Newspaper holds Taste of Home media day with sponsors Mary Ellen Plato can’t wait for school to start. Neither can Ron and Linda Burke. They were the first in line — at 6:30 am, hours before the doors opened —to purchase VIP tickets to the Taste of Home Cooking School, coming to the Augusta Civic Center on Saturday, September 10. As fans of Chef Michael Barna, they also savored the opportunity to meet him in person during Chef Michael’s recent media preview advance tour, hosted by the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel. Tour stops took place at show sponsors Hammond Lumber, Steve’s Appliances, Fortin’s Home Furnishings, Central Maine Motors Auto Group, and Hannaford’s unique LEED-certified supermarket in Augusta. While vacations come and go, a good meal well prepared is always in season. During the Cooking School, Taste of Home culinary specialist Chef Michael takes pleasure in sharing some simple and delicious recipes, as well as tips and techniques, to make your own kitchen adventures more fun and satisfying. The September 10 program at the Augusta Civic Center will be Chef Michael’s first of the Fall 2011 season—and likely the biggest, in terms of audience numbers. Though Chef Michael conducted the 2010 Cooking School at the Waterville Opera House last year, that landmark facility is closed for renovations. A number of returning and new sponsors will help to transform the civic center stage into an inviting kitchen and dining area, to showcase the recipe preparation and presentation. Chef Michael has always felt at home in the kitchen. As a child, he stood fascinated by his grandmother’s side, as she prepared wonderful family meals. “To me, cooking is like breathing,” he explains. Conducting the cooking school allows Chef Michael to combine what comes naturally with his love of being an entertainer and his emerging sense of showmanship. Friendly banter, small talk and humor are hallmarks of the Taste of Home Cooking School — and are one of the reasons why folks come back year after year. Chef Michael’s professional career in the kitchen started at the tender age of 13, when the New Jersey native began working in food service at a local retirement facility. There, he not only learned the value of hard work, but also began to cultivate his lifelong enthusiasm for food and entertaining. He is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, NY, after which he helped open three gourmet casino restaurants in Atlantic City, NJ. Later, he and his wife relocated near to Philadelphia, PA, where he was hired as Executive Sous Chef at a prestigious hotel. He has also facilitated private and online cooking classes, appeared in local and nation-

Based in Greendale, WI, the Taste of Home Cooking School is actually a highly successful national venture launched by Reader’s Digest. Chef Michael and colleagues have become local celebrities, known for their informative and entertaining style. Audience members will be converging on the spacious Civic Center from near and far. More and more men are attending the Cooking Schools — and since these are family friendly events, interested children are also welcome. Young local culinary arts students even assist with food preparations and sometimes share the stage at selected events.

Gary’s Citrus-Honey Glazed Pork Chops Serving Size: 6 Prep: Total Time: 30 minutes Ingredients: 6 center cut pork chops 4 tablespoons vegetable oil 4 tablespoons flour 1/2 teaspoon iodized salt 1/4 teaspoon finely ground pepper 1/8 teaspoon paprika 1/8 teaspoon granulated garlic 1 - 15 oz. can mandarin oranges 1/4 cup honey 1 lemon 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1/2 cup green onions, sliced Directions: In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel. Preheat the West Bend® Platinum Edition™ Non-Stick Electric Skillet to 375ºF and add the oil. While the oil is heating, toss dredge the pork in the seasoned flour. Place the pork chops in the skillet and sear until golden, about 3 minutes. Turn the chops over and sear for about 2 more minutes. Add the juice from the lemon and the mandarin oranges, honey, and Dijon. Reduce the heat to 200ºF and simmer the chops in the sauce for 15 minutes. Garnish with the mandarin orange and green onion and simmer the chops in the sauce for 15 minutes.

