Chef Jason Hill of www.CookingSessions.com shares his very best lobster roll recipe in this episode of Chef Suggestions. This lobster salad roll utilizes just a tiny quantity of mayo due to the fact you genuinely want the lobster meat alone to glow. Some lobster roll recipes get in touch with for sizzling canine buns as the base, but this model dresses it up with a Mexican bolillo roll. Lobster rolls are well-liked in Nova Scotia and New England, particularly in Maine, Cape Cod, Boston and New York Metropolis. I hope you get pleasure from my recipe for lobster rolls! Jason’s Lobster Roll Recipe eleven.3 oz. Lismore lobster meat, thawed and drained 2 clean bolillo rolls (or 4 sizzling pet buns) one stalk of celery, finely diced one tablespoons chopped chives one teaspoon chopped new tarragon Kosher salt and new cracked pepper Grated lemon zest (peel), for garnish Lobster Roll Sauce one/4 cup mayonnaise one-2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice 1-two dashes Tabasco sauce (optional) Mix elements for sauce. Chop lobster meat into big chunk-sized items. Gently fold sauce into lobster meat. Add celery, chives, tarragon and salt and pepper. Fold carefully, just to combine. Chill, protected for one hour. Toast rolls and distribute generously with butter. Best cold lobster salad combination on rolls, and best with much more chives and tarragon. Appreciate with salt and vinegar potato chips or thinly-reduce French fries. Serves 2-four (depending on portion measurement) Inventive commons tunes: Jason Shaw at www.Audionautix.com

Ina at Her Best,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust (Hardcover)I own all of Ina Garten's cookbooks. I am amazed by how simple she makes cooking seem and every year around Thanksgiving, I start sorting through her recipes and planning my Thanksgiving menu. She delivers top notch results without much fuss, and I think she is probably my favorite long time Food Network personality.
Foolproof is a cookbook that seems to revolve around mistake proof entertaining. When Ina says "foolproof" she doesn't mean a recipe has only five ingredients or that it has only three steps. Ina means she has an ingredient list with easily obtainable ingredients and steps that appeal to your common sense so that you don't worry about whether the recipe will turn out. She tells you what to look for so that you know when each recipe is perfectly done.
She lists ten foolproof tips for cooking. Other chapters include: cocktails; starters; lunch; dinner; vegetables; and desserts. She also gives you 12 foolproof tips for table settings with photographs which help you out if, like me, making a table setting look polished but simple is something you need a little help with. She finishes the book with a foolproof index of menus for special occasions which cross references with special dishes from all of her cookbooks.
She does repeat foolproof recipes from her previous books such as her standard chicken stock, but the book is mostly comprised of new material. I have seen some complaints that some of her ingredients are just too much of a splurge. I like to look at her recipes from a couple of perspectives. She lives in the Hamptons, and ingredients such as lobster are a local, easy-to-obtain natural part of her repertoire. Also, these recipes seem to mostly have an emphasis on entertaining and many of us don't mind splurging a little for a special occasion. She typically will tell you where to source the occasional not so common ingredient such as truffle butter. I'm not certain why anyone would expect budget recipes out of someone who has never been known for them at any point in her career.
This cookbook is the same sturdy hardback that the rest of her classic cookbooks are fashioned in. Her cookbook has wonderful photography and stays open with no help, a real perk if you like to actively cook or don't own a cookbook stand.
I enjoy all of Ina's recipes but have always felt she has a rare gift to make vegetables shine. Her sweet potato puree is very simple to prepare but is full of nice nuances in flavor. I have been using her roasted carrot recipe for over a year now and am delighted to see that she has mixed it up with a recipe for braised carrots and parsnips.She presents a mashed chickpea recipe that is yummy. I will be serving up her chocolate chunk blondie recipe regularly (a neat twist on the chocolate chip cookie). The raspberry shortbread bars are buttery, flavor-filled, and exceptional. Expect food that you turn to when you want to make a delicious impression at a holiday dinner, special occasion, or because you love impressing friends and coworkers with yumminess.
I think her cookbooks consistently get better and become more user friendly with each book. I am excited to test drive this book throughout the holiday season.

Just in Time for the Holidays, Recipes You Can Really Use!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust (Hardcover)This book focuses on fall entertaining with a Mediterranean flair, my favorite season and cuisine style, and includes several holiday recipes. I enjoy cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients and lots of olive oil, but appreciate the good shortcut. Here's a few quick recipes I've tried:
Spanish Pea Soup with Crispy Ham: Made with frozen peas and Spanish serrano ham or prosciutto, it's quick, savory, comfort food.
Endive, Orange & Roquefort Salad: I love good vinaigrette! This one has orange juice and zest, perfect with the roasted walnuts and roquefort.
Lobster Corn Fritters: My favorite restaurant used to serve rock shrimp fritters and in all honesty, I substituted shrimp here because I miss them so much. I can only imagine how amazing these are with lobster. Surprisingly easy. In fact, the most complicated recipe in the book is a two-page Jambalaya.
For the holidays, Ina's included Balsamic-Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Orange-Braised Carrots & Parsnips, Truffled Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom & Leek Bread Pudding (which she recommends instead of stuffing, so it won't get soggy), and what looks like a truly foolproof turkey recipe. A couple of beautiful fish recipes too: Sicilian Grilled Swordfish and Salmon with Melting Cherry Tomatoes.
The desert photos made my mouth water and the classics are all there: Ultimate Pumpkin Pie with Rum Whipped Cream, Pecan Sandies, Perfect Pound Cake, plus something called Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs (too much).
This is just a sampling, so it looks like I'll be in the kitchen this weekend. Can't wait! Based on the book's quality, a complete read-through of all the recipes, and my few try-outs, this just might be my favorite outing of The Barefoot Contessa series.

This review is from: Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust (Hardcover)Ina Garten is nationally-known as a cook and TV Host, who became successful for her specialty food store in the Hamptons, and her TV series. While living in Long Island, New York, 45 years, I followed her footsteps in her lifestyle through Reviews and praise. May I add, to be successful in the Hamptons, one requires Outstanding Reviews with a Great reputation indeed! "BAREFOOT CONTESSA FOOLPROOF" is remarkable and delightful. A fun-filled cookbook, packed with delicious recipes, and invaluable cooking tips. In addition, the author provides 150 colorful, stunning photos that aim to please. Ina Garten guides you through Foolproof plans to keep the food hot for serving, fabulous lunch and dinner recipes, tasty delights, and mouth-watering desserts. My favorite recipes are her lobster and potato salad, and her sensational brownies. However, there is a huge selection for dinners, cakes, sauce and more. She offers recipes on seafood, beef, salads, and yummy treats. Each recipe is simple, and easy-to-read. A wonderful gift idea for any cook. Highly Recommended!
