How to season your food like the pros
Frequently the difference between home-cooking and what you get in a restaurant is the way the food is seasoned. For some advice on how to season your dishes like the pros, we turned to the Executive Chef of Smith & Co., Greg Antioho. AdYou probably need to season more than you think you doAccording to Antioho, the biggest, most common mistake at-home chefs make is under seasoning their food. Often times Chef Greg recommends you use Kosher salt to season things as it is a good size for flavoring things. This will make your dish have more complex flavors and really taste like a pro’s.

I know for others, especially my friends in the restaurant industry, this year has been very tough.

These restaurants have supported our local sports teams, donated to our kids fundraisers, been the site of many of our celebrations. So if you are in a position to help, give someone a gift card to their favorite local restaurant.

It’s maple syrup season in the D! Here’s how they make it
Bloomfield Hills – On a chilly morning, when you are stuck at home, a great way to warm yourself up is to indulge in a stack of fluffy pancakes drenched in maple syrup. Now you probably made the pancakes, but have you ever wondered how they make the maple syrup? To get one gallon of maple syrup it requires 40 buckets of sap; that is an extremely small yield. Real maple syrup is not as thick as the stuff made with high fructose corn syrup, but it is still sticky, and will drip more slowly than water. For more information on how they make maple syrup, contact the E.L. Johnson Nature center either online or by phone at 248-433-0885.
