Hot Kitchen Little Chickens Recipe Demonstration

6. Little Chickens, Wild Rice Pilaf, Sauted Asparagus

This episode features Cornish game hens, which are a special variety of fowl that are much like chicken, but just the right size for dinners for two. On the side there is wild rice pilaf and asparagus.

As far as flavor goes, they offer a pleasing, slightly gamey departure from chicken.  Usually game hens are found in the frozen section of the store.  Whatever works with chicken will work with game hens, and vice versa.  The appeal of the game hen is that it is like an individual whole chicken 

Inspired by simple, traditional flavors.

Hot Kitchen - Beef Crowns in Royale Sauce - Beef Stew- Recipe Demonstration

64. Beef Crowns in Royale Sauce w/ Mashed Turnips & Tapenade Triangles w/ Quickly Pickled Delights

Stewed beef is a beloved dish that is rich, satisfying and simple to make. It’s gourmet yet rustic!

This collection of recipes for two features gourmet stew, flaky pastries, creamy mashed turnips, and bright “quick pickles”.

The key thing you’ll learn, aside from a killer recipe for beef stew, is how to cook it long enough to tenderize the beef, but not so long that it shrivels up and dies. Inspired by French and American flavors.

Hot Kitchen Pork en Croute with Spaetzle Recipe Demonstration

24. Pork Loin en Croute, Spaetzle, Garlicky Beets, Caramelized Banana Cake

This menu of recipes for two is a play on a classic beef entrée.  Wrapping meat in flaky pastry adds an impressive visual effect, helps to retain moisture in the meat, and is just plain cool.

The pork is loved up with some soft sweet spices, and then glazed in orange marmalade under the pastry.  On the side are traditional butter spaetzle and a nice garlicky side of gorgeous red beets. 

Inspired by the flavors of Germany.
