Stripped Down Kitchen – Winter Comfort Food
After the Holidays, the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Dinner, it’s time to slow it down in the Kitchen. It’s still winter outside, so Chef Geoff and Rocky decided it’s time for some braise and simmer comfort food with a great Cioppino, some Sheppard’s Pie, and a couple of simple soups.
We are joined by Martin James from Slide Ridge, http://www.slideridge.com/discussing Honey Wine Vinegar and the added pop it can provide as a nice ‘flavoring agent’ to go with your sauces and stews.
Light up the fire, download a classic movie and curl up on the couch with a couple of these recipes.
