More news for 2011

   As Surfcasters Journal Magazine grows there will be additions (and no too many subtractions I hope :-))

    Congrats to Andrew Chase. I am excited about this addition. It could be cool to have some new and different recipes to try. Could you also try to include more pictures of Padma, LOL

    Zeno, my family owns two places in Bonita Springs, FL. Very nice spot and I have seen plenty of fish over there off the beach. I did not fish there, usually chasing the kids around and having family time with the relatives. I can find out if you like regarding local hot spots, but no guarantees.

    Padma is usually pretty straight edge on the show and looks great in all but my god that is one of her best shots…I can only imagine the view from Chase’s end lol

    Hey Z…I would love to see more contests like you had back in the day picking favorite photos, easter eggs, random stuff like that.

    Congrats Chase!

    I do not know how well he cooks, but if he cooks as well as catches fish – the food must taste great!

    I tried Andrew’s “Prosciutto Bass Recipe” & it was incredibly awesome. I look forward to stealing some of John Chase’s brothers great recipes.

    I’m honored that Zeno asked me to contribute!!
    I know a lot of you are accomplished cooks so I’ll try to keep a balance between basic techniques and some more advanced or un-usual dishes and ideas.
    In the interest of full disclosure, that picture with Padma is now 11 years old; time flies!!
    She still looks amazing, though. Me, I’ve added some gray.
    Thanks for the well wishes and compliments(Hi Predrag!!)and talk to you guys soon,
