Its about the "Whys" not the "Hows"
Understanding the why's and how's of a recipe are far more important than a list of amounts and ingredients. A recipe is merely a road map, passed from one cook to the next. What makes a recipe special is the personal touch that each cook imprints on it to make it their own. Having the knowledge of "why" you do something, instead of just reading a recipe card will give you the confidence and skills to carve your own path in the kitchen. At the end of the lesson, you will feel confident enough to take this recipe and put your own touches on it, truly making it your own.
Malfatti by definition, or rough translation, means “poorly made”. We can promise you, this will not be the case after spending the afternoon with Chef Joe! A delicate and tender dumpling made from spinach and greens (or your favorite leafy green) is delicious on its own! When basted in brown butter and floating in a savory chicken broth, life just doesn’t get much better. This is the perfect recipe for a quick weeknight dinner, or a special occasion. The best part? You cannot mess these up! All you need is a big bowl, a knife, and your hands!
Brown Butter Basting
We’ll let you in on a restaurant secret from a chef - everything's better when basted in aromatics, crushed garlic, and foamy butter. Not only does this technique transform these humble delicate dumplings into a crowd pleaser, but this basting technique can be applied to cooking just about everything. From vegetables, to chicken and fish. Gain the confidence to properly baste and use foamy butter to cook in your own kitchen.
