  • Chicken Grape Salad

    Margaret reverse engineered this salad after eating it at the Capers Restaurant on Marine Drive. I have since discovered that it was first created by Constance Spry for the Queen's Coronation lunch in 1953. There are now dozens of variations to be found on the internet.

    Alternate: Swap out the curry powder and lime juice for fresh dill, fresh parsley, 1 tablespoon dijon mustard, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • Chorizo Sausage and Manchego Cheese Tortilla

    This substantial tortilla is delicious hot or cold. Cut it into chunky wedges and serve for supper or a light lunch with a fresh tomato and basil salad. The addition of spicy chorizo and tangy cheese gives it a wonderful, rich flavor.

  • Panzanella

    This is a traditional Tuscan bread and tomato salad devised to use up stale leftover bread. It started out as peasant food as it was cheap to make and also filling.

  • Moroccan Beef Tagine

    Nice subtle spicing.

  • Apricot Chicken

    One of our favourite chicken recipes. Lots of complex flavors going on. Fairly simple and fast for a weeknight meal, but also a good anchor for a fancy meal.

  • Beef Tacos

    Beef tacos are fun to put together and delicious to eat. Fill the tortillas with lettuce and beef, then each person can add his or her favorite toppings.

  • Green Goddess Dressing

    Green Goddess was invented in the 20s, by the chef at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, to commemorate the actor George Arliss and his play, The Green Goddess.

  • Mozzarella, Ham, and Basil Panini

    A grown-ups cheese sandwich lunch

Dutch Cream of Mustard Soup -- Zaansemosterdsoep
Posted On: 22 Mar 2020
On our first trip to Holland, we tasted this soup at the Goude Karp and grokked it. This year, we returned, only to find it off the menu. However on our last day in Amsterdam, we found a great version on the menu of the Omval restaurant.
