Juice — Off the Shelf

by in Books, July 25th, 2014

Juice - Off the Shelf CookbookThere are countless ways to enjoy summer produce, and FN Dish has touched on a lot of them in Off the Shelf (I’m looking at you, Corn and Zucchini Fritters and Peach Jam with Sriracha). One that we haven’t addressed yet is juicing, and that’s because until this week the right book hadn’t come along. Juice by Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores and Hayden Slater (founders of the Pressed Juicery) came out this week and it’s the book you’ve been waiting for if you’ve ever been curious about layering fresh juice into your weekly food routine.

The three entrepreneurs love their juice drinks, and their excitement for what they do shines through each page of the book. Never before has juicing looked more delectable; the flavor combinations they present are so tempting you almost feel like you’re getting away with something when you enjoy them. This book stands apart because it explains the technical side of juicing in simple, inviting language no matter how much or how little experience you have with the process. You can start at the beginning and build your juicing regimen from scratch, or hop in at the middle with Juice’s huge selection of bright, enticing flavor combinations and suggestions. The recipe sections are broken down into chapters on greens, roots and citrus, and each section contains a wide selection of recipes and flavor combinations for you to try. It also has chapters on nut milks, sweet sips, savory and spicy juices, smoothies, flavored waters and elixirs, and more.

Guy Reveals 8 Techniques to Survive Guy’s Grocery Games

by in Food Network Chef, Shows, July 25th, 2014

Guy Reveals 8 Techniques to Survive Guy's Grocery GamesGuy’s Grocery Games: the only show where chefs have the supermarket to themselves, have to cook in it and have the chance to win some serious dough. “During the first season of the show, when chefs walked in the door, you’d hear, ‘Well, now what do we do?’” Guy shared. “But since most have seen the show, they understand how it progresses,” he continued. But even though they think they know the game now, many still make the same mistakes. And the competition is only getting fiercer.

With that said, FN Dish asked Guy to share eight ways (from his point of view) to survive Guy’s Grocery Games:

1. Don’t over-portion.

2. Don’t add a frivolous garnish.

A 5-Minute Steak Defrost Hack? (and Other Meat-Thawing Tips)

by in News, July 24th, 2014

Grilled SteakIt’s the end of a long day and you’re craving a thick, juicy steak. Fortunately, you have a nice fresh cut in the freezer, awaiting its big moment. Unfortunately it’s frozen solid as a rock and dinnertime is in less than an hour. Time to surrender your steak dreams and start making pasta instead? Nope, not so fast.

CTi, a Taiwanese cable channel, suggests an electricity-free steak-defrosting hack that will safely thaw a frozen steak about 1 centimeter thick in less than five minutes. How? Take two metal pots or pans, turn one over bottom up and place your vacuum-sealed steak flat on it. Then fill the other pot or pan with water and place it, topside up, on top of the steak. The weight of the water and its temperature, conducted by the metal, will speed thawing. In five minutes, CTi says, your steak should be defrosted and ready to cook. (You can use the time to pick a recipe.)

by in In Season, Recipes, July 24th, 2014

Perfectly Grilled Corn on the Cob

Picture summer without nibbling on at least one ear of corn. How could you? This time of year, this staple crop is sweeter and juicier than ever. And, though it doesn’t need much else than a humble slathering of butter, the possibilities for the in-season ear don’t end there. Think of it as a kernelled canvas — one that can come drizzled, dusted or simply grilled to charred perfection with little effort at all. This week, take your pick of Food Network’s most-brazen corn-on-the-cob recipes and reinvent how your family devours corn on the cob.

In this summer heat, the most-fitting way to take your corn is by way of the grill. Bobby Flay’s Perfectly Grilled Corn on the Cob (pictured above) shows you how to do it once and for all. After giving the corn a good pre-soak, grill each ear with the husks on till the kernels are tender.
