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

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

Everyday Gourmet
I love food—no doubt about that! But, as life sometimes gets hectic, I don’t always I have the time to create delicious meals for my family and I hate having to resort to nutritionally void pre-made convenience products or fast food. My solution…try to build a few days’ worth of menus around 1 basic item. So today we’re going to take the humble potato, fresh from the summer garden, cook them on day one and then create 3 fabulous meals. You’ll sample…
Menu #1: Herbed Sirloin with Brandied Mushrooms & Twice Baked Potatoes
Menu #2: Homemade Ricotta Gnocchi with Peas & Parmesan 
Menu #3: Black bean & Chorizo-stuffed Potato skins with Shaved Carrot & Jicama Salad
