  • How to Braise Meats and Vegetables

    December 19, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Sacramento 0 Comments

    Le Cordon Bleu alumni will recognize braising as a wet cooking technique in which the main ingredient is seared in fat and then simmered in a cooking liquid on low heat in a covered pot. Cooking times are normally longer than two hours and result in moist and tender dishes with full, robust flavors. Braising is typically done in a Dutch oven, crock pot, or pressure cooker. Foods may be braised in an oven or on a stove top. Continue...

  • How To Make Beurre Blanc

    December 16, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Portland 0 Comments

    Many home cooks and beginning Oregon culinary school students wonder why their food doesn’t taste like the food prepared by professional chefs in professional kitchens. “It must be the training,” they say. “If I studied a prestigious culinary academy and worked my way up in New York kitchens, then I’d be that good, too.” Maybe so. They also say, “It’s the commercial equipment they use. I could never create food like that in this kitchen.” Also a possibility. Continue...

  • 3 Drinks to Heat Up Any Chilly Day

    December 15, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Miami 0 Comments

    When most people picture the holidays, hot chocolate and warm soup come to mind. While the idea is difficult for many not from the SunshineState to fathom, the holidays come and go each year in many parts of the country with no snow, no frost and no sub-zero temperatures, but that still doesn’t mean there isn’t that crisp winter feeling in the air. During the spring and summer months, the staples of Miami culinary typically revolve around keeping cool, however, when there is a bit of a chill in the air, no matter whether you are in sunny Florida or frosty New York, here are three drinks that will heat up your deepest winter chill.

There are several easy snacks and meal ideas to take with you this year when you hit the slopes.

  • Life-without-Wheat-A-Guide-to-Living-Gluten-Free

    December 14, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Las Vegas 0 Comments

    Grains of all varieties are a major source of calories for nearly all people around the world. There are some, however, who are not able to consume wheat grains without severe discomfort and illness. These people suffer from an autoimmune disease called Celiac. In Celiac sufferers, the small intestine is attacked by the immune system when wheat grains are present. It is caused by a reaction to prolamin, a gluten protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and other true cereal grains. Celiac is a genetic disorder and is not the same as having a wheat allergy.

  • Getting-Steamed-Tips-for-Cooking-with-Steam

    December 14, 2011 Le Cordon Bleu Dallas 0 Comments

    Steaming is one of the best ways to bring out the natural flavor in foods without adding additional salt and fat. Steaming is a wet cooking technique that uses steam to conduct heat through the food being cooked. It is a gentle form of cooking that keeps foods intact and enables it to retain more of its nutrients than any other type of cooking, making it perfect for delicate foods like vegetables and seafood. Steaming is also ideal for cooking with fresh herbs and spices to keep the flavors distinct and separate. Continue...
