Jan 29th weekly update
Good morning from Mister Butcher,
This week we will be delivering in the GTA from Wednesday through Friday. If there is demand we will go to Collingwood on Friday - please let us know as soon as possible if you are looking for delivery up north this week.
We are excited to announce the addition of two new products to our line up:
The science behind cooking: We at Mister Butcher believe that cooking is not only a delicious art but also a science. The Maillard reaction is an important scientific principle in cooking - it's a chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars that gives foods their delicious browned and flavorful crust. This reaction occurs when the surface of the food is heated to high temperatures, causing a complex series of chemical reactions that result in the formation of new compounds that give the food its characteristic taste and aroma.
This is why a well-seared steak, a crispy french fry, or a golden-brown pie crust all have a rich, complex flavor that's hard to replicate. Understanding the Maillard reaction can help you achieve the perfect sear on a steak, develop a crispy crust on bread and achieve a perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness.
If you're interested in learning more about the science behind cooking, we recommend checking out this article which provides an in-depth explanation of the Maillard reaction and how it impacts the flavour of food. Understanding the science behind cooking can help you take your culinary skills to the next level, and we hope a few of you will enjoy experimenting with the Maillard reaction in your own kitchen. Let us know.
So if you've made it this far we have a little treat to celebrate making it though January: we're offering a $5 discount on any orders placed this week.
