Book Club Recipe: Someone Else’s Love Story

Today’s post by chef Ingrid of Edible Tapestry | @EdibleTapestry

OrangeCreamWtrmk

Not that there was anything wrong with Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson, or her writing, but I did stamp my foot a little when I didn’t get the ending I was hoping for. My first thought was that somebody should have given that girl, Shandi, something more stimulating to tempt “Thor” with than a pot of potato soup. Yes, he was a simple, down-to-earth guy who would appreciate such a basic, home-cooked meal, but I thought we were on a mission, here! Weren’t we? Was I the only one who was rooting for her? Surely, I thought, Mimmy had some fabulous concoction from her time as owner of the Olde Timey Fudge Shoppe that would work wonderfully to entice a potential lover. But considering the fact that she had spent years loving just one man, and from a distance, I guess seduction, and teaching her daughter the art of, had been the last thing on Mimmy’s mind.

If characters were real and we could jump into books to help them out, I’d pop into this one and sneak my recipe for Orange Creamsicle Fudge into Mimmy’s recipe file so it would be on hand for Shandi when she needed it. I know that the outcome would have been the same. It would have to be, it’s too beautiful and perfect, but at least Shandi could always have known that she gave it her best shot.

Ingredients:

3/4 stick butter

Dash of salt

1/2 to 1 T heavy cream

1 tsp. orange extract

1 tsp vanilla

3 c. confectioner’s sugar

Food color to make orange fudge

Method:

Heat the butter in a small saucepan over low, just until it is melted.

100_6849

Remove from the heat. Whisk in the salt and extracts. Using a heavy spoon, stir in the sugar, adding cream as needed until a workable confection is made.

Divide the fudge in half.

100_8809

Add just enough food color to make one half a bright orange. I used just a smidge of peach paste color and a couple of drops of liquid yellow.

051

Knead in the color, then very lightly mix the orange colored fudge into the remaining white fudge to swirl and marbleize it. Press it into a plastic or parchment lined 9X9″ square pan, or something similar, and chill.

When it’s solid, cut it into squares.

Book Club Recipe: The Girl You Left Behind

Today’s post by our lovely chef, Ingrid, of Edible Tapestry | @EdibleTapestry

Meeting with your book club this month to discuss THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND? Try making this amazing dish inspired by the novel.

ChouFarciWtrmk

Chou Farci

When Sophie asks the Kommandant in The Girl You Left Behind if there are any dishes he would prefer her to cook, he answers that the meal she served to him and his men that same evening is one they would enjoy having again in the near future. She describes to him how she prepares the meal that is called Chou Farci.

It’s sausage meat, some vegetables and herbs, wrapped in cabbage leaves and poached in stock.

I was so inspired by her explanation that I wanted to find out what was so special about this take on the ordinary beef and rice stuffed cabbage, baked in tomato sauce, that I’d grown up eating. I decided it would be the perfect October She Reads dish, and imagined ladies carrying towel wrapped Crock Pot liners of steaming stuffed cabbage parcels to their book club meetings to discuss Jo Jo Moyes’ First World War novel.

The first thing I thought of when buying my ingredients, the pork sausage, in particular, was the baby that Sophie was holding wrapped in a blanket on her first meeting with the new Kommandant assigned to her village. Just as she worried about his reaction to the baby in her arms, had he taken a closer look, I was concerned that the types of sausage available to me wouldn’t be appropriate for the traditional French stuffed cabbage dish that the German officer was so fond of. And “some vegetables and herbs” was a vague enough description to keep me chewing my lip, hoping I’d be able to pull it off.

I decided to stick with ingredients that would have been readily available to Sophie in her wartime, French farm village. Just what would have been in those crates the Kommandant had delivered to the inn? Contaminant-free, freshly baked, crusty bread from the village baker, carrots, onions, and basic herbs, such as parsley and sage. I added one of my farm fresh eggs to the list to make sure my cabbage bundles would hold together while they poached. The butcher at my favorite meat market directed me to his most mild, basic links and I was on my way.

Ingredients:

1 lb. mild sausage. Mine was of the Italian variety, but very basic. You could even use mild breakfast sausage, if you like.

2 c. bread crumbs

1/4 c. finely grated carrot

1/4 c. sliced green onions

2 T chopped, fresh parsley

1 tsp. minced sage

1/2 tsp. salt. You may want to cook a little of the filling without salt to taste it. Your sausage may be salty enough.

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 egg

6 to 8 cabbage leaves

3 to 4 cups stock

Method:

Gently coax 6 to 8 leaves from a head of cabbage by cutting each at the stem.

