Butter Is Better
COOK MAGAZINE|April 2018

As I mentioned in this month’s Editor’s Note, Cook Magazine has just turned 18.

Chef Dino Datu

I decided to prepare a few savory dishes, plated altogether to celebrate this momentous event. The concept was to plate a few savory items together with something sweet to symbolize 18 years of everything we’ve done at Cook Magazine.

I chose a few simple dishes for my savory “side” of the plate, while our friend and contributor Chef Edward Mateo took care of the sweet side. Whenever I want to prepare something simple and quick, I usually turn to one simple ingredient - butter. On its own or in combination with other herbs and aromatics, butter just gives any dish instant richness.

Salt And Smoke

I don’t think I am alone in thinking that barbecued meat is probably one of, if not the most appetizing thing you can watch on TV. Of all the cuisines that play on the food channels, only barbecue has multiple shows on its specific cuisine. It even beats shows on burgers or pizza or TexMex on the amount of coverage it gets.

REVINYLIZATION

Blood, Sweat & Tears began as Al Kooper’s dream of a rock band with horns. By the time he realized the concept—on the band’s 1968 debut, Child Is Father to the Man—it had become much more: an engaging hybrid of New York soul, Greenwich Village folk, and innovative jazz arrangements. With producer John Simon at the helm, Child was a virtual definition of the possibilities inherent in the heady musical experimentation of the late 1960s. Kooper’s writing and arranging for that record (including the monumental “I’ll Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know,” later a hit for Donny Hathaway) is one of the high points of his storied career. The record was justifiably praised as the conceptual breakthrough it was, and work had already begun on a follow-up when the band decided it needed a lead singer with more polish. Kooper left the group along with a couple of other key members.
