 Holy  #challah  After blackening the peppers, allow them to cool on a rack- uncovered-then simply push off the skins, remove the seeds and place in a bowl. At this point, although you can flavor the peppers with garlic, basil, etc., I prefer to leave them alone, keeping them as neutral as possible. That way, you can use them differently during the week. Keep refrigerated but allow to come close to room temperature, for best flavor.
 My son Ben's first pane di casa!!! Gorgeous!!  Parmesan crisps: finely shredded best-quality parmesan, heated in a thin, even layer in a nonstick skillet till bubbling and light golden on the bottom. Remove from heat and let settle and firm up just until you can slide a heat-proof rubber spatula underneath and turn cheese over. Put back over medium flame until golden on other side (lift with spatula to check). Let settle then remove to wire rack to cool and crisp. Break into shards and serve as salad garnish or as bar-food-snack. So delish!

Tender Greens with Pears, Apples, Grapes, Pan-Toasted Walnuts and Gorgonzola Cheese, with Grilled Chicken

If you’ve never put sweet fruit into a savory salad, I urge you to try this recipe. The contrast between the cool, crisp pears and apples with the juicy grapes and creamy cheese, all off-set by the savory grilled chicken, butter-toasted nuts and tender leafy greens, makes this salad unusually good. Any time I’ve suggested a tool, a piece of equipment, or a culinary… ... continue reading

Garlic Toasts for Crostini or Just Good Eating!

To me, this garlic toast recipe is like a favorite pair of shoes. I always pull it out when I want to feel comfortable. In addition to serving them before dinner, with cocktails, they are also a wonderful partner for a salad, a soup meal or a casual supper. When serving these toasts for cocktails, broil them about five minutes before your guests are due to arrive, since the… ... continue reading

Garlic Confit With Cracked Pepper and Herbs

This is one recipe that I prepare every week (without fail) and use it almost every day. Whole garlic cloves, still in their papery skins, simmer away, at the barest bubble, in extra-virgin olive oil that’s laced with dried red pepper flakes, cracked black peppercorns, fresh basil and crumbled dried Herbs de Provence. If your stove doesn’t have a very low simmer mode, I suggest using a “flame-tamer” to… ... continue reading
