Let simmer for 20 minutes.  Add vegetables, spices and cook until tender.  Bring to a boil and add cornstarch slurry slowly to the mixture and whisk until thickened.

Carrot Ginger Soup



To make a roux, melt the butter in a small saucepot. Slowly add flour to make a paste. Cook until incorporated. Remove from heat and set aside.  In pot, cook carrots in water, sugar and ginger. Let simmer until carrots are soft. Using a food processor or blender, puree carrot mixture until smooth.  Add heavy cream, milk and roux. Cook until soup is hot and slightly thick.

Lemon Rosemary Biscotti




Cream butter and sugar together. Add in eggs, vanilla, lemon zest, rosemary, salt, and baking powder. Add in flour one cup at a time. Pat into 2 loaves approximately 1-inch high and 2-inches wide. Bake at 325F for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and slide off the baking pan onto a cutting board. Cut loaves into 1/2-inch thick slices and place them back onto the baking pan laying on their side. Return baking pan to the oven and bake another 10 minutes or until crisp. NOTE: For orange/basil biscotti substitute orange zest and fresh chopped basil. Try other flavors and combinations.


Yield: 10 servings


2 pounds Ground Lamb, Beef or a mixture of both
½ pounds Onion, large dice
1/8 cup Rice Wine Vinegar
1/16 loaf White Bread
1/16 gallon Cream
1/16 pound Sugar (add more as needed)
¼ ounce Cinnamon (adjust as needed)
1/8 pound Almond or Pumpkin Seeds, sliced
1/16 pound Seedless Raisins
1/16 pound Golden Raisins
1/8 ounce Curry Powder (adjust as needed)


1/16 gallon Easy Eggs
1/16 gallon Heavy Cream/Milk


Heat oil and caramelize the onions. Reduce heat and add dry spices. Mix well. Deglaze with rice wine vinegar. Add meat and continue to cook until meat is cooked through.  When the meat is done, drain 90% of the grease off. Then tear the bread into small pieces and add it as well as the cream to the meat mixture.  Add the sugar and mix well. Add a little bit of water if the mix looks too dry. Then add the raisins and almonds. Re-season and cool.

In a small container, place the bobotie mixture and top with the egg custard mix. Bake in the oven at 325o until golden brown and cooked through.

3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
30 large sea scallops

Sage Crackers




Heat oven to 425. Put 4 cups flour, the baking powder, salt and sage in a large bowl; stir to mix well. Add milk and 1/2 cup olive oil. Stir until mixture forms a ball. Knead lightly about 10 times. Divide dough evenly into 16 pieces. Flatten pieces, 1 at a time, on clean counter or pastry cloth lightly dusted with flour. Roll out as thinly as possible, allowing ragged edges. Turn dough over frequently to make rolling easier. Place 2 crackers on each baking sheet. Brush lightly with some of the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool, uncovered, on a wire rack. Serve at room temperature. Best when served within 8 hours of baking, but crackers can be stored overnight in an airtight container. Place in low oven to re-crisp if necessary. To serve, tear crackers into pieces and place in a napkin-lined basket. Serve alone or with spreads or dips. Makes about 24 servings.




Quinoa Pilaf




Place quinoa in a strainer and run water over the grain to remove the excess starch. Place in 1 quart sauce pan with the water, and place over medium high heat until a simmer is reached. Reduce heat and maintain the simmer. When liquid is almost completely absorbed, add the garlic and peppers. Finish cooking until dry. Finish with the chopped herbs and pinch of salt.
