Chef’s Notes

Here are a few pointers to help you perfect this delicious recipe!

Sautéing Mushrooms

Sautéing mushrooms is an easy task once you know how to do it. The trick is to not overcrowd the pan. That’s because overcrowding causes the mushrooms to steam rather than to brown and caramelize, which is what gives the mushrooms all their wonderful flavor!

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, drizzle in your Tantillo Premier Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and add your mushrooms. Again, make sure you have ample room between each mushroom. If you’re cooking for a large group, it might be best to cook your mushrooms in batches. Sauté for 5-7 minutes until tender and nicely browned. Yum!

Cooking Garlic

There is a thin culinary line between fragrant, flavorful sautéed garlic and overcooked, bitter garlic.

There are two ways to cook garlic perfectly. Either cook it gently over medium to low heat (before deglazing with a liquid), or simply add your garlic towards the end of the cooking process, just a couple minutes before serving.

Lobster 101

There are two ways to cook a whole lobster: you can either boil it, or steam it.

The Boiling Method

·         Fill a large pot with water (enough to completely cover the lobster), and bring it to a boil over high heat.

·         Season the water with salt, citrus, herbs, or a flavorful liquid like beer or broth.

·         Place the lobster in the pot, cover with a lid, and cook for 8-10 minutes for a 1 lb. or a 1 ½ lb. lobster.

The Steamed Method

·         Fill the bottom of a steamer pot with liquid.

·         Season the water with a flavor-boosting liquid.

·         Top with the perforated insert, add the lobster, and cover with the lid.

·         Steam for 10-12 minutes for a 1 lb. or a 1 ½ lb. lobster.

Plating Pasta Perfectly

We have a few tricks for picture-perfect pasta plating:

             Once your pasta is nicely sauced and ready for the plate, portion the pasta into the ladle using tongs, and twirl with a carving fork. The pasta will “climb” up the fork in smooth strokes.

             Place your tongs underneath the fork and transfer to the plate, making sure to catch any drips along the way.

             Stand the fork up in the center of the plate, holding the handle. Slowly lift the fork, removing the pasta. You may need to coax the noodles a bit with the tongs.

             Spoon additional sauce (if needed) over the pasta before serving, and add any additional toppings. Just like that, you have perfectly plated pasta!
