Sirs in the Kitchen

Chairman: Ed Benson


Sirs in the Kitchen
The Sun Shines
Finally, the sun came out, the covers came off Casa Benson’s outside furniture and we could eat outside. And eat we did. Our May meeting featured a good ‘ol BBQ consisting of Pizza Rolls (not usual BBQ fare, but the guys love them), BBQ’d USDA Prime Tri Tip, Beans, Mac Salad, Spring Mix Salad, Garlic Chibatta Rolls and three types of ice cream made by dessert chefs Ron S., Jim S. and Thom.
And speaking of Thom, he and Sous Chefs George and Gordon did the heavy lifting for Tuesday’s meal. Thanks guys. And the set up, take down and clean up crews did an exemplary job.
The kitchen goes dark for June, when the SitK gang puts on the annual branch BBQ. We fire it up again on July 17, and right now I think we’ll do a Summer Fiesta featuring foods from South of the Boarder. So stay tuned, and Ms Donna and I will see all of you at the BBQ on June 19.
Sirs in the Kitchen is now at 52 members. If you want to join, drop Executive Chef Ed an email (, call him (925-943-7011) or catch him at the monthly meeting. All luncheons are at Casa Benson and cost $20; that’s the best deal in town.
