Microplane To Revolutionize Food World. Again.

Microplane Has Done It Again!

Innovative All In One Avocado Tool - My Thoughts - New Recipes

All in one tool allows you to cut, pit, and carve avocados with ease

My Thoughts

It's no secret. I love Microplane! What isn't to love? Family owned and operated, renowned for quality ranging from home cooks to professional Chefs, their tools make life in the kitchen easier. Microplane is my preferred brand which is why when they asked me to test their latest invention, the all-in-one avocado tool I couldn't wait to hit the test kitchen.

This one tool features a straight edge, pit remover, and scoop. No more knife to cut, knife to remove the pit and a spoon to scoop out the fruit. This tool rocks!

The Coffee Chef Recipe

This is how I do it. As with all recipes, I encourage you to make this guacamole according to your individual taste. Turn loose. Experiment. Have fun! A very big THANK YOU to my wife Amy. This blog post would not be possible without her help. To view a short video featuring the Microplane Avocado Tool.

6 - 8 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes ish


2 large ripe avocados
1 medium tomato, cored & seeded
1/2 small red onion
1/8 cup Mexican lime zest
Juice from 1 to 2 limes
1 JalapeƱo
2 limes
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

*** If you love coffee, feel free to add 1 - 2 pinches of fresh roasted espresso!


Remember ... food is supposed to fun. If you aren't having fun, reach out! I will help you.

STEP 1: Using the straight edge, cut from the top
all the way around.

STEP 2: Twist the avocado in opposite directions
so as to "open" it, revealing the pit (seed).

STEP 3: Hold your tool firmly with the bottom
(white end with the three prongs) facing the pit
then with some gentle force, stick the pit, twist, lift.
It will come out easily. Set the pit aside or discard it.

STEP 4: Using the rounded portion, you can scoop
out the fruit or cube it.

STEP 5: Core and seed the tomato. This helps
prevent your guacamole from being unnecessarily
watery, which leads to a richer, creamier texture.

Chop your onion and jalapeno, zest your lime, and
add all of it to the bowl. 

STEP 6:  Squeeze the lime juice into the guacamole,
sprinkle garlic salt to taste.

STEP 7: Gently mash the guacamole until you reach
your desired consistency. Then ... enjoy!

Bryan-David Scott 90th Oscars Celebration Tour

I'm baaaaack! Too much time has passed since I last wrote. Over the next several days I will be changing that. For weeks we have been wrapping details on my 90th Oscars Celebration Tour. The following press release and images are official Bryan-David Scott tour promotional pieces.

Contact:  Jan Christoph Thomsen 


Celebrity Chef and iconic Luxury Coffee Specialist Bryan-David Scott is scheduled to serve Hollywood's greatest during his annual Oscars Celebration tour

A rare, custom crafted, 100 point luxury coffee priced at $2,200/lb will be served

The 90th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will honor the best films of 2017 and will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California at 5:00 p.m. PST on March 4, 2018. The ceremony will take place after its usual late-February date to avoid conflicting with the 2018 Winter Olympics. During the ceremony, AMPAS will present Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony will be televised in the United States by ABC, produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd and directed by Glenn Weiss. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel will host for a second consecutive year, making Kimmel the first person to host back-to-back ceremonies since Billy Crystal in 1997 and 1998.

HOLLYWOOD, CA (February 8, 2018) -- “Bryan-David Scott is becoming a Hollywood icon,” said Jan Christoph Thomsen, CEO, professional soccer agent, celebrity host and avid fan of the famed Chef. "Bryan-David brings to L.A. a magic and flair that leaves his guests in awe. Between his chef-work and phenomenal 100 point luxury coffees he has built a solid reputation internationally; he represents the epitome of tour de force."

“This Oscars season is going to rock! We're bringing in Wagyu steaks from Japan, fresh Norwegian Blue Circle certified salmon, and of course a beautiful 100 point coffee," said the Chef. "Every year, we craft a rare, custom blend appropriately named Oscar®. We can only produce 11 kg this year; it is a connoisseur's dream come true."
