Pascale's tips

I like my brussels sprouts al dente, in which case 5 minutes of cooking time should be enough. If you prefer softer brussels sprouts, cook them a little longer.

Chicken broth

Who makes their own broth nowadays? I can tell you that it’s a wonderfully satisfying experience. This is what cooking is all about. It brings out that instinctive, primitive wisdom in us because we all know from the generations before us that broth made from bones can be highly restorative and nutritious.

Broth strengthens our immune systems, heals our guts, digests easily, and provides us with nutrients that are easy to absorb. Commercially produced bouillon cubes and powders are simply no match for home-brewed broth.
