A Collection of Recipes by Chefs’ for Chefs. 1


OUR STORY In 1956 following the Korean War, two Cypriot cousins, once immigrants, now Veterans, returned to New York City and

joined forces. The Veterans’ Butter and Egg Company was soon founded in a small warehouse on Greenwich Street.

Peter Pappas, an original partner, found immediate success

with the company that provided butter, eggs and cheese to many of New York City’s restaurants.

Peter had two sons, Christopher & John, who grew up in the

business, helping after school and during summer vacations. After college, Chris was recruited to play basketball in

Europe professionally. This experience enabled Chris to

discover many of Europe’s culinary splendors. Inspired by

his experience, Chris sensed a real business opportunity in

providing unique foods & superior ingredients to chefs back at home. Upon his return to the United States, he recruited his brother John, & together they transformed Veterans’

Butter and Egg Company into Dairyland USA, with hopes

of becoming a major distributor. Throughout the following 35 years, Chris & John led the company through major

expansion & development to become The Chefs’ Warehouse.

WHO WE ARE The Chefs’ Warehouse is a family-operated specialty food

distributor purveying the world’s best ingredients for over 35

years. Our culinary experts are dedicated to supporting chef’s every need with unparalleled service and support. Located in major metropolitan areas across the United States and Can-

APPETIZERS

Directions 1.

Place all cheeses on board first. Plan the board around the cheese options. Firm cheese should be placed to start and more moist/ fresh cheese last. Cut the firm cheese in different styles. Place cheese options opposite each other to give a more aesthetically pleasing appeal. Spread the different cheeses around the layout of board. You can also place any empty bowls you may intend to fill.

2.

Place charcuterie on board, strategically around cheese and accoutrement bowls but keep in mind of other items to add after the meats. Cut pepperoni circles into half moons or fold salami into fourths to make rivers and delicately place sliced prosciutto into little circular roses. You can always readjust after adding the accoutrements.

3.

Be sure any sliced or cut fresh produce is slightly dry before placing on board. Leave any produce out on paper towel an hour in advance to building the board. After confirming it is slightly dried, place produce near cheese options and around any bowls used for jams or honey. Keep in mind of the flavor profile of the cheese you are placing it next to.

4.

Place crunchy items on your board, cracker assortments, baguette slices, breadsticks and any nut options you may have. Also add any crunchy dry produce sticks you may be using.

5.

Fill any bowls you may have placed on the board. Don’t forget to leave utensils near the board for serving.

6.

Garnish your board with fresh herbs or edible flowers. And don’t forget to add cheese knives or serving utensils.

7.

Serve and enjoy your board!

CHEESE & CHARCUTERIE BOARD TIPS •

Pre-slice or cube any firm cheese. Blue cheese can be crumbled or placed in wedges on board. Fresh cheese should be placed on boards last to keep from spreading as they come to room temperature. Always choose an assortment of firmness, flavors, and ripeness when picking options.

Leave small cheese knives or toothpicks on or around the board so guest are not using their fingers to pick.

Put olives, cornichons, jams, honey and or any nuts you do not want scattered on the board into small bowls.

Pre-slice your charcuterie. After slicing, fold the salami into quarters and preplace your meats on the board. Cut circular charcuterie into half moons.

Nuts and crackers need little to no preparation. Leave these for last.

Pre cut or slice any large size produce and leave aside on paper towel for about an hour. You do not want moist or freshly cut produce on the board.

Leave out a side plate with additional crackers or baguettes slices.

KING ARTHUR BAKING COMPANY SIR GALAHAD FLOUR SKU # GF298


APPETIZERS

Directions Biga 1. Stir the water, flour, and yeast together, cover, and let rest at room temperature for 12 to 16 hours. Dough 1. Add the water to the biga, mixing to incorporate the two. Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a separate bowl, and

add to the biga-water mixture. Mix on low speed of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook until the dough becomes

cohesive, about 2 minutes. Increase the mixer to medium speed and knead to form an elastic, sticky dough, about 3 to 4 minutes. Resist the urge to add more flour unless the dough is truly “soupy.”

2. Cover the dough in the bowl, let it rise for 1 hour, then gently deflate it. Let it rise another hour, then turn it out onto a liberally floured work surface, and sprinkle lots of flour on top.

3. Flatten the dough to an 8” x 10” rectangle and cut it into two pieces, each 4” x 10”. 4. Transfer the loaves onto a piece of parchment, leaving about 6” between them. Cover with a lightly greased piece of plastic wrap or a freestanding plastic cover, and let rise until they’re very puffy, 11/2 to 2 hours.

5. About 30 minutes before the loaves are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 500°F. If you have a baking stone, place it in the middle of the oven when you start preheating, so it gets nice and hot.

6. Spritz the dough with water; or add steam to your oven (see “Cooking Tips” below). If you’re baking on a stone,

transfer the bread to the stone, parchment and all. If you’re using a pan, transfer the loaves on their parchment to a baking sheet, and place them on a middle rack of the oven. Lower the oven temperature to 425°F.

7. Bake the ciabatta until it’s golden brown, approximately 22 to 25 minutes. Turn the oven off, place ciabatta on the

oven’s middle rack (remove the stone if you’ve used one), crack the door open about 2-inches, and allow ciabatta to cool completely in the turned-off oven.

COOKING TIPS •

For extra-crusty crust and the best rise, add steam to your oven as follows: 1.

While the oven is preheating, place an empty cast iron frying pan on the oven rack below the stone. If possible, adjust stone and pan so that the pan isn’t directly under the stone, making it easier for steam to reach the baking bread.

2.

Once you’ve placed the bread in the oven, pour about 1 cup of boiling water into the cast iron frying pan. Steam will billow from the pan upwards to envelop the baking bread; be sure to wear good oven mitts to shield your hands and arms. Quickly close the oven door to trap the steam.

COOKING TIPS •

At home and in the professional kitchen, these cookies work great with vanilla ice cream, whether in an ice cream sandwich or as a garnish for a sundae. Kids love them as much as adults.

They’re great for a sweet bite at the end of a meal, as part of a cookie tray, or as an addition to a tea or mini dessert presentation.

Do not overwhip the eggs: 3 minutes/medium speed hand mixer, is all you need.

Do not overbake: the texture is perfectly crisp on the outside soft on the inside when slightly under-baked.

These cookies store really well in the freezer: Wrap logs in paper or plastic and store in freezer and you’ll have ready to bake cookies at your fingertips.

Chocolate Substitutions •

If you don’t have 38% Soleil d’Or on hand, Guittard’s Milk Maxi Chip works well. Great performing substitutions for the 64% Etoile du Nord are 72% Coucher du Soleil and 72% Onyx.
