Splitting town and eating animals…
As anyone who is reading this blog knows, The Alchemist is shutting down for 8 days to renovate the kitchen. As Robin(our resident cobbler/tire re-vulcanizer) has already said, you will not notice anything startlingly new when you walk in the door, but this renovation will definitely make things drastically easier for me to stuff your faces with your favorite Alchemist dishes. I have a feeling that when we are done and back in operation everyone in the back will say “wow, I can’t believe how much easier this is.” Word for word hopefully.
Now down to the nuts and bolts of this blog… I know you, the reader has asked yourself “gee, I wonder what Jeff is doing while the kitchen is shut down.?.” Well since I decided that you asked, I am packing up Mrs. chef and the official chef dog and going back to Cincinnati for another chili tour. As most people know I have been in seclusion since my crushing defeat at the Waterbury Chilympiad this year and after many quiet hours of reflection I have come to a healthy spiritual place. About time, right? I now understand that the only way to reclaim my crown as the Chili King is to humble myself and once again sup at the tables of the masters. I will, as is my habit, be making the rounds to my favorite chili parlors and hopefully trying some new gems that have here-to-fore eluded me. As usual, I will be blogging about all of my adventures. This trip to the land of my roots is just the thing to rev up some fine high music in the brain and once and for all be shut of this whole losing to Sean Carey mess.
In addition to stuffing my belly with chili, I plan to do some serious turkey hunting in Ohio. I should get my chops tuned up on the birds in Clermont County and come back to Vermont primed for the second half of Spring turkey season here. Hopefully in addition to my chili reviews I will be posting a triumphant account of my hunt. As it turns out, I am a great shot as long as there is not a turkey in front of my shotgun. Lets see if we can’t fix that, eh?
I have officially used the word “chili” far too many times in one blog.
Until indigestion sets in,
