A few weeks ago I attended a second masterclass with top British chef Marco Pierre White, this time all about One Pot cooking. You may remember me writing about meeting Marco Pierre White the first time round last year. Marco has been working with Knorr UK for some time time and wholeheartedly advocates the use of stock cubes or stock pots for home cooking. Stock cubes are for when time is too short to faff around with making a stock from scratch, and particularly for when you don’t have a sous chef or a surplus of bones on hand!
The most interesting thing I learnt, was based on Marco’s suggestion for using a stock pot or cube along with fruit juice – to add an extra layer of flavour – as chefs do – to your food in a quick and easy way. So, for example, Marco told us that he might use a beef cube or stock pot mixed with prune juice when making a beef stew, or a vegetable stock cube with fresh carrot juice when making pumpkin soup. In this recipe, Marco uses a chicken stock pot and tomato juice to make a quick and easy Chicken Chasseur. If you flour your chicken before frying it, you’ll get a thicker sauce, too.
Whilst I gather my notes and my thoughts together, I have been trying out Marco’s recipe for myself at home based on a box of goodies from Forman and Field and Knorr. I also have a second box of goodies to giveaway so that one of you can try the recipe at home, too. It was a bit of a treat to use brandy as well as white wine, but you could really tell in the finished dish. It was also the first time I had used tomato juice in my cooking and I thought it was a great trick, particularly when mixed with a Knorr chicken stock pot.
The winner’s box will be delivered on Friday 13th July 2012 (so you will have to be in on that day to sign for it) and will contain –
· 1 small chicken
· 2 shallots
· white wine
· 1 Knorr Chicken Stock Pot
· tomato juice
· button mushrooms
· chopped tarragon
· chopped parsley
Come back tomorrow to find out everything I learnt from Marco Pierre White in the kitchen of his Chelsea restaurant…
NB This is a short competition and closes on Monday 9th July at midnight.
You can find plenty of home cooking inspiration and recipes from Marco and Knorr here including his Chicken Chasseur with an easy to follow video here.
With many thanks to Knorr UK and Forman and Field for the chicken chasseur box and the giveaway prize.
