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.

The over-medium egg is one of the trickier renditions of a fried egg to master as it calls for just a portion of the yolk to be runny and the rest of the egg perfectly cooked through. However, you can easily master it with some practice and these three things...

The Things We Do for Pizza
February 28th, 2020
Fast food and I are not typically found in the same room but allow me to clarify; I think whatever your body tells you it needs to eat in the moment is a great choice. Most of the line cooks I know that work at busy high-in restaurants live off of Taco Bell because their days are so exhausting, demoralizing, and full of screaming sous chefs, insurmountable amounts of dinner tickets, gallons and gallons of prepped food and liquid to be hoisted, hauled, emulsified, reduced, and properly chilled down, and then at 11:00 pm when service ends they have to clean, restock, and scrub down their stations...

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...

January 4th, 2019
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:
  1. It gives you the opportunity to say something more clearly or kindly.
  2. You sound very wise when you pass on this knowledge.
  3. You get to peruse a shockingly large list of adjectives you didn’t know you knew!...

A Bag of Bananas & a Bottle of Tamari
December 17th, 2018
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...
