Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Fair-Haired Mary Cocktail

Yellow tomatoes are generally less acidic than their red counterparts and you can also buy some varieties without any acidity in them, which allows more of the sweet flavor to be readily obvious. This is wonderful alternative to a Bloody Mary. Simply add 1 or 2 shots of vodka to the recipe below and enjoy.


For 1 Serving(s)


  • 6 ounce(s) yellow tomato juice*
  • 2 tablespoon(s) pure apple juice
  • 2 tablespoon(s) clam juice
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon(s) lemon pepper mustard
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) freshly chopped cilantro
  • Couple shakes hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) molasses
  • Pinch celery salt

Fair-Haired Mary Cocktail Directions

  1. Combine tomato juice/apple juice mixture with clam juice, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, molasses and celery salt. Mix well and use as you would any bloody mary mix.
  2. * Chop 2 large, room temperature, yellow tomatoes roughly. Puree them in a food processor or blender with the apple juice above until well pulverized. Remove and strain through fine-meshed seive to equal 5.5 ounces, pressing the flesh against the sides of the strainer.
