A Chef’s Secrets to Seared Meats, Pan Sauces & Risotto
Searing meat is 100% about building flavor. The meat hits the scorching hot pan and the surface instantly begins to caramelize. When this meat and that flavor that comes with it from the pan hits a stew or braise or roast, we’re talkin’ deep savory flavor (called Umami) that we crave on a cellular level… the one that makes us want to lick our plates.
You’ll learn how to do it from a consummate professional, Chef Richard McPeake. Together, we will learn a “pooling” sauce, a nappe Sauce and a Balsamic Butter Glaze as we test our skills and make Pork Marsala, Turkey Smitane, and Beef Tips with Balsamic Butter Glaze… and Bacon!
While we’re at it, Chef will also include a lesson on how to prepare the perfect Creamy Milanese Risotto. It’s easier than you think, and so good!
And then there are quick sauces you can make from that pan as well - these will make you wanna slap your granny! You heard me.
