|Bravetart: Lexington pastry whiz earns praise for new book Ace Weekly / 39 d. 16 h. 37 min. ago more|
Would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… OUR COOKIES! Would you eat Girl Scout cookies all year round if they were available? (They do lose a little something if you try to store a case in the freezer.) How do you feel about Hostess cupcakes or Little Debbie’s oatmeal cream pies? The new book from Lexington’s Stella Parks, BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts, just may convince you to try making these at home. The book, released in August, was in the making for more than five years, but if you’ve always wanted to know how to make your own Thin Mints or rainbow sprinkles or homemade Snickers bars, it’s well worth the wait. There’s an entire section devoted to “Classic American Brands” where she re-creates homemade versions of Fig Newtons, Animal Crackers, Twinkies, and even Wonder Bread — footnoted, “Homemade versions of the brand-name product referred to are my own recipes, not provided or endorsed by the owners of those brands.” Parks is a Culinary Institute of America trained pastry chef and a senior editor at Serious Eats, whose restaurant work in Lexington earned her a nod as one of 2012’s best new pastry chefs in Food and Wine magazine. On the Lexington food scene, she quickly became famous for menu items like macarons and homemade sprinkles. Her brown sugar, pear and pistachio layer cake landed her on the pages of Garden and Gun Magazine, and a Thanksgiving cake decorating segment at Fox and Friends. Her Serious Eats colleague J. Kenji López-Alt describes his first experience eating one of her confections at a Lexington restaurant in the introduction to the book. “The dessert was a play on Lucky Charms, complete with crunchy, diamond-shaped, multicolored marshmallows and a delicate panna cotta made to taste just like cereal milk. If you ate your Lucky Charms the right way (cereal bits first, semi-soaked marshmallows next, oat-flavored cereal milk to wash it down), you already know what this dessert tastes like in your mind. What’s incredible, though, is that if you were to go home right afterward and pour yourself a bowl of Lucky Charms, you’d find them to be unpalatably sweet, the marshmallows more Styrofoam-like than crunchy. Stella had managed to make a bowl of Lucky Charms that tasted more like Lucky Charms to me than actual Lucky Charms.” So, the recipes in the book are definitely not recipes provided by the brand. They’re actually better. Lopez-Alt cites Parks’s superpower as “her ability to tap directly into those parts of our brains that store our childhood taste memories, unlocking them and stimulating desires that we never even knew we had, hidden away like the creme in the middle of a Devil Dog.” As Parks once pointed out in a blog devoted to a Dairy Queen Oreo Blizzard, “The nature of a Copy Cat recipe is that it takes a lot of subtle factors to re-create a taste we all know and love; if you substitute or deviate from the recipe, it just won’t turn out the same,” but she also spells out the why and the why not (why wouldn’t you use free-range organic eggs? The custard might be delicious, but it won’t resemble Dairy Queen’s soft serve even remotely.) In reviewing the new book, the Washington Post says, “there is a lot to be said for being able to make the perfect version of whatever your childhood guilty pleasure was — and a lot more to be said for one book that delivers them all. Parks adds a remarkable new voice to the world of baking books. Combine smarts with whimsy and you get delicious results.” BraveTart is also the title of Parks’s blog, which regular followers have long known as the source for everything from homemade Pop Tarts to ice cream sandwiches She explained her approach as “buried in 19th century newspapers and trade journals, vintage cookbooks, and the United States Patent Gazette.” She wrote of her methodology, “I’ve watched hours of retro TV commercials, and combed ebay for antique biscuit crates, candy tins, and even a Nabisco employee training manual or two. These little bits and pieces tell a very different story about our favorite desserts, surprisingly sweet slices of American history.” When introducing the book to Serious Eats readers, she said, “I wouldn’t say BraveTart is strictly a cookbook. While my work on Serious Eats focuses on science, my book explores the secret history of classic American sweets. Not the corporate fairy tales we hear time and again, but stories that haven’t been told before—the true meaning of the word ‘Oreo,’ the weirdly vindictive origin of graham crackers, and the marketing-driven machinations that led to Key lime pie.” Hardly any cookbooks offer a cultural, culinary “whodunnit” alongside the recipes, which helps make this one a standout.
