“Mis-en-Place Index, Part XXXIII: Look who’s back: Chef JT and today, we begin a Weeklong Seminar on Pantry Sauces of all Sizes—today, it’s Tartar Sauce I!” by Chef James “JT” Tobiason


---------------------------------

Today’s album is Frank Zappa’s twenty-eighth solo album, “Jazz from Hell,”  which came out in 1986 as have several of the preceding days’ offerings and once again, Mr. Zappa, always restless musically, comes up with another winner!  Mr. Zappa always enjoyed coming up with new and unusual musical scores and accomplished a great deal over the course of his life.  The man could play many different styles of music as well as create a great deal more on his own.  We recommend that you take the convenient link posted above, go to Amazon.com, and buy it NOW—you’ll be glad you did!

MIS-EN-PLACE INDEX, PART XXXIII

834th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

 

Bakersfield, CA, 03-04-2013 M: Hello, friends, today, I have drawn the Mis-en-Place Index card out of Chef Stinkbug’s hat and lo and behold, it is not something I have ever had the opportunity to do here at the blog!  Welcome to the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, the place where we make the mysterious commonplace, the eclectic, the ordinary, and the place where we celebrate the firing of the drunken, closet liberal, ignoramus of a radio talk show host, Ralph Emerson Bailey, Jr.  Up here in Visalia, just up the road from Bakersfield, we listen to AM 1560 Radio, too, and unfortunately, for the past 8-9 years, the management forced us—against our will—to listen to this imbecile who calls himself an “educated man.” Man, if that is what the educational system is cranking out nowadays, we are in a horrible state indeed and all I can say is that we must lay it at the feet of the Obama Administration as well as the disgusting government even farther up the road in Sacramento, California. 
The Terminated Ralph Bailey, worst radio talk show host in the world...goodbye and good riddance!
We are living the liberal dream of big government, my friends, we are in the era of Big Brother, and their intrusions into our lives overwhelm us!  I am telling you, if we do not do something and do it soon, you are watching the radio tower of the USS America slipping silently beneath the waves, torpedoed by the Democrats destroying it from within and without.  Never have I seen such a lengthy period of fear mongering by both the press and the government as it tries to impress upon the low information voters the need not to cut back on spending.  You and I could never get away with what the government is getting away with as if we did, if we printed the worthless money that it does on a daily basis, the government would lock us up in prison.   How can we deal with what our leaders are  doing to us, I mean, Obamacare was NOT supposed to add a single cent to the budget (yeah, like we have one of those!) and yet, we find out that it is going to add more to it than what we make in ONE year.  Most of the low information voters have no idea what the Gross National Product or GPA is, it is like talking to someone from the Moon!   For the first time in the history of the nation, debit is going to be so overwhelming that our children will be worse off than their parents will, which goes against the meaning and the promise of America. 
We are now required to inform the readers of our political leanings so they know up front from whence we come; I am a member of the Constitution Party of the United States, yes, not a mainstream party but a good one nonetheless.  Like the previous author admitted, I, too, must hold my nose and gag when I vote for the RINO candidates as voting for them is better than the voting for the other side.  It is difficult but I do believe that with the ongoing destruction of the Republican Party by the likes of Barack Obama and his minions—including the press—there is no hope that Mr. Boehner or his cohorts are going to be able to withstand this ongoing mauling.  The Democrats act as though they are still fighting to win the election when they have been in power for the past four years and have another four to go!  I do not see George W. Bush skulking around the shadows nor do I hear for anyone calling him to come back.  Let’s face it; had Mr. Bush been a Democrat, they would have loved the guy because he spent money like a drunken sailor trolling the docks of a red light district.   He, too, is another RINO as is his brother Jeb, Colin Powell, and a whole host of other drones who bear strong resemblance to their opponents.  It is time for a THIRD PARTY to enter the fray and I do hope that the Libertarians and the Constitutionalists join forces and beat back the forces of darkness!
What the President is currently doing is against the Constitution and yet, the Republicans are afraid to challenge the man.  Numerous courts have knocked down this and that tenet of the laws he passes through executive orders and yet, no one calls him on it or attempts to stop him.  Never before, has division between the people been so extreme and I suspect but hope against it that another civil war is brewing.  We must somehow regain some semblance of control over the nation because when you have a chief executive who has no qualms about opening the doors to the cells holding criminal illegal aliens, then he has no qualms about running for a third term—who’s going to stop him?  All he has to do is to say he has the ability by issuing an executive order, to hell with the Congress, he can do whatever the hell he wants to do!

