This beautiful and piquant salad makes a stunning summer entertaining dish.
Spicy Thai Beef Salad
Warm Goat Cheese and Arugula Salad
Warm salads provide a sense of occasion, maybe because we most often eat them at fine dining restaurants. Any night can be an occasion when you make this tangy-peppery salad for family and friends.
Sea Salted Caramel Popcorn
Craving something salty and sweet? This is your snack food! You need a candy thermometer, also a very large saucepan so the boiling sugar does not splatter out of the pan. It’s safest to use a long-handled wooden spoon to stir and wear long sleeves.
Serrano Ham and Roasted Pear Salad
Serrano ham is a Spanish dry-cured ham, similar to Italian prosciutto but drier and firmer. It has a salty bite, so we’ve used it sparingly here, wrapping it around roasted pears for a delicious play of sweet and salty.
Chorizo and Potato Towers
Make this part of a Spanish tapas spread at your next cocktail party. Balance is key- if this is your hot selection, try spiced olives or ham and melon as your cold selection.
Pesto Halibut with Cherry Tomato Chow
Chow down on this delicious entrée and savour the flavour combinations.
Chicken with Vegetable Ragout
A ragout is a saucy French stew that can be made with meat or, as here, vegetables. It is much lighter than an Italian ragu, which is a thicker tomato-based meat sauce normally served over pasta.
Artichoke and Asiago Pork
A perfect meal for a small dinner party. Don’t make the cut through the tenderloin too deep - the idea is to get an even thickness when you open it up, so you do not need to pound the meat flat before rolling.
Summer Harvest Gratin
This beautiful side dish showcases the fabulous flavours and colours of the summer vegetable harvest.
Red Pepper Goat Cheese Tart
Crisp, flaky pastry is topped with a savoury vegetable mixture and tangy goat’s cheese. Pre-rolled PC Puff Pastry makes this fabulous appetizer a cinch.
