Digital Thermometer — An Essential Kitchen Tool

A few weeks back, I  taught a private cooking class and we focused our attention on preparing meat. We made some delicious recipes such as Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb; Flatiron Pot Roast and Pork Tenderlion with Port Wine Reduction. My cooking student was surpirsed to find that a digital thermometer is essential. Purchasing one is a very small price to pay compared to the cost of overcooking a lovely rack of lamb or a gorgeous beef rib roast. By using a digital thermometer,  you are able to determine the internal temperature of your meat. You are almost always going to over cook or under cook a large piece of meat if you simply stick it in the oven and hope for the best. Recipe guidelines are just that — guidelines. To know what’s really going on, you need to know the internal temperature of your meat.  So, please for all you cooks out there — get a digital thermometer. The Taylor brand makes several ones to choose from and they make great gifts. I have had mine for at least 8 years and it works wonderfully.
