Beats and Eats (general)

People don't know or forgot how much race played a factor in the Celtics - Lakers Rivalry in the 80's. What is even more interesting is how much racism affected the African American players on both teams, against each other!

 

Nobody knows these facts better than the players who were on the court during that epic 7 game series in 1984 and 85. Two NBA Legends, and pivotal contributors to their respective teams, Michael Cooper & Cedric Maxwell, tell stories you'll never forget (and def never heard.

 

The best part is, Ty an I just leave Max and Coop to BS on the phone, recorded it (with their permission, of course) and uploaded it. The hatred between the C's and Showtime was well known through out sports and pop culture back in the 80s.  The hatred didn't stop with Cooper or Cornbread either. 

 

Today's phone conversation podcast is the first time since 1985 that these two iconic players last spoke. Oh yea, the hate was real. So, usually we are sipping vodka martinis but today, this is a coffee type conversation and you get to be a fly on the wall for it. 

 

Enjoy.

The Virtual Lounge is open... Nick Gelso here. Our long-time listeners may remember that Beats and Eats started as a celebrity musician podcast (the "beats") and a celebrity chef podcast (the "eats"). With the popularity of our episode with Hell's Kitchen Chef Chad, we decided to continue to venture back into the foodie realms by meeting other former HK15 chefs.

Beats and Eats has a proud tradition of celebrating fine food and the chefs that create it. We are proud to say that we were even nominated for a national Stitcher/Deezer award for Best Food and Wine Podcast of 2013. We lost to Alton Brown- I can honestly say that we are not embarrassed to tell people we lost to the celebrity chef.

As with any show or concept, over time it's personality evolves. Though we still talk food on occasion, "BNE" has really ventured into more of the celebrity interviews and trending topics genres. In 2015, we partnered up with the ECP Charters, celebrity vacation, The 80's Cruise and, thus our subjects dove even deeper into the retro, celebrity interview genre. We will still be bringing you the best in current and retro guests but, we do intend to bring you the occasional chef again as well.

Anyway, today we venture back into the "virtual kitchen" in a fashion reminiscent of our show topics from 2012-13. We welcome Hell's Kitchen Season 15 Chef, Hassan (follow on Facebook here or Twitter here).

Chef Hassan opens up about his experience on HK, his early dismissal (you may be surprised by his reaction and his current projects. Outspoken as ever, Hassan also strongly defends Chef Frank from HK15- you won't want to miss this!

As usual, Ty Ray asks the tough questions as he requests Chef Hassan's opinions on fellow contestants and how contestants are portrayed by shows such as Hell's Kitchen.

The trio also discuss the renaissance of the dining scene is Hassan's home city of Detroit.

If you're a Hell's Kitchen or Celebrity Chef Junkie, this truly is the episode for you.

You may notice the same last name as yours truly... well, Chad and I are related and, in this interview, we give you an insight into my past. As usual, Ty Ray asks the tough questions as he requests Chef Chad's opinions on fellow contestants, Chef Gordon Ramsay, the style of cooking and chef behaviors inspired by shows such as Hell's Kitchen.

We even ask Chad his opinions on certain controversial contestants from season 15 (Jackie?) and whether or not the show is completely legit. Listen below to find out what Chef Chad says.

If you're a Hell's Kitchen or Celebrity Chef Junkie, this truly is the episode for you. If not, listen anyway, you will get a few laughs (as usual) by Ty and Nick's sarcastic whit.

This past week the nominees for the 2016 Academy Awards sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry. Oscar snubs for STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, CONCUSSION, BEASTS OF NO NATION and CREED snowballed into the Motion Picture Academy being called out for its institutional racism
 
For the second year in a row, the major acting and Best Picture categories were bereft of nominees of color. The controversy elicited calls for a boycott from: Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, Spike Lee and Micheal Moore, for Host Chris Rock to step down and the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite to be on the minds of Hollywood.
 
