Felicidades a nuestro cheff Raul Ortegon por esos deliciosos platillos de la cocina mexicana, y su gran disciplina y constancia, en su trabajo gastronomino. Atte. Lic David Cuevas de Pozoleria Los Cazadores en Acapulco!!!
A couple of things: first, while Marcus Samulesson may be Harlem based, he definitely isn't black, nor does the dishes that he makes, speak for the majority of African-American culture. As for the Neely's, part of what made their show a success (in the beginning) was the fact that they were affectionate. They helped portray a positive image of not only successful marriage in the African-American community, but they also showed that we can own successful food franchises that are not modeled on what another culture dictates to us. As I said, this was part of what made them successful in the beginning. Over time, their dishes changed to be some of the same dishes that are seen on other shows. Yes healthy eating does need to be shown and promoted, but BBQ is a big part of the African-American community. No one complained when Paula Deene cooked dishes with massive amounts of grease or butter in them, so why complain about the Neelys making BBQ? That's what "brought them to the dance" so it only made since to perfect it while occasionally introducing new dishes. As for Sunny Anderson, I thought her show was good in the beginning but the same thing happened to her that happened to the Neely's as far as dishes goes: she changed so much that her dishes no longer even resembled what we actually make in the African-American community. I agree in a sense with what was said about Big Daddy's House, as far as the focus not matching the title of the show, or the drastic changes in dishes from week to week. Despite this, I still couldn't figure out why his show was cancelled.
Just made this for a Patriot's Playoff game! It's perfect! Thanks Clint Medlock!!
Maria from New England!
I really liked this recipe, my kids had a great time making this
We love Buddy's Nuts! So delicious. Great Article. It is fun to hear the story behind the recipes and and the name. Keep 'em coming.
You left out Thirsty Nomad, who are predicting an "early 2016" opening, across I-77 from OMB and Sugar Creek. In brewery time, that's probably "late 2016 if they're lucky", but still. http://thirstynomadbrewing.com/blog/
I really like the last food network star winner Eddie Jackson but they stuck with him possibly the worst show yet. "BBQ Battle" or something like that has absolutely zero focus. Eddie's got a great personality but apparently his only direction was to be "fired up ex-jock". What a waste.
As a Magazine Publisher that focuses on Our Black culture, We are the best cooks in the World. Unlike most observations and intents, if these Chef's show productions were focused to the intent of making their shows successful, it would be! Sunny, Aaron, The Neely's etc... We know the Game.. So, they ran a good course, Hang in there Sunny.. We got chu sista... As for Us in general, we must continue to redirect our attention towards our success. Own your networks, your businesses, your talents and platforms.. and change the paradigm....Period!.. W>NF Las Vegas!
I just want to share with you what I found out from this goodie, I wrote it on Vice http://munchies.vice.com/es/articles/la-torta-cubana-no-llego-nadando-a-mexico
For anyone who got shut out of the Cold Mountain sweepstakes, give Anderson Valley Winter Solstice or Great Lakes Christmas Ale a shot.
Shawn's food is truly amazing. The flavors are impressive to vegan and the non-vegan alike. We love the pop up dinners and Shawn designed the menu and was our chef at a recent fundraiser event. We have never heard so many rave reviews from our attendees. Can't wait to have him back for our next event.
Shawn is an awesome chef! Could almost make me a vegan but not quite yet! His desserts are delicious!
How do we as foodie drivers contact you Auna when things are wrong I personally need to know how the payment system works from you cause I feel ripped off
THIS MAN IS A CULINARY ARTIST. HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE A 0ASSION FOR BAKING GREATNESS. THEIR CREATIONS ARE SUBLIME. CHARLOTTE IS BEYOND BLESSED TO HAVE THESE BAKING WIZARDS IN THEIR MIDST.
Really looking forward to this place! However, can it really be considered the "edge of South End"? Isn't it in a traditional commercial strip down South Blvd?
It is unfortunate that people can post anonymously!!! Serious accusations from a nameless faceless hater? I have been there! If you can't identify yourself, why should you be allowed to trash someone's reputation? Haters gonna Hate!!! Feel the Love of the Dirty Hippie instead:)
I have had the pleasure of knowing Vinny for a short time frame. He has been insturmental in turning around the Brush'nBeats, third Friday event at Charlotte Art League. Every time Vinny walks in the building he brings a level of energy and creativity I personally enjoy. I look forward to supporting the Dirty Hippie.
I have spent some time with these two fine young gentlemen in Asheville and i will say they are definitely not scum....they mite of been broke and un-able to pay the bill, but Scum they are not!!! I have personally seen them work VERY hard to get this point and I am Extremely proud of them!!!
The Trierweiler Twins are AWESOME, TALENTED, ARTISTIC AND TRULY GREAT PEOPLE. I live in the Grand Rapids area and went to the Dirty Hippie there. It was a great hangout for local musicians and it drew a wonderfully diverse clientele. I LOVED the dirty Hippie and would highly recommend anyone who has never met the Twins to visit their new place and say "hello". Get to know them and form your own opinion! Your gonna love 'em!!! Good luck Twins….your AWESOME!!!
