Perfect roast beef with demi-glace sauce is a dinner party worthy dish. A serious dinner party dish. For when you really want to impress. When you want to pull out all the stops.
This is a simple, yet elegant curried carrot soup. It’s carrot with a hint of curry so will work nicely with just about any entree you pair it with.
Salmon salad nicoise makes a great fancy lunch or light dinner. Salmon, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes and olives. Perfectly cooked hardboiled eggs. Tied together with a simple mustard vinaigrette. Perfect.
I love a good creamy potato salad loaded with bits of egg and pickle. But it doesn’t always match the menu. It’s kind of a sledge hammer side. Strong. Assertive. In your face. Warm potato salad with bacon and coarse mustard is a more refined take on potato salad. Chill. Confident. A bit understated. But totally awesome.
Chickpea salad with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette is the perfect side dish for those summer dinners on the deck. Serve it with a nice rotisserie chicken and some tzatziki and a glass of chilled white wine. With anything grilled really. The perfect summer meal.
Moroccan chicken and chickpeas. That’s a pretty broad description. This version is a warm dish of onion, garlic, spices and peanut butter. The chicken stays crispy and the chickpeas get meltingly delicious. It just works. And it works well.
