INGREDIENTS

4 pounds Russet Potatoes
2 medium Onions
1 TBS Lemon Juice
1 Cup Chopped Scallions
4 Large Eggs, beaten
to taste Salt and Pepper
Grape Seed - Olive Oil Blend  

TOOLS

Prep: 1:30 

- Vegetable Peeler

- 2 Large Bowls

- Cutting Board

- Chef's Knife

- Brown Paper Bag

- Parchment Paper

- Food Processor or Box Grater

- Baking Sheet Pan

- Fry Pan

- Thermometer

METHOD

1. Put the onion in the freezer. Peel the potatoes and keep them submerged in cold water.

2. Grate ⅔ or the potatoes on a box grater or with the grater attachment of your food processor.
Set aside in a very large bowl.

3. Chop up the remaining ½ of the potatoes and the onions with the bottom blade of your food processor, 20 pulses.

4. Place a handful of the potatoes and onions in the center of a thin cotton tea towel or 5 layers of cheese cloth and squeeze the liquid out over a bowl, I have found putting the bowl in t sink is the easiest position to give my bicepts a workout.

Repeat until all the potatoes have been squeezed. RESERVE THE LIQUID.

5. Toss the juice of one large lemon into the potatoes and onions.
Place the squeezed potato in a large bowl and cover with the wet towel you used to squeeze them.
They can be put into the refrigerator until ready to fry at this stage, leave the water bowl out.

6.Ready to fry: Pour enough oil in the pan to be 2 inches deep, a high burning point oil is best: olive oil (not extra virgin) can be combined with grape seed oil or vegetable oil in a 2-1 ratio (twice as much high burning point oil to half olive oil) to boost the temperature and maintain the olive oil flavor.

7. Add the diced scallions, the eggs, salt and pepper to the potatoes.

8.Here's the secret trick: Drain the water out of the squeezed potato liquid but scrape the potato starch that has settled on the bottom of the bowl and add that to the potatoes.

9. The can be spread out on parchment paper, placed in an airtight container and frozen to be fried later at this point.

10. When the oil has reached 325ºF you can make a huge pancake the size of the pan or put small handfuls of the potatoes into the oil. It is imperative to keep the oil hot, so the second pile of potatoes on the opposite side of the pan in a minute, then add the third 2 minutes later, flip them over when golden, then add a fourth and fifth little pile.

11. I look for the outside edges to get golden and the potatoes to turn grey before I flip them and I use a slotted flat round spatula to flip them.

12. Place them on brown paper bags or parchment paper laid out over sheet pans - do not over lap them.

Serve immediately or if making them hours before serving them: place them on parchment paper in a 350ºF oven to reheat them.



For parties of 50 multiply the ingredients by 6 and use 3 fry pans (electric work best) for 2 hours prep and 4 hours (doing nothing else) fry time.

Chef Elaine b Good is the cook behind
 
www.elainegoodfood.com

and this
good2eat4U website, which was

built to contain tips to facilitate a

healthier food life-style.



Chef Elaine b Good has just completed another in a series

of 'living cookbooks' that are built into this site so that they can

continue to contain her latest culinary creations that she

 develop from her culmination of skill sets and experiences

learned along the way as a Personal Chef, Italian Grandmother

the Grand Daughter of Farmers and Certified Nutritionist.


Chef Elaine has been an organic Corporate Chef for Fortune 500 Companies,

including marketing and advertising executives, conducting focus-group studies

on product launches. She is a consultant to address food allergies and sensitivities

as well as dietary lifestyle choices.



Chef Elaine b Good works with a ‘Chef’s Inspiration’ menu.

It begins at local farmer’s market where Chef Good personally

selects organic produce and develops the meal around these

foods while they are in their prime.


Her vegetarian Sicilian grandfather owned a produce store and a farm;

her parents always had a vegetable garden, as soon as she could

walk she was taught how to handle fresh produce.

Chef Elaine then matches wild caught fish and organic proteins

from local sources to these produce finds.

 

A Certified Food Manager and Nutritionist, and Chef Elaine has cooked at

country clubs, hotels, private parties and for producers of packaged meals.

During this time, Elaine gained experience in large-scale food production

and the compromises the industrialization of food has taken.

 

Chef Good was born allergic to dairy, she does not eat white flour products

(before anyone heard of the word gluten), and Chef Good does not eat sugar,

and therefore, has been cooking dairy free, gluten free, and sugar fee for

more than 30 years. So, when Chef Good started getting dietary

requests from her clients, she was able to offer delicious alternatives,

and this became her specialty.


Chef Good started slipping her gluten-diary-sugar free meals onto

the table next to more generic food, and those were the dishes that

commanded recipe requests, and got raves without anyone

noticing that they were anything but delicious.

When Chef Good divulged her secret, no one believed her!


She became actor Bradley Coopers Personal Chef. This self-proclaimed

foodie needed to build his physique for movie rolls in a matter of weeks.

His gluten, dairy and sugar free meals, in calorie specific servings 6 times

a day, did the job quickly, and he would insist that he was sent the wrong

food: "This can't be dairy and gluten free lasagna, it's the best I've every had!"

and his mother is Italian.


Chef Elaine b Good now has a library of over 1700 personally developed

and unique recipes, complete with nutritional and caloric breakdowns.

Healthy and gourmet in flavor

 

This membership site

(no annoying sponsors videos, no selling off your contact information)

offers helpful hints and recipes that are quick and easy to make.

The recipes use old-world ingredients (as opposed to expensive

packaged gluten free alternatives) with a Californian approach to

good health within the modern framework of limited time.


Also, 

wanting to service families, on the site are video clips of teens teaching

simple cooking techniques to involve the whole family in meal execution.

Chef Good is naturally drawn to teaching children and has a

strong desire and passion for educating children about food in an effort to help

conquer the childhood obesity crisis.


While dealing with fussy-junk-food-loving grandchildren, she developed

balanced meals that look like cartoons on a plate, that they assemble

themselves. This is the inspiration for her cookbook, ‘Let’s Play With Food’.

Chef Good Uses techniques and flavors that appeal to children, getting them involved in

handling their food and recognizing the color categories of nutrition. 

Other Cookbook titles include: 'No Kidding' for college age cooking and

athletes, 'Light Dinners for Hot Nights' romantic meals without a bulging belly.


Food is the first step in being healthy, feeling and looking good. "Come on, let me show you

how easy and delicious real food and a healthier life style can be, you look hungry!"
