Sprinkle with half the flour and transfer to a board or clean counter. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead gently, adding the rest of the flour only as needed to develop a dough that is supple but not sticky. (process should take about 5-7 minutes). Divide dough into quarters and roll each into long strands gently with hands about 1 “ thick.

Subscribe for more: goo.gl/wNqDQB RECIPE - Reverse Sear T-Bone: (1.75 Kg )- 4 lbs T-bone steak 1 Tbsp. olive oil (15 ml) kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste For best results use best quality, dry aged beef from a good butcher. Remove from any paper and store in fridge for 24 hours to dry outer surface of meat. Remove steak from fridge at least 1 hour before you heat up your grill. Brush steak with olive oil and season on all sides with salt and pepper 30 minutes - 1 hour before grilling. Heat bbq or grill to high and clean thoroughly. Reduce to low heat ( 275-300 D F) . Turn burners below where you'll grill meat to off. Cook is low , slow and steady , on indirect heat and turn it over a couple of times in the process. A meat thermometer is essential to properly cook this meat. After roughly 40 min for a 3" piece, thermometer should read about 110 D F in the middle of meat. Turn back on burners directly to high and return meat to hot direct heat. This creates the crust and increases the flavour on outside of beef. We are not getting perfect grill marks for this grilling method. You want to turn it often at the end but only grill it for about 2-3 minutes. At the end turn steak so it's standing on the bone over high heat, for about 4-5 minutes. Remove and let rest for 7-10 minutes and slice.

Subscribe for more: goo.gl/wNqDQB APPLE PIE RECIPE Pastry 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour (425 ml) 1/3 cup cake and pastry flour (80 ml) 1/4 tsp. salt (1 ml) 3/4 cup cold butter (175 ml) 1/2 cup ice water (125 ml) 1 egg, lightly beaten, for brushing Filling 4 large Mutsu apples, peeled, cored, or other very firm apple 1/3 cup sugar (75 ml) Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 tbsp. cornstarch (15 ml) 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (3 ml) Combine dry pastry ingredients in a medium bowl. Slice butter finely with a sharp knife. Combine butter with dry ingredients and toss with 2 forks. Add the ice water and toss again with a wooden spoon. Do not touch with hands. Turn mixture onto lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin and a pastry scraper or spatula to gently bring the dough together. Roll the dough with a rolling pin and fold over the outer edges with a scraper back onto the dough. Continue to roll and scrape the dough, folding it over creating layers until butter is evenly incorporated. Work quickly so butter does not get soft. Divide dough in half. Using the rolling pin, flatten into 2 discs. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes. Filling For apple filling, slice the apple quarters crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices and combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss together. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll pastry dough out on a lightly floured surface into 2 circles. One circle should measure 10-inches in diameter and the other circle should measure 11-inches in diameter. Transfer the large circle to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with beaten egg. Mound the filling onto the middle of circle of pastry dough. Discard the liquid in bottom of bowl. Cover with remaining circle of pastry dough. Pinch the edges together to secure the top and bottom layers tightly together. Fold overhanging edge of dough by tucking it inwards as you work around circle. Press down around edges so no gaps appear. Brush the top of the pastry with beaten egg and sprinkle very lightly with sugar. Make a 1/2-inch hole in the centre of the top of the pastry. Then make a few holes all around the top of the pastry. The holes will allow for steam to escape. Bake at 375 degrees F. on the lower rack of the oven for about 45 to 50 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden. While baking, if the pastry gets too dark and the filling is not bubbly or very hot, reduce the heat to 350 degrees F for the final 15 minutes of baking.

