EDITORIAL SNIPPETS

Jazz from Africa is in a good place, there are more Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz artists releasing their own albums without assistance from record labels. What is most pleasing about this is many of those albums are of original works with fewer and fewer standards being included. Is this a good thing or not?

In my opinion it is indeed a very good thing because musicians are discovering their own voices and creativity without having to rely on “the standards”. These tunes when recorded are just boring copies of their current favourite artists version of those “jazz standards” often with any real thought and preparation to make and arrange exciting fresh versions of those “standards”. Like I said boring and it will be only family and really good friends will offer high praise for what that musician has recorded. Come now be honest, it has happened to you too.

At All Jazz Radio we make no judgment when we receive albums from musicians from the global village and all tracks from the albums we receive go into our playlist system, it is up to the individual presenters to choose and play those tracks during their shows, or not.

The caveat is however when writing a review about any album we expect the reviewer to be brutally honest and truthful with their opinion, whether they like or dislike the album. Most reviewers only write about the albums they like and disregard those they dislike. Publications, Blogs and Websites don’t publish negative reviews. Is it fair the artists hear nothing about their album from the people, radio stations, publications and bloggers they have sent their CD/LP to? Here at All Jazz Radio we tell it like it is, warts and all, no punches pulled. The only allowance we make is that before we publish, we speak frankly to the artist concerned directly either in person or on the phone about what will be published. Do you agree or disagree? Email us your thoughts, should we publish or not?

Our venerable old AJR person in charge, The Commander of The August Society of Crusty, Grumpy, yet very friendly, Folks Society and Founder of The Fraternal Order of Masticators and Connoisseurs of Squished Berry of the Vine Federation Sippers and our tame, friendly Klutz in the Kitchen continues to scour the interweb for a variety of simple quick, easy and tasty recipes that any Klutz can prepare and create surprising friends and family who had no idea of their secret hard learned new skill set. The Klutz in The Kitchenis then instructed to share the recipes from time to time he also invites guest, Chefs, Cooks, Restaurateurs, Home Cooks and cooking goody suppliers into the studio for informal and interesting chats from time to time. The recipes are shared on in the body of A Blog Supreme and The Klutz In The Kitchen on All Jazz Radio Cape Town South Africa Facebook page then from time to time hitting the streaming airwaves during The Jazz Rendezvous Pinotage, Coffee & Stockvel Show.

Jazz stands for freedom. It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist – leave that to the classical musicians. Dave Brubeck

LAUGH OF THE WEEK

Two musicians who haven’t seen each other for some time meet late one night in a jazz club. “Hey, man,” says one, “I hear you recorded a CD.”
“Yeah, that’s right, man,” replies the other. “I released it a few months ago.”
“How much have you sold?” asks the first.
“Ohh…just the house and the car.”

REASONS TO CELEBRATE

FRIDAY July 13, 2018 Today is international French Fries and Slap Chips Day!

French fries are a classic fast food treat and the perfect hamburger pairing. There are dozens of different ways to enjoy french fries. Whether you prefer your fries Cajun-style, sweet potato, crinkle-cut, curly, waffle, or covered in chili and cheese, today is the day to celebrate this world wide favourite.

The exact origin of French fries is unknown, however, one theory suggests that they date back to 17th century Belgium. The inhabitants of this region often cooked small fried fish to accompany their meals. When weather conditions made it too dangerous to go fishing, they cut up potatoes in long, thin strips (to resemble the fish) and fried them!

Today, French fries are a popular snack and side dish across the globe. Whether it’s “pommes frites” in France, “patatas fritas” in Spain, or “chips” in the UK, French fries are a worldwide favorite. Grab an order of fries from your favorite fast food restaurant to celebrate National French Fries Day!

July 13, 2018 is also International Embrace Your Geekness, Barbershop Music Appreciation, Puzzle Collector, Car Appreciation Day

July is International Grilling, Ice Cream and Hot Dog Month

Frank Leepa biography: brutal history, personal beefs and brilliant music

July 10,2018

“Sankomota was a name I’d been playing around with for a while. It came from the stories told by Mathabatha (Sexwale’s) grandmother. Sankomota is a kind of David-and-Goliath figure in Pedi folklore. It seemed appropriate somehow…”

To outsiders, music is a baffling business. Novelists regularly get it wrong, veering wildly between portraying the musician as a crazed monomaniac, and creating a character who’s about something else entirely with the instrument as a mere accessory after the fact – sometimes in the same book. But the practice of music is often equally baffling to those who live with and around musicians. Parents and family patriarchs often don’t see it as a job at all – but if it is one, it’s a disgraceful one. Some find it hard to believe that a band can really break up bitterly over whether a number is best played in A Flat or G, and must invent deeper, darker tensions. Others (who regularly change up their own jobs when career satisfaction diminishes) expect the same group of players to stick together for life, churning out the same repertoire simply to please them. Others again become adoring fans, who elevate their human musical heroes into supernaturally awesome Marvel ones, too good for any of their colleagues, spouses or friends…To outsiders, music is a baffling business.

Permission To Be Yourself by Seton Hawkins July 9, 2018

To follow the recordings of Cape Town-based vocalist and composer Nicky Schrire is to watch an artist evolve right in front of your eyes. With her 2012 debut Freedom Flight, Schrire demonstrated a supple soprano vocal technique and a knack for intelligent arrangements of unusual repertoire choices. Following it up the next year with Space and Time, she showed an uncanny ability to pare songs and performances down to their very essence, cutting away to reveal emotional truths in the pieces and singing them with an unvarnished and understated mastery. Additionally, canny listeners hearing each album also noted in Schrire a remarkable composer stepping to the forefront, as her albums began to allot more time to her original works.

By 2014, Schrire had released her third album To the Spring, marking a massive artistic evolution and shift, one that would ultimately find her leaving New York City for her home in Cape Town, transforming her performance style, and embracing a more Folk-driven aesthetic. Nevertheless, throughout these transitions, the core of Schrire’s singing remained. Brandishing a clear, pure sound and a delivery that avoids affectation or overly stylized tactics, Schrire delivers music of astonishing expressive depth.

Bob James To Release New Solo Album
August 31
will see the release of the new album from multiple-Grammy winner Bob James. Titled “Espresso” and released on the Evosound label, the album will be Bob James’s first studio recording in 12 years as leader and following up on his 2006 release Urban Flamingo. The release of this album also see’s Bob James’s return to the trio format he embraced as an up-and-coming artist.
When asked about his motivation for the album and why he choose the trio format he said “I wanted to do this as part of a trio — piano, bass and drums. “With Fourplay and in other larger settings, I loved that I could solo and then kind of disappear into the setting to accompany other soloists. To play in a trio requires a different level of commitment, with the piano being much more prominent. You need perhaps a greater degree of optimism and bravery. That was how I felt when I first got into music. Espresso is my attempt to recapture that.”
Though busy since 2006 an array of projects, ranging from touring and recording with the all-star contemporary jazz ensemble Fourplay to collaborations with David Sanborn, Keiko Matsui and other innovators, James hasn’t felt the need to be in the spotlight as a solo performer – until now.
Bob James is best known as one of the stalwarts of the 1970′s contemporary jazz fusion scene collaborating with Earl Klugh, Grover Washington Jr and David Sanborn to name just a few. While recording his album, Grand Piano Canyon, in 1990, James reunited with longtime friend, drummer Harvey Mason, Jr. It would also be the first time he would work with guitarist Lee Ritenour, and bassist Nathan East. This meeting would be the start of something substantial as these early sessions ignited a spark that would become the band known as Fourplay. This band would be at the center of Bob’s activities until the present.
Inspiration for the Espresso album stems from a week-long engagement with sensational young bassist Michael Palazzolo and the respected veteran drummer Billy Kilson at the Blue Note last October. The musicians felt an immediate chemistry as they tackled standard repertoire as well as new James originals. Audiences sensed it too. “Soon everybody there was encouraging me to have the guts to jump in there and do this,” James recalls.
Two months later, the group reconvened at Bragg Street Studios in Van Nuys, California. In just one day James, Palazzo and Kilson laid down the varied tracks that comprise Espresso. Two covers were on the list: an ear-opening reconfiguration of Fats Waller’s “Ain’t Misbehavin” and an equally fresh perspective on “Mr. Magic” (which James had arranged and conducted on the 1975 Grover Washington session) and a stream of original material.
The rest of the tunes, penned by James, reflect the same inventiveness and musical fluency that persuaded Quincy Jones to become his mentor and champion back in 1963. His expressiveness through both writing and performance permeates the rocking minor-key blues of “Bulgogi,” the definitive cool jazz of “Topside, ” the funk strut of “Submarine, ” the whispered beauty of “Promenade, ” the turbulent, more complex yet supremely listenable “Mojito Ride” and every other moment on Espresso.
“Submarine” the first single to be released, is a great example of James’ classic sound paying tribute to 1974’s “Nautilus”, while perfectly blending in the fresh, complex and rich textures of Espresso

Al Di Meola Receives Honorary Doctorate at Berklee’s campus in Valencia
Berklee Provost Larry Simpson presented an honorary doctor of music degree today to legendary jazz, fusion, and world music guitarist, composer, bandleader, and producer Al Di Meola during the commencement ceremony for the master’s degree programs at Berklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain. Di Meola also performed as a special guest at the commencement concert at the City of Arts and Sciences on Saturday, which drew thousands of attendees.
Over a career that has spanned more than four decades, Di Meola has recorded more than 30 solo albums, including Land of the Midnight Sun, his 1976 debut; Elegant Gypsy, which hit the Top 5 on Billboard’s jazz albums chart in 1977; and 1978’s Casino. He has also appeared as a guest artist on over 50 recordings. At 19, after attending Berklee, Di Meola joined Chick Corea’s pioneering jazz fusion group Return to Forever. He recorded three albums with them, hitting the Top 40 on Billboard’s pop albums chart. He later collaborated with John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucía. The guitar trio’s live album Friday Night in San Francisco sold 7 million copies.
“Collaborations with other players outside of your realm can ignite a new frontier, ” Di Meola advised the graduates, reflecting on his time with Return to Forever and recording with de Lucía at Electric Lady Studios. He also shared his experience with tango master Astor Piazzolla. “Getting to know him as a friend began a very important chapter of my life as a composer. It was the introduction to his music that I sensed had the right ingredients to touch the heart, and at the same time challenge me intellectually as a player, and a listener. That was, still is, my goal and what I set out to do.”
“As much as music lessons were very important at the beginning, so were the vast amount of concerts and every music category I was fortunate enough to choose from, having had the proximity to New York City during the early seventies. For me, it was the value of being able to express deeper emotions with an instrument than with words. What would life be without music, as well as all the other forms of artistic expression, I often ponder.”
To the graduates, he added, “I commend all of your dedication and the hard work you have spent during your school years, and I can imagine that many of you will go way beyond your comfort zone. In the process you will quite naturally mature as a musician.”
One of the inventors of jazz-rock fusion, Di Meola also explored Mediterranean cultures and acoustic genres like flamenco, getting closer to world music and modern Latin styles, while further expanding his horizons with the electronic side of jazz. The guitar legend has begun a new chapter in his prolific career with the release of his latest album Opus.
At the commencement ceremony, 131 graduates from more than 30 nations received master of music degrees in music production, technology, and innovation; scoring for film, television, and video games; and contemporary performance with a concentration in production; or master of arts degrees in global entertainment and music business.
“You are at the vanguard of contemporary music education, and each one of you has developed a skill set, ” said Simpson, addressing the graduates. “Some of you may be feeling a bit headstrong; some of you might not be quite sure what’s next. Life awaits you and you will have to make choices…Congratulations on your achievement today, we await the magic that you will create.”
Berklee’s honorary doctorate recipients are recognized for their achievements and influences in music, and for their enduring contributions to American and international culture. Past recipients include Duke Ellington (the first, in 1971), Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, Quincy Jones, Smokey Robinson, Steven Tyler, Loretta Lynn, Juan Luis Guerra, Annie Lennox, Paco de Lucia, Carole King, Willie Nelson, George Clinton, Rita Moreno, Lionel Richie, and A. R. Rahman. Honorary doctorates have previously been awarded at the Valencia campus to Eddie Gómez (2013), Plácido Domingo (2014), Emilio Aragón (2016) and John McLaughlin (2017).

AN OPTIONAL EXTRA QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

“Writing is a question of finding a certain rhythm. I compare it to the rhythms of jazz. Much of the time life is a sort of rhythmic progression of three characters. If one tells oneself that life is like that, one feels it less arbitrary.”  Francoise Sagan (1935-2004) French playwright, novelist and screenwriter.

We don’t live in a jazz world, unfortunately. I think if I had lived in a jazz world, I would have done OK. I’m not sure I would have done great. I’m a lover of jazz music, so I would have been happy, don’t get me wrong. I go to jazz concerts like the biggest jazz fan in world. The drag is that I don’t play jazz for a living. George Benson

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^JazzWeek Summit 2018 August 9-10, 2018 Hotel De Anza, San Jose – California Creating Jazz Radio Success in the Digital Era

Media is in a constant and accelerating state of disruption, as digital content changes the way we produce, distribute and consume entertainment and information.

Jazz radio, artists, promoters, and labels can either be left behind or they can acknowledge the changing landscape … and even take advantage of it!

The 2018 JazzWeek Summit will be tightly focused on creating success in this digital era.

To set the stage for our presentations and panels, JazzWeek is sponsoring detailed surveys and research during the spring and early summer of 2018 to gather economic, artistic, and technological data from radio and the recording industry to provide the basis for this year’s panels and to help us determine our next steps.

Our goals for this year’s Summit are to understand where we are now, take stock of the challenges we face, and to chart a course forward.

Attendance is strictly limited to a maximum of 80 people, so register early to reserve your space!

Some may remember that Renee Lee performed at the Grahamstown Festival and the then Green Dolphin with Dave Young, Richard Ring and others some years ago.

Vocalist Ranee Lee

Here is a Q&A with Ranee who seeks to honour the ‘Dark Divas’ of jazz who inspired her.She also performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival this year

Ranee Lee has been an integral part of the Canadian jazz scene since she arrived in Montreal in 1970 from her native Brooklyn, New York.

She was a multi-instrumentalist whose voice seemed to be her most proficient and mellifluous axe. Her albums on Montreal’s Justin Time label are considered classics.

Nicole Mitchell’s Downbeat award should bring her to South Africa

The Downbeat Critics Awards are out and South Africans can enjoy a slightly smug feeling. We heard the Vijay Iyer sextet before they scored that award for Far From Over, in March at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival. It was a joy – but I suppose it would be repetitive to ask that Iyer be invited back?

Standard Bank Joy of Jazz celebrates 21 years

By Peter Feldman

Standard Bank Joy of Jazz celebrates its 21st edition with a diverse line-up of all-star talent.
T Musicman, promoters of the annual jazz event, last night announced a stellar line-up for the three nights of music, which takes place on September 27, 28, and 29 at the Sandton Convention Centre.
Five stages will be used where new masters to older jazz giants of music will treat jazz lovers to ground-breaking collaborations and tributes.
The festival kicks off with a megastar one night only set of performances featuring David Sanborn, the iconic American smooth jazz innovator and multi-Grammy award winning saxophonist and composer.
The festivities will then swing into action with a host of diverse performers that include American song-stylist, Cassandra Wilson and The Horn Summit who will honour the memory of Bra Hugh Masekela on the Dinaledi Stage. This musical outfit features such illustrious names as
Feya Faku, Khaya Mahlangu, Mthunzi Mvumbu, Barney Rachabane, Sydney Mavundla, Siphamandla Bhembe and Mandla Mlangeni.
More than 30 musicians representing five continents will be serving up powerhouse music.
A highlight will be the Louis Armstrong All-star band. It features the great trombonist, Wycliffe Gordon, tenor man, Roderick Pauli, trumpeter Nicholas Payton, bassist Reginald Veal, Courtney Bryan on piano, Herlin Riley on drums. Louis Armstrong was the American musical giant who has Bra Hugh his first trumpet.
Phenomenal pianist, Amina Figarova, who is based in Holland and New York, will lead two collaborative projects. First it will be with the Thaba Jabula School Choir, and then with the award-winning South African pianists, Kyle Shepherd and Bokani Dyer on the Dinaledi Stage.
American pianist, Diane Schuur, will share the stage with the reigning Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year for Jazz, Thandi Ntuli and the Standard Bank National Youth Jazz Band on the Diphala Stage.
Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, Buika is set to dazzle jozi jazz junkies with her unique brand of flamenco fusion. The Spanish songstress will perform on the Conga stage. American singer-songwriter, Bilal will lay his retro rooted brand of futuristic soul music on the Mbira Stage.
Continental Africa will get a nod at the Conga and Mbira Stages with acts such as the afro-beat sensation, Femi Koya (Nigeria), Kenya’s Nairobi Horns and the leading voices of Mozambican marrabenta music, Wazimbo and Banda Kakana. Also in the spotlight will be singer songwriter Mbuso Khoza and Zimbabwe’s, Oliver Mutukuzi who will hold the fort along with Gugu Shezi.
Peter Tladi, CEO of T Musicman, spoke about what it meant for him and his company to step into this 21-year milestone. “Twenty-one years ago we began our journey as a jazz festival with world class ambitions. It was a challenge. Today we have the security and confidence of two decades of living up to the promises we make annually to jazz lovers.”
Thulani Sibeko, Standard Bank’s Chief Marketing Officer, said they have a clear sense of the growth of the festival and what still needs to be achieved. “We, as the headline sponsor, are looking forward to providing unparalleled access to the best jazz music in the world through our expertly curated programme and line-up. We are also excited to be able to contribute to the development of our cultural economy. The jobs created annually by the festival, and the education and training opportunities for young people on and off the stage, are all part of one vision that underpins what we mean by Joy, in Standard Bank Joy of Jazz.”
The festival, she added, made a deep social and impact by improving the lives of many young people through training and other opportunities. “We are proud to continue to partner with T-Musicman on a brand that is so proudly African and showcases a wide range of our talent from across the continent, while at the same time welcoming international talent to our shores.”

