Like I wrote in my review for this Quince Paste recipe, I love quince. I love them so much—and they’re so hard to find most of the time in the U.S.—that we planted a quince tree in our yard. This was the first year that our tree produced a bumper crop, so I was thrilled to be… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a professionally trained baker/pastry chef and also, as a friend would say, an intrepid eater. My favorite foodie character in literature? Ben Gunn, the marooned pirate in "Treasure Island": "You mightn't happen to have a piece of cheese about you, now? No? Well, many's the long night I've dreamed of cheese—toasted, mostly—and woke up again, and here I were."
My favorite things to cook
Laminated doughs. Elaborate dishes that require a day of prep work. Comfort foods, spicy foods, all kinds of food. (Although I am also happy eating a bowl of cereal.)

Chef John's Cheese Blintzes
Fantastic summer brunch. I made the blintzes the night before (put them in a greased baking dish, covered with plastic wrap, in the fridge overnight) then finished them the next morning. I also had to modify the filling to use what I had on hand: I used 2 cups cottage cheese instead of ricotta and cottage cheese. I mixed the filling in the food processor. I served them topped with raspberry sauce and fresh blackberries. Next time, I’m doubling the crepe recipe—I had extra filling, and you can always find ways to eat extra crepes! Oh: I got 12 crepes from the single batch of batter, but tore the first one until I got my pan temp right. I ate that one plain. Delicious!

Daffodil Cake
I loved this! Such a simple cake, and very pretty. I didn’t frost it—just dusted the top with powdered sugar and served with whipped cream and strawberries. I used orange zest instead of orange extract.

Risotto all' Amanda
This recipe didn't work so well for us. The covered-bowl-on-steamer-rack method in the pressure cooker didn't work at all, so we ended up having to finish the rice in a saucepan. Also: three tablespoons of garlic is insane. I love saffron risotto, and I love porcini risotto—but somehow, these two lovely flavorful ingredients cancelled each other out. And then shrimp adds a whole other competing flavor.
