 YOUR SHOPPING LIST 

For most cooking and baking, regular ingredients are fine. There are a few items worth splurging on however. These include quality baking chocolate, extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup, pure vanilla, bacon, and cheese. The difference in taste is remarkable. 

A COOK’S BEST FRIEND
When buying a knife, be sure that you are prepared to spend the money for a good one. Make sure the knife is at least 7 oz. The handle fits comfortably in your hand, and the weight is spread evenly. Your new knife is an extension of your hand and it should be comfortable as well as sharp.

ON CATERING

Sticker Shock

 

When considering hiring a caterer for an event, some people get “sticker shock” when they receive the quote. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for” and cost dictates the quality of the food as well as the level of service you should expect. Pick up a menu in any fine dining restaurant and calculate what you would typically pay per person for a full-course meal. Now add tax and gratuity. Conservatively, the final bill could easily exceed $200 for two people.   If you want to have that same fine dining experience in the comfort of your home or elsewhere, you shouldn't expect to pay less for it. Premium service often comes at a premium price and this is no exception. If you are just looking for the least expensive option for your event, don't be surprised when the service is not what you had hoped for. Take all of these factors into consideration and choose wisely.                  

MAKE IT FRESH

For delicious meals, buy the freshest in-season fruits and vegetables you can find. Often you can find the freshest produce at many farmers markets and vegetable stands. For exceptionally flavorful salads, slaws, frittatas, and desserts; fresh fruits and vegetables also demand the best finishing oils and vinager's.
