SUMMER FOOD STAR

When I was exploring the glories of the Pacific Palisades Farmers Market last Sunday, I was struck by the beauty of the mounds of organic Heirloom tomatoes and tomatoes on the vine as well as jewel-like cherry tomatoes. Van Gogh with his sunflowers or Matisse with his water lilies could not find a more spectacular subject matter. For me, summer is fresh corn right from the fields and tomatoes every which way. So I was thrilled the other day to run across a Gazpacho recipe from the great chef Thomas Keller. A...

YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY TOMATO!

Who cares how you pronounce it, tomatoes are one of summer’s greatest treasures! Gorgeous heirloom tomatoes fill the markets and for a few short months you can savor one of nature’s prime pleasures. When I was a kid, my grandmother had a huge garden where she grew lettuce, cucumbers, zucchini. My most fun days were the ones we spent building the trellis’ for the tomatoes. I couldn’t wait for them to grow and shed their delicious fruit. Yes, in case you didn’t know, tomatoes are technically a fruit and...

Glenfiddich Chocolate Mousse

This dessert is a favorite of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Although the Queen is not a big whiskey drinker, Glenfiddich—“valley of the deer” in Gaelic—whiskey from the Scottish highlands adds a warm aftertaste. The coffee intensifies the flavor. Serves 6 6 ounces semisweet chocolate 1 teaspoon instant coffee 1 tablespoon boiling water 5 eggs separated 2 tablespoons Glenfiddich whiskey 11/4 cups heavy cream 1 cup heavy cream, whipped for garnish 2 ounces grated semisweet chocolate, for...

Petit Pois a la Francais

An elegant and fun way to serve green peas. At one time, the English ruled a large part of France. Somewhere along the way, they probably snitched this recipe from the French kings royal kitchens. However it worked its way into the Royal families dining room, it is a delicious way to get your peas down when you have two young Princes learning to eat their vegetables! Serves 6 6 slices bacon, diced 1 large onion, thinly sliced ¼ head iceberg lettuce, shredded 1½ pound frozen green peas 1 teaspoon salt 3...

Basmati Rice Pilaf

This pilaf is a great complimentary dish with the Pojarski. Again, it reflects the food influences on the Royal family from their far-reaching British Empire days. Prince Phillips uncle, Lord Mountbatten, was the last Viceroy of India where this dish originated. Serves 4 3-5 tablespoons butter 1 large onion chopped ½ to ¾ cup slivered almonds 1 cup Basmati rice 1 cup finely chopped carrots ½ cup currants ¼ teaspoon cinnamon 1½ teaspoons finely minced orange rind Black pepper 1/8 teaspoon red pepper...
