Let’s face it: Everyone loves chicken fingers — both kids and adults. So why not eat chicken fingers you can feel good about? Ditch the ones available in the frozen aisle and roll skinless chicken breasts in crunchy panko breadcrumbs, then bake them off until crisp and cooked through. Add lime juice and curry powder to ketchup for an upgraded dipping sauce.

Fish Farming in Hell’s Kitchen

by in Events, May 18th, 2011

tilapia
That’s right: There is a tilapia farm in Manhattan. Food and Finance High School students are learning careers for the future from this lab run by Cornell Extension Professor Philson Warner. Aquaculture is a closed system of farming that raises hydroponic crops that links to a fish farm, cleaning and feeding as it cycles. The good professor suggests that this is how man might one day farm on planets less green than our own.

Join Food Network Kitchens this Friday, May 20, at 6:30 PM at Chelsea Market in New York City, for a special evening fundraiser and silent auction benefiting the Food and Finance High School. Special guests include Alex Guarnaschelli and Kelsey Nixon. Get tickets at foodeducationfund.org.

Dinner In The Dark, an impromptu dinner series designed to stimulate diners’ palates by offering no clues to the menu or who will be cooking, is hosting a special edition dinner to honor Matthew Finkel. Matthew passed away on December 29, 2010 in a car accident at the age of 22 — he was an amazing individual and a talent in the kitchen, who at a very young age became a part of Food Network’s family. This event, which features over 15 chefs offering small bites, will help the Matthew Finkel Scholarship Fund. The Fund is dedicated to helping culinary students with extreme financial need, who are attending the Culinary Institute of America.

“In evaluating all the candidates in conjunction with the CIA for the scholarship, Matthew Finkel definitely stood out in the crowd,” says Bruce Seidel, Senior Vice President of Programming.

“He was an amazing individual full of compassion, passion and the type of person who took care of everyone around him while he sacrificed for all. Matthew touched our hearts with the way he helped others, so the team at Food Network wanted to graciously help him and awarded Matthew our scholarship.”

Price is $40.00 per person, all inclusive. The dinner also offers great raffle drawing prizes including two VIP tickets to a filming of Iron Chef America.

Purchase tickets here for the May 23 event in Cleveland, Ohio.

Recipe of the Day: S’more Brownies

by in Recipes, May 18th, 2011

chocolate brownie smores
This is not your average brownie and yes, you can start drooling now.

A crust of butter, sugar and graham cracker is pressed evenly over the bottom of the pan than baked to golden perfection. Next, a thick, fudgy brownie batter gets poured on top and baked just until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. At that point, large marshmallows are added to the top of the dessert and put under the broiler under slightly melted.

Three different layers form three scrumptious textures.

Tip: While dinner is cooking, bake these showstoppers. By the time you’ve finished eating and washed the dishes, these brownies will have cooled down and be ready to eat.
