111. Wild Rice and Toasted Almond Pilaf p.262

111. Wild Rice and Toasted Almond Pilaf p.262

The recipe
I messed this dish up quite badly, so badly I’m not sure it’s fair to count it. The main ingredient is 2 cups of wild rice, without further specification. I’m not a big rice eater, and I’d never cooked wild rice before. I went to the health food store and got two cups of [...]

92. Baked Eggs and Mushrooms in Ham Cups p.634

92. Baked Eggs and Mushrooms in Ham Cups p.634

The recipe
The eggs are really pretty, taste great, and come in manageable individual sized portions. It’s not really practical to do fried eggs for a crowd, you end up spending all your time at the stove, and the toast gets cold. The solution is often scrambled, or poached eggs. Scrambled are nice, but a bit [...]

76. Cilantro Walnut Filling p.420

76. Cilantro Walnut Filling p.420

The Recipe
This is the filling for Twenty-First Century Beef Wellington. The filling for Beef Wellington in the 19th and 20th centuries was a duxelles and paté de foie. It’s a very French preparation which was renamed and popularized by the British. This twenty-first century version has a lot more in common with Argentina than the [...]

73. Sherried Mushroom Empanaditas p.38

73. Sherried Mushroom Empanaditas p.38

The recipe is a combination of this one for full sized Sherried Mushroom Empanadas, and yesterday’s tuna empanaditas. Of course the full sized empanada makes way too much filling, so you’d need to cut it down.
I made these for the same party as the tuna empanaditas. They use the same puff pastry wrapping, and have [...]

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 [...]

60. Prosciutto- and Parmesan-Stuffed Mushrooms p.27

60. Prosciutto- and Parmesan-Stuffed Mushrooms p.27

No recipe, too bad.
These were an excellent appetizer. I brought them to a dinner party and they disappeared just like that. They’re mushroom caps stuffed with the cooked down mushroom stems, garlic, onion, bread crumbs, prosciutto, Parmesan, a useless dash of parsley, and an egg to hold it together. After the caps are filled [...]
