Oscar Night Menus by Jerry S. Marlowe, RPH

Arts and Leisure Section of The Times Reporter
March 3, 2010

It was twenty years ago when I first met up with Wolfgang Puck. He’s the chef who prepares the annual extravaganza of food for the Oscar Party night. I didn’t actually meet this legend of cuisine; my oldest Daughter Chris presented me with his early book entitled “The Wolfgang Puck Cookbook”. She inscribed it “to Wolfgang Amadeus Marlowe. It was Christmas Day, 1990.

I immediately started tackling this man’s recipes from Cream of Corn Soup with Gulf Oysters to Fettuccini and Mushrooms. Then I went on to make Grilled Salmon with garlic cream and tomato butter. Wow; we were on to the formula of a masterful chef! Every recipe was an Oscar nominee.

So a year passes and Chris trumps his ace cookbook with another called “Adventures in the Kitchen” which she edited to read “Wild in the Kitchen Adventures”, alluding to my cooking classes I did for many years. The title of my classes, “WILD IN THE KITCHEN” was borrowed with permission from my guru of cuisine, Will Jones?, a Dover native who wrote a cookbook by the same name. This 2nd cookbook by Puck once again topped the VARITEY Charts with Sautéed Crab Cakes with sweet red peppers. We ended up preparing these delicacies for Chris’s wedding dinner when she married Henry Kalouche in February of 1994. Then came seared Tuna steak Au Poivre which is a benchmark recipe my entire family has enjoyed many times. I’ve yet to try any of Chef Puck’s recipes that would not garner an Oscar nomination!

So now it’s Oscar time again and I decided to try to connect with Chef Wolfgang Puck, knowing he’d be coming up with yet another masterful evening of great food for the post Oscar party. His very accommodating press people, especially Maggie Boone from the famous Spago restaurant in Los Angeles, shared some of the dishes he’ll be dazzling the stars with after a hard night at the awards ceremony. We are very fortunate here in Tuscarawas County to have a sneak preview of what the stars will be devouring late Sunday evening. Hopefully someday they’ll create a new category and award Chef Puck an Oscar for his incredible efforts of serving over 400 celebrities after the Academy Awards ceremony!

Bon Appetite!
Jerry Marlowe

Local Pharmacist Attends PCCA International Seminar
Session provides continuing education in pharmacy compounding.
DOVER, OH, OCT. 19, 2006

Community Pharmacist JERRY MARLOWE of Marlowe’s Compounding Center located in downtown Dover recently attended Professional Compounding Centers of America’s (PCCA) three-day, International Seminar in Houston, Texas, October 12-14, 2006. More than 400 pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and practitioners located throughout the United States, Canada and Australia attended the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) seminar which featured the latest innovations in pharmacy compounding; the method of custom-preparing medications to meet physicians’ and patients’ unique needs

Keynote speakers at the symposium included: actress-author and breast cancer survivor, Suzanne Somers, who shared her personal story of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and Eldred Taylor, MD, a pre-eminent expert on BHRT.

JERRY MARLOWE and his staff regularly attend PCCA’s seminars and training courses, networking with colleagues and obtaining continuing training and education in the art and science of pharmacy compounding. The programs are formatted to enhance knowledge of the latest in compounding techniques, equipment and devices; preparation of various dosage forms; effective methods of meeting patient and physician medication needs; and administrative assistance in clean room and compounding laboratory design.

Pharmacists compound prescription medications for several reasons; the most important one is patient non-compliance. Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or are sensitive to standard drug strengths. With a physician’s prescription, JERRY MARLOWE can change the strength of a medication, alter its form to make it easier for the patient to ingest, or add flavor to make it more palatable. The pharmacists at MARLOWE’S COMPOUNDING routinely prepare medications using unique delivery systems including transdermal gels and penetrating creams.
