Well Done Chef!!
The goal, imho, should be to verse oneself in as many cuisines as possible and develop something that is unique to the area.
The GG cuisine should act as one of the main influences (perhaps as organizer of the others), but "importing slow-smoked brisket from Texas, hand-crafting Mexican street food, churning out basket after basket of deep-fried chicken" is a very good thing as well.
First, though, we must ingest (ahem) these disparate influences, and them we can make them ours.
One of the best articles I've ever read from CCP.
Nice work, very nice work indeed!
I enjoyed this article until the last couple of paragraphs.
"For decades blacks have been pushed out of their homes and neighborhoods so property that was once owned by blacks is now owned by whites" is just a malicious way of saying black people sold their homes to white people.
And "Koreans have Koreatowns, Chinese people have their areas. Same for Jewish people and Italians. No reason we couldn't do the same. It's just going to take us coming together to make it happen" sounds an awful lot like an endorsement for returning to segregation.
Very cool! Didn't know that history and gives me much respect for those trying to recreate that success like chef BJ Dennis!
This is the under appreciated thread of the year.
Unfortunately, yirgacheffe coffee's, even naturals. tend to be very, very tea-like. I'm more interested in coffee's that offer flavors that coffee is best at providing.
If you can find them, the harrar region can produce excellent coffee. LIkewise, Yemen can produce tremendous brews(dragonfly has a wonderful yemen right now that is truly exotic).
Lastly, look for naturals (that is unwashed/unpulped) beans. These are beans that have been picked, and the fruit was allowed to ferment while attached to the bean. It can impart massive amounts of flavor.
Ha. No problem, Jaxx. :)
now my post looks weird. thanks ccp
What does this title mean?
Drove by there about an hour ago. Parking lot was pretty full. Wishing them luck!!!
If I made $84 an hour I could afford an $11 hot dog.
This looks pricey. How are those poor urban people supposed to eat there.
Beautiful space, but you gotta sell a butt-load of over-priced dogs and tots to cover that build-out and overhead. Good luck, but I don't see it happening.
I once went to a bar during one of these draft parties. I've seen less homoerotic behavior at Pantheon.
Royal American. Why would you even consider doing it somewhere else??
Dunkin...the finest of all coffee. A rich deep "arresting" aroma, almost a blue tint to the fine oily top and always accompanied by H. Simpson's Breakfast of Champions choice. Slurping? Puh-lease, the CCPD's been doing that for years with Dunkin.
My boss is trying to teach me about the finer things in coffee life, but alas, I remain not picky and perfectly tolerant of coffee that comes in a K-cup!
Thank you for writing this article, I feel much better about being a coffee cretin, and also learned more about what I'd be looking for if I could break out of my cretinitude and become a coffee snob... er... gourmet? expert? something like that. :)
