Baked Oysters with Black Pepper Cognac Mignonette from Cottage Farm

It seems that many of my holiday traditions are wrapped up in the places from which my family hails, going back generations and to all manner of countries. 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

Thai Carrot Soup in the Wolf Gourmet Blender

Confidence in Every Step: Thai Carrot Soup

Inspired by the Thai soup tom kha gai, this vibrant orange soup is stunning (especially in a white bowl), and has a combination of sweetness and spice ideal for lunch or a light dinner. Coconut milk adds rich creaminess and also keeps this soup dairy-free. Cutting the carrots into large pieces is fine – the Wolf Gourmet blender can make quick work of the ingredients without any unnecessary effort on your part. Once the prep is complete, fill the blender and select the soup cycle. The high speed of the blades is enough to create friction to heat ingredients as the blending takes place…. Read more