Subscribe for more: goo.gl/wNqDQB RECIPE Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches 1/2 cup butter at room temperature (110 gm ) ¼ cup sugar (50 gm) ¼ cup coconut or brown sugar (45 gm) 2 egg yolks 1/2 tsp. vanilla (2.5 ml) 1 cup all purpose flour (140 gm) 1/2 cup cocoa powder ½ tsp . salt (2.5 ml) 2 lbs or 1 Kg good quality ice cream Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Before you start ensure the following: If you want to use ice cream from a small tub , find a loaf pan and figure out the dimensions that your rectangular ice cream slab needs to be. See video for details. I used a pan -7 ½ x 4 “ (for 3cookies each 2.5 x 4 rectangles ) Remove ice cream from freezer and store in fridge for an hour or until soft enough to scoop and mould , but not melting. Line your desired pan with parchment paper and scoop ice cream into mould. With spatula smooth out an even 1 “ layer. Cover with parchment and refreeze for 1-2 hours until firm. Alternately, just use an ice cream slab and slice the desired size from frozen. For Cookies: In a bowl, beat together butter and both sugars, until light and fluffy. Scrape down sides. Add egg yolks and vanilla and beat until fully blended. Sift together flour, cocoa. Stir in salt . Add to butter mixture. Beat on low speed until mixture just comes together. Transfer dough to counter top and gather up and knead very gently until smooth. Roll gently into log shape. Roll onto parchment paper until 1/8 "- 3 mm thick , without flour. Cut another piece of parchment into 7.5 “ x 8 “rectangle and lay over top of dough. ( this will give you 6 cookies each 2.5 x 4' ) With knife or pasta cutter, cut the dough to size of top sheet. Gather up the scraps into a ball. Peel off top piece of paper and cut dough into 6 - 2 ½ x 4 inch rectangles. Reserve this paper to trace ice cream later. Do not pull cookies apart. Slide paper with dough onto a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough. With a fork ,pierce holes in cookies. Bake in 350 D still oven in middle rack for about 10-11 minutes, until just beginning to set but not crisp. Remove and let cool completely. Can be made in advance and stored in a sealed container. Working with 3 cookies bottoms baked side up, lay the slice of ice cream on top of cookies and top with 3 more cookies, with nice side out. Press down gently .Cut through the ice cream , to match the shape of cookies below. You can now gently pull cookies apart. Press gently to secure each sandwich and quickly freeze them, for at least 2 hrs on a tray to set. Wrap in parchment paper.

Eggs Benedict are a favourite on any brunch menu and I show you all the tips and tricks on how to master them at home. From how to poach the perfect egg , to making hollandaise from scratch and using the 'Real' Canadian Bacon. We call it back bacon.

Subscribe for more: goo.gl/wNqDQB RECIPE 4 cups water (1 Litre) 1 tbsp. white vinegar (15 ml) 4 large eggs Hollandaise sauce 1/3 cup , clarified melted butter (80 ml) 2 yolks 1 Tbsp water (15 ml) Salt and pepper to taste Grated zest and Juice of ½ lemon or to taste 4 slices Back bacon- Canadian Bacon 2 English muffins , toasted Salad , orange wedges, optional Cracked black pepper and paprika to taste Preheat oven to 350 D. NOTE : If making more than 6 eggs, poach the eggs first and just before serving , immerse them again into hot water to warm slightly. Fry the back bacon in a medium skillet over high heat for 3/ minutes per side ( if you want some crispy edges). Alternatively place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in oven for about 10 minutes, until fully cooked. Keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the hollandaise sauce. In a stainless steel bowl over a small pot of just simmering water whisk together the egg yolks and water until fluffy and lemon yellow coloured, about 3-4 minutes. In a gentle stream while whisking vigorously, pour in the melted clarified butter until mixture is thick and you can see a ribbon trail. Turn heat off and whisk in lemon juice and zest and season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm over the hot water , off the heat. Best way to keep warm for longer than 20 minutes is in a hot thermos. Fill a medium saucepan with 3 inches water and stir in vinegar (to help whites coagulate faster). Bring water to a boil over medium low heat with water at a gentle simmer. Break each egg in separate small bowls to help pour them into water for poaching. Using a wooden spoon or whisk, gently swirl the water in a circular motion and pour one egg in at a time. Poach eggs at a bare simmer 3 minutes for medium cooked eggs, or until whites are firm but yolks are still runny. Transfer eggs as cooked with a slotted spoon to kitchen towel or paper towel to drain and season with salt and pepper. To assemble, cut open biscuits horizontally and place a slice of bacon on each half. Place a warm poached egg on top and spoon over the warm hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with paprika to taste. Serve with salad and orange wedges, if desired.

