Anyone else watching this?  Didn't recognize Graham Elliot.  Kudos to him.


And the last episode featured a terrific cooking tip that I've never seen.


Gordon Ramsay needed to steep some aromatics in broth.  So he got a French press, put the aromatics into it, brought some broth to a boil in a pot on the stove, then poured it into the French press and let it sit.  After the proper amount of time, he pushed down the plunger to remove as much of the flavor as possible before continuing with the recipe.




I see lots of tricks, tips, techniques on these cooking shows, many of which I'll probably never remember to do. 


But this one?  I'm on it.
