Cape Chef and Papa met in the kitchen.

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Dear Friends:

I just spent five hours with Cape Chef!

I was invited to give a class on olive oil at the Mystic Cooking School. Part of the arrangement was that I was expected to also teach some of my great aunt Ypatia's recipes. I was terrified! I am a Home Cook, a Foodie, an Olive oil Consultant, but I am not a trained Chef! I was sharing this info with CC who offered to come to the rescue!

I have cooked these recipes a hundred times before but they never tasted as good as today! Cape Chef is a great guy and I am honored to share his friendship. Top that with being a GREAT SUPER CHEF and now I know why his family adores him!

Happy Father's Day CC! Thank you for your friendship and for allowing me to be your helper in the kitchen today!

(We took pictures too!) :)

PS He really wears a cape! :eek:

Hi Papa!!!

I just returned home after looking in at work after I left you in Mystic.The first thing i did was try one of the lemon stuffed Rovies olives...They are the greatest table olive I have ever eaten. I would like to say that I had a wondeful time "entertaining"the mystic community on the benefite of fine olive oil and great food.
Your aunts recipes were alot of fun for me to prepare and they are excellent dishes.

Papa has a incredible personality and is a joy to be around, It's funny how things happen in life.Papa captivated his audience for three hours with his warm stories while I diced,chopped,roasted and sauteed. I had a great time and I hope that we can again get together,but next time you wear the Apron :D

Oh, I would love to have been there! Oh, I would love to have tasted the food!! What an unbeatable combination of knowledge, personalities and love of all things food in the two of you. So when is the Midwest tour? This is a tag team we should all see in action (hopefully in pictures posted somewhere here, guys).

Dear Friends:

Thank you for your kind comments and sentiments!

Here is the menu:

Country Side Salad with a herbal dressing

Prawns with Feta, Tomatoes, and Greek Oregano

Greek Stuffed Roast Chicken

Garlic, Thyme, & Rosemary Pan-roasted Potatoes

Cognac-flavored Hot Fudge Sauce over ice cream

The recipes are displayed at the "Papa's Kitchen" section of my site (www.OliveTree.cc).

CC had a couple of wonderful suggestions for improving my recipes. I am going to update my recipes to reflect his suggestions this upcoming week.

It was a lot of fun!

You got a deal CC! Next time I will wear the Apron! :D

Dear Friends:

I forgot to mention that we told everyone in the Class the story about how Cape Chef and I met and that this was the first time that we actually met in person. Everyone loved that story and I think that we might have some new foodies-members in our Cafe soon.

I am blushing like a child....

There is something to relish from this encounter. In a world that seems to be so negative,So hurtful. That two people who have never met,but seem to share a passion for good food,good friends as well as other things, come together and have fun,educate and learn. There still is hope in the world :)When I flew to Chicago in May,I was so excited...and I ended up having such a incredible time.Nicko,Coleen,mezz,Momoreg,Jorden They were just names on a screen...(ok,Maybe a little more than that)But when we met and hung out it was like we were old friends. I felt that way when i turned the corner at the cooking school and saw papa sitting there,Olive oil in tow....and a warm ,welcoming smile.I feel blessed to be apart of this industry that has enabled me to meet and talk to so many wonderful people.

Peace and purity.

Having met Cape Chef myself I can also second that there is no one that I would rather have in the kitchen to coach and guide me through a session. You were very blessed Papa. The other side of that is that I have also chatted many times with Papa and I am sure it was a complete thrill for you Cape to hang out with such a great person.

I think it would be cool to post the menu, recipes, and any photos on ChefTalk if you guys are up for it.
Thanks,

Finally! A white cape? Thank you Papa. I should have been able to guess that one :)

Dear Friends:

I am practicing to see if I have finally mastered the technique of posting pictures on our Cafe. I am getting ready for when CC's pictures get developed.

This is my most favorite drawing from a book of my childhood hero Tintin (I am still a dedicated fan of Herge's works). As a child, I used to look at that picture and dream of sailing around the world in the pursuit of new discoveries.

How nice Papa,

Tintin is my very favorite!

Your picture was taken from "Le Secret de La Licorne".

Such fond memories...

I'm sitting here looking at a poster of the rocket landing on the moon as drawn by Hergé. You are never too old for Tintitn. It really should be required reading.

I LOVE Tintin. Iza have you been to le Petit Moulinsart? It used to be one of our favourite hangouts when we lived in Mtl...

Dear Friends:

I am so excited that they are others who share my excitement about Tintin!

When I lived in Belgium I visited the Herge Museum. The exhibits were wonderful! It is never too late to feel like a kid again!

Here is a link that you might enjoy: http://www.Tintin.com

Love Tintin. I knitted a Tintin sweater many years ago (for ME!)...

Pooh I am jealous. I want a Tintin sweater! If only I knew how to knit.

So what's your favourite Tintin? I always had a thing for Tintin au Tibet. I also always liked Tintin et le lotus Bleu and Les cigares du pharaon. Guess I like the exotic one.


I remember as a kid seeing Tintin et les oranges bleues and Tintin et la toison d'or. They are the only films done with actors. What great memory.

Hi Iza,

I like the ones you mentioned, plus:

L'oreille cassée (The Broken Ear)
On a marché sur la lune (Explorers on the Moon)
L'Affaire Tournesol (The Calculus Affair)
Tintin en Amérique (Tintin in America)

The two movies you mentioned are so great, in my humble opinion.

As for the sweater (sigh) I cook more than I knit at the moment. Maybe in my old age...
