By Christopher Stewart | April 22, 2013

Salad for Dinner
salad for dinner, fresh and healthy

Get fresh and light for dinner with this great cookbook.

I know some people are not fans of salad. Some believe it’s not a filling meal, others say it’s too healthy, and a few say it’s too expensive.  I don’t fit into any of these categories. I love eating fresh crisp salads whether it be for a light lunch or a satisfying dinner. Jeanne Kelley, food editor and author of  ”Salad for Dinner: Complete Meals for all Seasons”  has compiled a vibrant cookbook, dedicated to everything salad. Starting off, what do you need to enjoy a great salad… none of than fresh greens. With the first section in the book appropriately titled, “A Salad Primer”  you will learn the definition and origins of salad greens, herbs, and foraged greens like chickweed, dandelion greens and wood sorrel, and also what should accompany these lettuces.

By Christopher Stewart | March 13, 2013

Good Bite

Am I the only one counting down the days until spring? Its been a cold winter full of hearty soups, thick warming stews, and leftovers but with spring weeks away, I can’t help but think about lighter dinners and fresh produce. With sunshine and warm weather, comes the need to cook fresh new meals. We have been eating heavy all winter long, and I know for me as soon as it gets light outside, I’m on a mission to eat something new for dinner most of the week, not including take-out (which will always have a special place in my heart).

 In this new series we explore the books, new and old, that sit on our conference bookshelf. 

In the era of  all things food, the word “vegetarian” still shakes people up a bit. Vegetables are still getting a pretty bad wrap, even with the continual rise of more and more people becoming vegetarians, the success of upscale, all-vegetarian restaurants, and the world wide consumer love of Meatless Monday. Contrary to what some believe, you can be vegetarian and continue to experience bold flavors, new textures and have filling lunches, dinners, snacks and everything else in between. Read More

By admin | February 13, 2012

Cal Massey

Join Red Rooster Harlem as we host one more unforgettable evening in a tribute concert to honor legendary jazz musician Cal Massey. Massey’s soulful compositions continue to resonate today. His poignant works have been recorded by John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Jackie McLean, Lee Morgan, Philly Lee Jones, Archie Shepp, and others. In addition to composing jazz music, Massey spent part of his career as a touring artist who performed across the country, including Harlem’s original Red Rooster.

Our evening of jazz will be conducted by Fred Ho-revolutionary Chinese American baritone saxophonist, composer, writer, producer and political activist.  Fred has received numerous honors for his work and is the youngest person to ever receive the Duke Ellington Distinguished Artist Lifetime Achievement Award. His unique work and style personify the cross-cultural hybrid of American New Music and Jazz.

Of course, the night would not be complete without the Red Rooster’s signature fare and librations. Our menu will feature a selection of newly composed dishes and signature cocktails reflecting the vibe and elegance of Red Rooster’s downstairs venue. Read More
