2010 Happy New Years!!!!

Good Afternoon Friends & Family,

Keeping this short - be sure to wright out your intentions for the New Year. Let's face it . . 2009 has been one hell of a challenge for all. The possibilities are endless for 2010 and certain to be better - right?

My intentions for this new year are for ChileCo to expand it's profit margins (ok - maybe create a profit margin first), Successful acquire financing for the organic product line and on a personal level - take sometime for myself. All to often in this chaotic world it's easy to lose yourself in the day to day responsibilities of living. This new year I will travel, I will spend time with family and yes - I will make another go at a relationship. Till the New Year - I wish you joyful celebrations and renewed hope. Let's make a difference in 2010!

with Culinary Blessings,

Chef Scotty

Here we go . . gettin warmed up!

Ok - so I can't find spellcheck yet . . . I've had my coffee and plan to conquer the catering world today.  The New Year is upon us with one day to go.  What do you have planned?  I myself will write out my intentions for 2010 and perhaps bury them deep within the vineyards of Temecula (not much of a choice her on location as we have a party to cater for 200 people at Wiens Winery!).

What might be the menu?  Well let me tell you it's nothing over the top but we're going to start of nice a slow with a Maine Lobster Bisque Sip, a little forked avocado & Alaskan Snow Crab nestled on some delicatable sweetcorn & cilantro.  Next up . . the salad of Wild Rocket (arugula in other words) with fresh Proscuitto & Ossau Iraty Cheese politely dressed with a Champagne-Poached Pear Vinaigrette.  Spiced Pear Sorbet for the Intermezzo then a choice of Veal Picatta or Cedar Plank smoked Salmon and finishing up with an Off the Hook Cheesecake . . . music, vino, champagne & laughter will flow freely.  Should be a good time but I guess that will have to wait till later.  Ciao!

In the Beginning . . . .

But those words have such a lesser value without action.  And so it is - we begin the adventure of my very own scripture.  Why is this might you ask?  Well - partly due the whole business aspect in marketing my catering company (ChileCo) and supporting the launch of my organic product line (Chi Cuisine).  But most importantly to share a vision that courses through my veins.  I personally belief in making a difference in this kooky world through food - something that unites each and everyone of us.  Ofcourse there was that apparent fact that twitter and facebook limit my words and that is something I very much am in no shortage of (poor sentence fragment - huh?).  Perhaps a brief introduction is in order . . even if I am only speaking to myself.

I was born an Earth Day and raised in a podunk rural town in Wisconsin.  Infatuated with the outdoors and plants I soon discovered the euphoric sensations of herbs . . herbs transitioned to cooking and at the age of 21 I found myself enrolled at San Fransisco's (once great) California Culinary Academy.  Oh, there was quite a bit in between joining humanity & college . . but we have chapters of future blogging to cover that stuff!  Oh, well perhaps I should mention that by the age of 10 I firmly believed that my inherited destiny is/was/would be to save the very world we live in.  Mom even sent me to numerous psychologist's to try and figure out what in the hell was wrong with Scotty - afterall, what 10 year old is consumed with fixing the world . . you're usually just figuring out how to masturbate, experienced your first kiss or "earned" the privelege of mowing the lawn.  Obviously, the doctors were unsuccessful at deregulating my secular ambitions to heal the planet as this blog shall transcrib my continued quest and subsequently (hopefully) open the door for unknown possibilities that which might assist me (hence us) in co-creating a better world.  And so . . . the adventure begins.