Before you reach for the salt shaker, consider this: according to the Mayo Clinic, the number-one health threat for both men and women is heart disease. And a big part of preventing heart disease is reducing the amount of sodium, or salt, in your diet. So, how can you eat better without sacrificing flavor? Think fresh. The less processed the food you eat, the better; processed foods (canned soup, frozen entrees and other prepared items) tend to be high in sodium. Instead, load your grocery cart with fruits and vegetables; lean meat, fish and skinless poultry; low fat or fat free dairy products; and whole grains and pastas. Taste as you cook. When a recipe calls for salt “to taste, don’t just automatically dump it in. Use salt sparingly as you taste your food at various cooking stages. If you re used to that salty taste, give it some time; your palate will soon adjust to foods that contain less or no salts. Use herbs. Either fresh or dried, herbs enhance foods flavor without sodium. Try basil, oregano, parsley, dill, onion or garlic powder, freshly ground or cayenne pepper. Citrus is another flavor-booster. Try grating lemon zest, or add citrus juice to finished dishes. Cook with stock. A great way to add flavor to pasta, rice, potatoes, and meat dishes is to cook them in or with a lower sodium stock (chicken, beef/meat, seafood, or vegetable), a healthier choice than high-sodium bouillon cubes or canned broth. If you make your own stock, keep extra in the freezer to always have some on hand. Load your pantry with prepared stock, being sure to choose a brand that s lower in sodium and as close to homemade as possible. Kitchen Basics stocks contain even less sodium than the leading reduced-sodium broth. Kitchen Basics Real Cooking Stocks are slowly simmered from meat, bones, vegetables & herbs... and just like homemade these stocks are ALL NATURAL without added MSG, chemicals, fillers or excess salts. A great pantry addition for soups and meals or to flavor your favorite fall vegetables. Whether you are controlling ingredients for weight loss, heart health, renal health, to avoid certain foods due to allergies or to simply stay true to your culinary basics...Kitchen Basics Stocks enable ingredient conscious cooks to control the sodium level without over seasoning. Try this fantastic recipe for Asparagus Risotto and see how using wonderful ingredients can add flavor without having to pile on the salt!

Asparagus Risotto Submitted By: Chef Edward Marlier Ingredients 1 pound asparagus 4 Tbsp butter 1/2 cup chopped onion or shallots 1 cup arborio rice 1/2 cup dry white wine 32oz. carton Kitchen Basics Unsalted Chicken Stock 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup freshly shaved Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup cooked bacon, cut into small trips (pancetta) Directions Prepare the asparagus by breaking off discarding the tough ends (about the last inch of the spear). Cut into 1 to 1 1/2inch pieces. Bring a saucepan with a quart of water to a boil. Blanch the asparagus pieces for 2 minutes. Remove the asparagus pieces to an ice water bath to shock the asparagus into a vibrant green color and to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside. In a 3 or 4 quart saucepan, heat 3tbsp. butter on medium heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Add rice and cook for 2 minutes more, stirring until nicely coated. While the onions are cooking, bring the stock to a simmer in a saucepan. Add the wine. Slowly stir, allowing the rice to absorb the wine. Once the wine is almost completely absorbed, add stock to the rice 1/2 cup at a time until the liquid is almost completely absorbed. Stir often to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Continue cooking and stirring rice until the rice is tender, but still firm to the bite. Remove from heat. Gently stir in the grated Parmesan cheese, the remaining butter, and the asparagus. Garnish with bacon and shaved parmesan and serve immediately. Serves 6.

Flavorful Pork Pairings Pork’s versatility brings exciting flavors to the forefront

Next time you’re searching for flavor inspiration in the kitchen, take a closer look at your favorite cut of pork. Whether you’re planning a festive party or a relaxed weeknight meal, pork’s versatility makes it a go-to for quick, delicious dishes in a spectrum of vibrant flavors. Pork chops with applesauce is tried and true, but what about pairing a juicy roast tenderloin with ginger and soy sauce? No matter the occasion, pork is the perfect mate for all your favorite flavors — and some flavors you might never expect. Succulent tenderloins pair with sweet and savory glazes like honey and sesame, but are also suited for more tart and intense flavors like a refreshing pickled onion relish or a cocoa and coffee rub. And because many cuts, like pork tenderloin, chops and loin roasts can be cooked up in less than 30 minutes, pork pairs perfectly with your busy schedule too. And...have you heard? The USDA lowered its temperature recommendation for pork. For juicy, tender meat, cook loins, chops and roasts to 145ºF with a three minute rest time. This temperature will yield a product

that’s typically pinker in color and juicier than any pork you ve ever made. Give the new temperature a testrun with this Honey Sesame Tenderloin. Roast up a couple for a satisfying, crowd-pleasing meal, or a playful dinner for two with tasty leftovers. For more versatile pork recipes and time-saving tips, visit PorkBeInspired.com or Facebook.com/PorkBeInspired. Follow the National Pork Board on Twitter @AllAboutPork. About the National Pork Board The National Pork Board has responsibility for Checkoff-funded research, promotion and consumer information projects and for communicating with pork producers and the public. Through a legislative national Pork Checkoff, pork producers invest $0.40 for each $100 value of hogs sold. The Pork Checkoff funds national and state programs in advertising, consumer information, retail and foodservice marketing, export market promotion, production improvement, technology, swine health, pork safety and environmental management.

