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)

Bolognesa sauce

Elaboration: Bolognese sauce

This thick tomato and meat based sauce is the perfect friend of a number of pasta types: traditionally spaghetti or tagliatelle but not limited to these as it can also be used to make a nice lasagne or to stuff some delicious cannelloni. When it comes to preparing an awesome Bolognese sauce, patience is the key. Do not rush in any step, the wait will be worthwhile.

Steak Tartare

Steak tartare

A steak tartare has been an option on the menus of steak houses and French bistros for decades. The tenderness of top quality ground raw beef, the creaminess of a raw egg yolk and the flavour and crunchiness of carefully selected ingredients balance this equation perfectly. An authentic meat lover will appreciate this glorious dish very much.
