Soda Bread With Walnuts and Raisins

This whole wheat soda bread is a variation on an Irish classic called “spotty dog”, typically made with currants and white flour. Golden walnuts and succulent raisins find their perfect home in this soda bread. Ingredients 375 grams (3 cups) whole wheat flour 125 grams (1 cup) unbleached flour (all-purpose) 10 grams (2 teaspoons) baking…

Mississippi Roast

A fan of mom bloggers and Pinterest aficionados, this Mississippi Roast is traditionally made by putting a chuck roast in a slow cooker, simmering under a stick of butter, ranch dressing mix packet, gravy mix and some pepperoncini. And there’s nothing wrong with cooking it this way, but there’s no difficulty in replacing the packet…

Buckwheat and Amaranth Muffins

Most muffins you’ll find at cafes and coffee shops are more akin to oversized cupcakes – too sweet, and too big. However, muffins need not be cloying. All it takes is a little natural sweetener to make them a treat. They also need not be calorie heavy sweets. These recipes will bring you a whole…

Whole-Wheat Herbal Scones

Similar in savory nature to American biscuits, these luxurious herbal scones have a nutty dimension that comes from the whole-wheat flour. A great accompaniment to soups, salads, and stews. Ingredients 150 grams (about 1 1/4 cups) whole-wheat flour 100 grams (about 3/4 cup) flour (unbleached all-purpose) 10 grams (2 teaspoons) baking powder 5 grams (1/2…

Fried Chicken

The chicken thighs are cooked in two separate stages in this recipe, that was intended to be executed on a propane burner outdoors. The chicken is first fried to beautifully brown it, as well as render the fat from the skin. Next, it’s placed in a low oven to cook all the way through. The…

Arugula Salad With La Tur

This salad takes the common, run of the mill blue cheese salad dressing, and improves upon it – a soft, milkier flavor and a more unctuous consistency make this the perfect thing to drizzle over fresh figs, baby arugula and some perfectly crisped prosciutto. Ingredients 3 to 4 slices prosciutto di Parma 4 ounces La…

Thin and Crispy Cornbread

In many a glossy food magazine, you’ll see cornbread, served directly from the skillet in thick, golden wedges. These look nothing like April McGreger’s Mississippi grandmother’s thin & crispy cornbread. The crunch to tender ratio is closer to crunch, making it ideal for soaking up delicious broths like potlikker. Baked best in a well seasoned…

Buckwheat Blini

Many savory toppings are a perfect accompaniment to blini, such as caviar or smoked fish. For simple elegance, look no further than drained yoghurt, salmon roe and smoked salmon (½ pound per batch of blini will suffice.) Ingredients 1 teaspoon active dry yeast ½ teaspoon sugar 2 tablespoons lukewarm water 1 cup and an additional…

Peach Buttermilk Soup

Similar to the Indian milkshake-like drink lassi, I enjoy eating this delectable creamy soup for breakfast. Make sure that the peaches are juicy and ripe. Ingredients 3 pounds ripe peaches 2 to 3 tablespoons mild flavored honey (like acacia or clover) (to taste) 2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed (to taste) 3 cups…
