Men, Don’t Laugh At your Wife.... Never laugh at your wife when she is on the floor. It’s not funny! Back pain can pop up at any time and when it does, it can be very, very severe. Dont be surprised if you come home from work someday and find your wife laying on the floor in tears. Back pain results from many causes. It can be from a disc that is out, a pinched nerve, an arthritis flare-up or even from a simple but severe muscle spasm. When back pain hits hard, the pain is so severe that it can put you right on the floor! I’ve seen that type of back pain so many times in my office. I’ve often seen my patients dragged into the office, on crutches, with every little movement causing the worst pain imaginable. Sometimes, it seems like there is nothing that can be done for relief. But many of these patients leave my office walking and smiling. Chiropractic is the answer!

Adams Avenue eats

Filet dish a hit at college’s student-run restaurant


By Gia Mazur STaff WriTer

ackawanna College’s Culinary Arts program believes in hands-on experience — and Local Flavor couldn’t be happier. During the school year, 409 on Adams is a completely student-run restaurant that serves everything from contemporary American cuisine to dishes from various cultures. The reservation-only spot proved to be a hit and sold out within three days of opening this past spring. On a recent afternoon, Local Flavor got an exclusive tasting so home cooks could try their hands at one of the restaurant’s top recipes before it opens up again in the fall. Say hello to Sous Vide Bistro Filet with Sweet Potato, Jalapeño and Portobello Mushroom Hash and Chimichurri, created by Mark Seibert, certified executive chef, certified culinary educator and culinary arts program manager.

Seibert said the unique part about the dish is the way it’s cooked. Seibert uses an immersion circulator, which cooks meat inside a vacuumsealed bag and keeps it at a stable temperature for consistency and precision. This gives the meat a tender and buttery consistency, which

Limited seating is available, and reservations may be made until an event is sold out. for reservations, call 570-955-1548. contrasts nicely against the chimichurri, an Argentinian sauce used on grilled meats with a garlic, vinegar taste. Cooks can find an immersion circulator to use at home, but Seibert also said cooks can use any of their preferred methods to prepare this recipe, including charbroil grill, pan sear and roasting. Seibert uses bistro filet, which also may be substituted with any suitable cut of beef or steak traditionally prepared on a grill. The same goes with the vegetables used in the hash. “It’s about whatever you

want or feel comfortable with,” he said. “That’s really the beauty of cooking. You can do whatever you like.” The steak tasted super tender and flavorful, and it was the perfect color, thanks to the immersion circulator’s consistent temperature. The savory hash made for the perfect complement, and the garlic, cilantro-powered chimichurri topped it all off. Through Lackawanna’s Kiesendahl School of Hospitality, the culinary arts students work on the menu items at 409 on Adams while the hospitality students run the house. Pastry students create the desserts and breads. “It’s a complete hands-on experience for the students, Gia MaZUr / STaff PHOTO and it’s a way to bring the Lackawanna College Culinary Arts Program is this community in and show off week’s Local Flavor Gives Back recipient thanks to certiwhat we have to offer,” said fied executive chef, certified culinary educator and culiSusan C.
