- 20100915 - Great Taste - Escoffier

Auguste EscoffierAuguste Escoffier passed away in 1935, but his influence on food lives on.  His Le Guide Culinaire is still used as a textbook in many culinary schools where students learn the techniques and many of the recipes he popularized when he revamped French cooking in the early part of the 20th century.

Indian Hills' culinary program is based on learning French technique and two of the students, Ben Froah and Ben Millard, are going to pass on some of Escoffier's knowledge in our studio kitchen.  They'll walk us through cutting up a whole chicken (organic), and then teach us how to pan fry it, and make it look great, even though it is just fried chicken. 

The usual "come on by and taste for yourself," isn't flowing easily from the computer keys (believe it or not, I am a reluctant food sharer), but "COME ON BY."
