    Amuse Bouche Recipes

    Here was a pretty good dish someone I know made the other day... leak and potato soup accompanied by another tasty vegetables, the potato is nicely shaped and put right in the middle of the soup making this a deconstructed dish.

    Chicken Piccata...Sauteed chicken, yellow squash, red peppers, red onion, garlic, broccoli, white wine, chicken stock, butter, lemon, capers, basil and some fresh bread with some extra pizza dough I had.
  5. All great information! I make pizza at home almost every Friday. I can get my oven to 550 and have found waiting for the 550 mark versus 500 greatly improves the results. I have two regular pizza stones, so I put one above the pizza about 2 inches to try and achieve a better effect. Not sure if it really helps though. On the dough, I have found creating a recipe and measuring ingredients by weight has always given me more consistent results.
  6. I didn't go to LCB but another culinary program at a career college. If one was a person with no knowledge or experience I think there is some value in a culinary program. For me I have been self taught in a lot of things prior to going and there was little information gained from going to school that I could have learned by watching a few videos and practicing at home. Instead of spending $40,000, a few good books and videos would do. Go buy ingredients you have never worked with and practice. Going to a school I guess "forces" you to stay on track though, where many people would lack discipline to train themselves. And actual experience in a restaurant wouldn't hurt either. All my opinion anyway.

    Stuffed napa cabbage stuffed with red peppers, fennel, shallot, and garlic. Side of sauteed rutabaga and turnip and some steamed broccoli. I didn't like some of the color but it tasted good.

    Dinner! 2011

    If you like a little heat, this dish wasn't too bad. A roasted pablano pepper stuffed with a cheesy risotto. Topped with a little smoked gouda cheese. On the side is a tomato and roasted pepper sauce, oh and a jalapeno, just in case there was not enough heat.

    Braised Napa Cabbage w/ Fennel Broth This was an attempt to make kind of a soup with the cabbage and some fennel. The broth is made with shallot, fennel, leek, garlic, white wine, and chicken stock. In the center is some black beans, a little crispy shallot, lemon zest, and then some blanched chayote squash around.
  11. The key to cooking turkey perfectly is to brine it 24-48 hours. Then whatever cooking method you decide on, use a thermometer to get it to the perfect temperature. And remember carry over cooking will continue to heat the turkey after it's removed from the heat.
  12. Well I only have 3 physical cookbooks but Google gives me about 46,000,000 sites with free recipes and ideas.

    This is a dish I cooked for Christmas dinner... Deep fried Cornish game hen that was brined with herbs; sour dough cranberry and date stuffing with apple; potatoes that were mashed, seasoned, and then baked; sauteed carrots with parsley; homemade cheddar buttermilk biscuits with sage butter. ______________________ Tony http://www.Facebook-of-Food.com >>> a social network dedicated to food!
