In the month since thirschfeld added his first recipe, we've been lucky to have his insights sprinkled throughout the site. His sophisticated yet wholesome recipes are packed with useful tips gleaned from years of working in restaurants, teaching at culinary school and experimenting in his own home kitchen. He offers professional plating ideas in his Beets Mimosa, introduces us to oft-overlooked crumb-based bread puddings in his Cherry Bread Pudding Jubilee and shares his secret for getting the most velvety mouthfeel from a stock (by tossing in a few gelatin-rich chicken feet) in his Stock Under Pressure. Be sure to check out his website for more chef's tips, recipes from life on his farm in Indiana and photos that could easily hold court in any glossy food magazine. See thirschfeld's full profile and fan him here.
