Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
A lot of my recipes use wine or another alcoholic beverage in them. With the cooking process, most of the alcohol evaporates, but not completely.
