MOTB
March 2, 2019 – Music on the Bay

“This is a one of a kind Trop-Rock festival! The event will start Thursday and the music will keep playing until the last note ending just after sunset on Sunday… We have assembled some of the best Trop Rock musicians on the planet to be a part of this PHenomenal event!”

Awwwlways a major hoot. This will be my sixth time bringing my music and gumbo to the Music on the Bay, and it just gets better and better every year. As always we are partying with a purpose! The event benefits The Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.

Vinyl is HERE!
Blind Boy Billy is now available on Vinyl. The recording on this record is pristine and the string arrangements are exquisite! Think Sauce boss with a sousaphone and symphony, and you have an idea of what it sounds like. On the vinyl, it jumps into your lap like your favorite pet. Truly a collectible.

Peruvian Trucha With Mangos

SalmonSalsaMulletRoe
I’ve got a great fish recipe. The idea came from a little Peruvian restaurant, nestled in the little town of Aguas Caliente, right next to Machu Picchu. After a day of climbing toward the sun, using every muscle in my body negotiating the Inca Trail and navigating the “steps” carved into the mountain, (the steps were about a foot wide. On the right hand side of the steps was a shear wall going hundreds of feet straight up, and on the left side of the steps was nothing for hundreds of feet down, the steps were carved into the cliff), and after getting lost on the way to The cave of the Virgins, wandering through the terraced gardens on the cliffs of Huayna Picchu, after after reaching the top of the mountain, making my way back down to the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, and soaking in the hot springs in Aguas Caliente, Sunburned and sore…after all this, I was hongry! So the “trout” with mango hit the spot. It inspired me to do something similar. Instead of the Peruvian Trucha I used a whole filet of salmon and I added red mullet roe, and I made a salsa with big chunks of mangos, onions, peppers, and tomatoes. I baked the salmon. When the fish was mostly done, I covered the whole mess with salsa and finished it off in the broiler.

Foraging on the Skyway

Usually, this little segment of my story is called “Foraging on the Highway”. This time it’s about one of those places where it was difficult to find a bad meal. A place where food quality begins with ingredients grown for the taste rather than the looks of the meats and vegetables. A place that has not totally compromised to the bottom line, almighty dollar mono-culture food production. Istanbul! Here’s a few meals we had last fall in Turkey.

To begin the day: Menemen. Eggs with tomatoes, onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Served with yogurt and honey, cheeses and olives.

 

Fresh sardines and greens.

 

Rooftop dining with a view of the Blue Mosque. While in Istanbul…CHOPS!

 

The Spice Bazaar!

 

 

Grilled to perfection.

 

Stuffed Eggplant

 

A boat trip across the Bosphorus to see how the Asian lamb chops compare.

 

Mediterranean Crabs. Sweeeeet!

 

Perhaps the tastiest beef dish I ever ate. The waiter had a six word English vocabulary and was a bit miffed that I could not speak the Turkish language. This was a last minute trip with hardly any time to prepare. What an adventure. Beef hearts. YUMMM!

 

Dessert. The Turkish people love their “delights”!

Needless to say, I went off my diet…

Stay tuned to this years travelog. Please share the Sauce Boss Adventures the with your friends and family. Sign up to get my musical newsletter/recipe/restaurant review/blog. I am one lucky guy to have this view of the world, I am privileged to be able to share it with all y’all. 

Keep Cookin in 2019!!!!!!
