The Beehive Blog Features: Doc & Local Joints TV!

Utah has great tweeps and there are few as active and engaging as the tweep @IGoByDoc, aka Darin Berntson.  Doc is a social media maven and has been actively working with clients in the realms of internet marketing and social media over the past five years.  "I fell in love doing the ins and outs of Social Media over the last couple of years, so I decided to focus more on that rather than typical internet marketing strategies.  For me, my favorite thing is to talk to a business, and see how we can help them succeed online."
Doc's newest venture combines his love of social media, his local business strategies and another favorite - video.  Local Joints TV launched at the beginning of May with Doc and his great smile in front of the camera talking to local Salt Lake City & Utah County business owners.
Episode One was Doc talking to Smashburger in Draper, Utah and all the Beehive Blog can say is - Watch out Food Network - Utah has a rising star!

For Doc and Local Joints TV, the philosophy is "behind every business is a great story and we are here to tell them".  Doc figured that video was the best way to get these stories out.  "Local Joints TV is an everyman's version of some bigger shows but with a local feel and favor.  On our show, we are focusing on businesses that are in the food, fun and entertainment categories."

Green Thai Curry - Homemade Paste

This is one of my favorite recipes - the only issue is that I cannot give you amounts so let your taste buds be your guide ... I watched an awesome show on the UK Food Channel and the chef was just tossing things into the bowl.  I cook that way alot :) ... plus this is a great excuse to use those nifty hand mixers!

Green Thai Curry Paste:
  • S&P
  • Coriander Seeds
  • Cumin Seeds
Grind these with Mortar & Pestle.
Add into bowl with:
  • small green chilis (seeds control your heat!) - approx 15
  • garlic - approx 4 cloves
  • roughly chopped shallots
  • grated ginger
  • lime zest
  • fresh lemongrass
  • coriander stalks
  • thai basil leaves (I use regular basil in small amt if I cannot find thai)
Quick blend to make the paste.
You will also need:
  • Coconut Milk (several cans on hand)
  • Aubergines - Eggplant - chunked
  • Palm Sugar
  • Lime leaves
  • fish sauce
  • Meat of Choice
  • Additional Vegetables if you desire
Add the paste to a cooking pot and add coconut milk (1-2 cans).
Coat your meat and add the aubergine chunks to pot.
Add more coconut milk.
Add palm sugar - light!
break lime leaves on top.
Simmer x30-40 minutes.
Just before serving add basil leaves and a dash of fish sauce.