CD Review – By Eric Alan

The D.A.J.O (Darryl Andrews Jazz Orchestra) album Cape Town released December 2017.

I’ve really been fortunate throughout my broadcast career to meet and interact with so many great musicians from the entire global village, especially those from my own hometown and one such is Guitarist, Teacher, Conductor, Bandleader, Composer and Arranger Darryl Andrews. He is closing in on retirement from the renowned South African College of Music,UCT’s Jazz Studies Program.

It is very pleaseing to be able to write this review of his album, Cape Town by the D.A. Jazz Orchestra which has finally been released. The most exciting aspect of this album is apart from a few of his own compositions it features the music of other equally well known Cape Town composers which include The Late Winston Mankunku Ngozi, The Late Errol Dyers, Professor Mike Campbell and Alvin Dyers.

The band includes some of his students and friends and in the woodwind section are alto-saxophone and clarinet players Justin Bellairs and Evan Froud, the tenor saxs are played by Zeke Le Grange and Sisonke Xonti, with bariti saxophonist Georgia Jones, The horn section comprises of: on trumpet and flugelhorn Lorenzo Blignaut and Marcelle Adams with Robin Fassie-Kok, and the trombonists includes Justin Sasman, Ryan van der Rheede, Kelly Bell and Ryan Kierman. The rhythm section includes pianist Andrew Ford with acoustic and electric bassist Stephen De Souza and drummer Lumanyno Unity Mzi.

The really heavy-duty work of conducting, composing, transcribing and arranging falling Darryl’s broad shoulders, whilst guest players include Prof Mike Campbell, and both of the Dyers brothers, as do vibraphonist Bronwen Clacherty and flautist Bridget Rene. Darryl is quoted as saying, “Jazz is always changing, and it evolves as we speak. We identified with it, being from oppressed people. Look what jazz was born out of, one of the greatest human atrocities – slavery.” This can be heard in countless composers works since the birth of jazz.

The album as a whole offers a new perspective to what an African Big Band when arranging and transcribing of the original works by Winston Mankunku Ngozi, Errol Dyers, Mike Campbell and Alvin Dyers. Giving a fresh new look at the iconic pieces chosen for the album. Darryl’s own compositions can certainly take pride of place alongside these classics many of which I’ve not heard before and again gives great pleasure to hear and know that his work will finally be heard by jazz lovers, specifically big band aficionados. More power to composing and recording more original material Mr Andrews don’t let us wait for your next offering too long, no matter the bands confiuration.

I must add that I rate this album very highly. 4.8 Stars – This is an album that must be part of any selfrespecting jazz lovers collection.

Another Quote of the Week

“Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon.” Nat Wolff

CD ReviewBrian Charette Groovin’ With Big G

Review by DAN BILAWSKY of All About Jazz Website July 4, 2018
Groovin’ With Big G was destined to come about. When a young Brian Charette was cutting his teeth on jazz piano gigs in his home state of Connecticut in the early ’90s, he wound up working dates with drummer George Coleman Jr. The two struck up a friendship, and Coleman’s encouragement helped Charette make the leap to New York a few years later. Coleman even let the budding pianist crash in his rehearsal studio for a spell.

Here’s an optional extra Quote of the Week

We don’t live in a jazz world, unfortunately. I think if I had lived in a jazz world, I would have done OK. I’m not sure I would have done great. I’m a lover of jazz music, so I would have been happy, don’t get me wrong. I go to jazz concerts like the biggest jazz fan in world. The drag is that I don’t play jazz for a living. George Benson

  • JazzWeek Summit 2018 August 9-10, 2018 Hotel De Anza, San Jose – California Creating Jazz Radio Success in the Digital Era

Media is in a constant and accelerating state of disruption, as digital content changes the way we produce, distribute and consume entertainment and information.

Jazz radio, artists, promoters, and labels can either be left behind or they can acknowledge the changing landscape … and even take advantage of it!

The 2018 JazzWeek Summit will be tightly focused on creating success in this digital era.

To set the stage for our presentations and panels, JazzWeek is sponsoring detailed surveys and research during the spring and early summer of 2018 to gather economic, artistic, and technological data from radio and the recording industry to provide the basis for this year’s panels and to help us determine our next steps.

Our goals for this year’s Summit are to understand where we are now, take stock of the challenges we face, and to chart a course forward.

Attendance is strictly limited to a maximum of 80 people, so register earlyto reserve your space!

Some may remember that Renee Lee performed at the Grahamstown Festival and the then Green Dolphin with Dave Young, Richard Ring and others some years ago.

Here is a Q&A with Ranee who seeks to honour the ‘Dark Divas’ of jazz who inspired her.She also performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival this year

Ranee Lee has been an integral part of the Canadian jazz scene since she arrived in Montreal in 1970 from her native Brooklyn, New York.

She was a multi-instrumentalist whose voice seemed to be her most proficient and mellifluous axe. Her albums on Montreal’s Justin Time label are considered classics.

DON’T MISS THIS SUNDAY’S PERFORMANCE AT THE OLYMPIA Café Kalk Bay

Guy Buttery with Kanada Narahari on the sitar, this Sunday at the Olympia

With a meeting of two very distinct creative minds united by their mutual curiosity in each other’s diverse musical worlds, Guy Buttery and Kanada Narahari bring India even closer to its well established home in South Africa. In production for over 6 months, the fusing of music from both of these rich and varied musical backgrounds is rooted in Guy and Kanada’s progressive exploration of these worlds, bridging the gap, as well as re-imagining the realms existing between Africa and India. These two virtuosi’s will be bringing this collaboration to Cape Town for the first time with concerts in the city centre as well in the outlying regions and on the Peninsula.

SHARKS LOVE JAZZ

Here’s an interesting story sent to us by Gwen Ansell,

Sharks love jazz but are stumped by classical, say scientists and not it’s got nothing to do with the natal rugby team, click and read.

 

*******************************************

THE TUNE RECREATION COMMITTEE PRESENTS THE FUTURE IS NOW SADC TOUR – MAY 2018

SAMA nominated Jazz Collective, The Tune Recreation Committee’s

(TRC) international debut is in the form of a tour entitled The Future Is Now. This multi-faceted presentation in Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa will focus on collaboration and musical exchange with other artists. In each territory the TRC will present works in various forms and guises with local musicians and artists accompanied by exhibitions and performances at every stop of the way.

The Future Is Now Tour also presents an amazing opportunity for the TRC to perform for a new ever-growing audience demographic in the SADC region. By bringing the best of what the TRC has to offer, The Tour is a springboard towards building and strengthening intercultural dialogue in the region.

The Album:

The SAMA nominated album Voices Of Our Vision, by the ensemble was the only independent South African album to be ranked as one of top releases of 2017by The New York Times: “…this alliance of young South African musicians delves into the country’s syncretic cultural heritage — then ventures beyond. You hear Balkan folk, American funk, West African high life, and South African free jazz. Most of all, you hear five bristling improvisers dancing together, modelling a kind of thoughtful communion”.

“The T.R.C. (its name is a sidelong reference to the post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission) avoids the most common pitfalls in South African jazz: It’s not beholden to sunny Cape Town traditionalism, and it doesn’t emulate any specific form of American jazz.” New York Times

The TRC features Clement Benny on drums, Nicholas Williams on bass, Reza Khota on guitar, Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet. The unit has performed to rousing applause at the 18th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival. The group takes original tunes and reinvents nods from their influences to embracing vibrant underground music scene of drum and bass to Balkanology. Fusing imported sounds and exporting to their own flavour, either going into a Ghoema -tinged feel or just improvising around the melody. TRC founder, Mandla Mlangeni describes the sound as “the playground for the interrogation, assimilation and extended extemporization from the canon of South African jazz heritage

The Tour

Tune Recreation Committee’s The Future Is Now accompanied by workshops is a dissemination of a dialogue that is severely underrepresented in the musical landscape and the broader context of Southern Africa. Specifically relating to several African music art forms within the realm of jazz and indigenous music, which share common traits in all regions.

The focus of the endeavour is one that aims to build a documented heritage resource that challenges notions of colonial bias and seeks to expand a narrative of musicians, composers and artists through their own perspectives.

“Ours is an attempt to create a sustainable platform and network for composers and musicians in a pairing of creative partnerships and collaborations with artists residing within the SADC region”, says Mandla Mlangeni.

TRC’s The Future Is Now : SADC Tour is supported by Concerts SA and the ANT Funding Grant from Pro Helvetia Johannesburg financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

Short Notes to Note #No 8

by Eric Alan of Tuesday 15th May 2018

Please feel free to share

========++++++++========

Jeez, where has the year disappeared, huh! I mean we’re halfway through May already very soon we’ll be seeing the retail store putting up their Christmas decorations and other such paraphernalia, yep it go up earlier and earlier annually, doesn’t it does it?

I’m trying to make sure I go live on air in the studio 3 times a week, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, difficult as it might be it going to happen from next week. I’m still trying to reorganise my day’s workload and I think I’ve finally managed to crack the problem.

Your help has been instrumental in achieving this and for that I must thank you all. Hey don’t think this is the time to back off, keep up doing it. The formula we’ve adopted that I’ll post a list artist and album titles that we’ve receive and added to our playlist in any particular month irrespective of the year of release. All we ask is that you choose 48 artists and the albums title from the list and post it on our All Jazz Radio Facebook Groupor email it to us at music@alljazzradio.co.zaplease remember to give us your full name, where you’re from city, tow, country and your contact number. You’ll become a vital cog in the wheel of my program The Jazz Rendezvous Radio Pinotage, Coffee & Stockvel Showas an associate producer. Like that huh! You’ll also get the credit for your choices during the show too. I’ve decided, for this coming Thursday’s show that’s of 17thMay we’re going to post the list artist and album titles for the month of January 2018.

Remember many of the artists you may not have heard of before so be bold and make your choice and I’ll choose the track from your choices. We do need a total of 48 choices from the list for that day, and any list submitted that contains less that the required number will automatically be disqualified.

In January we added 106 artists with their album and a few singles titles to our playlist. Lets have fun, as you become a member of the Jazz Rendezvous Radio Pinotage, Coffee & Stockvel Show team. It’s an interesting mix of music for you to choose from welcome aboard let the fun and games begin, I kook forward to your list.

The Klutz In The Kitchen’s Recipe n’ Foodie, Grub n’ Cooking News & Reviews

The Rambling Words, Wisdom & Wit, if any, of a Self-Confessed & totally confused self taught Klutz In The Kitchen and his Recipe of the Week – Begged, borrowed and stolen from recipe web sites around the global village.

The Klutz has become a bit of a nag, ‘cause he’s champing at the bit to make his renowned Mutton Tomato Breedie once again, but he can’t because he made two huge pots last week, Aunty Sarah’s world Famous Pea and Bacon bits Soup and Beef ‘n Potato Curry which we’ve not been able to finish as yet, still go loads left over, but finish it we will ‘cause it just so damned lekkerlisious. Yesterday we had the Curry so to day it’s Aunty Sarah’s world Famous Pea and Bacon bits Soup, which may please the Klutz and shut him up for a while, we hope.

Jinne, food prices just keep skyrocketing and the VAT increase has not helped at all. Worst of all we don’t see decent increases for social pensioners or pensioners at all, nor do se see decent salary increases. How does one survive in this day and age, huh! The rich just keep on getting richer and us working class folk must just keep trying to survive.

Something that has become something of a major pet hate is this thing by a supermarket chain offering a “free discount/money back guarantee” on the bottom of the till slip on ones next visit to their stores. It is pretty much a con as far as I’m concerned, not so? The kind cashier generally reminds one not to forget to bring the till slip back on ones next visit to get the “free discount/money back guarantee” saving at the bottom of the till slip.

Free really? However this is the major flaw for most shoppers, this “free discount/money back guarantee” thing how many shoppers really bring the slip back, and that’s the rub. I for one never know when I’m next going to visit the store and never have those pesky till slips on me. It’s a clever ploy to manipulate us shoppers back into their clutches.

I did speak to a local regional manager about my misgivings and he explained of the philosophy, which in reality is to simply to get feet through the door in the face of their opposition. Ok, that may be good for them because us poor sap’s just keep falling for these tricks. What is the real, true value of this kind of chicanery to the shopper? Not much at all me think’s. How many of us keep those till slips handy. I believe like most price conscious pensioners and shoppers, check the weekly pamphlets that accompany our local knock and drop newspapers assiduously for where we’ll find the best special’s available. I’d for one would rather see direct discounts applied to the products rather than the wishy washy wool over the eyes “free discount/money back guarantee”. What do say you, let us know your views on the, as I believe, rather dubious practice.

************************************

My next gripe is the plastic carrier bag, which we shoppers pay for, where does the money spent on those bag go? Can the plastic bags I say or give me the option of paper carrier bags instead. What do you think? This is a debate for another day.

************************************

It is not often that the Klutz makes a fish dish for dinner; now, I do really enjoy yummolicious Haddock Mornay from time to time so this is our for this week’s, that is quite easy and simple.

Try this Haddock Chowder recipe that our splendid Klutz found on the Spar Website. I must agree it look lekkerlicious and believe it will be very tasty, best of all it’s a very quick ‘n easy recipe that any Klutz can cook up a storm. Go get the stuff to make it today. It will surprise the recipient of you invite to dinner. We hope you’ll enjoy this recipe with a fine white Pinotage.

Serves:6 – Prep time:15 minutesCooking time:25 minutes

Stuff to make it

  • 20 mlcanola or olive oil or margarine
  • 1 small onion, chopped or 2 small leeks, well rinsed and sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed finely
  • 1 litre hot water
  • 55g packetwhite onion soup powder
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 2 boxes frozen haddock in cheese sauce (400 g), thawed in the fridge

How to make it

  • Gently sauté the onion, celery and sweet potato together in heated oil or margarine.
  • Mix the soup powder to a thick paste with a little cold water. Add in the hot water and pour it all into the vegetables, stirring until it thickens. Crumble and stir in the stock cube. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes until the potato is soft.
  • Slide the contents of the fish pouches into the soup. Loosely break up the fish pieces into chunks, and stir in the sauce, cooking gently until the fish is cooked through.
  • Check seasoning and serve with a fresh crunchy French bread slathered with real butter and a crisp green salad.

Hints and Tips

  • Suggested seasonings: fish spice, freshly ground black pepper, dried

Enjoy

Buon Appetito

Eric and The Klutz

A Blog Supreme

All Jazz Radio’s Eric Alan’s musings, ranting’s and mutterings about some tittle-tattle, chit-chatter of this, that and the next thing and maybe some other interesting blather about the World of Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz, is now posted on the All Jazz Radio website.

*******************************************

The Quote of the Week

“Certain jazz musicians just copy what was done 100 years ago. The music won’t grow if nobody takes a risk.” – Trombone Shorty

Sjoe Saturday was my first foray back on the radio again in what must be a year or so. Due to the heavy workload at AJR, being a small volunteer online jazz radio station with no resources at all. BTW should you be so inclined and wish to make a donation to help us with keeping AJR live on the air, please drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you and find out how you can assist us.

Huge thanks must go to our Cape Town based volunteer producers and presenters who give so willingly of their time and effort and so diligently produce their shows live from my small spare bedroom studio and lounge work and storage space. Thanks too, to our international volunteer presenters and producers who send their shows to us each and every week for our streaming broadcast.

