Food Banks Need You!

At this time of the year, so many of us take the time to give thanks for the wonderful things that so many of us have in our lives. We may be thankful for our health, for our home, for the feast on our table, for our jobs. Those of us behind feel incredibly thankful this holiday season.

It is with that thankful spirit that we urge you to give to your local food banks. Many food banks are at all time lows in food inventory. In Los Angeles, Jackson Limousine Company conducted it's 21st annual "Turkey Dinner Giveaway" on Tuesday, November 25th. The organizer, Ed Jackson, apparently planned to give away about 5-8,000 turkeys. Last I heard they had over 10,000 people line up for blocks for those turkeys. I was shocked to hear in another news broadcast that ONE in EIGHT Americans are on the brink of hunger. In America? How can this be?

On a local news channel a journalist interviewed some of the people waiting in line. Those folks were you and me. Not the poor that we somehow imagine being very distant from our everyday lives. These were solidly "middle class" people whose lives have been upended with job loses, devastating health care costs, rising mortgage rates, and the increases in the cost of everyday living. One woman commented that a year ago she would never have imagined standing in that very line. What a difference a year makes. is dedicated to giving to our local food banks, and we would like to partner with you. Please post your commitment on this blog, and we will do everything in our power to match it. If you can give six cans, we will give six cans. Share your pictures with us, your experiences in volunteering at a local food bank or holiday dinner. For those of us with so much, the very best holiday gift we can give is that to help our neighbor, lend a helping hand, ease someone's burden. Even the smallest effort can reap the greatest reward. Thank you for your commitment to donating to your local food banks this holiday season.

Flavor Trends for 2009: Lavender

From my previous posts (November 16, November 19), I revealed that I am truly fascinated with food trends, and experimenting with new flavors. Recently, Mintel, the consumer, media and market research company, tallied the top food and flavor trends for 2009. Here are the top seven flavor trends for 2009:

1. Persimmon (featured in November 16th blog post)
2. Starfruit (featured in November 19th blog post)
3. Lavender
4. Cactus
5. Chimichurri
6. Peri-Peri
7. Masala

In this post, I spotlight the aromatic Lavender! I will continue to highlight each trend, with a recipe or two that I recommend. Please feel free to bookmark and/or follow this blog so you can get a great snapshot of all seven in the weeks to come. I also welcome any recipes that include Lavender, even homemade skincare recipes that feature lavender that you would love to share.

#3 Lavender: What is Lavender? What does it taste like?

(Picture from

Many of us have lavender growing in our gardens, and I know that I certainly love including lavender in my backyard to savor the wonderful scent! Lavender is used in a variety of ways, both fresh, dried and lavender oils. The chefs in the Provence region of France have been cooking with lavender for centuries. Lavender often brings a natural, yet elegant and sweetly floral flavor to a variety of cuisines.

(Picture of Dagoba Organic Chocolate Lavender Bar, from

One of the truly interesting food products that I found that contains lavender is the "Dagoba Organic Chocolate Bar". This chocolate bar contains dark chocolate, lavender and blueberries. It sounds completely divine, and the Dagoba website claims that it is "terrific with a glass of zinfandel". SOLD! They offer a box of 12 bars for $36.00. What amazing hostess gifts these bars would make with a lovely small dried lavender bouquet tied to the bar with some natural colored raffia! (hint, any of my holiday guests!)

The lavender recipe, and image, that follow were found on I found many truly interesting lavender recipes, including many with a Provence theme (with cornish game hens, and other fowl). I thought this one seemed so very versatile to make a unique and interesting holiday dessert truly special!

Starfruit is an excellent source of vitamin C, is low fat, and naturally sodium and cholesterol free.

Flavor Trends for 2009: Persimmon

I am always fascinated with food trends, and love to experiment with new foods, new flavors. I find that I get "stuck" with a set of foods and flavors that are familiar, easy, and comfortable. I recently read that Mintel, the consumer, media and market research company, tallied the top food and flavor trends for 2009. They list the top seven trends which include the following:

1. Persimmon
2. Starfruit
3. Lavender
4. Cactus
5. Chimichurri
6. Peri-Peri
7. Masala

Clearly, we are looking forward to exciting, dynamic, exotic flavors! After seeing this list, I immediately went online to find recipes and references to help me understand these flavors and foods, and am so excited to share that information with you! I will spotlight each trend, with a recipe or two that I recommend. Please feel free to bookmark and/or follow this blog so you can get a great snapshot of all seven in the weeks to come. I also welcome any recipes for persimmon that you would love to share.

#1 Persimmon: What is a persimmon, what does it taste like?

Persimmons are generally light yellow-orange to dark red-orange in color and vary in shape from round, to acorn-shaped to a more squat pumpkin shape. The taste of the persimmon is typically compared to that of an overly sweet apricot with a smooth, slippery texture.

