Baked Macaroni and Cheese

(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck)

Servings: Serves 4

Ingredients:

8 ounces elbow macaroni

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 1/2 cups milk

3 tablespoons finely chopped black truffle (optional)

1/2 medium white onion

1 bay leaf

10 ounces sharp aged white Cheddar, shredded

3 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded

1 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pinch cayenne

2 drops black winter truffle oil (optional)

1 cup fresh brioche or challah bread crumbs

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley

Thinly sliced fresh black truffles, for garnish (optional)

Steps:

Step One: Preheat oven to 350°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add macaroni and cook until al dente, tender but still chewy, about 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to lightly oiled baking pan. Set aside.

Step Two: While macaroni cooks, melt 3 tablespoons butter in a separate pot over low heat. Whisk in flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes.

Step Three: Add milk, chopped truffle, onion, and bay leaf to butter-flour mixture. Raise heat slightly and simmer for 10 minutes, until creamy, stirring regularly. Discard onion and bay leaf. Remove from heat.

Step Four: Stir in 3/4 of aged Cheddar along with other cheeses. Season with salt, black pepper, cayenne, and truffle oil if desired. Fold in macaroni. Pour into 2-quart casserole. Top with remaining Cheddar.

Step Five: Melt remaining butter in sauté pan. Add breadcrumbs and parsley. Toss to coat. Spread crumb mixture evenly over top of macaroni.

Step Six: Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven let stand for about 5 minutes. Top with shaved truffle, if desired, before serving.

The Epliogue

The Epilogue is a blend of decidedly warmer, richer flavors, playing off of the carefully aged notes in Tequila Don Julio Reposado. Hints of coffee, baking spices, anise and mellow oak wrap draw you in. The perfect, broad-shouldered sipper that showcases the versatility of aged tequila.

THE EPILOGUE

Ingredients:

1 1/4 ounces Tequila Don Julio Reposado

1/4 ounce Caffé Amaro

1/4 ounce Cocchi di Torino

Light barspoon of 2:1 Demerara Syrup

Long orange twist and fresh tarragon sprig for garnish

Preparation:

1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing

glass with ice. Stir to chill and dilute.

2. Pour over fresh ice into an Old Fashioned Glass.

Rising Above ~ Dustin Quick

Rising Above ~ Dustin Quick

Meeting Dustin Quick at LA Swim Week 2015 was a fabulous evening. Quick with her husband Medi eM performed the opening act. Quick continued the evening with a great runway showing.

Quick brings solid talent and exceptional beauty to her modeling, acting, and performing. She is always rising above to bring great entertainment to her audiences.

Dustin Quick Art Hearts Fashion Week 4Chion Lifestyle b
Dustin Quick with her Husband Photographer Raymond L Forchion Jr.

How did your life’s journey bring you to modeling, singing, acting, and performing? 

“When I was five, my mother took me to see The King and I at the Omaha Community Playhouse, created by Marlon Brando‘s mother and the Fonda’s.  Between the vivid, silk costumes and exotic makeup, my senses were piqued, so once I saw two children actors on stage, I quickly nudged my mom and whispered, ‘How did those kids get up there?’  She replied, ‘I think they had to audition’, so I asked her to take me to the next one which was for, ‘A Christmas Carol’.   We showed up to a big room filled with pro-kids and stage moms who had recorded accompaniment or sheet music, we didn’t know to bring anything, so when it was my turn, I sang, ‘Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah’ a cappella with some moves on the fly, and they cast me as the new angel.”

As an entertainer and fashion model, what is one piece of insight would you share?

“Stay in school, #Instafame is fleeting, an education is an asset that you can trust in for life.”

You released a new music video. What can we expect with this song and video?

“Medi eM is a guitarist/composer, I write and sing the lyrics, and on this song, ‘Heartbeat‘ we both sing about what happened when we found each other.  When two heart cells are near each other, they start synchronizing their beat, so Medi fused his flamenco and house music backgrounds to create a tribal rhythm that gets hips shaking, together.  The video is a symbolic story of us, our love freed each other, and set our hearts on fire.”
Dustin Quick LA Swim Week 4Chion Lifestyle k
Dustin Quick wearing Grace Moon

What is the one thing you do each morning to start off your day?  

“I open the curtains in front of our bed which looks out to our fruit trees, I’ve seen a mockingbird feed her babies (I call her Mama Rockingbird), put the tea on, and then curl up with Medi in bed, and we watch the political satire that aired the night before together. “

When was there a time when an event went from stress to best? 

