latkes


Tea LeavesOne of our greatest pleasures in life is starting off several days each week with a cup of black tea from India, Ceylon or Africa.  Rachel adds a touch of milk and a little sugar to our cups.  We stir, smell, taste, sigh, and sip.  It’s a magical experience. 

A great espresso is just that, but it’s not tea.  The only other liquid that brings me a simillar type of pleasurable experience is when I am lucky enough to enjoy a special glass of wine.  Fascinating.  A realization just clicked inside that I connect both tea and wine with romance, which means they are  intimately intertwined with peak experiences Rachel and I have enjoyed together-quiet, leisurely breakfasts at home, a tea shop in Paris, afternoon tea at the Four Seasons, a dinner in a corner booth at Vetri, dinner with friends in Rome, and many other entrancing moments.

Wine, Pizza and Latkes? Where else but on GREAT TASTE!

Steve Siegel making pizzaThe studio is going to be hopping on the next edition of GREAT TASTE.  We'll celebrate the first night of the Jewish holiday of Chanukah by cooking latkes.  Latkes are one of my favorite foods.  Actually, I've never met a potato in any form that didn't look like it was begging for me to taste it.  But, there are latkes and there are latkes.  Those folks who think they can be baked and still bring honor to the name are dead wrong.  We'll be frying them up.  Stop by if you are around the studio or make them at home along with us.  Here's what you need to have prepared ahead of time-grated potatoes, minced shallot or onion, peanut oil or extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and a frying pan.  We'll put everything together.  Click the link for an excellent article to read that gives you the real info on making the best potato latkes.
