Chef Adriana’s Roman Artichokes Recipe

Screen Shot 2019-07-16 at 11.07.53 AM.png

Fresh artichokes are a delicious and often underrated food. Its preparation is simple and easy to make, making it a great healthy choice. Our October Chef of the Month, Adriana, has shared with us her Roman Artichokes Recipe. Find it below!

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 4 Baby or 2 medium sized artichokes
  • 2 Tablespoons of white wine (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons of chopped mint
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 2 Lemons
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon into a medium size salad bowl and set aside.
  2. Remove the outer layers of your artichokes until you start to see the leaves turn yellow.
  3. Discard the leaves and soak your artichokes in the lemon water.
  4. One by one, remove each artichoke from the water and cut the very top green part of it off, as it is not edible.
  5. Next, you want to skin the stem and cut off any green pieces left around the base of your artichoke (heart). At this point they should look more or less like a lollipop (see photo).
  6. You will then place your cleaned artichokes in a pot with enough water to cover them, along with the olive oil, the juice of the other lemon, the 2 peeled garlic cloves, the wine and chopped mint. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Cover your pot with aluminum foil and cook the artichokes for at least 45 minutes. Check them by poking them in the heart with a fork so see if they are soft enough (they should be very soft).
  8. It might take up to 2 hours to cook depending on the size of the artichokes. Serve with a bit of the water you cooked them in. You can add a bit more olive oil and lemon when you serve them.

Tip: Try to find baby artichokes as they only take 45 minutes to cook and the choke is not spiky yet. The bigger artichokes have a spikier center that takes a very long time to cook (approx. 2 hours). You can see the video on how to peel an artichoke in my YouTube channel (Cooking with Adriana).

October 2019 Chef of the Month- Adriana Londono

As October rolls around, not only are we pumped for delicious fall recipes, but we’re so excited to introduce our October Chef of the Month- Adriana Londono! Chef Adriana was born in Colombia & now resides/works in sunny Los Angeles and Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico. She is a private, holistic chef that is constantly creating innovative, healthy and plant-based recipes. From Avocado Risotto to Avocado Chocolate Mousse, her creativity and passion for food is inspirational. Find her story below!

 

 

 

 

1. Where were you born?
Colombia

2. Where do you work and where are you based?
Los Angeles and Valle de Guadalupe (Mexico’s wine country). I am a holistic private chef.

3. What is your favorite kitchen tool in creating your masterpieces/dishes?
My tomato peeler. As a plant-based chef, there are so many vegetables to peel and the tomato peeler makes life quite easy.

4. What is your sharpest sense out of all the 5 senses?
Smell!

5. What advice would you offer for aspiring chefs?
Stick to your ideals when it comes to cooking. You want to be able to cook with the ingredients you love so that you can enjoy the process and offer your best creations.

6. What is one culinary tip every chef should know and perfect?
Pickling! Pickled vegetables compliment a dish very nicely, whether it is plant-based or not.

7. What does good food mean to you?
Healthy, holistic with fantastic flavor.

8. What features are important to you when selecting your chef outfit?
I am a girl, so I want to make sure my waist is highlighted and I also avoid white as I work a lot with beets, avocados and chocolate… hehe.

9. Favorite ingredient to work with?
I am obsessed now with cassava flour. It is an amazing substitute for wheat flour as it has some elasticity which is similar to gluten. I bake with it, make pizza crusts, tortillas, cookies, etc.

10. Favorite City to dine out in?
Los Angeles. Amazing plant-based restaurants there: Café gratitude, Plant food + Wine, Crossroads and Gracias Madre.

11. Best Dish you have ever made?
Mmm… that is a hard one, but the one that surprised me the most and is high up on my list is avocado risotto.

12. What do you like to eat most often on your days off?
Vegan pizza!

13. Person you would most like to cook for?
My boyfriend- he is my biggest fan and supporter.

14. What made you decide to become a chef?
At 28 I was diagnosed with a chronic illness called Meniere’s disease. Due to that, I couldn’t go out to restaurants anymore as I had to follow a low sodium diet and since I loved to eat amazing food, I started to cook it for myself and got really good at it.
I never had training of any sort but having lived in Italy and France helped me develop a sophisticated palette.

5 years ago, I decided to give plant-based cooking a chance and I am so enamored by it. I have so much more fun with it than I ever did using animal products. I feel challenged every day and feel very satisfied when I create new dishes that feel, taste and are real food without having to have hurt any animal in the process.

