854th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

 Former Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton

Bakersfield, CA, 03-24-2013 Su:  We are finally at the final day of our workweek and I am glad as should you be because it means tomorrow, I am home and Chef Lilah Paulikovich is here!  I hope that we have had some fun this week as we have discussed the important situations but one thing I neglected to mention earlier this week is the amazing turnaround by retired Secretary of State and former First Lady, Hillary Clinton.  If I recall things correctly, the Clintons stood behind the Defense of Marriage Act—DOMA, if you will—which he shepherded through the legislative process sometime in the 1990’s.  The Clintons came out and stood squarely behind the definition of marriage being “one man, one woman”—there was no other definition.  Now, however, Mrs. Clinton said on Monday that she has now “evolved” like all the rest into seeing that marriage is the new Civil Rights battleground and that she is squarely behind Gays marrying one another and believes that it is important to guarantee the rights of marriage to everyone!   Looks to me like the former secretary is throwing her hat into the 2016 presidential race!
Actress Susan Sarandon
I saw a good movie earlier this week, “Snitch,” starring among others Susan Sarandon who played a hard-nosed federal prosecutor who was going to sentence Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson’s son for possessing a big bag of Ecstasy, somebody set the kid up, his friend, in order to beat his OWN rap.  The movie is quite powerful and points out the insanity of the War on Drugs that still rages on ensnaring a great many people while doing little to nothing to stop the flow across the southern borders of the States.  However, that is another story for another time but the gist of what I am looking at is one as if that Ms. Sarandon said when her campaign workers (she was running for a congressional seat) showed her she was down in the polls: “I guess I should attend a Gay wedding.”
Actor Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson
Now, Ms. Sarandon is a big time liberal, which made the comment laughable but sad as it pointed out how all of these candidates for various offices are undergoing epiphanies and now are embracing Gays across the nation.  The homosexual agenda is now one that every single politician now has to go out and hang out with because not to do so is to risk being called a hater.  People who at one time were resolutely against same sex marriage now can only get onto the bandwagon as quickly as possible.  It is almost disgusting to me because it shows the hypocrisy that is flooding this nation as first this person and that undergoes enlightenment and begins showing up at Gay functions no matter where they are or whatever they are doing.  I expect to see a Republican like Rick Santorum going to the infamous Gay Day Parade in San Francisco, California so he can get some points for when he runs again in three years.  All of this Gay-hugging makes me want to puke but as mentioned over the course of our week together, I have few issues with how people want to live—I just wish everyone wasn’t a big phony!
Anyhow, we now know that Mrs. Clinton is determined to get what should have been hers in 2016 but what was stolen out of her hands by the upstart politician with little to no experience from Illinois, Barack Obama, and our current President.   I for one thought that Mrs. Clinton would win the nomination hands-down but then as went on, she only did as well as she did due to the meddling of Rush Limbaugh and his “Operation Chaos.”  I imagine many people out there—especially the low information voters—have little to no recall what exactly what Operation Chaos was all about, right?  Well, Mr. Limbaugh encouraged his listeners to cross party lines, register as Democrats if need be and vote for Mrs. Clinton when it was clear that Mr. Obama was easily beating her.   I think just the fact that she was stunned sort of like Josef Stalin during the early months of Operation Barbarossa—the June 1941 German invasion of the USSR—made her easy meat.  She never saw it coming and when she saw first one loyal supporter after another go with her opponent, it knocked her off her feet and she never truly recovered.  Had not Mr. Limbaugh’s listeners kept her in the thick of the action, she would have exited much earlier than she did.
Soviet Dictator Josef Stalin
Therefore, it is important to note the impact of Gay marriage, how quickly it has overturned our culture and our moral foundations, and the threat it poses to the future of the nation due to the loss of morality.  It also threatens our children through the ongoing recruitment of the young who have absolutely little to no idea what homosexuality is all about and that my friends, is something that none of us should and can overlook.  I think if we need to avoid politicians who are so blatant about joining the cause and go with those who speak from their hearts.  As I mentioned the previous days, my commitment to the Democratic Party has to do with the importance of saving the planet and not in endorsing how people want to live.  Well, enough of that, let’s do our recipe for today and call it a week, shall we?

(#0260) SAUCE PICQUANTE

 

In modern times, many chefs use pre-fabricated products due to the expense of making things from scratch or labor costs; unfortunately, when everyone in one’s restaurant community is doing the same thing, food tastes the same across a wide swath of a locale thereby making foods taste not only boring but also formulaic.  It is important that every chef finds ways to make their products from scratch—as if we used to do in the “old days,” something we celebrate here on a daily basis.   Figure out how to do things like the past masters and you will become the number one chef of your area!

