186. Lillie’s North Carolina Chopped Barbecue p.479

186. Lillie's North Carolina Chopped Barbecue p.479

I can’t find a copy of this recipe online.
Barbecue is one of those things I would dearly love to know a whole lot more about. But living in Montreal means that I’m unlikely to stumble across BBQ competitions, and there are very few pit masters looking to take on an apprentice. My lack of a [...]

183. Georgian Pork Stew p.485

183. Georgian Pork Stew p.485

The recipe
The Georgian Salsa called ajika, which I blogged about last time totally blew me away. This pork stew uses a lot of the same flavours, and integrates the ajika as an important ingredient, so predictably, I like it a lot. The stew uses some unusual ingredients including summer savory, corriander seeds, fenugreek, and dried [...]

164. Beef Bourguignon p.440

164. Beef Bourguignon p.440

The recipe
I grew up on boeuf bourguignon, we could be guaranteed to have it at least once a month during the winter. Since a braised dish like this is better a day or two after it’s cooked, my mom would usually make it on a Sunday, and it would sit on the chilly garage floor [...]

159. Duck Legs and Carrots p.398

159. Duck Legs and Carrots p.398

The recipe is from Fergus “Nose To Tail” Henderson’s London restaurant, St. John.
My dining companion and I adore duck, and eat it often, so a new preparation is always exciting for us. I really like the thinking behind this recipe. It takes an underused part of the duck, and brings out its absolute best. Incidentally [...]

145. Cider Braised Pork Shoulder with Caramelized Onions p.476

145. Cider Braised Pork Shoulder with Caramelized Onions p.476

The recipe
I love to braise. It’s almost worth suffering through the interminable and bitter winter of Montreal to do it. Of course you could braise all year round if you really wanted to, but somehow simmering meat for hours in the middle of July just doesn’t sound like a good idea. Braised meats are delicious, [...]

98. Chicken Fricassee p.372

98. Chicken Fricassee p.372

No recipe this time.
This was a fairly successful and simple recipe. It’s real comfort food, chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce served with noodles. Like most comfort food it’s fatty and a bit bland. The preparation was as simple as you could wish for. Break a chicken down into serving size pieces, and brown them [...]

64. Coq au Vin p.368

64. Coq au Vin p.368

No recipe for this one.
Coq au Vin is such a classic it’s practically drowning in preconception and expectation. This recipe doesn’t throw any wild experiments or out of the play book ingredients in, but it tries to simplify the process a bit too much. The biggest twist in this recipe is that it calls for [...]

55. Riesling Braised Sauerkraut and Apples p.575

55. Riesling Braised Sauerkraut and Apples p.575

The Recipe
This is kind of a funny recipe. It takes the “and the kitchen sink” approach toward sauerkraut. This version starts with packaged sauerkraut, then braises is with two kinds of apples, onions, shallots, slab bacon, Riesling, chicken stock, thyme, juniper berries, and a bay leaf. It was already getting a bit busy flavour-wise at [...]
