823rd BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

HUMP DAY!


Bakersfield, CA, 02-21-2013 Th: One of the things that are making professional executive chefs crazy nowadays is the fact that Obamacare is beginning to take hold and more and more requirements are coming into effect.  The problem is that no one knows what the hell he or she is supposed to do until faced with something brought about by one of their employee’s problems.  Let us say that someone needs to take time off to have surgery on part of their body, we suddenly have to fill out all sorts of very explicit forms, which then have to go back and forth between the doctor and the employer and then onto the government.  If it is longer than one week but less than two, who pays the employee for their time off, is it the company, is it the government in the form of disability, or is the employee SOL? You know: “S--- out of luck?”  That seems to be precisely what is happening because it is becoming increasingly clear that no one knows all of the different parts of the Affordable Healthcare Act without hiring another full-time employee just to deal with the government’s numerous requirements, something many of us simply cannot afford to do.  Therefore, we have to hire “out,” we need to hire another company to assist our human resources department by dealing with all of the numerous, investigative, and bothersome rules and regulations connected with this heinous act!  I feel sorry for all of the low information voters who thought, “It was just about healthcare, nothing else!” I am here to tell you that, “No, it’s not: it’s about controlling the lives of everyone in the fricking workforce!”  
Loser!

I remember in 2008, everyone knew President Obama was not the man for the job but since the Republicans managed to go with another moderate, the old warhorse fuddy-duddy John McCain and the Alaskan inexperienced governor, we got what we did NOT want: a would-be dictator.  Sure, saying that makes me look like both a racist hater but I am sorry, I am tired of lying down and taking it up the back door because people on the left do not like what I say.  Where the hell was they when week-after-week, a new book about President George W. Bush’s “assassination” was on the nation’s bookshelves.  Where were they when this ultra-leftist and that called for some "brave soul" to murder the man while he slept?  Where were they when dunderheads like John Stewart and that little fruit, Colbert, were yucking it up about what it would be like to whack they guy?  Let me tell you where they were: they were nowhere!

Therefore, here we are now, living in a nation that is rapidly losing its independence because the people are sleeping, unaware, thinking that everything is peachy because Uncle Barack is going to take care of all their needs.  They gave us healthcare that require a whole new business of interpreters to guide us through it, we need to buy the book they advertise constantly on television, you know the one that costs about thirty bucks and guides us through the darkened hallways of one of the nation’s greatest blunders, this journey into socialized medicine.  I am telling you, people need to wake up and the Tea Party Patriots need to get off their ass and do something about it in 2014 or they can kiss their rear ends goodbye.  Yes, I know, a lot of them had to hold their noses to vote for Mitt Romney or avoid going to the polls and look what it brought us now, it brought us the seeds of dictatorship.  It also brought us more government control, it brought us a bloated Internal Revenue Service who now has the obligation to make sure that ALL of us have health insurance or know the reason “why.” I try to tell my ignorant sister-in-law, Lucy, to vote with your brain, not with your party in line. I told her, “yes, I am sure that Mr. Obama and his family are nice folks and all but let’s face it: anyone who disagrees with the man is automatically deemed to be a racist and a hater” as previously mentioned and before 2008, I was neither, I was an American.  God, why did they not elect Hillary Clinton in 2008 instead of this guy, the nation is lost, we are doomed, and at some point, I will end up breaking rocks in Gitmo. 

Well, there is little we can do about it now so at some point, in order to remain in business, I will have to knuckle under or prepare to move to Costa Rica in order to pursue a life amenable to my family and me.  I never thought I would ever say something like that but after the past three presidencies, we need to do something.  The Twenty-First Century is going to be the death of this nation, which to me, is sad, we once were the best nation in the world, now we are the place to come to take advantage of the benefits, the cheap labor, and to steal from those who still have something, what a life.  I need to find a place for my kids to grow up where they do not have to feel ashamed or worse, sent home because they wore a t-shirt with the nation’s flag on it just because it made the Mexican kids upset.  What has happened to us?

Today is HUMP DAY, so lest I forget it, let me say it now, it is the middle of the workweek for us and once this day is over, it will be downhill from here.  Today, we are going to make a different institutional-sized quickbread, we are making Cornbread, enough to fill a two-inch full hotel pan which feeds about 28-35 people or makes about one gallon of cornbread dressing.  Here we go, let’s do it and get it done!

(#0056) CORNBREAD FOR ONE HOTEL PAN—INSTITUTIONAL SIZE


Restaurants used cornbread all of the time but unfortunately, most of the time, they either deem their employees to be stupid or they are stupid, which means, they buy bag mixes from folks like Krusteaz* which is fine but not if one actually has a baker or knows how to bake oneself.  I always encourage modern-day kitchen “managers” or better, Chefs, to make their own baked goods instead of relying on their purveyors to sell them the exact same thing every chain restaurant in the nation uses.  Besides, if one cannot make their own style of cornbread, they need to go sell vegetables at the local grocery store and get out of professional foodservice.  This is an excellent easily made recipe; one everyone loves and usually adores so go for it, take the bull by the balls and begin liberating yourself by baking your own baked goods!

