Brie Soufflé

 

Ingredients:

1 lb.                 unripe brie, rind removed

6 slices             good quality fresh white bread, crusts removed

8 Tbs.               sweet butter (1 stick), at room temperature

1 tsp.                salt

dash                 Tabasco sauce

4                      eggs

1½ cups            whole milk

 

Directions:  Butter a 1½ or 2 quart soufflé or baking dish.  Butter one side of the bread and cut each slice in thirds.  Whisk together the eggs, milk, Tabasco, and salt.  Break, or cut up brie into small pieces. (I found a similar version of this recipe in the Silver Palate Cookbook, and they suggested grating the cheese.  I say good luck trying to grate brie.  However, the smaller the pieces of cheese the better).  Arrange half the bread on the bottom of the baking dish.  Cover with half the brie.  Repeat.  Pour egg mixture over cheese and bread.  Let it sit 30 minutes.  Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes, until it's golden and bubbly.  Speaking of golden and bubbly, we had a great bottle of champagne with this dish…mercy!

 

 

Caramelized Onion And Garlic Tart

 

Ingredients:

Crust:

4½ ounces        unbleached all-purpose flour

4½ ounces        cake flour

4 ounces           frozen unsalted butter, cut into cubes

2 ounces           chilled solid vegetable shortening

3 ounces           ice water

 

Filling:

2 tablespoons    olive oil

2½ pounds        onions, chopped

10 large garlic cloves, chopped

1 large              fresh thyme sprig, or ¼ teaspoon dried thyme

1                      bay leaf

½ cup               dry white wine

1 cup                Gruyere cheese (about 4 ounces ), shredded

 

Directions:

1.      For crust: Combine flour, butter and shortening in a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse the on/off switch until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Blend in the water one tablespoon at a time until the dough forms moist clumps. Gather the dough in a ball, flatten it into a disk, and wrap it in plastic. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Dough can be prepared 4 days ahead. Let it soften slightly before continuing.)

2.      Preheat the oven to 400. Roll out dough on a floured surface (I use a pastry cloth) to a 12-inch round. Roll up dough on rolling pin, and transfer it to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Press dough into pan and trim the edges. Poke some holes in the dough with a fork. Freeze for 15 minutes.

3.      Line crust with foil and fill with beans or pie weights. Bake until set. Remove foil and weights. Continue baking until crust is golden brown, piercing with a fork if crust bubbles, about 15 minutes longer. Transfer to a rack, and cool completely.

4.      For filling: Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, thyme and bay leaf and cook until onions brown and mixture is jam-like, stirring occasionally, about 50 minutes. Add wine; stir until all liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cool. (Crust and filling can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover separately; let stand at room temperature.)

5.      Preheat oven to 400. Remove thyme sprig and bay leaf from filling. Stir in the cheese. Transfer filling to crust. Bake until filling is brown, about 20 minutes. Remove pan sides from tart. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes

(Cheesecake Factory)


Ingredients:

Salsa Verde:

2                      tomatillos, chopped (remove papery skin)

1 x 4 oz. can     mild green chilies

1                      green onion

2 Tsp.               fresh cilantro

1¼ tsp.             granulated sugar

¼ tsp.               ground cumin

¼ tsp.               salt

To taste            pinch ground black pepper


Southwestern Sauce:

½ cup               mayonnaise

1 tsp.                white vinegar

1 tsp.                water

¾ tsp.               granulated sugar

½ tsp.               chili powder

¼ tsp.               paprika

pinch                cayenne pepper

pinch                onion powder

dash                 salt

dash                 garlic powder

 

Tomato Salsa:

1                      medium tomato

1 Tbs.               minced Spanish onion

1 Tbs.               fresh cilantro, minced

¼ tsp.               lime juice

½                     small fresh jalapeno, minced

dash                 salt

dash                 ground black pepper

 

Cakes:

1½ cups            frozen sweet corn

½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened

3 tbsp               granulated sugar

pinch                salt

½ cup               corn masa (corn flour)

2 Tbs.               all-purpose flour

 

Garnish:

¼ cup               sour cream

½                     avocado, chopped

2 Tbs.               fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

 

Directions:

1.      Prepare salsa verde by combining all ingredients (tomatillos, green chilies, green onion, cilantro, sugar, cumin, salt, and pepper) in a food processor on high speed. Cover and chill.

2.      Prepare tomato salsa by combining all ingredients (diced tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, salt, and pepper) in a small bowl. Cover and chill.

3.      Prepare southwestern sauce by combining all ingredients (mayonnaise, vinegar, water, sugar, chili powder, paprika, cayenne, onion powder, salt, and garlic powder) in a small bowl. Cover and chill.

 

4.      Preheat oven to 400°F.

 

5.      Prepare the tamale cakes by chopping 1 cup of the frozen corn in a food processor until it's coarsely pureed. Combine pureed corn with softened butter, sugar, and salt. Blend well with electric mixer until smooth.

 

6.      Add masa and flour and blend well. Mix in the remaining ½ cup of frozen corn kernels by hand.

 

7.      Measure ½ cup portions of the mixture and form it into 3" wide patties with your hands. Arrange the patties on a baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cakes are browned on the bottom. Carefully flip all cakes with a spatula and bake for an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until other side is browned.

