197. Balsamic-Roasted Pears with Pepper and Honey p.809

The recipe
This is how dessert should be, simple, elegant, and not too heavy. I’m rarely in the mood for a slice of cake right after dinner, and the yen for creamy or frozen treats is even more infrequent. However, a cheese plate is always a welcome addition to a meal. I associate this kind of [...]

110. Moroccan-Style Roast Cornish Hens with Vegetables p.392

The recipe
This was my first experiment with Cornish hens, and I think I’m in love. I watched an episode of Freaks and Geeks the other night. In one scene the mother roasts Cornish hens, and serves them to her skeptical family, who use the hens as puppets for a dance routine, and complain that they [...]

106. Whipped Horseradish Cream p.893

Unfortunately there’s no recipe online for this one.
Beef and horseradish is one of those great combinations, the fiery sinus clearing slap-in-the-face of horseradish works really well with the succulent richness of beef. It’s not much good with other meats, but beef and horseradish is a love story for the ages. In this preparation horseradish is [...]

12. Lamb Tagine With Prunes Apricots and Vegetables p. 510

12. Lamb Tagine With Prunes Apricots and Vegetables p. 510

the recipe
I’m not the hugest fan of meats in sweet sauces, and this certainly was sweet. Between the dried prunes, apricots, squash, sweet potato and honey it came close to cloying. There was a huge amount going on here, lamb isn’t a subtle flavour to begin with, and the all fruits and spices brought it [...]
