I made it a point to rest the béchamel for maybe 60 seconds and then only added about 1/4 C of cheese. I talked about tempering and the fact that cheese is milk solids and fat and it will separate if too hot. I added another 1/2 C and stirred until melted. I broke it down to adding the cheese to 4-5 portions. And patiently stirred until the sauce was creamy and smooth.

    EVERY kitchen knows better than me. All six groups dumped the cheese into the béchamel while it was still on the burner. All six groups had gritty, mealy cheese sauce.

    And after nobody raises their hands (or they do and you shoot them down) you say, "So...it's not the recipe that sucks but your inability to follow instructions that sucks...right?"

    Part of my now 20+ years of experience knows that it's because it's the Friday before a week long break. Our "ski week" is a much needed break. They're little brains are about to explode in anticipation.

After about five years of eggplant parm, fried eggplant, grilled eggplant, Japanese eggplant, and eggplant every which way I finally got her to admit that I don't like it and won't ever like it. Flavorless, mushy in texture, and somehow retaining twice the oil it is fried in, it's just not my food.

    I have had babaganoush, and while the flavor profile is OK (really, just OK, no more) it's still eggplant. So no.

    My mac and cheese recipe is basically Velveta and clean out the cheese drawer. Add some milk. Bake until a crust forms.

    My mother used to beat an egg into the milk so it formed a custard.

    I’m not romantic. And my husband is even less. So yeah, I guess we’re a good match.

    Before we got married he said, “Never expect anything and you’ll never be disappointed.” Yeah that sounds harsh but I totally got it and understood. I’m very pragmatic I suppose.
