Cannon on Chronicle

Hey all, in case you missed it, mixmaster Jackson Cannon of Eastern Standard was profiled on Chronicle HD on January 14. (The segment appears after a short piece on chef’s knives, featuring chef David Punch of Ten Tables in JP.) Cannon demos a Frisco and ES’ own Harvest Cocktail while throwing out some historical tidbits and showing off his cocktail-shaking technique. My favorite moment: As the show’s host, Mary Richardson, gingerly gives the shaker a try, Cannon instructs, “A little harder, Mary.” Hoo-hoo!

    Despite the fact that she reminds of a Stepford Wife on ‘roids…they did a nice job here. Am posting on it and giving you the scoop credit. I think we should have drinks with Jackson or Misty when we finally make our date! I need to meet both! NEED. To. I’m writing about organic cocktails and drinking Theraflu which is pretty close to my idea of hell.

    Okay, while popping a quick post on this news…I decided we need to come up with a cocktail called a Ramsay’s Folly. Ideas?

    Hmm, Ramsay’s Folly? I think the man’s got cooking talent, but he’s an insufferable boor otherwise. I might propose something like grappa as the base spirit (for its raw, unpolished quality), pureed cooked beet (to approximate GR’s face color when he gets in a lather), and a healthy squirt of Rooster Sauce, aka sriracha, a Vietnamese chili sauce (for the cock’s preening qualities and the heat of capsicum). And maybe a dash of despair. It would be dreadful and ultimately a financial failure, kinda like GR.

    Wow, I think you nailed it, Slim. Wasn’t there some spoof recently that had Ramsey doing his show in hell and yelling at Hitler and Mussolini for their cooking mistakes?
