Index to ChefAl's Articles & Contributions
We decided to put in a page for ChefAl, since he is contributing so frequently to our Sneaky Kitchen. Let me introduce him. First the pictures:
Chef Al was a contributor and one of the mainstays of the Bites of Asia recipe site, a very successful, beautiful and comprehensive website until it mysteriously disappeared one day. I contributed to that site also and that's how we met.
He was part owner and producer of the Great World Chefs site, a colorful, delicious, and even moving experience, unfortunately no longer online.
Let me warn you that ChefAl is liberal, often sarcastic, irreverent, even adolescent (maybe it's a guy thing) and I can only print about half of what he sends me, this being a family site and all. He also knows bunches more about cooking than I will ever hope to know. So when you read his recipes and instructions for doing things, pay attention.
He's truly an expert on sushi (yeech!), and things like gravlax and tapas and all sorts of complicated foodstuffs I'll probably never attempt. He also makes food into art forms, and finds really great photography to jazz up his site. Beside him, I'm more of a plain (but healthy, never-the-less) family cook (and definitely not a photographer! See Snapshots...) This is a professional at work, readers. A wiseacre professional, true, but an expert through and through, even if he does think that zucchinis are only good for fodder (just try my Zucchini Delight Muffins and retain that opinion, Chef Al. I double dare you!).
Here's some history from the horse's mouth:
(Note from Bess: No wonder you're good! Alice Waters??? Unbelievably great move and fantastic luck.)
(Note #2 from Bess: Play pool too? I haven't for about nine years but give me 3 or 4 weeks of practice and I'll take you on and beat the stuffing out of you. Betcha!)
Note #3 from Bess: What, no zucchini? Veggies, Chef Al, veggies!!!
Note: I have lost touch with ChefAl. He had severe health problems and I hope for the best.
