moscow mule


Moscow Mule Hi s to ry The story of the Moscow Mule begins in 1939 when a nearly broke Russian ex-pat, Rudolph Kunett, sold the Smirnoff brand to John Martin, head of G.F. Heublein & Bros. Eventually John Martin used the Moscow Mule to help promote vodka to bars across the US and this helped fuel the mainstream acceptance of vodka as the preferred white spirit, replacing gin. Martin set off to market the Moscow Mule in the bars around the country. He bought one of the first Polaroid cameras and asked barmen to pose with a Moscow Mule copper mug and a bottle of Smirnoff vodka. Then he would leave one copy of the photo at the bar and take a second copy to the bar next door to show them that their competitors were selling their concoction. Between 1947 and 1950, thanks to their invention, Smirnoff vodka case columns more than tripled and nearly doubled in 1951. The Moscow Mule took heat for the Russian association. Assuming that Smirnoff was a Russian import, unionized bartenders in New York announced a Moscow Mule boycott, refusing to “shove slave labor liquor across the wood in any American saloon.” Smirnoff rushed to testify that its vodka was not, and never had been a member of the Communist Party. In support, Walter Winchell wrote in 1951, “The Moscow Mule is US made, so don’t be political when you’re thirsty. Three are enough, however, to make you wanna fight pro-Communists.”

What is Poke and Poi? Poke (pronounced “PO-keh”) is a Hawaiian fish salad, usually raw, served as an appetizer. Poi (pronounced “POY”) is traditionally made of taro root cooked and pounded to a sticky paste. Here the “poi” is made with pineapple, with xanthan gum giving it its sticky quality, and the taro is made into a chip served alongside

kalbi korean short ribs

supp e r

Kalbi Korean Short Ribsgred I ng re d i e n ts 4 pounds Korean-style short ribs (LA style cut ribs also works) ž cup soy sauce 2 tbsp. sugar 2 tbsp. brown sugar ½ onion yellow onion 2 stalks green onion 2 tsp ginger, minced

3-6 cloves garlic, minced 1 tbsp. honey 2-3 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds 1 tsp. sesame oil 1 tsp. oil ½ tsp. cayenne 2 tbsp. mirin/rice wine (or white vinegar)

D i r e cti o n s 1. Combine all ingredients except for ribs in a large bowl or plastic bag, make sure the bag is big enough that it can fit the ribs in later. 2. Mix all ingredients until sugar has dissolved. 3. Submerge ribs in the marinade making sure they are completely covered. Meat can be touching but make sure to mix it so that the marinade gets in between the ribs. Cover the bowl or close the bag with no air so that the marinade is always touching the ribs. 4. Refrigerate for 4 hours, but the longer the better, letting it marinate overnight is highly recommended. Half way through resting, or in the morning if doing overnight, make sure to turn the meat or flip and mix around the plastic bag so that all parts are getting an even marinade. 5. Remove from marinade, wipe or shake off excess marinade on meat, too much excess soy sauce, sesame seeds, or sugar on the outside of meat can burn and give a different flavored than desired. Cook on a preheated grill for about 4 to 6 minutes, or until meat is at desired doneness. Finish up by garnishing with toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onions, though not required. recipe submitted by Paul Washington; recipe credit Joyce Washington

In another bowl stir together peanut butter and powdered sugar. Form peanut butter into teaspoon sized balls and press into the indentations in the brownie cookies. 6. Press peanut butter down slightly because the peanut butter won’t spread and you don’t want the cookies to be too tall. 7. Bake for 10 –12 minutes until edges are set, then let cool until they are room temperature. 8. When cooled, top each cookie with about a tablespoon of chocolate frosting and a pinch of sea salt flakes. Easy Fudge Frosting 9.

brown butter spoon cookies

Brown Butter Spoon Cookies I ng re d i e n ts 1 cup unsalted butter 2 cups all-purpose flour ¾ tsp. baking powder

pinch fine salt 1 large egg yolk ¾ cup sugar

1 tbsp. vanilla extract ¼ – ⅓ cup raspberry jam confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

D i r e cti o n s 1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 2. Melt the butter in a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Continue to cook, swirling the pan occasionally, until the butter browns lightly and smells slightly nutty, about 15 minutes. Transfer the butter to a medium bowl—be sure to get all the tasty brown bits—and cool slightly. 3. Meanwhile, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in another medium bowl. Whisk the egg yolk, sugar and vanilla into the cooled browned butter. Stir the dry ingredients into the buter mixture to make a uniform but crumbly dough that looks like wet sand. 4. Scoop out dough with a small teaspoon (the kind you set the table with, not the ones you measure with). Rock spoon gently back and forth against the side of the bowl, packing the dough into the spoon, then scrape/slide the spoon against the inside of the bowl to make spoon-shaped cookies. Trim excess dough with your fingers and slide out onto the prepared pans, preserving their shape. (Try to make sure you form an even number of cookies, since these sandwich together.) 5. Bake cookies until just browned, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool almost completely on the baking sheets, and then transfer cookies to a rack to cool. 6. When cool, spread ½ teaspoon jam on the flat side of a cookie, and then sandwich together with a second cookie. Repeat until all cookies have met their match. Lightly dust the cookies with the confectioners’ sugar. Serve. recipe submitted by Madison Mar; recipe credit Food Network Kitchens (

sw e e ts

Grandma’s Swedish Pancakes I ng re d i e n ts 3 eggs 1¼ cup of milk ¾ cup of flour

½ tsp salt 2 tbsps. of sugar 4 tbsps. of butter

1 lemon powdered sugar

D i r e cti o n s 1. Set a large non-stick saucepan on medium heat and coat with non-stick spray. 2. Wisk together the eggs in a large bowl and then add milk. Then, in a separate bowl combine the sugar, flour, and salt. Whisk in this mixture little by little to the eggs and milk, until there are no clumps and the batter is creamy. 3. Add a few tablespoons (depending on how large your pan is) to your heated saucepan and swivel the saucepan around so the batter covers the entire bottom portion of the pan. This should be a thin coating on the saucepan and should rise up to the edges a little bit. 4. Flip the pancake when the thin edges start to brown by using a large spatula after delicately peeling the edges, and then the whole pancake from the pan. It should be a very light brown color on the side now facing up. After a little more time when the edges start to get crisp, roll the pancake up and place it on a warm plate. 5. Serve with powdered sugar and melted butter and lemon juice mixture. 6. Add on any topping of your choice like fruit, nutella, peanut butter, syrup, jam, etc. recipe submited by Rebecca Reid; recipie credit Lavina DeNatale
