Mushroom Chicken Pie

Mushroom Chicken Pie

I hate mushrooms. The flavor is fine, but the texture grosses me out. Wait, no, I only like expensive mushrooms. They have a different and much nicer texture. Morels, chanterelles, yum! Wait, no, I also like mushrooms that have been finely chopped and sautéed with onions and/or shallots. That fixes up the texture, too. Point […]

Lazy, Rustic, Haphazard, and Amazing Sour Cherry Pies

Lazy, Rustic, Haphazard, and Amazing Sour Cherry Pies

I’ve gotten seriously lazy with my sour cherry pies. I make at least half a dozen every year, or my father sulks. It’s just one of those things. The tree is ready in mid-June, so everyone gathers together to pick, pit, barbecue, and eat. I’ve learned to make the crust dough in advance at home […]

Saffron Duck Pot Pie

Saffron Duck Pot Pie

Here is a meat pie to warm and satisfy you, now that winter has come and I am waiting on the edge of my seat for the first real snowstorm of the year. Loosely inspired by Moroccan basteeya, this pot pie marries a rich and savory meaty filling with traditionally sweet spices, and you can […]

Rosemary Currant Shortbread with Cumin Ginger Apples

Rosemary Currant Shortbread with Cumin Ginger Apples

When Rose and I got together a few days after our apple picking excursion, we decided to experiment with some of the apples. The rosemary currant shortbread is her adaptation of a shortbread recipe she found on Epicurious. Back when we were dating, she and I made rosemary chocolate truffles together; a love for rosemary […]

Apricot Marzipan Tartlets

Apricot Marzipan Tartlets

I just love the way that apricot in the center is peaking up his little head over the expanse of crust like a prairie dog going up on his hind legs to see the world outside his den. This recipe was inspired by a photo of rustic apricot marzipan tartlets I came across in a […]

Grapefruit Almond Tart

Grapefruit Almond Tart

Imagine, if you will: A rich, buttery, almond-based tart crust. A thick, granular layer of creamy grapefruit almond curd. Slices of fresh pink grapefruit, sweeter, pulp bursting with juice. The crunch of a thin layer of caramelized sugar. The warmth of the crust, fresh from the oven. Curd and grapefruit, cool from the fridge. The […]

Sour Cherry Pie (Old Version)

Sour Cherry Pie (Old Version)

My father planted a sour cherry tree by the side of the house a few years back, and every year he insists that I make him a sour cherry pie. The deal has always been that my brother picks the cherries and I pit and bake the cherries. The tree has grown enormously in the […]

Garlic Scape Tartlets

Garlic Scape Tartlets

The tart dough I used here was actually developed by my friend Scott Lefton, who showed me the recipe and encouraged me to go forth and play with it. First, I used it with brie and sauteed leeks for a variant of Bron‘s leek and brie tartlets. The flavors combined so well, a slow rolling […]

Pear and Basil Tart

Pear and Basil Tart

My partner, Dave, and I joined the Park Slope Food Co-op as soon as we moved to the neighborhood. Last Sunday, we finally did our first work shift there. I desperately wanted to do something physical, since I spend so much of my time at the court sitting at a desk and writing. More office […]

Freeform Caramel Prawn Pies

Freeform Caramel Prawn Pies

Yes, I know, I know, even my savories tend to be sweet. To be honest, I made these a few weeks ago, and am only now getting around to posting about them. We finally unpacked the kitchen at the new apartment, though, but we got so caught up in making and eating our first meal […]

Banana Caramel Tart

Banana Caramel Tart

The original recipe for this tart in The Union Square Cafe Cookbook calls for more butter, more sugar, and a higher temperature for the initial baking than what I have laid out below. After fussing with it a bit, though, this is what I came up with. It’s a wonderful confluence of textures: the tart […]
