a href="http://thechowfather.com">TheChowfather</a>, who is one of the organizers and the cities premier food blogger, with his partner <a href="http://foodforthoughtmiami.com">Frodnesor</a> but, the biggest name of the night is the host of Travel Channels Bizarre Foods, Andrew Zimmern. The whole camera crew was there throughout the afternoon and evening filming for the new season.</p>

  226. <p>We served 8 courses and the dinner was a huge success. I can&#8217;t wait until July when it airs. Last time I had a chance to be on a show like this was when Anthony Bourdain came to L2o and I didn&#8217;t make it onto the show, even though I was in the kitchen the whole time. I wasn&#8217;t able to get a photo of each course but I do have a couple, and a link to flickr where you can see the whole thing (<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/foodforthoughtmiami/sets/72157628412280919/">Flickr Link</a>). We wanted to use interesting local produce and seafood. Trigger fish was one we really wanted to serve but is was unavailable (out of season I guess). Jacob Anaya did get some awesome Pumpkin Swordfish and made an awesome dish with it. I had never worked with it before but, it is amazing with the color of orange salmon and an awesome clean flavor. The Uni was harvested from Joel&#8217;s hometown in California by a childhood friend. The snails on the risotto are especially awesome, they are small and tender and are fed only basil. For the dessert the strawberries I used were from Dover, FL, and they had an awesome flavor and an interesting torpedo like shape, and the sour oranges were also from Florida.</p>

  243. <p style="text-align:left;">The dessert was one of the dishes I was responsible for so I will go into a little detail about it. In the center of the plate is a sable butter cookie that is soft and chewy with chunks of toasted sesame toffee folded in. On top of that is a sour orange curd whipped in the ISI with three charges and garnished with a sliced strawberry. Draped over that is a strawberry and lemongrass consomme set with agar and low acyl gellan. The piping around the plate is a strawberry curd that almost tastes like a cheese cake filling. The shriveled up strawberry was cooked sous vide in a strawberry gastrique then dehydrated until it was one third its original size and then re-marinated back in the gastrique to make a sweet and sour flavor and chewy texture. There is a block of raw strawberry that is coated in dextrose, which gives it the same effervescent effect you get when eating a fun dip or pixy stick. A grey pile is on the plate of toasted black sesame seed oil and is to mimic the white sesame seed cookie. The final touches on the plate are anise hyssop, thai basil, and strawberry marinated cardamom shoots.</p>

  356. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>Last month I was able to  go back to the technical school in Kansas City that started my whole career. The school is called Broadmoor Technical Center, and is no ordinary satellite school. Everyday I would leave my regular highschool and got to BTC where I took two years of culinary arts classes. The Chef Instructor is Bob Brassard, the difference between Bob and every other high school culinary arts or home ec teacher is that bob was a REAL Chef. At one point he was an award winning chef in Florida and Nantucket and has seen the ins and outs of fine dining.</p>
  357. <p>Each month at Broadmoor we would do a &#8220;Bistro&#8221; where we would serve up to 100 guests a five course meal. Now the school district has built them an entire restaurant. With one of the cities nicest dining rooms, a terrace, a full scale bakery, and a huge kitchen with an open pass. They still do the bistros but now they are weekly ( I believe on wednesdays) throughout the school year. I was invited back along with two other previous students to do an Alumni dinner. I do not have the photos of the entire dinner but I do know the menu;</p>
  358. <p style="text-align:center;">First Course</p>
  359. <p style="text-align:center;">Squab Apicious, Smoked Swiss Chard Custard, Wheat Vinegar Jus, Frisee</p>

  374. </a>The Heart of Palm is made to represent the part of the &#8220;Fallen Tree&#8221; and the rest of the dish would be things that grow and live on or near a fallen tree in the forest. I really would like to follow up this dish and do it again in a more professional setting and I definitely will put this in my repertoire. It was a difficult dish to pull off doing 55 at one time in a sort of banquet style setting but on a tasting menu in a proper setting with a little bit more reconstructing I believe it has a lot of potential.</p>

  426. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>The other day I went over to our croyvac machine and started to shove leaves of red cabbage into large croyo bags. Another very intelligent Chef  was staring at me from the corner of his eye, thinking &#8220;What is he doing Now!?! and I immediatly said, &#8220;How else do you make Borscht&#8221;. To many this make not make sense but between Will and I it was all that was needed to be said. We see how everyone works, reacts, and moves on a daily basis so it is pretty easy for us to read eachother especially when someone is up to something&#8230;.</p>

  428. <p>Okay So I had six bags of cryovaced red cabbage, then I took up all the room in another guys circulator bath&#8230;oops&#8230;(of course he still got his veg. cooked). The cabbage was cooked at 85 C for 1 hr. and 15 min. then pureed with roasted shallots, white soy, fish sauce, and local honey. It was important to me to make sure that it still tasted like cabbage, was bright purple but, of course was delicious.</p>

  430. <p>I did some research on borsht and have spoke to Russians, Ukranianes, and other easter Europeans over the years and there is such a variety of different types of borscht its crazy. It can be red, green, light, heavy, hot, cold, filled with meat, boar, shellfish, vegetarian, beets, cabbage, sour, rich, Russian,&#8230; the list goes on and on. So yes that leaves me with a lot of room for a broad interpretation but I do not want to disrespect such a widely respected international staple.</p>
