Strawberry Rhubarb Cake from Three Little Halves

A couple of years ago, I embarked on a mission to find the yummiest, most enticing, and most delicious recipe for fruit bread. The best fruit bread on this planet. Period. Just in case you are wondering, my search had nothing to do with culinary curiosity, nothing to do with a quest for excellence and kitchen supremacy. No, no, no, it was a different story altogether: my six-year-old daughter was refusing to eat fruits and an intervention was badly needed. Those who have a six-year-old will understand the magnitude of the effort. They know developing your child’s palate and diversifying… Read more

A Taste of Spring Atop Your Toast

A Taste of Spring Atop Your Toast | Wolf Gourmet

Spring is all about delicate greens and pinks returning to the market – soft herbs and lettuces, rhubarb, strawberries, radishes all fall into this color story and all make wonderful toppings for thick slices of perfectly toasted bread- which just happens to be one of my favorite food groups. The best thing about the Wolf Gourmet 4-slice toaster is how it can accommodate extra thick slices of bread, which make the best toast for topping. It also has a warming function that keeps your toast nice and, well, toasty warm while you putz around deciding what to put on it…. Read more

Cottage Farm’s Molasses Ginger Loaf Cake

Molasses Ginger Bread | Wolf Gourmet 4-slice Toaster

On a particularly early morning, I found myself sitting in one of London’s east end restaurants, working through details of a fast approaching and fairly high-pressure event. It was a misty wooly grey morning, and I had waited outside in the drizzle for someone to let me in. Being so early, the space was just a hair shy of warm, the ovens only having just begun their day’s labor. I ordered a cup of black coffee, imagining it would be the hottest thing on their early morning menu. A hand appeared in my peripheral vision and placed a plate in… Read more

Recreating a Restaurant Dish: Salt Baked Fish

On a recent date night, we ordered a whole sea bass baked in salt at a Spanish restaurant. With great pomp and circumstance, the waitress approached our table with the fish on a beautiful platter, rapped it with the back of a spoon, then lifted away pieces of the hardened salt shell, exposing the still-steaming bass inside. She boned and filleted the fish, then gave us each a generous serving. It completely exceeded my expectations and afterward, I was determined to learn how to make salt-baked fish, regardless of the time and effort involved. Much to my surprise, it was… Read more

Cold Weather Cuisine: Rustic Potato Soup

Wolf Gourmet potato soup

If you have ever lived along the Great Lakes, you know the weather forecasts often call for over a foot of snow and temperatures hovering near zero for weeks at a time. Warm and comforting meals are always on the menu during these cold months, which seem to last from October to April. There was a popular mom-and-pop restaurant where I lived (it is now, sadly, closed) which served a simple lunch of soup and bread on weekdays and it was packed in the winter. Fresh-from-the oven loaves of Italian bread were there for you to slice, and soups ranged… Read more

Winter-Ready Appetizer: Mushroom Gruyere Pinwheels

Wolf Gourmet pinwheels

Puff pastry is your secret weapon for making all sorts of appetizers with very little effort. The paper-thin layers of dough and butter, when subjected to the oven’s heat, rise becoming crispy and golden in the process. Making puff pastry from scratch requires a significant time commitment. Frozen puff pastry from the store is a simple and convenient substitute. The versions made with butter definitely have the best flavor; it’s worth seeking these out in the freezer section. Once you find your favorite brand, keep a few packages on hand. Once thawed, spread nutty Gruyere and earthy, wine-bathed mushrooms over… Read more
