Kale Chips II

Kale chips

I’ve made kale chips before and to be honest, I wasn’t too thrilled with them. I put them in the oven, toasted and salted them, and out came these little wisps that were no longer green. And they didn’t taste very good either. But, I come armed today with a new recipe for kale chips – the […]

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus


I love wrapping things in prosciutto, and when it comes to asparagus, there’s more than one way to do it. Well actually, there’s only one way to wrap prosciutto around asparagus. It’s your basic “drop it on and roll it up” technique, but there’s more than one way to enjoy prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. You can leave both the asparagus and prosciutto raw, you […]

Harvard Beets


Harvard beets are a funny thing. They’re kind of like pickled beets, but instead of being simmered in a pickling liquid and served cold, they’re quickly run through a warm gastrique and served hot.

But sometimes, recipes come to me a little more indirectly, such as this dish that I heard about […]

Fire Roasted Tomatoes


Tomatoes are one of my favourite foods. Whether you give them to me as a sauce, an appetizer, or just in a bowl, I’ll gladly eat them all. Roasting tomatoes over fire makes them even sweeter and juicier, and gives them a hint of smokiness that is perfect in the middle of summertime, or any time. […]

Greek Rice Pilaf


I’m so confused as to what rice pilaf actually is. I heard a fellow line cook say once that it was “any rice that has other stuff in it”, in which Chef promptly kicked them out of the kitchen. (Gosh I’m happy he didn’t ask me.) Once the sad line cook was allowed back into the kitchen, Chef explained […]