|CHEERS: A Toast to Bourbon Month Ace Weekly / 39 d. 18 h. 49 min. ago more|
By Tom Yates Twenty minutes before service, I left the controlled chaos of the kitchen to gather my thoughts and take a quiet stroll through the shaded grounds of My Old Kentucky Home State Park. September means different things to different people. To me, it’s a nostalgic reminder of the two years I taught the Culinary Arts: Bourbon Style Cooking School at the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. For bourbon lovers, it means descending on Bardstown, KY for a nonstop celebration of all things bourbon during the annual two week festival. With a myriad of events scheduled daily and nightly, there’s something for everyone craving bourbon. The Culinary Arts: Bourbon Style Cooking School usually snags a prime spot during the first week of the festival. Smallish in comparison to the other events, it’s the first to sell out as the hot ticket up for grabs to the estimated 53,000 attendees of the two week event. For back to back years, I was fortunate enough to head a catering team for the Bourbon Cooking School and lead (on a cramped corner stage) 250 paying guests through a five course meal jacked up with Jim Beam Bourbon. After months of planning, testing, prepping, and cooking, we’d load up our goods and take our makeshift mobile kitchen 70 miles down the road to Bardstown for the annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival. Set up. Hook Up. Mise. Prep. Cook. Chill. Hold. Mark. Place. Delegate. Lead. Trust. Breathe. Repeat. With very few (zilch) on site resources, precise planning and concise packing was key. Fetching forgotten stuff wasn’t an option. It’s one thing to love the sanctuary of the kitchen when hammering out food, it’s another animal altogether to step out of the kitchen and demo said food in front of an adoring bourbon guzzling crowd. Twenty minutes before service, I needed to breathe. After meeting Fred Noe, the seventh-generation Jim Beam distiller, I gathered the staff for a quick pre-shift rundown and hit the stage for what would become my last (by choice) stint teaching the Culinary Arts: Bourbon Style Cooking. Thankfully, the traditional pre-dinner bourbon toast was obligatory for everyone present. I chugged. • Southern Cornbread with Jim Beam Red Stag Whipped Butter. Check. • Basil Hayden Marinated Shrimp Cocktail Shooter. A Two-Fer. Check. • Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Fried Sage and Jim Beam White Label creme fraiche. Check. • Bakers Bourbon Braised Short Ribs. Check. • Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bookers Bourbon German Chocolate Hard Sauce. Say no more. Check. Double Check. After 25 years, they’ve pulled the Bourbon Cooking School from this year’s festival to make room for other events. Whether or not it returns to the schedule, I’m proud to have joined a long list of area chefs that helped ignite the rage of marrying bourbon with food before it was cool. Trailblazers. The Bourbon Trail. Kentucky Proud. Bakers Bourbon Braised Short Ribs Looking over my prep lists and costs sheets from the event that year, I worked with 250 pounds of Certified Angus Beef Short Ribs. There’s the beef. Revisiting my old recipe recently, I dialed it back a bit. Replacing bourbon with red wine, I cooked the beef with a nod to beef bourgignon. Sear. Brown food equals flavor. I seasoned 4 pounds room temperature Marksbury Farm beef short ribs with salt and pepper. After slicing thick cut bacon into 1/2” lardons, I fried the bacon in a large dutch oven until crispy and scooped the lardons onto a paper towels to drain. While the bacon fat was still smoking hot, I seasoned the short ribs with salt and pepper before searing the ribs on all sides (using tongs to turn). When deeply caramelized, about 4 minutes per side, I pulled them from the pot, and set them aside. Flavor. I drained all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the pot, returned it to the heat, and tumbled 2 sliced carrots, 2 sliced celery stalks, 2 quartered onions into the hot fat. When the vegetables started to sweat, I added 2 crushed garlic cloves, salt, and cracked black pepper. Before the vegetables took on color, I added 2 tablespoons tomato paste and swirled it through the softened vegetables, making a point to coat them with the paste as they cooked down. After the tomato toasted and darkened to a brickish color, I pulled the dutch oven from the heat and deglazed the pot with 1 cup bourbon. I returned the pot to the heat and reduced the bourbon to a glaze before adding 3 cups beef stock, 1 cup additional bourbon, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 bay leaves, 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns, salt, fresh thyme sprigs, fresh parley stems, and fresh rosemary. I brought the stock to a boil, reduced it to a simmer, and slid the the short ribs (covered) into a preheated 350 degree oven. Extras. Two hours into the braise, I sauteed sliced button mushrooms in a combination of butter and oil until golden brown, showered them salt, and set them aside. After adding 1 tablespoon oil to the cast iron skillet, I tumbled 1 pound blanched and peeled whole pearl onions into the skillet, sauteed them until they started to caramelize, scooped them out, and tossed them with the reserved mushrooms. Finish. After three hours, I pulled the short ribs from the oven, carefully removed them to a side plate and strained the braising liquid through a fine mesh sieve, discarding the solids. After skimming the accumulated fat from the top of the sauce, I returned it to the heat and reduced it by half before swirling a beurre manié (a flour and butter paste) into the sauce to thicken it a bit. After briefly warming the short ribs in the satiny bourbon-infused sauce, I nestled the ribs over Weisenberger Mill pimento cheese grits, scattered the sauteed mushrooms and pearl onions to the side, and drizzled additional sauce over the ribs before finishing with salt, cracked black pepper, and micro greens. Kentucky Short Ribs. Bourbonized. Check. September is Bourbon Month. Celebrate responsibly. (More bourbon-infused recipes by Ace food writer Chef Tom at aceweekly.com.)