There are two presenters who need to be singled out and given all sorts of kudos and accolades for the long hard working service to AJR and they are;

Brian Currin has been involved in the music industry for years and has an encyclopaedic mind filled with knowledge of blues, rock and jazz from around the global village. His speciality is focused on South African blues and rock. He can be found plying his trade and passion at Mabu Vinyl, which is the record, CD, DVD, cassette, book and comic store in Gardens, Cape Town. He presents and produces Vagabond Blues, which is a show of mixed blues and jazz beyond the fringes from Africa & the Global Village and is based in Cape Town

WolfgangKönig is a broadcaster, writer, jazz festival world traveller and frequent visitor to the CTIJF and many other jazz festival and events around the world. He is the presenter and producer of Jazz Around The World, and is based in Berlin, Germany. Wolfgang’s show is a mix of various styles of jazz from around the world but with a focus on the European jazz scene.

Both Brian and Wolfgang were there from the beginning of our first streaming broadcast.

Clifford Graham is an old colleague from the early days of independent community radio broadcasting in Cape Town. He presents the show Take 5 & Then Some. The show is amix of Mainstream, Nostalgic, Vocal & Pop Jazz with a smattering of balmy natter the odd live interview, theatre, movie, music news and reviews weekly.

James Kibby is a full time working musician; producer and music teacher who presents his very interesting and at times some what controversial program, The Kibby Factor which takes one on a musical journey to the outer bound of jazz and beyond.The show is made up of Acid, Avant Garde, Electronic Jazz, and Blues. Doing what and going where most men fear to go, bravely, beyond the realms of whatever comes into his ever inventive and fertile mind.

Andy Hardy vintage vinyl and cd collector, and I might add like me a beer nutter, who scours the world for the music he produces and presents for his program The Groove Merchant. Andy is from Ngongotaha in New Zealand though he travels extensively for work, which also gives him the opportunity to find those rare bits and pieces. The show features Groove, Fusion & Funk Jazz from down the ages.

The husband and wife team of Jeff Williams & Kari Gaffney produce and present Modern Jazz Today from Evans, Georgia in the USA. Modern Jazz Today is a radio show that gives this generation of improvisational music makers, standard’s arrangers and original composers a place to have their music heard by the global village today. Jeff compiles and produces, both he and Kari present the program. Kari is a jazz musician and runs her own company that promotes jazz albums promoter to the jazz radio stations in the US and the world, we have been working together for over 20 years

Well know Jazz Vocalist Todd Gordon produces and presents Todd’s Turntable from Edinburgh in Scotland, it is a vocal jazz show with his choice of music from across the centuries up to today). Todd Gordon is one of the UK’s acclaimed jazz/swing singers and radio presenters.

Rhys Phillips formally compiled, presented & produced A Slice of Jazz from Cardiff, Wales, UK. His new show,Birdland is produced and presented from his new home in France where he has moved to because an of an excellent job offer. The show is an eclectic mix of Jazz, Interviews, New Album Releases, CD Reviews from the UK and Europe.

We must not forget our hard working webiterCarol Martin too. Carol reports and writes reviews on live events and albums for our website which we are currently re-evaluating to see how we can make it better for your enjoyment.

We are mobile, so you can take us with you wherever you may go and enjoy the best Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz music from the South Africa, Africa and the rest of the Global Village any day, all day.

Would you like you to join the AJR Family and become a volunteer radio presenter? Just drop us a line to info@alljazzradio.co.zagive us a list of 20 artists, albums and tracks from those albums you’d include in a program Also you must include a biography of yourself, what your day job is and most importantly your phone number. If you live in Cape Town and environs you’d be expected to come into our studio for a chat. If outside of Cape Town you must in all contact details as well.

Should you wish to make a donation, please contact us as well.

Restaurant Review

Pescarne, Main Road, Hout Bay

Late last week there I was beavering away at the keyboard and the phone goes, breaking all thoughts of what I was doing. To my pleasant surprise it was the sultry voice of a very dear friend whom I had not seen for quite sometime saying they had arrived for their regular holiday in Cape Town. She asked me to join her hubby and his sister to join them for lunch, which I gladly agreed to. They had lived in Hout Bay some twenty and then some years ago and had returned to Europe after a number of very happy years of living here. Now I have not been on that side of the mountain for a really long time, so was excited at the prospect of visiting the area again.

 

 

Yesterday, Tuesday, I headed for the Republic of Hout Bay, remembering how bad the traffic and access was I made sure I left with plenty of time to of arriving with a little time in hand to pick them up. On arrival at the Beach Club and joined them for a cup of coffee and catch up before heading out for lunch. The chosen venue was discarded due to the extreme windy conditions, and went on a search of Cheyne’s in the old village, which had been recommended by a friend of my lunch hosts. Finding parking and getting ready to walk to the restaurant, we were asked by the friendly manager of the close by Pescarne, if he could assist, and we told him we were looking for Cheyne’s and he pointed us in the right direction, quickly looking up the info on Zomato found they weren’t open for lunch. Never having been there before, we were invited by the manager to check out Pecarne.

 

 

There is a large outside deck area, again due to the wind we elected to sit inside the large dining area. The waiter introduced himself, Jimmy was his name, and presented with a number of laminated menu’s. After looking through and discussing the options, we ordered our drinks, a glass of red for my mate and myself, which we later found out to be Spier Signature Shiraz at R35 per glass, My host had to glasses and I had one. The ladies opted for a couple of glasses of Spier Brut Sparkling at R59 per glass and a small bottle of sparkling water at R15. I though good chance after all the fuss about water in restaurant to ask for a glass of tap water, Jimmy immediately asked if I would like ice and lemon to which I said yes please. Good start not so?

 

 

The menu was quite extensive and covered all bases, breakfast, burgers, steak, , Seafood, Shellfish, Greek Cuisine, Salads all pretty reasonably priced. My companions decided on the seafood option with my host and his sister opting for the Baby Calamari he with Chips and his siter with Baked Potato at R79, my host’s wife on finding out the line fish option was either Cape Yellowtail or Dorado, decided on the latter at R99 with salad instead of chips stating she’d not had it in a long while. Both of the fishes are on the SASSI Green list. I decided to go the Carne route and ordered the Beef Trinchado at R79, a favourite of mine. I then asked Jimmy if the chips were fresh or frozen, he was unsure and hesitant, but said fresh, being the sceptic with that answer decided on the baked starch instead.

 

 

The food arrived, with the Calamari looking reasonably good but the chips were the frozen variety, The line fish, was not Dorado at all but a couple of fish fillets of indiscriminate type and totally dry, fried and not grilled as requested. The Trinchado was not much better swimming in some sort of spicy pinkish orange liquid with the meat tough really awful, BTW it came with a bowl of those frozen “chips” instead of the baked potato as requested. I tasted and immediately sent it back and eventually the “Dorado” was also returned. I was not asked is I would like anything else but saw the kitchen was fussing over another portion of Trinchado and said I was not willing to have the dish again and again not asked if I wanted something else from the menu, to late I said my friends had already finished their meal.

 

 

Coffee and Espresso at R18 each, sent mine back as the cup was chipped and the crema was almost black, second cup was much better with the crema the right colour.

 

 

A very disappointing lunch at Pescarne and I asked for the owner to voice our complaints. He eventually arrived at our table apologising profusely laying blame at the feet of his new Malawian Chef who came with good references. I asked if this new Chef had cooked his signature dish and a dish from the current menu, you’ve guessed right, no he had not. That’s not the way one hires a Chef, on paper and telephonic references at all. A few other excuses were used by this time I was so over the discussion. They also had an extensive. Sushi menu and there was a Sushi Chef on duty as well. Jimmy had tried his best, but was lacking in training, not his fault, and he did not know what the food was like on the menu. When I chatted to him a little earlier. When I was in the trade I made sure all of my staff tasted everything on the menu over a period. When a new dish was due to be added to the menu the entire staff, from waiters/waitresses right through to dishwashers all tasted and gave their opinion and that opinion was highly regarded. Will I go back to Pescarne after the abortive disgusting lunch, the answer is yes as I always promise to do.

The Avenue Restaurant and Grill

It was one of those day’s, students doing their #Tag thing, a muggy Thursday and whilst beavering away at the listening to newly arrived music which were to be added to our playlist I had some fat finger trouble and suddenly there was this beautiful, mouth watering picture of a thick juicy steak all over my computer screen. Were the food gods being crazy to lead me off the work path, ‘cause this revelation led me to think what the Klutz was going to prepare for dinner. Quickly casting aside all thoughts ot the Klutz getting behind the hot stove and mostly because there was no steak fixings in the apartment at all. Then it happened, yep the word Avenue popped into my mind, eureka, The Avenue Restaurant and Grill. It was a total random spur of the moment choice, so hopped into the mechanical chariot and headed over the bridge to 2nd Avenue.

 

Once parked entered the emporium and greeted by smiling friendly wait staff and was led to our table the charming waitress Perpetua and left with the menu after placing a drink order. Not being in an alcohol frame of mind opted for a soft drink instead. Looking through the wine menu an was very happily surprised to see that all wines on the list were well under R200 per bottle. At last a restaurant where the wine costs more than the food one is to consume. Timer to start a #tag restaurant wine prices must fall movement, eh!

 

The food menu was also very reasonably priced and was informed by the affable waitress that the chips were hand cut from real potato’s, so on the advice of Perpetua and being quite hungry, decided on the 350gm sirloin medium rare (R145) with chips and also came with “roast” veg which I turned down, can’t stand them see, never had a good experience with “roasted veg” We were immediately offered a side salad instead which was gratefully accepted and also ordered a side of onions (R28) as well.

 

My order duly arrived in good time and looked good on the plate with the chips, onion and salad in side dishes, so far so good. Cutting into my steak was like using a blunt butter knife, tender as a ripe avocado. The first mouthful was juicy and very tasty, the basting sauce used was flavourful and did not detract from the meats flavour but enhance the taste experience. A truly wonderful piece of steak, best I’d had in a very long while. The salad was fresh and very tasty with their homemade salad dressing.

 

Now for the sad part of this tale, the chips were very oily and horribly verlep. This is often due to the raw chips not being rinsed off under fresh water and dried before being thrown into the fryer or the oil was used one time to many or not hot enough. Not much good can be said about the onions either, the batter was cooked hard, and one could if not careful chip a tooth on the horrid things. Nuff said if that.

 

The coffee was very good and rounded out a pleasing steak and salad meal, The Klutz in the Kitchen was satisfied with the friendly service and will be back in the near future.

Klutz in the Kitchen Confessions

 

August – Coffee and Deli Harfield Village Kenilworth

 

Sjoe feeling quite industrious at the moment this is the second review I’m writing today, now as one may gather I love living in the Southern Suburbs and going to discover some of the food emporia in Claremont and those radiating outwards from our home base. Now listening to the new album by Cape Town Chartreuse Amanda Tiffin Consideration currently just a six track promo EP with the full album due next week prior to the her launch concerts on Friday 13 at the Nassau Centre (Groote Schuur High School) at 20.00 and on Sunday 15 November 2015 at 19.0at The Reeler Centre Theatre (Rondebosch Boys High School) South African Jazz is really in a good place now.

 

Ok back at the G & GA again (Gin & Ginger Ale my Late Dad’s Favourite tipple) so refreshing on a muggy day in Ol’ Cape Town, hey theres a song in them that words somewhere. 🙂

 

This is a review of a new little place that opened in 2nd Avenue’s famous restaurant row about a month and a bit ago. The August Coffee and Deli is a little emporium that wishes it could I guess. My first visit was to reconnoiter the place and being a deli had a look at the meat and veg products on offer. So far so good, neh! While browsing around and asking questions about their expectations and philosophy for the place which was simply to provide residents in the area with the best produce they could find so I ordered a coffee and also got myself a nice piece of Rib eye and a half a kilo of mince. Both items were cooked by the Klutz over the ensuing days and were really very good and of great quality, best of all reasonably priced far better than Frankie Fenner Meats that has recently opened in the area.

 

On the strength of my first small meat order I ordered a couple of Lamb Shanks and a few day later popped in once again to check on my order that sadly have not yet arrived. I was there, and again fell under the aroma of their coffee and decided to order their much-touted burger. The restaurant side of the business is tiny as is the blackboard menu they have some pasta’s and salads on the menu as well, all reasonably priced. They however didn’t serve any chips on the day of my visit.

 

The burger came and was the same size as the bun, which they get from Knead just up the road and mixed salad greens underneath the burger patty, but no tomato or onion. The first bite was delicious the meat was perfectly cooked medium rare and very tender. The basting sauce was tasty but I’m not to sure if it that was homemade? Had a commercial flavour to it. I also asked what spices were used in the burger and was told coriander, paprika, cumin and salt and pepper all of which were extremely subtle and hardly there, could be the BBQ sauce overpowering the flavours. Sadly the ubiquitous wooden board was once again, like so many other places used, as a serving vehicle for the meal, shame about that and hope that chuck the things into their next braai fire and get proper crockery to serve on. At 30 bucks for the burger, was a treat.

 

As to my Lamb Shanks, after being assured that they would have then in a few days and would called to let me know of their arrival. Still waiting for a call as this this little issue is now well over a month old. Guess I’ll just have to go give them a real bollocking.

Truth Coffee – Cape Town

 

The Klutz made a Haddock Mornay for dinner last night, which was very good by the way and had a nice little Chateau De La Doos Sauvignon Blanc from the Robertson Winery to accompany the meal, yummoloicious it was too. I took a portion of it to Mum and dropped it off a wee bit earlier for her lunch. On arriving home decided it was time for a lunchtime G & GA (Gin & Ginger Ale) before sitting down to write this review and listen to the brand new sophomore album by the group Deep South called Heartland and get to write this review of Truth Coffee which was visited some si to seven weeks ago. Pleasant way to kill two birds with on stone, neh! The talented twosome of David Ledbetter and Ronan Skillen are to launch the album next week, Saturday 14th Nov 2015 at The Reeler Theatre in Rondebosch from 19:30 – 22:30.

 

It’s not often The Klutz in the Kitchen ventures out of the suburbs but was forced to due to a technical problem with his Lap Top. So decided to continue the quest of finding the best coffee in the Cape and headed to Steampunk HQ, Truth Coffee shop, after finding street side parking ambled over to the packed joint’ I was greeted by the cheerful smiling and very affable floor manager Haley who showed me to a table. I was offered the breakfast menu having arrived a half hour or so before the menu change and being a first time visit I asked for the lunchtime menu to peruse too. I asked about the coffee and what her recommendation was and she suggested the Resurrection blend, which was agreed and ordered with cold milk on the side. The cold milk was a safety measure, just in case the beverage turned out awful.

 

Looking through the very grubby and dirty photo copied menus; hands feeling quite dirty after handling the clipboard things. Got to carry some wet wipes for occasions such as this. Besides, what’s it with this grubby method of presenting menu’s these days. It certainly ain’t trendy at all and is very off putting.

 

Jovial waitress Neli brought my coffee after a long wait and told her I couldn’t make up my mind between The Croque Monsieur or the Steampunk Benedict could she make a suggestion, she immediately stated she enjoyed both so was difficult for her to choose. Mmmm, not much help I said with a smile. It all boiled down the difficult choice of the Bayonne Ham or the crispy bacon. Ok, so you guessed which won out eh, the bacon naturally. So Steampunk Benedict was ordered along with another cuppa nice java.

 

When the food arrived it looked really good and tasty but my expectation was lowered drastically on seeing the blerry wooden board, which was bedecked with some greaseproof paper on which the Sourdough toast with two softly poached eggs, crispy bacon and hollandaise sandwich and topped assorted greens was placed. First bite was quite lekkerlicious so cast my misgivings about the wooden board to the back of my mind, though not to easy must say. It was a pleasant meal with very nice coffee with good service in an interestingly decorated space with a pleasant bustling old world atmosphere, but still the search continues for that perfect cup of coffee.

 

Will be back again sometime in the future.

Loco Lounge Harfield Village Claremont

My 86 year old Mom had a really bad fall late last week, her being a fanatical gardener, she was heading inside to answer the phone (landline) when she attacked by the garden hose, you know the problem with these pesky garden hoses, they get quite ornery from time to time when neglected. I took her to her quackter on Friday for a check up. Mom’s quite ok but looks like she’s been through a round or two with Laila Ali, she’s is quite a trooper. So the Klutz in the Kitchen made a huge pot of Aunty Sarah’s Truly Excellent Pea and Bacon Stoup, her favourite, last night and delivered it to her this morning. Hope she’s going to enjoy it and will relieve her of cooking duties while she convalesces. Aunty Sarah’s Stoup somehow works better than any amount of chicken soup see.

After stopping off at the supermarket to get a few much-needed victuals, it was a total spur of the moment decision to head to the Loco Lounge in Harfield Village to have a bite. Having read and heard so many great reviews and reports about the little place.

