“Mis-en-Place Index, Part XXXV: Chef JT reworks Yesterday’s French Vinegar and Oil Dressing by transforming it into Sauce Ravigote—even Spicier!” by Chef James “JT” Tobiason


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

Today’s album is Frank Zappa’s thirtieth solo album, “Guitar,” which came out in 1988 and gave Mr. Zappa the opportunity to demonstrate his unique prowess on the guitar!  Due to the musical topics and lyrical stances Mr. Zappa took over the course of his life, it is a shame he did not get more respect for his musical abilities but instead remained in an odd area within music.  However, we highly recommend all of his work and believe that you should pick up this exceptional album—you are going to love it! Go to Amazon.com NOW and buy it!

836th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

President Richard M. Nixon
 

Bakersfield, CA, 03-06-2013 W: Here we are, the day before Hump Day and that is good; we have but four days to go after this day concludes.  Did you hear about the dissension regarding Bob Woodward, you know, Bob Woodward of the Woodward and Bernstein fame for having brought down the “evil” Richard Nixon?  Last week, he called what the President was doing regarding the Sequester as “madness.”  He said that it was “maddening” that the President would use budget cuts as an excuse to release thousands of criminal illegal aliens onto the streets of America, that it was “madness” to keep a carrier in port instead of reinforcing the fleet in the Persian Gulf, that all of this was “mad.”  Then, Mr. Woodward released a statement informing that a ranking member of the White House said, “Mr. Woodward would regret saying what he said” about the President and Mr. Woodward said, “he could deal with it.”    
Bob Woodward, noted author...
Now, this is an unusual thing when a top Democrat reporter who usually reinforces what the party says to come out and say in so many words that what Mr. Obama was doing was similar to what Mr. Nixon had done back in the 1970’s.  For a top liberal reporter to compare the first Black American president’s actions with those of someone who every good liberal reviles is almost putting the noose around one’s neck.  That just does not happen currently of dirty political tricks and politics.  When the reporters begin questioning the actions of a sitting Democrat president, they place themselves in a very dangerous position because the libs have no problem meting out payback.  However, it is “madness for President Obama to be the one who engineered the whole sequesters process and then tries to deflect it onto the Republicans to destroy them.  He does everything to chuff it off onto John Boehner and the Republicans in the hopes of destroying them as a working party, which is fine with me—it would give us the chance to establish the Constitution Party as the opposing force, something we need now more than ever.  If we do not get back to following the Constitution and what it means to the people of this country and do it soon, the transformation promised by the President in 2008 is going to win.  We must stop this nightmare from happening at all costs lest we lose the nation to discord, violence, anger, and hatred as class warfare and the politics of division win the day.  This reminds me so much of a book by Stephen King I read years ago, Needful Things in which an agent of the Devil (I am not calling Mr. Obama the devil, please!) came to this small New England town and played its residents off against one another.  It is one of his best books!
President Barack Hussein Obama
The idea was that this very charming individual arrived in the town and he opened a curio shop in which people found something dear to their hearts, something for which they were willing to do anything to obtain.   It was interesting as each thing a person most dearly wanted, hidden away in their inner souls, whether it was a baseball card or a knickknack, the proprietor of the store was able to make a “deal.”   The deal involved the playing of a practical joke on another of the town’s citizenry until after a period of time, all HELL was breaking lose as one deal set off the next and so on and so forth.  Soon, people were killing one another and as the madness reined, the store’s owner grew powerful, bigger than life, and by the end of the book, you realized that he was either Satan or one of his top minions. 
President Bill Clinton
Now, do not mistake what I am saying: I am not calling the President the “devil”—as mentioned—but the allegory to this is that he gives this group this and another one that.  After awhile, he has everyone lining up against one another while he sits above it acting as though he is an outsider and not the root cause of what is going on!  The President puts up all of these straw people, you know, “this one is doing that and the other is doing this, and they are doing it all to you!”  He seldom names anyone directly only saying that it’s the “wealthy” or the Republicans or this group or that while playing everyone off against one another—this is not how one governs a nation he or she professes to love.  Look up the book, buy it, read it, it is an amazing look at something from an entirely new angle, which to me always enlightens.  We need to put a stop to this and pull the country back to what it was, you did not see anything like this when Bill Clinton was in office.   Granted, President Clinton was a big lib who lacked morals and his wife tried to push Hillary Care through the House and Senate (and went down in flames) but never did he do anything like what currently we are undergoing—wake up!
I know I will hear a bunch of comments blasting me for being a smuck and all but, I remind all of you that when the rotation comes around, you are going to have four Democrats in a row: Bea O’Malley, Fritz Schlependrecht, Cheryl La Tigre, and Itzi Nakamura.  It’s not as if we are all conservative thinkers here at the AICP-END.  The fact is, we do cover a wide variety of topics for a culinary foodservice site, which puts us into a category all our own as restaurant and culinary workers typically discuss more politics than do employees in any other line of work.  Now, that said, please buy some of the great albums we constantly recommend but first, here’s our recipe, which, you will note, the great French chefs based upon yesterday’s selection:

(#0403) SAUCE RAVIGOTE

 

Being a trained chef, I had the opportunity as a young line cook to work with many of the older chefs of the area when I first entered a professional kitchen.  Learning to make the various sauces was a time-consuming aspect of my apprenticeship and this sauce is but one learned over the course of my time spent learning beneath the masters.  This sauce is both flavorful and unique in that it extends maximum flavor to whatever item is married to it, exceptional flavor to say the least. 
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
 
1-1/3
Tablespoons
Chopped capers with juice
 
1-1/3
Tablespoons
Chopped shallots
 
1-1/3
Tablespoons
Fines herbs
 

 

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.  
Sauce Ravigote is a spicier version of the French Vinegar and Oil Dressing, primarily used to dress fish and poultry dishes.  It is one that is useful in every chef’s personal recipe book as even if used once or twice a year, it will make whatever you add it to, extra special.  Keep it on hand; you are going to use it!
