Braising uses a moist heat technique, in which food and a small amount of liquid are placed in a closed container and cooked over a long period of time. A successful braise mingles the flavors of the food and the liquid, and results in rich, aromatic flavors. In "Braise", superstar chef Daniel Boulud has collected the world's best braised dishes. With inspiring recipes for all kinds of braises - from meat to fish to vegetables - from around the globe, including Thailand, Italy, Mexico, Turkey, Lebanon, France, Russia, China and many other places, Bouland brings the world of braising home with welcome simplicity and intense flavor. Whether its whipping up the familiar (Pot Roast) for a family dinner to preparing the exotic (Quiabebe from Brazil) for entertaining, Boulud's expert guidance and easy-to-follow recipes offer dishes full of variety and unparalled flavor. Braise will please cooks of every skill level and satisfy even the most discriminating palate.
