“Mis-en-Place Index, Part XXXIV: While it may be Boring for Some, for Most, it is Not: French Vinegar and Oil Dressing #1—Zesty Foundation for many other Sauces!” by Chef James “JT” Tobiason


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

Today’s album is Frank Zappa’s twenty-ninth solo album, “London Symphony Orchestra, Volume II,” which came out in 1987 and once again, Mr. Zappa, delivers another unique musical offering!  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 XXXIV

 



Mis-en-Place Index, Part XXXIV: While it may be Boring for Some, for Most, it is Not: French Vinegar and Oil Dressing #1—Zesty Foundation for many other Sauces!” by Chef James “JT” Tobiason



835th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

 

Bakersfield, CA, 03-05-2013 T: Greetings once more my friends, we find ourselves again at a troubling time in the nation’s history when it seems to me that the vicious cycle of hardball politics continues unabated.  I recall living in California in 1978 when Proposition 13 was close to passing and how the liberals of the state were running around in the streets crying the “sky is falling, the sky is falling!”  They were trying to tell the electorate, who in those days were indeed educated, that if the proposition passed, thereby lowering property taxes for all, it will destroy our state and we will all be lost.   Well, the proposition passed, property taxes went down for Democrats and Republicans alike and suddenly, the state found itself in the midst of an economic boom and everyone was working!  Wages were increasing, industries sprouted up, people were working around the clock, and money was great, in fact, over the course of the next twelve years, wages went up without abating!
Governor Gray Davis, ill-fated California Governor
Sadly, it did not last as sometime during the 1990’s, the liberals began taking control of the state through enlisting illegal aliens in the voter rolls to finding ways to fudge at the voting booth.  After Pete Wilson left, granted a subpar governor, we got the horrible ignoramus, the Democrat Gray Davis who drove the state into a financial black hole that was so severe, the people recalled him and put the big fat loser (and RINO, for that matter) Arnold Swartzenegger into his place.  Suddenly, all of the gains that we made through the powers of initiative went down the drain with the so-called “sucking noise” and disappeared literally forever.   All of the mismanagement and boondoggles that continue to this day opened the door to a far worse retread, Governor Jerry Brown, a man who is at right at home pushing thuggish, union-based hardball politics 24/7.  Our state is now at the bottom of the barrel, our farmlands are disappearing, the state is overrun with illegal aliens who lo and behold somehow become Democratic voters thanks to lax driver’s license laws, and there is no way in hell, our state is ever going to return to its past glory much less the nation!  Friends, we must begin making plans NOW for November 2014 because if the apathetic voters on the Republican side stay at home, our state is going to disappear and it will become like all the rest of the Democratically controlled strongholds.  It will be like Illinois, like Michigan, like the cities of Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, the state of New Jersey, and all the rest of the liberal bastions around the nation.  Liberal control means loss of jobs, high taxes, lousy schools, loose morality, no jobs, and homeless and mentally ill wandering the streets.  As Santayana said, “those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.”  Food for thought, my friends, food for thought.  
Governor Pete Wilson
What does one have to do to get this message through the heads of the voters?  How do we let the minorities know that in essence, their leaders take them for granted?  When someone like the Vice President Joe Biden tells a group of Black Americans, that “they” (you know, the straw people they always pull up in order to beat them up) “want to put y’all back in chains,” who in the name of God believes that? I want to meet a Black American who honestly believes that “someone” wants to put them back into chains like they are “Django,” you know, Quentin Tarantino’s movie of the same name.  It makes me sick to think that our educational system is so f---ing destroyed that someone in this country at this time in its history could or would ever believe that “someone” out there wants to put them back in chains and make slaves out of them.  Is this what our educational system has come down to, infecting the minds of the students while they sit in class filling their minds and hearts with this garbage?  Please tell me that this is not the America in which, we live, it is too painful to believe!
Vice President Joseph Biden
Anyhow, back to the Blacks and the other minorities, can any of you honestly tell me when the last time a democratic leader did anything for any of you?  Do you have jobs, are your jobs better than everyone else’s, do you have good schools, are your streets safe or do they trot you out of the closet when some poor kid like the Martin boy down in Florida loses his life to a frightened “white Hispanic” dunderhead?  I believe it’s the latter, I do wish Bea O’Malley was around the corporate offices right now, I would love to get her views on this topic, seeing as how she is a Black Democrat.  It might be enlightening to all of us, maybe Stinkbug can arrange it for us, and I will call him tonight.
Auguste Escoffier: Master Chef, 1846-1935, the “King of Chefs and Chef of Kings.”
Today, we make one of the most basic “sauces” of the five major sauce families as viewed by the French chefs of old: vinegar and oil dressing, a common flavoring ingredient not only for salads but for marinating meats.  You know, in the old days, one of the prime reasons the British and the Dutch went around the world colonizing Third World peoples was to bring back spices and herbs to the homeland.  The primary reason for the invention of curry and other flavoring particulars was to cover up the smell and taste of spoiled meats.  People were a great deal stronger in what they could consume without contracting violent bouts of foodborne illness and things like vinegar and oil dressing-soaked beef brisket made it that much more palatable.  Nowadays, however, civilized peoples have grown to a point where they cannot consume rotten meats without harrowing consequences so we now use dressings like this to flavor our lettuces.  Here it is, let’s do it:

