These elegant and unusual tamales are celebration-worthy! The masa dough may be made up to three days in advance, and the sauce may be made earlier in the day and gently re-warmed. It can be fun to have guests help fill, fold and tie the tamales—or you can get them ready several hours ahead and steam them just before serving.
Not all deviled eggs are made the same way. These luxurious version of the standard appetizer uses lobster meat and truffle salt to elevate the classic dish. The addition of the Parmesan crisp may seem like gilding the lily but they are so easy to make that you might as well go all out and make them for a stunning presentation and nibbly bite.
Nothing impresses a Christmas dinner crowd like a beautifully glazed roasted goose. Though it may seem daunting to make, roasting a goose is actually easier than roasting a turkey because it doesn’t require any brining ahead of time. The key roasting a goose is to pierce the skin all over with a needle or sharp knife to make sure the layer of fat under the goose skin renders out, leaving a super crisp skin. Be sure to save the goose fat for a later use like roasted potatoes. It’s liquid gold!
Making a potato galette is an easy way to impress. With a quick cook on the stovetop to jump start the cooking and a longer bake time in the oven, the outer potatoes get crispy brown while the inner potatoes are soft and luscious. The hardest part of the whole thing is flipping it over onto a platter!
This stunning holiday cake is a fun weekend project. Each component can be made separately and refrigerated ahead of time, which makes assembling the cake fairly easy. The ermine frosting is an old fashioned cooked flour frosting which is a soft mellow frosting that complements the tart cranberry filling.
This easy side dish requires very little prep work, just scrubbing the carrots, mincing some rosemary and slicing some shallots. You can definitely make these with regular orange carrots but if you can find rainbow carrots (often available at upscale grocery stores or natural food stores) definitely try them out, as they add a splash of fun color to the table.
