Some may inquire as to why a chef or restaurant would choose to serve or carry American wines over the French versions which many consider to be the best. In reality, American wines have continuously stood up to the test against French wines proving to be just as good as and many times better than its French versions.
The American Wine Industry began to get attention in the 1960’s. By the 1970’s, Americans were producing wine that could compete with the French who had been the number 1 wine producers throughout history. Even though American wine was comparable to that of the French, the world still did not accept that any wines could be better than those produced in France.
I found this recipe when visiting the blog of a person who liked my post about my Grill Master service. I now am a follower of the blog, Patrons of the Pit.
I am updating my repertoire of grill marinades and other recipes for the upcoming Summer season and Patrons of the Pit seem to have a very nice selection of tested grill recipes to pull from.
I will definitely be trying the following recipe they recently posted. These wings are described as “A salty and sweet affair with a touch of garlic.” Sounds like a winner to me! The recipe also calls for the chicken to be smoked with peach wood; and I can just imagine the sweet smoky flavor now! Here’s the recipe if you are as interested as I am.

Since I posted the Albondigas Soup from the Mexican-inspired romantic dinner I did for a client, I thought I’d post the beverages that were in the menu as well. The White Sangria contains an apple liquor that gives it an especially fruity taste.
The wife loved White Sangria so I made that as her drink for the dinner. She said it was the absolute best she had ever tasted. Her husband did not drink alcohol so I made a Mock Champagne for him which he also loved. I left these recipes behind for them as well. Now you can try them too!
Mother’s Day is quickly approaching! This year’s date is Sunday May 12. While some search for ideas, most people are thinking, “Take Mom to dinner” for this special day but did you know that 75 million Americans are also planning to take their mother’s out to eat on Mother’s Day according to the National Restaurant Association? How unique is that?
“But Mom wants to go to a restaurant!”, you say? Do you know the #1 reason 51% of mothers choose this option? They are the ones cooking normally for family events. They simply want a break from cooking! 27% of mothers say they choose a restaurant as a way to socialize with family and friends. The ability to create lasting memories is the reason behind 16% of mothers choice of eating at a restaurant on Mother’s Day. 6% of mothers who choose a restaurant for Mother’s Day are Foodies and would choose this option for most occasions.
What if you could give your Mom each of those options all while surprising her with something special and unique this year! Get together with your siblings and simply hire a Private Chef to truly indulge your mother on Mother’s Day! Here’s a few ideas.
I have recently decided to change my service from that of a Personal Chef to a Private Chef. As a Personal Chef, I did not like the fact that the integrity of my food relied on you, the client, and your ability to reheat. I prefer to cook and serve immediately as one of the things I love about being a chef is being able to see and hear you enjoying the cuisines I have made. As I began to discuss this change with current clients, I realized that most of you do not understand the differences between these 2 types of chefs, Personal and Private, and which would be best for your family.
As you, and millions of others, seek alternative, healthier sources of food, you are quickly discovering that hiring a chef is a possibility. If interested in hiring a chef for your family, you must decide whether it is a Personal Chef or a Private Chef that better fits your needs.
