ALL HAIL CAESAR……WELL THE SALAD THAT IS! COOKING WITH CHEF ANDERSON

first_imgCOOKING WITH CHEF ANDERSON: Have you ever wondered where the names of some restaurant dishes come from, Pear belle Helene, pavlova, crepe suzette, Caesar salad and many more. They are of course named after famous people of their time, pavlova is named after a Russian ballerina, pear belle Helene after an Italian operetta and Caesar salad is named after! Not the Roman emperor but a restauranteur Caesar Cardini , he came up with the recipe in the 1920’s when there was a shortage of ingredients, his recipe included romain lettuce, chopped garlic, croutons, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, olive oil, egg yolks (raw ), Worcestershire sauce and black pepper.Some say he added sliced anchovies to the salad but others think different and the fishy flavour actually came from the Worcester sauce.To quote“The big food rage in Hollywood—the Caesar salad—will be introduced to New Yorkers by Gilmore’s Steak House.“It’s an intricate concoction that takes ages to prepare and contains (zowie!) lots of garlic, raw or slightly coddled eggs, croutons, romaine, anchovies, parmeasan [sic] cheese, olive oil, vinegar and plenty of black pepper.” The salad stormed America due to the fact that it was tasty, easy to prepare, contained no meat which was scarce and Cardini prepared it at the table which made the elite of Hollywood feel special.It’s very difficult to get the real Caesar dressing now, raw egg yolks are frowned upon when making salad dressings unless they are pasteurised first as they are in mayonnaise.A few years ago I did work in a restaurant where the dressing was made to order in a blender but again you have to be careful.The Caesar salad we serve is made with a variation on the classic recipe using fish sauce to give it the unique flavour and of course nowadays chicken is added to create a wonderful lunchtime special, fresh Parmesan and a wee bit of crispy bacon just for that added flavour.I do add another secret ingredient but that’s my secret!!When purchasing a Caesar sauce in the supermarket you have to be careful, the cheaper the sauce usually means an inferior flavour, this one time I bought a low calorie sauce and regretted every mouthful, when I read the ingredients it read in small print, “Buttermilk ” it was rotten, I can still taste it now!! Go for the full fat version and go for a walk afterwards! It’s only a treat in fairness.I love going online and looking up the origins of food, you will be amazed at where some of the ideas came from and how food had evolved over the years.I follow a gentleman in America on snapchat AJ……@rollout925 who gives great food science advice in his snaps, great tips on food, cooking ideas and smoking food too, give him a follow if you’re interested.So onto the recipe. This is a very quick and easy Caesar dressing. You can use iceberg lettuce if you wish, I use the bags of mixed leaves as remain is hard to get in large quantities.This recipe is a great lunch or evening meal treat, try to chill the dressing for a couple of hours and mix the salad just before serving as the leuttuce will go soggy if you mix it too early.For four people  – You will need the following:200mls of real mayonnaise2 cloves of chopped garlic1 tablespoon of fish sauceHomemade or shop bought croutons, there are essential to add texture to the salad and they’re are so tasty with the dressing.Pinch of ground black pepper.Hot water to thin the mayonnaise.Fresh Parmesan.2 freshly roasted chicken fillets , allowed to cool slightly2 bags of mixed leaves washed & dried.8 cooked streaky bacon rashers ( crispy if possible and warm )Method:For the dressing:In a bowl whisk the mayonnaise, fish sauce, garlic & pepper together.Add a little hot water if needed to thin the dressing down to a double cream consistency.Allow to chill for a couple of hours.To assemble the salad.In a large bowl add your leaves.Slice your chicken breasts and add to the leaves , add the croutons & dressing and toss quickly.Divide onto your plates.Grate the fresh Parmesan on top and finish with the crispy bacon.If you are coeliac simply leave out the croutons and add in some extra chopped peppers to give that crunchy texture.Have a great weekend folks and please share this recipe if you wish.ALL HAIL CAESAR……WELL THE SALAD THAT IS!

City renews lease on students’ ‘Stree Smart’ driving program

first_img“I didn’t really know that you have to be insured yourself,” she said. “I knew the vehicle had to be insured, but I didn’t know that you, the driver, have to be insured.” David Tamir, co-owner of Valley Bob’s Driving School, Inc., in Woodland Hills, said any additional instruction will help, but was no substitute for behind-the-wheel training. The biggest factors in teen crashes are immaturity and lack of driving experience. “It’s something as basic as not knowing their car is going to move once you put it in gear,” Tamir said. “I get kids who can’t even keep the car straight in the lane, let alone be able to execute a proper turn.” lisa.sodders@dailynews.com (818) 713-3663160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsMany of the young drivers his office prosecutes “simply did not know the rules of the road,” he said. High school students make up 7 percent of licensed drivers, but 14 percent of all traffic fatalities; they also are involved in 20 percent of all traffic crashes. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that from 1995 to 2004, crashes involving 15- to 17-year-old drivers killed more than 30,000 people, including nearly 20,000 passengers, other motorists or pedestrians. Without school-based driver’s ed, students have two choices to get their learner’s permit: take lessons from a private instructor and put at least 50 hours behind the wheel with an older adult; or wait until they are 17 1/2 years old, when all they have to do is pass the written DMV test. Los Angeles High School student Kenya Mejia, 17, said her father paid $200 for her to take private driving lessons, but she still found the Street Smart program helpful. A pilot program that has taught nearly 1,000 rookie drivers the rules of the road will be expanded to all Los Angeles Unified high schools within a year, City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo said Tuesday. The one-hour “Street Smart” course is taught by deputy city attorneys who specialize in traffic-related crimes. It educates students about insurance laws, what to do if they’re in an accident and the dangers of street racing and drunk driving. By the end of 2007, the program, which is cosponsored by NASCAR and the California Speedway, will be expanded to all 56 LAUSD high schools. “Despite the staggering numbers of teenage driving deaths, most public schools no longer offer driver’s education, and many students receive little, if any, instruction about responsible driving,” Delgadillo said at a news conference at Los Angeles High School. last_img read more

Land ownership still an issue for development of Letterkenny to Burtonport railway line

first_imgA total of 65% of the old railway line between Burtonport and Letterkenny is still usable from a technical stand point, Donegal County Council has been told.It follows a question by county councillor Marie Therese Gallagher who asked what progress had been made on the railway initiative.She was told that the main problem with the development of the line was land ownership. A council spokesman said “The vast majority of the line is in private ownership. Although there have been examples of successful negotiation, impediments and sections where landowners are unaware of the project still exist.”The line was built in 1903 but the last passenger line on this track was in 1941 and in 1947 the line closed entirely.The council added that it is their intention to conduct the necessary technical studies and landowner agreements to allow a funding application to be made to the soon to be announced greenway fund.“The council proposes to appoint the necessary technical resource to this project within the coming weeks,” said a spokesman.
