The “supreme” of an orange is the perfect segment of fruit with all the peel, pith, and membrane removed. It’s a bit more of an advanced technique in that it may take some practice but the process if fairly simple and straightforward.

October 26th, 2019
A mango is fairly simple to cut once you understand what you’re working with. They say “all roads lead to the same end” which is true in a sense of cutting a mango. You can cut a mango a multitude of ways and as long as you get the fruit out in a semblance of the form you were looking for, I’d call that a success.

Tessie Comes to Portland
February 28th, 2019
I discovered February had come to an end when one of my coworkers remarked that there was no “29th” day of February as I labeled and dated a package of smoked salmon I had just portioned. I blinked stupidly, decided he was right and pondered the concept of leap years as I ripped off a new strip of masking tape and marked “3/1” on it...

Recipe Fails and Walmart Woes
February 15th, 2019
It was the sort of Tuesday that made you question whether it was actually Monday. The kitchen I currently run closes at 3:00 pm and I faithfully watched the seconds tick by till the clock struck three before bellowing out “86 Kitchen!”...

This year I discovered a new tool; To encourage people and myself to think of three ways to phrase something before blurting it out. Its benefits are three-fold:

The month of December was a special time in my professional life. Let’s just be real here, I currently run a small kitchen program out of one of the more “well-to-do” coffee shops in PDX. We poach eggs, toast the toast, whack pits out of avocados with vigor and then carefully shingle, and sometimes shmear, the lovely green fruit onto toast and sell it for $10 a pop. And the locals can’t get enough of it, it’s fascinating to watch...

If you don’t know what Petfinder is, it is someones brilliant creation of an app that allows dog shelters to put up their adoptable dogs with a bio, their picture, and a bit of info about them. Think of it like an online dating site that you scroll through from your bed on a Saturday morning and totally fall in love with the idea of someone...