Each of the snubs had a specific reason for happening that had more to do with the Oscars being SoOld than being SoWhite. 
***
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON was a great film that was a box office success. It is however a younger skewing film that was nominated in the Best Screenplay Race. Hip movies often find themselves in that race instead of the Best Picture race. It looked doubly bad that both of the screenwriters nominated happened to be white adding an insult to injury.
***
CONCUSSION starred Will Smith and many saw him as Leonardo DiCaprio's chief competition for Beat Actor. The movie failed to resonate with voters or an audience. Smith came out looking like he was trying too hard for the statue and Old Hollywood hates that. His wife being the first person to call for boycott does Smith no favors in the future
***
BEASTS OF NO NATION and actor Idris Elba were early buzz candidates for Oscar Gold. It is a terrific performance by an up and coming star in a gritty important movie that was done in by release format. It was released day and date with Netflix and theaters. This streaming release method does not allow for buzz to build and is against the Hollywood model we have in place. It was roo much ro overcome in the end.
***
CREED was one of the films of the year with a hot young star-Micheal B. Jordan and director-Ryan Coogler but was never going to be a Best Picture nominee. The Academy loves longevity and has chosen to make the story about Stallone. He is the front runner and one of the films biggest surprises. It is a great performace by a Legend that overshadowed the young bucks.
***
In each of these cases, the snub had more to do with age than race. #OscarsSoOld was the hashtag that should have led this debate not #OscarsSoWhite.
-
Editor's Note
In a move this week in answer to the controversy, the Board of Governors for the Academy has made some widespread changes to new member policy in an attempt to bring a more diverse member pool. It is also working to clean out members who may still have voting rights but are not as active in the industry. This is a direct attmempt to bring in more color but also more importantly younger blood.

One cold morning on January 22, 1959 the belly of the Susquehanna River broke into the Knox mine, trapping 81 men underground. The cave-in causes a giant, 150ft whirlpool to form in the ice laden river above, flooding the mines below. With all known exits cut off miners scramble to find an alternative route out and escape a cold, dark, death. On the surface rescue teams unsuccessfully attempt to plug the breach by launching train cars into the massive swirling vortex, only to witness them swallowed into the mines below.

In the wake of this tragic spectacle, the obvious question became: How could this have happened?

The drama continues through the subsequent hearings as investigators try to place blame and responsibility while a community struggles to rebuild its regional economy that the flooded mines destroyed.

Knox Mine Disaster examines this coal mining tragedy that occurred in the anthracite region of northeastern Pennsylvania and sheds light into the life of the hard coal miner.  This film showcases survival through adversity -- the hope, faith, and courage needed to fight your way out of a dreadful situation.

The Project has been accepted into the International Documentary Association's fiscal sponsorship program.  The IDA is a 501(c)(3) public charity and their sponsorship allows the filmmakers of the Knox Mine Disaster to pursue tax deductible grants and donations.

The attached image is a limited edition poster drawn by artist Ben Mackey.  It is a collage of some of the charcoal style illustrations that will appear in the film.  The poster along with “Official Backer” DVDs and Blu Rays are just some of the perks being released in conjunction with an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.  The filmmakers are looking to raise $60,000 to finish the film and have it on the big screen by the fall of 2016.

The virtual lounge is open and today, actress Lydia Cornell takes over for the Beats and Eats boys. Joining Lydia is yours truly, Nick Gelso.

When Lydia informed me that celebrity Chef Jason Roberts would be joining us, I was tickled. After speaking with Jason on the show, I was quite taken back by the amount of similarities between our stories. Chef Jas is a great success story and he's using his success to help others become HEALTHY foodies. Chef is not just focusing on foodies either,  Jas has made it a mission to promote healthy living in the way foods are grown, handled, etc. Roberts is focusing on the environment and even had a really interesting take on how bees affect the quality of the food we eat as well. Organic? Of course we touch on that topic. Gluten Free? Yep, focus on that as well. If you're a health conscious foodie, this is the episode for you. Oh! And Lydia shocks everyone as she is a closet chef, foodie! This show literally tickled me and has inspired me to consider launching a FOOD ONLY podcast- stay tuned! My mission: Convince Chef Jas to join me in this journey- the dude rocks!

Prior to Chef Jason, Cornell and Gelso touch on everything from depression to NASA to SNL40 to Brian Williams' current mess- no exaggerations here (that was low- lol).