Add the beef and cook for 20-22 minutes or until meat is well browned. Make a well in centre of meat and add the onion and sweat until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes.. Add the garlic and stir to blend. Deglaze the pan with the red wine and add the herbs, spices and tomatoes and paste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 40 to 45 minutes or until sauce is thickened.

Drain pasta, and toss it with the reserved meat sauce in a large bowl. Drizzle with other half of olive oil. When pasta has cooled slightly, whisk the 2 egg whites and toss into past along with a handful of the grated cheese. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large heavy-bottomed pot on medium heat. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Remove pot from heat and add cold milk in very small batches whisking each time until smooth.

My way of making New York style cheesecake, is lighter, yet still has all the traditional, cream cheese and sour cream that makes it so creamy and delicious. I also give you a choice of crust , either chocolate or graham cracker crumbs. My secret to the perfect cheesecake texture is to separate the eggs, giving it a lighter texture throughout. The sour and bing cherry topping is literally the cherry on top.

All topped with freshly grated Parmigiano for a golden crust. See why this lasagna changed my life!

Subscribe for more: goo.gl/wNqDQB RECIPE This lasagna is the perfect balance of cream, cheese and meat. You’ll need a pasta machine to make the pasta. It’s a fairly involved recipe but the end result makes it all worthwhile. I think you’ll agree. Bolognese Sauce 3 tbsp. olive oil (45 ml) 2 onions, finely chopped 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (675 grams) 1 small fresh Italian sausage, casing removed, optional 2 cloves garlic, chopped 2 small carrots, finely diced Celery , finely diced Several sprigs fresh thyme 2 bay leaves 1 tsp. dried oregano (5 ml) One 28-ounce can plum tomatoes with juice, chopped (784 grams) 1/3 cup White wine (80 ml) Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper 1 bunch fresh basil, washed, stemmed and chopped Pasta 1 3/4 cups 00 flour or all purpose (425 ml) 2 whole eggs 2 yolks Béchamel sauce ¼ cup butter (60 gm ) ¼ cup cup flour (60 gm ) 4 cups milk (1 l) Pinch freshly grated nutmeg sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper ½ cup grated Parmigiano cheese (60ml), divided Oil, for baking dish Directions To make sauce Make the meat sauce by, heating the olive oil on medium in a large skillet. Add the beef and Italian sausage and cook for 7-10 minutes or until thoroughly browned. Add the onions, celery , carrots and garlic and sweat for 3 minutes just to soften. Deglaze with white wine. Add the thyme sprigs, bay leaves, oregano, tomatoes and salt and pepper and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 55 to 60 minutes or until sauce is thickened and flavour has developed to your liking. Adjust seasoning and thickness of sauce with some water if too dry. To make pasta In a food processor with dough blade to the flour, add the eggs and yolks pulse several times until dough forms a ball. Remove dough from bowl and knead to form a ball. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes in fridge. Roll out pasta. Cut dough into 12 pieces. Roll dough into thick sheets on the pasta machine, starting at the thickest setting, reducing pasta setting one mark each time you roll the dough through. You should end up with strips that are no more than 1/16 “ thick. Cut into thirds. Cook pasta in boiling salted water for about 1minute or until just until water comes back to a rapid boil. . Immediately lay out on a well oil baking sheet to prevent them from sticking. Repeat with remaining pasta. Alternatively, plunge pasta into cold water to stop cooking and then oil to prevent from sticking. To make Béchamel Sauce In a medium saucepan on medium heat, melt butter. Add the flour and stir with wooden spoon until a paste forms. Remove from heat and add the cold milk a little at a time while stirring well between each addition. Return to heat once all the milk is added and mixture is smooth. Continue stirring over medium heat until sauce comes to a boil and thickens, about 5 minutes. Add a pinch of nutmeg and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the Parmigiano cheese and stir. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Oil the bottom of a 13x 10x2 1/2-inch baking dish. Reserve a quarter of the béchamel sauce for the top layer. Layer lasagna as desired starting with pasta and alternating bolognese sauce, grated cheese and béchamel. Season well between each layer. Finish with a layer of pasta, the reserved béchamel sauce and extra cheese on the top layer to finish (you should have 6 layers of lasagna). Bake lasagna in middle of oven for about 35 to 40 minutes or until golden.

