88. Jicama and Cucumber Chili Spears p.27

The recipe
Jicama isn’t the easiest thing to find in Montreal. I went to every grocery store, fruiterie, and Latin themed shop I could think of. In the end I tracked one down at a Mexican grocery store about a block from my place. I had no idea it was there. For all the effort that [...]

54. Herbed Spaetzle p.241

No recipe for this one.
This recipe was a bit of a disaster. As disaster’s go it tasted quite good, but the result bore little resemblance to the recipe description. The Book says
“The tiny drop-style German dumplings called spaetzle are juged by their lightness, and these practically take flight”

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 [...]