On walking in I was greeted by Dexter, the very affable and charming waiter on duty and led upstairs to the dining area. Impressive and inviting simple, clean lined décor with interesting denim tablecloths decking the tables. I was the only soul in the place at the early lunchtime. The menus were somewhat tired and grubby raw cardboard with a few grease spots and someone had written something intelligible at the bottom of one of the clipboard presented menus. I felt the urge to wash my hands after touching them.

On being handed the Lunch/Dinner menu I was told the Steak and Line Fish was not available at lunchtime and only available at dinnertime. Ok then so why have it on the menu then, huh? I then asked the big question, fresh or fake frozen chips, the answer, fake frozen. Blerry hell I thought, that really spoilt my first impression of the place. I also had a good look at the very tacky and overpriced photo copied wine list, really atrocious. The cocktail list was just as boring and plain, nothing jumping out saying try me try me. The list of cocktail’s can be got at any average cocktail bar anywhere in Cape Town. The one surprising thing was the beer list, mundane though it is. The Amstel price of 20 bucks was the cheapest of all other beers on the list. Having been put off by the drinks menu I ordered a cup of coffee and the Loco Burger to munch. There was no indication that the meal came with any starch or salad at all, they did however have a separate sides and extras section, which included “Skinny Fries”. After being asked if I wanted any extras and enquiring if anything else came with the burger I was told that “skinny fries” came with the burger. Mmm, makes me wonder is it a ploy used by restaurants at large to get punters to order the paid for extras and are only told if enquiring whether the meal comes with anything at all. A little dishonest don’t you think?

The coffee arrived on an interesting saucer, more like a tray and rather unique, the beverage was hot and not too bad at all. My burger arrived looking a little anaemic and flattop fried as opposed to grilled. Before chowing down I cut a piece of the burger patty off to taste, there was a total lack of seasoning but there was also a strange sourish taste to the damn thing. Can’t describe the flavour and it also left an unpleasant aftertaste in my mouth, which a gulp of the coffee could not remove. The much bragged about bun was toasted and tough, seemed like a day or two old. Not a good lunch at all, damn still got that hellish taste in my mouth as I write this despite rinsing with a couple of glasses of water once I got home.

There was no ownership on duty at the time of this visit, so told Dexter of my concerns and disappointing experience.

Grub Review

======+++++====== 

Who doesn’t enjoy a good curry, huh! Some say the best Durb’s curry can only be found in, well, er, um Durban. Well, got to say the Klutz is one of those quirky grub nutters who just doesn’t like curry; he just has a weakness for a really good one, it’s Klutz Kryptonite, see. All right then, I know this is Cape Town, the Gatsby and false tooth Kingdom of Afrika, and don’t we all know there is a whopping difference between the Kaapse and Durbs curry varietals, all ‘n all.

 

It was with great glee that I discovered a new little place, to me, a couple of months ago in my home range of Claremont, Belvedere Road to be precise, called Nice ‘n Spicy. On entering the tiny space the aroma’s engulphed warmly and rapping one in a blanket of gorgeous flavours, immediately my mouth began salivating in anticipation of what was to come. It was a surprise to see a well-known face, apron bedecked somewhat rotund character behind the counter. Hey I’m rotund too, so no slight intended, comes with age see. Former Cape Town radio DJ, Lee Downs, yes and somewhat surprised, as I did not know he had any cooking aspirations or credentials at all.

 

We started chatting, catching up on occurrences of the past few years, then the inevitable question arose, what does a former radio personality do after the glitz and glamour of commercial fades? Easy answer, he said, he is a food lover and has been for years, so what better than to open a place that features homemade nosh from his childhood. Bunny Chow, a multiplicity of Curry’s, Solomes, Samoosa’s, Hamburgers, Homemade Pickles and what has become a firm favourite of mine, the Pulled Beef Marsala Sarmie, totally morish, but beware it’s highly addictive, though I’m a large fella could not finish two in one sitting. There is a small seating area, very small, being a take away, so I sat down to enjoy the Sandwich, yummolicious, mouth tingling, telling me it was enjoying the spicy concoction. I promptly ordered another to take home for dinner later.

 

Been back a couple of times and eventually tried the Bunny, which was large, tasty, spicy like a good curry should be. I couldn’t finish off the container, the contents however did not last long, full of flavour it was, the only drawback was the lack of potato in the heady spicy mutton stew, only a small piece of the starch was included. Not to serious an infringement in the Klutzes eyes but will make sure to ask for extra potato’s on the next visit.

 

I highly recommend curries and specially that wonderful Pulled Beef Marsala sarmie, but I will have to have a good strong talk and boxing match with myself when next visiting, ‘cause I’ve got to try some of the other menu items.

The Klutzes Grub Rating for Nice ‘n Spicy is ★★★★ = Enjoyable, pleasant and satisfactory, worthy of a visit from time to time.

The Kluze in the Kitchen really enjoyed the meal, mainly ‘cause he had a cooking day off, a lekkerlicious salad starter followed by a delicious Venison meatloaf with vegetables and rice and mushroom sauce with a creamy pie for dessert then relaxing on the patio with a cheese platter and finishing off homemade Limoncello. Must say Mom enjoyed very much now the pressure is on to find a suitable place to take her for lunch on Wednesday in the Rondebosch, Claremont, Kenilworth area. Got any suggestions?

Here’s some great new and always exciting to here about a new release by a great vocalist.

Giacomo Gates Celebrates The Release of His New CD “Everything is Cool”

Gates approaches jazz singing with a showman’s poise and an aficionado’s zeal. With his deep, cognac baritone and his vintage-hipster lexicon, his phrasing and his bearing, he upholds a distinctly masculine ideal of deceptively easy nonchalance. Gates is known as the modern day heir to Eddie Jefferson, the godfather of vocalese. Here he uses the style sparingly, but to great advantage. never showboating by using the challenging technique. Backed by his go-to pianist, John di Martino and guitarist Tony Lombardozzi leading the rhythm section and Grant Stewart out in front on saxophone, Giacomo sings and swings his way through a dozen tunes – some familiar favourites, some rarely heard gems. He may be soft and subtle or he may be hip and humorous but one thing Giacomo Gates is not, is predictable.

So you’re a Hummus and a beer fan are you? Well now the good news is that you can indulge in both all at one time, in a glasss. An Israeli brewery, the Meadan Craft Brewing is now making Meadan Chickpea Malt Ale. Why you may ask? They wanted to make a kosher-for-Passover gluten-free beer, and did, so now hummus fans can rejoice by raising a glass of the favourite food.

======+++++======

Today is National Apple Betty Day in America!

Celebrate today, hey any apple pie is good any day, but The Klutz In The Kitchen thinks that the date should be changed to the 7th October, why you ask, it’s the head hocho’s Moms birthday on that day and here name happens to ne Betty see. Any how the Betty is a crustless apple pie seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. An apple brown betty is a common variation, which includes layers of sweetened breadcrumbs.

This classic American dessert dates back to the colonial period and probably evolved from the traditional English bread pudding. The name “brown betty” first appeared in print in 1864 when it was mentioned in a Yale Literary Magazine article.

In honour of National Apple Betty Day, bake your own version of this scrumptious dessert and top it with lemon sauce, ice cream, or whip cream. Yum!

October 5, 2015 is also Simchat Torah, World Habitat Day

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – 02 October 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1An AJR BLOG SUPREME copy

The weather gods are really very fickle, gorgeous cloudless sky in the African Jazz Capital, The Mother City of Cape Town, though chilly morning, but a shorts and flip-flops day for sure. At least the washing will get dry too.

The second day of October, sjoe, and is birthday celebration month of my Mom and Late sister Jenny would have be 62 and Mom turns 88 this month. Now starting to plan where we going to celebrate, Last year I took her and her Brother to the Hussar for lunch. Both enjoyed the meal and celebration there. Now, here’s the question do we return there again this year or find a new place to go to. Got any suggestions?

This year has been a really storming year so far, musically speaking, we received so many great new album by a veritable galaxy of Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz stars it’s going to be very difficult to choose my Top 50 album releases of 2015, and there’s still another three months left to make the right choices, but there are still many more to be released.

Jazz Music LogoI must acknowledge the people who have kept us up to date with all those new albums also introducing us the so many new artists and important bio information over the past years. In alphabetical order big thanks go to the following;

Ann Braithwaite, Brian Hurst, Cindy Budd, Dawn De Blaze, Jim Eigo, Joshua Ellman, Kari Gaffney, Kate Smith, Katherine Growdon, Kenny Tlale, Lisa Reedy, Lynda A. Weingartz, Mark Rini, Michael Carlson, Natty Goehring, Richard Anton and Shaunna Machosky, plus all of the independent musicians who have contacted and sent us the albums, both locally and internationally.

Klutz in the Kitchen

Klutz in the Kitchen

The Klutz In The Kitchen is gearing up to fire up his old slow cooker, which he has finally reclaimed from his Mom, who he discovered has never used it since he loaned it to her 30 or so years ago, been gathering dust in the back of one of her kitchen cupboards, see and saves buying a new one. Now cleaned up and looking like brand new, he is eager to get going, but he is looking for recipes to use and the first is a really good recipe for Lamb Shanks. Now, if you can please help, please send your Slow Cooker recipe to The Klutz In The Kitchen soonest. Looking forward the hearing from you.

I discovered another ex South African who lives in the UK and am trying to get his CD to put on our play list soon. Here is his bio taken from his website;

Philip Clouts Quartet UmoyaPhilip Clouts was born in South Africa and brought to Britain as a baby. His father, the poet Sydney Clouts, was a great fan of South African music and throughout Philip’s childhood the house resounded to the strains of Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba and township jazz. It was the pianists who particularly caught Philip’s ear, especially Abdullah Ibrahim and Chris McGregor, and that’s where it all started.

Philip Clouts is founder member, composer and pianist in Zubop ‘that spirited, hugely enjoyable jazz outfit, which takes the whole world of music as its home territory’ (The Observer). 4 CDs have been released on 33 Records and performances have been in a wide variety of venues and festivals in the UK and Europe, including WOMAD, Glastonbury, Berlin Worldbeat Festival, Brewery Arts Centre, Exeter Phoenix, Frankfurt Sinkkasten, and London Vortex.

Zubop developed into ZubopGambia, collaboration with BBC World Music award winner Juldeh Camara and other West African master musicians, which has done two major UK tours and headlined at festivals. A concert at Ronnie Scott’s, London, where they “managed to raise the roof” (Roots magazine) was released as a live album.

Other work has included playing with virtuoso folk fiddler Chris Haigh in Klezmania, a group playing Klezmer music with elements of jazz improvisation, and touring with singer Gary Howard of the Flying Pickets.

Philip has released a trio CD of his compositions entitled “South “which was praised in Jazz UK as “An enormously enjoyable set of accessible but distinctive originals. Like the compositions, Clouts’ solos are thoughtful and persuasively structured”

Since 2007 the Philip Clouts Quartet has been a major focus of his composing and playing.

The new CD Umoya (titled from the Zulu word for life force), features rising star Samuel Eagles on sax and is one of the first wave of releases on the new jazz imprint from prestigious classical label Odradek Records.

On this album, Clouts’ African inspirations extend beyond Cape jazz to Gnawa music and Afrobeat, and further to pan-European folksong, soul-jazz and even drum ‘n’ bass. Joined by saxophonist Samuel Eagles, bassist Alex Keen and Yamaha Jazz Scholarship-winning drummer Dave Ingamells, he brings his musical journey alive with superb musicianship and infectious vigour.

“Eagles’ phrasing lends itself perfectly to the immediacy of Clouts’ melodic writing, and to the conversational nature of the group as a whole…the end result is one of attractiveness with the added headiness of exotic flavours and joyous, dancing rhythms.”  Rob Adams

The album release will coincide with a tour of England and Scotland including dates at Bridport Arts Centre (23 Oct) the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh (26 Oct), The Blue Lamp, Aberdeen (29 Oct) the Capstone Theatre, Liverpool (30 Oct) and a London album launch at Café Posk on Saturday 17 October.

Fried Scallops DayFried ScallopsA scallop is a type of marine mollusc in the Pectindae family. Scallops are typically two to five inches in size and can swim by rapidly opening and closing their shells. The muscle used for this activity is the only part of the animal that we eat.

Scallops are a highly prized seafood delicacy, known for their delectable taste and the variety of ways in which they can be prepared. In Japan, for example, scallops are served in soups or prepared as sushi. In Western cultures, scallops are usually breaded, deep-fried, or sautéed in butter.

To celebrate Fried Scallop Day, enjoy some delicious fried scallops from your local seafood restaurant. Bon appétit!

The Klutz in the Kitchen’s Straight Talkin’ No Punches Pulled Restaurant, Bisto, Cafe, Pub, Food Truck, Street Food & Take Away Grub n’ Cooking Maguffta Reviews 

======+++++====== 

The Klutz decided it was time to gallivant around the neighbourhood again, this time in search of his groovy, celebrated hero’s much loved food, Lasagne. We refer to that goofy cat Garfield naturally, and to find that beautiful baked concoction perfected by the Italians who gave it to the world at large to enjoy with a good bottle or two of wine, Pinotage of course and some freshly baked bread to soak up the delicious sauce.

The search was narrowed to Kenilworth, where we found ourselves sauntering through the doors of Bardelli’s, which we’d not been to before. We were pounced, ok not really, accosted didn’t sound like the right word to use, so pounce it’ll have to stay, by a waitress, who we later found was the manageress and quite fetching she was too. She took us through a number of inter-leading rooms, with tables and an outdoor cover area at the back, bigger than it looks at the storefront.

I decided the we’d like the table I’d spotted in the front room which was quite busy with a sports team and parent celebrating the good season they had. On being seated was asked what we’d like to drink. I said Pinotage, she said yes they had a great house brand bottled for them by Beyerskloof, I said I’ll try a glass. She sauntered off to get the vino while I perused the menu, unnecessary but being a first visit i deemed it was.

When the wine arrived I placed the order for Lasagne and a Garlic Pizza, then found out they had some Beyerskloof Chenin/Pinotage Blend in stock too, and something very rarely found in restaurants. Not being a big white wine drinker, this was one I always make an exception for and ordered a glass of it too. The evening looked very promising.

The Garlic Pizza arrived looked good and was the thinnest I’d ever come across and though, sjoe, too good to be true ‘cause that just how I like my Garlic Pizza, great start and contentedly started munching. The Lasagne arrived steaming hot, good sign, but still had to pass The Klutz In The Kitchen’s famous and exacting great Lasagna Test, oh alright, it’s simply a knife stabbed into the centre of the dish, the tip must be piping hot to the tongue, if not it, fails and is sent back with the promise of not returning to the venue again in a hurry. Pass it did and was one of the most yummolicious Lasagne’s I’d had in a long while.

Good food, wonderful wine, but sadly the only downer was the coffee, nowhere near good at all, in fact blerry awful and horribly bitter. All in all a fantastic evening of really great food and marvellous wine, we’ll just forget about the coffee and have a Kahlua Don Pedro next time. Oh, and Bardelli’s is near the top of my go to Italian food joints. Lasagna rule’s OK.

The Klutz In The Kitchen Recipe n’ Foody Goodies, Utensils & Titbits News Blog – Wednesday 23rd September 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1The Klutz In The Kitchen’s Recipe n' Foody Goodies, Utensil Review & Titbit News Blog

The day before National Heritage and Braai Day, what does one do, huh! And with the Rugby World Cup games starting on the goggle box today, well what to do, preps of course, that’s what. It’s all about research. Like any good radio presenter we tackled the braai day Braai the belovedtask, pardon the pun, with gusto and found some great Braai Recipes on a number of websites and decided to put together a few for one to choose from. Have fun and make your choices wisely and be sure to be prepared for the celebrations

What is your favourite meat to slap on a sizzling braai. Here are my personal choices, it’s difficult task to choose, but choose I must so hear goes in order;

T-Bone, because you get the fillet and sirloin together in one go, remember too the they should be at least 5cm thick

Lamb Leg Chops should be at least 3cm thick

Sirloin should be at least 4cm thick

Lamb Cutlets should be at least 3cm thick

Whole Sirloin

Pork Belly Strips

Chicken Thighs

Chicken Legs

Pork Bangers

Sosaties

And finally a Whole Snoek when in season

Grabouw Boerewors

Grabouw Boerewors

You ask why is Boerewors not on the list, well it is and really deserves to be categorised under its own name see, and variety is your choice. The Klutz goes for Grabouw Wors, but who remembers Morris the Butcher in Town, I mean the wors was just the best.

