It's a sunny almost 60 degree day in Stony Brook so we've got a really great menu today. Our chef's have been spannig the globe for today's ingredients.

Our appetizer comes from Norwalk, Connecticut with a recipe for getting a Cheesesteak in Philly ... from a South African??? Bakhiti Kumalo is up in Connecticut rehearsing with Paul Simon where we speak with him about FEBRUARY 19 at BORGHESE Vineyards on the North Fork. BK has a Jazz Quartet featuring fellow South African troubador Morris Goldberg. It's 3pm tomorrow!!! We also cover his recording with another old time friend from SA, Vusi Mahlasela (Performing at SOB's next TUesday February 22), and all things CheeseSteak???

The Second course is a Brazillian Dish via Seattle .... Vinicius Cantuaria and Bill Frisell perform tomorrow night as well: Le Poisson Rouge, NYC ... supporting their new eOne release titled Lagrimas Mexcianas and sharing their music. A really wonderful collaboration we like a lot! Go see for yourself tomorrow night, the 19th there's a late and Early and Late performance.

Our main course today is HOT TUNA. Caught their act at Tilles center two weekends ago, the Hot Tuna Blues Project with Charlie Musselwhite, Jim Lauderdale, GE Smith, Barry Mitterhoff, Scoota Warner and of course Jorma and Jack. Spoke to Jack and Jorma briefly after the show. They are doing terrific, and Jack is one funny guy! Look for their soon to be released Hot Tuna project on Greg Brown's label: Red House Records.

And of course a "recipe off the top of my head" for Sashimi Style Tuna with a really Delicous Asian Watermelon Sauce.

It's Quuick Easy and all on the menu today during Lunchtime.

Bon Apetite!
