Welcome to the Elémentaire TV show! Episode One! Season One! Orange and Vanilla scented French Toast, and Orange Compound Butter

Angels Camp, CA....Elémentaire is the creation of two professional cooks dedicated to helping take the mystery out of making delicious meals from scratch. Our goal is to educate through the use of culinary terms and techniques and also inspire, through the use of the freshest seasonal ingredients, all who watch to make their own meals to enjoy at home. In our first episode, Dave and Jenny show how to make Orange and Vanilla scented French Toast, an Orange Compound Butter and define the term Al-Dente. Every Sunday Night at 8pm we will premier another, great, new episode of Elementaire with Jenny & Dave.
