  • Carpaccio

    Heres a dish thats simple and elegant. Widely adaptable to many proteins and accompaniments, its original preparation has, in a short time, earned it a place in culinary history for generations to come. The dish, based on a northern Italian “carne crudo” originated in Venice, Italy in 1950. After doctors recommended an Italian countess include raw meat in her diet, Giuseppe Cipriani of Harrys Bar created Carpaccio for her visit. Named after 16th century painter Vittore Carpaccio, known for his use of rich red tones, contrasted with white. This dish combines the necessary elements of fat, salt, and acid that compliment raw proteins. Following will be a traditional preparation, as…

  • Bacon Wrapped Dove

    Anything wrapped in bacon is good, right? The answer is a resounding “YES,”  but especially when it comes to dove. I’m willing to bet that most doves killed in the US get made into some form of jalapeno popper (not that there is anything wrong with that), but these little birds are so good in so many different ways! This recipe is how I cooked the last doves I had, and they were excellent! Add some butter, Worcestershire sauce, and a little seasoning and you have yourself the makings of a great meal! Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 20-30 min Oven Temp: 350 Ingredients: 6-8 dove breasts 3-4 strips…

  • Recipes: Fried Honey Buns

    We’ve talked about it for 2 weeks, so we decided it was time to put a marker down.  Here’s the recipe for the greatest breakfast snack of all time – fried Honey Buns. Credit goes to Josh Raggio of Raggio Custom Calls for bringing this culinary delight to our attention. It’s also important to note that these are not DEEP FRIED Honey Buns – that is a bit much! These are much healthier than those!* Ingredients: Box of Little Debbie Honey Buns Bacon Grease Directions: This ain’t rocket science, y’all. Get your bacon grease hot, add in the honey buns (unwrapped), cook for about 90 seconds per side.  Serve warm.…
