Dec 11,2007

1/2 c Wild rice
1 1/3 c -Water; cold
1 ts Chicken bouillon
2 Bacon slice
1/2 c Mushrooms; sliced
2 tb Green onion
Thyme; dried
Parsley; snipped

Pour cold rice over rice in strainer and lift rice with fingers (to remove
any impurities). Combine rice and 1 1/3 cups water and bouillon. Bring to a
boil, reduce heat. Cover and simmer 60 minutes.* Meanwhile cook bacon
partially and add mushrooms, green onion and thyme. Cook till bacon is
crisp and mushrooms soft. Drain off fat. Add to cooked rice. Season with
pepper. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Time consuming and expensive. Be
prepared to give wild rice as much cooking time as possible, occasionally
it will require a bit more time as it absorbs water more slowly than
regular rice.

    3 tb Bacon fat or salad oil
    2 Garlic cloves, cut in half
    1 Veal – 1/2 leg or:-3 or 4 lb rolled shoulder-of veal
    1 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Pepper
    1/4 ts Thyme OR:
    1/2 ts Savory
    1 Bay leaf
    6 Potatoes – medium (6-8)
    6 Onions – medium (6-8)

    Melt or heat bacon fat or oil in cast iron saucepan. Stuff the 2 cloves of
    garlic, cut in two, into incisions made in the veal. Place the meat in the
    hot fat and brown well on all sides. Don’t rush this as the colour and
    flavour of the finished gravy will depend on how well the meat has been
    browned. Add the thyme or savory and the bay leaf. Place the potatoes and
    onions, whole around the meat. Don’t add any liquid. Cover tightly and cook
    over medium heat till meat is tender, about 2 hours. The potatoes and
    onions will not break as there is no liquid added. The veal will make its
    own gravy. When cooked, remove the meat from the pan to a heated platter.
    Place the pan over high heat and stir gently, so as not to break up the
    vegetables. When they are well coated with gravy, boil another minutes or
    so till the gravy has a nice consistency. This is a complete meal.

    Dec 11,2007

    1/2 c Milk; scalded, heated till bubbles appear around edges
    2 tb Butter
    1 c Cake and pastry flour
    1 1/4 ts Baking powder
    1/4 ts -Salt
    2 Eggs
    2/3 c Granulated sugar
    1/4 ts Vanilla
    Raspberry jam
    Icing sugar

    “The Home Cook Book , published in Toronto in 1879, included a recipe for
    Toronto pie. Although continuing as a family favorite, the name slipped
    into disuse during the intervening years. A delicate, hot-milk sponge cake
    split and filled with raspberry jam, Toronto Pie belongs in the same
    family as Boston cream pie.”
    During my 30+ years living in Toronto, I have never heard of this cake.

    Grease a 9 inch round layer cake pan and line with wax paper. Combine
    scalded milk and butter.

    Sift or blend together flour, baking powder and salt. Beat 2 eggs until
    very light and fluffy. Gradually beat in granulated sugar and vanilla.

    With mixer at high speed beat eggs and sugar for 1 minute. Fold in dry
    ingredients and then stir in hot milk mixture. Turn into prepared pan.
    Bake in preheated 350F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake springs
    back when lightly touched.

    Cool in pan. When almost cool, loosen edges and remove from pan. Split
    into two layers, sandwich together with raspberry jam and sprinkle icing
    sugar on top.

    Tetes de Violon a l’Ail

    The tiny, curled fronds of fern, which have gained a reputation as one of
    Canada’s national foods, come in a large part from the Matapedia River
    valley. At Auberge La Coulee Douce in Causapcal, Suzanne Couisneau likes
    to steam fiddleheads, then season then with garlic sauce.

    Shake fresh fiddleheads in a paper bag until brown skins come off;
    discard skins. Steam fresh or frozen, unthawed, fiddleheads until just
    tender. Meanwhile, heat butter in heavy frying pan and saute garlic and
    shallots until softened. Blend in soya sauce, sugar and wine. Add steamed
    fiddleheads, turning to coat them well in sauce. Serve at once.

    Les Frises Vinaigrette et Leurs Pousses Vertes

    Strawberries need not be confined to dessert, says Denis Pelletier, chef
    at Restaurant Le Mouilin de St. Laurent on Ile d’Orleans. The island is
    one of the province’s lushest strawberry-growing areas. The chef suggests
    serving this colourful salad with a semi-soft cheese as St. Nectaire.

    Make a salad dressing by combining vinegar, oil and water. Add chopped
    shallots and pepper to taste. Arrange sliced strawberries in a spiral
    formation on the spinach and drizzle with the dressing.
