Staff Recipe: Chicken Kitchen Chop Chop

ChickenEven though JBF Awards department staffer Janie Schneider is known around the office for the elaborate dinners she prepares for herself and law student boyfriend, Russell, it’s this simple, homey dish that she makes when she’s homesick for Miami. It’s her adaptation of the chicken and rice dish from the Chicken Kitchen chain (a South Florida cult favorite) that she enjoyed growing up. “When I moved to New York my sister (who still lives in Miami) would call me on her way home from Chicken Kitchen and I always wished I was in the car with her. So I decided to make my own version of Chop Chop. It’s not as good, but the curry mustard sauce reminds me of high school afternoons by the pool,” says Janie. “Okay, so it’s glorified fast food,” she admits. “Some say it’s similar to Arroz con Pollo, but when you’re Jewish and don’t have a Cuban grandmother to make that

The Bookshelf: The Curious Case of Amy’s Amazing Pink Cake

cake_200x250It was a few years ago that our colleague Phyllis first told us about the incredible pink-frosted cake she had at Amy’s Bread. I have to admit, we were a little skeptical. Cake? From Amy’s Bread? But several years later, the nostalgia-inducing, pink-frosted yellow cake with its delicate crumb has become our unofficial office birthday cake. Curiously, we've tried other colors of cake from Amy’s, and while good, none of them measures up in terms of moistness to the cakes with the pink frosting. How can the color of the frosting affect the moisture content of a cake, we’ll wonder as we take just another “sliver” and lick our plastic forks clean? Now that we have the recipe from The Sweeter Side of Amy’s Bread, our current theory is that the fondant that Amy adds to her pink frosting seals in the cake’s moisture. To confirm, we’ll ask Amy, herself