Cut the hard vein from the base of each leaf in a “V” shape so that the leaf will fold over the sausage stuffing easily.

Bring a stock pot of water to boil. Blanch the leaves until softened, 3 to 4 minutes.

Remove from the heat and thrust into very cold water to stop the cooking process.

Squeeze the sausage from its casings into a bowl.

Add the bread crumbs, carrots, onions, herbs, egg, and salt and pepper.

Mix together to thoroughly combine.

012

Place a ball of filling in the center of each cabbage leaf and wrap the sides of the leaf up to make a round parcel.

016

Do this with remaining stuffing and leaves.

Lay the stuffed leaves in the bottom of a stock pot.

Cover with stock.

019

Bring the liquid to a poaching temperature, just until there is barely any movement. Poach for 2 hours.

You could also place them in the bottom of a slow cooker and cover with the stock. 8 hours on low should do it, but you should keep an eye on the level of the liquid to make sure it doesn’t evaporate away.

I really wanted to thicken the poaching liquid once the stuffed cabbage leaves were cooked to make a sauce, but Sophie didn’t, so I didn’t either.

022

6 to 8 servings.

Featured Book Club Recipe: The Perfume Collector

Today’s post by our chef, Ingrid of Edible Tapestry | @Edible Tapestry

We love how our featured book club selections inspire these recipes each month. And how perfect that THE PERFUME COLLECTOR was the impetus behind such a classy meal. Of course it’s no surprise, really. The book is classy as well.

056

Bourgeois Oysters

Yes, “they look like something one would avoid stepping on in the street “, as Grace so honestly put it in The Perfume Collector, but oysters on the half shell with champagne and “just a squirt of lemon “, how Monsieur Tissot preferred to eat them, were my must do choice for August’s book selection.

Auguste Escoffier, the father of modern cuisine, insisted in his 1864 A Guide to the Fine Art of French Cuisine that oysters be eaten just as Kathleen Tessaro described in her novel, The Perfume Collector. “Oysters ought to be served very cold. “, he emphasized. “In France and in the United States they are left in the hollow half which is better calculated to retain the natural liquor of the oyster. ”

Apparently, as Monsieur Tissot prompted Grace to do, one tilts the head back and allows the squishy mollusk to slide right down the throat before slithering into the belly.

I can appreciate the beauty of the dish, the tradition of eating them in this manner, but I just don’t have the stomach to down raw oysters. The ones pictured were promptly taken from their shells and dredged in flour. Fried oysters happen to be one of my favorite dishes. But for anyone who isn’t “too English ” and wishes to be as culinarily adventuresome as Grace was under Monsieur Tissot’s encouragement, here is the method for preparing and serving Edouard and Grace’s “Bourgeois Oysters “.

You will need:

Whole oysters by the dozen

An oyster knife

Crushed ice

Lemon wedges

A colorful garnish

Champagne (or, in my case, a cheap bottle of sparkling wine)

Hold an oyster in a towel, rounded shell down, flat shell up.

038

Slide the oyster knife into the crack between the flat and rounded shells. When the seal is broken and a gap is made, twist the knife to separate them further.

Slide the tip of the knife under the adductor muscle where it attaches to the upper, flat shell. Remove the top shell. To loosen the oyster from the bottom shell, scoop the knife under it to separate, leaving the oyster to lie in in its juices in the bowl-shaped shell.

039040

041

Arrange shucked oysters on a bed of ice to keep them chilled, around a center garnish and lemon wedges. Serve with chilled champagne.

Question: Are you brave enough to try raw oysters? Do tell!

Book Club Recipe for The Firebird

Today’s post by Ingrid from Edible Tapestry | @EdibleTapestry

A huge thanks to our lovely chef Ingrid for this recipe inspired by Susanna Kearsley’s THE FIREBIRD. We know our book clubs will love nibbling on these as they meet this month to discuss the novel!

LavLemTeaBis

Scottish castle ruins by the sea, English tea, Russian empresses…given these topics as inspiration, I didn’t have to reach far to decide that tea cakes would be the subject of my recipe creation for June. The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley begs for readers to sit in a comfy chair sipping a hot brew, nibbling a plateful of something fresh from the oven. Add blooming English lavender to the mix and you get Lavender Lemon Tea Biscuits.

They were a cinch to make. I used fresh lavender from my gardens in the recipe, but dried culinary lavender would work just as well. A little egg wash with lavender and lemon sugar sprinkled over each cookie gives them extra sweetness, flavor, and crunch.

