Cooking With Wine, Beurre Blanc

Kansas City was one of the largest meat processing city's in America. From 1871 to 1950 it was only surpassed by Chicago's Union Stock yards. Most of the labor at the yards was provided by African Americans and immigrant labor from nearby Kansas City Kansas. Kansas City style barbecue grew out of local laborers purchasing and taking home cheap cuts from the processing floor for weekend cookouts, church functions and neighborhood celebrations. As the locals refined their cooking skills more and more of the barbecue found its way into the marketplace. Barbecue joints sprang up all over the east side of Kansas City during the jazz era into the 40's and 50's.

Children love helping Mum or Dad in the kitchen. Teach them how to peel the potatoes or an apple. This will also help them with their fine motor skills. Try using some cutting items to cut it into shapes and make it fun. When it is cooked ask the child to check if it is cooked and even taste it. This will reduce the drama at meal time as they will have an advanced tasting session.

Once you know which wine you want to serve your guests, it's time to research recipes! Depending on which wine you've chosen will dictate which foods you can serve. For example, white wines go best with seafood dishes as the light wine flavours refreshingly enhance the citrusy fish flavours. Whereas red wines are a match made in heaven for hearty, lean meats. lamb slow cooker, casseroles and roast dinners are calling out for a warming, full bodied red to wash down with.

Many restaurants have one curry cooking process. They will often boil the meat in quantity and keep it frozen so that when they have an order for lamb curry they will take the meat from the freezer and put it in the pan, add the ingredients and cook for ten minutes till it is done. This is still a curry, and it will have the same taste at all times.

Make a large batch of your favorite Bechamel Sauce Recipe. I often do triple the usual quantity. Again, decant into freezer containers and mark. You now have the basis for a whole range of dishes, from your best baked macaroni cheese recipe to baked fish in a sauce. You can add simple ingredients to make a pasta sauce or you could add the Bechamel sauce to a Lasagna or Moussaka. But the key thing is, that part of the work has already been done, thereby making it completely viable to have a nutritious meal on the table in a relatively quick time.

Our server came over to curried lamb take our drinks order and we got chatting to him. We hadn't been in an Indian restaurant in the U.K. for 20 years so we wanted to go through the menu with him. He was very knowledgeable and made suggestions depending on how hot we liked our food.

About 23 miles from the heart of Wilmington and 14 miles from the Delaware state line, The Whip Tavern is well worth the drive. The restaurant is quite literally in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farms and rolling hills, which The Whip affectionately calls "horse country". There isn't even any cell phone service, but considering the atmosphere of the pub, you don't need to make a call because you're surrounded by 100 of your slow cooker lamb curry friends.

Place the wings over hot coals and grill for few minutes, turn over and grill for another few minutes; while they're cooking heat up some BBQ sauce. When cooked through put the wings on a serving plate pour over the sauce and serve. You're after wings which are cooked through and have a crispy skin but are not dried out or burnt.
