Canal House Cooking The Good Life


Description:

This is a collection of some of our favorite recipes, the ones we cook for ourselves, our friends, and our families during the fall and right through the holiday season. In this volume we toast to the good life with ice-cold flutes of grower Champagne and cook lots of big, delicious food. We assemble our version of smørrebrød—that glorious array of Danish open-faced sandwiches—with smoked, cured, and pickled fish. We turn out classic pâtés and terrines; top buckwheat blini with smoked salmon and trout roe; tuck black truffles under the skin of our roasted chicken; make our own sausages to serve with big spoonfuls of creamy polenta; and fill crêpes with savory and sweet fillings. We fry apple fritters in the fall and decorate sugar cookies for the holidays.