How To Make Best Hot Chocolate | Christine Cushing

To make the perfect homemade hot chocolate, I start with bittersweet, single origin chocolate mixed with some organic milk into a ganache and then topped with steamed milk. For an added burst of flavour I add some chilies, ginger and cloves and use a cinnamon stick for garnish. For that smores memory, I add mini marshmallows and flame just before serving.

There will be enough cheese mixture for 4 portions . 140 gm pasta spaghetti - 11 min cooking time 1 lt water 4 cups ½ tsp. salt 3 gm whole Telicherry ( or other flavourful)pepper corns, toasted and ground Cheese cream: 80 gm pecorino cheese, preferably young 50 gm parmigiano 60 gm lukewarm water Break cheese into small pieces. Add to a small blender or food processor and run until just crumbled and beginning to come together. With machine running slowly pour in lukewarm water and work until creamy. Remove from machine and set aside while preparing pasta Use a 10 ½ “ ( 26 cm) pot Bring water to a rapid boil with ½ tsp. salt added. Add the pasta and gently press down without breaking to ensure that it is all eventually submerged. This might take 1 minute so don’t rush it. Meanwhile, toast peppercorns and grind in mortar and pestle In a medium skillet use 4 Tbsp. cheese mixture and add half of the ground peppercorns. Reserve remaining cheese mixture covered in fridge for another time. When pasta is almost cooked -1 minute less than package instructions- immediately use tongs to transfer into skillet with cheese. Add some of the starchy pasta cooking water and stir the mixture over medium heat for 1 minute until glossy and moisture has evaporated. Serve immediately.

I show you why dry brining your turkey is the ideal technique to maximize flavour and juiciness in your holiday bird while minimizing the fuss. After 24 hours in the fridge I use Spanish flavours, like paprika, sherry, fresh rosemary, thyme and clementines and how to perfectly roast. Lastly I show you how to carve your bird . Do not rinse the turkey before roasting or the skin will not crisp during roasting. Kosher salt is the only variety that will brine the bird properly.

For additional flavour to pan drippings, roast neck and giblets and vegetable, in pan under turkey. Ensure that you have the bottom shelf of fridge available that fits your turkey overnight. Combine the kosher salt and ground pepper together and blend. With bird in roasting pan, preferably on a rack, sprinkle inside of turkey cavity with 2 tsp. of mixture. Sprinkle another 2 teaspoons over legs and wings, making sure to sprinkle from a height to ensure light dusting. Lastly sprinkle the remainder of salt mixture evenly over breast area with a light dusting. Transfer to fridge and let brine uncovered for 24 hours-28 hours. Preheat oven to 325 D F. The following day, remove turkey from fridge. DO NOT rinse or skin will not crisp up. Stuff cavity with several sprigs of fresh herbs and 2 cloves garlic.

At the midway mark if pan is dry add a cup of water to prevent scorching. Note that time can vary. Remove and let rest for 40 minutes- 1hour before carving. Pan gravy Remove the turkey onto a cutting board and let rest. While turkey is resting, add more water to the pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, if your roaster can be heated on the stove top, .

