Turkey & Mushroom Stuffed Leeks

Our leek crop this year is looking very nice, in spite of the fact that leek moths showed up for the first time in the late summer. One day they were looking magnificent, and the next they started to look chewed, wilted, and tatty. Mr. Ferdzy dumped impressive quantities of diatomaceous earth over them a couple of times and they …

Basque Chicken Terrine

Yes, it’s basically a chicken meatloaf!  It did not work out quite as I hoped, but the problem was mainly one of texture; I don’t believe I chopped my chicken enough. So, be sure to chop the chicken fairly finely. It was certainly very flavourful and we enjoyed it very much. We have arrived at a pivot in the seasons. …

Turkey Sorrel Rolls

These were lovely. Apparently there are stuffed sorrel rolls in Turkish and Balkan cooking, but it’s a slightly different variety that is probably sturdier. The French sorrel leaves which I am growing were a bit delicate. Still, they held together well enough with gentle handling. Turkey went well with the mild flavours of the vegetables. Serve these with rice, or …

Sausage, Rutabaga, & Apple Pie

You are unlikely to get any this early though, if you don’t have them in your garden. Never mind, they are on their way. This is usually made with pork …

Gomel Style Cutlets

In my Russian cutlet research wanderings, I came across these Gomel Style cutlets. Gomel is a city in Belarus, about 200 kilometres north of Kiev. These are not nearly as well known as the cutlets of Kiev, but I have to say I liked them a lot. Traditionally they seem to be made with very thinly pounded pork scallops, but …

Turkey or Chicken Cutlets Cordon Bleu

I came up with the idea for these thinking they would be easier than classic Chicken Cordon Bleu, what with not having to mess about with getting the chicken evenly pounded thin in order to stuff it. (I’m also having a bit of an obsession with Russian-style chopped cutlets at the moment, so there’s that too.) The answer is maybe; …

The “Hot Brown” – Kentucky’s Favorite Bourbon Absorbent

As I joked about in the intro, for something to be called a “Hot Brown,” and still become so wildly popular, is a true testament to just how amazingly delicious this really is.  Invented at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, to help late night partygoers keep going, this hot turkey gratin may be my all-time favorite, fork and knife …
