This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner: mnhilburn@.
Long, long ago, in a state far, far away, my friend Amy agreed to do some recipe testing for my cookbook. I was so blessed to have her on my team.
I also laughed a lot about how different our cupboards must look. She, a Kansas native, had to hunt hither and yon for certain ingredients that are simply commonplace in my California grocery stores. Amy cheerfully bought everything on the list and then said,
“Now what do I do with this bottle of cooking sherry? I only needed a tablespoon for that recipe.”
I think she might even have asked the same question about the rice vinegar I asked her to buy.
Well, as it turns out there are quite a few uses for those bottles of sherry and rice vinegar in the final edition of my cookbook, Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook. In fact, those ingredients are staples in my pantry — and used often in the book.
I almost always have those in stock because I cook with both quite frequently. Since they are affordable, easy-to-find brands, I typically buy both Nakano and Holland House brands.*
In my book, you’ll find great uses for these items in:
- Garlicky Italian Chicken Breasts
- Herb Butter Chicken Tenders
- Teriyaki Chicken Skewers
- Chicken Divan with Cheddar Crust
- Sesame Chicken with Snow Peas and Mushrooms
- Turkey Burgers with Scallions
- Gingery Pork and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps
- Hoisin-Glazed Salmon Fillets
- Soy-Ginger Pork Tenderloin
- Asian Slaw
