Here are some of our favourite seasonal recipes.

Fall Brodo

Fall Brodo

A short list of ingredients and a whole lot of flavour. What's not to love? This delectable soup hits all the right notes for early autumn. But then, I love all the recipes in Betty Rosbottom's Sunday Soup. They're divinely delicious. The cookbook is from 2008;...

Roasted Beet and Squash Salad with Gorgonzola Cheese

Roasted Beet and Squash Salad with Gorgonzola Cheese

Squash and pumpkins abound. They're piled up everywhere in farmer's markets, a sure sign of fall. Technically, they are fruits, not vegetables, because the seeds are inside, I was solemnly informed by Maddie and Juliana this week. However they're classified, they're...

Poached Pear Pistachio Tart

Poached Pear Pistachio Tart

Earlier this month, we invited some friends over for dinner at the Cape, and I wanted to make a dessert that was somewhat virtuous but with a hint of decadence. (The nearly universal donning of the January culinary hair-shirt gets a bit depressing). I thought about...

Sausage Stuffing with Celery, Cranberries and Apple

Sausage Stuffing with Celery, Cranberries and Apple

This is the stuffing I traditionally make for our Christmas Eve dinner. This year, I finally took the time to measure the proportions rather than just plough ahead and make it by instinct, as is my wont. Its longevity on the family favourites list is likely...

Black Walnut Manhattan

Black Walnut Manhattan

The Glass Onion is one of our favourite restaurants on the Cape. They don’t accept reservations, and we often sit on the screened in patio and enjoy a liquid refreshment while waiting for our table. This is no particular hardship, as their cocktail and wine list is as excellent as their food. Their Black Walnut Manhattan caught my husband’s eye, and he is pleased to report that it is as delicious as it sounds.

Cranberry Chutney

Cranberry Chutney

Preparations for Thanksgiving dinner have begun!  In the spirit of trying to get as much done ahead of time as possible, Cranberry Chutney is at the top of the list. I usually double or treble the recipe, and then we have enough for Christmas, too. It keeps for...

Enjoy our travel journal of castles, cathedrals, country houses, wonderful tableware and delicious meals.

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

As cathedrals go, Ely Cathedral is one of the biggies. Literally, at 537 ft long, but also because of its story, which began in 672.  A lot has happened in the intervening 13+ centuries. Not just the usual political squabbling and overly ambitious clerics, but...

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Most of the grand manor houses we see in England have a history involving a lot of ups and downs. Sudeley Castle is the veritable Snakes & Ladders of the genre. The tale began innocuously enough with a commonplace event: William le Boteler of Wem married heiress...

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

St. Malo, a town in Brittany on the northwestern coast of France, has some of the biggest tides in Europe. They can vary more than 40 feet from low tide to open sea, as you can see from views of the national fort, which becomes isolated at high tide. St. Malo is just...

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Visting Herculaneum was one of the highlights of our recent cruise to Croatia, Montenegro, and Italy. Remember when people went on cruises and emerged unscathed, having actually enjoyed themselves? Neither do I, except I know it happened. As recently as October....

Entertablement Abroad – Burford & Chipping Campden

Entertablement Abroad – Burford & Chipping Campden

Let's do a little armchair travelling to the beautiful Cotswold villages of Burford and Chipping Campden. Like many people, we have postponed our overseas trips for now; I'll use the found time to catch up on photos of past trips and let the world gradually come to...
