Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Parmesan roasted asparagus

    • Yildiz100 on November 11, 2017

      Most of the parm ends up on the pan. Would be just as good and less wasteful grated on to the plated asparagus. Will not repeat. Also not sure I love the combo of parm and asp.

  • Tuna with tomatoes (Thon à la tomate)

    • Yildiz100 on September 27, 2018

      Very good. Subbed lemon zest for preserved lemon, and this contributed a nice flavor. Omitted the optional capers. Made a half recipe of the book's chermoula and used the whole thing in this, though some of the chermoula did not make it out of the marinading bowl. The six year old thought this looked scary but ended up loving it, Serve over couscous.

  • Pasta ribbons with pesto, green beans, and potatoes (Trenette conpesto alla Genovese)

    • Yildiz100 on February 07, 2018

      I used a different recipe for the pesto but I used this recipe as a guide for the ratio of pasta to sauce, potatoes and green beans. I thought it was a little low on potatoes and green beans. Reduced the pasta to 300 grams and left the potatoes and beans the same and it was about right.

  • Roast duck breast with apple purée

    • wkhull on February 18, 2019

      Page 64. I decided to make a less fatty sauce, with good results. Substituted 3 T butter and 1 T cornstarch for the 1/2 C butter. We were craving something sweet potato to accompany this dish.
