CULINARY SECRETS FROM THE YARDLEY INN: THE PERFECT BRAISE
Braising meats, culinary technique by Eben Copple of The Yardley Inn

As we leave the warmth of summer, most of us will combat the chill with heartwarming stews and braises. With braising, you are taking a cut of meat that is inedible when cooked a short period of time and, through the clever use of slow, moist heat, transforming it into something tender and flavorful. Let Eben Copple, Executive Chef of The Yardley Inn, share his secret for the perfect braise. Your friends and relatives will elevate you to Master Chef with this technique.
