Chicken--EBTB (everthing but the breast)
CHICKEN – you just can’t have too many recipes on how to serve “The Bird.”  
Chicken is quick and easy to prepare…it’s loved by young and old… men, women and children…and it’s less expensive as far as main course proteins are concerned. 
I have presented programs on how to use a roasted chicken, chicken breasts and whole chickens. 
But I haven’t done a program on the other parts of The Bird…the thighs, the legs and the wings. 
Stores always have sales on chicken parts so you can save more money with these dishes. 
I'll prepare for you to taste 
“TEA-SMOKED” WINGS with Homemade PLUM SAUCE;  
ROASTED THIGHS with MARSALA & MUSHROOM SAUCE served with ROOT VEGETABLE HASH 
and the delicious BRAISED LEGS “COQ  au VIN”

Fall Harvest of Flavors
So many varieties of produce available in the fall; apples, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, green beans, kale, tomatoes, cabbage, beets, broccoli and the list goes on and on.  When you buy produce fresh and in-season it is generally less expensive and more nutritious. When food is not in season locally, it’s either grown in a hothouse or shipped in from other parts of the world, and both affect the taste. Compare a dark red, vine-ripened tomato still warm from the summer sun with a winter hothouse tomato that's barely red, somewhat mealy, and lacking in flavor. You know what I’m talking about! So tonight I am going to create a variety of recipes using fresh local produce to bring you a menu that will explode with flavor and color. You’ll sample…
Braised Pork with Apples, Mushrooms, and Calvados
Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes with
Caramelized Shallots,
Green Beans with Wild Mushrooms and
Pear & Apple Tart Tatin

Classic Italian pasta dishes
One of the most popular ethnic cooking styles in America is Italian. Italy is actually a bastion of regional cooking styles loosely held together by a flag. Even though each region has its own specialties there are some techniques which will enable an individual cook from anywhere to cook like a native. I’ll pass on some of these techniques as well as serve you some fabulous pasta dishes from around Italy such as…
Pasta au Pesto with Cream, Green Beans
& Potatoes,
Spaghetti alla Puttanesca
(pasta with tomatoes, capers & anchovies)
Pasta Aglio e Olio
(Pasta with garlic, oil & aromatic herbs)
Fettucine alla Carbonara

Tomato Time
Tomatoes are a fruit and part of the nightshade family (like potatoes and eggplants), but they are served and prepared as a vegetable.They come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes: large red beefsteaks are slightly irregular; globes are red, medium-size and round; plum tomatoes are egg-shaped and red or yellow (grape tomatoes are baby plums); cherry tomatoes are small and round, etc. And lets not forget the heirlooms! Native to South America, and brought to Europe by Spanish explorers, the tomato took some time to be accepted because tomatoes were thought to be poisonous, like other members of the nightshade family. It was not until the 1900s that tomatoes started to gain popularity in the US.
Tomatoes are versatile for cooking; they can be baked, stuffed, boiled, grilled, stewed and more. Today we are going to use tomatoes in a variety of recipes using a variety of techniques to give you a host of new recipes to try.
You'll sample...
Fresh Tomato Bruschetta
Fall Tomato Soup with Basil and Parmesan Crisps
Spanish Beef Stew with Tomatoes & Garlic
served with Polenta and Sauteed Grape Tomatoes

Cooking with Beer

When people think of cooking with alcohol, it’s usually wine we head to immediately but beer is as versatile, if not more versatile, than wine. Beer can add complexity and depth to your dishes. In Europe, beer has been used as an integral ingredient for centuries but in America, it’s only been the past few years that beer’s been viewed as an artisan product the way wine is. Beer is typically lower in alcohol and lighter in flavor, and it has spices that can really complement food.
Tonight I’ll show you how to use beer in recipes and how to choose the perfect beer for your dish. You’ll sample…
Orange & Ale Vinaigrette Over Arugala, radicchio, oranges & pecans
Beer-braised Turkey Tacos
Shamelessly Drunken Spicy Shrimp
With Jamaican Coconut-scented Rice
Chocolate-Mint Beer Float

Bourbon, Bacon & Brown Sugar
“These are a few of my favorite things!"
And they are a flavor match made in heaven.  
Bacon draws out the smoky, woodsy flavor of the Bourbon and the Brown Sugar is a subtle sweetness that compliments both.

MIXED GREENS with RASPBERRY & BOURBON VINAIGRETTE with SPICED PECANS;
BACON MUFFINS with BACON JAM;
BACON-WRAPPED PORK TENDERLOIN with WHISKEY BOURBON GLAZE

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.-style Knock-off recipes
Forrest Gump is a 1986 novel by Winston Groom. The title character retells adventures ranging from shrimp boating and ping pong championships, to thinking about his childhood love, as he bumbles his way through American history, with everything from the Vietnam War to college football becoming part of the story. Released as a movie in 1994 starring Tom Hanks.

“Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There’s shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That, that’s about it.” – Bubba

Ramen
Ramen is certainly having a “moment” right now, enjoying a popularity that’s reserved for only the trendiest foods.