 

8.      While the cakes are baking, spoon a portion of the salsa verde onto a plate or platter (you may want to heat up your plate in the oven for a bit to help warm the sauce). You'll need to use enough salsa verde to coat the entire plate -- it should be about ¼" deep. Arrange the tamale cakes side-by-side on the salsa verde. Spoon a dollop of sour cream onto each tamale cake. Drizzle the southwestern sauce over the cakes in a crisscross pattern (use a squirt bottle if you've got one). Spoon some tomato salsa over the cakes, followed by the chopped avocado. Finish off the plate by sprinkling the coarsely chopped cilantro leaves over the top.  Serves 4.

1 cup                water

2 large              fresh sprigs rosemary or 1 teaspoon dry

2 sprigs             fresh thyme

1 (10 oz.) bag    frozen peas

 

Directions: 

1.      Preheat oven to 300°.  Wrap herbs in cheesecloth and tie with a piece of string or place them in a small muslin bag.  Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Brown lamb and transfer to a plate.  Add carrots, onions and celery to Dutch oven and sauté until soft and starting to brown.  Add wine and boil until all liquid evaporates.  Add tomato paste and garlic.  Cook for a minute (be careful not to burn the tomato paste).  Add lamb, stock, water, and herbs.  Cover and bake for about 1½ hours or until the meat is tender.

¼ tsp.               ground black pepper

Directions: 

1.      Heat up 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cover each chicken breast with plastic wrap then use a mallet to flatten the chicken to about ¼" thick. Sprinkle each fillet with salt and pepper.  

2.      Sauté the chicken fillets for 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until the chicken has browned just a bit. Remove chicken fillets from the pan and wrap them together in foil to keep the fillets warm while you make the sauce.  

3.      Don't clean the pan. You want all that cooked-on goodness to stay in the skillet to help make the sauce.

4.      With the heat still on medium, add two tbsp of oil to the skillet.  Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté for about two minutes. Add the Madeira wine, beef stock, butter and pepper. Bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or until sauce has reduce to about ¼ of its original volume. When the sauce is done it will have thickened and turned a dark brown color.

5.      As the sauce is simmering, bring a medium saucepan filled about halfway with water to a boil. Add a little salt to the water. Toss the asparagus into the water and boil for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of your asparagus spears. Drop the asparagus in a bowl of ice water to halt the cooking. The asparagus should be slightly tender when done, not mushy.

6.      Set oven to broil. Prepare the dish by arranging the cooked chicken fillets on a baking pan. Cross two asparagus spears over each fillet, then cover each with a slice of mozzarella cheese.

7.      Broil the fillets for 3 to 4 minutes or until light brown spots begin to appear on the cheese.
To serve, arrange two chicken breasts on each plate, then spoon 3 or 4 tbsp of Madeira sauce over the chicken.

½ teaspoon       dried parsley, crumbled
2 tablespoons    chopped peanuts
2                      green onions, julienned

 

Directions: 

1.      Curry Sauce:  Heat the chili oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the oil is hot add onion, garlic, and ginger. Sauté about 30 seconds then add the chicken broth. Add the spices (cumin, coriander, paprika, salt, black pepper, and turmeric) and stir well.  Simmer sauce for 5 minutes on low heat. Add Coconut milk. Bring mixture back to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken.  Add the julienned carrots and zucchini, and the frozen peas. Simmer mixture for 10 minutes or until carrots become tender.

2.      Peanut Sauce: Combine peanut butter, water, sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, and chili oil in saucepan over medium heat. Heat just until mixture begins to bubble, then cover pan and remove from the heat.

3.      Toast Coconut: Preheat oven to 300°. Spread coconut in thin layer on a baking sheet. Place coconut in oven. Stir coconut every5-10 minutes to insure it browns evenly. Watch carefully. After 25 to 30 minutes the coconut should be light brown. Remove from oven cool.

Rich Chicken Stock

 

Rich chicken stock comes from using the bony parts of chickens that have been browned.  I save the bones and drippings from roasted chickens in my freezer until I have enough to make stock.  You can also get wings and backs from the butcher and roast them at 400° with carrots, onions and celery for about 1 to 1½ hours until everything has a nice brown color to it.  Place bones and drippings, or wings, backs and vegetables in a stock pot and cover with water.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat, partially cover the pot, and simmer (a few bubbles rising to the top) on very low heat for several hours or overnight.  Strain stock, and refrigerate.  Remove fat that hardens on top, then bring to a boil and simmer until it reduces to half.  I make this in large batches and freeze it.  It makes the best gravy and sauces you'll ever taste.

To taste            salt and pepper

 

Potato Filling:

3 Tbs.               butter

1 (8 ounce)       container sour cream

3 cups              all-purpose flour

¼ tsp.               salt

1 Tbs.               baking powder

 

Directions

  1. To prepare the sauerkraut filling, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the drained sauerkraut and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then remove to a plate to cool.

  2. For the mashed potato filling, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir into the mashed potatoes, and season with salt and white pepper.