Lavender Lemon Tea Biscuits

Dough:

2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. Himalayan pink salt

1 tsp. lemon zest

2 T lavender flowers

10 T butter

1 1/2 c. sugar

2 large eggs

Additional flour for rolling dough

Topping:

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp. lemon zest

1 T lavender flowers

Method:

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all the dough ingredients in the bowl of a mixer.

007

010

009

Mix at medium speed until they come together to form a dough. Transfer to a floured board. Roll to 1/4 inch thick.

013

Using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut into shapes.

014

Place the shapes on ungreased cookie sheets.

021

Combine sugar, lemon zest, and lavender for topping. Brush each tea biscuit with beaten egg. Sprinkle on a bit of the lavender lemon sugar.

015

Bake for 10 minutes. Immediately remove to cool on racks.

022

During my experimentation with this dough, I also made a gluten-free version and it worked well. I used Bob’s Red Mill All-purpose Gluten Free flour to substitute for the regular a.p. flour and reduced the volume of the butter to half.

Yield: app. 4 dozen

Orphan Train: Featured Recipe

Today’s post by Ingrid of Edible Tapestry | @EdibleTapestry

Today we have a recipe inspired by this month’s book club selection, ORPHAN TRAIN, and created by chef Ingrid of Edible Tapestry. We thought it fitting to provide this for the She Reads book clubs that will meet throughout the month to discuss the novel. We hope you find the book and this dish equally delicious!

 

RhubarbTartwithWtrmk

I’d intended to make a savory dish for May’s book selection as my last two guest posts were very sweet. The point of my collaboration with She Reads, however, is to create a recipe that is inspired by incidents in the book and the characters that they are centered around.

It was a dish from character Niamh’s own poignant culinary recollections that I decided must be the May recipe, despite the fact that I kept thinking someone really needed to cook that poor girl a dinner of fried chicken and mashed potatoes with creamed corn and collards. But the memory of her gram rolling yellow dough for a rhubarb tart while a goose roasted in the oven was such a source of comfort to her–the thing she uses to get through some difficult moments in Orphan Train. Her life, filled with strife from an early age, moves from one period to another with very few moments of tranquility. All she wants is to feel to safe. This vision of Gram bustling around her kitchen in County Galway momentarily calmed her and was the perfect inspiration for this recipe.

I was stubborn about this idea of mine. Rhubarb has been hard to find. The farmers in our area tell me it won’t be ready until next week. But one, Jane from Garnet Creek Road, said hers was ready and available for purchase. Look at these beautiful stalks.

006

I added a cup of diced strawberries for sweetness and color, but the rhubarb takes center stage in the tart, unlike the berry sweetness of a strawberry rhubarb pie. I used turbinado sugar which made a deep, rich burgundy filling. I loved the look and taste but white sugar would make a filling of a brighter color. For convenience, a prepared crust can be substituted for the Flaky Yellow Crust I have included in the recipe.

Ingredients:

Flaky Yellow Crust:

1 c. all-purpose flour, plus additional flour for rolling

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. sugar

6 T butter, cut into pieces

1/2 tsp. white vinegar

1 egg yolk

2 T ice cold water

Rhubarb Filling:

3 c. fresh rhubarb, sliced into half inch pieces

1 c. fresh, diced strawberries

2 c. sugar

Pinch of salt

1 T all-purpose flour

1 T butter

Method:

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all filling ingredients.

008

012

016

Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

017

Cook 20 minutes until thickened and reduced, stirring frequently.

To make the crust, sift together the salt, sugar, and flour in a medium sized mixing bowl.

018

Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles lumpy beach sand.

019

023

Add the egg yolk, vinegar, and water.

027

Mix just until the dough comes together. It happens very quickly. Over-mixing will make a tougher dough. Pat the dough into a flattened circle on a floured surface.

029

Dust the surface with flour. Roll into a circle large enough to fit inside a tart dish or pan.

031

Roll the dough up on the rolling pin to transfer.

032

Unroll it into the tart pan.

036

Fold the excess edges under to form a thick crust or trim it off.

037

Prick the bottom of the dough.

040

Chill.

When the filling is ready, pour it into the prepared crust.

042

Bake for 35 minutes.

046

Cool 30 minutes at room temperature, then chill thoroughly before serving to allow the filling to firm.

