I recently had one of those happy cooking accidents while trying to make dairy-free pancakes for an allergic niece who was a sleepover guest, and ended up w/ the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten. They are also super easy. Since I don’t plan on ever writing a cookbook, I thought I’d share the recipe w/ you folks.
1Preheat a large electric or double-burner griddle to med-low.
2Beat the eggs, oj conc., water and sugar in small bowl.
3Mix remaining dry ingredients together in larger bowl.
4Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and mix briefly. Some remaining lumps is fine. (Stir in raisins if desired.)
5Drop about 1/3 cup amounts of batter onto greased griddle. Leave until bubbles around the edges of the pancakes don’t fill back in (app. 2 min), then flip and cook about another 1-1/2 minute. Makes about twelve 5-inch diameter pancakes.
6Fan out cooked pancakes on a serving platter and sprinkle a little confectioner’s sugar on top. They are good w/ or w/o syrup.
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.
These colorful little sandwich cookies turn us all into kids in a candy store. They’re so perfect that the idea of making them is intimidating — but fear not! To learn how to make them, Guillermo met with master pâtissier Jayce Baudry, the executive pastry chef for Daniel Boulud's Épiceries. The chef taught us tricks and techniques to make the process manageable, even for an amateur baker at home.
Store-bought hummus is convenient but you haven't lived until you've made your own. For this episode of Chow-To, we visit chef Eden Grinshpan at her Middle Eastern-inspired restaurant DEZ in New York City to find out how to make hummus that is way better than the kind you'll find in a store. Guillermo and Eden make a traditional version, and then, to make things more interesting, they take it to the next level with Eden’s signature Beet Meze. This delicious vegan, gluten-free, protein-packed base is easier to make than most people think.
This incredibly rich beverage is anything but your nana’s hot cocoa. Incorporating tahini into this dairy-free hot chocolate adds a decadent layer of warming nuttiness that’s a perfect partner to the robust flavors of cocoa and vanilla.