Meanwhile, make the sauce by heating ghee in deep pot, over medium heat. When pan is hot add shallot and sauté until soft and golden, about 5 minutes. Add chile, garlic, ginger, garam masala and paprika, cook until fragrant, stirring often, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add tomato paste, pureed tomatoes, coconut milk and almond butter. Bring to a boil and then let simmer, about 20 to 25 minutes. Mixture should be reduced by half and thick. Add roasted chicken pieces to the sauce and continue to cook for about 6-8 minutes, just to absorb sauce. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Sprinkle with fresh coriander before serving. Serve with Naan bread warmed in the oven and basmati rice.

I show you how to perfect Greek pita bread - the soft, tender flatbread that you cook in a skillet. I start by making the perfect dough , kneading, shaping and rolling it into thin rounds. The additional of yogourt and olive oil to the dough gives you a softer pita that is perfect for dipping, or wrapping around grilled souvlaki or vegetables.

Stir in the wheat flour and ½ cup white flour until batter begins to form. Cover and let batter stand in warm place until it doubles in size, about 30-45 minutes. Sprinkle the batter with the salt and then the oil. Sprinkle about ½ cup of the remaining flour. Turn onto well-floured surface. Knead the mixture into a dough, adding more flour as the dough becomes too sticky to work. Continue kneading until dough is elastic but still a little sticky, about 6 to 8 minutes. Depending on the humidity, the amount of flour added to the dough will vary. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover. Let dough rest until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch down the dough. Divide into 4 equal pieces. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a circle, about ¼-inch thick. Brush off excess flour .

The Best Mashed Potatoes In The World - Inspired by Joel Robuchon
The Best Mashed Potatoes In The World - Inspired by Joel Robuchon
Year ago
This ultimate mashed potato recipe, puree de pomme, is inspired by Joel Robuchon, the most awarded Michelin star chef in the world, who was tilted "Chef of the Century". I show you exactly how to create these perfectly silky, unbelievably buttery mashed potatoes, that once you've tried you will crave and never forget them. In France he uses ' la ratte' potato variety that has a unique nutty flavour and smooth buttery texture. I'm using an organic Yukon gold variety and adapted the recipe to come a close as possible. Caution: high addiction factor. New Videos Every Week!

Pass through food mill into a medium pot. Over low heat, while potatoes are steaming, add butter in batches and stir with wooden spoon. Add the desired amount of milk and whisk until smooth. Note in France they add more milk and make them runny and before serving pass them through a fine sieve for that ultra fine texture.

