“Lest we forget”
For those who were killed in battle,
For those who gave up their lives to save others
For those who fought because they were forced to,
For those who died standing up for a just cause
For those who said war was wrong,
For those who tried to make the peace
For those who prayed when others had no time to pray
For those creatures who needlessly die
For those trees that needlessly are slaughtered
For all of mankind

Another Great recipe from Chef Ken Schulz

Pan Roasted Chicken crusted with Sun dried Cranberries, goat cheese and peanuts, enriched by a cranberry balsamic glaze

• 6 8oz chicken breast skin on
• 1/3 cup peanuts
• 1/3 cup sun dried cranberries
• 1/3 unripe goat’s cheese
• 3 tablespoons oil
• Salt and pepper
First prepare the crust for the chicken by chopping the peanuts in a food processor, then add the dried cranberries and goat’s cheese and blend together just until mixed, do not over blend. Heat a cast iron pan, add a little oil, and then place seasoned chicken breast skin side down until it starts to brown. Flip chicken and sear opposite side, turn back to skin down and place in a preheated 350 F. oven until fully cooked. Remove from oven and preheat broiler in oven to 400f. Now with turn chicken over, skin should be golden brown and crispy. Take the goats cheese mixture and place on top of chicken breast packing it down so that it sticks to the chicken. Place under broiler until goat’s cheese has browned less. Keep a close watch at this point because it will brown quickly, about a minute or less. Remove from oven and serve with cranberry balsamic glaze.
• 1 cup Cranberry Juice
• ¼ cup White Balsamic vinegar
• 1 cup fresh cranberries
• ¼ cup Grandview Honey

Add all ingredients in a pot and cook uncovered on the stove at a medium heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes then blend well with a hand blender or food processor. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Maple Vanilla Creme Brulee
Having a dinner party? Looking for the perfect dessert? Chef Ken has shared his recipe for maple vanilla creme brulee and it is awesome!

Here is what you will need:

• 1L 35% cream
• ¼ cup sugar
• ½ cup pure maple syrup
• 1 vanilla beans or 2 tbs of extract
• 10 egg yolks
• 2 whole egg

Method: Preheat oven to 275 F. Put the cream and half the sugar in a sauce pan with the vanilla bean. Bring just to a boil. Meanwhile, mix together the remaining sugar, egg yolks and whole eggs. Strain the hot cream mix over the egg mixture gradually whisking well. Strain to get any bits of cooked egg or shell. Ladle mix into ramekins and place in a hotel pan. Add 1 inch of water to the bottom of the hotel pan. Cook for 1.5 hours or until set in the center. Cool and caramelize with sugar and torch when ready to serve.
