Hi Chefs, Foodies, Caterers and Students, I am a young Chef and Chopped-o-holic! I cant get enough of that show! I was watching the other night after dinner service, Lagunitas IPA in one hand and note pad in the other when i realized that these people aren't totally winging it, they are cooking recipes that they have done probably a 100 times and modifying the ingredients to match the secret ones. That was a super long sentence but damn it I'm a cook! Any Way, I'm curious to know what basic recipes or odd ball techniques other chefs hold near and dear. I looked all over the net and the only thing i could find was a cookbook. Any help would be appreciated! I got a few already: Creme Angles: Can be used as a sweet sauce and is also the bast for Ice Cream Sub Vanilla for other flavors. Basic white Cake or and chocolate cake batter Mother Sauces and their derivatives Pasta dough: Come on, Pasta is a must have recipe, enough said.
