Pane cooking is simply about passing food through seasoned flour, beaten egg and white breadcrumbs to give your food a coating ready for cooking.
Pane cooking – method
You will need three clean, shallow trays, one for the seasoned flour, one for the beaten egg and one for the fresh breadcrumbs. Ideally, it would help if you had an extra pair of hands when doing pane, but if you are alone, I suggest that you use one hand for the flour and beaten egg and the other for the breadcrumbs.
- First, take your food (e.g. chicken) and put it in the seasoned flour, making sure that it is well coated.
- Shake off any excess flour and pass the food into the beaten egg, again making sure it is well coated.
- Shake off any excess and finally pass the food onto the breadcrumbs, again making sure it is well coated.
- Tap the food firmly to ensure that the breadcrumbs are well attached and remove from the crumbs onto a clean plate or tray. Cover and store in the fridge until required.
If you wish for a really crisp coating to your food, repeat the process for a second time. Now you have seen about pane cooking, you can create your own great tasting recipes with delicious coatings.
