Kitchen Scale Parchment Paper (preferably unbleached) Baking Sheets Mesh Strainer for sifting


French Macarons

By Chef Louisa Smith of Good Seed Baking Company

Directions: 1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. (note: oven temperatures can vary and every oven is different. The biggest challenge in baking macarons is to figure out the correct oven temperature. If your macarons are turning out too flat and spread out and sticking to the parchment paper then your temperature is likely too low. If they’re turning out crackly and overly browned your temperature is too high.) 2. Sift dry ingredients, then whisk powdered sugar and almond meal together. 3. Place all meringue ingredients in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. 4. Whisk on low speed for 3 minutes, medium speed for 3 minutes and high speed for 3 minutes. 5. Stop the mixer and add any color and/or flavoring agents. 6. Whisk on high speed for another 10 seconds or until additives are fully incorporated. Your ultimate goal is a stiff, dry meringue, but not one which is breaking into clumps. It should form stiff peaks. 7. Remove the bowl from the mixer. Add the dry ingredients to the meringue.

French Macarons

By Chef Louisa Smith of Good Seed Baking Company

Directions: 8. Using a silicon spatula, stir the meringue and the dry mix together until all the dry mix is damp. Then switch to a folding motion, folding together the mixture until it begins to smooth. Scrape your spatula along the bottom and sides while rotating the bowl to ensure consistent mixing. 9. Pause to evaluate the mixture every 5 strokes or so. Mixture is ready when it flows like lava off the lifted spatula and not in clumps. If left alone the top of the mixture should become glossy and smooth. 10. Prepare a pastry bag with a large round tip (i.e. Ateco 805). Twist it closed just above the tip and use a small clamp or clothespin to secure it. 11. To fill pastry bags, place bag in a glass and fold top of bag over the lip of the glass. Spoon in ingredients, then twist it shut and clamp. 13. Place a piece of unbleached parchment paper over tray and lay it flat. If using a convection oven, pipe some of the mixture between the paper and tray so they stick together. 14. Pipe batter in 1 inch circles. Be careful not to let them sit too close or they’ll flow together. 14


French Macarons

By Chef Louisa Smith of Good Seed Baking Company

Directions: 15. Rap the trays hard against work surface 5 - 10 times to release air bubbles and settle any peaks. 16. Place in the oven and use a wooden spoon to prop the door open slightly and release any humidity, which prevents cracking. 17. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes 18. Prepare more trays while the first batch bakes. Do not prepare more than the oven can hold in the next batch. Unbaked shells should not be allowed to sit out for longer than 35 minutes or they will dry out. 19. When cool, separate the shells from the parchment. Match shells by size and lay out on the tray in pairs. On one half of the pair, pipe a nickel size blob of filling. 20. Pick up both shells and press together in a slight twisting motion. You’re done! Store Macarons in an airtight container in the fridge, but allow them to come to room temperature before eating. They improve after 24 - 48 hours, becoming softer and chewier. They keep for up to 10 days.

Vegetable Sushi Rolls A delicious vegetarian meal for the novice sushi roller By Chef Gregory Meagher

Assembling the rolls:

Directions:

On a clean workspace, place the sushi mat in front of you with the slats running horizontally. Lay a sheet of nori, shinyside down and line it up with the bottom edge of the mat. Lightly moisten fingers with water (to prevent rice from sticking), and then put a Ÿ cup of rice near the bottom edge of the nori. Gently press the rice until it is spread evenly across the nori, but leave about 1 ½ inches of nori uncovered at the top of the edge. Line up the fillings evenly across the rice on the bottom edge of the nori. Leave about 1-inch of rice uncovered at the top edge. Starting at the bottom edge, tightly roll the nori, rice, and fillings toward the top edge until you form a cylinder. Roll the mat around the cylinder, and as you continue to roll the sushi toward the top of the mat, squeeze the mat to tighten the roll. After the sushi is rolled, open the mat, dab the unsealed edge of nori with some water, and roll the sushi forward to seal. Transfer the sushi to a plate and cover with damp paper towels. Repeat this process to create the remaining sushi rolls. Cut each sushi roll into 8 pieces with a sharp, wet knife or an electric knife. Serve with a bowl of soy sauce for dipping. Add a dab of wasabi to the soy sauce for added spice.

Fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls Goi Coun | By Knowledge Kafe Chef Mary McLaughlin

Directions: Prepare the peanut dipping sauce, noodles & roasted peanuts. Set aside. In a bowl, combine the shredded carrot with the sugar; let stand for 10 minutes to soften. Have a basin of warm water ready to moisten the rice papers. Work with only 2 sheets of rice paper at a time, keeping the remaining sheets covered with a barely damp cloth to prevent curling. Immerse each sheet individually into the warm water. Quickly remove and spread out flat on a dry towel, without letting the sheets touch one another. The rice paper will become pliable within seconds! Lay one piece of lettuce over the bottom third of the rice paper. On the lettuce, place 1 tablespoon of noodles, 1 tablespoon of the shredded carrot, bean sprouts and several basil, coriander and mint leaves. Roll up the paper halfway into a cylinder. Fold both sides of the paper over the filling. Keep rolling the paper into a cylinder to seal. Place the rolls on a plate covered with a damp towel so they will stay moist as you fill the remaining wrappers. Pour the dipping sauce into small individual bowls and sprinkle with the ground nuts. Dip the rolls in the sauce as you eat. NOTE: These rolls can be prepared a few hours in advance, covered with a damp towel or plastic wrap and kept at room temperature until needed. Yield: 8 rolls or 4 servings 24
