Roasted Chicken with Thyme Demi-Glace and Celery Root

This is the first time I’ve used Celery Root in a recipe before. So easy and a very nice change. The recipe did call for Salsify which our market did not have but the Celery Root was listed as a substitute. It peels easily, quick lemon wash, then a boil. Worked great in the dish.… Continue reading Roasted Chicken with Thyme Demi-Glace and Celery Root

Bengal Seafood Salad

How can you not like this title? Does a title bias a taste? In this case…I really don’t know…but what I do know, I haven’t had anything like this in a really long time. Sure it may be 70’s Americana, but I’ll tell you what, I’ll take a trip back to that time any day… Continue reading Bengal Seafood Salad

French Laundry…you’re 1-2 with your Salad Dressings

The Staff Dressing is stellar…the Caraway Seed Vinaigrette on the other hand…sorta sucks and one I’d never do again. So lets go back to the Staff Dressing. It’s a bitchin Balsamic Dijon which I’m pretty sure that a San Diego pizza restaurant lifted and used it as one of their signature salads with grilled chicken… Continue reading French Laundry…you’re 1-2 with your Salad Dressings

Rolled Pork Chops in Lingonberry Sauce with Poached Pears and Sage Spatzel.

Long title, easy and fun recipe. The real kicker is that it rocks. We all loved it and everything paired perfectly together. Spatzel is one of our favorites and always a rare treat. The first time I did it I used a colander to make the dough drop into the boiling water. It was a… Continue reading Rolled Pork Chops in Lingonberry Sauce with Poached Pears and Sage Spatzel.

Japanese protein burgers with French carrots.

This is one of those bar jokes. A Frenchman and a person from Japan 🙂 go into an American bar…what do they cook? They knock out a great burger and round it out properly. Carrots, Bun-less Hamburger, and rice. I’m sure it will go great with beer, whiskey, wine, and vodka. Tequila though? Not sure… Continue reading Japanese protein burgers with French carrots.

Chicken Breast and Vinegar Sauce alla Romana with Cauliflower Soup

Cauliflower was on the docket. This huge head needed to be used and since it was so large, two recipes were the call. About half for a soup, the other half in a gratin with parmesan. Interesting to note that parmesan was used both in the soup and the gratin, with two entirely different effects.… Continue reading Chicken Breast and Vinegar Sauce alla Romana with Cauliflower Soup

Pork Roast stuffed with Spinach and Prosciutto

It’s cool to see that we have done a recipe before but have no recollection about it. It looks like we said this was awesome back in 2013. It’s still just as good in 2018 and with a lot more recipes under our belt. I wouldn’t urge anyone to immediately go out and make it,… Continue reading Pork Roast stuffed with Spinach and Prosciutto
