My good friend and chef Chris Cosentino made a version of these for me when I visited him at his restaurant Incanto in San Francisco. It was so warm, delicious and thoughtful, it was like a hug from his kitchen.
The salty bacon and sour cherries add a great element of flavor to these roasted Brussels sprouts.
The key trick here is not to over mix. Even the best gravy can’t mask a gluey texture.
This meal comes from Durban, South Africa, where Indian indentured servants created it. The South African Indian community began in 1860, when Indians were imported as laborers for the sugar cane fields in Port Natal. These days, South Africa is home to the largest population of Indians outside of India and their influence on South Africa’s cuisine is ever present. Some stories about the origin of this dish say that the workers needed a lunch that they could carry to the fields so they created a meal by using a big piece of bread, hollowing it out and filling it with a curry and meat. It’s quite a dry curry, so if you use a crusty loaf of bread, it won’t soak through the crust as you bring it to the table. (I suggest that you use the inside of the loaf to make bread pudding.)
A great, fibrous salad for any occasion, I prepared this salad for a special Ralph Lauren Instagram Mini Series to go with the Pan Seared Lake Trout. Since this salad tastes better with some time, you can prepare this first and let the flavors marry while you sear the fish.
In conjunction with a Ralph Lauren Instagram Video Series for “How to Cook”, I was asked to offer tips on how to prepare this lake trout recipe. Fresh fish straight out of the water is best, but if you don’t happen to fish for food, just head to your fish monger and get the best piece of trout or arctic char you can get. Serve with Raw Kale Salad for the perfect meal!
