Fire in the Hole
Flambe Day was a very exciting and delicious day. We got to light stuff on fire, cook in the dark and then eat it all over icecream! Crepes Suzette To begin, this is not my favorite dessert. However, it is a classic and the art of crepe making is a useful skill. Suzette sauce is the flambeed component of this dish. The sauce is a mixture of butter, brown sugar, orange juice and zest as...
Vietnamese Hot Pot
Because a Western-style fondue pot is too small for all the broth in a Vietnamese hot pot, we recommend using an electric skillet or electric wok that can be set in the center of the table and kept at a simmer. (Electric skillets can be found for under $20 at Target, and make a great “extra burner” whenever you’re cooking multiple stove top dishes for a crowd.) Ingredients...

Ice Cream Experimentation
This week started my final lab of the year, hot and cold desserts! So far we have learned the basics to icecream bases, both french and american. And to anyone who knows anything about icecream, they know french is best… French style, is made from a custard like base, consisting of egg yolks, cream, milk, sugar and flavorings. For the first day, we just made both American and French...

Chickpea Pasta Bowl
As a vegetarian, sometimes I become exhausted with what I usually buy: pasta, veggies, and beans. However, sometimes, I remember that mixing these items together creates a healthy, tasty dish that is deserving of seconds (or maybe thirds!) Ingredients (for one person) 1/3 box of penne (whole wheat or Ronzoni Smart Taste for the healthiest of dishes) 1/2 can of chickpeas (high in protein and...

The end of cookie cookin'
So, cookies & petit fours finally came to an end Thursday and i was sort of happy to see it go. For our practical we had two days to complete it. My group was assigned to do our petit fours the first day (the day AFTER we had just done them) and they didn’t go so well… the room was exceptionally cold and the vent was blowing right on my work. Then the fondant was too thin and...

Petit Four Hell.
Petit Four? what the heck is that? To the average home baker…they mean nothing. But for pastry students at JWU they mean torture absolute unnecessary torture. To me, i would NEVER purchase or willingly consume a petit four (such as these) again. I have yet to see them in a bakery either. They seem outdated and yet we are required to make them (very inefficiently, I might add) in the...
