Welcome to Culinarians Day!


Today we honor culinarians! They are cooks or chefs who are experts in cooking, preparing, presenting, and serving food. Today we celebrate and thank them for the many ways they use food to satisfy us!

While professional culinarians tend to work in restaurants or commercial kitchens, the culinary arts have a much humbler beginning. It is believed that the roots of culinary arts sprouted when someone either threw a piece of meat on a fire or found an animal that had been cooked by a forest fire. From there, advancements in agriculture, the expansion of culinary techniques, the domestication of livestock, and the introduction of earthenware and stoneware all helped with culinary development.

Boeheim’s Army scrimmaged Syracuse’s young basketball team. Here’s the scouting report (PS; $; Waters)


Old met new at the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center last week.

A host of former Syracuse players preparing to suit up for Boeheim’s Army in The Basketball Tournament scrimmaged against current Orange players, including the half-dozen incoming freshmen.

Rakeem Christmas, who graduated in 2015, went up against Mounir Hima, with Christmas using his massive 250-pound frame against the 7-foot transfer from Duquesne.

Andrew White, owner of one of the sweetest shooting strokes in SU history, commented on a kid with a jump shot whose name he didn’t know, referring to Chris Bunch by the freshman’s jersey number.

Tyler Ennis looked into the mirror as he went up against Judah Mintz, who could start for the Orange as a freshman just as Ennis did back in 2013-14.

“It’s always different playing guys,” Ennis said. “You see their highlights when they commit. You keep in touch with the coaches and you know what’s going on. But seeing them in person, I’m excited for this year. I think we have a young team.”

Here is more of what the former Syracuse players had to say about the next generation of Orange:

Mounir Hima

Although he’s a 6-foot-7 forward, C.J. Fair noted the battle that took place under the basket between Christmas and Hima.

“They had a big man that was battling Rak,” Fair said. “Rak’s a big load, but (Hima) was there for the fight though.”

Hima averaged just 1.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in only 9.6 minutes per game as a redshirt freshman at Duquesne last year. Christmas, remembering his own sometimes arduous development, smiled when asked about Hima.

Syracuse Basketball: Encouraging developments with 4-star, 5-star targets (itlh; Adler)

When word recently broke that 2023 four-star big man Joseph Estrella plans to officially visit Syracuse basketball in early August, that got me thinking.

The Orange coaching staff, from my personal perspective, lately seems to have some nice momentum with various recruiting targets in the 2023 and 2024 cycles.

Of course, prospects in the 2024 class likely have a long way to go in their recruiting processes. And in 2023, the ‘Cuse doesn’t yet have any verbal commitments.

But still, Syracuse basketball coaches have been out and about watching recruits in person on the AAU circuit during July live periods, which is necessary and also encouraging.

Official, or possibly unofficial, visits to the Hill are planned or in the works by several 2023 and 2024 prospects. Recent media reports note that Orange coaches are recruiting 4-stars and 5-stars hard.

For me, naturally getting some commitments is important. I also find it fascinating to wonder what ‘Cuse coaches are telling 2023 and 2024 targets as it relates to head coach Jim Boeheim and when he might retire.

There’s a lot to unpack with recent Syracuse basketball recruiting efforts.

Let’s start with the 2023 class. My sense is that the Orange is prioritizing four rising seniors at this juncture.

One is three-star combo guard Elijah Gertrude, who received a ‘Cuse offer at the beginning of July. The 6-foot-3 Gertrude is with the Albany City Rocks in Nike’s EYBL league and Hudson Catholic Regional High School in Jersey City, N.J.

A fast-rising player, Gertrude for my money is a four-star, top-50 prospect in 2023. He recently said to college basketball insider Adam Zagoria on zagsblog.com that he “absolutely” plans to visit the ‘Cuse.

The 6-foot-11 Estrella, a power forward/center, is out of the New England-based Middlesex Magic in the Under Armour Association league and will spend his senior season at the Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H.

