One of the easiest ways to cook any type of fish is to simply simmer it in a flavourful liquid. And if that liquid just happens to taste like a classic cocktail, all the better! This dish tastes like a special occasion, but you can actually put it together in minutes.
The sunny flavours of the Mediterranean and the flavour of a live wood fire in my backyard make this one of my favourite ways to serve lamb. It’s a great excuse to fire up your grill any time of year. Both the marinade and the tapenade are wonderful with any type of meat or fish.
Today’s mainstream pork is very lean, so it can dry out very quickly as it cooks. The trick to tender pork chops that stay moist and juicy is a simple two-step cooking method. Begin cooking with high heat, then finish, covered, with low heat. And a savoury twist on classic applesauce won’t hurt either!
Because ham is so versatile, our Sunday ham tradition means a different flavour every week. Baked ham is easy to prepare, and easy to personalize with the flavour of your choice because it goes so well with so many ingredients, including the ten variations detailed here.
What’s the secret for your best-tasting, juiciest holiday turkey ever? Brining is a centuries-old trick that the pros use. Soaking the turkey in salt water is simple and it really works. Brining encourages the tightly wound proteins in the meat to uncoil, bump into each other and form a web of sorts that sets in the heat of the oven, trapping flavourful moisture. Don’t worry though, you don’t have to be a scientist to appreciate how tasty this turkey will be.
Usually when you’re cooking a whole chicken, the focus is on the crispy skin, but what if the goal is deeply flavoured moist chicken meat instead? Baking in a tightly covered pot is the answer. It also happens to be one of the simplest ways to cook a chicken, and the tastiest because this covered cooking method makes lots of true, concentrated chicken flavor.
A perfectly roasted chicken is the essence of home cooking, especially when the chicken and its fixings are raised responsibly on a nearby farm. In the fall my family really enjoys this aromatic dish. As the chicken roasts, the apples “melt” and form a tasty rustic pan stew that is perfect tossed with the roast chicken. This is a very easy way to cook and serve a chicken.