The world of plants is so vast and exciting; I am now learning to incorporate into my dishes many edible flowers, a succulent plant here in Mexico called Salicornia, vegan cheeses and butters, microgreens of all sorts and all kinds of non-gluten flours. Cooking has never been more fun!

Does Your Chef Footwear Stand the Heat?

 

070_071.png

Chefs, cooks and restaurant professionals are expected to work long hours & shifts on their feet. So, while chefs are whipping up delicious meals, their feet are taking plenty of heat.

What is the best remedy to prevent an aching foot? How can one be prepared to be comfortable and not feel the burn on their heels? Here at ChefUniforms, we have created a guide to help you find your Chef Shoes soul mate, and while your food is on fire, your feet don’t have to be! 

What to Look For

It’s important to remember that different shoes have different purposes. A restaurant professional that is often by water (for example, roles that require dish-washing) may need a slip resistant shoe, while the professional that works with heavy appliances may need a pair with additional protection (think toe caps). Keep in mind to always comply with safety regulations in order to stay as safe as possible in the kitchen.

Different Types of Shoes for Chefs

Sneakers/ Athletic Footwear

Athletic footwear are often designed for specific activities such as walking, jogging and running. Running shoes can be useful for the professional who is constantly moving around. A running shoe has shock absorption that protects the front of your feet which can ease up on individuals standing on a hard floor. If you choose athletic footwear, make sure that they comply with your building’s/restaurant’s requirements and guidelines. Different places may have rules about sneakers being slip resistant or certain rules about laces.

The New Balance Black 608v5  that is available for both men and women features a foam collar, a heel with cushioning and compression resistance and aids in absorbing impact. These shoes are also slip resistant!

1.PNG

Clogs

Clogs can be a popular choice due to their arch and heel support. The shoes usually feature thick soles for support that can absorb pressure from standing on a hard floor. In some instances, this may be a good fit when standing on your feet long periods of time. Clogs are also lightweight and comfortable.

The Klogs Boca Unisex Closed Back Clogs offer a molded toe grip that allow for better stability. They are slip resistant and lightweight!

2.PNG

Crocs

Crocs usually include an enclosed toe design that can protect chef’s feet from hazardous objects that can be found in the restaurant and in the workplace. Easy to wear, easy to clean and long-lasting, the Croc is often a favorite among chefs.

The Crocs™ Bistro Unisex Closed Toe Clogs feature a heel strap, an enclosed toe design and an orthodontic foot bed. These shoes are also slip resistant and waterproof- perfect for the kitchen!

3.PNG

 

Everyone’s role in the restaurant industry is different, and that’s why at ChefUniforms, we like to present variety for our customers. Whether your main role requires slip resistant shoes, or a well ventilated pair- we want to make sure you are ready to look and feel your best always!

September 2019 Chef of the Month- Abyssinia Campbell

chef uniforms 2

We’re happy to introduce our September 2019 Chef of the Month- Abyssinia Campbell! Chef Abyssinia was born in New York, grew up in Florida and now works and resides in New York. She is the proud owner of Chef Abyssinia LLC , a Personal Chef & Catering company that provides services to New York, New Jersey, Hamptons and parts of Connecticut! As a child, Chef Abyssinia has always enjoyed cooking and she now views it as her own form of art. Read her story below!

 

1. Where were you born?
I was born in New Rochelle and partly raised in Mount Vernon, New York until I moved to Florida where I attended middle school, high school & college.

2. Where do you work and where are you based?
I am the owner of Chef Abyssinia LLC a Personal Chef & Catering company business based in New York. My team & I provide services to New York, New Jersey, Hamptons & parts of Connecticut. We also travel, most frequently to Florida. The services that we offer are catered events of all sizes, private dining experiences, meal prep & cooking classes!

3. What is your favorite kitchen tool in creating your masterpieces/dishes?
My favorite kitchen tool has got to be my taste buds, without them I wouldn’t be able to create these amazingly tasty dishes. Following my taste buds, I would say my hands, they do all the work.

4. What is your sharpest sense out of all the 5 senses?
I would say that my sharpest sense out of all five senses would be my taste, I can taste a dish and name most of the ingredients that it consists of.

5. What advice would you offer for aspiring chefs?
My advice to aspiring chefs is to remain humble and don’t stop learning. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and don’t give up because anything is possible.

6. What is one culinary tip every chef should know and perfect?
This is a tough question. One thing every chef should perfect is presentation- you want your dishes to look just as good as they taste.

7. What does good food mean to you?
Good food to me consists of quality ingredients & great flavor. It doesn’t matter how much it costs really, you can overpay for a crappy meal & underpay for a crappy meal, but when it’s good it’s good and that shows that value of the dish, not the $ signs in front of it.

