As I may have mentioned a few hundred times, we try to be very careful about what we eat.  Braising has become my alternative technique for cooking almost anything.  A TINY smidgen of olive oil in a non-stick pan allows me to caramelize veggies and meats, then I de-glaze the pan with a little water that helps steam the food to the proper temperature.  No frying needed.  This next show wants to see you alternative methods.  Might have to enter this one myself…

Check out this Call for Entries for Methods (Alternative) from the Kiernan Gallery (Lexington, Virginia). The entry is very reasonable, and the juror is well-documented. Take a look…
