Just say NO

just-say-no

A bunch of old ladies gather for tea at Mr. & mrs. C ‘s home. One of those ladies give a short speech. “Say NO, to drug,” then she sit back on her soft chair, she smiles as the other ladies applaud. She downs her coupe of champagne and smiles.

A job well done, this fund raiser will gather the few thousand of dollars, which will help to fund this lunch and more. Some of the  money left might dwindle to help some kid in the bario of Los Angeles.

All the ladies applaud the speaker, a job well-done.

A family card game, not quite

“A card game tonight, it will only be a few business associates.” Says Clint.

The card game did not turn out as expected. The guests did not look like business people––more like mafiosos, with all the implications coming along with the underworld.

Soufflé Potatoes

souffle_potato

Pierre’s challenge “The Soufflé Potatoes.”

Those “Darn Little Devils” do not necessarily puff on command. It is a trick in itself. Chefs have been know to commit suicide for failing to have them puff.

What’s the secret?

Thickness of the cuts, then when the potatoes are sliced. Keep those ‘Devils,’ cool in the ice box covered with a damp towel for at least 4 to 6 hours.

You will need two batch of olive oil at two different temperature.

Highest temp 1st. dump those devils in, for 5 minutes. Retrieve, place on top of dry towels, dry them ‘devils.’

When potatoes are cooled, dump then in second oil batch, within minutes they will puff. If they don’t… Your chef’s hat is gone, you are a nobody.
