You’re looking at my newest creation... I call it “Chicken Toscana”.... it reminds me of a Tuscan meal with robust flavors of blistered cherry tomatoes, Portabella mushrooms, onions, garlic, Parmesan, fresh oregano and basil, diced zucchini, black truffle salt and a touch of cream.... I think I’ll keep it on rotation.

A special order birthday cake. It is a moist and light vanilla cake base, with a dacquoise merengue layer and it’s filled with my homemade lemon curd mousse. Fresh raspberries tie it all together in a nice little package. A special cake for a special bday girl!😁

Black and white cookie... It’s a classic dessert that became popular in New York in the early 1900’s. It’s really a cake and I make mine without that cloyingly sweet aftertaste... legend has it that it was brought over by Eastern Europeans. I just think they are a fantastic culinary dessert. No matter how they arrived, they are here to stay...

Fresh homemade pasta with a deep, rich, pasta sauce... cooked for hours, low and slow. Fresh basil is torn and sprinkled on at the last minute and as the heat from the sauce and pasta hits the basil, it fills the air with a subtle perfume of delicate, sweet basil....viva l’italia! 🇮🇹

Happy national dog day. This is my puppy Logan. I call all dogs, “puppy”... and always have. He has been one of the greatest joys in my life and I’m grateful to have been his fur mom. Bringing him home from Canada as a 12 week old, he was scared and crying. Until I figured out that if I put my hand in his crate (for hours on end), he’d stop crying. And that is when we formed our unbreakable bond. He lived to be 13-1/2 years old and anyone who knew him, instantly fell in love with him. He was an American and Canadian champion, so on the underside of one ear he had a AKC tattoo and the other was his CKC tattoo, although he never acted like he was a big deal. He was to me....

Orange chicken with Jasmin rice, toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onion. The sauce is sweetened with a fresh orange juice, soy/fresh ginger/mirin combo that ties it all together. The chicken is cubed and dipped into egg and seasoned panko and then baked. And then the milk bread.... to balance it all out, of course.

I love experimenting and fusing two techniques or flavors together. If a Babka and a cinnamon roll had a child..... this would be it. Except, it’s filled with toasted walnuts and a chocolate hazelnut filling. It takes about 6 hours to make, including the rising time. It’s totally worth it to me because I’m on a cray cray bread kick lately. Don’t try and stop me. 😂

Tbt - at the end of the day on the aft deck in the Caribbean. It was Christmas (hence, the tree on the deck). I was expecting a charter group to board and so I put on my whites to formally introduce myself to a huge family of lovely people. Earlier in the morning, I took a walk to the dock master’s office and passed a gentleman who reminded me of the holiday by saying, “Merry Christmas, mon”....Good thing. I almost forgot. Then the stewardess started playing, “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” through the boat speakers.

A few days into the 2 week charter, it rained ...for 10 days straight. Guess what people do on a boat when it rains? EAT, take a nap, eat again, then nap a bit and ask what’s for dinner? So in between feeding the crew and the guests, it’s non stop movement. However, the moment the sun came out, the entire charter group went on a fishing escapade, only to come back, empty handed. Well, actually they did catch a fish. A poisonous one that they caught on a deep drop, 1,000 feet down. And for the record, they wanted American baby back ribs. No problem.... I got this.

My milk bread is the softest bread there is. It rises twice and I add an egg wash just before I bake it. Then I glaze it with a simple syrup after I take it out of the oven. It’s a perfect accompaniment for orange chicken and jasmine rice.

My French butter cookies with bits of caramel and toffee. I once made these on a yacht for a broker who was trying to sell their client’s yacht. Surprisingly, the aroma brought prospects that were cookie monsters😂That’s the power of French butter cookies, I guess. Viva la 🇫🇷 🍪

Today is the anniversary of the passing of Julia Child. She was a couple of days away from turning 92. I adore the fact that she showcased this technique, called “En Lorgnette”.... she’s a true original. In regards to Chef Jose and Chef Eric.... to think they are actually learning from her, is priceless.

My Challah bread. Of course it’s scented with a little vanilla and lemon zest. This is the best bread for making French toast or bread pudding. You can also cube it and make a great savory stuffing (without lemon zest and vanilla of course).

My cranberry lemon square. I love lemons and I love fresh cranberries. During cranberry season, I stock up, double bag them and keep them in the freezer. The tartness of the cranberries plays well with the sweetness of the lemon curd and crisp, buttery shortbread crust.

My French financiers. It’s completely non-traditional . Usually it’s not chocolate and it’s usually a round dome, oval or a rectangle & in the shape of a mini gold bar. It was named after French “bankers” to drum up business and appeal to the banking industry in Paris in the late 1800’s. A genius marketing plan, ahead of its time. In this case, I baked it in a mini rose cake pan and glazed it with a French Ganache. I like to take a traditional idea and modernize it. After all, Chocolate is always in style. ❤️ 🇫🇷

Tbt- beautiful day in Lyford Cay.... finished my day after a big charter and served them their request of Florentine chicken, haricot vert with toasted almonds and brown jasmine rice.

Afterwards, I took a walk on the beach only to hear horses hooves, clicking behind me. A group of women visiting the cay, took a trail ride along the coastline. Never know what you’re going to see in the Caribbean. One thing is for sure though.... you will always see a beautiful sunset.

07/23/2020

My Portuguese Custard Tarts (pastéis de nata). This is a bit time consuming, but truth be told, it is one of the best desserts I’ve ever eaten.... It’s a common delight found in Lisbon bakeries and served warm. It consists of a rich egg custard, nestled in a buttery tart and sugared top. I flavor mine with a hint of vanilla and rum extracts. The roots are said to be from France, during Henry the IV rule, in 1399. The flavor combination of this dessert makes it a timeless classic. 🇵🇹

These are my ricotta filled, glazed vanilla crescents. I used an old fashioned ravioli cutting tool (that I inherited from my friend’s mom) to make the end result pattern. I filled it with a sweet ricotta filling with a touch of vanilla and fresh lemon zest. Typically this bread is filled with farmers cheese or even feta. I happened to be in a ricotta kind of mood.
