Chef Bryce Shuman Recipes - Betony Vegetable Dishes - New York Culinary Experience 2015 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Edward F. Nesta   
Chef Bryce Shuman and Edward Nesta - photo by Luxury ExperienceChef Bryce Shuman brought a delicious taste of the New York restaurant, Betony, with his recipes for vegetable dishes during the New York Culinary Experience 2015 hosted by New York magazine culinary editor Gillian Duffy and The International Culinary Center, CEO and founder Dorothy Cann Hamilton.

 

American Chef Bryce Shuman grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and explored the world with his family, traveling to exotic places for his mother's work as a cultural anthropologist, and being exposed to new cuisines.

Like planting a seed and watching it grow, Chef Bryce Shuman entered the culinary world in 2001 where he worked as a dishwasher at the Mesh Café in Greenville, North Carolina before working his way up to chef de cuisine. From the Southeast, he moved to the Northwest in 2003 to  San Francisco, California to attend the California Culinary Academy (CCA) and honed what he was learning in school by working at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant, Postrio, at night.

He traveled to Europe to increase his knowledge, and in 2007 moved back East where he worked for six years at Eleven Madison Park (EMP) with Chef Daniel Humm, rising on the culinary ladder to Executive Sous Chef.

In 2013, he opened the New York restaurant, Betony, with former EMP colleague Eamon Rockey as the General Manager. When not in the kitchen, Chef Bryce Shuman enjoys playing blues guitar, taking shots with his Polaroid Reporter SE, and annoying his cats.

Taking the class with Chef Bryce Shuman in April 2015 provided me with the opportunity to explore the world of vegetables, presented in new ways. I love working with different types of dough recipes, and Chef Bryce's dough recipes for the Tarte Flambe is easy to mix, uses cold fermentation (leave in refrigerator overnight) and unlike many other dough recipes, you do not have to wait until the dough reaches room temperature to work with it, which makes it ready to use when you are ready to create your Tarte Flambe, which is one of Chef Bryce's popular appetizers at Betony (www.Betony-nyc.com).

The recipe for Tarte Flambe Green Garlic, Guanciale consisted of bread flour, mustard powder, sugar, honey, water, olive oil, yeast, and salt. After a spin in the kitchen mixer, and a night in the refrigerator, you roll out the dough to form a thin crust. Our recipe was topped with green garlic crème fraiche, pickled green garlic, and guanciale (an Italian cured meat or salami made from pork jowls or pork cheeks), but for your toppings, just use your imagination and have fun making your own Tarte Flambe.

We also made fried asparagus that had the lightest of tempura batters that created a crispy foam-like coating that was irresistible. This is another very popular appetizer at Chef Bryce Shuman's restaurant. As to what will end up in the light tempura batter, Chef Bryce varies the vegetables according to the season, uses different pickles, nuts, and other tempting treats.
