This is not an easy recipe; it is time consuming, delicate and difficult to handle. It is, however, lovely both to look at and to eat.

IngredientsServes: 6

  • For the pate
  • 300g salmon
  • 1 stick celery
  • 150ml double cream
  • 125g mascarpone cheese
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons horseradish sauce
  • 1/2 pint milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • For the cannelloni
  • 2 carrots, chopped into small cubes
  • 500ml water
  • 1 sachet powdered gelatine
  • For the balsamic reduction
  • 200ml good quality balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar

MethodPrep:1hr ›Cook:25min ›Extra time:8hr chilling › Ready in:9hr25min

  1. Steam the salmon and the celery in a steamer until the salmon is no longer pink in the centre and flakes easily with a fork, and the celery is tender. Remove and flake the salmon being careful to remove any bones. Allow to cool and then finely chop the celery and place both in a liquidiser.
  2. Add the cream, mascarpone, lemon juice and horseradish sauce and blitz thoroughly. Slowly add the milk until a stiff consistency is reached. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place in a bowl and cover and place in the fridge.
  3. Prepare the carrots by chopping into small cubes before adding to 500ml boiling salted water. Simmer gently until soft.
  4. Place the carrots and a little of the cooking water into a liquidiser and blend until smooth, slowly adding the rest of the water. Place in a saucepan and allow to cool.
  5. Prepare a large flat pan by lining with cling film.
  6. When cool sprinkle the gelatine over the liquified carrot and then gently reheat until the gelatine has dissolved.
  7. Pour into the lined pan and spread out evenly. Make sure the pan is level and allow to cool.
  8. Meanwhille form the pate into sausage shapes about about 4 to 5 inches long and 1 inch in diameter, and roll tightly in cling film. By now the carrot jelly should have cooled and set. Place this and the pate in the fridge and leave overnight.
  9. Now for the complicated bit: The next day remove the carrot jelly from the fridge. Cut a sheet of cling film and cover a chopping board large enough to cover the pan. Place over the pan and then turn upside down. The jelly should drop easily out of the pan and the original cling film can be peeled off.
  10. Cut strips of the jelly to the same width as the length of the pate 'sausages'.
  11. Unwrap the pate and place gently on the jelly. Using the underlying cling film gently roll the carrot jelly around the pate. Place back into the fridge until required.
  12. For the balsamic reduction: Place the vinegar into a small pan and heat. Boil until reduced by about half its volume then slowly add the sugar, tasting as you go. Allow to cool before serving.

Tip

If available use the leafy tops of the celery as a garnish. Even when chilled the cannelloni are very delicate and need careful handling. I found it best to use a scraper or a palette knife.

Our Advice for Pairing Wine with Salmon

Full-Bodied White Wines – As a general rule, rich oily fish like Salmon pair wonderfully with full-bodied white wines like oak-aged Chardonnay, Viognier, Marsanne, White Rioja, White Burgundy, and White Pinot Noir. However, depending on the preparation method and sauce, you can easily pair Salmon with rosé or light-bodied, low-tannin red wines.

First, we’ll discuss the nature of pairing a wine directly with a very basic salmon and then offer a few options of pairings depending on the sauce and preparation method. Let’s do this!


Whipped Brie Cones with a Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

Ingredients

  • 57 g unsalted butter, soft, but cool to the touch (4 Tbs)
  • 8 g sugar (2 tsp)
  • 32 grams all-purpose flour (3 Tbs + 2 tsp)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tbs sesame seeds
  • 8 ounces whipped brie (see note)
  • 1-2 Tbs balsamic vinegar reduction (see note)

Instructions

Notes

Ingredient discussion:

Like most of Thomas Keller’s recipes, this one calls for amounts measured to the nearest gram. You may be saying, “That’s ridiculous, I can’t believe someone would measure this carefully”. We can tell you, we do measure out his recipes this carefully. And do you know why? They work. Perfectly. Each and every time. The ingredients are pretty basic, but we recommend that you use unsalted butter, so you won’t have cones that are too salty, and, as always, use an egg from a happy hen. One that eats grasses and bugs it makes all the difference (in the taste of the egg, and for the hen).

Procedure in detail:

You’ll need a little stencil like this so you can make nice circles of batter for the cones.

Make a stencil. Find a plastic lid from a container of something like oatmeal or a large tub of yogurt. It should be one of those flexible lids, not the brittle kind. Trim off the lip around the edge, then cut a hole in the center that measures between 3 1/2 to 4 inches in diameter. This will be your stencil for making the cones.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Move a rack to the middle of the oven, and place a silicone baking mat right on the countertop. It’s easier to use the stencil without the baking pan in the way.

A bit of butter and sugar, plus some whirring to whip it….

