Hola!!

The red beans are on the stove along with the gumbo for tonights service and I have a twenty minute break before I have to get back in the kitchen so I thought I’d throw a post up real quick, as I’m really excited about our latest addition to the local, and you know me and excitement, I need to let it out….!

Readers, meet G.

NOLAchef-beer-night-broeders-artesanal-beers-argentina

Hola friends!

Quick and last minute note that tonight will be our last Beer Night with Broeders Artesnal here in Palermo.

But don’t worry!

It’s because we’re so close to opening the gastropub and we need to stock up on as much craft beer as possible!

The past year has been a blast working with brothers Marce and Ticol (aka Francisco) on Thursday nights. We experimented with countless fried chicken & biscuit recipes as well as sampled some of their interesting brews such as Golden Rosemary, Basil IPA and Pecan Stout.

Things are moving along over here on our side of Palermo!

It’s so interesting to see the process from start to finish.

So bare in the beginning. Then a complete fucking mess. Stripped to the bones and rebuilt with purpose and care. I’m so pumped to see the final product!!

Meet Marcelo aka Chelo. An Argentino that’s been working in the construction business for over 30 years.

We’re thrilled to have him on our team!

I actually first met Chelo at Mexican Pop-Up a couple of years back and he’d sit at the counter top of the open kitchen and sip whisky on the rocks while we talked about our shared obsession over Led Zeppelin.

NOLA breakfast sammie & cheesy grits

NOLAchef-new-orleans-bacon-crab-bacon-sandwich

I was in charge of the kitchen on my last trip back home to New Orleans.

This was the first for me as that’s generally Dad’s territory.

I did the shopping, prep, cooking, cleaning, todo.

Every time I went to the grocery I came back with crab meat, crawfish tales, shrimp, catfish, I just couldn’t get enough of the selection and low prices!

One day sister asked if I would make breakfast. She’s older. Intimidating at times. She just published a book. How could I say no?!!

I went all out.
