    November 18, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Seattle 0 Comments

    Each year, autumn is celebrated all over the world. For some it simply means crisp, cool nights, colorful leaves and the smell of pumpkin pie and apple cider throughout the town. In other parts of the world, the traditional time of harvesting is celebrated in other ways. This can mark the harvesting of crops to feed the family or mark the time of ancient religious or cultural beliefs.

However, if you feel like trying out some of your own culinary techniques this season, get inspired with these three traditional harvest-time recipes from around the world. Continue...

  • How To Make a Roux

    November 16, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Minneapolis/St. Paul 0 Comments

    No, not a roo or a rue, but a roux. “And what is that?” you ask. At its simplest, a roux is a mixture of equal parts flour and a liquid fat used to thicken sauces, soups and stews. Rouxs are a major part of French, Cajun, and Creole cuisines. In fact, a roux is used as the base for three of the four “mother sauces” of French cuisine: béchamel, espagnole, and velouté. And while it helps to have Le Cordon Bleu training to know that, you don’t have to have it to learn the proper methods for cooking in Minnesota. Continue...

    Okay, chances are if you walked into the kitchen and caught the chef bouncing a cranberry across the counter you might be asking yourself, “Okay, where exactly did this guy go to culinary school?” Believe it or not, tricks of the trade, like this one, are often a fast and easy way to tell that food is ready to eat …even if they seem a bit unconventional.

  • How to Make Maitre d’Hotel Butter

    November 15, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Miami 0 Comments

    It’s got a fancy French name, Beurre Maitre d’Hotel that can only be pronounced by Le Cordon Bleu graduates, but maitre d’hotel butter is an easy way to add a complex layer of flavors to some of your favorite meals. Maitre d’hotel butter is part of the family of compound butters often used in place of sauces or creams in French cooking.
