How to Tenderize Stewing Beef

Stewing Beef

Anyone that’s tried to cook stewing beef more than once knows that it needs a long, slow cooking time in order to break down the strong connective tissue and make the meat palatable and tender. But what if you need the meat to be tender before you cook it? What if instead of making beef stew you […]

How to Supreme an Orange

Supreme Orange

When I first created the garnishes section of my blog, to be honest, I didn’t know if it was something that was really worthwhile. But as time has marched on and I’ve found more and more pretty and delectable garnishes, I’ve found that it’s truly got some merit to it – especially when it’s something as dainty […]

How to Cook the Perfect Steak

Perfect Steak

We’re big meat eaters around here, so I’ve cooked a fair amount of steaks in my lifetime. It’s something that can be quite daunting at first, if only because you’ve paid so much money for this one piece of meat and you really don’t want to screw it up. I’ve been there and I get it. […]

How to Get Summer Fresh Tomatoes in the Dead of Winter

Summer Fresh Tomatoes

It’s winter. It’s cold, and now there is actually snow on the ground. And because it’s so cold, the top layer of snow has actually turned to ice. So you don’t only get to walk through it (taking three times as long as it normally would), you get to stomp with every step so that […]

Is Your Asiago Cheese Authentic?

Asiago

I first fell in love with Asiago cheese at the very first restaurant I cooked in. It was quite posh posh and we served a cheese plate that included Asiago cheese. I don’t know if I had ever tasted it before then, but I remember loving the distinct taste it had without being overpowering. When […]
