November was an excellent and exciting month for ManChef where we were asked to participate in the Mount Sinai Chefs Challenge the Ultimate Battle for a Cure for Breast and Ovarian Cancer. ManChef would like to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to Mount Sinai for the hard work and wonderful event.

The stage was set and the heat was on with Chef Bobby Flay and featuring the Top Food Network Celebrity Chefs battling to defeat the reigning champion of the inaugural Chef?s Challenge- Team of Lynn Crawford. A big Congratulation goes out to Mark McEwan who won the 2011 Championship.

Pronounced 'keen wah', Quinoa is a frequently neglected and relatively unknown superfood - containing a perfect balance of all eight essential amino acids. It is gluten-free and a great source of protein.

Not only high in protein, quinoa is high in fiber, and vitamins such as riboflavin, calcium, vitamin E, iron, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, folic acid and beta carotene. It is also abundant in linolenic acid, the essential fatty acid that has proven to benefit the immune response Quinoa has been cultivated in the Andean mountain regions of Peru, Chile and Bolivia for over 5,000 years, and it has long been a staple food in the diets of the native Indians. The Incas considered it a sacred food and referred to it as the "mother seed."

Because quinoa is a very good source of manganese as well as a good source of magnesium, folate, and phosphorus, this "grain" may be especially valuable for persons with migraine headaches, diabetes and atherosclerosis.

ManChef would like to wish you and yours a very
happy healthy holiday and all the best for the season.

Peter's Cooking Tips and Tricks

Never ever, ever leave cooking foods unattended
- not even for a minute.

Handling Knives: (a) Always cut away from your body when using a knife. It can slip and cut you, (b) Always use a cutting board, (c) Protect your counter tops, (d) Keep blades sharp, (e) Keep knives clean (including handle) ? slippery handles can cause injuries, (f) Don?t put knives in a sink of soapy water ? they may not be seen and accidents can occur, (g) Wash and dry carefully keeping sharp edge away from your hands, (h) Always lay them flat, never on the back or edge, (i) Don?t attempt to catch a knife as it falls ? better it hits the floor than cut your hand, (j) Wash knives with warm soapy water after each use.
