Make Food Great with Just One Ingredient
Alcohol isn’t just an accompaniment to a great meal, but the secret ingredient to make dishes pop with flavor, added depth and complexity. Emily and Matt Clifton, founders of the blog Nerds with Knives, show you how to use vodka to make extra crispy batter in Ultra-Crispy Fish with Vodka and Beer Batter, heighten the aroma of the spicy, garlicky sauce in the Tequila and Lime Shrimp Scampi and bring perfect balance to dishes like Vermouth-Braised Leeks or Classic Chicken Piccata just by adding white wine.
Through their knowledge of boozy cooking science, you’ll make classic dishes that pack a delicious punch. So put on your apron, pop a cork, raise your glass and get ready to cook.
