Jacoby's Restaurant & Mercantile
"...Salt & Time has hit a high mark, producing dry-cured sausages that any small, traditional village in Italy would be proud of. Runkle is taking the best of our local meats and making them better, using only salt, spices, skill, and patience. Kocurek Family Charcuteriewww.kocurekfamilycharcuterie.com..."
"...Remde's current charcuterie project, for the purposes of the short film context, focuses on Lawrence and Lee Ann Kocurek and how they and their dedicated team at Kocurek Family Charcuterie are working to recover European-style tradition and technique, with an emphasis on local ingredients. The Kocureks specialize in what mainstream bologna eaters might find repellent – blood sausages, pâtés, rillettes, and terrines..."
"...This Hawaiian-born national chain has a definite local connection with chef/partner Austinite Larry Kocurek on the range. Kocurek's island-inspired Texas festival menu includes kalua pork nachos, Mongolian ribs with hoisin barbecue sauce, grilled shrimp on skewers with wasabi cocktail sauce, and chocolate-soufflé brownies..."
"...Spending Friday Downtown at the Food Republic Interview Lounge at the W and the Taste of Texas kickoff event in Republic Square Park yielded lots of newsy tidbits to share. New Trace chef de cuisine Larry Kocurek is glad to be back in Austin, and his charcuterie skills are a regular feature on the new menus there..."
"...Shoppers were enthusiastic about having some of their favorite baked goods available there again, and Brinckman enjoyed becoming part of the market community. "As members of the market, we're encouraged to purchase ingredients from other vendors there, so I get my eggs from Smith & Smith, I use Larry Kocurek's bacon, sausage made from Richardson's pork, Round Rock Honey, and seasonal fruits, nuts, and vegetables from different farms..."

"... Legendary UT softball pitcher Cat Osterman ended her glittering career on the road in Oklahoma City, with a 2-0 Saturday loss to UCLA in the NCAA World Series. Osterman competed in the Olympics, and her record at UT included 136 wins, 85 shutouts, an NCAA record 2,256 strikeouts, and an amazing 20 no-hitters. Naked City Travis County turned a shade bluer Wednesday as District Court Judge Julie Kocurek officially retired her Republican spurs and declared herself a Democrat..."
"...The 23-year-old Killeen resident arrested last March after driving a car through a SXSW crowd gathered on Red River Street, killing four, was found guilty of capital murder in November and sentenced to life in prison. 6) The Plot to Kill Julie Kocurek..."
"...The warm spinach salad ($14) with chunks of fingerling potatoes, bacon lardons, and young greens in a sweet-tangy dressing topped by a soft-poached egg could certainly make a meal enhanced with servings from the bread basket. Flaky halibut is served on a bed of roasted vegetables ($38) and crispy-skinned snapper filet ($38) comes with a black-eyed pea ragout, and they paired exceptionally well with a wine, a Favaro Erbaluce from Piedmont, suggested by sommelier LeeAnn Kocurek..."

"...bench. District Court Judge Julie Kocurek had agreed to take the position adjudicating felonies, but her fellow criminal district judges refused, citing the bureaucratic hurdles of transferring mental health cases to her court and taking over parts of her docket...."
"...6, kicking off a three-week-long window for citizens to vote on which elements they like best. (Mayor Will Wynn and ECT board Chair Neal Kocurek will complete the first surveys.) An eight-page insert containing details of all four scenarios will be included in next week's Chronicle and other local papers..."
"...And apparently no sin was too old: Another fight flared when 427th Court candidate Karyl Anderson Krug was asked why she voted in the Republican primary in 1998. She said she couldn't remember for certain, but perhaps it was to vote for then-Republican Judge Julie Kocurek (who has since turned Dem)..."
"...Beverly Griffith's supporters would seem to make an even more interesting and diverse "Tribe." Griffith received the support of every environmental organization in Austin, neighborhood leaders from across town, as well as a slew of Democratic clubs like the South and West Austin Democrats. Admittedly this might constitute the "Tribe," but what of Griffith supporters like former Mayor Roy Butler, retired Admiral Bobby Ray Inman, Old Austin icon Willie Kocurek, NOKOA publisher Akwasi Evans and former aide to Lady Bird Johnson and living Democratic legend Liz Carpenter? Jeez Louise! If that were the "Tribe" I'd love to be a fly on the wall at their secret meetings! Can you imagine what the initiation rituals might be?..."
"...I filed for District Four after visiting with parents, teachers, and friends, without any prior political experience and without any agenda other than my interest in schools and children, much the same way in which Ave Wahrmund began her campaign. I sought advice from people such as Willie Kocurek, Gary McKenzie, and Tom Agnor, as well as other board members, and I know Ms..."
