Duet: Classic Steak Bearnaise / KC and the Sunshine Band “Do You Wanna Go Party”

The food: In my Q&A with Chef George Formaro earlier this week, I discovered his guilty food pleasure is a juicy steak with decadent Bearnaise sauce. He was kind enough to share his recipe for a classic steak Bearnaise, along with some helpful hints for getting it right (more on those in a minute). The music: In the same interview, George admitted he likes KC  and the[…]

The food: I am new to seafood. After being a strict vegetarian for most of my life, I returned to my carnivorous roots about 5 years ago. While I took to beef and chicken quickly, seafood remained on my no-way-José list. I was certain seafood was gross, an opinion based entirely on the fish sticks I ate as a child (there are no oceans near St. Louis!). After[…]
