159. Duck Legs and Carrots p.398

159. Duck Legs and Carrots p.398

The recipe is from Fergus “Nose To Tail” Henderson’s London restaurant, St. John.
My dining companion and I adore duck, and eat it often, so a new preparation is always exciting for us. I really like the thinking behind this recipe. It takes an underused part of the duck, and brings out its absolute best. Incidentally [...]

136. Mushroom Barley Soup p.113

136. Mushroom Barley Soup p.113

The recipe
This soup suffers from a serious branding issue. If it had been billed as barely soupy barley stew, with extra barley, some carrots, and hardly any mushrooms at all, I would have known what I was getting into. The blurb for the recipe talks about all the contrasting mushroom flavours and blah blah blah, [...]

113. Rosemary Focaccia p.606

113. Rosemary Focaccia p.606

The recipe is the same as this one, but linked recipe forgets to list the water and salt for the dough in the ingredient list (they are in the recipe description).
I should start off by saying that this was absolutely delicious. It didn’t rely on rare ingredients or novel taste experiences to get there. It [...]

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 [...]

93. Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Herbs, and Garlic p.502

93. Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Herbs, and Garlic p.502

The recipe
Spring lamb simply prepared is one of the best rewards I can think of for having suffered through a long winter. Spring lamb comes from a younger animal than lamb without an adjective. Generally spring lamb is 3-5 months old, but it can be called lamb right up until a year old. As [...]

56. Rosemary Walnuts p.5

56. Rosemary Walnuts p.5

No recipe this time, sorry.
This is the second recipe in the book, with only Candied Walnuts coming before it. It’s a very strong start. It combines my favorite things, simple, delicious, and affordable. It’s a shame that the recipe isn’t available online, but the proportions aren’t that important anyway. All you need to do is [...]

38. Roasted Carrots and Parsnips with Herbs p.529

38. Roasted Carrots and Parsnips with Herbs p.529

the recipe
I nip, you nip, we all nip for parsnips!
I love them mashed, boiled, grilled, broiled, sauteed, and particularly roasted. They behave almost exactly like carrots, they look like carrots, they taste quite a bit like carrots, and yet… the carrot is a superstar of the vegetable world, and the poor parsnip is drinking alone [...]

29. Pork Chops With Onion Marmalade p.480

29. Pork Chops With Onion Marmalade p.480

the recipe
I made these for a bunch of hungry hungry boys during a trip to Toronto. It was a nice change from pizza and bar food. Our dinner was a quiet moment in the midst of a rowdy weekend. We sipped wine, listened to light jazz, and enjoyed some classic comfort food. Pork chops, green [...]