The Klutz in the Kitchen has really been hard at work and found some truly splendid and exciting braai recipes from drinks to starters to main dishes and desserts

++++++++++++++===============++++++++++++++

Here are some of the Klutzes drinks suggestions;

Well it’s a no brainer really Beer, Heineken or Windhoek are the choice of the Klutz, and Pinotage is the wine of choice. However our first recipe is one that will act as an accompaniment with any dish braaied (barbequed) and alcohol additive on the day; mind you it can also be enjoyed on its own with lots and lots of ice. Thanks to Woolies Taste Mag and Abigail Donnelly for this simple ‘n quick recipe. Please note it only serves 4 so one will have to adjust to make much more to satisfy your thirsty friends and family

Braaied lemonade

Braaied Lemonade

Braaied Lemonade

Serves
4

Prep Time 
5 minutes

Cooking Time
 15 minutes

Ingredients

20 lemons

150 g brown sugar

100 g white sugar

Ice, for serving

500 ml soda water

Method

Halve the lemons and dip the cut side into the brown sugar. Place the lemons, cut side down, on a braai grid over medium heat coals.

Turn when the lemons are charred and almost blackened. Braai for a further 5 minutes, then place in a large bowl

Once the lemons are cool enough to handle, squeeze the juice into a jug. Add the white sugar to the lemon juice and mix until dissolved.

Add lots of ice and top up with soda water.

Tastes take: When life gives you lemons, make braaied lemonade. We love the rich flavour created by charring the lemons. It’s easy to make once your coals are going, but handle with care as those lemons get hot! For a twist, you can add a splash of bourbon.

++++++++++++++===============++++++++++++++

A non-alcoholic suggestion is for a colourful bright Sunset Cocktail, which is also very moreish and thirst quenching.

Sunset Cocktail

Sunset Cocktail

Ingredients

Lime cordial

Plain water ice-cubes, crushed

Grenadine syrup

Apple juice or Pink Lemonade

Orange juice blend

Pomegranate juice blend

Method

Pour lime cordial into ice-cube trays and freeze.

Spoon crushed ice into each glass (optional).

To mix the cocktail, vigorously combine a handful of lime cubes with orange juice in a shaker. Pour into each glass.

Slowly pour on some pomegranate juice, onto the back of a spoon held just above the orange juice layer.

Do the same with the pink lemonade or apple juice, to fill the glass.

Pour a few drops of Grenadine syrup on top and allow it to slowly sink through the other juices and create a 3-tone sunset effect.

Serve immediately with a stirrer and/or straw.

Hints and Tips

There is no strict proportion of ingredients for this type of cocktail; we used approximately one-third of each of the three juices.

Have all the ingredients, glasses and utensils ready in front of you before starting, for smooth preparation and perfect results.

Don’t deviate from this order of adding ingredients, or the effect of the colours will be lost. Do not mix before serving.

Do not expect the lime cordial to freeze hard and pop out of the mould as water would.

Chakalaka soup with boerewors balls recipe by Jane Anne Hobbs Rayner

Chakalaka is a highly spiced African vegetable relish usually eaten cold as an accompaniment to braaied meat, but here I’ve transformed it into a chunky soup brimming with punchy flavours. Topped with juicy mini-meatballs made from boerewors filling, this is a dish that will bring tears to the eyes of chakalaka devotees (especially if you increase the quantity of fresh chillies in the recipe).

Chakalaka, said to have been invented by Johannesburg’s migrant mine-workers (although I can’t confirm this) usually includes chillies, peppers and curry spices, plus – depending on who’s making it – carrots, beans, cabbage, and so on.

You may be wondering why I’ve turned a relish into a soup. Well, because I love soup, I really do – to distraction. (And I’m a little annoyed that winter is over in the Southern Hemisphere, because it means the end of soups – at least hot, rib-sticking ones – until next year.) Also, I like turning recipes around to see what happens. This soup is good on its own, but the little meatballs make it really special. (And I’m grateful to my friend Nina Timm of My Easy Cooking for showing me how to make instant boerie balls.)

You can leave the baked beans out of the soup, if you like (as I did in the photographs, because I wasn’t in the mood for beans) but I recommend including them because they help thicken the soup. If you can’t find authentic South African boerewors, use a raw, loose-textured sausage and, before you roll it into balls,  mix in a teaspoon or so of toasted, ground coriander, plus some of the spices listed in this recipe.

Although it’s best on the day you make it, you can prepare soup a day in advance. For best results, though, fry the meatballs just before you serve the dish.  This is also very good with chopped green beans and cauliflower florets. If you don’t have tomato juice, use a tin or two of chopped Italian tomatoes and a little tomato paste instead.

The chickpea flour and spices are used to give the meatballs a nice, toasty crust. Chickpea flour, also known as channa flour, is available from spice shops.

Chakalaka Soup with Little Boerewors Balls

Serves 8

45ml Sunflower oil

4 carrots, peeled

3 small green peppers, finely sliced lengthways

4 onions, peeled and finely chopped

1 stick celery, finely chopped

1 green or red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped (or more, to taste)

4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

30 ml grated fresh ginger

6 large, ripe tomatoes

1 litre tomato juice (the sort you’d use for a tomato cocktail)

750ml water or vegetable stock

2 tins baked beans in tomato sauce

10ml medium-strength curry powder

7.5ml cumin

Salt and milled black pepper to taste

125ml finely chopped fresh parsley or coriander

For the Boerewors balls

500 g slim boerewors, or similar sausage

125ml channa [chickpea] flour

5ml paprika

2.5ml turmeric

Heat the oil in a large pot. Dice two of the carrots and set the others aside. Fry the diced carrots, pepper slices, onions, celery, chilli, ginger and garlic over a medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes, or until softened but not brown. Roughly chop the tomatoes, place in a blender and pulse to form a rough purée. Pour the purée, the tomato juice and the stock into the pot and cook at a brisk bubble for 30 minutes, skimming off any foam as it rises. Stir in the baked beans, curry powder and cumin, season to taste with salt and pepper and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

For the meatballs, squeeze the boerewors filling from its casing and roll into balls the size of a marble. Combine the channa flour, paprika and turmeric on a plate and lightly roll the balls in the mixture. Fry in hot oil over a medium heat for 4 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper. Coarsely grate the remaining two carrots. Serve the soup piping hot, topped with hot frikkadels, grated carrot and a shower of parsley.

What to do

Go for a oval shape sourdough bread as opposed to a round one. This way all the slices will be the same size. Slice the bread fairly thin, the same thickness as normal toaster bread. One has a natural tendency to slice these types of bread thicker, so be conscious of avoiding that.

Lay out half of the bread slices on a cutting board and liberally spread with the French style mayonnaise and whole grain mustard.

Add the gypsy ham, slices of cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and chopped spring onions. Do not be stingy with any of the ingredients, this is a super luxury braaibroodjie and not only should the quality of ingredients reflect it, but also the quantity.

Add the top layers of bread and drip or spread olive oil on them.

Place in a hinged grid (toeklaprooster)  and braai over medium-low heat coals. After the first turn, also spread olive oil on the other outside, the side which was at the bottom when you assembled the units. Continue to braai over the gentle coals, turning very often, until the cheese is melted and the braaibroodjies are golden brown on the outside.

It goes without saying that you serve these beauties with glasses of ice cold Methode Cap Classique. The South African – vastly superior – version of what the French call Champagne.

Chef Johan van Schalkwyk could not resist teaming this succulent wine with its subtly spicy oak nuances with a potjie of oxtail in prunes and port. Whether you are camping or treating your guests to a three-course dinner, this dish is perfect for any occasion.

The full-bodied Drostdy-Hof Pinotage is available from most liquor outlets for around R40.

Ingredients:

2 medium onions, chopped

2 celery stalks, sliced

3 carrots, peeled and sliced

2 leeks, sliced and well washed to get rid of grit

6 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

2 tins (410g) of whole peeled tomatoes

2kg oxtail

10g thyme, chopped

10g parsley, chopped

2 bay leaves

50ml balsamic vinegar

150ml Allesverloren Port

Zest of ½ an orange

50g prunes, pitted

Salt
Coarse black pepper to taste

Method:

Place a cast-iron potjie over coals and heat well

Season oxtail pieces with salt and pepper and dust with flour by rolling them in a bowl with about a cup of flour in it and shake off the excess flour

Heat the oil in the potjie and seal in all the juices by browning the pieces of oxtail on all sides Do a couple at a time and set aside

Fry all the vegetables in the olive oil until the onions are transparent. Do not brown

Add back the meat and deglaze the potjie by adding the vinegar, wine and port

Allow some of the alcohol to burn off then add the tomatoes and bring to the boil

Scrape some coals away from underneath the potjie and allow the contents to simmer

Add the herbs, prunes, zest, bay leaves and season with salt and pepper and cover with the lid

Place two or three coals under the potjie and simmer for three to four hours. Do not stir the pot. Remove the lid every 30 minutes to check the liquid is at a gentle simmer and add some coals if necessary

Beef Wellington by Jan Braai

Beef Wellington on the Braai

Beef Wellington on the Braai

Ingredients

1 tot olive oil

1 onion (finely chopped)

250g mushrooms (finely chopped)

250ml cream

1 sprig fresh thyme

300 to 500 g steak (rump, sirloin, fillet)

400 roll of puff pastry

Grated cheese (optional)

Smoked ham (optional)

Method

Finely chop the onion and mushrooms. Add olive oil and/or butter and the finely chopped onion and mushrooms to a pan and fry until the mushrooms lose their moisture and starts to brown. Then add the thyme.

Add some or all of the cream to the pan and let this mushroom, onion and cream sauce reduce to a fairly thick paste.

Trim the steak of your choice (rump, sirloin or fillet) of all sinews and fat and braai over very hot coals for about 8 minutes until medium rare. Let the steak rest a few minutes and then thinly slice.

Unroll the thawed puff pastry on a cutting board. Spread the mushroom and cream paste on half the surface of the pastry and lay the slices of steak on top of that. Generously season with salt and pepper.

Optional step: finely chop smoked ham and grate some cheese. Add this on top of the current residents of the puff pastry.

Fold the uncovered half of the pastry over the filling and use a fork to press all open sides of the pastry closed and seal it.

Now braai in a hinged grid over medium coals for about 20 minutes until ready. You want the pastry golden brown and crispy and all ingredients heated and melted throughout. As puff pastry braais there will be a moment where it seems to ‘melt’ and sag into the grid. Don’t panic. After this it will firm up again and start to cook.

The Klutz has called this recipe The Poor Mans Beef Wellington, which is really Justin Bonello’s braaied Beef Wellington

Think of this as a giant steak sandwich and definitely something for the boys to enjoy.

The Poor Mans Beef Wellington, which is really Justin Bonello’s braaied Beef Wellingto

The Poor Mans Beef Wellington, which is really Justin Bonello’s braaied Beef Wellingto

Ingredients:

A small handful of coriander seeds

A small handful of mustard seeds
Lots and lots of peppercorns

A couple of cloves

About 4 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped

A good pinch of Maldon salt

1 beef fillet

A drizzle of sunflower oil

1 government loaf (this is a whole loaf of bread that you buy from your corner shop)

Plenty of butter

Method:

First, you’re going to make a rub using the ingredients. Take equal amounts of coriander and mustard seeds and about double the amount of peppercorns. Put it all in a mortar and pestle and add to that a couple of cloves, garlic and a good pinch of salt. Bash everything together until you have a nice, crumbly rub

Next, take the whole fillet and coat the meat generously with the rub, pressing it into the flesh

Make a fire and when the coals are moderate to hot, put the fillet on a grid and drizzle a bit of sunflower oil over it to get the flames leaping

Cook the meat on all sides for about two minutes a side, drizzling oil and allowing the flames to lick the fillet as you go. Once sealed, remove the fillet and allow to rest

Next, take a whole white bread loaf and put it on a table so that it faces up, and cut out the top rectangle. Keep that rectangle for later then hollow out the rest of the bread

Take butter and smear it generously all over the inside. Stuff the fillet into the bread. Take the bread crust you cut out earlier and use it as a lid where the hole is. Now take tinfoil, wrap about two layers around the bread and braai it on the (hopefully now-ready) coals for about 15 minutes

When you take it off the braai, the bread should be toasty and when you cut it open, the fillet should be medium rare. If the bread isn’t toasty enough, remove the foil and let it bake on the open coals, like you would do with braai broodjies, turning it every now and then until nice and toasty.

This should feed about four relatively hungry men or one Karoo farmer.

If you’re really strapped for cash substitute the fillet with a couple of minute steaks instead, but make sure you don’t overcook the meat!

Easy snoek braai with chili sauce

Easy snoek braai with chili sauce

Easy snoek braai with chili sauce

Ingredients

1 large snoek, cleaned

1 lemon, sliced

1 onion, sliced into half-moons

A handful of coriander

5 tsps of olive oil

2 tsps of butter

Heavy gauge tin foil

Method

If you’re a pansy like me, you’ll have bought your snoek cleaned, gutted, and decapitated. This means that the assembly is simple: roll out a large piece of foil onto a baking sheet or large breadboard (don’t cut it yet) and drizzle some olive oil onto it. Now place your fish on top of the foil, and layer your slices of lemon and onion into its cavity. Sprinkle as much coriander as you dare on top of the slices, drizzle generously with oil, and (carefully) close it up. If you’re particularly worried about it being dry, you can cut slits into the skin (at an angle, so as not to snap any bones) and slide a sliver of butter into each of them.

When it comes to the wrapping, more is more. You don’t want your buttery fish-juice to drip out onto the fire, so be careful to wrap it as water-tight as you can and place it onto a medium-hot fire.

Give each side 10 minutes on the fire, then sneakily check it by prodding a fork into the flesh and twisting. If the flesh flakes, it’s ready. Well done!

Mozambican chilli sauce

This is thick, spreadable, utterly delicious, and goes beautifully with snoek (and most fish, in fact). It’s easily made from ingredients available at any Mozambican market; but it’s not the typical thin peri-peri sauce that you might have met at a roadside stall. If that’s what you’re looking for, have a look out for Jan Braai’s Peri-Peri Sauce.

Ingredients

1 onion, diced

1 red pepper

1 large tomato, diced

8 to 10 bird’s eye chillies, chopped

3 Tbsp of chopped garlic

Juice of one lemon

2 to 3 tsps of honey

A handful of coriander, chopped

Cooking instructions

Fry the onion in a generous amount of olive oil on a medium heat until soft, then add the garlic and chili. After about two minutes, add the tomato and bell pepper and simmer until soft.

After about fifteen minutes, add the lemon juice, honey and coriander, and mix well. Simmer for another five minutes or so, until the honey has caramelised a little.

If this is more than you can finish in one sitting (fair enough: it’s powerfully hot stuff) you can cover it with olive oil and keep it in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Salads

Classic Caesar Salad

Classic Caesar Salad

I love a good, simple Caesar salad , remember that the true Caesar salad is a salad made up of romaine lettuce and croutons dressed with parmesan cheese, lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and black pepper and nothing else.

The salad’s creation is generally attributed to restaurateur Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant who operated restaurants in Mexico and the United States, Cardini was living in San Diego but also working in Tijuana where he avoided the restrictions of Prohibition. His daughter Rosa (1928–2003) recounted that her father invented the dish when a Fourth of July 1924 rush depleted the kitchen’s supplies. Cardini made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the table-side tossing “by the chef.”

According to Rosa Cardini, the original Caesar salad (unlike his brother Alex’s Aviator’s salad) did not contain pieces of anchovy; the slight anchovy flavour comes from the Worcestershire sauce. Cardini was opposed to using anchovies in his salad.

In the 1970s, Cardini’s daughter said that the original recipe included whole lettuce leaves, which were meant to be lifted by the stem and eaten with the fingers; coddled eggs; and Italian olive oil.

The above was drawn from Wikipedia

Common ingredients in many recipes:

Romaine or cos lettuce

Olive or vegetable oil

Fresh crushed garlic

Salt to taste

Fresh-ground black pepper

Lemon or lime-juice, fresh squeezed

Worcestershire sauce

Raw or coddled egg yolks

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Freshly prepared croutons

The best damn potato salad recipe by Kati Auld

Although a braai is ostensibly about the meat, it’s the quality of the side-dishes that makes a braai into a feast. Everyone’s got their favourite twist on a potato salad recipe: some folks are passionate about the inclusion of hard-boiled eggs (shudder) while others say that the key is roasting the potatoes, not boiling them. This recipe’s secret weapon is nutty, buttery, roasted garlic, and it’s a life-changing addition.

I like to keep this veggie-friendly, especially when it’s just an accompaniment to piles of sticky-sweet pork chops, Garlic-Butter Steak, or Lamb Curry Sosaties: but if the thought of pigless potato salad hurts your soul, you could add bacon. If you want a salad that actually has leaves in it, you must just check out Justin Bonello’s mushroom and potato salad

The best damn potato salad

The best damn potato salad

Ingredients

1 kg of potatoes

1/3 a cup of mayonnaise

1/2 a cup of sour cream

2 tsps of chopped chives

2 heads of garlic

3 tsps of olive oil

Method

Peel the papery outer layers of each garlic head, leaving the individual cloves intact, and slice off the top of each head of garlic, and about a quarter-centimetre of each clove.

