Re: “Three questions with chef Jay Pierce of soon-to-open ROCKSalt

If there is anyone that I admire as chef is Chef pierce. Working under him at emerils was like working with family on a sunday dinner where every one gathers for the smell of good and flavorful food. I think he is doing a awesome job at what he does best. If anyone who wants to learn about cooking learn from chef pierce he will take the time to educate and motivate and inspire to keep moving foward. His favorite thing i always heard him say is "work smart not hard" now hearing him open up Rock Salt its a very great thing to hear ! I learn to keep my composure from him when the pressure in the kitchen gets heavy. Now me years later being a General/Kitchen manager playing multi roles at one of the upcoming restaruants Graffit junktion it motivates me more from hearing chef Pierce success to go even harder to achieve my goals of opening a restaurant. Great job Chef pierce! Hope to come see your restauraunt and eat delicious food.

Re: “Eat With Your Dollars: Chocolate

What do you know about Enjoy Life? I know it's not organic, but I started to buy them because they have only 3 ingredients and my son is sensitive to a lot of things other chocolates have...

Re: “Make Queen's Feast your feast

Also don't make this your "special night out." If you have an anniversary or birthday and want a romantic private evening, go to a nonparticipating restaurant and pay full price. Don't come to a Restaurant Week location and then demand special treatment and complain that it is too crowded and noisy- you get what you pay for.

Re: “Dorie Greenspan's Perfect Party Cake

Holy jumpin' jehosaphat!!! I just made this cake into cupcakes (I have a small cupcake business that I operate from home). I can't believe how delicious they are! I can't believe how incredibly moist and light the cake is! I make North American buttercreams for all my icing recipes and have never tried making swiss buttercream before today. What an incredibly successful first try! I mixed together a small portion of the swiss buttercream and some seedless raspberry jam and filled the cupcakes with this mixture first before icing and sprinkling with coconut. All the components of this recipe put together made an outstanding cupcake. Thank you for sharing Dorie's recipe. I am going to make this in cake form for my mom's 82nd birthday coming up. She is going to love it. This truly is the Perfect Party Cake... wow!

"Ignore the old Big Wok II sign"? That's kinda harsh. I'm not a fan, but they didn't go anywhere.
