Every home cook would like to put gorgeous chef style meals on the table that will delight the family, without actually spending hours slaving over a hot stove!
As a professional chef and certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, the motto of Taste of Healing is ‘Healing Never Tasted So Good’. I truly believe you don’t have to sacrifice taste to have amazing food to optimize your health.
One of my favorite movies is ‘Ratatouille’, the animated movie where the little rat chef Remy proclaims; ‘Anyone can cook’! I do believe this is absolutely true, …. with learning a couple of skills!
One of my most favorite parts of my business is cooking classes, empowering others with the skills and knowledge to put healthy meals on the table and seeing them flourish is such a joy.
Recently, I got to spend the afternoon in the beautiful kitchen of my friend Stephanie Stern Al-Zubaidy’s South Charlotte home. A busy working professional and mom, Stephanie’s gourmet palate is always looking for new way to bring fabulous meals to the table with minimal fuss.
It is quite possible to produce delicious, healthy chef style meals on the fly, by mastering a simple reduction pan sauce technique and opens a whole world of possibilities
With a pan seared protein, usually the meat of choice would be seared alone, or breaded, followed by the sauce made in the same pan. For this recipe, we did a ‘reverse breading’ technique, where the chicken cutlets are dipped in seasoned flour, and then in a herby egg wash.
Then comes the fun part; the pan sauce! Here we followed a ‘template’ to create a wonderful piquant tangerine and olive pan sauce.
The technique is outlined in the recipe, with options to inspire your unique spin, such as this delicious version with coconut lemon sauce.
