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

Traditions and foods transplanted from our great and great-great grandparents. Though I would expect that some sticky points in the translations have occurred over the years, in general, my holidays rely largely on the flavours of elsewhere. This year, I wanted to add something to our holiday table and traditions which celebrate where we are right now; in this moment, season and of this place. Oysters are of course all about provenance,… Read more

Recreating recipes from fond memories is fun to do in your own kitchen, and these homemade candied pecans pay homage to the ones you may’ve had at the state fair.
