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.

Korean Bean Sprout Salad

Korean Bean Sprout Salad

I have a bean sprout problem. Or rather, I used to have a bean sprout problem. I don’t think any stir-fry is complete without the addition of a couple handfuls. But once that’s done, I’m left with an entire bag of bean sprouts that I don’t know what to do with, and that will turn bad in just a couple of days. […]

Creamy Parsnip Puree

Parsnip Puree

Purees are very simple. So simple in fact, that they can often look like baby food. But one whiff of them while they’re cooking or one small taste will quickly tell you that purees are full of flavour. And not only can they be a nice garnish on the plate, they can also be a nice […]
