The idea that manufactured foods can be dangerous to our health is a common one Some of them, like trans fats, actually are Still, even naturally occurring ingredients like salt, sugar, fat, and caffeine come under fire on a regular basis Many of the concepts that we teach in our workshops have been around for a long time They were originally developed and tested extensively for the food service and food manufacturing industries, have proven themselves to work, and are now making the leap into restaurant and home kitchens The big change is in the quality of the ingredients used and the inspiration of the cooks using them Making cheese at home, for example, is not a new concept by any stretch of the imagination, but understanding how and why it works is This information frees us to explore what's possible in our kitchens Something as simple as adjusting the cooking temperature of a braise or flipping a steak as it cooks can make a huge difference in the final results Appreciating why we this and how it affects the meat allows us to improve our results A better grasp of the ingredients and what happens when we use them is pivotal Our job is to strip away the hype and fantasy and talk cold, hard facts We use the ingredients carrageenan, agar, and transglutaminase, for example, because they work They allow us to gently manipulate the textures of our food and make it a cut above the ordinary Rice bran oil is perfect for frying because it has a high smoke point and a clean neutral flavor Gone is the smell of traditional fryer oil Melting cheese slowly over low heat keeps it from breaking and gives far more pleasing results than melting cheese at high heat No-knead bread requires minimal effort but lots of time to achieve the desired results These are things we know to be true because we've tested them in our kitchen so you don't have to in yours The biggest barrier to using ingredients is unfamiliarity You have to use something in order to understand how it works We've spent hours and hours failing miserably with these ingredients That means we can show other people how to use them, and perhaps more importantly, we can explain what happens when these ingredients aren' t used properly We all know that you learn more from the things that go wrong in the kitchen than from successes Since we are intimately acquainted with most of the ways these ingredients and techniques can and will go wrong, we can help you figure out how things went awry and show you how to avoid the pitfalls in the first place So what is cooking? In our kitchen it's about great ingredients, well prepared to the best of our abilities The rest is philosophy, creativity, and individual expression With a handful of knowledge we exponentially increase our chances of enjoying a delicious meal We divided this book into two parts for ease of use We believe that anyone can use both sections, but the part for professionals utilizes ingredients and equipment that require a little more of an investment of time or money from the home cook We hope that everyone will read both sections and that we will inspire people to be a little more daring in their own kitchens IDEAS for EVERYONE This section is focused on ideas for everyone The ingredients are ones we all have in our kitchens and tend to take for granted Why make vinegar? Because we can make something delicious with unique and exceptional flavors that is not available in stores You could just let your leftover wine ferment on the counter But understanding the science behind the process and having a path to follow allows you to produce consistent results and create new interpretations, like maple vinegar Creativity requires a process We are sharing our discoveries about kitchen processes so that you can take them and create new things in your kitchen In this section we build a foundation by covering ingredients and techniques that will be familiar to almost everyone Many of the topicS were inspired by questions that people have asked us over the years Some are questions we've asked each other Asking questions helps us all become better cooks A great meal can be as simple as scrambled eggs but they should be the best darned scrambled eggs you can make We're going to tell you how to that and why our method works lamb, braising lambda carrageenan, 8.1 , 8.2 lardo, powdered leaveners and leavening, , 2.2, 1 See also baking soda;
