151. Deviled Eggs p.27

The recipe
The next few recipes are from a cocktail party we held in honour of a friend’s thesis defense. We invited her to celebrate her accomplishment, and be called Doctor a lot, at an intimate soirée at our place. I was planning a menu around her favourite dishes, and counting on eight to ten people. [...]

135. Green Mayonnaise p.887

135. Green Mayonnaise p.887

The recipe
This mayo is meant to accompany the Poached Salmon in Aspic. I wasn’t quite sure why an aspic covered fish, served with aspic on the side, needed a mayonnaise as well. My guests didn’t eat much of this mayo with the salmon, possibly because I didn’t make it obvious enough that they were meant [...]

125. Chicken with Cornmeal Dumplings p.373

125. Chicken with Cornmeal Dumplings p.373

The recipe
I had The Book for a while before I started The Project, and this was one of the recipes I used regularly before The Book and I got serious. Making it again emphasized how much The Project has changed my cooking style. The biggest difference is that I actually read the recipe this time [...]

102. Spaghetti with Handfuls of Herbs p.204

102. Spaghetti with Handfuls of Herbs p.204

I couldn’t find a recipe for this online, but this is more a concept than a specific set of instructions anyway. The idea is to toss spaghetti with extra virgin olive oil, butter, minced shallots, and any and all herbs growing in the garden. The pasta is then sprinkled with bread crumbs which you’ve toasted [...]

86. Roasted Striped Bass with Chive and Sour Cream Sauce p.305

86. Roasted Striped Bass with Chive and Sour Cream Sauce p.305

The recipe. The Book doesn’t call for garlic chive sprouts though.
Finally fish! That one lonely fish dish has been an embarrassment for too long. I hated looking at the stats page and seeing the Fish and Shellfish section averaging just one mushroom. This was a much better dish, and I’m delighted to add it.
The [...]

54. Herbed Spaetzle p.241

54. Herbed Spaetzle p.241

No recipe for this one.
This recipe was a bit of a disaster. As disaster’s go it tasted quite good, but the result bore little resemblance to the recipe description. The Book says
“The tiny drop-style German dumplings called spaetzle are juged by their lightness, and these practically take flight”
My efforts yielded large, dense, and doughy [...]