Featured Recipe For AND THEN I FOUND YOU

Today’s post by Ingrid from Edible Tapestry | @EdibleTapestry

A specially crafted recipe for the She Reads book clubs meeting this month to discuss Patti Callahan Henry’s AND THEN I FOUND YOU…

058

Jack begins his annual letters to Kate, “Happy…birthday to Luna.” Every time I read his opening lines I thought to myself that Luna needed a birthday cake. She missed all those birthday celebrations with her birth parents. So as the She Reads guest recipe blogger I became determined to do my darndest to see that she got one, or two, of those cakes. I kept reading to see if there would be inspiration elsewhere for a recipe idea to coincide with Patti Callahan Henry’s new novel, And Then I Found You. But by the time I reached the end of the book I still felt that Luna should have her birthday cake.

I was talking to my teen sons about how I should go about creating a birthday cake for the character without actually mixing together two layer yellow cake ingredients and whipping up a vat of butter cream. We were discussing her name and how it means the moon. Without hesitating, my thirteen-year-old son said I should make Moon Pies. Perfect. Especially since the book is primarily set in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Moon Pies are a great tradition in the southern states. Yep. Luna pies with colored sprinkles. I would even give Luna a lit pink birthday candle in the finished dish photo.

After I’d imagined what I would need to create my Luna pies, it occurred to me that Moon Pies might simply be glorified, preassembled s’mores. Really?! I knew I wanted Luna’s to be chocolate coated. Sure enough, I found all the ingredients but candy sprinkles in front of the sporting goods department of my local discount store, waiting for would-be campers. Graham crackers went in my shopping basket along with the biggest Hershey bar I’d ever seen and those gargantuan roasting marshmallows that you can only find during camping season.

When I got my goodies home, the trial and error began. How to cut the crispy graham cracker sheets into rounds without crumbling them? After a few failed attempts, I took four full sheets of cracker and tucked them inside a brown paper lunch sack. Then I sprinkled in a tablespoon or two of water, just flicking it over the crackers and the inside of the bag. I rolled down the top of the sack very tightly and microwaved the package for 13 seconds. I don’t know why I stopped at 13 but I have a hunch that if they’d been nuked for any longer they would have turned into something otherworldly. Already, where the edges of the damp bag touched the crackers, they were getting gummy. Any less and they would have been too crisp for me to cleanly cut into circles. 13 seconds for 13 missed birthday cakes? My 13-year-old boy coming up with the idea. I don’t know…It is what it is.

I decided not long after figuring out how to cut my graham crackers that marshmallows should come with a warning label or at least microwave instructions. I found out the hard way that those things can grow to four times their size within a matter of seconds! So here I was with the biggest marshmallows on the market, cutting them to half the size of regular roasting marshmallows to make a reasonably sized Luna pie.

This is how I finally got the job done. I ended up in a pretty sticky situation for a bit there, but very kindly worked out the messy details for anyone who wants to make their own chocolate coated marshmallow cookies. My boys happily polished off my unsuccessful, extra gooey attempts.

Ingredients:

8 full graham cracker sheets

2 T water

2 Campfire Giant Roasters marshmallows, quartered

2 (4.4 oz.) Hershey milk chocolate bars

Candy sprinkles

A small brown paper bag

I mason jelly jar with a normal sized mouth, not wide-mouthed.

Method:

Place 4 of the graham cracker sheets in the paper sack.

033

Sprinkle in the water. Close tightly.

034

Microwave the whole bag on high for 13 seconds. Immediately remove the crackers and lay them in stacks of two on a flat surface. Use the mouth of the jar (or a cookie cutter of the same size) to cut two circles in each stack of two crackers to make four rounds.

038

Repeat with the remaining graham crackers until you have 16 rounds. They aren’t perfectly round. I ended up with a flat side on almost every one. But the marshmallow and chocolate coating nicely smoothed out all the edges.

Place a quarter of a marshmallow in the center of 8 rounds on a microwave safe plate.

039

Microwave them for 20 seconds, just until they are soft and puffy. Any longer and they will grow and grow until I just don’t know what happens. I didn’t stick around to find out. Place a round on top of each warm marshmallow and press only hard enough to get the marshmallow to fill the round to the edges.

040

Allow the sandwich cookie to cool.

Melt the chocolate bars over very low heat in a saucepan on the stove just until glossy.

032

041

Dip and coat each marshmallow sandwich in the chocolate.

042

044

Sprinkle with the candy colors before the chocolate cools and sets.

046

043

061

063

Yield: 8 Happy Birthday Luna Pies

Introductions, A Recipe, And Bonaventure Arrow

Today’s post by our new food blogger, Ingrid from  Edible Tapestry  | @EdibleTapestry

We have long believed that novels and food are a perfect match. Especially when planning a book club get together. Which is why we’ve been looking for a food blogger to create a dish inspired by each month’s featured selection. But it couldn’t be just anyone. Our dream blogger would be as savvy about books as she was about food. Lucky for us, we found Ingrid, founder of Edible Tapestry.

