Chopped Liver & Onions

Despite knowing nothing of chopped liver and onions at all and despite my complete childhood distaste for liver, I really do like it prepared this way now.

Floating Island (“île flottante”)

Once you get the easy basics of this Floating Islands down I encourage you to adapt it to make your own. I do it with a splash of bourbon. What will you do?

by

Avocado Pops

These avocado pops (or palletas) adapted from Fany Gerson's recipe are a perfect summer afternoon snack. A bit of cayenne pepper actually cools you further.

Salted Caramel Ice Cream Profiterole

It was when I was drifting about in my daydreams that I thought that I could make something delicious using the caramels and profiteroles.

by

Gin Rickey Maurin Cocktail

I picked up a bottle of Maurin Quina at the store when I saw its devilish green label stare back at me from the shelf. How could I resist it? I knew that the "quina" part in its moniker comes from same quinine notes that tonic comes from so I knew it would be a natural for gin.

Iced Caffe Latte

Barista quality Iced Caffe Latte is easily made at home if you remember to save up some espresso in the refrigerator. My Bad Influence showed me how.

Boeuf à la Ficelle (Beef on a String)

Boeuf à la Ficelle wouldn't be half as fun were it not for the chance to bring out your kitchen twine and truss up that filet mignon before poaching.

Fudgy Cherry Port Brownies

Will you just look at these? I am feel like I am selling out several of my strongly held principles this minute by posting a Fudgy Cherry Port Brownies post on Valentines Day. Why in god's name am I doing this when my personal disdain for the day is rather well known?

by

Paris Brest Pastry

These creamy sweet desserts such as eclairs and other puffed dough balls filled with whipped cream have never been a particular favorite of mine. They remind me of overconfident Frenchmen who are obnoxious yet still win you over with their charm.

Double Dark Chocolate Cake with Chocolate

This cake harks back to my early years when my mother would make this to take to every clambake we ever went to on the Maine shore. It's one of my favorites.

Coconut Curd

In the fridge were two jars of coconut curd that he wouldn't go near because they weren't yet labelled (I made them in a hurry). I was once served a coconut curd in New Zealand at Breckenridge Lodge. The curd was made by the owner and chef Malcolm Redmond and was so wonderfully good that it stuck in my mind for years to come.

Raspberry Basil Drinking Vinegar

I have done a terrible job selling you on this concept but drinking vinegars are not a new concept in themselves. Plenty of people drink a little apple cider vinegar for health reasons and others enjoy the taste of kombucha which is a fermented tea that tastes very similar to this. The first time I tried kombucha I thought that it had fermented and gone off. After that I became quickly addicted to its refreshing properties and looked forward to it every morning. I had the same exact reaction to drinking vinegar.

Strawberry & Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart

They were an impromptu recipe made up of a elements from a few different recipes. The tart shell was based on a sweet tart pastry recipe by Annabel Langbein which was so short and buttery it was almost like a melting moment cookie. The chocolate salted caramel filling was based on one of the elements of the Quay eight texture chocolate tart-feel free to make a regular chocolate ganache but I do love the extra element of the salted caramel to it. I filled these with the ganache late at night and topped them with the strawberries the next morning. These are one of those pushy recipes that I urge you to make. I promise that people will ask you which patisserie you bought them from because they are that lusciously good. And if you are having difficulty locating beautiful strawberries just use a bit of gold leaf or a few grains of salt to decorate.

Vietnamese Grilled Pork Patty Skewers (Nem

Who doesn’t like food on a stick? Nobody, I know. I made Vietnamese grilled pork patties on skewers and served them with a pickled vegetable salad with fresh herbs and two wonderful sauces and some rice. I ate like I was a skinny person.

by

Sweet Summer Popsicles

I actually didn't intend to blog these but they ended up being so gloriously coloured and delicious that I just had to share them with you. They're also ludicrously simple, just one more step further than a fruit salad and of course feel free to omit the Pimms if you are serving them to children. And if you include the alcohol, well things are that much merrier that way!

DIY Almond Milk in Two Minutes

One thing that they'e been drinking for years are milk alternatives. One popular alternative to soy or rice milk is almond milk. I didn't realise how simple and quick it was to make yourself until a Dear Reader Wendy shared with me the recipe that she has been using for 20 years. All it requires is grinding up almonds with water.

Moules Mariniere - Taking the Bait!

The classic Moules Mariniere. This classic preparation is best enjoyed in classic locales like a Paris Bistro or a Greek island. Make it at home if you can!

by

Raw Vegan Chocolate Energy Balls

Sometimes when they bake cakes, they can double as a weapons as the health conscious Elliotts remove the sugar and butter from standard cake recipes but I was really surprised at how good these were. After my first bliss ball I had to ask for the recipe. It was just the right amount of sweetness and they weren't dry at all. It comes from being honed for over 30 years. Forget buying them from health food stores for $2 each, you can make them fresh for a fraction of the cost.

by

Pumpkin Stuffed with Fontina, Italian Saus

Nobody would be surprised should you conclude from the last several month here that I own only one cookbook.  Ms. Greenspan's tour de force does seem to occupy a disproportionate amount of my culinary bandwidth here these days doesn't it?

by

The Amazing Watermelon Cake!

I first saw this amazing watermelon cake on my friend Christie's blog Fig & Cherry.

by

Bird Seed Bread

What was even more interesting was the method of making this seeded loaf. It's so easy and involves stirring things together and letting them set.

The winner on the day were the chocolate, coconut and walnut balls. Think Almond Joy but with walnuts.