This is one of my favorite episodes in a long time and I hope fans of Beats and Eats (and Lydia Cornell) share Lyd's and my enthusiasm! If you'd like to become a guest on the Lydia Cornell Show, simply email mailbag@beatsandeats.net. We are currently taking emails from every-day-people with not-so-every-day stories. Shoot us an email with your story. We will get back to you either way. Lydia responds to all of her fans. I respond to everyone- fan or not (lol)... I'm just looking to meet new peeps.

Enjoy the show.

It's a Holiday Edition of Beats & Eats.

On this Christmas Eve, Nick Gelso travels to Brookline for a Holiday tour of The Washington Square Tavern. This is a "return visit" of sorts, as Gelso visited with The Tavern back in November, talking with BNE2, Chef Barret about his POPUP dinner. The POPUP was a resounding success and today, we speak with the Tavern's Executive Chef Kevin Des Chenes.

In addition to his work at this great Gastro Eatery, Chef Kevin has been making waves all over the Celebrity Chef circuit with his appearances on, Food Network's Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell and The Celebrity Stage at The Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival. Surrounding all of Kevin's recent success, is his great passion and devotion to charity. It's always been quite impactful to me that the culinary community always makes a priority to give back to those who are suffering or less fortunate. As you'll hear in today's episode of Beats and Eats, Kevin's current charity is one that is very close to mine and Ty's heart, Michelle's Place for Breast Cancer Research and Awareness. Our association coincides with Chef Kevin's via Gillian Larson, and her Reality Rally Charity weekend in Temecula, California. Chef Kev explains why charity is so important to him and why he's working so hard to raise funds for Reality Rally/Michelle's Place.

Additionally, we speak about the Holiday Season at Washington Square Tavern in Brookline. Chef Kevin talks about the great things happening at the Tavern on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and, of course, New Years Eve.

Lastly, we spend a portion of time discussing the restaurant industry, the US Foods - Sysco merger, and how it will impact the independent operators, and general best practices in the BOH of a well-established, bustling Gastro Tavern in Boston.

The second half of this Podcast Double-Dip will air on Tuesday, as Nick Gelso joined Brian's Profitcast Podcast for a lengthy interview on podcast consultation, tips and laughs.

CLNS Radio & Beats and Eats hosted the Global Day of Discovery, in June. Emcee of the  LIVE NBA Draft Party, to celebrate Day of Discovery at Marriott Renaissance. Renaissance and Stitcher hired Ty Ray and Nick Gelso to emcee their week-long festivities at their Waterfront Property, in the Seaport District of Boston.

The festivities were a major success as Celtics fans filed in to the Renaissance Capice lounge by the dozens. What an interesting night, witnessing a variety of business travelers, tourists, corporate guests and sports fans, proudly dawning their Celtics jerseys.

The event at Waterfront made it apparent that people love consuming podcasts, yet a sense of curiousity still exists in the production elements. Having hosted their live podcast at the Marriott event, people were entertained but also educated on the fact that podcasting, much like terrestrial radio's live-remote events at businesses, sports bars and even fine dining restaurants, boutique gift shops... podcasting via Beats and Eats/CLNS Radio is more affordable, yet packs more punch in a style where endorsements actually mean something!

As we are moving into the 2014-15 entertainment and professional sports seasons, we are now accepting FREE CLIENT CONSULTS to discuss and customize your next event!

In this episode of Beats and Eats, CLNS Radio reporter, Cory Prescott sat down for an in-depth conversation, with Ty Ray, on how CLNS/BNE went from an amateur sports blog, to a full time, nationally recognized sports and entertainment media companies.

Ty Ray also goes deep into his past ventures, and how his relationship with Nick Gelso and CLNS blossomed from an on-air personality, to Program Director, to co-owner and eventually, co-founder of the entertainment podcast network, Beats and Eats.

The Virtual Lounge is open today with a very interesting and hilarious guest.

Today, Ty Ray and Nick Gelso dive into the world of social media. It's fascinating that many celebrities start their careers by becoming social media creators, film makers and personalities.

