179. Lemon Garlic Lamb Chops with Yogurt Sauce p.504

179. Lemon Garlic Lamb Chops with Yogurt Sauce p.504

The recipe
The world is clearly changing, and The Book is starting to get a little bit dated. It’s only 4 years old, but a few things have changed in that time. I mostly notice it with specialty ingredients, which The Book suggests I’ll have to get by mail-order, but that are available at my local [...]

178. French Pea Soup – Potage-Saint-Germain p.96

178. French Pea Soup - Potage-Saint-Germain p.96

The recipe
I was really excited to try this soup. I went looking for a pea soup recipe in The Book, expecting to find a hearty split pea version with ham hocks, instead I got this spring vegetable centric Potage-Saint-Germain. It wasn’t really what I was looking for that night, and the idea of mint in [...]

152. Herbed Lima Bean Hummus p.15

152. Herbed Lima Bean Hummus p.15

The recipe
Hummus is a staple of my diet, and although I rarely make them, I quite like lima beans, so, I figured this lima bean hummus was a good bet. I’ve been doing some serious damage to the bean spreads in the book, and this was one of the last ones that really appealed to [...]

114. Foolproof Grilled Chicken p.363

114. Foolproof Grilled Chicken p.363

The recipe
The blurb before the recipe says that the secret to perfect grilled chicken is to brine it then toss it in a vinaigrette once it’s done. I’ve never really had a problem with my non-brined, non-dressed grilled chicken, but this version does have its charms. Brining makes things taste good by saturating them with [...]

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 [...]

6. Roasted Cherry Tomatoes With Mint p. 585

6. Roasted Cherry Tomatoes With Mint p. 585

the recipe
The name pretty much says it all. Tomatoes tossed in oil, salt, and pepper, roasted till bubbling and a bit blackened, topped with fresh mint. This was pretty good, but I’m not sure that roasting improved them. I liked that they took on some colour, but why mess with summer fresh cherry tomatoes? They’re [...]
