Pinzimonio


1 soup spoon of Balsamic Vinegar
1 pinch of Salt
500 mL of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (2 cups)
5 Carrots, peeled and cut into sticks
6 Celery Branches, cut into sticks
18 Raddishes
1 Cucumber, cut into sticks
6 slices of Bread, crust removed and cut into sticks


1. In a bowl, whisk the Balsamic Vinegar and the Salt. Add the Oil. Pour into little individual bowls.

2. Put the Vegetables and the Bread on the plates. Serve with the Oil Sauce to dip.

3. Enjoy (This Italian-style Dipping Sauce if perfect to taste the Oil. You can change the Vegetables to choice, Onions, Fennel, Asparguses, Cauliflowers, etc. A few lessons to taste the Oils: 1: Taste the Oils before buying them, without bread, with a small spoon. If you taste more than one, eat some Bread between the Oils. 2: Must be able to see the producer and the production date on the bottle. 3: Buy Quality Oils. The success of this plate depends on it. We don't buy a rancid Butter: Oil isn't different. 4: An Oil must have an honest smell and Artichoke, Lemon, Fresh Apples, Almonds and Herbs perfumes. 5: To taste it, put a small quantity of Oil into the mouth and slowly roll it on your tongue. Note the texture and the taste. Inhale a good breathe with your teeth clenched. The taste will develop in the mouth and will get spicy if the Oil is young and of good quality. 6: Reject the Oils with a rancid odor, with a too acidic taste or with a very green color. 7: The Olive Oil must be at the room's temperature. Never put it into the fridge).

Brown Sugar and Pears Pie


1 soup spoon of Butter + 1 tea spoon (for the mold)

225 g of Brown Sugar (8 ounces)
2 soup spoons of 35% Whipping Cream
1 Egg Yolk, whisked
2 soup spoons of Cooking Sparkling Sugar*

Sprinkle with the Cooking Sparkling Sugar. Cook in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until the Pastry is well golden.

It is often used on cookies. You can find it in delicatessens, on cake decorations sites and sometimes in grocery stores.)

Cherry Jam


4,5 Kilograms of Cherries, stoned (10 pounds)
3 Kilograms of Sugar (7 pounds)
1 Vanilla Clove
250 mL of Lemon Juice (1 cup)
250 mL of Orange Juice (1 cup)


1. Put the Cherries, the Sugar and the Vanilla Clove in a large jam basin. Cover and let them macerate a whole night in the fridge.

2. Remove from the fridge. Add the Lemon and Orange Juices. Bring to a boil and let it stew for 30 minutes, over Medium heat, until the Cherries are tender and the Sugar melt. Bring to a boil again, then cook for about 15 more minutes or until the Jam is set. Take 1 spoonful of the Jam and pour into a cold saucer. Poke the Jam with a finger. If it wrinkles, it is done. If not, put the basin back on the heat and let it boil for 5 more minutes.

3. With a scalded and dried skimmer, quickly gather the foam at the top of the Jam. Leave the Jam to cool down until a thin skin grow at its surface.

4. Fill clean, dry and warm pots with it. Cover the pots and turn them around on a clean cloth-covered tray. Leave it t ocompletely cool down. Keep it somewhere dry, fresh and dark.

5. Enjoy (I (the author) rarely gives jam recipes, but the Cherry Jam is an exceptional product that everyone must try at least once in their life. We savor it one spoonful at the time on Fresh Bread or Ice Cream. The longest step is to stone the Cherries).

Oysters Soup

12 Fresh Oysters
2 soop spoons of Non-salted Butter
1/2 Shallot, finely cut
1 Leek, in thin slices
1 Large Potato, peeled and diced
2 Thyme Branches
500 mL of Clams Juices (2 cups)
250 mL of Light Cream (1 cup)
250 mL of 35% Whipping Cream (1 cup)
Salt and Pepper


1. With a small oyster knife, open the Oysters. Remove their Flesh and pour their Water into a bowl.

2. In a saucepan, melt the Butter. Add the Shallot and brown it over Medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the Leek and cook for 5 minutes. Salt and pepper them.  Add the Thyme. Pour the Reserved Clam Water, the Clam Juice, the Light Cream and the Whipping Cream. Pepper it. Leave it to stew for 15 minutes, stirring often.

3. Coarsely crush the Potato with a fork into the Soup. Add the Oysters and let them stew for 2 minutes.

4. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Remove the Thyme. Serve the Oysters Soup into deep plates.

5. Enjoy (A remarkable starter dish for a dinner between friends. Buying and keeping Oysters: Remember that we eat oysters from October to April. In the summer, the bivalves breed and are milky, but that doesn't prevent them from being good. In general, however, they are less appetizing. The bivalve can live a few months just below the point of freezing. Choose closed oysters, intacts and very heavy, signs that they're full of water and living. If they are opened, they must immediately close themsleves if hit. The bacterias quickly spreads over dead mollusc: it is imperative to eat only living oysters. The oyster can be kept for a few days in the bottom of the fridge. They can also be deepfrozen, without their shells, up to three months).