8. What features are important to you when selecting your chef outfit?
When selecting a chef outfit, I like to look sleek, professional & most importantly feel comfortable. Safety is also another factor, something that will protect me from a burn but will not make me burn up in a hot kitchen.

9. Favorite ingredient to work with?
My favorite ingredient to work with are vegetables. You can do so much with them. From vegetables to herbs to fruit, all things that come from the earth. They add flavor, texture, color, aromatics, health benefits, you name it! That’s why you will always find them in my pantry. I had a client recently who hired me for a dinner party. One of the guests was an older gentleman. The first course was a full-on vegetable course. Everyone enjoyed it, the wife of the older gentleman came to me and said “Wow, that was good. My husband hates cauliflower, but he loved it!” One thing for sure, that’s an amazing feeling, but that goes to show how you can manipulate & master the fruit of the earth. I’m strongly considering becoming a vegan chef.

10. Favorite City to dine out in?
My favorite city to dine out in would have to be Manhattan, New York because there is a large diverse culture in the city. You can find a wide range of cuisines here in New York, no matter your budget, you will find a gem in the city if you look for it.

11. Best Dish you have ever made?
This is really hard to say because I am always making new dishes and I don’t always write them down, sometimes I just go with the flow of things and work with whatever ingredients I have on hand. As I am writing this, I am thinking of about 3 different dishes I made several months a part that I thought were extremely good. I’m going to go with one of the more recent dishes, Mediterranean roasted chicken with tri-color lentils & spiced butternut squash.

12. What you like to eat most often on your days off?
On my days off sometimes, I don’t even like to cook for myself, after being in the kitchen all week I don’t cook lavish meals for myself that often. I eat loads of fruits & vegetables. My favorite food is Caribbean food, I love Ackee & salt fish with sweet plantains & fried dumplings. I also love corn meal porridge for breakfast which is also Caribbean. I have a huge sweet tooth that I didn’t have growing up, now I crave pastries & fresh baked cookies all the time lol, it’s hard but I try to stay away from too many sweets.

14. What made you decide to become a chef?
I have been cooking since I was very young, I always liked it. I liked the idea of creating things in the kitchen. One of my favorite subjects in elementary school was art. I really enjoy being able to create & I feel like when I am cooking, that is when my creativity comes out. The plate is my canvas and with the ingredients I like to paint stories. In middle school & high school I was in a Culinary Arts program and that really paved the way for me and helped me to realize that I had a true passion in food & cooking. From there I went to Johnson & wales to study culinary arts & food service management, the rest is history!

Ingredients

  • 4-6lb fresh octopus
  • 4 cups water
  • ½ cup salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup Pickling Spice
  • 4 fresh lemons, juiced
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup green pea tendrils
  • 1 tbsp fried capers (recipe below)
  • Octopus marinade (recipe below)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Marinade Ingredients

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp all spice
  • 2 tbsp ground garlic
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp Aji Amarillo Powder
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp Chinese Five Spice

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

Fried Capers Ingredients

  • 10 capers
  • 1 cup olive oil

Directions 

  1.  Make a court bouillon by putting water, salt, sugar, pickling spice and lemon juice in a pot and setting it to boil.
  2.  Dip octopus tentacles and body in the boiling court bouillon 3 times, waiting 5 seconds between before submerging the entire thing.
  3.  Allow the octopus to cook for 45 minutes.
  4.  Meanwhile, prepare the marinade and the fried capers.
  5.  Once octopus has cooked, remove from the liquid and cool at room temperature.
  6.  Once cooled, slice tentacles in long thing strips and submerge them in the marinade.
  7.  Set aside in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Note: the rest of the octopus is edible and can be used in other cooking applications such as for a soup or even a fresh salad.
  8. Remove tentacles from the marinade and place them on a hot grill just long enough to get a nice char on each side. Note: be careful not to put too many tentacles on the grill at one time, as too much oil from the marinade could cause an oil fire on your grill.

Fried Capers Directions

  1.  Drain and pay dry with paper towels. Heat olive oil in a small, heavy-duty skillet over medium-high heat.
  2.  Add capers to oil and fry until they are crisp and appear to no longer be frying.
  3.  Remove the capers from oil using a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
  4.  Leave capers out at room temperature until ready to use in final plating.

Plating Instructions

Serve the charred octopus over a bed of green pea tendrils. Finish with a sprinkle of smoked paprika, crispy capers, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.