Yield:  1.25 quarts / Mis-en-place: 20 minutes:
 

 

Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
1
Quart
Sauce Brune (Recipe #253)
See below
.5
Cup
Minced gherkin pickles
 
.5
Cup
Capers with juice
 
2
Teaspoons
Minced fresh parsley flakes
Rinsed and dried

 

Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work!  Have the big job done and a quart of Sauce Brune on the stove in a heavy-duty saucepot.   To it, add the gherkins and capers and after bringing to and keeping at a high simmer for 1-2 minutes; drop heat to a bare minimum, check and readjust seasonings as necessary, and then pour into a container and keep warm on your steam table. 
2.     Pour the sauce into a shallow pan if you intend to use it later rather than NOW.  Place it atop a cooling rack and when at or below 45°F, transfer the pan to the refrigerator.  Prior to putting there, spray a sheet of wax paper thoroughly with Crisco Pan Release or some such other food release spray and then press it—sprayed-side-DOWN atop the sauce—then refrigerate it.  The purpose of this step is to prevent the unsightly formation of a skin atop the sauce, which is lost when you remove the paper.  However, it is NOT professional to permit the formation of a skin atop a soup or a sauce so NEVER overlook this very important step.

3.     When your sauce is cold, transfer it into a sanitized container equipped with a tight-fitting lid.  Label, date, and keep refrigerated when not in use.   Always reheat amounts intended for use to 165°F or higher and NEVER return leftover amounts to the parent batch as this increases the possibility of foodborne illness. 

4.     The shelf life of Sauce Picquante is about SEVEN days; therefore, use it before that time or risk losing it—always checks its flavor prior to usage.   The purpose of Sauce Picquante is for meats such as beef, pork, veal, and also poultry and it is usable either by itself or as a basis for still more sauces such as Brown Lemon Sauce. 

(#0253) SAUCE BRUNE

 
Making sauces from scratch is one of the “lost arts” of chefs of old as nowadays, very few do things in the way in which, God intended chefs to make them.  I recall bubbling stockpots going around the clock on the backburners and it was there that I saw things being made in the correct way.  Yes, it took a great deal of time but the end product was something no dry mix could ever replicate, no matter how well the foodservice companies made the bases.  This is how one makes the best brown sauce in the world and when you have the opportunity to do it, you are going to agree. 

Yield:  one quart / Mis-en-place: 12-16 hours:
 

 

Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
2
Quarts 
Superior Veal stock
 
.25
Cup
Reserved beef drippings
 
3/8
Cup
All-purpose flour
 
2
Teaspoons
Kosher salt
 
1
Teaspoon
White pepper
 
1
Each
Bay leaf
 

 

Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work! Make stock from beef or veal bones.  Roast the bones in a 375°F standard oven or a 325°F convection oven—fan “on”—for at least two hours; be sure to add some vegetable oil and some vegetable scraps such as yellow onions, celery, leeks, and carrots.  Turn the bones over while they cook, taking great care to scrape up the caramelized deposits on the pan’s bottom.  When the bones are dark, pour off and strain the oil and reserve it; place the pot over a medium flame and cover with water.  Bring to a boil, keep there for 4-5 minutes, and then reduce the flame to very low and simmer the bones for an hour or so.  If you start with 5# of bones, cover them with a gallon of cold water and reduce it by half.
2.     Once you create the stock, pour it through cheesecloth-lined fine-meshed sieve into a sanitized bowl.  Refrigerate overnight (the reserved oil, too) and the next day, scrape off the fat cap on the surface of the stock.  Combine this with the reserved oil and heat it up: when it is liquid, pour it through a strainer and remove the impurities—discard them.  Save this oil in a clean jar in your freezer after you have taken out the required .25-cup for the roux.

3.     Combine the oil with the flour in a small saucepot and cook over a very low flame until its dark brown, stirring frequently.  Meanwhile, place two quarts of the beef or veal stock in a large saucepot and reduce by half over a medium flame.  Add the bay leaf and the seasonings to it while you do this. 

4.     When you have ONE quart of liquid, whisk the liquid into the roux pot; raise the temperature so that it is boiling and whisk furiously as you combine the mixture.  Allow it to boil for 1-2 minutes and then reduce the heat and allow it to simmer over a very low flame for 4-5 minutes.  Check and readjust the seasonings as necessary.  Use this as your basic Brown Sauce or Sauce Brune.

Professional chefs build many other sauces from this basic brown sauce.  Always be sure to create a DARK roux for brown sauces and either a white or a blonde roux for lighter sauces.  You can keep this in the refrigerator or in your freezer for 1-2 weeks and then must discard it.

Every chef needs to know how to make the appropriate brown sauces whether they use them daily or for limited usage.

FRANK ZAPPA PLAYS THE MUSIC OF FRANK ZAPPA

          I realize that not everyone has the time or the opportunity to make mother sauces and their offspring as easily as I do because let’s face it: time is valuable and so is labor.  Now, with the oncoming nightmares posed by the Affordable Care Act, we have far more problems to worry about and what with the fulltime workweek now being 30 hours instead of 40 means that most of one’s employees will have to work 29 hours or less so they do not qualify for employer-provided healthcare plans.  As mentioned by others, and me it is sad to see that is where the United States has come and if something is not done and soon to stop it, we are going to lose our nation forever.  If anything, I do not care if Gays marry one another or not because like the War on Drugs, I believe it is all smoke and mirrors and nothing more than people making money on someone else’s pain.  What with the growth of privatized prisons, social and penal services, it appears to me like many people—besides drug dealers!—make money on people entering the system.   Yes, I know, I’m a cynic but let’s face it: the country is not the country as it was founded by the Founders!  I will see you all in six months, have a great time and God bless you!            

 
HAVE I OFFENDED SOMEONE

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!
