A Tease, a Taste, and a Trip Home

Michele and I are traveling to New York State to see my family, including my mom Pauline (you may remember her from such video recipes as "Key Lime Pie").

As usual I'll try and post from the road, and hopefully share a few photos (videos?) of what
ever family feasts ensue.

These photos are a tease to some video recipes I plan on filming when I get back to San Francisco. These were taken last night during a dinner with cousin Tony and Nora (you may remember them from such posts as "The "Found on Foodbuzz" 24-Item Tasting Menu").

Pictured here (at night with annoying flash lighting): a new salmon technique I think I've perfected, salmon filet tied with salmon belly; whole-wheat flatbread; and individual apple "tart tartin" with ginger snap crust.

Finally, a little taste of something many of you have asked for… written recipes!!!

Thanks to a new venture by a loyal viewer, we could soon have transcripts for all my original recipe videos. I'm not sure exactly how they will be distributed yet, but stay tuned for details to follow! Enjoy!

Have a great trip, and even though you haven't left, I'm already anxious for you to return and share these recipes!

The transcript is a great addition, and I think you are really on top of your site by constantly making changes to improve it. We, your visitors, are the big winners for all your hard work and effort to improve our lives. Now, if "someone" would just "discover" you and add you to the lineup on TV cooking for the masses, you could become rich and famous! I hope it happens for you, soon. You deserve it!

Your success enables more to deliciously dine, so
In two-thousand and nine may "your stars" all align!

Happy New Year, Chef John, et al.

Hey Chef,

The transcript is Beautiful... I so like the conversational style and your humor preserved in it. This felt very different from the antiseptic instructions thst go by the name of 'recipe'.

And with somebody else doing it for you, we are also reasonably insured against you cooking your own flavor of English! (just kidding!)

Wish you and Michele a happy and prosperous (really) new year!
