Starter Recipes: Your Gateway to Cooking From Scratch
Starter recipes? What the heck are they? You've probably never heard of one before because I just made it up. I couldn't find any other name for this type of recipe, so I made up my own name. What I am referring to is a recipe which you can use to create many other recipes. For example; When I created my Chicken Parmesan Recipe with White Sauce, I used a parmesan sauce I had used in other recipes. I have a red sauce recipe which I use for lasagna, spaghetti, pizza, my original chicken parmesan recipe and many other dishes.
A more legitimate phrase in the culinary world is base sauce. I kinda used the concept of a base sauce for my starters because a base sauce is a sauce which can be used as a base for other sauces. Some of my starters are basically just base sauces. In fact my parmesan sauce started life as a white sauce then a little Italian seasoning and some parmesan cheese morphed it into a parmesan sauce.
How Do I Use These Starters?
The concept here is you can use these recipes to create many other recipes. My Brined Chicken Breast Recipe is a starter because I use those chicken breasts in many other recipes. Think of some basic recipes you have which could be used to create other recipes. I’ll post some below to get you started (hee, hee, get it, I said started). Maybe you could post some of your own below in my “Gettin’ Started” submission tool below. Who knows, you may end up in my newsletter!
