Chef Instructor Elizabeth Whitt is, fortunately, no stranger to the show. When Chef Jet has a culinary quandary he goes right to Chef Elizabeth. She is a Le Cordon Bleu, Paris trained chef with expertise in both hot foods and pastry. She lived in Paris for 12 years and is fluent in the language.
In this segment Elizabeth talked about pumpkin. Should it be fresh or can it be canned? Also, the step-by-step instructions for preparing and baking the perfect, classic pumpkin pie.
Chef Elizabeth has a great tip about when to use fresh pumpkin. If the recipe is half-pumpkin (as an ingredient total) then by all means use fresh.
Elizabeth has an “Appetizers and Hors D’oeuvres” class coming up on December 5th from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
