From the Cooking Class: How to Season Food

How to Season Food

Dear Aspiring Chef,

There’s something magical about eating foods with just the right spices or smelling the aroma of fresh herbs as you’re cooking dinner. The right herbs and spices can turn a meal into a masterpiece. They can bring warmth, depth, or brightness to your cooking. But sometimes they don’t work the way you want them to.

Do you ever feel like your meals don’t have the flavors you imagined they might? Get frustrated by recipes that tell you to “salt and pepper to taste?” Feel lost when you’re supposed to add fresh herbs, but you only have dried? In this class, I’ll walk you through the solutions to each of those questions. We’ll go over different ways to create your own spice blends, grinding techniques for the perfect mix, and how to give your dried herbs and spices a long, healthy shelf life.

Learn to season your food with confidence—all in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s How to Season Food streaming-video cooking class with me, Chef Addie Gundry!

How to Season Food

Every chef, including me, has a few favorite recipes, but this one may be the best ever. How can you go wrong with a Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese? I like to use fresh nutmeg in this dish, as well as ground mustard. Ground mustard is a great way to get mustard flavor into a recipe since it is more potent than, say, yellow mustard.

Start by buttering a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, then whisk together your melted butter and flour in a large saucepan. Add in the milk and cheese and season with salt, pepper, ground mustard, and freshly grated nutmeg. Once your cheese sauce is thickened, pour it over the cooked pasta.

Top with toasted bread crumbs and bacon. Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes and voilà! You have a delicious meal on your table!

Bonus tip! You can substitute different cheeses for the gouda; add broccoli, spinach, or sliced carrots; or recreate this dish in so many ways.

To learn how to make your own rubs and blends, watch How to Season Food, right now—one of many classes in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s Library, which is included with your trial!

The How to Season Food class includes four total recipes, as well as ideas on how you can make your own spice blends at home. You’ll get plenty of insight into seasoning your foods, along with the complete recipes and instructions for each of these blends. In addition to the Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese recipe, you’ll get:

  • Copycat Texas Steak Rub—I love using dry rubs on steak because the juicy steak will suck in the flavors of the spice blend. I’ll show you exactly how to make your own slightly sweet, slightly spicy rub, and you’ll learn a simple trick that will help spread the rub evenly on your steak. As an added bonus, this seasoning actually helps tenderize your steak, too!
  • Chinese Five Spice—You can make this with whole spices or pre-ground. In this class, I’m using whole spices, so I can show you how to use a mortar and pestle to make this very traditional spice blend.

And to complete your How to Season Food class, you’ll find out how to make and use a seasoning blend in a meal, and you get a full-color chart of common herbs and spices:

  • Italian Seasoning for Chicken— You don’t have to blend your spices ahead of time to make a rich spice blend. For this dish, I’ll show you how to make a layered seasoning for an Italian-style chicken.
  • Herb and Spice Chart—This indispensable chart should be in every kitchen. Learn how to pair 23 common herbs and spices with dozens of fruits, vegetables, fish, and meats. Discover which herbs and spices complement each other and find out how to make your meals come alive with flavor.

Along with your video class, you’ll get the accompanying eCookbook PDF, all the class’s recipes and instructions in written form, and full-color pictures of each dish—read it all on any device or print it out for easy use in your own kitchen.