  3. To make the dough, beat together the eggs and sour cream until smooth. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder; stir into the sour cream mixture until dough comes together.

Ultimate Macaroni and Cheese
Makes 6 servings

 

Choose a medium-sized pasta with grooves, twists and/or curves that will hold a maximum of the cheese sauce. Varieties such as macaroni, gemelli, radiatore, rotini, shells or fusilli are ideal. You can skip the onion/bay leaf/peppercorn infusion for the béchamel sauce to save time; it adds a subtle layer of savory flavor to the dish.

 

Ingredients:

2½ cups (9 oz.)             dry pasta

2½ cups            whole milk

1 slice               onion

1                      bay leaf

10                    whole black peppercorns

4 Tbs.               unsalted butter

¼ cup               all-purpose flour

                        Salt and freshly ground black pepper

8 oz.                 sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 2 ½ cups)

3 oz.                 Fontana cheese, grated (about 1 cup)

3 oz.                 Emmenthal, Gruyère or similar Swiss-type cheese, grated (about 1 cup)

½ cup               fresh bread crumbs

 

Directions: 

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously butter a 2-quart baking dish.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Stir in the pasta and boil until it is about half-cooked, tender on the surface with a distinct bite still in the center, about 5 minutes. Drain well, rinse with cold water and set aside, tossing from time to time as it cools to avoid sticking.

3. Put the milk in a small saucepan with the onion slice, bay leaf and peppercorns. Bring just to a low boil over medium heat, and then take the pan from the heat and let sit to infuse for 10 to 15 minutes. (If skipping the aromatics, simply warm the milk.)

4. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook, whisking constantly, until it foams up and has a very slight toasty smell (it should not brown), 1 to 2 minutes. Strain the warm milk into the pan and whisk to blend. Continue to cook the sauce, whisking often, until it thickens, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and gradually whisk in the cheeses until fully melted. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper, then add the pasta and stir to fully coat all the pasta with the cheese sauce.

5. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and sprinkle the bread crumbs evenly over. Set the dish on the oven rack and lay a piece of foil on the rack below to catch any drips. Bake until the macaroni and cheese is bubbling hot and the top is nicely browned, about 40 minutes. Let sit for about 15 minutes before serving.

 

 

German Red Cabbage

 (Karen Ronne Tupek)

 

Ingredients:

5 slices             bacon, chopped

1lg.                  onion, chopped

1head               red cabbage (about 2 lbs), cored and sliced  (I use 3 medium jars)

2 lg. (or 3 sm.) tart apples, cored and sliced thinly - no need to peel

2 tsp.                flour

¼ cup               vinegar

¼ cup               brown sugar

1½ cup             dry red wine

½ tsp.               orange zest

To taste            salt & pepper

Dashes and pinches of:   (* I use these spices, generously.  But not too much - you don't want to overpower the cabbage.)

* whole cloves

* allspice

* nutmeg

* cinnamon

caraway

thyme

bay leaf

 

 Directions: 

1.      Sauté the bacon in the bottom of a Dutch oven or stewpot. Add onion and cook until limp. Add cabbage and turn in the fat. Core and thinly slice apples and add them. Dust with the flour and turn and stir until incorporated and flour has cooked a little.

2.      Add the vinegar, sugar, 1½ cup wine, orange zest and whatever spices you're in the mood for. To help you out, inhale the aroma of the cooking cabbage, and then take a sniff of your spice. Add whatever seems to go together. But not too much.

3.      Cover and cook slowly till tender and flavors are well combined. I usually either do this in a 300º oven for a couple hours or, if I'm going to be out of the house all day, a crock pot. Before serving, taste for salt & pepper, and if flavor is too strong, add a little hot water.

MISCELLANEOUS:

 

Mango Chutney

 

Ingredients:

4 lbs.                fresh mangos, ripe but not too soft, peeled

3 Tbs.               vegetable oil

1 tsp.                chili flakes

2½ cups            medium dice red onion

¼ cup               minced fresh ginger

1 cup                small dice red bell pepper

8 oz.                 unsweetened pineapple juice

4 oz.                 cider vinegar

½ cup               brown sugar

1½ Tbs.            curry powder

                        Kosher salt and fresh ground white pepper

½ cup               raisins or golden raisins

½ cup               toasted, roughly chopped macadamia (or almonds) nuts

 

Directions

1.      Cut the mango flesh away from the pit. The pit is shaped similar to an obelisk, so you'll end up with 2 large pieces and 2 smaller pieces from each mango. Roughly chop the flesh.

2.      In a sauté pan heat the oil and add the chili flakes. Be careful not to burn the chile, just toast to flavor the oil. Add the onions and sweat until soft. Add the ginger and bell pepper and saute for 1 to 2 minutes. Finally add the mango and cook for 1 more minute.

3.      In a separate bowl, combine the pineapple juice, vinegar, sugar, and curry powder. Add this mixture to the pan. Stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a bare simmer and reduce for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper. Add the raisins and the nuts and transfer to another container over an ice bath. I used a mild yellow curry powder, but if you want it hotter go for red.
