Butler Academy on Expresso Morning Show – SABC 3

Posted on: September 19th, 2013 by Butler Academy 3 Comments

SOUTH AFRICAN BUTLER ACADEMY ON NATIONAL TV 

 

The South African Butler Academy had the pleasure of joining the Expresso Morning Show – SABC 3 on live television today!

 

“Movies and TV series like Downton Abbey and Remains of the Day portray the life of a butler for what is WAS… a humble existence below the stairs. Last week, however, a BBC report revealed that modern day butlers in Dubai easily earn one hundred thousand POUNDS annually — that’s nearly 1.6 million rand!

In comparison, the Royal family pay some of their butlers about 24 000 pounds or R375 000 a year. The Queen might not always get the pick of the crop, because the demand for butlers in exotic places, along with the salaries, are on the rise. The SA Butler Academy has trained 366 butlers in the last 5 years. What does a butler in South Africa earn? What can a modern day butler do for you? Can you afford one? ”

Butler Training – The art of ‘Smoked Salmon’

Butler Training –  What is Smoked Salmon?

 

Smoked salmon is a preparation of salmon, typically a fillet that has been cured and hot or cold smoked. Due to its moderately high price, smoked salmon is considered a delicacy. Although the term lox is sometimes applied to smoked salmon, they are different products.

Smoked salmon is a popular ingredient in canapés, often combined with cream cheese and lemon juice, or “bulked out” with other fish.

 

In Europe, smoked salmon may be found thinly sliced or in thicker fillets (such as “tsar fillet”) or sold as chopped “scraps” for use in cooking. It is often used in pâtés, quiches and pasta sauces. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon mixed in is another popular dish. Smoked salmon salad is a strong-flavored salad, with ingredients such as iceberg lettuce, boiled eggs, tomato, olives, capers and leeks, and with flavored yogurt as a condiment.

 

Slices of smoked salmon are a popular appetizer in Europe, usually served with some kind of bread. In the United Kingdom they are typically eaten with brown bread and a squeeze of lemon; in Germany they are eaten on toast or black bread.

 

In Jewish cuisine, smoked or brined salmon is called lox and is usually eaten on a bagel with cream cheese.

 

Smoked salmon is sometimes used in sushi, though not widely in Japan; it is more likely to be encountered in North American sushi bars. The Philly Roll combines smoked salmon and cream cheese and rolls these in rice and nori.

 

Butlers Tip:

 

 

Butlers in training went on an excursion to South Africa`s leading ‘Trout & Salmon Farm’ in Franschoek. The process from Hatching to eating is intense. Enjoy our latest course video:
