Taken from Brown's _Good Eats_ episode "American Classics: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce." He insists on freshly ground meat from whole cuts, so you know exactly what you're getting; he has the butcher grind it for him, but you can do it yourself if you have the equipment. Be sure to use a WHITE wine for the sweetness and bright acidity; a red will tend to get astringent with this kind of cooking.
From "Good Eats," episode "Flat Is Beautiful: Going Crackers". You really need an aluminum-free double-acting baking powder for this, but if you can't find one, go with 1/2 t baking powder and 1 t cream of tartar.
From "Good Eats," episode "Flat Is Beautiful: Going Crackers." If you can't find graham flour, sift together 2/3 c all-purpose flour, 1/3 c coarse-ground wheat bran and 1 1/2 tsp wheat germ. Avoid baking powder with aluminum; it will make your crackers taste metallic.
Chicken Kiev', aka Tsiplenokovo Po-Kievski and also known as 'Chicken Supreme' (in Europe), is a boned and flattened chicken breast that is then rolled around a chilled piece of herbed butter which is then breaded and fried. This method of preparing chicken is not of Russian origin as the name Kiev' would imply. It was actually created by French chef, Nicolas (Francois) Appert (1749-1841). It is said that restaurants in NYC wanting to welcome the many Russian immigrants gave the name Kiev. The name went back to Europe and there known as 'Chicken Supreme'. After World War II, Chicken Kiev became popular in Russian restaurants. Russian cookbooks have recipes for a similar dish called "côtelettes de volaille". This version is compliments of Alton Brown. We baked it (rather than fry) at 400F. for 30 minutes with great results. The tarragon and panko give this recipe a very unique flavor.
We watched AB make this on his 'Good Eats' show and it looks so succulent and is surprisingly simple to make! He states: "It's difficult to get salt to stay on something other than a flat surface, so using a dough method works best".
This is from Alton Brown's Good Eats show and it's an easy and good mac n cheese recipe to have on hand. You won't be buying the boxed stuff again after eating this. (edited 8/15/2008 - This was initially posted with 3/4 tsp of dry mustard but after making this a few times I agree with the reviewer that said this amount is too much so I've reduced it to 1/2 tsp.)
I've yet to cook turkey legs. They're so inexpensive---I've got to try them soon. This recipe in Alton Brown's "Feasting On Asphalt - The River Run," was inspired by a dish at Melanie's Soul Food in north Memphis.
I love buffalo wings, but not all the deep frying that is involved. I was watching "Good Eats" one day and Alton Brown's fool proof method to delicious buffalo wings was discovered! I did make a few adjustments to this recipe that helped me out... but stayed true to the original for the most part. This method may be a little time consuming, but the end result of crispy, fall of the bone, tender wings is well worth it. The cook time includes the 1 hour in which the wings rest/cool in the refrigerator before baking.
This might even be better than grilling and is just as easy! (No joke!) Super tender, super juicy, super flavorful! Can't go wrong with Alton Brown! Note: Cooking time includes time to bring steaks to room temperature.
