As host of “Cooking Today” this past week, Chef David Burke, treated us to some of his favorite things in the food world.
We were honored to have CEO and Owner of D’Artagnan, Ariane Daguin, stop by the studio. Not only did she teach us a thing or two about duck, we were also delighted to learn her approach to cassoulet, and why it's better than Daniel Boulud's!
Plus, David shared his insider tips for breading – three different ways – and shared some samples of his delicious delicacies from Burke in the Box!
To close out the week, it was a true treat to meet Bryan Nolt of Colorado’s Breckenridge Distillery. Bryan spoke with us about his award-winning bourbon, and shared a taste of his bitters and spiced rum with David. When asked by a caller about his vodka, Bryan explained that it is gluten-free and made with 100% sweet corn.
