Granola was a weekly production item for me at the Inn and my batches were huge with 40+ guests for breakfast each morning. We served it with milk or yogurt, sprinkled it in Lemon Curd Trifles and used it as a crunchy coating on French Toast.

Fish en Papilotte

No Comments

Cooking “en Papilotte” is an easy and nutritious way to prepare fish, seafood and vegetables. If your looking for nutritious, you may want to omit the optional beurre blanc from the recipe. The French translation for “en Papilotte” is “in paper” and refers to the parchment pouch that encases the vegetables and fish. The pouch is baked in a hot oven and the contents steam in their own moisture, creating a tender and flavorful dish that is hard to beat. Clean up is a breeze.

Almond-Ricotta Semifreddo

No Comments

Semifreddo, in Italian, translates to “partially frozen.” It has a lighter texture, and is more like a frozen mousse than ice cream due to the incorporation of lots of air in its preparation. I make several versions of this classical Italian dessert by adding different ingredients for various flavor and texture combinations. Some of my favorite include: Pistachio, Limoncello, Raspberry, Chocolate-Hazelnut and of course this one made with Ricotta and Almond praline.
