Tante Marie’s Recipes & Newsletters – Overview
Over the years I have put here recipes of current interest. Sometimes, they are recipes I have taught recently on television, sometimes they are my interpretation of something I ate at a favorite restaurant, and sometimes they are just an interesting supper dish. In any case, they are intended to give you some new quick and easy cooking ideas. The recipes here are not particularly examples of what we teach at Tante Marie’s because what we are really teaching are the theory and techniques necessary to become an accomplished cook. What is emphasized in classes and courses are recipes and techniques that are not easily shown on our website. Now, I am really having fun teaching my easy recipes through my YouTube videos. I hope you find this collection of recipes fun and interesting.
If you are really interested in seeing the kinds of recipes you might learn at Tante Marie’s, you should buy The Tante Marie’s Cooking School Cookbook (Simon & Schuster, 2003). Although the chapters are organized according to subjects such as Salads or Fish and Shellfish, there is a description at the beginning of each chapter on how to make salads or cook fish, say, without a recipe. In each chapter the recipes are organized in order from easiest to harder. Throughout the book there are descriptions of almost 200 techniques. You can use the index to look up folding, or skinning hazelnuts, to name just a couple. There are also seasonal menu suggestions in the back. It is a great teaching book that is easy to read or use for reference.
