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.
