New on the Membership Site for November

November 30th, 2011

Let's just say I had way too much fun creating some of the new things we've added to the cooking site. Here's a quick rundown; Basic Pates, Salmon & Fish Terrines, Rare Ahi Tuna Steak, The Black Sheep's Cocido (a Spanish "Cassoulet"), Turkey for One or Two (cooking a breast), Turkey Thighs, an "Adult" Cranberry Sauce, and Pureed Cauliflower!
Basic Pate                                                          Salmon Terrine

Rare Ahi Tuna Steaks                                              A Black Sheep Cocido

Turkey for One or Two                                                          Turkey Thighs

"Adult" Cranberry Sauce                                                 Pureed Cauliflower

And last but not least we added a 13 part mini cooking class called "Vacation Cooking on the San Juan Islands" where we rented a house and cooked every meal the entire week, and still had plenty of time to chase killer whales, eagles, baby fox and other wildlife all over the island. (You can see some of Diana's photos on Diana's Photo Album page. )

And much more coming in December! Keep up with what's new at the Current Content page.

Thanks, Rick

Video Cooking Stories!

November 12, 2011

"So I gave one of your Video Cookbooks to each of my friends and told them we were having a Black Sheep reunion party! Then I said you're making the Black Sheep Salad Dressing, you're making such and such and on and on and we had the greatest "pot Luck" with each person making something from the video!"

"I love your DVD and I make many things, Paella, my family loves the Paella. We even make your "Chef's Salt" from scratch!"

"I tried your new Aioli (Rapido) that you have on the members site and I love it, it's so quick and easy!"

Thanks for sharing your stories!

Duck Dinner!

November 11, 2011 (11/11/11)

Our second "Pop Up" dinner was held at Nieuport 17 last night and again the support and participation was truly overwhelming! I had such a great time, not just cooking and putting out some of my all time favorite dishes, (Duck Pate, Confit of Duck Salad, Duck Breast with the Sangria Berry Sauce and Profiteroles with Chocolate Sauce) but also seeing so many former Black Sheep Bistro customers.

Highlights included both what you were up to and what you like to do in the future (more about this in a later post.) Thank you!
