Garlic Bread ala NYC 1970’s

Garlic Bread ala NYC 1970’s

This is the great garlic bread of my days in New York where it was served at all the really good brunch restaurants on 3rd Ave. Warm and crispy it’s a breeze to make and really garlicky (is that a word?).

Vodka Martini

Vodka Martini

Simply the worlds most sophisticated cocktail. Nothing says cocktails before dinner quite like a Vodka Martini.

Let me suggest Smirnoff Vodka or the Russian Stolichanaya also known as Stoli!  Far smoother than most others. One can drink it straight without gagging to death. A great vodka pretty much goes down like water.

Iced Tea

Iced Tea

I don’t understand why more people don’t have this in the fridge when you visit. Its cheap, fast to make and much better than anything you can get out of a bottle.

Another advantage is that you can make it with different types of tea. I like stronger tea’s like Earl Grey and English Breakfast but my partner likes green tea which is more mild.

Red Beets with Feta Cheese

Red Beets with Feta Cheese

This is another of those “it’s not really a recipe” recipe! But it tastes great. Although it takes at least and hour to roast beets once done they can be used for up to 4 days. So you can make them the day before.

New Potatoes Sauteed with Butter, Parsley & Spring Onions

New Potatoes Sauteed with Butter, Parsley & Spring Onions

This is a nice alternative to plain steamed new potatoes. Although fantastic as they are try this for a change with my recipe for Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breasts. Here in the Nordic countries potatoes are almost a religion. Small potatoes are available all year around.

Butternut Squash Soup

Creamy and buttery making this recipe is very easy and requires little attention to detail or much time. It is one of my favorite soups. Garnishes for this soup can and should be rather simple, chopped chives or thinly sliced scallion. Maybe a spoonful of finely chopped egg and parsley. But being American why not crispy chopped bacon or small cubes of ham. Another idea to make this more of a meal is to add small chicken or veal meatballs.

Cream of Asparagus Soup (cold or warm)

Cream of Asparagus Soup (cold or warm)

This is an old classic that I haven’t found much improved on during my travels. You can use the stalks of the asparagus and save the lovely green tips to decorate the soup.

If you would like, this recipe can be made using white asparagus.

Broccoli Soup

Broccoli Soup

This is a take off on a classic French cream soup.  Cream of Broccoli Soup is easy and broccoli is available almost year round and rather inexpensive. No need to sieve this before serving as they might do in a fancy restaurant, it’s good straight from the pot.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.

Canapes


I don't have a many canapes here. The ones I share are super quick, very tasty and most of all tasty. Your guests will appreciate the effort.