Drizzle the garlic with olive oil, trying to ensure that it goes between the cloves.

Wrap the garlic heads in tin-foil and roast them at 180 degrees for 45 – 60 minutes.

While that’s going, cut potatoes into quarters and boil until soft, approximately 30 minutes.

Once your garlic is browned and sticky (like in photo below), let it cool slightly and then carefully remove each clove, add to a bowl, and mash them with a fork.

Add your sour cream, chives and mayonnaise to the roasted garlic paste, and mix well.

Once the potatoes have cooled slightly, pour the roasted garlic mayo-mix over the top and mix well. Season to taste.

Serve in a pretty bowl, with some chives for garnish if you’re fancy.

Braaied Chocolate Mallow Pud

Braaied Chocolate Mallow Pud

Braaied Chocolate Mallow Pud

Ingredients:

An enamel coffee mug/ metal cup/ clean tin can (to put on top of the braai)

A packet of Marie biscuits/Digestive biscuits

A packet of marshmallows

Caramel treat (you could use bar one/mars bar instead of buying a tin of caramel treat AND a chocolate)

A chocolate of your choice

Custard

Method

Crumble one or two Marie Biscuits or Digestive Cookies into a metal cup or enamel coffee mug.

Add one or two Marshmallows (one white & one pink), add a few spoons of caramel treat, sprinkle on a few chunks of chocolate bar and top with Custard.

When the coals of your fire are on their last legs, put the cups on a very low heat under a suitable lid like a Weber lid or a box that has been lined with tin foil.

Leave the cups under the lid for about 5 minutes or until the marshmallows have turned mushy and the chunks of Chocolate have melted.

Remove the cups from the fire with a glove, dishcloth or paper napkin (the handles of the metal cups will be hot!) and enjoy by scoffing it down with a big spoon.

Braai Roasted Brandied Clemengolds

Braai Roasted Brandied Clemengolds

Braai Roasted Brandied Clemengolds

Recipe by Sarah Graham

Preparation time: 5 min

Cooking time: 10 min

Ingredients

4 Clemengolds, halved, with peel intact

4 tsps of brandy

8 tsp of Muscovado sugar

Vanilla bean ice cream, to serve

You will also need a baking tray lined with a double layer of tinfoil.

Method

Pre-heat your braai grill to med-high. When it’s hot, place each clemengold half cut-side down and grill for about 45seconds – 1 minute. Remove and place the clemengold halves in an ovenproof baking dish, cut side facing up.

Sprinkle each half with a little brandy and muscovado sugar. Place the baking dish on your lined baking sheet and cook for 7-10 minutes until the sugar has melted and the clemengolds are just starting to bubble.

Chef’s tip:

Using a sharp paring knife, slice around the inside of each clemengold skin so that the segments are loose before you cook them, this will make them easier to remove, which means you’ll be able to get to them faster. Believe me, they’re so delicious that things could get messy.

Thanks to Sarah Graham.

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1An AJR BLOG SUPREME copyIt was a hell of a game, so the Nation is in mourning at the stupendous loss by the Springboks against the Japanese on Saturday and blame is being cast around by one and all. Enough I say, it was the first game of the Rugby World Cup, other big teams have done the same against the so called minnows of the rugby world. Well done to Japan, they had done their homework. Coach Eddie Jones orchestrated his charges into a giant killing machine. The Japanese team played like world-beaters throughout the entire game totally stunning the Bokke. Earlier in the week in discussions about the Rugby World Cup I had said that we should not underestimate the Japanese with, in my estimation, Eddie Jones is one of the most underestimated coaches in World Rugby today. Once again congratulations to Eddie and his team. I do believe that the Japanese must be watched and will bring bigger surprises during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Does this mean I’m no longer going to support our boy’s in the coming games HELL NO.

The Klutz in the Kitchen is still sulking and looking quite pissed off since the loss, he’s really taken it very badly, so I’ve banished him to the kitchen, again and told him to cook off his disappointment, don’t know what he’s going to come up with today, we’ll see later. Must say the Kramenaatjies he made over the weekend were very yummolicious. At lest he’s also got National Braai Day to preoccupy him too.

Yep, we’ve got National Braai (Barbeque) Day to look forward to on Thursday 24th September, which will sort out all thoughts of rugby doom and gloom, it’s only the start of the campaign.

The phrase ‘first-call trumpeter’ could have been invented for Noel Langley. He is a ubiquitous presence and sound in top-flight bands and ensembles (the list is simply vast) Until now, he has never led a group in a live concert in his own name. The first public performance of his composition “Edentide” at the Cockpit is therefore a big occasion. He explained the background to Sebastian Scotney:

The Klutz In The Kitchen Recipe n’ Foody Goodies & Titbits News Blog – Thursday 17 May 2015

 

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1The Klutz In The Kitchen Recipe n' Foody Goodies & Titbits News BlogIt’s getting to that time of the year when important choices need to be made, tough ones they are too. jeez, lots to ponder upon. I never really like this time of the year, but I guess both choices are and can be good, though mixing them isn’t a very good idea at all. I’m talking about two of my three favourite liquid refreshments, Beer and Pinotage. Summer is really good for beer but then again so is Pinotage under certain circumstances, I like to chill the Pinotage in the freezer for a wee bit, and never put any ice into any wine at any time, just a quick freeze chill will do it. Now the moral of this stunning disclosure is that no choice is really necessary ‘cause given the right occasion the choice will be made by the circumstance not the time, because it’s midday somewhere in the global village, therefore it’s drinking time.

Heritage day falls on the 24th September and is also known as National Braai Day (Barbeque Day) Get the braai ready it’s going to be a wonderful meaty, beery, Pinotage and potjie day to remember.

It’s National Apple Dumpling Day, an unofficial find holiday observed in the United States on September 17 of each year. However the Klutz in the Kitchen has decided it should be also included as an unofficial food holiday in South Africa too. The day celebrates the food item it is named for. Apple dumplings are fruit dessert.

These dessert items are made from an entire apple, which is cored, has butter and sugar added and is wrapped in dumpling dough before baking with a syrup. Apple dumplings may have additional flavourings added like rum or vanilla. The dumpling may be made from scratch or from purchased dough. The apple dumpling is the subject of a festival each year in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania.1

National Apple Dumpling Day History

Apple Dumpling Day Photo by Chef Lee

Apple Dumpling Day Photo by Chef Lee

Dumplings are first mentioned in print documentation in the 17th century. These ancient food items were found in many cultures and included grains, vegetables, and fruit. Dumplings in ancient days were steamed, fried, and boiled depending on the food item and the culture. Dumplings range from small bits of dough like gnocchi to finger noodles like spatzle. In Europe, larger dumplings were made using local seasonings. Dumpling mixtures varied using flours, cereals, stale breads, potatoes or cheeses. 2 There is no documented mention of the evolution of the dumplings to the current day baked apple dumpling.

Celebration of National Apple Dumpling Day may involve learning to make the fruit dumpling for those who have never prepared them. If apple harvest season has begun, the day of celebration could include a trip to the orchard to pick apples to be prepared. Easy apple dumpling recipes using crescent rolls may be considered for use if children will be helping to bake the dessert. In areas where apple festivals and apple dumpling festivities are observed during the apple season, local restaurants may offer apple dumpling desserts for special sales on this day.

Todays Recipe

Beef Stroganoff or Beef Stroganov (Russian: Бефстроганов Befstróganov) is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with smetana (sour cream). From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe. Read more at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff

This is a quick .n easy version of stroganoff, using beef fillet thats seasoned with mustard and brandy instead of paprika. It takes no time to cook and it’s wonderfully tender and delicious – makes an expensive cut of meat go a long way too. Serve with noodles if you like, or some chips go down a treat. If you prefer, you could use some well-trimmed sirloin instead of fillet.

Totally yummolicious.

Recipe

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

600g beef fillet

25g butter

1 onion, thinly sliced

250g button mushrooms, thinly sliced

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

400ml beef stock

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 heaped tbsp soured cream or crème fraiche

1 tbsp (or more) brandy (optional)
squeeze of lemon (optional)

finely chopped parsley

sea salt
to taste

freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method:

First prepare the beef fillet. Cut it into slices ½–1 cm thick, then slice these into strips about 1cm wide. Season the meat with salt and pepper and set it aside for a few minutes.

Heat the butter in a large frying pan. Add the onion and sauté for 2 minutes, then add the mushrooms and continue to cook until both are soft. Stir the mustard into the pan, coating the onion and mushrooms thoroughly – we find it easier to add the mustard at this stage than to mix it into the stock. Pour the stock into the pan, then leave it to simmer until the liquid has reduced by about half. Stir in the crème fraiche and set the pan aside for a few minutes.

In another large frying pan, heat the vegetable oil. When it’s smoking hot, add the strips of beef. Fry, stirring continuously, until the meat is browned on all sides. This should take about a minute at the most. If you want to flambé the beef, put the brandy in a ladle and carefully heat it over a flame. When the alcohol starts to burn off (you will see the fumes), tip it very gently towards the flame and it will ignite. Immediately pour this over the beef and give it a quick stir. Stand well back when doing this and be very careful.

Reheat the onion and mushroom sauce, then add the beef. Check the seasoning and add more salt and pepper to taste. If you find the sauce too rich, add a squeeze of lemon. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Durban Street Food Festival celebrates heritage

Publicity Matters

09/16/2015 10:20:17

A Durban Street Food Festival will be held in Morrison St and Environs on Heritage Weekend from 24-27 September.

Living the wise words of travel blogger Deborah Cater who aptly said: “You have to taste a culture to understand it,” there will be a festival of Durban Street Food over the Heritage Day long weekend, at Morrison Street and surrounds in acknowledging Heritage Day and honouring the city’s diverse cultures.

The Durban Street Food Festival will offer an extensive showcase of some of the city’s most interesting food, culturally specific fare, home grown staples and meals respecting various special diets. A diverse range of vendors and foodies will be displaying and selling their wares over the weekend, encouraging visitors to sample new and interesting food: organic fresh veggie dishes; “walkie-talkies” chicken street food; coconut water; craft beer; bunny chows; shisa nyama; halaal; vegan and vegetarian fare and avocado dishes. The organisers have also included sponsored stalls for local disadvantaged street traders to ensure that visitors can experience a truly unique and authentic range of fare from the streets of Durban.

The Festival will particularly showcase food representing Durban’s various diverse cultures, as well as food typically representing the cuisine of our city’s sister city networks.

Although food is the focus of the festival, the city’s many cultures will be further honoured through its performing arts – with a stage showcasing Durban’s finest – from jazz to hip-hop; comedy to acoustic; contemporary to traditional, in music and dance. The activities will include street dance battles to small theatre performances, comedy and musical acts and DJ’s. They will be hosting a series of workshops and presentations focused on food and street culture in Durban.

A feature on Heritage Day – which is alternately known as “National Braai Day” – will be a Guinness World Record attempt at the longest time spent braai-ing. Media personality / comedian Masood Boomgaard and friends are attempting to braai non-stop for 90 hours in a charity endeavour.

The festival programme and entertainment line-up will be family-friendly during the day, and will segue to a party atmosphere as the sun sets.

In essence the event is about showcasing Durban’s diverse authentic heritage, through its food and culture.

Jazz tones from Three Cohens

09/16/2015 10:00:28

Jazzaholic by Don Albert: The world’s No 1 clarinet player Anat Cohen, has played at Joy of Jazz before, but this time she will be coming out with her two brothers.

They are trumpeter Avishai and soprano saxophonist Yuval, she herself will be playing tenor saxophone and clarinet. Her use of the tenor in the lower register is to fill out the sound. “We‘re going to have great musicians with us, pianist Yonathan Avishai, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Ulysses Owens Jr., who is part of the Christian McBride trio.”

She says the sextet will be playing music from their recent CD titled ‘Family’ as well as some compositions which will be presented a cappella by just the three horns, trumpet, soprano and tenor. It’s like a conversation between us, this way we’re presenting our music in a very intimate way. Our original music includes a nod to Louis Armstrong and other jazz giants such as Charles Mingus.”

She makes no bones about how she feels about her younger brother Avishai. “I think he is the best trumpet player I have ever heard. He can play anything from hard bop to avant-garde and has a beautiful tone, on a recent TV programme he was jamming with Hugh Masekela.” What about Yuval her older brother? “I think he is one of the most original voices (on his instrument.) He had a big influence on Avishai and me. He has an original way in working with changes (chord sequences) and his playing is very melodic orientated. He’s bringing his wife, who was born in South Africa, with him.

“We all have our own bands, so when we meet up we’ve found a way to work together by using a common thread, which is quite easy having grown up with the same music.

“We are very excited about bringing our music to the people of South Africa.”

The Three Cohens will appear at Joy of Jazz on the Diphala Stage on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 September. Booking is at Computicket.

Don Albert is an ex-saxophonist and jazz journalist. He spent 12 years with The Star Newspaper on the Tonight! section writing about jazz. He has presented radio programmes on jazz and was the presenter of the TV series Jazz Studio. He has served on the panel for judges at prestigious competitions. He has also won numerous awards, the latest being A Judges Commendation in the 2013 National Arts Festival Arts Journalist of the Year Awards. Presented by Business and Arts South Africa. It read: For outstanding work as an arts journalist over a sustained period, and for his invaluable contribution to the Jazz Industry through incisive, knowledgeable and passionate reporting.

Guy Buttery & Gareth Gale music dining evening

Shweshwe Skies

09/15/2015 13:22:52

Multiple award-winning guitar virtuoso Guy Buttery returns to Jhb with a new one-off show featuring drummer/percussionist extraordinaire Gareth Gale.

With sell-out performances nationally and internationally, Guy Buttery is Africa’s biggest acoustic music export. His recent tour of SA was voted “Top Live Show of the Year” by The Cape Times.

Gareth Gale’s extraordinary work as one of SA’s leading percussionists has taken him to premier arts destinations around the world. He draws inspiration from the African and Indian rhythms that radiate out of his home city, Durban, and is conscious of reflecting these whenever he plays.

This electrifying duo has toured France and the US together but have seldom appeared in concert in SA. After receiving yet another Standard Bank Ovation Award for “Best Live Performance” at last year’s National Arts Festival, Guy and Gareth have continued to push the envelope of what a simple duo is capable of.

Expect high dynamics, deep grooves, delicate African inflections and mind-bending guitar/drum chemistry of a new order.

hearty Goulash Soup RaithThere I was scrolling through my Twitter thinking should I or shouldn’t I, well the long and the short of it was that on the day I decided yep I would specially when I came across this picture of a bowl of soup with a message blazoned across it white chalkboard lettering Hearty Goulash Soup. Now the last time I had Goulash Soup was at the Avalon Hotel in Montague, must be 20 or more years ago. The late owner Mrs Sowade had it on her menu and was the best I had ever had, try as much as I could she would not divulge the recipe to me. Disappointed I kept searching for a decent recipe for this heart warming meaty soup, no make that stoup (a cross between soup and stew)

I’m rambling on a bit, but got to lay down the background of this story, having seen a gorgeous picture of some Hearty Goulash Soup on the Raith Facebook page, and as I was on the way to pick up the mail at Contantia Village. I though what the hell, guess as I’m in the area I might as well do it and headed to Raith Gourmet Constantia Butchery, Bakery, Restaurant, Deli, Shop in the High Constantia complex, to check out this soup.

Raith GourmetAfter picking up the mail I wondered around the Constantia Village complex, having my fill of window shopping, seeing things I wanted, but could not afford decided to head for my lunch date. On walking through the door of Raith I was immediately stopped by a waiter and asked if I wanted a table, yes I said, but first wanted to have a look around, which I duly did. Suitably impressed by the delicacies spotted on my ramble found a table and sat down, no sooner had I sat down the waiter appeared menu in hand and asked what I’d like to drink. In short I ordered a pint of Paulaner 500ml Draught, which on arrival at the table I gulped down a mouthful, thirst slaked.

I was then told of the days special. As it was a Monday, the special of the day was delicious sounding Pork Belly, slow roasted pork belly rasher with mash potato, gravy and Sauerkraut sounded good and a bargin at R85.00 for two portions, but being on my own I couldn’t justify eating two Pork Belly’s, The waiter cheerfully said I could take the other portion home for dinner. I said with a wry smile my wife would not be happy with that scenario at all. I know I don’t have a wife but thought it was a funny little joke to myself.

