Unit 12: Moist-heat Cooking Methods is all about comfort food—from braising, stewing, pot roasting, steaming, pressure cooking, submersion, and combination cooking—pretty much everything you might want on a chilly autumn night in front of a fire. Just my luck, it is late October, slightly dreary, and definitely cold.

It was in this unit, that I realized that I needed to print each of the practice recipes so as not to miss a single one even though I could not make them all before completing the unit. Braised peppercorn short ribs, milk-braised pork, oxtail ragu, rustic beef stew to name just a few; and too many rich meals in a short period of time! But over a longer stretch, these meals are so flavorful and satisfying, they are well worth making. And then there is steaming and poaching which offered a bit of a break from the heavy meals but still lots of flavor. The poached salmon was tender, moist, and still flavorful, and my favorite poaching assignment.
