Modernist Kitchen – Pressure Cooker Garlic Confit

To kick off my challenge of cooking through the Modernist Cuisine at Home and also trying my hand at producing a cooking video I’ve decided to keep it simple.  The writers of Modernist Cuisine at Home developed some really great uses for the pressure cooker.  They realized that it was a kitchen device far too underutilized with home cooks, and chose to dedicate a lot of space in the book discussing different uses and techniques for the pressure cooker.  Besides saving cooks time when braising tough cuts of meat, the pressure cooker can be used to speed up browning vegetables and developing intense flavors in stocks and purees.  In this case the chef authors are using the advantages of the pressure cooker to quickly produce an intensely flavored confit of garlic in a relative short period of time.  The garlic produced in this video is very rich in flavor and spreadably soft in texture, almost like a butter.  The olive oil has wonderful garlic flavor and aromas, and can be reused on such things as salads, finishing dishes or to cook things with in hot pans. Take a look at our video and let us know what you think, as our foray into the writings of the Modernist Cuisine at Home begins. Stay Hungry Y’all!

A Good Southern Story

Our passion is for the rich history and culture of the South and the wonderful flavors that are unique to our corner of the United States.  Our goal has always been to tell great stories about the people, businesses, food, and flavors of this region and to use whatever tools we have to make that possible.  We’ve experimented a lot with different formats, writing styles, video, audio and are continuing to try to find new ways to tell the story of people who make our Southern culture so unique.  We are very attached to our family recipes and talking to folks about the Southern flavors and cooking techniques that make up Southern cuisine, so we have decided to stick to what we do well and tell Southern stories about food.

If you haven’t seen our first two videos ( Local 3, Phickles Pickles) and our first podcast ( Southern Cheese) please take a moment and check these out.  We plan to bring you more of these amazing stories on a monthly basis.  You’re going to notice that our writing is going to slow down a little bit to free up some time to work on our “Stories”.  We’ll still bring you recipes from time to time, but  we’re going to try harder to tell you about the people and the places of the South that you all grew up with and are most passionate about.  The folks that remind you of your grandparents home cooking, or the restaurants whose flavors will live with you for a lifetime.

As part of this process we need your help in two ways: 1) we need your tips telling us about your local country stores, restaurants, chefs, shops, suppliers, etc anybody that you think might be a good fit for our stories; 2) tell your friends about what we are doing to tell these great Southern stories and  help us grow these businesses so they can succeed and continue to provide their wonderful Southern goodness for more to enjoy.  In the end it’s not about advertising, or numbers of readers on our website, or video views, but that we are building relationships with our farmers, chefs, Southern suppliers and local business owners and passing that on to you to do the same.  I hope you guys will help us make these Southerner’s Stories a success!

Stay Hungry Y’all!