Subscribe for more: goo.gl/wNqDQB RECIPE It seems as if I’ve spent years trying to make the perfect cinnamon bun. My buns are soft and tender in the middle but not too sweet. The potato makes the dough tender, but it’s a little unpredictable: how much moisture the potato contains will dictate how much flour you need. I suggest you keep adding flour until the dough is satiny and smooth. I bake the potato instead of boiling it because it absorbs way too much water when it’s boiled. 6 oz. Cooked Yukon Gold or baking potato (180 g) , 2 medium 1/4 cup sugar (50 ml) 3 tbsp. + 2 tbsp melted butter (45 ml + 25 ml) 1.5 tsp. instant yeast (7.5 ml) 1/2 cup warm milk (125 ml) 1 egg, beaten 1 tsp. vanilla (5 ml) 3/4 tsp. salt (4 ml) 2 ¼ cups unbleached bread flour (550 ml) + more for kneading 1/3 cup dark brown sugar (75 ml) 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (125 ml) 2 tsp. cinnamon (10 ml) Glaze ¼ cup water (50 ml) 1/2 cup icing sugar (125 ml) 1/4 cup maple syrup (60 ml) 1 tsp glucose or corn syrup - to prevent crystallizing , optional ½ tsp. cinnamon (2 ml) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Or use a microwave to bake potato. Do not Boil. Poke holes all over potato and bake until tender, about 50 minutes. Peel immediately and mash with ricer or fine food mill. Spread out on a plate to cool and set aside. Meanwhile, combine the sugar, 3 Tbsp. melted butter, milk, egg, vanilla and salt a medium bowl and whisk to blend. Transfer to bowl in stand mixer with dough hook. Add the mashed, cooled potatoes and work on low speak until blended. Stir together 2 cups of flour with instant yeast and add to wet ingredients. Work on medium low speed until mixture starts to pull away from the sides, about 3-4 minutes. Turn onto lightly floured surface and knead with the remaining ¼ cup flour for about 5-7 minutes, adding more flour as needed. You may need to add up to a ¼ cup more flour if dough is too sticky. Transfer dough to a large oiled bowl. Cover and let sit in warm place until doubled, about 90 minutes. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, chopped pecans and cinnamon. Stir until well blended. Punch down dough. On a lightly floured board, roll dough out into 10 1/2- by 15-inch (26 cm by 38 cm) rectangle. Turn rectangle so the long side is horizontally in from of you. Brush dough with remaining 2 tbsp. (25 ml) melted butter. Sprinkle sugar pecan mixture evenly over dough. Roll dough tightly away from you like a jelly roll. Line a an 11x8 “ baking dish with parchment paper. Cut roll with a serrated knife into 12 equal slices about 1 1/4 inches (3cm) thick. Transfer to dish, leaving about 1/2 inch (1cm) between buns. Cover loosely with tea towel and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 24 to 26 minutes, or until buns are golden on top and bottoms are browned. Let cool in the pan, slightly. To make the glaze, in a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar and bring to a boil until sugar is completely dissolved. Add maple syrup and cinnamon and the glucose or corn syrup if adding. Continue to simmer on low heat but just swirling pan and not stirring. This helps to prevent the maple syrup from crystallizing. Let cool slightly. Brush cooled buns with warm glaze.

Slice butter finely with a sharp knife. Combine butter with dry ingredients and toss with 2 forks. Add the ice water and toss again with a wooden spoon. Do not touch with hands. Turn mixture onto lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin and a pastry scraper or spatula to gently bring the dough together. Roll the dough with a rolling pin and fold over the outer edges with a scraper back onto the dough. Continue to roll and scrape the dough, folding it over creating layers until butter is evenly incorporated. Work quickly so butter does not get soft. Divide dough in half. Using the rolling pin, flatten into 2 discs. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes. Filling For apple filling, slice the apple quarters crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices and combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss together. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll pastry dough out on a lightly floured surface into 2 circles. One circle should measure 10-inches in diameter and the other circle should measure 11-inches in diameter. Transfer the large circle to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with beaten egg. Mound the filling onto the middle of circle of pastry dough. Discard the liquid in bottom of bowl. Cover with remaining circle of pastry dough. Pinch the edges together to secure the top and bottom layers tightly together. Fold overhanging edge of dough by tucking it inwards as you work around circle. Press down around edges so no gaps appear. Brush the top of the pastry with beaten egg and sprinkle very lightly with sugar. Make a 1/2-inch hole in the centre of the top of the pastry. Then make a few holes all around the top of the pastry. The holes will allow for steam to escape. Bake at 375 degrees F. on the lower rack of the oven for about 45 to 50 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden. While baking, if the pastry gets too dark and the filling is not bubbly or very hot, reduce the heat to 350 degrees F for the final 15 minutes of baking.

I'm very happy to announce that in the past few months, I've been working with Health Canada on their Eat Well campaign. Our goal is to help Canadian families learn about healthy eating and the importance of meal planning. We've created a series of 6 videos on meal planning for different times of the year (back-to-school, the holidays, etc). This first one has tips and tricks on how to prepare for quick and healthy summer picnics and road trips. You can eat well and still have fun, so go out and savour the summer! New Videos Every Week!

