Cooking is more than the preparation of food. Cooking is a passion, a celebration of taste, the study of how ingredients come together to ignite the senses. Cooking is the mastery of techniques, the art of integrating the sciences, and a reinvention of cuisine. Join us to celebrate the ingredients that allow us to create brilliant dishes to delight and inspire.
"The Study Of" culinary series features an in-depth exploration of ingredients with the chefs of the Destination Culinary Collection. Each quarter, we'll unveil a new gastronomic topic for our chefs to examine through cooking demonstrations, educational lectures, innovative recipes or sumptuous tastings.
Braising: Keeping it Seasonal
In this segment of the Study Of... series; we opted to focus not on a specific ingredient, but the age old cooking technique of braising. The Study Of Braising is best demonstrated during the fall and winter months as, it evokes feelings of comfort and warmth that mesh with the holiday seasons. It is also a technique that has applications across all culinary disciplines, many food varieties, such as meat, fish and vegetable, as well as types of cuisines.
We hope our braising recipes along with our cooking tips and video with cooking techniques and suggested wine pairings will delight and inspire you to braise in your next culinary adventure. Please join us at any participating Destination Hotels & Resorts restaurant now through December to enjoy our chef's collective yet individual tribute to braising.
