  • Spices-That-Make-All-the-Difference

    May 14, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Scottsdale 0 Comments

    Whether dining at a friend’s house or a five-star restaurant, what makes a dish stand out more than anything is that little hint of spice. Often when a dish flops you will hear people say things like “it lacked taste,” or “it was bland.” Without the help of spices, even the most creative meals fall a bit flat. While there are more spices than you can even imagine, if you start with just these beginner ideas, they will make all the difference in many recipes and add extra flavor. Continue...

  • Cooking for One -Single Servings Ideas

    May 11, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Portland 0 Comments

    There are many quick and easy ways for someone to cook a great meal for themselves and not take forever or use a lot of pots and pans in the process. The culinary arts shouldn’t only be reserved for parties of two or more! If you have a night to yourself, be creative. Now is the opportunity to try out some of those recipes you have been holding on to. While Oregon culinary options are everywhere you look, going out to eat alone isn’t always as satisfying as cooking and enjoying a meal in the comfort of your own home.

  • Five Springtime Salads

    May 10, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Miami 0 Comments

    Now that winter has finally loosened its frigid grasp on most of the country, it’s time to celebrate with the brilliant, beautiful and colorful foods of spring. One of the best springtime foods is salad. While making dressings and cutting are the primary skills needed, salads are a wonderful culinary art in their own right. They give you the chance to show off your creativity by mixing unique springtime produce and making delicious homemade dressings. Thanks to its warm climate and long growing seasons, salads have always been a Florida culinary tradition. 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...

  • What’s a Juicy Lucy and Other Minneapolis Food Traditions

    May 10, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Minneapolis/St. Paul 0 Comments

    Many people do not put Minnesota and culinary arts in the same sentence. For most Americans, Minnesota is famous for two things: cold … and more cold. Despite its seemingly never-ending winters, Minnesota has a rich food heritage that comes from two centuries of immigrants from a variety of nations. Ethnicities in Minnesota’s rich cultural heritage include Germans, Scandinavians, British, Italians, and Slavs. More recent immigrants include Hmong Laotians and Somalis. Continue...

  • Its-Not-Really-What-you-Eat-But-How-Much

    May 9, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Las Vegas 0 Comments

    Diets and the dieting lifestyle are nothing new in the U.S. Since the big fad diets started in the 1970s, it seems that nearly everyone is on some type of diet. But here’s the thing: diets don’t work – not in the decadent Nevada culinary scene, not anywhere. Sure they’re good to take off 10 or 20 pounds before a high school reunion, but most dieters gain back all of the weight they lost plus a little more. Continue...

  • How to Make Refried Beans

    May 9, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Dallas 0 Comments

    Refried beans, or frijoles refritos, are almost as much of a staple in Mexican cuisine as tortillas. They are also an import part of Tex-Mex cuisine. Cooking refried beans in Texas has been a Dallas culinary tradition since before there was a Dallas. In Mexico these delicious mashed pinto beans usually serve as a main dish accompanied by smaller spicier dishes like pickled vegetables or salsa. Often the beans are rolled into a tortilla along with portions of the other dishes, much like a burrito or taco. Continue...

  • How to Make a Demi-Glace

    May 8, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Le Cordon Bleu 0 Comments

    In his classic book Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain says this about demi-glace: “Freeze this stuff in an ice-cube tray, pop out a cube or two as needed, and your are in business – you can rule the world.” With praise like that from culinary institute graduate and resident bad boy of the culinary world, demi-glace must be some powerful stuff. Take our word for it; it is. But what is it? Continue...

  • Fatty Acids: A Guide to Omega Oils

    May 8, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta 0 Comments

    By now we’ve all heard of the health benefits of omega oils, particularlyomega-3. Omega-3 oils, however, are only one part of the family of essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are defined as essential to human health, but the body can’t make them. That means that all of our fatty acids needs must come from our food sources. The good news is that you don’t need new cooking training to learn how to add essential fatty acids to your diet. Continue...

  • How to Throw a Mother’s Day Brunch

    May 7, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu San Francisco 0 Comments

    The perfect Mother’s Day Brunch consists of three basic elements: Good family, Good Food and Good Fun. Assuming you already have a good family (or you wouldn’t be considering a Mother’s Day Brunch) the only help you need is in organizing good food and fun. Even if you’re cooking skills could never compare to that of your mother’s, perhaps cooking for the family will inspire you to pursue your passion. You could begin looking at culinary schools in San Francisco! Culinary arts colleges are great for teaching you the basics whether you want to use them to explore a future in the culinary arts or for your own enjoyment. Continue...
