by in Recipes, Shows, February 26th, 2014

brats and cabbageFor this week’s Chopped Dinner Challenge, the chefs of Food Network Kitchen chose to feature the basket ingredient acai juice. The goal of this challenge was to use the juice of the antioxidant-packed South American berry to its full advantage, for its color and distinctive flavor. This recipe for Bratwursts with Sweet-and-Sour Cabbage uses the acai juice as the braising liquid instead of water or broth. By doing so, the juice not only lends a gorgeous purple hue, it also adds sweetness and earthiness that elevates this classic comfort food.

Worst Cooks Skill Drills: Ingredient Shmingredient

by in Shows, February 22nd, 2014

Anne Burrell and MichaelHave you ever shopped for a recipe and discovered that you forgot an ingredient or two once you got home? If it’s any consolation, it happens to the best. Or maybe you just can’t find an ingredient you thought you had for a recipe you planned to make. Your immediate reaction might be to come up with a substitution, but that’s not always the best idea. As Boot Camp recruits from Worst Cooks in America (Mondays at 9|8c) prove, some ingredients are not that easily exchangeable. Blue cheese for feta? Not really. Cilantro for parsley? It depends on the recipe (going for Mex-Ital?). Salt for sugar in a baked good? OK, it might have been an accident, but you can’t serve that!

If there’s one lesson to learn it’s this: You’ve got to know your ingredients and understand them. Watch the video to see some of the ingredient-swap sins committed in Seasons 3 and 4 — and you’ll know exactly when to point them out while watching the new season.
