Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb (900 g) large new potatoes, skins on
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 7, 425°F (220°C)
  • You will need a shallow, solid roasting tin measuring 16 x 12 inches.

Directions:

Begin by measuring the oil into the roasting tin, then pop it into the oven to heat through. Wash the potatoes but don’t scrape the skins off, then cut them into cubes of roughly ½ inch (1 cm). Place them in a clean tea cloth and dry them as thoroughly as you can, then transfer them to a large plate. Remove the tin from the oven, place it over direct heat – the oil needs to be very hot – then carefully slide the potatoes straight into the hot oil. Turn them around to get a good coating of oil, sprinkling in the garlic and rosemary as you go. Return the tin to the oven and roast for 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and crisp. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Maccheese

Serves: 6

Ingredients:

  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons tomato paste
  4. 1/2 teaspoon chopped thyme
  5. 2 cups half-and-half
  6. Salt
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  8. 3 cups elbow macaroni (12 ounces)
  9. 4 ounces Gruyère, shredded
  10. 4 ounces sharp white cheddar, shredded
  11. 4 ounces imported Fontina cheese, shredded
  12. 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  13. 2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs

Directions:

  1. Preheat the broiler and position a rack 8 inches from the heat. Put a kettle of water on to boil. In a large, deep ovenproof skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until softened, 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and thyme and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the half-and-half and 2 cups of hot water and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper. Add the macaroni and cook over moderately low heat, stirring frequently, until the pasta is al dente, about 8 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup of boiling water along with the Gruyère, cheddar and Fontina. Cover and let stand off the heat for 2 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Season with pepper and stir once or twice.
  2. In a bowl, combine the Parmigiano and panko and sprinkle it over the pasta. Broil for 2 minutes or until golden. Serve.

Raspberry Squares

Posted: February 23, 2013 in Uncategorized

raspberry-bars-bINGREDIENTS:
1¼ c. all-purpose flour
⅓ c. granulated sugar + 1 tbsp.
¼ tsp. salt
10 tbsp. (1¼ sticks) unsalted butter, cubed
⅓ c. old-fashioned rolled oats
4 tbsp. pecans, chopped
2 tbsp. light brown sugar
1 tsp. corn starch
¼ c. raspberry jam
1½ c. (12 oz.) fresh raspberries, washed
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice + 1 tsp. zest

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8 X 8″ baking pan with a foil or parchment.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, ⅓ c. granulated sugar, and salt. With a pastry blender cut in the 10 tbsp. of butter until the mixture resembles wet sand. Reserve half of the mixture for the topping.
3. Sprinkle half of the mixture into the prepared pan and press into an even layer. Bake the crust until the edges begin to brown (15-17 minutes). Remove and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, combine the reserved flour mixture, oats, nuts, and brown sugar together in a medium bowl. Add the remaining 2 tbsp. butter and mix until small clumps begin to form. Set aside.
5. In a small bowl using a rubber spatula, combine the jam, raspberries, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, lemon juice and zest together.
6. Spread the berry mixture evenly over the warm crust, then sprinkle with the streusel topping. Place in oven and bake until the filling is bubbling and the topping is golden brown (24 to 26 minutes), rotating the pan halfway through baking.
7. Remove from oven and let the bars cool completely in the pan on a wire rack for about 1 hour. Remove the bars from the pan using the foil, cut into squares, and serve.
