Welcome to the Lab

So as many of you know, I am not a chef. I have, however trained by watching my brother Matt create recipes from scratch and make something wonderful. Well in 17 hours I will demonstrate 2 chowders before 40 patrons at the Hampton Bays library. Neither one of which I have cooked before. Sure I have tasted many a Manhattan clam chowder, but actually never cooked one from scratch. So just an hour ago I started from scratch and it came out, okay. Not great because I was using canned clams and canned clam juice. Tomorrow it will be fresh squeezed from the shell, so i know the taste will really pop. So for this one I am happy and the official taster WGP was very impressed. So I guess I'm off to a good start. I'll try to make the labster and corn chowder at some point tomorrow before I demo it in front of 40 screaming BISCo.-heads. What can I say? They love the show.
