My Boy Enrico Palazzo (Eric Lorden) grabbed a couple of Pork Butts and Head Chef Jeremy at Passports rubbed em down with the love rub, they sat overnight in the love letting the rub marry up with the pork.

5:00AM 8/30/15 set up the smoker using the minion method.  Filled up the charcoal basket after placing four chucks of cherry in equal distances apart around the circle.  then took out the middle lump charcoal , got it going in the chimney and then once they were burning red I dumped them back into the center.  The idea is that the charcoal will slowly burn from the center outwards for a long low and slow session.

Every single thing that came out looked ridiculously good and over the top.

Add another awesome breakfast joint to Gloucester’s stacked line-up.  I gotta tell you I put Zeke’s in the top tier and rate it MUST VISIT.  Like I’d say it’s so good that YOU HAVE TO make it your next breakfast dining out experience.  No joke I put 100% of my dining experience critique reputation on the line saying you gotta go.  let me know what you think.

GOOD MORNING GLORIES BROUGHT TO YOU BY PLUM COVE GRIND!

Driving through Lanesville on my home from filming and the beautiful blue of ‘Flying Saucers’ caught my eye. I couldn’t resist taking a photo and circled back. Meredith Glaser, Plum Cove Grind proprietor, was just opening for the day and I couldn’t resist either her tempting blueberry oat scones. They were fantastic, chock full of blueberries and with a flaky texture, not at all glompy as is often the case with scones. Everything else on display looked very homemade and irresistibly delicious, too. I’ll definitely be back to sample more of Meredith’s yummy pastries.

Saved by microwave bacon…

When Sista Felicia told me she uses microwave bacon for stuff like a BLT or breakfast for the twins, not gonna lie I snubbed my nose. Really? Microwave bacon?? She swore to me that she wasn’t yankin’ my chain and I agreed to buy it and try it out!

Well now I’m obsessed. No fuss and muss with bacon just for a sandwich and Tyler can make it himself for breakfast!

Microwave bacon has changed a part of my life!

BIG Shout Out to Seaport Grille

As you know many of us celebrated our August 4th birthday at Seaport Grille!

There ended up being a few more of us than expected and the staff was amazing accommodating us!

When people have a great experience at restaurant very rarely do the managers receive good emails.

Why is it people always write about a bad experience.

I wrote a friendly note to the manager Lauren:

 
Hey Lauren,

I want to thank you for everything regarding the reservation.
I also need to praise your staff last night! We did indeed end up having over 20 people and Amber was so accommodating and made it all so seamless. Being the control freak I am, Amber was so calm and made it all work and didn’t even break a sweat.
The waiter we had, Justin, AMAZING! I also told him I was a control freak LOL and he was just so great. You would of never known he was waiting on 20 people.
He was so attentive and he was always right there making sure everyone had a drink and it ran so smooth. He was hilarious and fit in with our crazy group of people. Everyone kept saying what great service we had.
Thanks so much again,
Alicia

The Construction of A @SistaFelicia Mudiga Steak Sandwich Using The @STOKGrills Island Grill @CapeAnnFMkt

Sold Out Once Again- It was hilarious.  People walking by and get a whiff of the mudiga steaks on the grill and it’s like they were led by their nose to her spot.  If you’re cooking on nights like last night when you could go to The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market and get grub like this- You Crazy.

Note The Generous Amount Of Work Space The STOK Island Grill Affords Making It Perfect For The Farmer’s Market

OYSTERS ROCKEFELLER-TO-DIE-FOR AT PASSPORTS!

Eric Lorden, I am begging you, please add the Oysters Rockefeller to your regular menu!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oysters Rockerfeller Passports Restaurant ©Kim Smith 2015

Thursday night we attended Passports Sparkling Wine Dinner and it was out of this world delish. We Loved everything–the sparkling wine selections, especially the creamy Blanc de Blanc Brut Dargent from France–and each and everyone one of the dishes was fantastic. But if I had to choose a favorite of the favorites, I must say that Eric’s Oysters Rockefeller is sublime. Perhaps he’ll share his recipe–I am going to get right on that!

Oysters Rockefeller was created in 1899 by Jules Alcitore at the world renowned New Orleans restaurant Antoine’s. At that time there was a shortage of snails coming into America from Europe. Jules was looking for a substitute and he wanted the replacement to be local to avoid future problems in procuring the product.

My copy of Antoine’s cookbook does not include the recipe; to this day, it is still top secret.

The sesame encrusted diver scallops with jasmine rice was definitely an entree I’m inspired to try making at home.
