Little tricks make life in the kitchen so much easier, and Jacques is always ready with tips to simplify or speed up a task. Here he pops clams into the freezer for a few minutes to make opening them a breeze for his Baked Clams Madison. Jacques suggests cod as the perfect choice for those who hesitate to cook fish. It stays moist through cooking and, when topped with an olive crust in Cod in Olive-Tomato Crust, it packs a lot of flavor. Skillet Broccoli Bits make a great pairing with the fish. Finally, warm hazelnut-chocolate spread is mixed with ice cream to form the sauce in Mango with Nutella Sauce.
