Why Use Dairy Milk
Whether baking, braising or mixing in your batter, cooking with milk complements your culinary ambitions. Making homemade versions of fresh ricotta cheese, thick yogurt and rich ice cream is a simple way to tap your inner gourmet. If you want to swap real dairy milk for another ingredient, remember that each non-dairy milk alternative has a different flavor, which can change the flavor profile or the consistency of your dishes, even for pancakes, oatmeal and smoothies.
Professional chefs, who helped to inspire the rise of the farm-to-table movement, choose fresh, local foods, like milk, to elevate their cuisine and define their menus. James Beard Award semi-finalist and “Chopped” champion Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli uses milk for his inventive, award-winning dishes at Miami’s Eating House, not only because it is a wholesome, simple ingredient, but also to create a fusion of flavors.
