  • 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.

    Sure, it’s a ham and cheese sandwich. But is it just another ham and cheese sandwich? No, no absolutamente! The Cuban sandwich, or Cubano, is a deceptively simple and complexly flavored treat. With only four ingredients – ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, and dill pickles – it is both easy and inexpensive to make, but the flavor payoff is well beyond its simplicity. Continue...

  • Kale: The Champion of Green and Leafy

    May 24, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Miami 0 Comments

    Popeye has some serious competition from kale for his dearly loved green of choice. Spinach may be “strong to the finich”, but kale may pack an even stronger nutritional punch. We’ve all heard the experts say that we need to eat more green leafy vegetables. They are rich in nutrition and assorted health benefits. We know all this, but for some reason, we just aren’t following their advice. We thank them kindly for their advice and pass over the greens at the grocery on our way to potatoes or corn to fulfill our daily vegetable requirements. Corn and potatoes are great, but they are far from green and leafy. Continue...

Just right for any occasion – potlucks, picnic, holidays, birthdays – the salad is the perfect springtime food. Let’s take a look at a few. Continue...

  • Five Uses for Uncommon B-List Berries

    April 24, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Miami 0 Comments

    When it comes to berries, most of us stick to the big three: strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. While there is nothing wrong with these delicious, nutrition-filled fruits. Many of our childhoods have some fond memories attached to these three berries: picking your own strawberries from a patch on a blazing hot summer day, hot blueberry pancakes on a lazy Sunday morning, or a casual walk through a roadside farm stand looking for the perfect pint of raspberries.

  • How to Properly Dice Vegetables

    April 16, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Miami 0 Comments

    As any cooking enthusiast knows, one of the most important steps in vegetable preparation can also be the most challenging and consequently dangerous ones. Holding a sharp blade anywhere near your fingers can often be frightening. If you watch cooks with a culinary education background cut veggies, it appears to happen in one sweeping motion, with a slight movement of the wrist and that pleasant dicing sound, viola magically the vegetables are sliced in identical chunks ready to be tossed into the recipe. Okay, so back up. Chances are the first time you grabbed that knife and prepared to slice and dice, things didn’t go so smoothly. Try following these easy steps for dicing larger veggies and your culinary education begins now! Continue...
