  • White gazpacho

    • fprincess on July 19, 2011

      This is wonderful. The combination of the white gazpacho made from the almonds and flavored with garlic (use good quality stale bread as you can really taste the bread in the soup), with the red gazpacho garnish, is very elegant and absolutely delicious! http://tartinestotikis.wordpress.com/2013/08/22/more-chilled-soups/

    • mseers on October 24, 2011

      White Gazpacho 225 2 lb raw almonds, 2 cloves garlic, 4 1/2 in slices country bread, 6 c water, 1/2 t salt, 1 c olive oil, 1/4 c sherry vinegar, 1/4 c lemon juice Red gazpacho garnish: 2 c cherry tomatoes chopped, 2 c red grapes chopped, 1 cucumber chopped, 2T olive oil, 1 T sherry vinegar, 1/4 t salt, ground pepper, 1/4 c chopped mint Boil almonds and garlic 2 min.

  • Le tourin

    • fprincess on July 18, 2012

      I was looking for a way to use a bunch of vegetables from my CSA which included collard greens, carrots and onions. I decided to make the Tourin, a rustic soup with torn pieces of stale bread, served with an egg, fried or poached (I opted for a poached egg Arzack-style). It was very comforting and the egg was a nice touch as it thickened the soup. I used homemade chicken broth and I blanched the collard greens before adding them to the rest of the vegetables.

  • Lemon bars on brown butter shortbread

    • slowfoodie on November 15, 2010

      This is our families new go-to recipe for lemon bars.

  • Brioche bread pudding

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      This is a simple and quick bread pudding. I served it with the caramel sauce from the book and added blueberries and tart cherries to the sauce. It was fantastic and gone in just minutes at a holiday party. The caramel sauce and the eggy custard was a great combination. Next time, I'll probably bake this with some of the fruit in the pudding itself rather than just adding it on top. I made this the day before I served it. I kept the caramel sauce separate and added it just before re-heating in the oven. It turned out just fine that way.

  • Quiche

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      This quiche has spoiled me for any other. I love the tangy flavor from the addition of the creme fraiche. It's adaptable to the addition almost any type of vegetable as it comes into season, but I'm partial to chard. When I'm in a rush, I make a quick version without a crust in a deep pie dish.

  • Clafoutis

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      The season for tart cherries is way too short, so short that I often eat them all plain. But, this recipe is great for a party and the presentation is beautiful. I often buy bags and bags of frozen cherries at the farmers market and I love to pull them out mid-winter to make this lovely treat. It's a blast of summer when you bite into those cherries.

  • Shortbread

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      These bars are very assuming at first glance. Try them once and you will be hooked. They are simple to make and are a go to recipe when I'm tight on time. They are buttery with great texture.

    • Melanie on December 18, 2011

      I made this for my Christmas cookie plate. Tasted so good, use top quality butter. Good size for small nibbles with coffee but you may want to slice larger.

    • GoldenLeica on April 20, 2013

      These are fabulous! The authors add "kitchen notes" for every recipe, including this one.. These notes are their secrets for success.

  • Almond rochers

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      This is one of my favorites and a regular that I turn to when I have extra egg whites from ice cream making. My preference is to substitute hazel nuts for the almonds.

  • Chocolate friands

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      I made these little beauties and paired them with strawberry ice cream for a class when I was in baking school. I can't remember the assignment--something for plated desserts probably--but I do remember these. I'm not a huge chocolate fan so these are the perfect size to me, packing in great chocolate flavor in just a couple of bites. As noted above, go ahead and use the good chocolate for these.

  • Gougères

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      I’ve had my eye on this recipe for a while and I finally made them yesterday for Thanksgiving despite my usual rule not to make something for the first time on a holiday. I made them early in the day and re-heated/crisped them in the oven just before serving, which worked just fine. The basic recipe was delicious, but I’m also interested in the additions of caramelized onions or duxelles suggested in the notes. These savory little bites were one of the hits on the table and it was tough to get a second helping. Everyone asked for more and insisted they become a new tradition.

  • Sweet tart dough

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      This is a basic tart dough and the one that I turn to most often. It's virtually fool proof and can easily be scaled up or down depending up on your needs (or room in your freezer to save some for later). I tend to find myself following the suggestion of using the egg wash on the partially baked shells and it works well. Rhubarb was finally available at the market this weekend so this was filled with an Orangette recipe for a Rhubarb Meringue Tart--also fabulous!

  • Caramel

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      I'm a big caramel fan so this won't be surprising. I loved this basic sauce. It is easy to make and holds for a long time (a month) in the fridge. I used it on the Bread Pudding with the addition of some fruit, but I can imagine it would be good on ice cream or any variety of other desserts. The golden color and the consistency makes it a good choice for finishing a plain or fancy dessert.

  • Candied zest

    • cespitler on November 01, 2012

      Yes, I know the process for making candied zest or peel is not that difficult. It's just that in a moment of panic after I purchased 15lbs of blood oranges, I couldn't bear the idea of making jam and then tossing all of the beautiful peel. It was the middle of winter in the midwest and I knew I had to keep as much fresh citrus around as I could. I needed a quick reference for the process, I turned to Tartine first, and it was there to refresh my memory and to get me through all of that candied blood orange peel.

  • Basic country bread

    • mseers on October 24, 2011

      Basic Method 48 1) Leaven: night before, mix 1 T starter with 200g warm water, 100g whole wheat flour, 100g flour 2) Mix leaven with water. 3) Then add rest of dough ingredients without salt. Rest 25-40 min, which allows the protein and starch to absorb water and then relax into a cohesive mass. 4) Bulk fermentation: Add salt and more water. Fold the dough on top of itself, transfer to a container. Ferment 3-4 hours. 5) Turns (during bulk fermentation, instead of kneading). Dip hand in water, grab underside of dough, stretch up and fold over rest of dough, repeat two or three times. During first 2 hours of bulk ferment, give dough a turn every half hour. During third hour, turn more gently to avoid degassing. By the end of the third hour, the dough should feel aerated and soft. 20-30% increase in volume. Extend fermentation period if necessary. 6) Cut dough in half, shape into a boule.

    • mseers on October 24, 2011

      7) Bench rest 30 min. 8) Final shaping. Flip so underside is on top. Fold third up and over middle third. Stretch dough horizontally to the right and fold thid right third over the center. Stretch dough left and fold left third over centre. Stretch top third over centre. Stretch bottom third over centre. Shape boule. 9) Make a 50/50 mixture of rice flour and white flour. Line banneton with it. Place dough into banneton, final rise 3-4 hours. 10) Preheat oven at 500 with dutch oven inside. 11) Dust surface of dough with rice flour mixture. Carefully place loaf in dutch oven. 12) Score with a simple square 13) Cover and place in oven. Reduce heat to 450, bake 20 min. 14) Remove lid. Colour of crust should be pale and shiny. Continue to bake until deeply caramelized, 20-25 min.
