HOT WATER PASTRY CRUST
– alright Great British Bakeoff fans, you have
asked to make a hot water crust so here you go!
We are taught when making pastry dough to

hot water crust into the mix! Hot water pastry dough
is ideal for savory pies like this perfect cold
weather comforting chicken pot pie!

crispy buttermilk fried chicken tenders

cooked on a waffle iron to create the characteristic
pocket impressions that hold the maple syrup and butter!

we’ll begin by brining the chicken tender strips,
then dredge it in a special flour and spice coating
and deep fry to crispy golden perfection!

BUTTERMILK BRINE
– brining will add moisture and flavor to our chicken,
fresh thyme, bay leaves, Tabasco, buttermilk
and the sweetness from Michigan honey

PECAN BUTTER
– creamy butter with toasted pecans

BOURBON MAPLE SYRUP
– warm Michigan maple syrup
with a kiss of bourbon!

‘SMOKE and FIRE’ WHITE CHILI

garlic, chicken broth, sweet onions, Michigan navy beans, sweet corn,
lime, herbs, spices, fire roasted poblano and charred jalapeno peppers,

“Bread making is one of those almost hypnotic businesses like a dance
from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the worlds
sweetest smells…there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no
hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel that will leave you emptier
of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”
