http://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365223938/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false Home cooks are often wary of baking bread, assuming you need a special oven to get bakery-quality results. And most home ovens do lack the key components that result in a soft, pull-apart interior and browned, crisped exterior. To get around that, weâve adapted a technique popularized by Jim Lahey... /episodes/get/12432 /episode/12432 ChefSteps: Dinner Rolls /episode-player/12432

http://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365213330/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false Traditionally, roulade is made of boneless, skinless chicken breasts stuffed with ingredients that mask the real flavor of the chicken itself.

Sous Vide Kale Air date: 03-26-2014 Watch
http://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365208523/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false Kale is all the rage right now, and for good reason.

Quiche Lorraine Air date: 03-19-2014 Watch
http://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365202330/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false This recipe yields a classic, firm-yet-tender custard with a touch of nutmeg for a delicious rich and savory flavor. We start with a versatile quiche base and add bacon, leeks, and Gruyère. Make your own Pâte Brisée from scratch, or start with a store-bought crust. /episodes/get/12151 /episode/12151 ChefSteps: Quiche Lorraine /episode-player/12151
Sous Vide Steak Air date: 03-12-2014 Watch
http://video.pbs.org/widget/partnerplayer/2365198820/?player=WGBY-PBS&w=512&h=288&chapterbar=true&autoplay=false Cooking the perfect steak with traditional techniques like pan-roasting or grilling is tricky. It's difficult to know the true cooking temperature, and you must time things just right to avoid overcooking. Sous vide does away with the inconsistency, and allows for ultra-precise degrees of doneness. /episodes/get/12107 /episode/12107 ChefSteps: Sous Vide Steak /episode-player/12107
