KITCHEN NOBILITY—THE SAUCIER



Kitchen Nobility, Part XXXIV: Chef Olaf takes a Trip down Memory Lane by pulling an Italian “Rabbit” out of his Hat: Cacciatore Sauce!” by Chef Olaf Bologolo



849th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

Minority House Leader, Nancy Pelosi, Democrat-California
 

Bakersfield, CA, 03-19-2013 T:  Lately, all sorts of things have been happening which have made me reconsider some of the positions I have taken over the past, the most important of which, is my viewpoint on the Affordable Care Act.  Never quite a member of the Healthcare Bandwagon, I now am actively opposed to this horrendous act as not only is it going to destroy the once thriving American economy, it is going to prove disastrous for all business owners, big or small.   I recently found out that the healthcare plan I offer my employees must be adopted by ALL of them and that if one of them finds it to be oppressive or too expensive and has to go elsewhere for insurance, I either have to match whatever he or she finds for ALL of my workers or pay $2,000 in fines per worker per year.   Now, where the hell was I when this was being discussed, I do not remember anyone mentioning this particular quirk and all I remember is then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Democrat-California, telling us, “We have to pass the bill to see what’s in it!”  Boy was I among the dumbbells that thought Obamacare might be the answer to a very serious problem!  Now, from everything I hear, the healthcare act is going to destroy America, as we know it, the illegal aliens swamping the medical facilities now are going to continue doing the same thing while American citizens suffer, what has the world come to?  

Something else of which, I am appalled is the fact that an average family of three will have to fill out a 15-page online form which the Internal Revenue Service will then have to investigate.  They need to investigate as to whether or not you and your family members are who you say they are and they will also have to determine if you are applying for the correct insurance plan.  If you apply for the wrong one, you are going to have to pay a fine for each family member and will continue doing so until you have made the appropriate changes.   My friends, next year, when the changes to the country take place January 01, 2014, the country is going to go into an economic tailspin as people begin scrabbling around trying to find the right insurance plan to cover them and theirs.  I predict from this moment forward that a great number of people are going to commit suicide, leave the country, or invade the black market that is already springing up in various parts of the country.  Our country is in a crisis now and it is only going to get worse, someone has to tell the President of the United States, I am sure that if he knew any of this, that he would do something to correct the problem immediately.  I urge all of the readership to please contact their congressional representatives as something must be done and soon!

The problem is there are still going to be large numbers of American citizens in need of healthcare and that if someone does not do something to help them, and there is going to be a large segment of the population still without insurance!  Therefore, what is the present administration solved when it forced this monstrosity upon us other than to make life more difficult for those of us who provide jobs to those without them?  At some point, a resistance movement is going to blossom and do not get me wrong, I am not saying that I am going to start one but there is going to be ramifications over this mass transformation of our nation.   Yes, I was wavering last year prior to the election, hoping against hope that someone would step up and somehow the Affordable Care Act would be thrown out and we would be saved.   Now, there is no hope, we are ruled by people who see the world in the shades in which, they wish to see it, not as it is, and that spells disaster for all of us.
Our world is changing before our eyes and while I have always done my best to be true to my liberal instincts there is something in this mass takeover of America’s institutions through coercion, through fear, through threats, once authoritarianism begins to grow, it never stops unless brave people stand up and put a stop to it!   I am beginning to listen to some of my more conservative fellow bloggers, am listening to the radio shows they listen to like Mark Levin, a constitutional scholar who tells it like it is.   People, we must save the nation before it collapses but now, I see no way in which, we can do it if we do not see some strong conservatives on next year’s ballots but I bet someone will figure a way in which to co-opt the election and the deed is done. 

Well, today, we are going to make an old favorite of mine, something I absolutely NEVER see on any menu anymore, coffee shop or otherwise and that is, where we are headed today: down the historic avenue to the days of our ancestors!  We are going to make Cacciatore Sauce, one of the classic Italian tomato sauces, ahem, my heritage as you know, and it is a good one that once adorned menus everywhere.   So, without any more discussion, let us get started so we can begin figuring out how we are going to overturn Obamacare and thereby save the nation!