(#0402) FRENCH VINEGAR AND OIL DRESSING

 

This is as basic as it gets vinegar and oil dressing, flavorful, zesty, and wonderful indeed.  It is also the base from which we make other French sauces, which means it is an important component of any chef’s pantry. 

Yield:  about two cups / Mis-en-place: 12-16 hours:
 

 

Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
3/8
Cup
Heinz red wine vinegar
 
1.5
Cups
Vegetable oil
 
1-1/3
Tablespoons
Freshly minced parsley flakes
Rinsed and dried
2
Teaspoons
Colman’s dry mustard
 
2
Teaspoons
Minced dry chives
 
2
Teaspoons
Tarragon leaves
 
1
Teaspoon
Sweet basil
 
1
Teaspoon
Kosher salt
 
1
Teaspoon +
Granulated sugar
 
.25
Teaspoon
Fine black pepper
 
1
Each
Bay leaf
 

 

Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work!
2.     Hook up your Kitchen Aid mixer and attach the whip attachment.  Place the spices and herbs in the bottom of the mixing bowl.  Then, on low speed, gradually begin adding the vinegar, taking your time doing it so nothing clumps up.  Do it slowly! 
3.     Then, rotating the whip on medium speed, begin adding the vegetable oil in along the sides of the bowl, taking your time, while whipping the two components together.  Doing it, this way gradually incorporates air into the mixture lightening it and dispersing the flavorings among the sauce.  Continue doing this until you have added all of the vegetable oil then stop.
4.     Transfer the mixture into a sanitized container and leave out overnight at room temperature.  The next day, shake it up and after everything settles, give it a taste test: dip a piece of iceberg lettuce into the dressing and savor the flavor. If it is not where you want it, return it to the mixer, adjust the taste using your own best judgment, but if it is, then place it into a sanitized airtight container equipped with a tight-fitting lid, label, date, and keep at room temperature.

5.     Shelf life: 10-14 days; after that, use it or lose it and begin anew.  

This standard vinegar and oil dressing is for use as a salad dressing, a marinade, or for anything else for which, you deem it worthy.  However, do not use it to flavor stinky meat, let’s leave that in the realm of the past and for our great grandparents and on backward down the darkened hallways of our family histories!  Yes, laughing out loud!

JAZZ FROM HELL

          Friends, please look into things for you, do not take my word or the word of anyone else who writes for the AICP-END.  I do not mean to insult the intelligence of anyone but the modern-day term “low information voters” is a nice way of calling someone a “blooming idiot.”  No, we do not attempt to insult anyone with the exception of that big buffoon, Ralph Emerson Bailey, Jr., the worst radio talk show host in the world, the guy who always talked about “black folks” like he was their main spokesperson.  The important thing is that every single minority voter needs to ask him-or-herself the question: “What has the Democratic leadership done for me?”  The truth is, NOTHING, you do not have jobs and you Blacks out there are going to lose still more jobs thanks to the 12-18 million illegal aliens the President is helping attain citizenship through a backdoor amnesty.  It is a great thing for an employer like myself as I can hire these illegals, pay them half of what I pay an American employee, work as long as I want without paying them overtime and give them no insurance, you know work them 18 hours a day but call them “part-time employees.” I guarantee that that is what is going to happen and you poor American citizens are going to sink even deeper into despair.  This is not what I want or any other Conservative individual wants, we love people, we want them to have all the chances in the world to attain success.  We want the poor to become wealthy, we want you to have opportunities in everything from education to employment but if given the alternative, I will hire illegals for the reasons given above.  It is the law of life, sorry, folks!
