  • How to Make Garlic Confit

    April 20, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Le Cordon Bleu 0 Comments

    One of the advantages of attending schools of culinary arts is learning cooking techniques that can be applied to any style of cooking. One technique taught in culinary school is confit. Confit takes its name from the French word confire, meaning to preserve. Any similarities between the fruits and vegetables your grandmother puts up every autumn and garlic confit end right there. Traditional canning and preserving methods use vinegars and/or salts and sugars to preserve food. Continue...

  • How to Make Pimento Cheese

    April 19, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta 0 Comments

    Much of the time we spend writing about Southern cuisines either begins or ends with “It’s a Southern thing.” Even Atlanta cooking schools will teach you a lot about our peculiar culinary traditions. We’re very proud of Southern things. They are what make us who we are. So here’s another one: pimento cheese. So all of you who didn’t grow up in the South are asking, “What in the world is pimento cheese?” Continue...

  • A Food Cleanse for Those Who Love to Eat

    April 19, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Boston 0 Comments

    To read most cleansing diets, you would think that the authors have something against food. The Master Cleanse Diet has participants living off of a water, maple syrup, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper mixture. The Beauty Detox Solution consists of little more than green smoothies and hot water. Of course, these severe restrictions are the point of such diets, but as any Boston cooking schools grad can tell you, that is no way to eat. Continue...

    April 18, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu St. Louis 0 Comments

    Most of us like to think we are playing it safe in most of our everyday activities.

  • Tofu 101 – A Beginner’s Guide to Bean Curd

    April 17, 2012 Le Cordon Bleu Orlando 0 Comments

    Don’t ask why, but somehow tofu has gotten a bad reputation, one that is totally undeserved. Perhaps this stigma comes from the idea that tofu is “just not the same as meat,” or that many people haven’t the slightest clue how to try tofu for the first time. Like anything else, first impressions set the tone and if you haven’t had properly prepared tofu, you have gotten off on the wrong foot. Whether you are a meat eater or a newly turned vegetarian, chances are that tofu can find a place in your cooking regime. Just like when you cook meat, there are many different culinary techniques which can be used to prepare a tasty tofu delicacy. Here are the basics – consider this your intro to tofu culinary techniques, or tofu 101, the answer to all your bean curd quandaries. Continue...

  • 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...
