Holidays Can Be Stressful

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and to those in observance, May we wish you all a very Happy Hanukkah!

Now I know that the holidays can be stressful but please know that the most important thing we can focus on is the time spent with our precious loved ones. Please know that I am not talking about sitting in the living room, watching Rudolf the Rednosed Reindeer while half of your crowd is gazing at their technology tumors (of course I mean the cell phone). No I'm referring to the ancient practice of breaking bread with the ones you love. One great fishmonger once said "That you will never know someone until your legs are under the table and someone is gently rubbing your calf with stocking feet." Okay, that's a little weird but you get the idea.

But seriously, preparing a meal for those special folks is a gift we can give every day and while I'm on the subject, no one says you have to cook alone. In fact, there is no greater human bonding then creating together in the kitchen. I know what you are thinking, Hey Fishman, I can barely make toast, how the hell am I going to contribute. Well for starters, although you might not be Julia Childs incarnate, I'm pretty sure you can chop the garlic and if that task seems daunting to you, you can always refresh the cocktails of those in the kitchen. Hey, I just thought of your new title, Executive Libation Chef...I know, it's got a nice ring to it. Now fetch me a playful glass of Pinot and let's start cooking. Now should you be in the mood for a couple of zestfully flavored Seafood dishes this week,

I sincerely hope you will consider today's original recipes featuring Grouper Pan Roast with Harissa and Chickpeas & Roasted Whole Cilantro Lemon Red Snapper with Sumac. Excuse me but the wine isn't going to pour itself Executive Libation Chef...chop, chop.