How To Make Easy Apple Strudel | Christine Cushing
How To Make Easy Apple Strudel | Christine Cushing
7 years ago
Watch my easy way to make an apple strudel that your family and friends will love. The secret to a great strudel is to absorb the fruit juices that ooze out into your pastry and ovoid making it soggy. Here I add a bit of corn starch and make sure I use a firm cooking apple which keeps it’s shape during the baking process. I also slice my apples super thinly. Subscribe for more video recipes: goo.gl/wNqDQB RECIPE 4 medium Spy or other firm apples, cored, quartered and thinly sliced 3 Tbsp. sugar 1 Tbsp. lemon juice 2 Tbsp. corn starch 1 Tbsp. Metaxa brandy or other 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/8 tsp.ground cloves 8 sheets phyllo pastry 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted Icing sugar Preheat oven to 350 D. For filling, combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss together. Brush each sheet of phyllo with butter and place them one on top of the other. Turn phyllo so the long edge is horizontal and spread filling in a log shape along bottom edge of phyllo. Fold edges on each side in covering filling about 1 “ and roll strudel like a jelly roll away from you. Transfer to a baking sheet , lined with parchment paper, placing seam down. Poke several small holes along top of phyllo to allow steam to escape and bake in middle rack of oven , at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes or until golden brown . Serves 8 Final Plate: serve a slice on a small dessert plate, dusted with icing sugar and a quenelle of vanilla ice cream.

I show you many little tips and tricks to make Lyonnaise potatoes- from the culinary capital of France- first by gently simmering them and then finishing them in a pan for the perfect flavour and texture. I also show you the best way to caramelize the onions. This is the original method that ensures the potatoes are not soggy and they are combined perfectly with caramelized onions and sprinkled with fresh parsley. This dish is an absolute winner ! Subscribe for more video recipes: goo.gl/wNqDQB RECIPE 2 lb large white potatoes , waxy variety Sea salt 1 large white onion, thinly sliced 2 Tbsp. olive oil 2 Tbsp. butter Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper Large handful fresh chopped Italian parsley Wash and scrub potatoes thoroughly. Place in a medium pot and cover with water and sea salt. Bring to a boil and completely lower temperature until potatoes are barely simmering. Cook for about twenty minutes, until potatoes are almost tender but still firm. Drain and cool slightly. Peel and slice into rounds ¼ ‘ thick. In a large skillet heat half the oil and half the butter over medium setting. Add the potatoes and sauté until golden, about 10- 15 minutes, turning often to evenly cook. Meanwhile, in a small skillet combine the remaining oil and butter and sweat the sliced onion on low heat , until very soft and golden, about 10 minutes. Stir often for even browning. When potatoes and golden, add the onions to the potatoes and continue to cook for a couple of minutes , just to develop flavour. Season with salt and pepper and toss in parsley.

How about a tip to make an only 6 month old NON-STICK frying pan...NOT stick? It’s not a cheap one from a Poundshop. It’s a ‘Green Pan’ make, about £30, but don’t know if you have that brand in America I presume you’re in? It makes me so mad. Bacon sticks, beef burgers stick, onions burn even tho I’m ‘sweating’ them on low heat number 3-4 with 7 being the hottest on my halogen hob. Any tips for that? I have to soak it with Fairy Liquid/hot water, for a good 2 hours. Cannot of course use ANYTHING like a Brillo Pad, or it would scratch all the Teflon I presume it is, off.

The fact that you put olive oil in the pan had nothing to do with the egg not sticking? I use a similar pan for frying foods that typically “stick” and I’ve never put onions before...it’s always been the oil to help prevent food from sticking...

Another way is....bring ur pan to high heat without adding oil(very hot) after the pan is really hot, put lots of oil in the pan, make sure the oil covers most of the area of the pan, pour out the oil in a dry bowl or any container , leaving one hot thin layer of oil in the pan! Quickly add new oil to ur pan, not too much this time! This way u will have 2 different layers of oil coating in ur pan! Now u can cook without sticking!

Perhaps you should soak first so water is not wasted trying to loosen it.

Food looks good; but you need to fix your audio. Your voice only comes out of one speaker (the right).

This looks fantastic! Thanks I needed a recipe for my cans of chick peas that I had and not a clue how to use them. I will assume the cooking time is less due to the canned beans.
