I am cooking for some Marines tonight at FRED'S as it is the USMC birthday, Nov 10, 1775. A typical USMC banquet includes steak, lobster and a cake ceremony in which the cake is cut with a marine sabre and and the first piece givin to the youngest marine and the second piece given to the oldest. I am using a Marine Kbar (fighting knife) instead of the sabre.
I am teaching a chuck-wagon cooking class at Central Market on Thursday. Sign on up!
Each year, the Marine Corps marks November 10th with a celebration of the brave spirit which compelled these men and thousands since to defend our country as United States Marines.
