Executive Chef Rudi Sodamin of Holland America Cruise Line’s Coconutty Blondies

Having just returned from a short repositioning cruise from Vancouver B.C to San Diego, I wanted to share a special creation from Executive Chef Rudy Sodamin of Holland America Cruise Lines. Chef oversees everything food on Holland America, and it’s no small feat. The kitchen crew prepares enormous amounts of food, and quality is number one on everyone’s mind. How about these numbers for weekly preparation. 8500 lbs of meat and meat products, 4000 lbs of poultry, 2000 lbs of fish. You get the idea, it does take a highly trained army of dedicated crew members to make all of this happen for the guests. So with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought a sweet treat made with coconut and Macadamia nuts would be fun, interesting and delicious too, especially for those who may not find pumpkin pie at [...]

Sugar Cookie From Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill Kentucky

When in the Lexington Kentucky area plan a visit to  Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in Harrodsburg, Kentucky only 26 miles from Lexington. As the largest restored Shaker community on 2900 acres of farmland and 34 restored 19th-century buildings, if you want to learn about this interesting way of life that has all but disappeared, you must visit.  Climb aboard the horse drawn carriage and  take a short ride through the village. Or wait until dark for guided walk through the town.  Believe me even with a lantern in your hand it raises the hair on your neck when voices come out of the candle lit houses (by actors reading journals from the 1800s)  or run into the streets in costume shouting to the unseen. Shakers, disciples of  Mother Ann Lee who renounced the sinful outside world, shared  work and [...]

Most Luxurious Honey Pecan Pie Uses Bourbon Vanilla

Rich and full of toasted Bourbon vanilla taste, this is perfect pie. Credit: Kurt Winner Found this most luxurious Honey Pecan Pie in a very old cookbook by farmers’ wives. It was said to be a State Fair winner. Rich and dense, make sure to use light corn syrup or it will be too sweet. The tricks are: beating the eggs for 5 minutes before adding to filling, using the bourbon vanilla aged in bourbon barrels in Kentucky from Bourbon Barrel Foods. Also I blast the weighted and fork-pricked  empty pie shell  at 425 degrees for 5-8 minutes, before adding filling and baking, to harden off the crust to prevent a soggy bottom, especially a homemade crust. You have to make a pie shell rim protector out of foil to keep from darkening  and burning the edges while the center [...]