Yield:  One 2” hotel pan / Mis-en-place: 1.5 hours:



Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
3
Cups
All-purpose flour
3
Cups
Argo yellow cornmeal
.25
Cup
Baking powder
.125
Cup
Baking soda
.5
Cup
Bob’s Red Mill soy flour
.5
Cup
Nonfat dry milk
1
Tablespoon
Kosher salt
8
Large
AA eggs
.75
Cup
Granulated sugar
1.5
Cups
Vegetable oil
2
Cups
Whole milk
.125
Cup
Vanilla extract



Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work! Prepare a two-inch full hotel pan by spraying it heavily with PAM Baking Spray, Crisco Pan Spray, or some such other food release spray; then, line it with sheets of wax paper, and spray the paper heavily with food release spray, too.  Finally, sift a small amount of all-purpose flour across its bottom and then set the pan aside.  Place a pot of water atop the stove and bring it to a boil. 

2.     Double-sift the first SEVEN ingredients together and set then set them aside.  Hook up your Hobart mixer and outfit it with the paddle attachment.  Begin beating the eggs and sugar together at medium-high speed until you CREAM the mixture together.  Add the remaining ingredients, blending well, and then scrape down both the sides of the bowl and the paddle.

3.     Preheat standard oven to 400°F and place the oven rack directly in the middle or preheat the convection oven to 350°F with the switch in the “off” position until told to do otherwise. 

4.     Fold the DRY ingredients into the WET using the least amount of low speed-mixer-paddle-rotations to moisten the former with the wet: the idea is to blend the two components together without overmixing the batter, which overdevelops the flour’s gluten.  This causes the finished product to be both chewy and somewhat unappetizing so avoid this common pitfall at all costs.

5.     Rest the batter for 10-15 minutes; meanwhile, pour 1-2 inches of boiling water into another hotel pan placed upon the bottom floor of either oven to humidify the oven as this makes for a much more crumb-tender product, something professional bakers do all the time through the use of steam-injected specialized ovens.

6.     After stirring the batter with a rubber spatula, scrape it into the prepared pan, shaking it to settle the batter evenly throughout it.  Shake again, the place upon the middle rack of the preheated pre-humidified oven and remove the pan of water (or what is left) after five minutes.  If using the convection oven, flip the switch to “on” now and bake.  After 15 minutes, drop the heat by 25°F and continue baking for another 40-45 minutes OR until a toothpick, inserted dead center, withdraws “clean;” then, pull the pan out, place atop a cooling rack, and cool it for 5-10 minutes before de-panning it.

7.     To remove the cornbread, place an inverted, second two-inch hotel atop the first with a sheet of wax paper between the two, then, with a quick move, flip the pan containing the bread upside-down as fast as possible, causing it to fall out onto the top of the second pan.  If it does NOT quite slip out, GENTLY shake the pan to loosen it and it should FALL OUT EASILY—this is where heavy spraying of the food release spray plus the wax paper plus the flour-dusting pays off—it gets the bread to pop out upside down on top of the second pan.

8.     Peel off the wax paper remaining on top of the bread now revealing a beautiful, golden-hued yellow loaf.  Cut into portions and then place into bun-warming drawers for lunch or dinner service.  Serve with freshly whipped honey butter (or any other flavored butter of your choice) plus red raspberry preserves, the PERFECT accompaniment for ALL cornbreads!

9.     If you have leftover cornbread, wrap it in stacks upon wax paper and then seal up tight in Ziploc freezer bags.  Label, date, and freeze, keeping there for no longer than 3-5 days at most and be sure to use it within that time.  Otherwise, it is perfect for making cornbread dressing for poultry, fish, or any other product with which you wish to marry it.  If not used within that time, toss it out, start anew, and good luck! 

This is a professional-sized cornbread recipe, perfect for any-and-all needs.  It is tasty, looks and smells great, and is better than the kind Mom used to make.  

*No insult to the Krusteaz Company, they make wonderful products, it is just a shame that modern kitchen personnel have to use them.

YOU IS WHAT YOU IS

          You have to excuse me for saying what I did today, I know that yesterday, we managed not to bash Mr. Obama but today, it sort of got to me as I have staff members trying to wend their way through the myriad complexities of the Affordable Healthcare Act, its requirements, and the associated agonies connected to it.  To tell you the truth, I feel like going home and putting on my Mothers of Invention albums and remembering the days back when before we had to worry about any of this crap.  You know, if they sealed the border and reinstituted some sort of Bracero Program, we would not have the issues we do but sadly, that is never going to happen.  The best way the Republicans can win the battle against socialized medicine is by somehow getting all of the illegals registered to vote as Republicans and NOT as Democrats.  You see, that is the one thing I do NOT understand: the Hispanic people as well as the Blacks and even the Asians are basically conservative folks, big on family, work hard, the whole deal.  Yet, they never question the Dems when they tell them (the minorities) that Republicans hate them, they just take them for granted, send them to the back of the bus, and kiss the rear ends of the Gays.  People wake up! The government is using you and me, seize your independence back and join us in the Republican Party, we all think alike, you do NOT like abortion, we do not like abortion, we are ONE people so join us!  Ah, well, talk to you tomorrow, as Stinkbug says, “It is what it is” and to me, “it’s over and done.”                                                                           
SHIP ARRIVING TOO LATE TO SAVE A DROWNING WITCH