Beat butter and sugar. Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of a food processor, and whirr away. With just 4 tablespoons of butter, you’ll need to scrape down the sides of the bowl several times to make sure everything is mixed completely.

Add flour and salt. Pour the flour and salt over the butter mixture and pulse a few times to combine. Again, scrape down the bowl as needed.

Add egg white. With the processor running, pour in the egg white and process until you have a light batter. Scrape the sides of the bowl if necessary.

Spread. Place the stencil on your baking mat and spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons of batter in the center to make a circle. Use a straightedge, or an offset spatula to scrape off the excess batter. Make sure there are no holes in the batter, because this batter will not spread to fill them in. Remove the stencil and you should have a nice circle of batter. Make as many circles as will fit on the baking mat, leaving about 1/2 inch of space between each circle. Place the baking mat on a baking sheet.

Sprinkle. Sprinkle all the circles with sesame seeds to give them a bit of texture.

Bake. Slide the baking sheet into the oven for 4 minutes, or until the batter is set and the edges are a faint brown. The circles will ripple from underneath as moisture cooks off, making them seem as if they’re roiling on small waves.

Yes, the little pancakes are hot when you roll them around the molds. Be careful.

Roll. Remove the pan from the oven and place on a heatproof work surface. Working quickly, flip over a circle, place a cream horn mold on one side, and roll the small pancake around the horn, forming a cone. Turn the cone so the seam side is down. Continue with the remaining pancakes.

Once crisp, the cones will slide right off the molds and hold their shape. If the cones are still soft, a minute or two in the oven should crisp them right up.

Bake. Place the cones back into the oven for another 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown. Then, remove the cones from the molds they should just slip off. If needed, place the cones back in the oven to finish crisping, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Cool. Place the cones on paper towels to cool. Wipe the melted butter off the baking mats and allow them to cool before using the remaining batter.

Pipe and drizzle. Now for the fun part. Take that piping bag of whipped Brie and fill those cones. Then drizzle on 1 to 3 drops of the balsamic reduction so it looks like chocolate sauce.

As we expected, the recipe for these cones worked perfectly. And they were so tasty, light and crisp, slightly sweet and slightly salty. We thought that the cones paired well with the Brie and balsamic reduction plus, they were so cute and so much fun to eat. Sure, the cones were a bit of trouble to make, what with spreading the batter and rolling, but it wasn’t rocket science. Just some care while working. Plus, we figure that it’ll get even easier the next time (we’ll be making some more cones this weekend). Even with the extra effort, these cones are worthy of five stars.

Worth the trouble?

Love the pictures and the healthy foods. too bad the receipes are not easy to print out. Unless I am a real dummy. I see no printer user button Reply Cancel

Hi Marcia, I keep meaning to set up a “print recipe” kind of thing, but so far haven’t found a solution that I’m happy with in terms of look and something that fits in with the site. There’s always the old copy + paste onto a word processor maneuver until I get it all figured out. Thanks for your feedback! :)

For the past year or so I have been avidly reading your posts and using your recipes! I love your ethos, your recipes, your photos and your writing. But I have to finally comment that I DON’T love your new website. It takes SO much longer to load, has random adverts and this morning a film trailer covered most of the screen and kept popping up even though I had closed it several times. I understand you need some funding, but is there any way you could review this whole ad situation, it is totally distracting and undermines the great quality of what you are doing here? Reply Cancel

Hi Sophie,
Thanks for your comment and feedback. The decision to bring ads onto this site was a heavy one for me, and I’m still in the trial period of displaying them. Running a site like this with the level of work I put into it isn’t financially viable (to say the least) without ads/sponsored content. I am still very serious and passionate about the content that I present here. While I’m trying to figure it all out, I’ll see what I can do about slow-loading times. I get quite annoyed by those pop-up style ads that you mentioned, so I will look into this and see if it’s something I can put a stop to. I really am trying to meet in the middle on this and it’s all a work in progress.
Thanks again,

Now that you’ve won the So Delicious “Shake-Off,” perhaps you’d consider “veganizing” the remaining non-vegan recipes on your site? Hopefully participating in that competition helped you recognize that animal products never need to be a part of what we put in our bodies you can make delicious, nutritious, beautiful-looking food without harming other animals.

