Dessert, not dinner but...



Sourdough cranberry orange rolls. It's just the KAF cranberry orange rolls recipe with the addition of half a cup of sourdough starter (because I needed to feed it and can't stand to throw any away). Also, used orange marmalade and dried cranberries for the filling.

My shaping sucks but they are tasty.

Agreed, one of the best parts of vacation is spending the day cooking. It's so much more satisfying when you can take time to enjoy the process instead of the usual "OH gently caress IT'S 7:00 PM AND I HAVEN'T STARTED MAKING DINNER YET!"

Bawk Bawk THERAPY CRANES Baaawk!




Haven't posted in a good long while, but I had some time on my hands for Christmas dinner (which all civilized people have on the evening of the 24th - so as to avoid lunch and the dreaded turkey).

I usually like to do something different each Christmas; two years ago it was all Thomas Keller's French Laundry, last year was more American-style(-ish) with loads of different things on the table, and this year I thought I'd do some really old-school, dinosaur-rear end French cooking.

All dishes are courtesy of the wonderful French Kitchen cookbook by Michel Roux Jr - Credit where credit's due!

Starter: Oeufs Poche Carême

Invented by the Godfather in the depths of history. Trimmed and turned artichoke heart with salmon/chive/brandy/tabasco/mustard mayonnaise, poached egg, and smoked salmon



Soup: Chestnut and Apple Soup

Pretty straightforward, a classic of Corsican cooking - quite light and refreshing due to no cream or butter. The chestnuts provide the smooth finish themselves.



Fish Course: Filets de Sole Véronique

I don't think I've ever actually seen this on a menu, but it's a true classic of French cooking. Poached dover sole (holy gently caress that was expensive) with a reduced and mounted sauce, peeled white grapes and a few veggies for colour.



Meat Course: Rack of Roe Deer Fillet, Fresh and Pureed Chanterelle Mushroom and fried Roseval Potato

Not a classic French dish, but I love love love serving game at Christmas and a friend slipped me a rack of roe deer, which I took off the bone (for easier cooking) and served with mushrooms. Because you have to. I'd urge everyone everywhere not to cook loving turkey but any kind of game.



Cheese Course

Forgot to take the picture, but consisted of:
[list]
[*] Raw Milk Brie
[*] Testun de Barolo - aged goat/cow cheese with Barolo grape pressings on the outside
[*] Buche de Pilat - soft goat's cheese, very mild
[*] Cabrales, spicy Spanish blue cheese
[*] Some very soft & strong French cheese that you need to scoop with a spoon - can't remember the name.

Dessert: Baba au Calvados

A play on the super-ancient and traditional Baba au Rum, it's roughly the same thing but you make an apple-based syrup instead. Served with chantilly cream, mashed apples and an apple glaze.

Also, I kinda whiffed how much they would expand in the oven, which is why it looks like a giant mushroom



Bonus for making it to the end of this post: Christmas Tree

Because real men use real candles, and not this horrid electric poo poo.




Merry Christmas, everyone!

I followed the recipe pretty much step by step except for doing it in 30 hours rather than 36 because I started late. The pic is a ~1kg portion that I cut from a larger piece, 3kg total.

It turned out great, the skin was super crispy and all that, though I could have done a better job distributing the herb rub more evenly. Also, for some reason I was expecting most of the fat to have rendered out during cooking but that's definitely not the case.

Bacon and Leek Quiche for lunch. Friggin' delicious.



Rolled Turkey roast for dinner, cooked by me. No pictures, as it was delicious, not pretty.

My wife's five-star Pavlova for dessert. As is only good and right.

Decided to make dinner for my girlfriend as I'm off for several days and she had to go back to work today.



Nothing fancy but it was delicious. Roast chicken breast topped with herbed bread crumbs, and sauteéd zucchini with garlic and tarragon. I don't cook with meat much, so this was something of a rarity. Also made a fresh loaf of bread, but I've posted enough pictures of boules already.

How are you folks doing your green beans? They look roasted it perhaps pan fried (especially with bacon and onion in the works).

idk how DnF did hers, but I blanched and chilled mine, fried up bacon, fried onions in bacon fat, deglazed the pan with a glug of white wine and a big knob of cold butter to emulsify, tossed the beans into heat, served.

I didn't plan ahead, so I could not make poppy bagels (i.e., the best bagels) but they are really good. A little time consuming, but less so than bread, and very good.

I had cooked some pancetta and red bell pepper in a cast iron with red pepper until the pancetta was crispy, then I put all that into my mac and tossed the beans straight into the pan on med-high. When they started to brown I cut the heat, put in a couple TBs of water and covered, steamed a few minutes til tender. I would have steamed in white wine but I was out. It just needed a pinch of salt at the end.
