The healthiest Cheese…..

Some of the healthiest cheeses are feta and goat cheese, which are better for lactose intolerance. Cottage cheese and ricotta have more than 11 grams of muscle-building protein in a single serving. Swiss cheese is naturally lower in sodium, so it is a good option for people with hypertension.

BISON LIVER TACOS
Wild Idea’s Buffalo Liver is clean and rich, but it also is able to absorb the flavor of a marinade. I added a bit of adobo to my red chili sauce for a little smokiness and then offset/complemented that with a vegetable pico de gallo. It’s sooooo good!

* For a super quick short cut, you could substitute purchased red chili sauce and pico de gallo.

Taco Ingredients: (6 to 8 tacos, 3 to 4 servings)

BISON LIVER TACOS

1 – 8 oz. pkg. Wild Idea Buffalo Liver
1 – onion, halved and sliced thin

1 – cup milk
1 – cup red chili sauce (recipe below)
Olive oil
Butter
6 to 8 – white corn tortillas
Organic Mexican shredded cheese blend
Goat cheese
Vegetable pico de gallo

Preparation:

1 – Rinse the liver under cold water and place it in a bowl with the milk, cover and let it soak in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours.
2 – Remove the liver from the milk, rinse again under cold water and pat dry. Cut the liver pieces into smaller julienne pieces.
3 – Place the sliced liver in a bowl with the red chili sauce and let it marinade for 6 to 24 hours.
4 – Remove the liver from the red chili sauce and place on a paper towel to absorb any liquid.
5 – In a skillet over medium high heat add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of butter and the sliced onion. Season with salt and pepper and sauté until tender and slightly caramelized.
6 – Add the sliced liver and sauté until the liver is lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat.
7 – On a flat top griddle or in a pan, drizzle a little olive oil and heat. Lightly brown the tortillas and turn. Top with grated cheese while the bottom side is browning. Remove from the griddle/pan.
8 – Top the tortillas with the liver and onions, Pico de Gallo and crumbled goat cheese.
9 – For side dishes, I accompanied the tacos with a cucumber salad and sliced cantaloupe.

Red Chili Sauce

Ingredients:
3 – dried ancho chilies
3 – dried guajillo or Anaheim chilies
3 – cloves garlic
¼ – onion, chopped
2 – cups boiling water
1 – tablespoons olive oil
2 – tablespoons cider vinegar
1 – tablespoon Jill’s Mexican Seasonings or Mexican seasonings
1 – teaspoon sugar

Preparation:

1 – Remove stems and seeds from the dried chilies.
2 – Boil two cups of water and place the dried chilies, garlic cloves and onion in the pot, cover and remove the pot from the heat, allowing the chilies to soften for one hour.
3 – Return the pot to the stove over high heat, heating until small bubbles break the surface.
4 – Pour the liquid and the vegetables into a blender and add the remaining ingredients. Puree until smooth, adding more hot water if needed.
5 – Strain the red chili sauce through a strainer to remove any chili skins.
6 – Season to taste. Serve warm or room temp.
7 – Vegetable Pico de Gallo
So good, you just need a spoon!

Ingredients:
1- cup finely diced cherry tomatoes, *optional – seeds removed
½ – cup finely diced onion, white, red or green onions
½ – cup finely chopped cilantro
1 – small jalapeno pepper, finely diced
½ – cup finely diced, red cabbage

Making a Quesadilla………………..

Cheddar, Monterey Jack, goat cheese, or Oaxaca cheese are all good options—choose one, or combine two for a creamy, melty mashup. Grate your cheese if it needs to be grated, crumble if not. In a pinch, you can certainly use pre-sliced cheese. You could stop here and make a cheese-only quesadilla. Other Ingredients often include a variety of vegetables like onions, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and some type of protein such as diced chicken or steak.

One of America’s Favorites – California-Style Pizza

January 7, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pizza topped with egg from the Chez Panisse cafe

California-style pizza (also known as California pizza or Gourmet pizza) is a style of single-serving pizza that combines New York and Italian thin crust with toppings from the California cuisine cooking style. Its invention is generally attributed to chef Ed LaDou, and Chez Panisse, in Berkeley, California. Wolfgang Puck, after meeting LaDou, popularized the style of pizza in the rest of the country. It is served in a number of California Cuisine restaurants. Such restaurant chains as California Pizza Kitchen, Extreme Pizza, and Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza are three major pizza franchises associated with California-style pizza.

California-style pizza was invented more or less simultaneously in 1980 by Ed LaDou (the “Prince of Pizza”), then working as pizza chef for Spectrum Foods’ Prego Restaurant in San Francisco’s Cow Hollow neighborhood, and by pizza chefs working for Alice Waters at the Chez Panisse cafe in Berkeley, California.

