141. Roasted Red Pepper and Eggplant Dip p.10

141. Roasted Red Pepper and Eggplant Dip p.10

The recipe
I served this dip along with the tapenade from the other day, and was similarly underwhelmed. This dip had a bland, mushy flavour, that didn’t really do much for anyone. I mentioned that the tapenade was overpowering, and this helped thin it out. Unfortunately, “dilutes tapenade” is one of the better things I have [...]

Everyone, or at least everyone who cares about food, has a stockpile of formative food memories, often centred on parents and grandparents doing things the way they’d always been done, or traveling experiences where the zeitgeist of your food universe is overturned by a brand new culture. The list of culinary luminaries who trace [...]

46. Eggplant Caviar p.11

46. Eggplant Caviar p.11

No recipe this time, but honestly you’re not missing all that much.
I think this came out to be less than the sum of it’s parts. Essentially it’s broiled eggplant, sweated onions, garlic, and green pepper mixed with fresh tomatoes, lemon juice, sugar, salt, and pepper. All good stuff up to this point, but it all [...]

21. Olive and Eggplant Spread p.11

21. Olive and Eggplant Spread p.11

the recipe
This was a great appetizer, it’s basically a tapenade cut with roasted eggplant. I love eggplant, and I love olives, together they’re even better. Eggplant dips naturally tend to turn out a kind of grey-brown that’s not the most inviting. The olives helped it turn a delightful shade of purple with a nice lustre. [...]

17. Grilled Eggplant Sandwiches With Lemon Aioli, Feta, and Mint p.182

17. Grilled Eggplant Sandwiches With Lemon Aioli, Feta, and Mint p.182

the recipe
I sextupled this recipes and brought two sheet pans full to a picnic in the parc. They were devoured within seconds. I’m not sure if this was because they were scrumptious, or if my audience of hungry students wasn’t too discerning. I though these were OK, without being anything special. I think my expectations [...]
