I love this show a Chefs life on PBS, does everybody have the TV channel PBS?
What I like about it is, its small town, it’s chef like too.
She goes to the farms where they grow the stuff they cook and serve in the restaurant and talks to the growers.

She even cry’s and may tell you the restaurant biz is not so fun all the time, It’s so real.
Love that, people see these TV shows where it all looks awesome and glamorous many times it sucks.

This BBQ joint goes thru 2000 pounds of cabbage a week!
So he calls his dad and asks how to make the slaw dressing and he says add “about this much of mayo and that much of mustard” HA! My mom said that same thing when I called about how to make bean soup at the restaurant.

I knew I made something right as she would tell people she made it.
If she messed up something she told em I did it.

Check it out…

Had never heard of garlic scapes.
Will try that next year as I just took in our garlic from the garden.
Drying the shallots now.
Going to make shallot salt.

If you ever make shallot salt you will find out why they don't make and sell shallot salt.
It is a pain in the butt, but it is very good.

Thanks for the heads up on the garlic scapes reminds me of Ramps.
Just planted ramps last years as well.

This is what I like about the show a Chefs life as they also talk about cooking ways and ingredients long forgotten.

Making watermelon pickles soon.

My first restaurant job was as a waiter at 1890's "Summer Cottage" on the Maine Coast. It was also an Inn and I lived on the 3rd floor. I did it for 5 seasons before and during college. Everything was "old school" service (vests-bow tie) w/ all courses included, tray service, serve from the left clear from the right...etc. We also passed a 4 item relish tray after serving the main course...the #1 chosen by FAR? The Pickled Watermelon Rind. We could never keep it stocked enough. I had never had it before then. We had older, well set guests....they were animals over that...thanks for rekindling the memory Skip! BTW, We love shallots...very KEY in Veal Marsala.

"We also passed a 4 item relish tray"

Went to a place that had this, man what a great idea!
You will love that show then, it's all the old south type stuff with all those old people in it.

Pickled Watermelon Rind is an Amish thing too, if you go to an Amish store they will have it.

"When you were in college in the 1890s? DAMN OGR, you're OLD!!!"

HA! that makes you about my age.
I started in high school, well working for another restaurant than my dads. (1977)
One of the places I worked at, Windward is still open!
Started working at our place as soon as I could do anything.

I swear my parents only had kids to staff that restaurant.

Concept experiment - I am wanting to cook paella on the beach in Mexico for 40 people. So I tried a test of 5 lbs of medium grain rice in a steam table pan on the BBQ. Worked out perfectly





I decided to scale back a bit and be safe so I made 2 big electric skillets of Paella instead, one with shrimp and crawdads and one with linguica and chicken

Tonight was home-made pizza night. Pizza #1 was white sauce with grilled marinated artichokes and mushrooms. Pizza #2 was red sauce with Italian sausage, bell peppers, green olives, sun dried tomatoes, banana peppers, and mushrooms

Mike your food looks good.
My brother brought some raw oysters over for lunch, unfortunately no one likes raw oysters in my household except me, I had a couple but a lot was left over. I found a recipe how to make fried oysters and it came out really good and tasty.

Thank you Hilda. Those oysters look much better fried than they do raw
