EPISODE 143 DETAILS
Dinner in The Dark?? A New Jersey chef has launched a new promotion called “Dinner in the Dark” at his restaurants! WHAT a fun idea!? If you dare… Chef David Burke blindfolds diners before serving them a five-course meal. Approximately 12 or 15 years ago during a Wine & Food Festival, David Burke, had tried the idea and it didn’t go so well. HOWEVER he never let go of the concept and has now launched these unique dinner experiences. An example of a meal is of course while blindfolded, diners have been served truffles, puree, broccoli, heirloom tomatoes, cookies, parfaits and candied fruit. The dinner costs $100.
NOW we’ve brought you this creative concept from Chef David Burke, so now I’m going to challenge you and your cooking skills. On your next family dinner, campout or dinner party; consider doing something of the “like”. Let’s see first how TRUSTWORTHY you are deemed by your friends and family, but then also, I see this as a fantastic way fun way to have a dinner conversation like no other plus puts your cooking skills to the test!
TRY THAT IN A SMALL TOWN
After the Jason Aldean backlash across the nation by some, according to Whiskey Riff; Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean’s Nashville restaurant has removed CMT from their televisions after CMT announced it would no longer be airing Aldean’s video for “Try That In A Small Town.” A statement was released by E3 Chophouse saying as follows, “We stand with Jason! E3 supports the small town because that is who we are! We will not air CMT at any of our restaurants until a formal apology is made and Jason’s music video is reinstated.” We too are in support of Jason Aldean, love his hit song that has been playing on country radio for months alre ady. Whether you are from a small town or not, we all strive to be better people and live in a community that supports one another. That’s America. Head to our website TheBendShow.com to watch Jason Aldean’s video for his latest hit, “Try That In A Small Town.”
We have all seen the jokes, the funny memes of Don’t Pet the Fluffy Cow… So in case you have not heard, two national parks thus far in recent weeks have had horrific incidents regarding people and bison or buffalo. The woman in North Dakota visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park is recovering from injuries to her stomach and foot after having been charged. In Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, there a bison gored a woman. Please Please, regardless if you are familiar with these types of animals, new to the terrain, landscape or otherwise these are great reminders. It is Mating Season across many areas for a diverse group of animals, not just bison or buffalo. Big Game to livestock such as bulls breeding cattle. Do not cross fences, do not tempt fate!

BIG GAME HUNTING
SUMMER RECIPE: DESSERT
HERE’S WHAT’S COOKING WITH BEC
SUMMER Fruit Fondue Pizza Style
BEC’s at it again, playing in the kitchen and having fun with her nephews, niece, and friends. What are things that ALL folks love? Pizza. AND Fruit. And what’s even more refreshing in the summer, is Fruit Pizza! Here’s the idea!
Bake or buy palm-size sugar cookies. Then set up your table or buffet line with first your “Sauce” aka a sweetened cream cheese spread. Can add coloring & other flavors such as strawberry if you want to a “red sauce” and then “vanilla” or “almond” to the “white sauce”. Once guests spread their sugar crust pizza cookie with the sauce have an assortment of fresh fruits, dipping sauces like chocolate or hot fudge warmed in small pots, or if an older crowd even toss in a small open flame to toast a quick marshmallow and sprinkle that combination with crushed graham crackers. All types of fruits, mixed nuts, and even fun candied sprinkles for the kids will make this an Unforgettable Fruit Pizza Fondue!
