Each month Chef Andrea tackles one question, and answers in a collection of 15-20 minute “pods” to cover the details and spin off’s of culinary quandaries from home chefs. Chef Andrea loves to share techniques, thoughts, flavor profiles, cooking tips and more.
Each purchasable gumroad video collection comes with a printable collection of recipes for you to try at home as well. Once you subscribe, you own these videos and recipes, and can watch again and again. Submit any question for future Q&A with Chef A through our web page at www.achefs.com/contactus.
In this series, Chef Andrea goes through her personal cookbook collection and highlights a different cookbook. This week is on The Pat Conroy Cookbook. Enjoy!
What is the difference between salted and unsalted butter? If my recipe calls for room temperature butter, can I just melt it? What is Ghee? Are Ghee and Clarified Interchangeable? Can I use Vegan Butter or Butter substitutes in recipes? Chef Andrea takes on all of these questions and more in this great collection devoted to one of her favorite ingredients – butter!
Ok here we go! A big collection of great curry recipes to get you started. A few things to consider that I touch on in the pod casts:
1. If you don’t want to make your own curry powders, you can substitute any blend you purchase for the “whole seed” versions found in some of these recipes
2. If you decide to use store-bought curry blends, try toasting them in a dry pan for just about 60 seconds before using in the recipe to help brighten them up a bit!
3. Heat in a curry is totally up to you! Add fresh Jalapeño plus the seeds or Thai red chilis or just some cayenne pepper if you like. Have fun with the heat level but do know that “heat” and curry don’t have to go hand and hand, many of my favorite curries are very very mild.
New Smaller Class Size!
Two more classes available per week!
A Chef’s Cooking Studio is committed to offering our favorite classes with just a few changes based on all of our new concerns about large gatherings: We will now accept a maximum of 10 guests per class.
While our cancellation policy has never been focused on charging for illness, in these new times, we assure you that calling out the day of a class due to illness will not result in any fee.
Because we will be limiting our classes to such small numbers we do ask that you give ample notice of cancellations that are not illness related, allowing us the time we need to fill your space. Together we can make your cooking classes at A. Chef’s Cooking Studio as fun and educational (and delicious) as they have always been!
