  • Grilled Duck Breast at The Squire’s Pub

    The Squire’s Pub in Southern Pines, NC will be featuring a boneless grilled duck breast on the menu this fall.  The secret to grilling duck is to cook the breast skin side down for about 75% of the cooking time, then turning it to finish.  Slice the breast thinly and serve over salad, rice, or potatoes.  Duck can be cooked to the customers liking, however most people like their duck cooked to a medium temperature.  We season ours with our signature Irish Stout Seasoning Rub, and served it sliced with mango chutney along side.

  • Pumpkin Soup Recipe

    The Squire’s Pub in Southern Pines, offers a pumkin soup.  The Chef’s recipe is delicious.

    I like to use the small cooking pumpkins, don’t try this recipe with the large orange Jack-o-lantern pumpkins, they are watery.  Cut the top off a small pumpkin and de-seed, then steam it in a water bath until tender, and the pulp can be peeled easily from the skin.  I make a nice betchemel sauce, using onions and carrots while creating the roux.  Season with Lawary’s seasoning, cinnamon, nutmeg, white pepper and a good pinch of curry.  Add the pumpkin pulp and puree, and finish with cream.

  • Secret to cooking spicy food

    The secret to cooking spicy food is not to make it so hot it is uncomfortable to eat.  Spice should be just enought to get the mouth to salivate, thus cleansing the palate so that it can enjoy the next bite.  Read a recipe carefully, just because it calls for cayenne pepper, doesn’t mean it is to be extremely hot.  I often add pepper at the end of the recipe so not to make the taste too bitter.  And remember you can always add more spice into a recipe, but you can’t take it out once it’s in, so add spices like peppers just a little bit at a time and taste as you go, then add more pepper if you feel that it is neccesary.
