Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken livers with pasta, lemon & garlic

    • wester on October 21, 2015

      Easy and tasty. Very mild, not a pronounced liver flavor.

  • Carrot salad

    • amoule on November 15, 2016

      Interesting flavor, but I probably used too much orange flower water. I followed the recipe exactly, but quadrupled it for a crowd. I'd suggest using small or half garlic cloves; a whole garlic clove is a lot for 2 carrots. The paprika and chile powder muddy the color of the grated carrots. If I make this again I'll replace both of those with a pinch of cayenne -- there's plenty of flavor with the cumin, cinnamon, honey, lemon, and orange flower water.

      So this recipe is in a book trying to teach novice cooks to cook, so the directions need to be more explicit than usual. Which is why I blame the book for not telling me that these needed to be stuffed with COOKED rice. I ended up having to take the stuffing out to cook and eating the zucchini chopped in the sauce with the stuffing.

      The fruit, mousse, coulis and the light sponge marry beautifully - simple but definitely one of my favourite summer desserts.
