Saute & Frying
 

There was an interesting discussion at HomeChef,  a while back regarding the difference, if any, between pan frying and sautéing.  The two techniques are similar in that they are both dry heat cooking methods in which foods are cooked over direct heat.  The differences between the two are subtle, but it is worth making the distinction, just so there is no confusion, especially when reading a recipe.

 

Recipe:

 

  • Hazelnut-Crusted Chicken
  • Wine Reduction Sauce
  • Vegetable Stir-Fry
  • Pommes Frites
  • Roasted Red Pepper Aïoli
  • Basic Mayonnaise