So I finally settled for the Pork Schnitzel, something I’d not eaten in a while and it’s served with salad greens, either bratkartoffeln or frozen chips and cranberry jelly at R75.00. I chose the bratkartoffeln because they only serve those blerry awful frozen chips, which really cheapens any restaurant into a fast food joint. Besides frozen chips are a total cop out and very lazy way of serving so called chips. Yes I’ve said it the management of Raith Gourmet Constantia Butchery, Bakery, Restaurant, Deli, Shop are lazy and sloppy and do a complete disservice to all of their customers.

The food finally arrived and being ravenous I tucked in right away. There’s another pet peeve of mine, serving a cold salad on a hot plate of food, which this was, leading to unappetising wilted salad green, luke warm tomato’s and such like and spoils the meal somewhat too. I really don’t know why experienced chefs do this, seems like they forget their basics of food prep and service.

Schnitzel RaithThe Pork Schnitzel was nicely crumbed and very tough, not sure what cut of meat it was, also not that pleasant, not bad with the cranberry jelly though, which strangely saved the day as far as the meat dish goes. The best on the plate was the bratkartoffel, sautéed thinly sliced potato rounds with crispy bacon and onions, absolutely yummolicious. Don’t know why they just get rid of chips on the menu and serve bratkartoffel or their German potato salad with all of their dishes instead. There was sadly, also an overall lack of flavour to the entire meal, I had to add lots of extra salt and pepper to coax out the flavours of the entire dish. I’m a tough critic and as the title states it’s The Klutz in the Kitchen’s Straight Talkin’ No Punches Pulled Restaurant, Bisto, Cafe, Pub, Food Truck, Street Food & Take Away Grub n’ Cooking Maguffta Reviews, no compromises just tell it like it is, that’s how the Klutz rolls.

 

Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

Not one for having dessert at the best of times, ok so I’m telling a little fib, but for give me, don’t do it all the time, So I asked my friendly waiter what was on the menu for dessert. He ran through the list of cakes am pies they had and when he said the magic words, Key Lime Pie I was sold and ordered a coffee to go with it. The pie arrived and looked totally scrumptious and the coffee aroma was rich and luscious. Took a sip of the coffee and was surprised by the flavour of the smooth tasty beverage, the best darned coffee I’ve had anywhere in Cape Town and surrounds in a long time, ‘s true I tell you, loved it.

Lemon meringue pie

Lemon meringue pie

Now to the big test, The Key Lime Pie, on first mouthful the crust was crunchy and really good, the merengue topping was light and fluffy and looked good. The pie filling however was another story sadly it was not Key Lime at all, but regular lemon, thereby making it a regular Lemon Meringue Pie. Now I’ve a particular liking for both style of pie and know the taste and look of both, never the less it was really delicious.

I’m a tough critic and as the title states it’s The Klutz in the Kitchen’s Straight Talkin’ No Punches Pulled Restaurant, Bisto, Cafe, Pub, Food Truck, Street Food & Take Away Grub n’ Cooking Maguffta Reviews, no compromises just tell it like it is, that’s how the Klutz rolls.

See what’s happened, you forgot too that I’d actually forgotten too, I went to Raith’s try their famous Goulash Soup and was completely side-tracked because their entire menu looks delicious, mind you I don’t recall seeing it on their menu. I’m just going to have to pay them another visit soon, when that will happen, to soon to tell but back we will go, that’s a promise.

SEPTEMBER 6, 2015 ~ SISGWEN

Rico RodriguezTrombonist Emmanuel Rodriguez – “Rico” or “El Reco” – died on Sept 4 aged 80. The death of any great musician is a sad occasion. Even sadder in this case is the way the international press marked this passing. Without exception, the headline was “Specials’ trombonist Rico dies”.

Rico certainly did work with Coventry-based UK band The Specials between 1979 and 1984. His is the sinister ‘bone sound infusing Ghost Town, a 1981 anti-austerity (the Thatcher version) anthem that spent three weeks at the top of the UK Top 10 and ten weeks in the top 40.

But that is only a fraction of the career of a magnificent player, with more than a little jazz in his sound, which stretched from the 1950s to his final gig, only three years ago in 2012 and generated hundreds of recordings. It wasn’t just for Ghost Town that he was awarded an MBE and a Jamaican Musgrave medal. And while their era introduced him to more white listeners, The Specials did not make Rico’s career; he lent his skill and distinction to their sound.

Rico was born in Cuba in October 1934, but his family moved to Jamaica when he was still very young. He attended the Alpha Boys School: a historic religious foundation for ‘wayward boys’. He told Belgian website rebelbase that he had been “a little wily wily” as a child, and was placed there by an anxious mother.

An Alpha education was often synonymous with the uncovering of musical talent. Several leading producers, vocalists, and countless singers and instrumentalists including the four founding members of the Skatalites honed their skills behind its walls. For Rico – who started in the school band on cornet – it was older schoolmate Don Drummond who united him with his instrument. Rico said he found the initial experience of learning from Drummond terrifying “I wondered if I could ever reach up to his level.”

Drummond (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yENv58B02w) went on to be rated by pianist George Shearing as among the top five trombonists of his generation worldwide, but suffered severe psychological problems intensified by political persecution for his radical Rastafarianism. After killing his partner, he died in a psychiatric hospital, possibly from maltreatment.

Rico Rodriguez coverRico was drawn to political Rasta too, and adopted the faith in his mid-teens. Increasingly he spent his time up in the Wareika Hills with Drummond, legendary producer Count Ossie and the mix of devout Rastas, radicals, artists and students who dropped in and out of the day-long music sessions that were part-jam and part devotion. The Nyabinghi drumming that underpinned that music became a characteristic feature of his own later compositions.

Those contacts, and the constant challenge of extended practice honed Rico’s skill, making him one of the most in-demand studio trombonists of the booming Jamaican ska scene. He worked with everybody: Count Ossie and other production dons like Vincent Chin, Duke Reid and Lord Coxsone, performers such as Prince Buster, Toots Hibbert and, of course, the Skatalites. No discographer claims a complete account of the tracks he wrote or featured on, but in the press this morning/sell tonight climate of Kingston studios and the emerging sound systems, it is likely to have approached triple figures even before Rico left for London in 1961.

If life in Jamaica, with the constant threat of police raids on Rastafarian gatherings, had been hard, London with its pervasive racism was equally tough. “It was hard to get work if you weren’t European or Caucasian, “ Rico remembered. He talks about the prejudices of those early days on www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_YrKAvwsZA .His first gig outside the Jamaican community was with singer Georgie Fame and The Blue Flames – but word of his skill spread, and over his career he worked outside Jamaican music with artists as varied as John Martyn, Ian Drury, Jools Holland, Ray Davies, Paul Young and many more.

Meanwhile, he was leading his own outfits, including Rico and the Rudies, with whom he recorded in 1969 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5iW69KssvQ) . It was work for the Trojan label playing what came to be known as ‘skinhead reggae” (espoused by anti-racists among white working-class youth – and, more covertly, by not a few racists too) that blossomed into the “two-tone” movement and the teamwork with The Specials.

But Rico was also working on his own music too. In 1977, he brought out what he considered his finest album, Man From Wareika. He loved it best because he felt it caught the mood and musical textures of those early days jamming in the Wareika Hills. Other albums followed, too numerous to list in full, but including the 1981 That Man is Forward and – for those who like their ska with more space for improvisation and (old-school) rhythm n’blues swing, the 1982 Jama Rico, whose Destroy Them features haunting Nyabinghi drums.

Rico also worked with performance poets such as Linton Kwesi Johnson and the tragic, powerful Michael Smith on his album Mi Cyaan’ Believe It, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGUh2KSrgpE ) in partnership with another studio legend, Dennis Bovell. He was a regular at anti-racism rallies and anti-apartheid gigs: self-effacing; never with much to say, except through his horn.

In his later years, the recognition and touring opportunities did come, but usually confined within a ‘reggae’ or ‘ska’ box, and often as the guest of young white revivalist bands. Yet as superbly as Rico spoke in the voice of that genre, he was also an improvising musician who, on stages such as that of London’s 100 Club in its heyday, was equally masterful and at ease in the company of jazz players. Listen to him with the Rudies on the 1969 Mighty Dan (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Wyw9xa3wVE ) skillfully weaving quotes into a rock steady rhythm matrix. Listen to the power and precision of his improvisation on Java from Jama Rico.

And even when he was playing a straight, tuneful little ska melody, Rico was a superb player who could hit his notes perfectly straight and sweet – which is hard on a slide trombone – or play around with them, daring as you like. It wasn’t accidental that one of his younger-generation collaborators was that edgiest of producers, Mad Professor: “Rico is [an absolute legend]. We toured together, worked, lived together: a nice guy.”

Rico was so much more than the “Specials’ trombonist”. He was a master musician who enriched the sound of his on-stage collaborators, and provided food for the souls, brains and feet of those of us who merely listened. May his soul rest in peace, while his memory and music live for a long, long time.

The Klutz In The Kitchen’s Recipe n’ Food Tidbits News Blog

Klutz in the Kitchen

The Klutz in the Kitchens Aperitif and other stuff

++++++++++++++===============++++++++++++++

The Klutz in the Kitchens Big Bitch of the Week

Frozen chips should be declared illegal and banned from the kitchens of all restaurants and fast food joints of the world They are cheap, nasty and invariably soggy oil filled junk. The Klutz has now taken a stand and walk out of any restaurant the does not serve hand cut homemade potato chips. He will not set foot into any fast food dive or places that call themselves a restaurant who serve only fresh produce. Nuff of accepting the crap that all of the national fast food dives serve up as good and healthy, ha! who are they trying to kid, huh. Where is the nutrition in frozen potato chips? No wonder the children of our country are being turned into fat slobs with parents gleefully taking the precious little bloated bundles to celebrate birthdays at those monstrous purveyors of unhealthy rubbish fast food. Now then Klutz is no goody two shoes and admittedly carries something extra around the waist, but then again who really trusts a chef who is too thin, eh! J

We all know too much oily and greasy fast food is not good for us but we all have fallen into the traps set for us but the marketing idiots who have these fast food chains encourage kids to nag their hard working parent to take then to the nearest joint so they can get the latest Disney toy or cartoon character on offer with their junk food. Get real parents, lets get back to actual authentic food. What do you say?, write to the klutzinthekitchen@alljazzradio.co.za and tell us of your experience.

The Klutz in the Kitchen supports and encourages one to join the slow food movement; it’s the opposite of fast food where good healthy fresh produce is used and cooked.at mealtimes.

This Days Recipe

Who doesn’t like wings, I mean they are a big seller at the fried chicken outlets around the country, why not rather make them at home yourself. Quick, easy and tasty and will be a real crowd-pleasing snack to watch TV by when the Rugby World Cup starts. Start practicing now to avoid disappointment when the games start.

The prep time is around 15 mins and cook time is only 10 mins

Southwest-Style Fried Chicken Wings

Southwest-Style Fried Chicken WingsIngredients

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

1 cup buttermilk

12 chicken wings

2 cups peanut oil

1 cup prepared Ranch dressing

2 tablespoons buttermilk

2 spring onions, chopped

Method

Wings: In shallow dish, whisk the flour, chili powder, cumin, salt and cayenne pepper together them pour the buttermilk into a medium-size bowl. Dip each wing into the buttermilk, shaking off excess. Roll in the flour mixture and place on a baking sheet fitted with wire rack and refrigerate. Heat the oil 185° C (365° F) in a large lidded heavy-bottom frying. Fry chicken, covered, for about 5 minutes, until browned and crispy. Turn and fry for an additional 5 minutes. If chicken is browning unevenly, move around in skillet with tongs. Transfer chicken to paper towels.

Its Cream Filled Donut Day

Cream Filled DonutWhether you enjoy chocolate, vanilla, lemon or ganache filling in your donut, today is the perfect day to enjoy these sweet treats!

Donuts came got to the United States in the mid-1800s through Dutch settlers that were known for their pastries. The first donut with a hole in the middle is said to be a creation of American Hansen Gregory. Thankfully, someone after Hansen made the brilliant decision to fill that hole with delicious cream filling! These were so well-liked that the Boston Creme Donut, perhaps one of the most popular cream filled donuts, became the official donut of Massachusetts in 2003.

Celebrate Cream Filled Donut Day with a stop at your local bakery for a box of fresh cream filled donuts!

What with Krispy Kreme Donut’s coming to South Africa, maybe the celebration is too soon, but hey it can be celebrated when the donut lands. As is well known the Klutz in The Kitchen has er, pardon the pun, a soft spot for the humble donut, so we’ll have to reserve judgment till they open their first store in Cape Town

It’s also Eat a Hoagie Day today

make hogiesThis well-known sandwich consists of a long roll or Italian or French bread sliced lengthwise and filled with meats, cheeses, vegetables, seasonings, sauces and more.

The hoagie, also known as a sub or grinder, is a sandwich whose name originated in the city of Philadelphia. One story claims that the Italian immigrants who worked at a shipyard called Hog Island during World War I would bring giant sandwiches for lunch. The workers were nicknamed “hoggies” so eventually the name was associated with the large sandwiches but the spelling evolved over time. There are several other stories, but they all give credit to Philly for the hoagie name.

HoagieSo what’s for lunch today? We think it’s a great day to eat a hoagie!

September is National Organic Harvest Month | National Piano Month

This week is Line Dance Week | Fashion Week

Remember that Sept 29th is International Coffee Day so looking forward to that day

++++++++++++++===============++++++++++++++

Food Trends

It is very pleasing to see that manufacturers and producers shifting to natural ingredients from artificial colorants and flavours due to health anxieties of many consumers in the country.

Companies are promising to remove artificial ingredients from products. Punters are asking for healthy ingredients and companies are intent on improving the bottom line and are listening. What’s not yet clear is whether the trend can translate to boosts in cereal, candy, and frozen pizza markets, particularly as many of these changes are happening over the next few years. What is clear is that not all problems are easily solved, as different ingredients require different reformulations.

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Wednesday 9th September 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1

An AJR Blog Supreme1NB, BIG WARNING – It’s going to be a really tough few weeks going forward at All Jazz Radio. We have some new owners in our building which is a good thing however a small problem comes with this good news, there will be builders making alterations to the apartment directly above our studio, so there will be lots of noise going on. We have come to agreement that they will keep noise to a limit at certain times of our broadcast day. The builders estimated that the whole renovation will take up to four weeks, in spite of this not all that time will be heavy banging and drilling. So my policy for the Jazz Rendezvous Radio, Pinotage, Coffee & Stockvel Show of less talk, more music will mean even less talk and loads more music will be in played there will be very few live on mic announcements and no interviews either during the building period. All info pertaining to what is being played will be Tweeted and a running commentary will take place on our Facebook pages, so please keep referring to our social medie sites, bear with us over the next four weeks.

Its another day and there is so much more new music that has come into the studios, we just love it ‘cause there is a whole heap of new Jazz, Blues, Latin and World jazz to share with the global village again this day. It’s unbelievable how much fabulous new music that is currently being released by the individual jazz musicians in the global village to date and that excludes all the well-known major record labels of the world. I’ve got to add a personal thanks to all the independent radio promoters and artist owned labels that make sure we get this new music regularly to play on All Jazz Radio.

The Klutz in the Kitchen really loves today’s food celebration because he really like making it for friends and guests and he’s really very good at it. Sadly on his meagre pension he can’t afford to indulge himself more than once every four years or so, having to set a date and save for it. Nuff sorrow and tears for now.

It’s Steak Au Poivre Day, that’s right pan-fried pepper fillet, just salivating at the very thought of it, aren’t you.

Steak Au Poivre is a French dish characterized by a steak, usually nice piece of fillet, coated with crushed peppercorns and then fried in a hot steel pan and it’s normally seared with lots of unsalted butter and sometimes a little oil and served with a yummolicious sauce, made with brandy, cream, butter, shallots, and sometimes Dijon mustard. The Klutz serves his with creamy garlicky mashed potatoes and Green Beans sautéed with bacon bits and fresh French bread to soak up the leftover sauce.

BTW, it’s also I Love Food and Wienerschnitzel day, that’s more about the Klutzes speed on the affordability scale.

Just a friendly reminder that September 29th is a big day for caffeine disciples everywhere, its International Coffee Day An annual holiday which is one of the most popular days on the fun holiday calendar, surprised? Mind you The Klutz believes every day is a celebration to enjoy the beverage whether it’s hot, iced, flavoured, espresso, cappuccino, latte, decaf, ok that’s taking it a bit far the decaf thing as a real coffaholic, I demand that decaf be withdrawn from the list, if not the Klutzes evil twin will be siced upon one and that no one wants to see happen.

LONDON JAZZ NEWS LIVE MUSIC REVIEW:

Michael Janisch’s Paradigm Shift at the Vortex

Vortex, 3rd September 2015. Review by Sebastian Scotney

I can’t imagine a band which, could give a composer more variety of timbre, pulse, pace, style, than the one Michael Janisch has assembled for this 35-date tour, of which last night was the first. It somehow felt like a huge newly-designed ship was being sent down the slipway and into the water, and as a bystander one got occasional glimpses of its scale.

