Pate Brisée is a classic French tart dough but it is perfect for making any kind of pie. It requires a light hand and produces a crispy and layered dough. It’s my go to recipe for tarts and pies of all kinds.

Enough dough for a double crust 23 or 24 centimeter tart or pie pan which is quite large.

Bocatelli with Tomato Sauce Anchovy, Red Pepper and Capers

OK OK I understand you’re confused – That’s not Bocatelli it’s Camponelli because that’s what I had in the cupboard tonight. I am putting this recipe up because it is truly one on my top 10 favorites of all time. I can eat this once a week and I actually have to keep it down to once a month.

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Candied Sweet Potatoes

You simply couldn’t serve Thanksgiving turkey without candied sweet potatoes or sweet potatoes of some kind. But they are good all winter long and this is a simple great recipe.

Double or triple this recipe and it’s great to serve with turkey or baked ham and goes terrifically with Swedish Christmas ham.

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?).

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.

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.
