leftovers (05.10.2016)

5 Oct

prawns and whelks

Recent leftover suppers include: the remains of a potato gratin whizzed up with chicken broth and cooked red peppers for a hearty soup, the first of the autumn. Green lentils with lardons and red wine. Coriander, almond and lemon pesto, originally served over burrata (my one true love), later mixed with cream cheese for savoury croissant tartlets with salmon. More croissant dough sprinkled with cardamom sugar and twisted up following this gif for Swedish cardamom buns.

In ice cream experiments:

I’ve been following David Lebovitz’s recipes since they are consistent and delicious. So this includes his chocolate sherbet, mango sorbet and quick coconut ice cream (with cardamom in place of saffron). I will have to invest in his book. Also a success, Lucky Peach’s pecan brittle ice cream.

In food for thought:

Lucky Peach is killing it at the moment: Should I go to culinary school? and Where are the women chefs? and Power condiments for cooking vegetables.

In the New Yorker: Figs as inside-out flowers (and the reason wasps exist). In the Guardian, Syrian sweets and lost memories.

And in self-promotion:

I was flattered to provide some soundbites for an article on food illustration (the other featured blogs are stunning) and one on British women chefs in Paris, which includes many of my culinary idols.

Over on A Pocket Feast, I have a map for Marseille, a chaotic and lively city. I recommend the fresh seafood, and staying on an AirBNB boat in the harbour, as long as you don’t get seasick. And for the last days of sunshine, try and eat the 10 best ice creams in Paris.