Thank you for this wonderful resource and all the great recipes! Reply Cancel

I can’t describe how happy I am to find this site – we started with the happy hour shake (yummy with kale instead of spinach) for breakfast and will no longer be struggling for inspiration, my daughters and I are all gluten intolerant and even though I can’t tolerate cow’s milk I’ve been struggling with converting to veganism… I don’t think it’ll be a problem now… thanks so much for sharing :) Reply Cancel

Hi! I’m so glad that I stumbled upon your lovely website. You see I just made 17 last week and I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 6 years old (by choice) i’m also lactose intolerant. Since i’m the only one in my very large family, so you can only imagine how difficult it is. I’m an extremely picky eater and I eat the same basic things, of pizza, pasta, rice, bread, and salad. I haven’t had much of an appetite from what i’m assuming i suppose i’m sick of eating the same things every single day and my doctor said I was on the verge of becoming an anorexic, so this helps alot. So thank you so much for this you’ve helped me out a great deal ^_^ Reply Cancel

Bree, I totally identify with your story and current predicament, and just stumbled across this website.. hoping that it helps us both and others, too :)

Hi, I was wondering if you’d be able to categorize your recipes by season? Reply Cancel

Hi Asher,
If you scroll to the bottom of any of my recipes (just before the comments section), you’ll see a heading that says “Filed in:” and there will be a list of categories. Within those categories, you’ll find the relevant seasons that the recipe applies to. From there, you can click on the season and you’ll get a page dedicated to all relevant seasonal recipes. Hope this helps!

Hi Laura!
I usually don’t buy cookbooks but honestly I absolutely want to make every recipe in your book. I love that you focus on cooking seasonally and simple recipes.

Laura! I am so happy that I found your recipes because I feel like you get exactly what kind of flavor combinations I love. I have come across several that I really wanted to try but when I click on them, it says the page cannot be found. Is this because you removed the link? Or is this just a technical error happening?

I love your food! Had made the tofu for the crispy squares then lost the recipe for the sauce. Can’t wait to make this. Your food just ISN’T the typical type of vegetarian that I remember from the 70s. This is seriously good food for anyone’s taste! Thank you, I’m dairy free, not by choice! 40 yrs. Am pretty much wheat free, but I found some Italian wheat that I can tolerate. Meat is just loosing its charm! I’ve been on the fench and this is pushing me to the good side! Reply Cancel

I don’t know how I found your website but I’m sure it was a blessing! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes with the world! Reply Cancel

Laura, I made a kale gazpacho yesterday that I thought was terrific. I went to your recipe index to see what you had in the way of chilled soups—but couldn’t spot any. I was surprised since your recipe offerings are so extensive. Not a fan of chilled soups? If that’s not the case I’d sure like to see one or two of your favourites.

Thanks so much for all your ideas, hard work, photos, etc. I love your food! Reply Cancel


How to Store a Balsamic Reduction

Once made, Balsamic Reduction will last for at least 3 months as long as you have it properly sealed in an air tight container and store it in the refrigerator. On a side note, if reduction hardens after being in refrigerator for too long just place the container in a bowl filled with warm water to heat up the reduction.


Balsamic Reduction

Ingredients

Instructions

We only needed a bit of reduction, but this recipe will scale up with ease.

You don’t need to use an expensive balsamic vinegar for this recipe. Just make sure that you like the taste of the vinegar you start with, since the flavor will only become more concentrated as it cooks down.

Also, if it turns out you like the reduction, you can easily scale up this recipe.

The reduction will be thick and syrupy enough that it will take awhile for it to fill in when you drag a spoon across the bottom of the pan.

Reduce. Measure the vinegar into a small non-reactive saucepan and place it over the lowest heat possible. You don’t want the vinegar to boil, so, if it does, you need to lower the temperature even further. If the stove is as low as it can go, you might place the saucepan inside a dry heavy-bottomed skillet that will act as a heat diffuser. Once the temperature is correct, let the vinegar reduce, swirling the pan from time to time, until the vinegar is thick and syrupy, anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes, or longer. When reduced, the amount of liquid should be somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 the original amount.

Transfer. Pour the reduction into a small sealable container to store.

We tasted this when it was done, and, wow, we were hit with a blast of complex flavor. Enough that it almost made us sputter and cough. The flavor is sort of like sweet and sour, but with a lot of other indescribable nuances tossed in for good measure. It really did make us wish that we had a bit of melon or strawberries to try with the reduction. Fortunately, we just moved on to the next part of our appetizer, but you, of course, have to wait until Thursday for the next installment.

How To Make Snoek Pâté with Spicy Stewed Apricots

Firstly get busy with the sweet and sticky Stewed Apricots. Simply add all the ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil to reduce a little. It needs to cook down to an almost sticky jam consistency. Yum!

Meanwhile, you can prepare the pâté. Leftover snoek is perfect for this recipe. Otherwise, you can prepare yours by cooking it in the oven until flaky. Next you basically blend the pâté ingredients in a food processor by pulsing it until it&rsquos all combined in a paste.

Most importantly, since we are all about saving that extra hour or two, prepare these before the big event and keep in ramekins in the fridge until use.
