Learn to season!
I can't emphasize this enough! This is the most important aspect in cooking and is the difference between the true professional and the amateur. A Chef's Salt is used for both great flavor and for better health!
Great Flavor! - This is one of the most important videos in the entire program, learn this, be consistent, and you will be amazed at everything you make!
For Good Health! - You will cut your sodium intake drastically!
Start by making ours, then change it to make your very own!
|Now experiment with other ingredients!
Special seasoning videos for " Kids" of all ages!
As we continue to grow, we've changed the style of this section to read more like a menu.
Below you'll find our Appetizers, Soup & Salads, Main Courses, Desserts and Extras (sauces & how-to.)
You'll also find a section for Equipment and Suppliers (where to get your ingredients.)
We think it makes it easier to find the recipe and demonstrations you want to see!
