Did you know that Julius Caesar had nothing to do with the invention of the salad that bears his name? The credit for this delicious dish more properly goes to Caesar Cardini, a restaurateur who came up with the idea out of a combination of necessity and creativity.

He raided his pantry and, using what he found there, concocted the recipe that went down in history. Other chefs began making Caesar Salad because of both its unique flavor and its economy--except for the lettuce and the egg in the dressing, it required no perishable ingredients.

Poaching (a moist-heat cooking method) means to cook something in barely simmering liquid (perfect for delicate foods, like eggs and fish), and it is, sadly, almost a forgotten way of cooking -- sad because it's an incredibly simple technique, it can yield the most tender, juicy meat without the fat and calories from frying or sauteing, and keeps your kitchen cooler than baking or roasting. Some poaching recipes, like the one below, use the poaching liquid itself as a sauce; it only needs only be reduced and thickened to provide the perfect accompaniment for your poached chicken dish.
