Here's a few Comments on "Hell's Kitchen"....from my Facebook Page 7-22-09

First I posted:

Patti Hauffe: I am sorry - you know I love all my chef buddies,but "Hell's Kitchen" is a joke. It does nothing but make a mockery of the Restaurant Business, chefs, servers, clients &all concerned. No one would take the most well experienced chef into a new kitchen & not orientate them and expect a full service given.Just like throwing a non swimmer in the deep end of the pool and say sink or swim!

Here's a few comments:

Interesting info regarding the AIG bailout-more fuel for the fire...

Posted on April 29, 2009 at 7:45am 1 Comment

Remember when this economic crisis hit, and Congress let Bear Stearns go

under, pushed a bunch of forced marriages between banks, etc.?

Then they bailed out AIG. At the time didn't it make you think... "That's strange.

What does an insurance company have to do with this crisis?"

Well this could just be the answer...among other things, AIG INSURES THE PENSION TRUST OF THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS!!

No wonder they got bailed out right away!

Heck with… Continue

Patti-The sun's trying to peek out for the first time since july 17, a great day for foraging wild blueberries and boletes. I've lived in small towns where these ingredients were only availabe or cost effective by picking them myself, I first did this as a child and then with a degree in horticulture and plant pathology. I love to use these things to create interest and to set my food apart.. PLus its nice to get out of the kitchen and into the woods, I.d love to talk with other forager chefs.. ANNIE

Hi Patti,

The nearest thing to stone fruit infused oil that I supply would be our Fruit spice which we can infuse into macadamia nut oil. It has a berry/passionfruit character with a hint of spice.

We do have macadamia nut oil infused with a wide variety of essential oils from lemon myrtle, forest anise, mountain pepper, forest peppermint, mintbush and the fruit spice I mentioned above.

You can try some of these in my range of Splashes which I have in Whole Foods Markets nationally and selected specialty outlets or on-line at They are under the Vic Cherikoff Down Under brand and labeled as Daintree Drizzle, Coolangatta Splash, High Country Zinger and Outback Smoke.

Hello Chefs & ALL THOSE WHO EAT! How are you?

Here's a cute one I love to share - if you've heard it ...I think it deserves repeating -

I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.

Have a delicious day!

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.

TED: Louie Schwartzberg: Hidden miracles of the natural world - Louie Schwartzberg (2014)

We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye.

At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
