Caramelize Onions: Reminds me of Real Estate..

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708

OK many of my readers will scratch their head, how can Endre compare Caramelizing Onions with Real Estate? Well the answer is easy, please google it and you will find out that there are people suggesting Caramelizing anywhere from 30 minutes to 50 minutes.... and may I say the result will be mediocre to lousy.

www.endrebarath.com

Then go look at Uber Chef Thomas Keller's  idea of Caramelizing Onions and you get the answer FIVE HOURS.... what is the difference? Quality and Flavor. In case you do not know who Thomas Keller is, he has three different Restaurants. The first one the French Laundry, then came Bouchon and then Per Se in New York City. Keeping in mind all three have been Michelin Rated Restaurants.

Just like Real Estate there are agents who take short cuts, you know the 30 -50 minute Caramelizers of Onions. Then there are the ones like Thomas Keller who focus on quality, and time is just part of the process.

Now if you are looking for a Realtor who will not take shortcuts and will insure you get top quality service please reach out to me directly.

Just to be clear I caramelize my onions for four to five hours and I provide top quality Real Estate Service too...

Dorte Engel  the key is turning down the heat and cooking for a long time:)Endre

Dorte Engel

Perfect for a cast iron pan with a lid. Once it gets hot, it stays that way a long time & needs only very little extra to keep it going.

Hi Endre, I understood by the time I finished reading your post. I have never made FO soup or carmelized onions but I might give it a shot as my wife does enjoy it when we are out.

Olga Simoncelli  thank you for your kind words, just to be clear when I was commissioned as a US Army Infantry Officer we were the first class that they changed to words... it used to be  commissioned as an Officer and a Gentleman.... we were just commissioned as US Army Officers:)))Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. As a former US Air Force officer, I would say the change was because you were the Army, lol.

Endre Barath, Jr. I was not referring to a TV show.  I was referring to a subscription we have to Master Class.  It is an depth interview and demonstration of various experts in many fields, like Ron Howard for movies, Thomas Keller, Alice Waters, FBI negotiators, etc.  We were at the French Laundry again this year for the annual Seal event.  Thomas was honored by the Seals at this event for his generosity.  Ron and I have both learned so many things on so many subjects that we are enthusiastic about the program.  We od not watch TV much...otherwise.  A
