Home Made Christmas and Le Creuset

We're just a few days away from December and for some reason this year feels as if the holidays have passed me by. I feel like I've missed something. Perhaps it has to do with the halls being decked right after Halloween, sales happening earlier than ever or being so very busy, but whatever the reason, I am determined to immerse myself in holiday cheer if it kills me.

One sure-fire way to ignite my holiday spirit is to take some time and sit by the fireplace to look through holiday baking magazines and cookbooks. This year there are several special holiday cookbooks. Today, I will tell you about one and in the next few days, I'll be back with promotions on the others. 


Home Made Christmas
 is the latest in the Home Made series of books by Yvette van Boven, Amsterdam's answer to Nigella Lawson. These titles are photographed beautifully by Yvette's husband, Oof Vershuren, and are filled with inspiration that will draw all levels of cooks into the kitchen. 

Home Made Christmas feels like a hug and made its way onto my Best Books of 2018. The warmth from the tray of Brioche and red fruit swirls with ricotta glaze or the Squash, feta and sage pull-apart bread is comforting. Yvette transforms carrots and a few other ingredients into a gorgeous Carrot tatin with goat cheese that leaves me wallowing in shame for ever serving simple roasted carrots. Time spent in this book has Scrooge exorcised from my system especially after one glance at the Cream puff tree with white chocolate. I am eagerly anticipating free time to get into the kitchen to begin holiday baking - hopefully before December 25th. 

 

I chose to make the Leek and potato soup in my new Dutch oven from Le Creuset. I left out the scallops from this recipe and they were not missed. The soup is hearty, flavorful, and dare I use the word "comforting" again. I was left with a quart of this soup in the fridge and ended up using it to enhance my gravy when I made salisbury steak for my older son who was visiting.

If you read my Gift Guide for 2018, you will note that I am hoping Santa brings me the red tartan from Le Creuset. I didn't have to wait, Santa came early and delivered the white plaid version and better yet - Le Creuset wants to give one of our members one of these gorgeous pots for their kitchen. 

Le Creuset has some wonderful specials on their website some of which qualify for free shipping. I love the deep Dutch oven for frying and this beautiful set (in many colors) is packaged with a trivet as well. 

 

Leek & Potato Crème Soup with Fried Scallops & Parsley Oil
Add this recipe to your Bookshelf (click the blue +Bookshelf button).

Serves 4

For the soup

  • 3 leeks, rinsed and sliced
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup (250 ml) white wine
  • 2 cups (500 ml) vegetable stock
  • ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon (200 ml) crème fraîche

For the parsley oil

  • 7 tablespoons (100 ml) mild olive oil
  • 1 small bunch parsley, chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the scallops

  • 8 large sea scallops
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) clarified butter

For serving

  • 3 tablespoons crème fraîche

Prepare

Sauté the leeks in the oil until they're soft, then add the garlic, onion, pota­toes, curry powder, and nutmeg and sauté everything briefly. Season with salt and pepper and douse with the wine. Cook over high heat until the wine is reduced, then pour in the stock.

Allow the soup to simmer for 30 minutes. Puree until smooth in a blender or with a hand blender. Stir in the crème fraîche. Set aside.

Make the parsley oil: Put the oil and parsley in the cleaned blender and process for 1 minute, or until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve and season with salt and pepper.

Make

Score the scallops lightly in a diagonal crosshatch pattern.

Heat the clarified butter in a skillet, add the scallops, and cook on both sides until golden brown and just about cooked through.

Meanwhile, reheat the soup in another pan and season with salt and/or pepper, if you wish.

Pour a shallow layer of soup into four deep plates. Make a swirl with a small spoonful of crème fraîche. Place two scallops on top and drizzle with some parsley oil.

    I love all the HOMEMADE books. And am absolutely in love with the tartan Le Creuset.

  • bevb  on  11/28/2018 at 6:19 PM

    The Champagne Bowl sounds excellent.

  • Alleycat  on  11/28/2018 at 6:34 PM

    The round wide Dutch oven or the big Dutch oven would be a workhorse for me. The tartan plaid would be a showpiece when we host Christmas Eve for our families.

    That very first pic in the index is gorgeous! I'd make the Brioche & red fruit swirls with ricotta glaze!

    A 7 1/2 qt round dutch oven in flame has been on my wishlist for many years! :)

    I'm very drawn to the saucier with a lid, but I miss a red Le Creuset kettle that was lost in a move....To make? Trifle with salty caramel, cheesecake cream & chew brownies .

    I am in dire need of a new tea kettle, so a stainless steel Le Creuset teapot would be fabulous.

    Savory French toast

    I'm here for the wild mushroom soup, and perhaps going wild with a deep fried pickle! If you put le creuset in the same sentence as anything cast iron, i'm a fan.... so any such product (dutch ovens are my mistress) are welcome under my proverbial tree! ( or, under my menorah as the case may be).

    Ooh cranberry margaritas!
