Hungry Mutineer Archive: Gin Soaked Lamb Sandwiches

Hungry Mutineer Lamb Sandwich

Last summer my column Hungry Mutineer featured a menu on cooking with gin. My favorite recipe from that was this Gin Soaked Lamb Sandwich with Fennel Salad and Blackberry Gin Sauce. From the moment you slather the leg of lamb with the herbaceous paste to your last bite, this sandwich is sexy, unctuous and utterly delicious. See the full post »

LA Celebrates 3 Years of Making Lemonade With Alex

FoodOther Beverage

Alex's Lemonade Stand

Alexandra “Alex” Scott was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer, shortly before her first birthday. At four, little Alex exemplified the adage “if life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” With the help of her older brother, Patrick, Alex set up a front yard lemonade stand in order to raise money for all types of childhood cancer – not just her own.

She raised $2,000 from that first fundraiser, and continued to run a lemonade stand every year until her death four years later. By that time, “Alex’s Lemonade Stand” had already raised $1 million toward finding a cure for the types of cancer that make infants and children its primary target.

Alex’s parents started Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) in 2005 to continue their daughter’s work. ALSF funds more than 250 leading-edge medical research projects, they raise awareness of childhood cancers and causes, they’ve created a travel program to help support the families of children receiving cancer treatment
, and ALSF provides resources to assist people everywhere who are affected by childhood cancers of all kinds. Since Alex opened her lemonade stand in 2000, she and the foundation that came after, have raised more than $55 million.

LA loves Alex’s Lemonade Stand, as well as a host of celebrity chefs, who are bringing L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade back for its third, star-studded year. Chef Suzanne Goin and her partner Caroline Styne (Lucques, A.O.C., Tavern), and Chef David Lentz (The Hungry Cat) have hosted the event from the beginning. They’re joined by Neil Patrick Harris and his partner, E! News Correspondent David Burtka, who will return as Honorary Co-Hosts. Jimmy Kimmel, who is a member of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s National Advisory Board, will come back as Master of Ceremonies.

Returning Chefs Giada De Laurentiis, Paul Kahan, April Bloomfield, Chris Bianco, Marc Vetri, Jonathan Waxman, will be joined by new participating chefs Matt Accarino, Katrina Markoff, Nancy Oakes, Michael Schwartz, Mary Sue Milliken and Rocco Whalen. To toast the small victories, guests get to experience the cocktail creations of major mixologists, including Eric Alperin (The Varnish), Neal Bodenheimer (Cure), Tim Staehling (The Hungry Cat), Greg Lindgren (Rye on the Road), Chris Ojeda (Soho House), Steve Widly (Vetri) and Christiaan Rolich (Lucques).

New York’s Prohibition Bakery

Prohibition Bakery

Mojito Cupcake

Those of you who read my column Hungry Mutineer know that seeking new combinations of booze and food is one of my life’s pursuits. I’ve always got an eye out for like-minded people and I believe I’ve found two.

In NYC there are two young women with the spectacular idea of opening a boozy cupcakery. Prohibition Bakery opened last week and are serving up inspired flavors such as Scotch & Cigar and Pretzels & Beer. Pretzels & Beer! They also create personalized cupcakes using your favorite libation. I want to go here so badly I can taste it, but sadly I live on the west coast. If you go please be sure to report back to me, I have to know if these are as incredible as they sound.

Visit Prohibition Bakery at 9 Clinton Street, New York, NY

Visit their website for more information http://www.prohibitionbakery.com/ or find them on Facebook.

Hungry Mutineer Recipe: Gin Baked Beans

Food

Gin Baked Beans

In issue 24 of Mutineer Magazine the Hungry Mutineer cooked with St. George Terroir Gin, featuring pulled lamb sandwiches with a blackberry gin sauce, a fresh herb cucumber salad and a gin and tonic slushy. The recipe for gin baked beaks didn’t fit on the page, so I decided to save it and share it with you here.

In this recipe the gin is a prominent part of the rich liquor the beans are simmer in. The flavor transforms from a bright and earthy drink into a luscious velvety sauce. Enjoy!

    Gin Baked Beans

  • 2 TBS. olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 lb. smoked pork belly (slab bacon)
  • 2 c. dried cranberry beans, soaked overnight and drained
  • 1 c. gin
  • ¼ c. agave
  • ¼ c. balsamic vinegar
  • 4 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • water

Preheat oven to 275F.

Using an oven proof pot, sauté the onion in olive oil using a large pot over medium heat until brown, before adding the beans, pork belly and garlic. Add in the remaining ingredients, cover with water, bring the beans to a boil then reduce the heat after ten minutes. Place the lid and place in the oven for 8 hours, stirring occasionally and skimming the excess fat from the top. Check for salt and pepper before serving. Can be made ahead and reheated.
