Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Green fish soup

    • wester on May 15, 2015

      Very subtle and creamy - can easily turn bland if not seasoned aggresively.

  • Honey-glazed duck with ginger and pink grapefruit

    • DKennedy on July 14, 2015

      Honey glazed duck with ginger and pink grapefruit - This recipe is included in Books for Cooks Favorite Recipes from Books 1, 2 and 3 at page 42. It is described as a special dish for special times. I made this dish last night for dinner, substituting confit'd duck legs and serving it over a combination of iceberg lettuce and a variety of herbs. The salad is quite delicious. But the dressing, which requires caramelizing sugar as one of its steps, is a bit labor intensive for the results. I might seek out an easier dressing if I was to attempt this salad a second time.

  • Pork Stroganoff

    • ChefJacki on February 05, 2016

      Freeze the pork for 1 hour before slicing. It will let you slice more thinly. The recipe says to use a pinch of paprika at the end. Paprika is a key flavour for stroganoff. I put 2 teaspoons in once the onion was cooked.