Honey Sesame Tenderloin Ingredients: 1 pork tenderloin, (about one pound) 1/2 cup soy sauce 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1 tablespoon ginger root, grated 1 tablespoon sesame oil 1/4 cup honey 2 tablespoons brown sugar 4 tablespoons sesame seeds Cooking Directions: Place tenderloin in self-sealing bag; add soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil; seal bag and toss to mix thoroughly. Refrigerate 2-24 hours. Heat oven to 450º degrees F. Remove tenderloin from marinade, discarding marinade. On a shallow plate mix together honey and brown sugar; place sesame seeds on another plate. Roll tenderloin in honey mixture to coat evenly, and then roll in sesame seeds. Place in shallow pan and roast for 20-27 minutes, until internal temperature reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time. Slice to serve. Serves 4 Serving Suggestions: Pork tenderloins are often packaged two to a bag; plan a meal another night with pork tenderloin medallions or kabobs.

Start a new holiday tradition with a simple way to help others The holiday season is a time to rejoice and celebrate. Delicious meals are prepared as friends and families gather together and toast the season. It is also an important time of year to think about the members of our communities who don’t have a table to sit around filled with food and loved ones. With your help, Gallo Family Vineyards will make strides to ensure that seniors in need in local communities will have access to warm and nutritious meals with the second annual Every Cork Counts program — a campaign to raise up to $50,000 to benefit the Meals On Wheels Association of America®. For the second year in a row, the Every Cork Counts program will invite Americans across the country to send in the corks from their Gallo Family Vineyards wine bottles as a pledge to end senior hunger and raise funds for Meals On Wheels. From October 1 – December 31, 2011 a $5 donation will be made to Meals On Wheels for every Gallo Family Vineyard cork returned in the mail.* Americans will also be invited to join the campaign through Facebook to get their networks of friends and family involved in the cause. “We believe the world’s a better place when families don’t just take care of their own, but take care of each other,” says Stephanie Gallo, a third generation Gallo family member. “It’s important to find ways to give back. We’re proud to partner with Meals On Wheels as they seek to help such important members of our community. It has become an important holiday tradition for us.” In honor of its newest tradition, Gallo Family Vineyards would like to share a signature holiday dish from its family cookbook. This baked butternut squash risotto recipe is a comforting seasonal dish, ideal for sharing with others. It pairs wonderfully with the buttery notes in the Gallo Family Vineyards Chardonnay. And remember to save your cork! *Gallo will donate $5 for each Gallo Family Vineyards cork mailed between 10/01/11 and 12/31/11 and received by 01/10/12 to Meals on Wheels®, up to $50,000. To learn more about Every Cork Counts and where to send your corks visit the official website at www.EveryCorkCounts.com, www.mowaa.org or join in at www.Facebook.com/GalloFamilyVineyards.

Baked Butternut Squash Risotto From the Gallo Family recipe book This delicious, seasonal, low-maintenance risotto bakes in the oven — there is no stirring, no careful watching, no stress! Serve this with pork loin, turkey, chicken, and beef — or all by itself as a casual, meatless entrée. Tastes best with the buttery flavors in our Gallo Family Vineyards Chardonnay. Ingredients: 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth 1/2 cup water 2 cups butternut squash cubes, fresh or frozen and thawed 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 cup chopped onion 2 tablespoons mixed chopped fresh herbs (such as chives, tarragon, Italian parsley, oregano, dill) or 2 teaspoons mixed dried herbs 1 1/2 cups Arborio or short grain rice 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper 1 cup grated Parmesan, Asiago, or Gruyère cheese Arborio or short grain rice can be found in most grocers’ Italian aisles. Directions: Preheat oven to 350˚F. In a large saucepan, bring broth, water, and butternut squash to a boil over high heat. While broth mixture is heating, place butter, onion, herbs, rice, and pepper in a 3-quart casserole dish. Pour boiling broth mixture over the rice mixture and stir to blend. Carefully transfer casserole to oven. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until rice and squash are tender. Stir in the cheese and serve hot. Yield: 8 servings Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 45 minutes

Bakers, start your ovens The holidays are a key time for baking, whether you are hosting the family get together, bringing a hostess gift for a party, or plan on giving dessert treats as presents. Yet, holiday baking can leave some feeling intimidated at the thought of toiling away for hours in the kitchen. Make this year s holiday baking enjoyable, by having a few quick and delicious recipes in your repertoire. Pies are always popular, and are easy to make ahead so they are ready when you need them. A perennial favorite that always impresses and can be prepared in no time, is the Eggland s Best Amazing Pecan Pie. The recipe infuses the flavors of the holiday season and calls for less than 10 ingredients, including a pre-made pie shell, to save you time. “The Amazing Pecan Pie is one of my favorite go-to recipes to make during the holiday season,” said Barbara Seelig Brown, Chef and Cookbook Author of Stress Free Cooking. “It is so easy to whip up that I usually make a couple of pies at once and freeze them, so I have desserts on hand for company, or to give out as holiday gifts.” Another tip Barbara recommends for baking is to use high-quality ingredients

