Steve Paterson commented on Erin Martin's blog post Your Craziest "In the Trenches" Restaurant Story?
"Two middle aged and extremely drunk golfers getting a hand job at the bar by a morbidly obese and very fugly prep cook after her shift. I am not kidding or exaggerating."

"Que the music..."

...This is the end

Beautiful friend

This is the end

My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end

Of everything that stands, the end

No safety or surprise, the end

I'll never look into your eyes...again

Can you picture what will be

So limitless and free

Pavarotti and Jon Bon Jovi "Let it Rain/Fa Che Piova"

I'm a moderate Bon Jovi fan but this song is perfect! I read that this has never been recorded in a studio and was written personally by Jon for Luciano and only ever performed here live...

The Pav and Bryan Adams "O Sloe Mio"

Simply awesome!...and a little… Continue

Julie & Julia...a movie review and a lot less...(surprise bonus included!)

Posted on November 6, 2009 at 1:31pm 5 Comments

I have to confess, I have never been a huge fan of Julia Child. It's not that I ever had any issues with her personally, she just wasn't my 'thing'. I now realize that this was probably a mistake. I should have made her my thing. My bad!

As a young and aspiring gourmet cook in my teens, I was more interested in Chef Martin Yan's Cooking Show, Yan Can Cook.

I could actually watch his… Continue

Lessons in Boh Safety from Calamity Jane

Posted on October 24, 2009 at 10:58am 3 Comments

Watching this video, at first I was slightly amused, then confused, then concerned, and eventually reached the climactic point of astonishment.

You simply have to see this to believe it!

This video could easily be used by any restaurant manager or even corporate to teach employees what NOT to do if a fire erupts in the kitchen.

There are so many mistakes made by this one employee, you could easily write a quiz to see how many mistakes people catch by watching… Continue

Thanks Steve. I actually turned on Daniel Poon to the site this morning. (Hector - CEO of Neptune's son) Daniel has a very cool website he created that I will forward to you. He's a Cordon Bleu trained chef and created a website to show his home cooking which rivals most restaurants. Not only are the recipes there, but he photographs steps and such and does a great job. He and his fiance created it from scratch.

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
