Sidewalker - Recipes

He might just seem like a really well-rounded guy, with interests spanning music, mopeds, and mixology. But 2011 New York Rising Star Mixologist Damon Boelte is actually a cocktails and spirits aficionado—and an antique bitters-bottles collector to boot. Boelte didn’t get into mixology immediately (he pursued his other passions first, including graphic design and rock music), but the discovery of his own talent behind the bar, combined with the free-ranging creativity of cocktail culture, convinced Boelte that serious bartending was a more than worthwhile professional pursuit.

Over the course of his rapid rise, Boelte has worked in various corners of the industry. At the famed LeNell’s LTD spirits shop, Boelte worked alongside LeNell Smothers, teaching classes on bourbon and cheese, wine, bitters, and rare spirits. And he’s worked with many spirits and beverage companies, including Maker’s Mark, Plymouth Gin, Tito’s Vodka, Corzo Tequila, the American Gin Company, Highland Park, and Stumptown Coffee.


Ya-Ka-May

I am part of the first of many confused generations to have lived only to witness a pop culture dominated by reproductions (of reproductions) of music, fashion, film, etc. And every so often, the repercussions surface. Such as when my co-workers discovered (in utter horror) that I had neither heard of The Police nor their hit song “Every Breath You Take” (1983), despite my prolonged obsession with Puff Daddy’s tribute to Notorious B.I.G., “I’ll be missing you” (1997). While the general omnipresence of recycled material has taught me to treasure anything truly original and good (with the exception of Forever 21), embarrassing situations like these have conditioned me to use words like “authentic” and “classic” with excessive caution.

But really, what is “authentic”? A reproductions is, in fact, an authentic product (and fascinating documentation) of pop culture’s evolution. And what makes something “classic” more deserving of respect? Many of today’s most revered “classic” artists were completely ostracized in their day because of their originality.

Treme also challenges the meaning and significance of these words used to describe New Orleans. In the second episode of Treme, street musicians Sonny (piano) and Annie (fiddle) are asked to play “something authentic” (after having performed Careless Love) by a group of church volunteers in town to help rebuild homes. Sonny scornfully offers to play the clichéd spiritual “When the Saints Go Marching In” for an additional fee, which is earnestly accepted (to his chagrin). This provides us with a well-needed reminder that New Orleans is a constantly evolving city that continues to produce some of nation’s best original work. So in honor of this message, I set out to find and explore a current authentic and original (obviously) New Orleanian album and dish.

But I didn’t have to look very far. Galactic, a seriously funkdafied jazz quintet known for fusing the modern and retrospective musical styles of New Orleans, was featured in the latter scenes of the same episode. Galactic produces an avant-garde sound by incorporating progressive electronic techniques, and a wide range of musical genres, from hip-hop, rock, blues, to electronica. And thanks to my musically au courant boyfriend (who first introduced me to Galactic), I had a copy of their recently launched album, “Ya-Ka-May”, which so happened to be the perfect subject for my investigation.

Ya-Ka-May might just be the most entertaining original musical treat of the century (for the ears AND ass). You will never hear anything quite like it, and you will never otherwise see your booty bounce in such an uncontrollably delightful and inexplicably soulful manner. If you are sneakily procrastinating in an office with the type of cubicles that reach just above the shoulders, I suggest that you wait to get home before watching the two videos below. But if you are in an environment to safely act upon a bootyful call, by all means, listen/watch it all! **My favorite songs on the album are “Boe Money”, “Katey vs. Nobby”, “Double It”, and “You Don’t Know”, which are all not available online (for free). But check out the samples here.

There is a definitive explanation for the corollary booty bounce: “bounce”! Confused? Bounce music is a style of hip-hop native to New Orleans, characterized by “call and response” (over lyricism) and hypersexual chants and call-outs (the Mardi Gras Indian kind, not the NYC construction worker kind). Bounce influenced much of the nationally recognized southern rap of the ‘90s, such as the works of Juvenile, Three 6 Mafia, and Lil Jon. Anyways, Ya-Ka-May creatively incorporates the sounds of new bounce artists (Cheeky Blakk, Big Freedia, Katey Red, Sissy Nobby) with the “seemingly disparate” but “intrinsically connected” sounds of the new and established New Orleanian jazz, funk, and brass artists (Trombone Shorty, Corey Henry, Irma Thomas, Big Chief Bo Dollis, Allen Toussaint). Hence the booty bounce!

Ya-Ka-May, the Soup

As it turns out, “Ya-Ka-May” is the name of a very peculiar and popular New Orleanian street food! Ya-Ka-May is a multi-ethnic noodle soup that much like Galactic’s Ya-Ka-May album, is composed of “seemingly disparate” ingredients – spaghetti pasta, beef broth, tender stewed beef, green onion, boiled egg, Cajun seasoning, soy sauce, and hot sauce. Ya-Ka-May is typically sold in Asian-American run bodegas in predominantly African-American neighborhoods across New Orleans, served in Styrofoam cups, and consumed with forks. It is also perceived as a miracle hangover cure, hence the nickname, “Old Sober”.