There are two most common kinds of persimmons: The Fuyu, the kind you can eat right away, and the Hachiya, the kind you cannot! Persimmons not only have an exceptional flavor, they are also rich with important nutrients such as beta-carotene, Vitamin C and potassium!

Both of my recommended persimmon recipes are from These recipes would be fantastic for Holiday meals! I also want to experiment with persimmons in holiday tabletop displays, as persimmons are so gorgeous in hue, shape and texture and would make for an amazing organic centerpiece!

(how incredibly gorgeous for any special Holiday gathering!)

Persimmon Cranberry Sauce

Yield: Makes about 2 1/2 cups
Active time: 15 min
Total time: 15 min
Note: The bright, tender fruit of Fuyu persimmons mellows the intensity of cranberries while lending this sauce a beautiful jewel-like hue. Using Fuyus, which can be eaten hard or soft, removes the guesswork of finding ripe fruit.

• 3/4 lb fresh or frozen cranberries (3 1/2 cups)
• 1/4 cup dry red wine
• 2 tablespoons water
• 1/2 star anise or 1/4 teaspoon star-anise pieces
• 1/2 to 2/3 cup sugar
• 3 firm-ripe Fuyu persimmons (about 1 lb total), peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice

Bring cranberries, wine, water, star anise, 1/2 cup sugar, and a pinch of salt to a boil in a 2-quart heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Add more sugar, to taste (up to about 2 1/2 tablespoons), and discard star anise. Fold in persimmons.
Transfer to a bowl and serve at room temperature or chilled. Stir gently before serving.
Cooks' note: Cranberry sauce, without persimmons, can be made 4 days ahead and chilled, covered. Fold in persimmons before serving.

(This salad represents wonderful fall colors AND flavors!)

Salad of Fall Greens with Persimmons and Hazelnuts

Yield: Makes 10 to 12 servings

• 3/4 cup fresh tangerine juice
• 1 tablespoon grated tangerine peel
• 3/4 cup vegetable oil
• 2 tablespoons hazelnut oil or walnut oil
• 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 head escarole (about 11 ounces), torn into 2-inch pieces (about 12 cups)
• 1 large bunch watercress, stemmed (about 6 cups)
• 1 5-ounce bag mixed baby greens
• 2 Fuyu persimmon, peeled, halved, thinly sliced
• 1/2 cup hazelnuts, toasted, skin rubbed off

Boil tangerine juice and tangerine peel in heavy small saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Transfer to medium bowl. Whisk in next 5 ingredients. Season dressing with pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; chill. Rewhisk before using.)
Place all greens and half of persimmon slices in large bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat. Divide salad among plates. Top each with remaining persimmon slices and hazelnuts and serve.

Hot Holiday Trend: Small Portions, Luxurious Items

One of the holiday food trends that we have been following is to offer smaller portions of interesting and luxurious foods. This addresses a variety of needs for both host and guest. For the host, they can offer smaller portions for cost control, avoid food waste, and truly introduce themselves and their guests to a totally different cuisine experience. For the guest, they can try to still watch portion control over the holidays and sample a variety of different choices and find new cuisines.

Perfect options for this trend?

Have a tapas cocktail party! Tapas are a great way to have small portions of a variety of tastes, textures and new food items that your guests may never have tried before! You can serve fantastic wines with tapas, make sangria that soaks with fruit for days (and even create spritzers to lighten up the alchohol content!) and offer small plates to your guests to sample a variety of appetizer-sized entrees.

Have a cheese-tasting party! Here is the perfect reason to finally purchase some of the rare artisan cheeses you have been longing to try for a long time! In my family, we are cheese lovers, and my niece, Sophia, even has a great label for most of our favorite cheeses, "Stinky Cheeses". So, get a variety of "Stinky Cheeses", and some not-so "Stinky Cheeses" and provide interesting crackers, breads, tostini, even a wonderful variety of fruit spreads (like fig!), dried fruits and more to pair with the cheeses.

Have a "Just Desserts" party! This is a great opportunity to try some of the amazing artisan chocolate creations out there (I really want to try a Chipotle Chili Chocolate I recently read about!) dark chocolates, and chocolates with exotic flavors and spices. A little goes a long way with this kind of party, and you can even include a hot chocolate "bar" for your guests that don't have a designated driver! Small desserts are all the rage, like fantastic cupcakes or even small bite-sized cheesecakes with holiday accents like pomegranate.

You can find many caterers, personal chefs and restaurants that can help you address your Holiday party needs on! Log on today to search for someone in your area. If you are a caterer, personal chef, restaurant owner/manager, pastry chef, or chocolate artisan and would like to be part of the success, contact us today at or call toll-free at 1-877-774-1255. Enjoy!