that will help ensure your dishes come out perfectly every time. “Eggs are an essential ingredient in baking, which is why I only use Eggland’s Best eggs. Not only are they consistently fresh so they tend to perform better in recipes, but also offer superior nutrition, with less saturated fat than ordinary eggs,” said Barbara Seelig Brown. For more information, cooking tips and recipes, visit www.egglandsbest.com. About Eggland’s Best Eggland’s Best is the No. 1 branded egg in the U.S. and contains less saturated fat, double the Vitamin D and omega3 fatty acids, as well as 10 times more vitamin D as ordinary eggs. The distinctive “EB” stamp on the shell assures consumers that the eggs meet the highest standards of taste, nutrition and quality. Eggland’s Best hens are fed a strictly controlled, highquality, all-natural, all-vegetarian diet without added hormones, antibiotics or steroids of any kind. EB eggs are available in large, extra large, jumbo, cage free and organic varieties, and are certified as Kosher.

Amazing Pecan Pie Ingredients 3 Large Eggland’s Best eggs, lightly beaten 1 cup Dark Corn Syrup 2/3 cup Sugar 1/3 cup Butter, melted 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 1/4 teaspoon Salt 1 cup Pecans, halved 1 9-inch Pie Shell, unbaked Preparation In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter (melted and cooled), vanilla and salt until well blended. Evenly arrange pecan halves over bottom of pie shell. Carefully pour egg mixture over pecans. Bake in preheated 350º F oven until filling is set, and crust is brown, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Cookies get healthier with whole grains Whole grains are an important part of a healthy diet, but sometimes they’re a challenge to incorporate into your daily menu. Once you’ve made the decision to include more whole grains in your diet, the easiest place to start might be — perhaps surprisingly with cookies. After all, who doesn’t indulge in cookies? According to King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking, “Studies show that when American bakers turn on the oven, they’re more likely to bake cookies than anything else.” Cookies are sweet and flavorful, full of chips and nuts, candy and dried fruit. And that s why they re so easy to convert to whole grain. Exchange whole wheat flour for some of the all-purpose flour in a cookie laden with dark brown sugar, butter, toasted pecans, and chocolate chips, and no one will be the wiser. “Our best hint: Let the baked cookies rest for 24 hours, at room temperature, before serving,” says Susan Reid, editor of The Baking Sheet at King Arthur Flour. “This rest gives the bran a chance

to soften, lessening the ‘gritty’ mouth feel some folks get from whole wheat.” These cookies are a great way to convince yourself (and your family) that baking with whole grains can be a tasty experience. Once you give them a try, you’ll look for reasons to bake with whole grains. More delicious whole grain recipes are available at kingarthurflour.com.

Basic Whole Grain Cookies Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter 3/4 cup King Arthur 100% 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar White Whole Wheat Flour or 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed Premium Whole Wheat Flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup quick rolled oats 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 2 tablespoons orange juice 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 2 cups chips, nuts, and/or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract dried fruit 1 large egg Directions: (Beat together the butter, sugars, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla until well combined. Add the egg, beating till smooth. Scrape the sides of the bowl, and beat again until smooth. Add the flour and oats, beating to combine. Beat in the orange juice, then the add-ins. Cover the cookie dough, and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled; at least several hours, or overnight. When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets. Drop the cookies by the traditional teaspoonful (about 2 measuring teaspoons, about a 1” ball) onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2” apart. If the cookie dough has been refrigerated, bake the cookies for 13 to 14 minutes, until they’re a very light golden brown, and a bit darker around the edges. For non-refrigerated dough, bake for about 11 minutes. Remove them from the oven, and cool right on the baking sheets. Yield: about 5 dozen small cookies. Whole-Grain Cookie Tips In plain-textured and/or light-colored cookies, exchanging the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour produces a noticeable but pleasant change. To temper the sometimes tannic flavor of the whole wheat, add 2 tablespoons orange juice per cup of flour if the recipe calls for liquid (milk or water). In “craggier” cookies, substituting up to 50 percent whole wheat for the all-purpose flour is almost unnoticeable. Substituting 100 percent whole wheat, with no all-purpose flour, often works well, though we can t guarantee it for every recipe. If your cookie recipe directs you to chill the dough, do it! Chilling will create a more tender, lighter-textured cookie that won t spread too much when baking.
