Michelle and Suzanne Rousseau, authors of Caribbean Potluck: Modern Recipes from Our Family Kitchen.

 

Michelle and Suzanne Rousseau  are two celebrity chefs  in Jamaica, thanks to their restaurant, their catering business, and their popular online TV series and blog Two Sisters and a Meal.

The pair – who have been working together for 20 years – recently released their first book, Caribbean Potluck: Modern Recipes from Our Family Kitchen.

 

The siblings have a fascinating yet typically Caribbean heritage — they are a “mix-up and blenda” of African, French, German, Indian, Scottish, Haitian, Cuban, and British ancestors — which they tap into as they  turn out on dishes that can only be defined as gourmet Jamaican fusion.

Winemakers Bo and Heidi Barrett of Barrett & Barrett, Napa CA -  the formidable team and superstars of the American wine world.

 

 

Who hasn’t heard of the Judgment of Paris ? As epic as the World Soccer Cup the legendary Paris Wine Tasting proclaimed California wines the winners.   On May 24 1976, French judges, all wine experts, carried out a gripping blind tasting of top-quality Chardonnays from Burgundy and California and another of  Bordeaux wines from France and Cabernet Sauvignon wines from California.  Surpise! A California wine rated best in each category! The American victory stunned the world and put Napa on the wine map overnight, carving its place in history.
Bo Barrett, of Chateau Montelena, who was working at Chateau Montelena with his father, dared submit Montelena’s 1973 Chardonnay to the “Judgment of Paris” competition… the rest is the stuff of legends….
CAROLE: Heidi Barrett, Bo’s wife, was the wine maker responsible for Screaming Eagle, a California cult Cab, when the wines achieved 99 and 100 point ratings from Robert Parker and started commanding in excess of $1,000 per bottle.  At  the 2000 Napa Valley Wine Auction, a 6-liter bottle of the ’92 Screaming Eagle set a world record for the highest price ever paid for a single bottle of wine selling for $500,000.
Married for over 26 years, Heidi and Bo have each well established their own individual winemaking track records and talk about their delicious cooperation.

Independence Day is the height of the summer entertaining season--a day with family and friends, capped off by brilliant fireworks.

The answer to this dilemma is to find the next best thing to home cooking.  

Brian Collaro,  Regional Prepared Foods Coordinator for Whole Foods Markets, clues us in on the many choices available to let us relax this 4th of July and the rest of the summer, while entertaining.

Interview with Lee Brian Schrager: Fried & True, more than 50 recipes for America’s Best Fried chicken and Sides

 

Some like it hot, some like it mild, some like it in a bucket, others in a bun; some like a crispy skin, others prefer it skinless…  In his new book Fried & True Lee Brian Schrager, founder of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival and  VP  of corporate communications and national events for Southern Wine & Spirit, chronicles more than 50 of America’s best fried chicken recipes—both back-road and big-city iterations. He leaves no bone unpicked as he explores the phenomenon of what he calls America’s “number-one guilty pleasure” and peppers it with interesting facts (like the origins of fried chicken – Scottish! –  or the story of waffle with fried chicken) and tricks of the trade.
