    If you went to grade school and high school sometime prior to the 2000s, then you likely share a school lunch experience that you and others would like to forget. Sickly iceberg lettuce that was passed off as salad. Worn out and over-salted canned vegetables pretending to be nutritious. Slices of pizza that were tougher than the soles of your shoes. And everything filled with enough preservatives, fat, and sodium to give a cardiologist nightmares. Continue...

There is a kitchen culture that is almost indecipherable to the average diner but is as essential to the life of a chef as his knife or wardrobe.

  • How to Make Buffalo Wing Sauce

    August 14, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Boston 0 Comments

    It’s hard to believe that just 30 years ago, restaurants and grocery stores were practically giving their chicken wings away. Nobody wanted them, not even Boston cooking schools.

  • Your Guide to Community-Supported Agriculture

    August 10, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Miami 0 Comments

    There has always been a strong do-it-yourself streak in America, especially when it comes to food, but not everyone can be a farmer. The next best thing, however, is to join a CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) program. These alternative food networks consist of individuals who pledge to support a farming operation through the purchase of shares. The members collectively share what is grown on the farm, including weekly boxes of farm fresh produce during growing seasons. Some farms offer other products like natural soaps, raw honey, coffee, eggs, and fresh meats. Many Florida culinary professionals rely on CSAs for both their personal and professional cooking.
