1Beat 8 egg yolks with 3/4 cup sugar until light. Meanwhile, scald 2 cups milk and 2 cups heavy cream.
2Beat a little of the hot cream mix into the yolks to temper them, then add rest of the cream to the yolks. Heat in a nonreactive pot until the mixture visibly thickens at about 165°F. Do not boil.
3Remove from the heat and whisk in 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ground mace, a pinch of ground cloves, 1/4 cup bourbon, and 1/4 cup dark rum. Serve in small punch cups and top with freshly grated nutmeg.
Margaritas are one of the classic summer cocktails. In this episode of The Easiest Way, the Chowhound Test Kitchen's Christine Gallary demonstrates our Classic 3-2-1 Margarita Recipe and gives a few tips for how to make a great margarita every time.
Former Chowhound associate food editor Aida Mollenkamp demonstrates how to achieve the perfect poach. Poached eggs can be kept refrigerated for a day or two; in the second segment, Aida shows how to reheat the cooled egg. Poached eggs are a lovely accent to many dishes—breakfast, lunch, or a light dinner. We like them in the almost-classic Salade Lyonnaisey and in this Roasted Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Miso Butter.
Cacio e pepe is a social media sensation. Everywhere you look, there are live-action pasta lifts of creamy, pepper-flecked, twirl-worthy mounds of this classic pasta dish. But this "new" foodie fodder is actually rooted in ancient Roman cuisine. To learn how to make this marvel from scratch, Guillermo travels to New York’s Seaport district to meet with world renowned chef Jordan Frosolone, and learn how he makes his “Best of NYC” (an honor bestowed by New York Magazine) dish. Chef Jordan is currently the executive chef at 10 Corso Como, an imported Italian restaurant/gallery concept that has become a celebrity darling since its opening last year. From its kitchen he shows Guillermo how to make pasta from scratch the traditional way, and how to successfully make this incredibly simple dish, that just requires precision and attention to detail.
