Barbunya Zeytinyagli

As soon as I started looking for Turkish recipes on line, this one came up again and again and again. Funny, we didn’t see it when we were there! I guess it’s considered “home cooking” and not restaurant fare. Most of the recipes were quite similar but some called for this, and some called for that. I looked at a …

Celeriac Zeytinyagli

We saw quite a few of these “Zeytinyaglis” when we were in Turkey; that is to say, vegetables cooked with olive oil and served warm to cool. This one is excellent for late winter or early spring, since the only things it calls for that are not available are the peas – but you can use frozen – and the …

Carrot & Tomato Soup with Garlic Croutons

By itself, this is a very fast and simple soup. The garlic croutons do a lot to lift it out of the ordinary, so do make them. They are really not hard either. I used cheese bread for my croutons which in the face of the garlic was a bit subtle, but in fact did come through and was very …

Rumbledethumps

So what, you may ask, are – is? – Rumbledethumps? It’s simple, really: it’s another one of those oddly-named British dishes consisting mostly of potatoes and cabbage, in this case from Scotland. The name is presumed to come from the sound of everything being mashed up together. This is a bit fancier and more complex than champ or colcannon, requiring …

Red Flannel Salad

Red Flannel Hash is a fine old tradition, but I thought I would make a salad of it. On the way I wandered through a number of Russian salad recipes involving beets and potatoes, and took counsel from them. I was really very pleased with the final result. It is almost – almost – worth the hassle of cooking the …

Endive & Carrot Salad with Hazelnuts & Cranberries

Well, what is there to say about this? Other than that it’s lovely to have a crisp green salad in the middle of winter, which can definitely be a bit salad deficient if you aren’t careful. I mean, if I’m not careful. You know. Mr. Ferdzy liked this better than most things I make with Belgian endive (not a fave …

Spring Roll Salad with Chicken

It seems I’ve gotten a bit out of the habit of making salads, so I am trying to do more of them this winter, which is never the easiest time for salads but it can be done. It helps that I’ve been really quite impressed with the greenhouse lettuce I’ve been getting this winter. There is a lot more variety …

Sweet Potato, Lentil, & Feta Salad

I really hate making other peoples’ recipes. Sure I will take inspiration from things I see out there, but then I want to get my own mitts all over it, and tweak it this way and that way, and make it mine. Of course I have changed this but that has more with my inability to follow the bloody directions …

Carrot, Apple, & Belgian Endive Salad

There are some strong flavours in this elaborated version of the good old Waldorf salad. I lost the celery (it is long over, alas) and replaced it with carrot and Belgian endive. With the cranberries and nuts these make for a pretty intense interplay between sweet and bitter elements. I found I needed to add more salt than I would …