|How to (deep) fry corn to perfectionAce Weekly / 39 d. 19 h. 4 min. ago more|
BY TOM YATES In my book, summer kicks off when roadside corn trucks dot the rolling country roads and flat bed trucks, stacked high with corn, back into stalls of the farmers market. Caught up in the corn frenzy, wispy silks fly through the air and float gently to the ground as people tear back husks to inspect the hidden jewels. Tender, sweet, and fresh enough to eat raw, few things top the arrival of locally grown corn. By Labor Day, we’ve tried it all. Boiled, steamed, grilled, creamed, or fried, fresh summer corn kindles memories of cookouts and summer picnics. Back in the day, my grandmother fried her garden corn. She’d heap spoonfuls of leftover salty bacon fat in a large cast iron skillet and fry the cut-off kernels until they caramelized and crunched like popcorn. While she creamed a few batches from time to time, boiled whole cobs rarely hit the table. She was the fry queen. As summer moved along, my grandmother instinctively morphed into her ‘depression era’ saving mode, canning the remaining bounty of corn for the leaner times. While her straight up canned corn lost its luster after overwintering in the dusty grim cellar, her preserved corn relishes survived bright and piquant. When my family settled into our own home on the far side of the family farm, my parents took a more modern approach with our garden corn. Bacon fat wasn’t invited to the party. Picked fresh from the garden, it was either meticulously shucked and de-silked before a quick steam or cut from the cob, milked, and briefly sauteed. Salt. Pepper. Butter. Corn. Heaven. During peak season, the endless extra hauls of corn got shucked, cut off, milked, blanched, and frozen. A family history of fresh garden corn. Different generations. Different takes. All fabulous. Nowadays, I’m all over the place when the corn starts rolling in. I love it bacon-wrapped, chargrilled, boiled, steamed, creamed, pureed, pan fried, sauteed, or souffled, Few things can beat corn pudding, spoonbread, or corn bread made with fresh peak season corn. And fried? I take it one step further and toss whole ears of corn into a deep fryer. The intense heat of the fryer quickly caramelizes the corn while simultaneously steaming the inside of the kernels. Slathered in butter, it takes me back to my grandmother’s table, sans the extreme crunch and leftover bacon fat. Deep Fried Corn. Simple. Quick. Fantastic. Lime Chive Butter. I brought 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter to room temperature before adding 1/2 teaspoon white pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice, and 3 tablespoons snipped garden chives. I set the butter aside and cranked a deep fryer to 350 degrees. Typically, I fry whole ears of corn. For more manageable smaller corn bites, I cut them down a notch. After shucking and cleaning six ears of Wayne County bi-colored corn, I trimmed the ends before slicing the ears into 1 1/2” discs. Working in batches, to not overcrowd the deep fryer, I carefully lowered the corn into the hot oil for about 3-4 minutes. When they started to crisp around the edges and caramelize, I tumbled them onto a parchment paper-lined sheet pan, slathered them with the chive-flecked lime butter, and stabbed them with toothpicks before finishing with flaky sea salt, a splash of lime, and additional chives. Kissed by the hot corn, the lime-infused butter slowly melted through the crevices of the crispy caramelized kernels, puddling underneath for easy dipping and swiping. While the lime countered the rich buttery fat with subtle bright acidity, the snipped chives and salt provided fresh grassy crunch. Dip. Swipe. Repeat.