*smoking Chronic + dRUNK = CRUNK

The origins of Ya-Ka-May are heavily disputed. But I am inclined to agree with Leah Chase, a prominent New Orleans Chef (aka Queen of Creole Cuisine) whose restaurant, Dooky Chase, served as a gathering/meeting place during the Civil Rights movement. According to Mrs. Chase and a number of other local sources, the concept of Ya-Ka-May originated in New Orleans’ now extinct Chinatown, which was established by the Chinese immigrants who were brought from California in the mid 19 th century to build the railroads in Southern Louisiana. The Chinatown was further developed by the Chinese immigrants who came to work the sugar plantations after the fall of slavery. Check out what Leah Chase has to say here:

Legend has it that this geographical hub was adjoined to a once thriving African-American neighborhood. And it was during this time that the basic Asian concept of noodles and soup evolved (according to local tastes) to what is now known as Ya-Ka-May. The New Orleans Chinatown and surrounding districts ultimately languished, but the dish was “kept alive by the poor, the hung-over, and the corner markets run by Asians serving Blacks,” according to the Po Boy Views of New Orleans.

Ya-Ka-May is very easy and inexpensive to make. And as you will see, it also has a ton of soul. The best part? It is incredibly flavorful, yet gentle on the stomach (grant it you don’t overdo it with the hot sauce), and therefore, the perfect New Orleans “Old Sober”!

So there you have it! An authentic and original New Orleans album and dish!

Let’s Get Rid of Our Hurtin’!

HHC’s Ya-Ka-May Soup – New Orleans “Old Sober”

Ingredients (serves 4)

2 lbs of stewing beef roast chunks
2 quarts of water
1 beef bouillon cube
1 tsp of SlapYa Mama, or your favorite Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp of onion powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
½ lb of spaghetti noodles
2 hard boiled eggs (1/2 egg per bowl of soup)
¼ cup of green onions, sliced
1 tbsp of toasted sesame seeds (my twist!)
Soy sauce and Hot sauce to taste

1. Place the stewing beef in a Crockpot (note – I halved the recipe). Add the water, beef bouillon cube, Cajun seasoning, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. **If you don’t have a Crockpot, place all of the above ingredients in a stockpot and bring to a boil reduce the heat and simmer for 2 hours, or until the meat is tender.

2. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti noodles according to package instructions, and boil the eggs.

3. To assemble the soup, place a serving of spaghetti noodles in the bottom of a bowl. Ladle about 1-2 cups of the beef and broth over the noodles so that they are almost completely submerged.

4. Add a boiled egg half. Sprinkle with sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds. Add a few dashes of soy sauce, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce (optional). Yes, that is Katrina Storm Sauce you see there. I picked it up along with the Slap Ya Mama during my last visit to Natchitoches.

And voilà! A steaming hot and spicy bowl of Ya-Ka Mein. Ok.. let’s try…

**slurp slurp slurp** **Mmmmmmmm** **slurp slurp slurp** **Mmmmmmmm**

OMG, I want more. But I’m so full. I can’t really justify eating another bowl. Well… unless….

5 Delicious Must-Try Beer Combinations

As if beer wasn’t already awesome enough on its own, mix it in a cocktail for even more deliciousness.

Eve’s Black Heart Cider & Beer Cocktail

This is a really simple and quick cocktail to mix-up and is especially delicious if you love apples. Fine Cooking used both hard cider and apple brandy in this tribute to the sinful biblical fruit plus some Guinness, but you can use any Irish Dry Stout to bring darkness into Eve’s heart.

Beer Jello Shots

This is a classic party shot, but with a delicious little twist and we’re not just talking a lime twist here. The Food Network managed to get both lager beer and tequila into one little shot.

Spiked Hot Chocolate

Just hearing the name of this recipe makes us salivate shared on the Beeroness from the Gourmet Kitchen cookbook by Jennifer Farley this recipe is warm winter goodness with caramel on top and bourbon barrel-aged stout inside.

Image by: Jennifer Pallian on Unsplash

Sidewalker Beer Cocktail

This Sidewalker takes a backseat to nobody. Using chilled Hefeweizen, this Bon Appetit treat was submitted by Prime Meats, so we take that to mean that it’ll be great with meat especially BBQ.

Image by: Julia D’Alkmin on Unsplash

Blacker & Tanner

This cocktail is twice as strong as the usual Black & Tan which is made with stout and pale ale. Fine Cooking cranked up those ABVs a notch by using a double IPA and an imperial stout. The original recipe calls for a pint glass, but we highly recommend a snifter glass because the ABVs are so high you might want to slow it down, serve a little less, sip and enjoy!

Off The Beaten Palate: Lump Crab Cakes with no stuffing- hard to find!

I have had more waiters out-right lie to me about the contents of their 'lump crab cakes'.
Maryland Lump Crab Cakes made to perfection, have no stuffing, and are hard to find.
But I've tasted these gems before.
What used to be Sidewalker's restaurant, in uptown Manhatten, made incredible Maryland, Lump Crab Cakes, that had no stuffing and they were delicious! All crab meat!
I was trying to figure out what was binding the ingredients together and made them perfectly shaped- never fell apart.
Can egg alone, bind the crab meat? Peraps they snuck some panko in there?
All the recipes I've found have breading or flour.
If you have a good recipe-with no stuffing, I'm ready to give it my taste test.

