Captured! The Elusive Quiche

I imagine most of you saw my wailing post of last week about my many attempts to land another of Chef Herve’s wonderful Quiche of smoked salmon and asparagus. Well, finally, I got one. And, yes, it was just as good as I’d remembered from that first time….light, delicate and overflowing with wondrous flavor. That smoky salmon and springtime fresh asparagus simply seem to marry into something for the angels to sing about. Plus, to top it all off, the light as air puff pastry crust is marvelous. Persistence pays!

Is Your Sauce Worth A Million Bucks?

If so, have a try at Dave’s Gourmet Recipe Challenge. You could win up to a $1 million in royalties.  Send your sauce, salsa, dip or spread to Dave’s Gourmet early enough that it arrives by Dec. 31, 2011, and you could win!

Rules:  You must warrant that this is your recipe and yours alone.

             Recipes will be judged in five categories:  taste, appearance, creativity, consumer appeal and the recipe’s ability to be mass-produced (that is, if one of the ingredients is hand-cut bay leaves from a tree that grows only in the southernmost tip of Italy, it probably would be too difficult to manufacture.

              The sauce will be produced for Dave’s Gourmet’s retailers and may have the winner’s name right on the label.

               Winner will receive royalties for 6 years, up to $1 million. 

            All chefs, amateur or professional, are free to enter.

            For entry form, and complete details, go to

            And good luck!  If you win, please let us know!

Time to Vote in the DineSouth poll at South Magazine

Their categories are pretty strange….in the “American” category, lumping together the likes of Alligator Soul and Aqua Star with Clary’s Cafe, Crystal Beer Parlor and the zillion more in between seems downright ridiculous. Nevertheless, we think we ought to vote….for Alligator Soul as Best American. The only one with a consistent combination of superb food, atmosphere and service each and every time!
