You're Making Sauce! Not Soup!

Wise sayings from our LCB Chefs:

  • Too cold egg whites don't whisk up
  • High acidity apples have higher pectin
  • Grand Marnier - Yellow Band (ribbon) for cooking; Red Band for drinking
  • You're the chef - control the heat
  • Mushrooms will soak up pretty much whatever you offer them; use little butter
  • Don't eat wild snails - due to concentration of pesticides
  • When plating rare sliced meat put sauce under not over the meat
  • Poaching pears first ensures they release less liquid during frying
Just a few odd and ends - since I didn't actually make a dinner tonight and lunch was Sunday leftovers.
Maybe something interesting tomorrow.
