For our 40th episode we focused on FOOD! And remember Joannietime (Luke’s mom) – she joined our adventures in Atlantic City, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Texas and Oklahoma??! Well she was along for the delicious ride this week too!

Chefs for a day! We made Moroccan Salmon Pasta with Argan Oil

Posted on February 20th, 2011 in favourites,New Hampshire,The Balsams,Uncategorized,YouTube by alex and luke

I insist that you watch this video, then head out and pick up all of the ingredients, including the precious and delicious Argan Oil from Morocco, and recreate the dish for yourself (and then invite us over). You WILL NOT regret it. This is the most marvellously fresh, interesting, and mouthwatering pasta dish we have ever had, and the best part? We made it ourselves (with some guidance from The BALSAMS Executive Chef Joshua Berry of course)!!! Delicious!

A tasty lesson in goat dung…

This weekend we had the incredible good fortune of being invited into The BALSAMS kitchen to prepare a Moroccan salmon pasta dish with Chef Joshua Berry. We have much more footage to share with you that focuses on the preparation of the dish, but for now, we leave you with a lesson in Argan Oil. This is a delicacy, a rare treat, harvested in the most interesting of ways… I’ll let Chef explain – enjoy the video!

The Order

We’ve been wanting to create this video since we ended our road-trip in December. This is the order in which we visited every State, Province, and Territory in Canada and the United States as controlled by YOU, the followers of

alex and luke.
