Chicken stock

Elaboration: Chicken stock

A chicken stock is one of these staples to keep always on hand in the kitchen. It is used as a basis in an endless list of different elaborations such as soups, creams, stews, sauces, rices... you name them. Make your recipes stand out and prepare your own chicken stock at home. It is a snap and the taste just plays in a different league than the stock cubes or prepared stock that you can get from the supermarket. All you need is some chicken bones and carcasses, a few vegetables and to leave it simmering for a couple of hours. It is a good idea to make stock in big quantities that you can store in the freezer, ready to be used when required.

Garlic chicken wings with mushrooms

Garlic chicken wings with mushrooms

This classic of the traditional Spanish cuisine has been one of my favourite dishes since I was very little. Chicken, rustic herbs and garlic, a lot of garlic! None of them could work without the other and they all contribute equally to obtaining a mind blower sauce. It is so good that I simply can't resist to dipping loads of bread in it (always thinking in making the life of my dishwasher easier, of course)

Garlic Mayo

Elaboration: Garlic Mayo

Garlic mayonnaise is a stable cold emulsion made of garlic, egg yolk and oil. It is sometimes confused with alioli, typical from Catalonia, although the later does not use egg. In as little as 10 minutes, you will prepare a delicious garlic mayo that has nothing to do with anything you can buy at the supermarket.