Today's guest is a 20 year old Vine and YouTube creator. Nick stumbled across Joey Salads on the Vine App and has been hooked since. Following in the style of Jack Ass and Punked, Salads has become a well known brand with his "bashin' videos," pranks and torturing his family, friends and strangers alike.

With his following in the millions (literally), this young social media celebrity defines how people get noticed and transition to name-brands in the cluttered world of social media.

Jerry is now hosting his very own podcast, Bad 4 Business. Ferarra discusses the challenges of podcasting, his dreams of becoming a sports radio host and his future plans for Bad 4 Business.

The two also talk a lot of NBA, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and LeBron James.

While Spencer was in the Lounge, we also discussed his current project, USA Network's Satisfaction. Garrett also discusses season 3 of House of Cards.

In the second half of the show, the boys check in with author, Wendy Parmley. Wendy authored the book, Hope After Suicide: One Woman's Journey from Darkness to Light. After her mother took her own life, Parmley learned firsthand the heartache, despair, and loneliness that accompanies suicide loss. Reinvent your definition of saved, perfect, and forgiveness as you read this true narrative of a woman opening her heart years after her mother's suicide and learn how to overcome any loss in your own life*.

Though episode 78 of Beats and Eats takes a rather serious tone, Ty and Nick still keep things rather light as Shatner, Star Trek, and much more creep into the conversation with Spencer Garrett.

It's been a tough week in the entertainment industry, losing Williams and Lauran Bacall. Ray and Gelso celebrate both legends' lives and yet keep it light. So, on Thirsty Thursday, sit back with a gin martini (extra dry) and listen to a Hollywood icon celebrate the life of 2 passed on Hollywood legends.

Keep the 'Virtual Lounge' open SUPPORT BEATS & EATS!

The "virtual lounge" is open and today we are crossing over to our partner-network, CLNS Radio, for reactions from around the sports world on LeBron James' leaving the Miami Heat, to head back home to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Nick Gelso takes the lead on this podcast simulcast from the CLNS Radio airwaves. Over the course of the last 11 months, Beats & Eats has served as a 'playground' of sorts for Ty Ray and Nick Gelso to escape their lives as professional sports broadcasters. It is not usually on our weekly agenda to review any sports news, unless it strongly impacts the pop-culture, entertainment world.
 
Certainly, Friday's news that LeBron James was headed back to his home-team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, dominated CNN, ESPN, NBC, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Seth Myers and our good pal, Jimmy Fallon. Being Ty and Gelso are constantly responding to mailbag entries, requesting more information on our sports background, we felt it appropriate to expose the Beats & Eats audience to a taste of the coverage model at the frequently mentioned, CLNS Radio.
 
Though Ty Ray was off on assignment, you do get to hear Gelso, as he plays analyst, along side Boston Celtics Locker Room Reporter, Jared Weiss and, NBA Insider, Calvin Chamberlain.
 
This proved to be an amusing, and informative 90 minutes, as the CLNS Radio call-lines were FLOODED the entire time.
 
So sit back, grab your cold beer, popcorn and throw on your LeBron jersey, as Gelso takes the B&E listeners into the other side of Gelso and Ray's entertainment world.
 
Contact Beats & Eats | CLNS Radio for your next LIVE event!

 

ORIGINAL SHOW POST FROM CLNS RADIO: 

LeBron James announced he is leaving the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavs, so CLNS Radio is bringing you a special broadcast at 5 pm ET to hear from the fans and talk to Real GM NBA Insider Shams Charania.

 The Garden Report's Jared Weiss and CLNS Radio's Nick Gelso take your calls and discuss the crazy day in the NBA Friday, talking about Chris Bosh and Chandler Parsons to the Houston Rockets, Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers and maybe even Kevin Love to the Cavs!

 With his unique background, which includes working for the US government and securing networks for Fortune 500 companies, Acey uses actual computer hacking concepts and scenarios that he's experience firsthand to construct the tale of Tanner Zane, a former cybercriminal turned upstanding Mormon.