Syracuse Basketball: Fast-rising City Rocks guard ‘absolutely’ plans to visit (itlh; Adler)


Soaring three-star combo guard Elijah Gertrude, who is one of the hottest prospects in the 2023 class, said in an interview that he plans to visit Syracuse basketball.

At the beginning of July, the Orange coaching staff offered a scholarship to the 6-foot-3 Gertrude, who suits up on the AAU circuit for the Albany City Rocks in Nike’s EYBL league.

In recent days, amid the annual Peach Jam tournament in North Augusta, S.C., media reports indicated that Syracuse basketball head coach Jim Boeheim and several of his assistants had been in attendance for at least one of Gertrude’s games.

By the way, if you want to check out some of Gertrude’s box scores during Peach Jam, they are available on the EYBL Web site.

Syracuse basketball recruit Elijah Gertrude has balled out in grassroots basketball lately.

A rising senior at Hudson Catholic Regional High School in Jersey City, N.J., Gertrude is presently ranked as three stars and inside the top-150 nationally in the 2023 cycle, according to numerous recruiting services.

However, his national ratings are poised to skyrocket, based on his play this spring and summer in AAU competitions. For my money, Gertrude is going to end up as a four-star, top-50 prospect in his class.

He told college basketball insider Adam Zagoria in a recent interview that he “absolutely” anticipates taking a visit to the Hill at some point, which is highly encouraging.

Not too long ago, 2022 national champion Kansas offered Gertrude, whose other offers include from Virginia, St. Bonaventure, Seton Hall, Pittsburgh, St. John’s, Iona, Saint Peter’s, Rutgers and Temple.

Squash? Corn? Maple syrup? See valuable NY crops, which ranks 1st (PS; $; Tampone)


Agriculture is a big part of New York’s past and the state remains a leading producer of multiple crops today, according to a recent list from Stacker.

The list uses data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to rank the most valuable crops grown in New York. The data also show which states lead production of the crops in the U.S. The values shown are accurate as of July 16.

Among New York’s top 10 most valuable crops, the state is in the top five nationwide for maple syrup, beans, squash, cabbage and apples.

New York’s highest ranking crops nationwide are cabbage and apples. Its production for both of those items ranks second in the country.

Obviously, the Boeheim's Army SU alums aren't going to bad-mouth anybody on the current team but that doesn't make their favorable comments meaningless. I was especially interested in the talk about Mounir Hima:
“They had a big man that was battling Rak,” Fair said. “Rak’s a big load, but (Hima) was there for the fight though.”
“He’s going to be good,” Christmas said. “Long wingspan. That’ll work in the zone. I wish I could stay longer and show him the ropes. When kids come here, they learn from everybody. He’s got to listen to Coach and everything will work.” (I wish he could stay and show him the ropes, too.)

It doesn't surprise me that Judah Mintz was impressive. I think we all expect a lot of him this year. I've speculated that Mintz is so good that our other five recruits, all of whom are at least 6-6, could be in the mix at forward, which made these comments on Quadir Copeland interesting:
"When he played at Syracuse, Tyler Ennis was generously listed at 6-feet, 2-inches. Syracuse freshman Quadir Copeland stands 6-feet, 6-inches, but possesses the skills of a guard. “He’s a huge guard,” Ennis said. “He doesn’t look like a guard, but watching him play, he is one.”

Andrew White was impressed with Chris Bunch, (and apparently not dismayed by his release point):
“My main matchup was No. 5,” White said. “Good shooter, tall kid, knockdown shooter, athletic, high IQ. He had confidence. It was a great matchup.”

And if CJ Fair likes Benny Williams, maybe we should, too:
"C.J. Fair saw a little bit of himself in Williams, a 6-8 forward who played 11.5 minutes per game as a freshman last season. “He’s going to be good,” Fair said. “He’s got good confidence. He’s got a good offensive game. He competes and goes hard. I like his game. That’s the guy I paid attention to the most.” If he's got a good offensive game now, that will be a major development.

And they liked the freshmen's confidence.



"This is the classic CBS theme to NFL football from 1965-1969. The song is Confidence, as known as the Walter Mitty March. Enjoy."
