Artisan Foods Made Easy

Lunghezza: 168 pagine1 ora


Cooking is both artistry and chemistry, I cook because I enjoy the process (the chemistry part of cooking) and the outcome (the artistry part of cooking) besides it is a great way to relax and wind down after a day at work. For thirteen years of my life I worked in restaurants as a cook, bartender, wait staff, etc. even if I had been in the kitchen all day at work I would still come home and cook for my family.
•A great way to have homemade pizzas with less work is to use the pre-prepared crust available in the grocery stores, from thin crust to artisan crust. Another option is to use bread; French bread loafs, Italian bread loafs, Focaccia bread, Pitas, flour tortillas, Lavash, Piadina alla Romagnola, Roti, and Sourdough loaf are some great replacements for a traditional pizza crust. Another great change is to use Pesto or Sundried Tomato pesto for the sauce (if you use these you will want to put the crust on a pan or tray for baking). No more than 15 minutes of prep time and 15 minutes of cook time and you have homemade pizzas with half the work.
•If you like Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato (BLT’s) sandwiches but hate the mess of cooking bacon, try the precooked bacon. It is already cooked, is ready to use right out of the package, and takes just a few moments to heat and crisp up. Oddly enough, you get just as much bacon as you would with the uncooked variety. Another tip if you want to use uncooked bacon, cook it in the oven on a baking tray. This usually takes 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees.
•Grilled cheese upgrade, try using sharp or extra sharp cheddar, provolone, Swiss, Bleu, or Feta; also use rye bread, sourdough, or sliced Italian bread in place of good old white bread. Another way to upgrade the staple sandwich is by adding bacon and/or tomatoes to the sandwich.
•Do meal planning. Plan your meals out for the week, this is also a great way to help budget and control your food expense, no losses due to spoilage.
•Precook pasta noodles, thoroughly cool and coat with a little olive oil. Precooked noodles will store refrigerated for up to five days and require a quick dip in boiling water to reheat.