While you're in the heart of July 4th traffic, why not learn how to protect yourself from cyber-hacking and/or identity theft; you'd be surprised who's stealing your information! Denver and the B&E boys also discuss a variety of online-topics, including Facebook's recent 'mood-altering' status campaign that shocked the world this week. Acey has a fascinating take on Facebook, social media and more.

COOKBOOK #7: CORK BAR & RESTAURANT RECIPE:

 

Grilled Peach Flatbread
Grilled Peach & Arugula Flatbread

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 prepared and grilled personal sized flatbreads
  • 4 fresh medium sized peaches, soft to the touch when purchasing
  • 2 cups of fresh arugula
  • 4 thin slices of prosciutto, crisped
  • 1 cup of fresh mozzarella, cut into strips
  • balsamic vinaigrette

DIRECTIONS:

While your flatbreads are grilling, peel and pit fresh peaches and cut in half. Brush with a bit of EVOO and sprinkle with a bit of salt & pepper. Grill on both sides until they develop grill marks. Remove peaches and flatbreads from grill and set aside. To crisp prosciutto, you can place aluminum foil on the hot grill and place slices on the foil, cover and grill until crisped, or you can bake in the oven until crisp. In a bowl, toss your arugula with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

To assemble: Cut your flatbreads into quarters. Brush the top with just a bit of EVOO. Top with strips of the fresh mozzarella. Cut your peaches into smaller pieces and layer on top of mozzarella. Crumble the prosciutto a bit and layer on top of the peaches and then top with the arugula.

Chef Chris Barcia and wife Beth gave Ty and I an opportunity to interview General Hospital legend, Kim McCullough. Beth and Chris own Palazzo 53 in the rejuvenated City of Pittston, PA.

Several months back I had the privilege of interviewing Councilman Michael Lombardo about the rebirth of Main St. USA and he mentioned Palazzo as one of the keys to Pittston, becoming a model for other small cities in North East PA (NEPA).


You may ask, what does the soap star have to do with Chef Barcia and Palazzo53? Well, Chris and Beth secured Kim's appearance on B&E. McCullough has many local ties to NEPA and will be conducting a Q&A, with local soap fans and industry professionals, at Palazzo 53 today (Saturday, May 17th).

Chef Chris Barcia and I go a long way back. Actually, Chris' wife Beth is still a very close friend. The couple owns Palazzo 53.

Several months back I had the privilege of interviewing Councilman Michael Lombardo about the rebirth of Main St. USA and he mentioned Palazzo as one of the keys to Pittston, becoming a model for other small cities in North East PA (NEPA).

Chris was my Executive Chef, at Gelpia'z Restaurant. He taught me how to "restaurant cook" and I credit him as the Exec during my restaurants most profitable years. Like a class reunion, Chris and I veer the subject-matter of today's interview to the key ingredients of success (beyond just good food and service) in today's
restaurant industry. Additionally, Chris teases our audience about Kimberly McCullough (Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake) of ABC's "General Hospital," who is our guest on Friday's episode of Beats and Eats. What does the soap star have to do with Chef Barcia and Palazzo53? Well, Chris and Beth secured Kim's appearance on B&E. McCullough has many local ties to NEPA and will be conducting a Q&A, with local soap fans and industry professionals, at Palazzo 53 on this Saturday, May 17th.

So sit back, learn a little about the life of a successful Executive Chef, while he explains his inspirations and influences behind his recipe submission; Crab Stuff Avocado (see below).

B&E Cookbook: Chef Jim Guasto | 279 Bar & Grill | Healthy Dining | Local Organic Gluten-Free Ingredients | Spring Recipe Feature | Restaurant Consultation

Beats & Eats Celebrity Chef Cookbook Entry II:

Chef Jim Guasto, 279 Bar & Grill

People often ask me, how did you get hooked up with Hell's Kitchen Chefs?

The answer is pretty simple.

