Pearl Jam: Hail, Hail [HD] 2013-10-15 - Worcester, MA

Pearl Jam performs "Hail, Hail" live at DCU Center in Worcester, MA on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. This goes out to the little boy who wanted to fight me because I didn't want to sit down AT A PEARL JAM SHOW. It was adorable. Subscribe to my channel for more live Pearl Jam in HD!

My Food in pictures

Corn Chowder

Rick Williams
Sweet corn, chicken stock, thyme, and some patience

Honey + Comb

This was a gift from a little store in Perkasie, PA. That store has since closed, bummer

Seared steak sandwich

Arugula, scallions, not sure if that's goat cheese...

Lamb chops

I could eat these once per week. Little potatoes, too.

Caesar Salad

I LOVE making fresh caesar dressing, croutons, etc.

Buttermilk!

Littlenecks in broth

Pretty sure this was just clam juice, olive oil, white wine, tomatoes, parsley, garlic. Put them in a cast iron skillet and then put that on the grill.

End result of littleneck clam dish

Summertime dinner

Blackened Fish Tacos

I will make tacos any night, anywhere. Maybe my favorite type of food due to the simplicity of the concept. Get as involved as you like!

Sushi...

I occasionally embarrass myself for my family and friends. The cool thing is, they all say it's wonderful!

Wine and herbs

Amy Acker

Root was a beautiful character. Robust, badass with a heart. Hey, I miss her.

Person of Interest, anyone?

Funny thing about what I do here

My brother funkadelic P / Rick Williams

I find lots of joy in preparing food for people. My kitchen is where I feel most free, authentic and vulnerable in a good way.

The “process” of playing in my kitchen is really quite a kick. Oddly enough, while my food is typically pretty solid, I feel spent after plating and serving. Most of the time, I enjoy the “work” and not necessarily the “spoils”. Any other cooks feel that way?

Peaceful spot

Clean up is done, it's after bedtime. all I hear are crickets, frogs. The woods outside are alive.

Where do you make food? Gas or electric?

The Hold Steady - Chips Ahoy!

Uploaded by cigarettetenor on 2009-05-03.

The Hold Steady is a staple in my kitchen. I have NEVER seen them live, but on my list. I shout out to my friend P-Funk for turning me on to them a few years ago. Yeah, you’re right!

Tacos - I could eat them every night. I love the simplicity of concept, the depth of flavor you can achieve and the whimsy you can exhibit.

Pretty sure these are blackened mahi-mahi with cabbage, tomato, avocado, salsa and guacamole. Mahi-mahi is probably from Bucks County Seafood. Hi Mike!

The secret life of bread

There is wonderful bakery in Perkasie, PA by the name of The Breadbox and Bakery.

I’ve made bread once. It was a neat process, and hope to step that up over the colder months. Just need to create the time and experiement.

The fish was excellent. The pomegranate/orange salsa was even better. Standout shuffle track for prepping was Death Cab for Cutie's "I Will Follow You into the Dark", I encourage you to check this out. Beautiful song, beautiful playing. I have a confession to make. I've posted images and written about making sushi at home for...
