Elizabeth, the Jumbal Queen — koolkosherkitchen

The Great Elizabeth, the last Tudor, had a major sweet tooth. To be fair, she was not the only one. Food has always served to demonstrate and affirm status, and the royals of all times have asserted wealth and power by consuming the most luxurious and exotic comestibles of their epoch. Luckily for Elizabeth the […]

Beouf Bourgingoin

Ingredients for 4 to 6 people: 
 1 kg of beef (chuck, for example) cut into cubes 
 2 big sliced onions 
 6 carrots cut into slices 
 1 cube of beef broth diluted in 15cl of water with a bouquet garni 
 150g sliced Paris mushrooms 
 200g smoked diced bacon 
 1 liter of red wine, Bordeaux for me … 
 2 tablespoons flour 
 A few sprigs of chopped fresh parsley 
 1 tablespoon of butter 

1. In a casserole, brown bacon and add carrots, onions, and mushrooms. When the onions are translucent, remove from the pan and set aside. 

2. In the same casserole, melt the butter and add the beef cubes. Once seized, make a roux by adding the flour. Stir well and add the carrots, onions, and mushrooms. Add the broth, then the wine. It is necessary that during all the cooking, the liquid covers the whole contents of the casserole. 

3. Cook for 2 to 2½ hours, depending on the size of the cubes of beef. Add the parsley ½ hour before the end of cooking. 

I often stop cooking at 1:30, let cool, then resume cooking 1:30. I find intensifies the flavors of the dish and makes the meat even more tender. 

Well, nothing complicated for a result always amazing.

Raspberry Clafoutis

½ c. all-purpose flour
¼ c. sugar
2 tbsp. sugar
3 large eggs
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
¼ c. milk
2 tbsp. milk
1½ pt. raspberries
confectioners’ sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch gratin dish. In a bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Whisk in the eggs, butter, and lemon zest until smooth. Add the milk and whisk until light and very smooth, about 3 minutes. Pour the batter into the gratin dish and top with the raspberries.
Bake for about 30 minutes, until the clafoutis is set and golden. Let cool slightly. Dust with confectioners’ sugar, cut into wedges, and serve.

Lettuce & Asparagus Soup

I adopted this recipe from the French “Soupe verte a la creme” version.


1 large head lettuce or a bag of mixed lettuce greens
1 medium onion, chopped
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 bunch of asparagus, chopped
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1/2 cup sour cream


Rinse your lettuce and, if you are using a head of lettuce, chop the lettuce.

Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Add lettuce and cook until wilted, stirring occasionally.

Add asparagus, broth, water, salt, and pepper and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes. At this point, it looks like unappetizing seaweed, but stick with it.

Purée soup in batches in a blender with dill and cream. (Note: I initially tried blending the soup with my immersion blender as this tends to be a little less messy for me since I am a total klutz. Unfortunately, because I used mixed lettuce that had small stems, I ended up with a stringy tangle of lettuce around the blade. Use the blender and save yourself from having to de-string your immersion blade.)

Klim Tart

Klim is a brand of powdered milk sold by Nestlé. Klim is sold worldwide.

I never heard of Klim, I will have to try this one for my next dinner party, as dessert.
Klim was developed as a dehydrated whole-milk powder for use in the tropics, where ordinary milk tended to spoil quickly. Turn it around and what do you get? KLIM = MILK
