Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Maple Ginger Glazed Pork Chops

Spring is here and the sap is flowing, support your local sugarmaker and give these pork chops a zesty maple glaze. In a small sauce pan saute a finely chopped shallot in a little bit of olive oil until translucent. Add two tablespoons of minced ginger, a pinch or two of cayenne pepper, give it a minute, then stir in a quarter cup each of soy sauce and maple syrup. Simmer until reduced by a third, or until it’s a syrupy consistency.

Season your pork chops with salt, then broil, bake, or barbeque until the desired doneness. In a large bowl, toss to coat with the glaze, plate, and drizzle the remaining glaze over the chops.
