Jambalaya, they call it a peasant’s dish. A one dish meal made from a bit pf chicken, a couple of links of sausage, whatever seafood you have on hand, an onion, a couple of tomatoes, a pepper or two, Cajun…
Rosemary Apple Glazed Chicken with Dried Cranberries and Bacon Polenta. Perfect on a dark & stormy early autumn evening, as temperatures drop and comfort food comes to mind.
Easter at Chez Gypsy, by Chef B: green salad topped with seared duck breast, truffled potatoes & mushrooms, sometimes it's the simplest of meals that make the most memorable moments.
Yea, that just happened, I made a waffle out of leftover stuffing and served a turkey sandwich on it, that's how white trash I am. Christmas 2011; the year of the Stuffing Waffle Turkey Sandwich. Straight out of the Gypsy Kitchen.
The Smoked Gouda Duck Confit Grilled Cheese is a standard casual entertaining food around here. One of Chef B’s little treasures; it’s savory and smoky with just a hint of salty, buttery toasted-ness, and always a big hit. Now it can be a big hit in your house.
Who says Thanksgiving has to be all about turkey? It’s your Thanksgiving, make your own rules (you rebel you). What says Fall Feast in your kitchen? You’re not bound by convention, you're a freethinker. (But, just in case we've got you covered on that whole How To Cook a Turkey thing.)
Sometimes it’s the simplest things that strike a cord. Like this pretty little Thai Sweet Chili Chicken. Didn’t intend to post because two ingredients; “chicken” and “jar o’ sauce” does not a “recipe” make, but it's a solid thecnique for the grill and using it, you'll get beautiful results every time.
Cold rice vermicelli salad with bright fresh veg, dressed in a lime, rice wine vinaigrette, (totally delish) chicken satay, finished with peanut sauce. Authenticity and intensity. Eat goooooood.
Bollywood Week continues here at Food Gypsy with some spicy dishes from India, from my kitchen to yours. Staring off with a little Mango Chicken Curry.
It's cold and flu season; sniffles and sore throats and sick days. Some nasty little bug bit me hard this weekend which meant cough syrup and pajama time. Nothing quite so sexy as a fever. Oh yea, I'm hot Baby! *cough, cough, cough* Time for a big bowl of nature's remedy... chicken soup.
