beef stew has a sour taste- help?

Leave out onion soup mix. Replace with carmelized onion and the carrots as suggested earlier. Add some red wine

Scarsdale Pizza & Brew rebranded Racanelli's now open -anyone gone?

Racanelli's opened on Monday

Hilarious: Pete Wells on Guy Fieri, NYT

Wells is doing for jourmalism what Fieri and company have done for educational culinary television,.i.e, sophomoric entertainment. In this sense think that Fieri is to Pepin as Wells is to Claiborne.

What were your FIRST three cookbooks?

Joy -a great first cookbook that lives on as a good reference.
NYT - Clearly the most useful and cookable a survivor
Beard -(this i bought used - copyright 1960) the book is a really sort of camp now. it's arranged alphabetically ( yep Appitizers, Bread, Deserts, Meats, Vegatables) but it is solid -great basics. After years of cooking ribs, smoked, dry rubbed, mopped, I pullled out Beard this past week and used his sparerib recipe.

Salt and pepper the rack and roast in 325 deg oven for an hour.

pure pork flavor. He then offers a few pages of riffs.

sorry state of fried chicken in westchester

not westchester but has anyone tried the fried chicken at Bailey's Smokehouse in Blauvelt

Need one more Italian dish please

How about a simple fricassee maybe with chicken thighs. They stay moist and will survive on a warming tray. It's pretty straighforward if you keep it simple and finish in oven.

Your all time favorite 'TV' cooking show chefs?

okay, can't resist giving shout out to Keith Floyd.
Two Hot Tamales - great show fantasic, under produced show compared to today's glam. Almost 90's version Julia - looking to recover from chicken escaping cutting board. Met one Tamale at their place in Santa Monica - gracious

Creating a recipe for stuffed shells advice

I've used broccoli and cauliflower braised and into food processor. makes a great stuffing and though i used creame fraiche it can probably be w/o milk products. Some egg or roux based mix to bind and you could out of the milk product,