Note: when you ask a waiter if the 'lump crab cake' has stuffing, and the first word they utter is, "umm", beware!
Do I have to go "Off The Beaten Palate"?


Beer Makes Everything Better--5 Cocktail Recipes Made With Beer!

Icy, cold brews don't have to come served in just a traditional mug though.

In honor of this year's big game, where the Denver Broncos will go head-to-head with the Seattle Seahawks, put a spin on those beers by mixing them up in cocktails.

Take a peek at these beer cocktail-inspired recipes!

1. Get the party started with a Firecracker—a Bud Light firecracker, that is. To create this drink, simply mix:

3/4 pint Bud Light
3/4 oz. rum
1/4 oz almond liquer

2. Or, for Seattle Seahawks fans, add one of team's colors into the mix by whipping up a Five Green Brothers drink, combining:

5 oz rum
2 oz coconut-flavored rum
2 oz blue curacao liquer
1 splash of Bud Light
Citrus Soda

3. For Broncos fans, how about a Heavy Navel? Consider adding a splash of orange juice to these items to give it some of the team's color flair.

1 oz Bud Light
1 oz peach schnapps
1 oz vodka

4. Impress your guests with the Sidewalker cocktail, combining:

1 ¼ cups fresh lemon juice

3/4 caps pure maple syrup (grade b is preferred)

6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

To prepare this, stir the first four ingredients in a large pitcher and add one cup of ice. Then, cover and refrigerate it for about 2 hours until it's chilled. Once you've removed it, gently stir in the beer and club soda. Next, fill 12-oz. highball glasses with ice and pour in the cocktail. Garnish the glasses with lemon wedges and serve it up.

5. Or, try out the Bloody Beer—a Bloody Mary-michelada hybrid created by Stumptown Coffee founder and 2013 Best Restaurant Owner Duane Sorenson.

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

8 tablespoons fresh lime juice

To prepare this one, mix the salt and red pepper flakes on a small plate. Then, rub the rims of 8 pint glasses with a lime wedge. Next, dip the glasses in the chile salt and fill them with ice. After that's done, add 1/4 cup tomato juice, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, a dash each of hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and 12 oz. lager to each glass. Then, garnish with lime wedges and serve.

Never argue with a stranger, ever, for any reason. You stand to gain literally nothing, will lose valuable energy and time, and will only alienate yourself from those around you. Worse yet, you will never convince them.

Never out yourself as someone with entrepreneurial aspirations, around normies. They will only react the way you experienced. Again, this drains your energy, makes them feel bad, and makes you look like an a$.

Here's my own example, from yesterday/today on Facebook. Apparently I don't follow my own advice.

A friend of mine posts some meme about credit card rewards not creating financial security for people. Dave Ramsey type stuff.

One of his Fbook friends asks the question: "what’s your recommendation to build capital to begin to do things like flip homes?".

Total noob question, so I reply with a noob answer:

Me - direct quote: "flipping homes is not all it's cracked up to be. The TV shows only show the successful, not the thousands of people who bust out because they mis-timed the market or bought the wrong neighborhood or ran into unforeseen issues that blew out their budget.

So many moving parts to a flip . If you really want to go that route, your best bet is to find other people doing it and put in the sweat equity for a few flips to see how it's done. Don't put your whole pile of loot on something you don't really understand."

Him - direct quote: "since you really don’t know anything about me, the next time you feel like lecturing me, you should probably look at how you are talking to people. I didn’t say I wanted to be like HGTV or that this was a decision being made on a Saturday morning after watching rehab addict or something. I already understand a lot about the market and the hidden costs, which is why the first house I would flip if I were going to do it, wouldn’t be some crack house. This is something that I plan to look at over the next year or so while I continue to build capital.

I have already done plenty of contract type work in my home from two bathroom renovations, a kitchen renovation, electrical and plumbing work, and all kinds of drywall work as well as laying floors, and renovating the rest of the 1400 square feet in my home, I’m fully aware of hidden costs and their effects on budgets."

There you have it folks - renovating your bathroom and kitchen makes you qualified to flip houses. Never mind your originally stupid question to begin with.

I look like the a**hole and get f*ck all for my sage advice. I'm such a dumbass.

Grilled Spiralized Brats with Sauerkraut:

What’s more keto than meat on a stick!? Can I get an amen? Can I get a hallelujah?

Ok, I know. I’m weirdly enthusiastic about meat on a stick.

But, the reason why I love this variation on cooking a brat is because of surface area. Spiralizing a bratwurst, a hot dog, or any other kind of sausage is just truly so much more delicious than just a regular old grilled one.

Granted, this may not warrant a full recipe but it did warrant sharing! Find the full step by step tutorial below for these amazing Grilled Spiralized Brats with Sauerkraut to make for your next Oktoberfest!