My client and friend, Chef Jim Guasto, broke into the restaurant business, with his owning and operating the kitchen in swanky sports bar, and ultra gastro lounge, 279 Bar and Grille. Much like the John Taffers and Chef Gordon Ramsays of the world, Guasto transformed this freezer to fryer, sports bar, to what it is today; a space to chill out, in a relaxed environment, right at the bar next door....READ MORE ON GUASTO | 279 BAR

Recipe of the Week:

Sea Bass Entree 4-28-14

Grilled Mako over Mango Risotto with Tri Colored Bell Pepper and Pineapple Salsa. (Feel free to fix as needed. Rushed but didn't wanna screw u)

INGREDIENTS | DIRECTIONS:

  • 6-8oz filet of Mako (skinless) Salt and pepper to season. After grilling or saute, little lemon, butter and veg stock to finish in oven.
  • Mango Risotto...All our risotto is based off of a basic vegetable stock (mirepoix, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt, extra vegetable scraps, herbs). Risotto is gluten free, so I prefer to be vegan as well to suit customers.

For Risotto. 2cups Arborio rice, petite dice white onion, white pepper, white wine. Make onions translucent with a little olive oil, add Arborio, slightly toast, deglaze w white wine, season and keep adding stock to achieve texture desired.

For Mango Salsa. Add two labels of fresh mango juice and bring up exactly like stock. Fold in fresh cut mango. No cream.

For Pineapple Salsa. One fresh pineapple, one red bell pepper, one yellow bell pepper, one green bell pepper, small amount of very petite diced red onion, fresh pineapple juice, two dashes of sherry vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

For Plating. Place mango risotto in middle of plate, Mako on top, spoon desired amount of salsa. Preferably w slotted spoon and use salsa juice as desired

B&E Cookbook: Chef Gary Edwards | Fire and Ice | Healthy Dining | Local Organic Ingredients | Spring Recipe Feature

Cookbook Series: 1st Edition

For our 1st entry into our Cookbook Series, we welcome Chef Gary Edwards to the Virtual Lounge.

Chef Gary is a long-time friend of Nick Gelso, he has been a hallmark of the NEPA culinary industry for over 2 decades. Edwards' experience includes country clubs, resorts, hotels and now his own property, Fire and Ice on Toby Creek.

When not in the kitchen, Gary can often be seen running or riding his bike through the streets of the Kingston area; exercising and fitness has always been a big part of the chef's life. As you'll hear into today's B&E Bite, that passion for healthy living has followed Chef Gary into his menu planning at Fire and Ice.

In our 1st Cookbook Recipe, Chef Gary offers a savory, yet light, spring dish. His German inspired, Schnitzel Style Breaded Berkshire Pork Dish, has local ingredients all over the plate. The Berkshire Pork is sourced at a Northeast PA (NEPA) farm. Also locally, farm-raised are Gary's dairy and produce items.

This Schnitzel style, panko breaded (local) pork dish will give you the perfect meritage of rib hugging, savory, home-style cookin' with light, crisp, spring-like, produce features.

You won't leave Fire and Ice hungry with this spring-menu treat; nor will you find your day dragging behind you because of  some of the heavy basics featured in the dish. The only thing dragging out of Fire and Ice after a Chef Gary Edwards' meal, is time; you'll be wishing the day wouldn't end so you'd have time to eat some more.

See contact info below recipe for how to book your reservation, purchase your gift card OR follow Fire and Ice on social media.

Schnitzel Style Breaded Berkshire Pork Dish

Get a taste of “Fire and Ice on Toby Creek” when Chef Gary Edwards prepares a spring dish of  Schnitzel Style breaded Berkshire boneless pork topped with chiffonade spinach salad tossed with lime, Chipotle Shrimp, and Berkshire pork belly finished with mango patron puree.

B&E Bite: Chef Jack Godwin | Restaurant Community at Beaumont Inn

Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Jack Godwin, of the Beaumont Inn. Beats & Eats listeners may remember that Jack was our first "celebrity" chef to join Beats & Eats. Listeners also know that Beaumont and Beats & Eats seem to sing together as we launched our new podcast network at the same time Beaumont Inn was establishing their new dining estate in northeast PA.

Chef Jack is not just the saute chef at Beaumont, he is also very much invested in the property on the estate.

A little over a year later, I checked in with Chef, Beaumont Inn Historian, Grounds Manager and Fly Fishing instructor, Jack Godwin. Godwin and I discussed the next phase, in the second year from when the community first broke ground at Beaumont.