The Sound of You is must for Joy of Jazz fans – Jazzaholic by

Don Albert

Don Albert

Don Albert 09/03/2015 08:53:12

Estelle Kokot will be performing at the Joy of Jazz festival in The Sound of You on September 25.

Estelle was born in England and at the age of five her parents decided to emigrate to Zimbabwe (then known as Rhodesia). Eventually she made her way to South Africa and into the music scene. She soon made a name for herself as the vocalist and pianist with the very popular group named Rush Hour.

In 1993 she decided to try her luck in London, where she now has a large following. She also made regular trips back to South Africa, for which she has a strong affiliation.

640x360_estelleA“I am delighted to be invited to perform at this year’s Standard Bank Joy of Jazz Festival. To be a part of this brilliant line up is really an honour for me and I am looking forward to reconnecting with The Sound of You band and sharing our new music with seasoned jazz lovers and new comers.

“Every time I come home (my home in my heart) to South Africa to perform, it is not just about the music. I feel a deep connection with South Africans from all walks of life. There is just such immediacy in the way people respond to music and to each other. Despite the hardships for many and all the other things that makes life a little difficult, South Africa and South Africans fill me with hope and the way we connect as a people is unique.

“Joy of Jazz has come along at the right time for me. I recorded my new album called The Sound of You in Cape Town towards the end of last year.

Estelle Kokot“It would be ideal to launch the album at Joy of Jazz in South Africa, because Chicago-born saxophonist Chico Freeman will be joining me with Herbie Tsoaeli on bass and Kevin Gibson on drums at Joy of Jazz. We will be performing material mostly from the new album. I might throw in a standard and one of my own tunes too. It is also Chico’s first time in South Africa.

“The Sound of You songbook was written and composed mostly by Chico Freeman and the lyrics were written by Jan Pulsford. Chico is the son of jazz great tenor saxophonist Von Freeman, and Jan toured, wrote and produced with pop diva Cyndi Lauper for 12 years. Jan and Chico have been writing songs and composing together for 12 years.

“Herbie has bought his own exquisite musicality to the songs and the arrangements without taking away from the melodies and Kevin is the most instinctive musician I have ever had the pleasure of working with. All these elements combined with Chico’s lyrical playing means that our first gig together at the Joy of Jazz is going to be quite an event for me, and we are all really looking forward to sharing the magic with you too!”

Estelle Kokot will be appearing at Joy of Jazz on the Dinaledi Stage on September 25.  Booking at Computicket.

Don Albert is an ex-saxophonist and jazz journalist. He spent 12 years with The Star Newspaper on the Tonight writing about jazz. He has presented radio programmes on jazz and was the presenter of the TV series Jazz Studio. He has served on the panel for judges at prestigious competitions. He has also won numerous awards, the latest being A Judges Commendation in the 2013 National Arts Festival Arts Journalist of the Year Awards. Presented by Business and Arts South Africa. It read: For outstanding work as an arts journalist over a sustained period, and for his invaluable contribution to the Jazz Industry through incisive, knowledgeable and passionate reporting.

Thanks to Don for the story

Today is National Bacon Day in South Africa

Bacon is meal CandyThough celebrated in the USA a couple of days ago we felt we needed our own National Bacon Day because we wanted an extra special day to enjoy this yummyolicious morsel. So today’s lip-smacking holiday is the perfect reason to enjoy this classic breakfast food. A BLT, bacon-wrapped meatloaf, or a simple side of bacon, it’s all mouth-watering.

Bacon is cured, smoked pork and has been around for some centuries. The method of preserving pork began in China around 1500 B.C, with the Greeks and Romans continuing the tradition. Modern-day bacon was first packaged and patented by Oscar Mayer in back in 1924.

Yummolicious good for your.

Chocolate chip cookie-lovers: Where would we be if it weren’t for Ruth Graves Wakefield (1903-1977), a 1930s-era Massachusetts innkeeper? Without Ruth there would be no chocolate chip cookies and by extension, no peanut butter chip cookies or other flavours of chips, no chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, no Chipwich. But why dwell on those what-if horrors? Let’s look at the happy history.

Ruth Graves graduated from the Framingham State Normal School Department of Household Arts in 1924. She worked as a dietician and lectured on food.

In 1930, Kenneth and Ruth Wakefield purchased a historic Cape Cod-style inn, the Toll House, on the outskirts of Whitman, Massachusetts, halfway between Boston and New Bedford. Originally constructed in 1709, the house had served as a stop for travellers in Colonial times: they paid their road toll, changed horses and dined. Over 200 years later, the Wakefields opened a lodge on the premises, the Toll House Inn. They served traditional Colonial fare. Ruth did the baking, and her desserts were very popular.

One day in 1937, while preparing a batch of Butter Drop Do cookies, a colonial brown sugar cookie recipe, Ruth found that she did not have the baker’s chocolate required, and instead chopped a bar of Nestlé Semi-Sweet Chocolate into tiny pieces. She added them to the dough, expecting them to melt during baking; instead, the chocolate held its shape and softened to a creamy texture. The new cookies became very popular at the Inn; Ruth’s recipe was published in newspapers throughout New England, and sales of Nestlé’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar skyrocketed.

Ruth eventually approached Nestlé and reached an agreement that allowed Nestlé to print what would become known as the Toll House Cookie recipe on the wrapper of the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar (part of the agreement included supplying Ruth with all of the chocolate she could use for the rest of her life). As the recipe continued to grow in popularity, Nestlé began to score the chocolate bar and packaged it with a special chopper for easy cutting into small morsels. In 1939, they introduced Nestlé Toll House Real Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels. Nestlé claims that the Toll House is the most popular cookie of all time. Who are we to disagree?

And the recipe was originally called Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies, as the morsels, or chips, came later.

The After Story

Officially, chocolate chip cookies are the state cookie of Massachusetts, where they were invented, and Pennsylvania, home to Hershey’s, Nestlé’s chief competitor in the chocolate morsel business. Alas, you can’t visit the Toll House Inn today. In 1966, Kenneth and Ruth sold it and retired to Duxbury, Massachusetts. The new owners turned the building into a nightclub. In 1970, it was sold again, to the Saccone family, who restored the original Toll House Inn and Restaurant. Unfortunately, on New Year’s Eve 1984, the old building caught fire and was destroyed.

Now that you know the history of this tasty little morsel, you going to head to your local purveyor of all things you diet instructor warned you against. Go one you know you want that little beastie of a Chocolate Chip Cookie new, so go get some and enjoy. J

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Thursday 3rd September 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1A BLOG SUPREME

A beautiful day in the African Jazz Capital – The City of Cape Town, which offers hope of good things to come, Braai’s (barbeques) spring to mind, which has really excited the Klutz in the Kitchen and yours truly. I’ve got to invest in a kettle braai, to install on my apartments balcony, this time I believe it’s the right thing to do, gas braais just don’t cut it at all. It’s the smoke and smell washed down with a great Craft Beer or a glass and a half of Pinotage to hand and the flavourful meat that makes it so worthwhile. The mission is now to find where the best place is to go to buy one at the best price, naturally. Oh I must talk to the body corporate chairperson first to make sure its ok to braai on the balcony.

++++++++++++++===============++++++++++++++

The Klutz in the Kitchen’s Straight Talkin’ No Punches Pulled Restaurant Grub n’ Pub n’ Cookin’ Stuff Reviews – Wednesday 03 September August 2015

Klutz in the Kitchen

Klutz in the Kitchen

Review

There I was, hanging around at the computer at home checking things on Facebook, Twitter and on the Internet seeing all sorts of interesting things I decided to follow up on a couple. So I went out to try out a new coffee shop in Kenilworth called The Bootlegger, now after seeing there Facebook page with a picture of one of their burgers which was on special offer celebrating their new liquor license, now as one knows The Klutz in the Kitchen is a real sucker for a really good burger at anytime of the day.

Bootloegger logoI arrived around 11:17 on Saturday morning, looked for a table in the nearly full shop and found one, sat down, casting my eyes around he buzzing, vibrant shop, and soon after was presented with the breakfast menu by an attending waitress for which I was not there for. I asked if they had another menu and was told yes and given 3 other menus. Two of which stated they were only in operation at certain times of the day but was pleased to see the burger menu had no such restrictions.

Whilst perusing their menus I ordered a cup of their coffee, shock and horror a mini cup was served, no not an espresso cup nor a regular cup but something in between, the young waitress, hate the word waitron, noticed my look of consternation and disappointment, I said, “don’t like the small cup? er, what do you think young lady” I said. I won’t say what she said because I fear her bosses may victimize her. The offending cup was 175ml cup as opposed to a normal 250ml cup and at 20 bucks and was a serious rip off to my way of thinking. The coffee itself was horrible, bitter with scum on top. They claim huge pride in their coffee, don’t know how because it was like dishwater, ugh! It makes something I’d not drunk since a child, a certain brand of cheap chicory based instant “coffee” taste good.

I was now ready to order and the manager over to take my order. I told her I wanted the Burger Special as advertised on Facebook. I was told no that the kitchen for that side was not open nor were the burgers ready, huh! I was told that the burgers are made fresh and weren’t ready another huh! This was now around 11:45. I was further informed that the equipment for making and cooking the burgers was not ready, again huh! Having been in and run professional kitchens and owned restaurants I knew there was a problem and that the manageress was totally out of her depth forgetting about customer service and that the customer is king. She single handedly destroyed The Klutzes faith in the Bootlegger Coffee Company, I do however lay blame at her bosses for a complete lack of customer service training. I won’t be back at the Bootlegger in Kenilworth in a hurry nor do I recommend them highly at all.

The FB picture wot started it all

The FB picture wot started it all

I left hungry, disappointed and ripped off, shame is that I’d hoped to find a local coffee shop to arrange meetings at on a regular basis, sad it’s not to be at this stage, depends on a second visit sometime in the future. The search continues.

The Bootlegger is lucky to get ★★ = Better than bad, still not good enough, waste of time and money. Visit at ones own peril.

The Klutz in the Kitchen will be visiting one of the other branches in the near future to see if the experience is repeated.

Visited Bootlegger Kenilworth on Saturday 29 August

Is capitalism the only road to making it in the music biz?

AUGUST 31, 2015

cultural policy-makers

Every time I attend a music industry gathering, I am struck by how far behind the curve our cultural policy-makers are.

Last weekend’s KZN Music Industry Imbizo, where I was a speaker, was a modest affair: a trade exhibition, some live performance showcases, and three days of talking heads variously pontificating, educating and entertaining, all folded inside the faded glory of Durban’s historic Royal Hotel. This year, the seventh edition was slightly more modest than the organisers had hoped, since despite a go-ahead from provincial funding mechanisms back in May, the cash still hadn’t arrived by the opening date of August 27th.

Nevertheless, there was an impressive guest list, headed for South Africa by one of the fathers of our modern jazz, Themba Mkhize, and for the visitors by Monte Malone, Senior Vice-President of A&R Worldwide and Seymour Stein, vice-president of Warner Bros Records and founder of legendary label Sire Records.

The symposium sessions were packed to overflowing. The seminar audience, though, was dominated by youngsters, all bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and eager to learn how to become a (hip-hop) star. We saw far fewer faces from music education, and from genres such as traditional music and gospel.

That was probably a pity, since both those genres are far larger than hip-hop – and gospel, nationally, is larger than all other genres of South African popular music rolled into one. Both traditional music and gospel have made necessity the mother of invention, developing their own highly effective professional networks, product outlets and performance circuits way below the radar of conventional industry commentators. They have much grassroots wisdom to share.

But what the dominance of youth did demonstrate is that digital savvy – at least at an individual level – is far higher in a roomful of musically-inclined young people than in a boardroom full of distinguished arts and culture bureaucrats. Everybody was wired into some kind of device, running the gamut from beat-up feature phone to shiny laptop; busily Tweeting, photographing, recording, taking notes, checking data. Nobody needed the power, speed and reach of the digitally-transmitted MP3 music file explained to them – they just wanted to learn how to use it better.

Nobody suggested that hunting down taxi-rank cassette vendors was still the industry’s most important battle. Indeed, Power FM’s Unathi Memela described how the Bree Street rank could be converted into an ally by the simple expedient of making drivers sales agents for CDs, “without even beating anybody up.”

But if there was a decent grasp of ‘how?’, the audience remained eager to debate ‘what?’ and ‘why?’ And there we began to see, starkly, the contradictions within the ‘creative industry’ paradigm for thinking about the music industry.

Often in the same address, contributors wrestled with the conundrum of being both the anomic, solipsistic, successful ideal-type capitalist entrepreneur, and staying a decent human being. Industry consultant Vusi Leeuw summed up the paradox perfectly, although he was by no means the only speaker to exist inside it. He urged the need for respect between industry players – but followed that up with “And respect money too. If you’re doing something for love, go to charity and stay there (…) That’s not a bad thing; it’s capitalism. Ubuntu has gone out of the window and I’m grateful for that.”

A little hard-headed self interest is perhaps understandable. South Africa experienced a long period of righteous cultural volunteerism in the service of the struggle. That was followed by an equally long period when politicians in a now- liberated South Africa continued to demand that musicians donate their services under some slogan or another. A little cynicism is likely to be added to the mix when it becomes apparent that some of those politicians were at the same time enthusiastically filling their own pockets.

The danger of talking about music within the music bubble is forgetting that many of the industry’s problems and challenges are not unique to the industry. They reflect the society around us. That society is shaped by political choices. And it doesn’t always have to be this way.

Percy Mabandu – Writer

Music is not only a commodity to be bought and sold; a thing of price rather than value. It is wholly legitimate that aspiring musicians learn to do business in a more structured and efficient way to pay the bills and feed their families. But music is also the expression of hopes, dreams, fears and desires. Writer Percy Mabandu reminded us, in his readings from his forthcoming book on Winston Mankunku Ngozi that marketability is not the only starting-point for making great music. Yakhal’Inkomo spoke to millions as the top-selling album of its year because it crystallised the shared agony and yearning of “the black man’s pain” – not how things go better with a Coke. Malone urged “You shouldn’t be in it for the money; your main goal should be the passion for music.” Stein, at the end of a wide-ranging set of reminiscences that began with listening to legendary radio DJ Alan Freed back in his childhood Brooklyn home in the 1950s, reflected “I love what I do…” and urged aspiring musicians not to seek glib formulae, but “have the courage of your convictions.”

Music organizer Akhio Kawahito reflected that the average life-span of a hip-hop artist in the market was “perhaps three years.” Mankunku began playing (piano) in 1950 aged seven. He was still playing (saxophone) more than half a century later, short months before his death. Maybe taking the longer musical view helps in getting a few priorities right?

Later on this week during The Jazz Rendezvous Radio Pinotage, Coffee & Stockvel Show we’ll have the wonderful Cape Town vocalist, no lets call her voice stylist, teacher, musician and all round nice person, Nicky Schrire​ who has re-settled in the African Jazz Capital, The Mother City, City of Cape Town​ after her years of study and performance around the global village. We’ll also be talking coffee at the end of the week with David Dondé​, founder of Truth Coffee Roasting and owner of the coffee emporium that has been named as the best coffee shop in the global village by The Telegraph in London. Now I love coffee, but there are some really blerry awful coffees being served up at the coffee shops that seem to be springing up like rabbits in breeding season. That’s coming up this week on All Jazz Radio.

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Tuesday 31st August 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1A BLOG SUPREMEIt’s supposed to be the start of spring in the Southern Hemisphere today I’m reliably informed told. Get you facts right weather person, it’s still winter in Cape Town, overcast, chilly, wet and miserable, humpf! Forecasters huh! Breakfast on the go today the best steak pie every from Coimbra Bakery, Claremont, beats Woolworths, Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, Spar, in fact any supermarket bakery anytime of the day.

There I was, hanging around at the computer at home checking things on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet seeing all sorts of interesting things I decided to follow up on a couple. So I went out to try out a new coffee shop in Kenilworth, Bootleggers, now after seeing there Facebook page and the picture of one of their burgers, and as one knows The Klutz in the Kitchen is a real sucker for a really good burger at anytime of the day. I ordered a cup of their coffee, shock and horror a mini cup was served, no not an espresso cup nor a regular cup at all, the waitress noticed my look of disappointment and said, “ don’t like the small cup?” er what do you think young lady I said. At 20bucks that was a total rip off to my way of thinking. Nuff said for now read the full review of the visit to the Bootlegger later when we publish The Klutz in the Kitchen’s Straight Talkin’ No Punches Pulled Restaurant Grub n’ Pub n’ Cooking Stuff n’ Reviews