A bit about Ingrid in her own words:

“From a very early age I have read cookbooks like novels– curled up on the couch perusing recipe after recipe, scanning images of plated food that tell a story of their own.   Even when immersing myself in a novel, I find I am more drawn to those in which culinary delights play an integral role in the lives of the characters. I am certain that this literary devotion to food, and the passion my parents helped instill in me for quality ingredients and companionable cooking are what led me to begin a professional cooking career as a young adult.   My food blog, Edible Tapestry, allows me to share my adoration for all things culinary while devoting my life to my children through home schooling and working in partnership with my husband in mobile app development.   In addition to the hours I spend involved in these pursuits, I write, practice yoga, saunter through the forest, and care for the animals and plants on our small farm in the the Southern Appalachian Mountains.”

Those of you discussing The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow with your book clubs this month can either make Ingrid’s Shoo Fly Marmalade in advance to give out to your fellow clubbers OR you could make it together and let it simmer while you chat about the novel. Either way you’ll have a tasty reminder of this beautiful novel to take home with you:

Shoo Fly Marmalade

044

Gumbo would have been a given. It would have been easy to choose jambalaya or crawdads or beignets when creating a recipe around a book set in coastal Louisiana. But midway through reading Bonaventure’s story, my heart, which had been stolen by this little fellow on page one, was set on the idea of making Shoo Fly Marmalade for my first post as the She Reads food blogger. It must be Shoo Fly Marmalade, I kept thinking, as I turned page after page of The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow . There were so many aspects of the marmalade spoon scene that spoke to me of who Bonaventure was; of what went through his very special mind, minute by minute, that it became one of my favorite moments in the book. Fortunately, it was also one I could try to emulate with a recipe. One that would bring something tangible to the lives of those of us who adore Bonaventure and appreciate the glimpse Rita Leganski has allowed us to have into his very unique life. So I set to work.

The recipe I came up with is very simple, even for someone who had never before attempted to make marmalade. Chutney, compotes, jellies, jams…yes. Marmalade? Nope. Did I need to add pectin? Would I be doing the dreaded soft ball stage test? As it tuns out, I was able to ignore my pot of simmering ingredients on the back burner of my stove and go about my business. At the end of two hours I had marmalade! Now I’m wondering if I’ll ever buy jelly from the store again. Surely there will be a jar or two of Shoo Fly Marmalade in the fridge or pantry from this day forward. Just four ingredients and the time it takes to watch a chick flick, and you’ll be shooing flies from your marmalade jar too.

Ingredients:

5 Navel oranges

2 Lemons

2 c. Sugar

2 c. Water

Method:

Take two of the oranges and half, quarter, or wedge them, leaving the rinds intact.

001

018

With a sharp knife, cut them into very, very thin slices.

Peel and quarter the remaining three oranges.

020

Cutting the rind off the orange will eliminate the white pith that can add bitterness to dishes. Trim the center membrane from the wedges to avoid tough chunks in the finished marmalade.

022

Juice the two lemons.

023

Place all the orange slices and wedges in a medium saucepan or small stock pot. Add in the lemon juice, water, and sugar. Stir well to combine.

026

027

029

Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a very low, bubbling simmer.

030

005

I have two rambunctious older boys so set mine on a back burner for safe keeping. You can look at it all you want, but you probably won’t have to stir or touch your simmering marmalade until near the end of the two hours when it begins to get very thick and sticky. Also, reduction time may take a bit longer, depending on the size and juice content of your citrus fruits.

033

037

I made two batches of marmalade. In the first I added turbinado sugar, which is what I typically use in my baking. The finished marmalade was a dark golden color with bits of bright candied orange zest throughout, and took two hours on the nose to congeal. I decided, however, that it just didn’t look Shoo Fly Marmalade enough for me so I bought white granulated sugar that I usually reserve for birthday cakes and holiday baking and tried again. That batch looked exactly as I expected it to look, all 50’s kitchen, sunny window yellow.

040

044

And now my lucky neighbor will receive a jar of the surplus marmalade.

Yield: Approximately 2 1/2 cups. The finished marmalade can be kept in the refrigerator. Just treat it like you do a jar of jelly. Or it can be canned for long term storage. Just make sure that metal lid is sealed and doesn’t bounce back when pressed. According to FitDay.com, marmalade is high in fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A.