“Yes!  I was asked to model the finale look for these gorgeous couture hats.  The incredibly talented millinery (hat designer), Annette Higgins picked the perfect dresses to compliment her creations, and my gown was a gorgeous full, floor-length satin strapless number to match her biggest hat ever, in a luscious shape and classic red.  The only problem is that my torso is just naturally built more narrow than most (designer Sue Wong affectionately says that I’m size, ‘sub-zero’), and as a result, strapless dresses end up becoming belts on me.  Now, this show had grand steps coming down to the runway, so I’m backstage quietly trying to figure how I wasn’t going to face-plant for the grand finale.  I tried puffing out my chest and then wrapped a padded bra around underneath to keep the dress up, and clinching the strap built inside the dress for support, all to no avail.  This is when I start lamenting myself for not bringing my taller heels.  I was freaking out internally because I didn’t know how I was going to be able to walk in the show without becoming a YouTube fail.  So I prayed, and the inspiration came to me to draw from flamenco dancing and hold the dress up like a bullfighting femme fatal enticing her mark to tango with her.  The crowd applauded, the designer loved it, and I got to feel like I was in a Fellini film.”
 Working fashion shows what is a typical day start to finish?
“My call time is usually 4 hours before showtime, so that morning I eat, shower, pack my bag, do my nails, rush out the door and race to the runway  Once hair and makeup is done, I get dressed carefully, line-up, wait (this industry is the genesis of the phrase, ‘fashionably late’), strut like I mean it, red carpet photos with the designer, and then find Medi!”

An image is an important addition to the rise in selfies what is one focus you think could improve a person’s image?

“I actually don’t care for basic solo selfies, but I know people take them sitting in their car because it’s good angle and lighting.  However, unless it’s a dope car, or you just passed your driver’s license, it’s too common, so I would focus on replicating that angle and lighting that reveals more of the person’s imagination.”

You present a great cohesive style. How did you discover your personal style?

“Awe thank you, well I’ve been passionate about fashion since I was pre-school I only wanted to wear silk, satin nothing too cutesy like big buttons, denim or dresses without waistlines.  Although I was otherwise a really good kid, honestly the only time I ever got upset was when my mother or sister had me wear something I didn’t like.  One winter my mother had understandably forced jeans on me, I took them off in the car on the way to the sitter’s house, and ran out in the snow pant-less because I didn’t want to wear ‘boy clothes’.  My mother is a traveler, so she took me with her to Spain when I was 6 and fell in love with a long Flamenco dress, I kindly pleaded for her to buy it, I wore that gown from when it was too long on me too when it became skirt length.  Throughout school I was known for wearing unique outfits, from hats every day for a year (including a raspberry beret), lime green patent leather heels, to a long body-con velveteen leopard print Betsy Johnson dress (and years later I met her backstage right before I was going on the runway what a vibrant fabulous force she is!)  I have since learned to appreciate denim, and have traded in the outrageous for more body-con and couture, but the passion is still there.”

What is one winter fashion/beauty tips you use?

“For winter fashion, accessories keep functional layers exciting, so Obelo Jewelry, Ronaldo Designer Jewelry, and Artizan by Robin Barre are my goto’s for interesting statement pieces.  As for beauty, although I use Sunless Beauty Organic Spray Tanning and self-tanner throughout the year, in winter it’s obviously more essential I love that it’s organic and it smells like dessert. I’ve also fallen in love with TNT Agency for make-up, and I will be wearing all of them to award season and on New York Fashion Week runways in the new year.”
Quick will continue rising with appearances on red carpets, runways, and more during the upcoming year.

Amanda Marsh, the wife to firefighter Eric Marsh, joined the cast and crew this evening. She has made her message strong and proud in honor of the husband she lost. She has taken her pain and turned it to helping others. She created the Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters. This foundation provides assistance with, “heartbreak at its deepest level, and we have the ability and resources to help others dealing with the same loss and trauma” (Eric Marsh Foundation Website). This year our country is experiencing a loss of over 2 million acres due to wildland fires.  This film brings forward the battle and struggles these families and firefighters face to protect our homes, families, and wildlands.

Only The Brave Phoenix Premiere 4Chion Lifestyle

Tonight the premiere brought Hollywood actors to the Phoenix red carpet. They came to honor these men and to bring awareness to the struggles living their live fighting fires. Josh Brolin, his character is Eric Marsh in the film, in a behind the scenes clip states, “there should be a moment when the audience is educated on how tough it is to be a wildland firefighter.” The firefighters live in the most rugged conditions for weeks. They carry 40-50 lbs packs with their water, meals ready to eat, sleeping gear, and shower infrequently.

Miles Teller, his character is Donut in the film, says, “These guys go all over the country for two weeks at a time. They go home for two days to return for two more weeks. They do this for six to eight months each year. They work their butts off.”  The sacrifice these firefighters and their families make to protect our livelihoods.

Joseph Kosinski, film’s director, wanted to bring the vision to this film “that you do not need to carry a gun to be a hero. What firefighters do. That it is a war a war against mother nature. It felt grounded and real,” he states behind the scenes. This film brings this story to the scene. Eric Marsh brought this municipal firehouse to a Type 1 Crew hotshots.

Filming was in Santa Fé New Mexico for most of the film. The Yarnell part filmed last. James Dale Badge stated this evening, “We filmed Yarnell last. At that moment we had to trust that it was in us as actors. This is our job.” The film’s song, Hold the Light, is by Dierks Bentley, who grew up in Phoenix.  The sacrifice made by many to protect our wildlands, communities, and livelihood presents in this film. This film opens in theaters October 20, 2017. Check your local listing for times and tickets.