Well, today, we are going to spend a week making simple sauces, the sorts of things necessary with which to make our foods taste better. I realize that others have trodden this road before me but what the heck, it’s fun, it’s simple, and it’s important.  It is the sauces that give our foods their uniqueness, their beauty, and their popularity as anyone can buy a gallon of premade tartar sauce from their local Smart and Final store or from their handy restaurant purveyor.  However, when one makes his or her sauces from scratch, one attains notoriety that others don’t have because their foods are exciting while the competition’s taste like “New York City,” you know that salsa commercial for Pace Piquante Salsa, it’s a good one if you haven’t seen it.  I recommend that you always make your own sauces as for one thing, it gives you the opportunity to use up stuff you have on hand and for which, maybe nothing else requires them.  The more one can use up their products, the better one’s food cost and believe me, even at home, one must think like a professional!  Nowadays, with prices on everything skyrocketing, one has to squeeze every last ounce of use out of every penny!  Here we go, let’s get started:

(#0397) TARTAR SAUCE #1

 

I enjoy a good tartar sauce and that means, most store-bought offerings just do not measure up when compared with fresh, homemade sauces.  This one is a simple, quick, and quite enjoyable selection, one that fills almost every need and allows the chef to use up common, on-hand ingredients one needs to use.  Keep the recipe handy, you are going to use it abundantly, I guarantee it!

Yield:  about two cups / Mis-en-place: 15-20 minutes:
 

 

Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
1.25
Cups
Best Foods mayonnaise
 
.25
Cup
Chopped onions, blanched
 
.25
Cup
Dill relish
 
1
Splash
Lemon juice
 
.75-1
Teaspoon
Kosher salt
 
.125
Teaspoon
White pepper
 
1
Tablespoon
Freshly minced parsley flakes
 

 

Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work!  Hook up your Kitchen Aid mixer and outfit it with the PADDLE attachment. 
2.     Add the mayonnaise, onions, dill relish, lemon juice, and the seasonings and rotate the whip around the bowl on low speed.  Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl and the paddle, and then begin rotating the paddle once more around the bowl for about 30 seconds.
3.     Then, transfer the sauce into a sanitized airtight container equipped with a tight-fitting lid.  Label, date, refrigerate and keep there for a shelf life of about 6-8 days.  Note, always remove the amount you plan to use at the time of service; however, if any remains from the removed amount, never return it to the parent batch as this can cause foodborne illness.  It is best to place the returned amount into a brand-new container of its own and to use it first before using the main batch.  Always protect the lives of your guests and your family.  In addition to that, if you remove several measures and a crust begins forming on the inside of the jar, transfer the remaining amount into a new container and send the old jar to the dishwasher.
Like it or not, most people love tartar sauce with their fish, especially certain types like whitefish, fish-and-chips, even shellfish so always have some on hand to meet their needs.  Yes, most chefs go into a tizzy when they prepare a delicious sauce or topping for their halibut, salmon, or swordfish and then when someone requests tartar sauce, they go bonkers.  Do not lose it, give them what they want and you are going to be the best!

THE OLD MASTERS, BOX II

          I am excited that we presently are advertising albums by the Mothers of Invention and Frank Zappa, believe it or not, I saw the Mothers live on stage back in the 1970’s and it is one of the most memorable shows I have ever seen.  Noted for their vulgarity as much as their musical abilities, the Mothers and Frank were one of the best shows I ever saw in my life!  Mr. Zappa was one of the most talented individuals ever to have graced a stage in his life and it is truly sad that he lost his life due to an easily preventable disease, you know, prostate cancer.  The men out there who refuse to let their doctors check them are simply being silly, it is an easily performed test, and it does not even require the “finger” anymore as much as it does a blood test.  I urge all of my employees and my readers, too, to go to your doctor, get the test, and save your life!  No one should ever have to die from this disease, it can be fixed if caught in time, I always urge my male employees to go to their doctors, get the test, quit being a prissy metro-sexual, do the right thing, get checked and save your life.  I once had a problem that way, had chronic prostatitis and was worried that maybe I had cancer.  The damned disease lasted for several years and made me so tired that I thought I was dying.  My doctor was able to treat it with several major doses of antibiotics and while prostatitis is not the same as contracting prostate cancer, it is not something one desires to have, let me tell you!

 
JAZZ FROM HELL

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!

Thank you!
