Smoked Salmon Chowder Poutine

The Québécois classic poutine demands fresh, squeaky cheese curds, which are difficult to find in Alaska.   Jeff Lockwood takes matters into his own hands, transforming two gallons of milk into a pile of curds, then using them in a smoked-salmon-chowder-inspired poutine, in an attempt to provide a karmic boost to the Montréal Canadiens in their unlikely run to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Vinegar

Vinegar's much more than a component of vinaigrette.  Jeff Lockwood turns it into a beverage, a barbecue sauce, and a quick pickle.

It's hard to cook without fire, and you can't have fire without fuel.  Wood's been the #1 choice throughout history.  Jeff Lockwood is joined by former Three Legged Mule and Twitching Sushi bassist Atz Lee Kilcher and his massive Spanish wood cookstove, and do a little ice fishing on Caribou Lake hunting for kokanee and trout to cook on it.

Green bell peppers make a nice springboard to cooking up the New Orleans brunch classic grillades and grits.  Host Jeff Lockwood expounds at length on his indifference to grits, and explains why they are not merely boring, but dangerous.

Coffee

Coffee

For many of us, coffee is utilitarian, the tool that knocks us awake in the morning.  For Justice Sky, of Ano Kissaten Coffee Roasters, it's much more than that - it's a world of flavors specific to where the beans are grown.  Justice walks Jeff Lockwood through making coffee from roasting raw beans to brewing the perfect cup - for you and for the bean.

With a worldwide pandemic raging, getting together for a big meal is a terrible idea.  Finding ways to shrink Thanksgiving classics down?  Fantastic idea.  Jeff Lockwood makes turkey ballotines (and has unkind things to say about the turducken), as well as sweet potato gnocchi and green bean casserole, with a remote appearance from Teri Robl's stuffin' muffins.
