Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Arugula, pear, and walnut salad

    • Zosia on January 05, 2016

      The garlic in the dressing was a little too assertive for me - perhaps shallots next time - otherwise the dressing went nicely with sweet ripe pears and peppery arugula.

  • Bulgur pilaf with cumin and chickpeas

    • consortiumlibrary on July 25, 2014

      I very much like the technique used for making this pilaf - the bulgur is chewy and doesn't have even a hint of the sogginess and pasty-ness that overtakes too many bulgur pilafs. While I loved the technique, and will definitely use it again, the dish itself is too bland for our palates. It calls for 1 tsp. cumin seeds; next time I'd probably use 1 1/2 - 2 tsp. The recipe calls for 1 Tbsp. olive oil; this isn't enough - I used 3 Tbsp. and more would've been fine. It needs at least 1 tsp. salt, and maybe a little more. The recipe calls for 1 small onion (whatever that means). I used 2 cups cut in 1/2" dice; next time I'd double that amount. It cried out for something herbal. I made garlic yogurt with fresh mint as topping (a must! - tho tzatziki would also be good) , but I also think next time I'll stir in some fresh parsley at the end.

      We ate the leftovers as a cold salad. To the leftovers, I added 3 minced cloves garlic, 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, 3 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar, 1/4 minced mint. Much better than the original for our palates, though the original recipe is an excellent base for personal tweaks.

  • Stir-fried tofu and bok choy with chili sauce

    • Zosia on November 06, 2017

      Simple but tasty stir-fry that called for only the most basic of Asian pantry items. The sambal oelek was a great addition, boosting the flavour and providing some heat.

  • Apricot clafouti

    • Zosia on June 12, 2014

      Wonderful flavour but I had execution and textural issues: only 1 1/4lbs of the prepared fruit fit into the recommended pan size; there was an unappealing wet layer of exuded fruit juice at the bottom; the texture was rubbery. There are easy fixes for these problems: place the apricot halves on top of the batter so the juices released during baking have an opportunity to mix into it, and reduce the amount of flour (by half?) to improve the texture. Baking time was 45 minutes in my oven.