LaDou had learned pizza-making in the 1970s as a teenager at Frankie, Johnnie & Luigi Too, a traditional New York-style pizzeria in Mountain View, California. He made pizzas briefly at Ecco, an upscale restaurant at the Hyatt Hotel in Palo Alto, California, before starting at Prego. Although Prego specialized in classic, Italian-style thin crust pizzas, its chefs encouraged LaDou to experiment with prosciutto, goat cheese, and truffles in their wood-burning oven, and send his results to guests. At one table, to whom he served an off-menu invention involving mustard, ricotta, pâté and red pepper turned out to be chef Wolfgang Puck.

California-style pizza with greens, egg, bacon, and garden vegetables

By 1980, Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse and its head chef, Jeremiah Tower, had already invented California cuisine, a combination of French and Italian techniques and presentation with fresh local ingredient-focused flavors. Waters was a long-time fan of Tommasso’s Italian restaurant in San Francisco’s North Beach, which had installed the West Coast’s first wood-fired pizza oven when it opened in 1935. After traveling to Italy, Waters decided to make an open kitchen featuring a Tomasso’s-style pizza oven the focus of the new cafe she was opening above her main dining room. Although prepared in classic fashion, her chefs added exotic fine ingredients to their single-serving pizzas and calzones, such as goat cheese and duck sausage. Her cafe, and its pizzas in particular, were an instant success, attracting wide attention among food critics.

Wolfgang Puck, in 1980 and 1981, was preparing to open the restaurant that would make him famous, Spago, in West Hollywood, California. Initially conceived as a pizzeria, Spago’s was modeled after the upstairs cafe at Chez Panisse. He was so impressed with the pizza LaDou had made for him at Prego, he hired LaDou as head pizza chef. Under Puck’s guidance, LaDou developed more than 250 pizza concepts using ingredients such as scallops, roe, and baby zucchini flowers. Among their most famous invention was “Jewish pizza”, a pizza dough first cooked then topped with smoked salmon, crème fraîche, capers, and dill. Another innovation was using infused olive oil, baby vegetables, chili oil, and flavored dough.

In 1985 LaDou helped two inexperienced lawyer-restaurateurs, Richard L. Rosenfeld and Larry S. Flax, start a new restaurant concept, California Pizza Kitchen (also known as “CPK”). He brought them many of Spago’s recipes, which he had carefully saved. The new restaurant borrowed the concept of open kitchens centered around wood-burning pizza ovens from Spago, but instead of exotic gourmet ingredients it used innovative but simpler comfort food toppings. When the new restaurant’s chef quit less than a month before opening, LaDou quickly designed and cooked an entire menu, inventing the now-ubiquitous barbecue chicken pizza on the spot. LaDou also helped develop pizza menus for Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and the Hard Rock Cafe.

Both Wolfgang Puck and California Pizza Kitchen were instrumental in turning California-style pizza from a gourmet food trend to a mass consumer food product. Based on the success of his pizzas and his status as a celebrity chef, Puck opened a series of restaurants, ranging from high end clones of Spago, to convenience chains for airports and mall food courts. California Pizza Kitchen grew to 200 outlets. Both introduced frozen pizzas, but after an early success Puck’s supermarket lines were overtaken by CPK’s, which are backed by Kraft foods.

 

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Wild Rice Arugula Salad with Maple Glazed Acorn Squash

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Wild Rice Arugula Salad with Maple Glazed Acorn Squash. I found this one on many web sites and I’m going with the one from the PBS Recipe web site. The Maple Glazed Acorn Squash and Rice had me sold on the dish! You can find this recipe at the PBS/Recipe website. At the PBS site they have an incredible selection of recipes from all cuisines. So check it out today and don’t forget to Support your local PBS Network! So enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/

Wild Rice Arugula Salad with Maple Glazed Acorn Squash
Combine wild rice, maple glazed acorn squash, pomegranate and goat cheese.

Ingredients
For the Acorn Squash:
1 small acorn squash, halved, cut into 1/4-inch slices and seeds discarded
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Salt
For the Rice:
1/2 cup wild rice
1 1/4 cup water
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
For the Dressing:
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
For the Assembly:
3 ounces baby or regular arugula
2 tablespoons minced fresh Italian parsley
Seeds from 1/4 pomegranate
1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled

Directions
1 – Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread out the slices of acorn squash. Brush both sides of the slices with maple syrup and sprinkle with a few pinches of salt. Transfer to the oven to roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until the squash is tender with a fork. The cook time may depend on the size of your squash so just be sure to check on it.
2 – Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, set over medium heat, combine the rice, water, salt and olive oil. Bring the mixture to an aggressive simmer and then immediately lower to a gentle simmer and cover. Cook the rice until water is evaporated and until the texture is tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Wild rice depends on the type you end up buying; I’d recommend following the instructions on the back of the bag (it most likely will be similar to these instructions but may vary slightly).
3 – In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together, along with a few pinches of salt and a few turns of freshly ground pepper.
4 – At this point, you can store all of the components separately and toss everything together before serving. If you want to assemble now, toss the arugula and Italian parsley with the dressing, being sure the leaves are thoroughly coated with the dressing. Add the rice and toss once more. Arrange the slices of acorn squash and top with the pomegranate seeds and goat cheese crumbles.
