Our next Hipp Kitchen class in San Francisco, CA July 11th!
Register at : http://www.hippkitchen.com/wp/events/cooking-our-books-maximum-flavor-july-11-2015/

The second cooking event in our series called “Cooking Our Books.” Chefs Tom Herndon and Stanley Lui are teaming up to bring you recipes based on the cookbooks "Maximum Flavor" and "Ideas in Food." This meal will be WAY off the hook. Seriously.

Early Girl Tomatoes Salad with Nori. Both the seaweed and the tomatoes, earth and sea, have a ton of natural glutemates that maximize their savory flavors.

Halibut Sous Vide with a Smoked Coconut and Thai Basil Pesto. The fish will be melt-in-your-mouth tender and infused with delicate Thai basil, then add a pesto made from lightly smoked and toasted coconut flakes and more Thai basil. Mmmmm-mm.

Lemon-Roasted Potatoes. Onions and thinly sliced lemons cook together underneath the potatoes, turning into a sweet and savory marmalade.

And we'll be making White Chocolate Pudding, topping it with Strawberries macerated in a syrup of Maple and Grand Marnier. To add even more decadence, we'll infuse some fine sea salt with Vanilla Beans and do a light sprinkle over the top.
Over the top. Yes. That seems appropriate.

We only have a few seats left and it's a week from today. This one will be a meal to remember.

A simple plea to help Aubrey, who is on a hunger strike for a fair hearing in Colorado. Please stop and take a moment for her story. http://www.madinamerica.com/2014/10/whistleblower-hunger-strike-why-im-willing-to-die-on-the-governors-doorstep/

Posting this for a young friend on a Hunger Strike for a Fair Trial involving the state of Colorado, child abuse, and evidence at the mental health clinic where she was treated as a child. I pray she gets the Hearing she deserves.

Remember Steve Jobs? He was a Reed dropout. This is an incredible place that breeds and attracts amazing minds. We're on a deadline people! Give now!

If you have ever felt grateful for students receiving financial aid for Reed, or if you were lucky enough to be one, or thought students should be getting more, the time to give something is NOW. It can be a lot or a pittance. What counts is your support. Today. Did I mention there's a deadline? Oh yeah. That would be Now.

It's today. The time is now.

Great one-on-one demo with WePay yesterday, an alternative to PayPal and Square. Better than configuring Paypal buttons, not as feature-laden as full-blown shopping carts, but a lot of small vendors don't need a complicated solution. No monthly contract, pay-as-you-go. Three year startup in Palo Alto.
WePay is the easiest way to accept payments online. Sign up to get started today.