(#0341) CHICKEN CACCIATORE SAUCE

 

One of the basic sauces of sauces, Chicken Cacciatore Sauce is an important addition to any chef’s catalog of sauces, especially if one works either in an ethnic restaurant or in places specializing in world cuisines.  Cacciatore may not see the light of day much anymore but like all historic things, occasionally they do and when they do, one needs to have the correct sauce with which to make it.  This one is precisely that—the perfect sauce!

Yield:  about 1.75 quarts / Mis-en-place: 1.5 hours:

Measure

1
Tablespoon
Olive oil
 
.125
Cup

1

2
Cups

2
Cups
Julienned yellow bell peppers

Whole oregano

Tablespoon
Whole marjoram
 
1.5
Teaspoons
Whole sweet basil
 
1.5
Teaspoons
Kosher salt
 
.5
Teaspoon
Whole rosemary
 
1.25
Cups
Tomato puree
 
1.25
Cups
Tomato sauce
 
1
Cup
Chicken stock
 
.75
Cup
Catsup
 
2
Each
Bay leaves
 
2
Cups
Sliced mushrooms and pieces
 
1
Cup
Sliced black olives
 


 

Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work!  (Bell pepper preparation: always stem, de-seed, and de-rib bell peppers and then, if necessary, slice off any of the whitish inner parts with a sharp knife and discard them.  Note, if you need to remove any curly ends once you break the bell into segments, do so.  Finally, using a sharp French or Chinese knife, julienne each section—by cutting each one into thin, lengthwise strips—and then set aside).
2.     Place a large sautoir or rondeau atop medium heat and add the olive oil.  When sizzling, add the garlic and shallots, sautéing them until golden-brown and aromatic.  Then, add the onions, bells, and the seasonings and sauté over medium heat until the veggies are tender and the air fragrant with the mélange of vegetables, herbs, and spices. 
3.     Pour the chicken stock and the tomato products into the bells and bring to a boil.  Once there, add the catsup, bay leaves, mushrooms, and black olives.  Continue cooking the sauce until medium-thick through reduction over medium-low flame, then pull from the stove and keep warm for immediate use or pour into a shallow pan placed atop a cooling rack and reduce heat to 45°F or less.
4.     Once there, transfer the pan into the refrigerator and when cold enough to pour into a sanitized airtight container, do so.  Label, date, and keep refrigerated when not in use and when portions removed become leftover, place them into their own container taking care to label and date it, too.  Use leftover amounts first and NEVER return used amounts to the parent batch. 
5.     To use with a dish like Chicken Cacciatore, brown the chicken portions and then place them into a baking dish.  Cover with sauce, cover with a lid, and bake inside a preheated 375°F oven until the chicken reaches the temperature of 165°F or higher.  Then, if necessary, thicken the sauce with some tomato paste or with cornstarch slurry to the desired thickness.
Chicken Cacciatore is one of those old, standard dishes found in virtually every coffee shop, hotel dining room, and restaurant buffet whereas now, one seldom sees it.  However, if one has an “Italian Night,” it is an integral component so you need to have an excellent sauce on hand to make it and here you are!

THE YELLOW SHARK

          I would like to make a prediction: next year, when all of this kicks in, there is going to be turmoil in the streets, the nation is going to take to the streets in ways not seen since the Great Depression.  In the spirit of Mahatmas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and a whole host of other great men of honor, we must make the leaders in Washington, D.C. understand that what they are doing to the nation is going to push it ever further down the road of economic ruin rather than pulling it back and saving it.  Liberalism is something for which, I never thought I would question and had Hillary Clinton won the nomination in 2008 and won the election, I doubt we would be where we are now.  The Clintons are survivors, they are not losers and they never would have put us where we are now.  I do know that Hillary did attempt to pass Hillary Care but that was a long time ago, in the early 1990’s and look what happened to her plan and to her.  If only the President would understand that what he is doing is going to put greater stress upon the economy rather than save it, he might be able to fix his plan and we would survive all of this.  We can only hope!       

 

CIVILIZATION PHASE 3

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower and why not spend some money and purchase an album by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise!  Amazon.com is one of the greatest—if not the ultimate greatest!—online department stores in which, one can find almost everything on the planet.  We love them and they love us and we want all of you to visit them daily, take advantage of their deals on everything from kitchen equipment to cookbooks, CDs, DVDs, and everything else a person could want.  Everything you buy from them puts money into our pockets, which allows us to keep this fine blog up-and-running 24/7/365!  God bless America and God bless Amazon.com!

PEACE!
