Chicken Saltimbocca1 Ultimate Bacon Stuffed Chicken Saltimbocca (Recipe Video)

Tips:

  • Try this easy Italian recipe to take boring chicken breasts over the top.
  • Smart secret to evenly cooked chicken breast:  Use a meat mallet to pound the chicken breast with two pieces of plastic sheet to make them even thickness and mess free.
  • The trick to cooking with wine:  You may not always drink the wine you cook with, but always cook with wine that you would drink.  To avoid metallic pan sauces, do not use cast iron pans when making sauces with wine. Use non-reactive pans or non-stick.

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

6  (6-oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ¼-inch thickness
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 fresh sage leaves
12 slices Italian prosciutto
3  tbsp    extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
¼ cup    fresh-squeezed lemon juice
½ cup    chicken broth
½ cup dry white wine
lemon wedges for garnish (optional)

Method:

Lightly season the pounded chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper.
Place 2 sage leaves on top of each breast, then lay two slices of prosciutto flat on top of the sage leaves.
Fold the chicken breast in half, so that the sage and prosciutto are inside.  It’s okay if the ends of the prosciutto are peeking out.
Heat olive oil in a large, non-stick sauté pan on medium-high.
CHEF’S NOTE: For best results, do not use cast-iron or any other reactive pan.
Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes per side, or until cooked through, and remove to a plate to keep warm.
Add lemon juice, chicken broth and white wine to the sauté pan, and stir to combine.
Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
Return the chicken to the pan and allow the sauce to simmer for 5 minutes, basting the chicken frequently.
To serve, pour the sauce over the chicken.
Season with black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
Serve with lemon wedges on the side.

Skateboarding in China: Grinding Ordos the Mongolian Ghost Town

In this video, director Charles Lanceplaine follows a group of skaters looking to try their tricks in a new and different environment… Ordos …only to discover a glittering, modern city devoid of human occupants. [quote: The Atlantic]

Skating ORDOS

China’s city of Ordos was built for 1 million people and is currently inhabited by just a few thousand. It’s been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles.

Ordos is a ghost town located in Inner Mongolia. Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots we decided to organize a skate trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.

Remembering Nanook of the North [Full Version]

Nanook of the North (also known as Nanook of the North: A Story Of Life and Love In the Actual Arctic) is a 1922 silent documentary film by Robert J. Flaherty. In the tradition of what would later be called salvage ethnography, Flaherty captured the struggles of the Inuk Nanook and his family in the Canadian arctic. The film is considered the first feature-length documentary, though Flaherty has been criticized for staging several sequences and thereby distorting the reality of his subjects’ lives. In 1989, this film was one of the first 25 films to be selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". File:Nanook of the north.jpgThe film was shot near Inukjuak, on Hudson Bay in Arctic Quebec, Canada. Having worked as a prospector and explorer in Arctic Canada among the Inuit, Flaherty was familiar with his subjects and set out to document their lifestyle. Flaherty had shot film in the region prior to this period, but that footage was destroyed in a fire started when Flaherty dropped a cigarette onto the original camera negative (which was highly flammable nitrate stock). Flaherty therefore made Nanook of the North in its place. Funded by French fur company Revillon Frères, the film was shot from August 1920 to August 1921. As the first nonfiction work of its scale, Nanook of the North was ground-breaking cinema. It captured an exotic culture (that is, Indigenous and considered exotic to European colonizers) in a remote location, rather than a facsimile of reality using actors and props on a studio set. Traditional Inuit methods of hunting, fishing, igloo-building, and other customs were shown with accuracy, and the compelling story of a man and his family struggling against nature met with great success in North America and abroad. Flaherty has been criticized for deceptively portraying staged events as reality, although staging events for the camera was the norm of documentary filmmakers of the time. "Nanook" was in fact named Allakariallak, while the "wife" shown in the film was not really his wife. According to Charles Nayoumealuk, who was interviewed in Nanook Revisited (1988), "the two women in Nanook – Nyla (Alice [?] Nuvalinga) and Cunayoo (whose real name we do not know) were not Allakariallak’s wives, but were in fact common-law wives of Flaherty.” And although Allakariallak normally used a gun when hunting, Flaherty encouraged him to hunt after the fashion of his recent ancestors in order to capture the way the Inuit lived before European influence. On the other hand, while Flaherty made his Inuit actors use spears instead of guns during the walrus and seal hunts, the hunting actually involved wild animals. Flaherty also exaggerated the peril to Inuit hunters with his claim, often repeated, that Allakariallak had died of starvation two years after the film was completed, whereas in fact he died at home, likely of tuberculosis. Flaherty defended his work by stating that a filmmaker must often distort a thing to catch its true spirit. Later filmmakers have pointed out that the only cameras available to Flaherty at the time were both large and immobile, making it impossible to effectively capture most interior shots or unstructured exterior scenes without significantly modifying the environment and subject action. For example, the Inuit crew had to build a special three-walled igloo for Flaherty’s bulky camera so that there would be enough light for it to capture interior shots. File:Robert Flaherty Nyla 1920.jpg At the time, few documentaries had been filmed and there was little precedent to guide Flaherty’s work. Since Flaherty’s time both staging action and attempting to steer documentary action have come to be considered unethical amongst cinéma vérité purists, because they believe such reenactments deceive the audience.

Bob Marley – Three Little Birds Lyrics

Don’t worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: don’t worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right!
Rise up this mornin,
Smiled with the risin sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin, (this is my message to you-ou-ou:)
Singin: don’t worry bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: don’t worry (don’t worry) bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right!
Rise up this mornin,
Smiled with the risin sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin, this is my message to you-ou-ou:
Singin: don’t worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. don’t worry!
Singin: don’t worry about a thing – I wont worry!

Singin: don’t worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: don’t worry about a thing, oh no!
cause every little thing gonna be all right!

Skate vs Chill a Video Mockumentary

WTF was that? Well technically it was this:

A Skit from Chill Magzine based on the Brazilian “Ilha das Flores” (Isle of flowers).

I know that doesn’t help it make any more sense, but now, at least you know.

I’ m not sure  if its the porno sounds, the hot chick faces or the funny accent but I can’t stop watching this video. Can you just imagine how cool that world would be… beer, babes and boards 24/7. Of course if your imagining it, you get to keep the announcer and the babes, oh what a life.
