Culinary Magic

Sometimes cooking can be difficult, but not if you call on a professional chef to help you.  I got to work with Chef Ryan this week.  He came and taught me how to make chicken broth, chicken pot pies, and mushroom risotto!

We also made homemade butter and he taught me some french culinary words like:
 béchamel - which means a roux (a mother sauce) made of butter, flour, and milk
mise-en-place - which means everything in place; all your ingredients ready to go
mirepoix - a combination of carrots, onions and celery

It was really fun and everything tasted soooooo good!  If you want to contact Chef Ryan you can email him at  
He also does catering.
