Ali Tila's Classic Apple Pie Recipe

Ali Tila’s Classic Apple Pie

Remember that crust is not just a vessel for filling but also an opportunity for flavor. Consider creating greater complexity of flavors in your crust by substituting part or all of the liquid in your dough with liquids that are complementary to your filling. For example, use Applejack or bourbon in your apple pie dough. Keep in mind that the egg creates a shiny surface on pastry while the milk creates the browning effect. You can always substitute water for the milk if your pastries tend to brown too much or too quickly.

Thai Sweet Hot Chicken Wings

Thai Sweet Hot Chicken Wings

It’s no secret that my food vice is fried chicken wings. If I had no self-control I’d eat about 10 pounds a day. Not just any though, these are my famous sweet and hot wings. It’s the perfect balance between sweet, hot, and savory. Using tempura flour will give you a super crunchy exterior that will soak up this great sauce.

Jet Tila's Roast Chicken Recipe

Family Dinner Roast Chicken with Shallots and Tarragon

Every cook needs to know how to roast a perfect chicken. There are three critical steps: 1. Season the bird inside and out with a dry or wet brine. I like dry because it means fewer steps and most birds are already pumped with saline and will therefore be moist. 2. Dry the bird overnight in the fridge to get perfect crispy and delicious skin. 3. Learn a simple pan sauce made from pan drippings, herbs and butter. Once you master the chicken, these same steps can be applied to any roast beast.

Jet Tila's Coca-Cola Carnitas Recipe

Coca-Cola® Carnitas

Carnitas is a versatile meat that makes a great filling for tacos, nachos, tortas, burritos and sopes. We always have it shredded in the freezer to cook up with scrambled eggs with onions, tomatoes and chiles in the morning. We call it pork-chaca, the piggy version of the beef dish machaca.

Jet Tila's Sticky Rice Recipe

Thai Sticky Rice

Most “sticky” rice is short grain, like the kind you eat at sushi.  And fragrant rice are usually long grain like jasmine or basmati.  Thai sticky is uniquely fragrant, sticky and long grain. It only grown in the region between Thailand and Vietnam. And it’s one of the few rice varieties that you actually steam. It soaks up much of its water during the soaking process. Although we call most rice steamed rice, it’s almost all boiled. A Thai sticky rice steamer is the best tool for cooking sticky rice and they are cheap to buy.
