We’re cooking up delicious, flaky buttermilk biscuits with Brown Butter Truffle Honey-stewed golden peaches and Benton’s Country Ham! You’ll learn essential knife skills, how to bake biscuits from scratch, and a delicious go-to recipe that’s the perfect balance between sweet and savory. Click the links to the left for the recipe, shopping list, and notes from the Chef for helpful tips & tricks before you get started.
1. Make sure your butter is very cold! Small pebbles of butter will remain in the dough, which evaporate into steam in your oven. The steam makes air pockets in your biscuits, which makes them flakier!
2. This delicious ham is salty on its own, so add salt sparingly!
3. Avoid the temptation to roll the biscuits too thin! They should be about 1 inch-thick after rolling.
4. Different parts of a home oven are hotter than others—make sure to rotate the biscuits halfway through so they cook evenly.
Chef Tucker Ricchio first fell in love with cooking while helping her Nonna make fresh pasta and lasagna as a young girl. After graduating with a double bachelor’s degree, she decided to pursue her dreams of becoming a Chef and received her formal culinary education from Le Cordon Bleu. Aside from her Nonna, she credits her culinary skills to Chef Suzette Gresham, who mentored her from Butcher to Sous Chef at her Michelin-starred restaurant, Acquerello. Ricchio loves sharing her passion for food (and truffles!) with her Truffle Shuffle students.
