Welcome to our first Tips and Tricks (TNT) post for Daniel Boulud and Dorie Greenspan’s Café Boulud! We’re so happy you’ve decided to join us on this culinary exploration and hope that you’ll find joy in cooking through this book with us.
Please leave your comments with any tips you have about Skate with Brown Butter and Capers (p. 50) or tricks you learned while making it.
