sides to enclose it, brushing the edges of the dough with some egg
white to seal them. Fold the ends of the dough over the fillet and
seal with the egg white. Transfer the fillet, seam side down, to a
jelly-roll pan and brush the dough with egg wash. Roll out additional
dough and cut out shapes with which to decorate the dough. After
applying, brush with egg wash. Chill for at least 1 hour and up to 2

1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup peach schnapps
1 1/2 cup heavy cream, well chilled
0

Peach syrup:
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup peach schnapps
0
Peach Glaze:
1 1/4 tsp unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup peach preserves or jam
3 Tbsp peach schnapps

DIRECTIONS ------------------------------------------------------------

Halve, pit, and chop nectarines and, in a heavy saucepan, combine them
with sugar and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, stirring, and cook it
at a slow boil, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. In a food
processor, puree the mixture and force it through a fine sieve into a
large bowl, pressing hard on the solids.

In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over the lemon juice and
schnapps, let it soften for 5 minutes, then heat mixture over low
heat, stirring, until gelatin has dissolved. Stir gelatin into
nectarine puree, blending the mixture well. Let it cool to room
temperature.

In a chilled bowl, beat the cream until it holds soft shapes, (not as
stiff as soft peaks) and fold it into the nectarine mixture.

Trim the Genoise and cut it into three layers, horizonally.

Peach Syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and 1/4 cup
water. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved, and stir
in the schnapps. Let the syrup cool to room temperature.
Assembly: Center one layer in the bottom of a 9-1/2-inch
springform pan and brush with half the peach syrup. Pour half the
mousse over the cake and top it with another layer of Genoise. Brush
with the remaining peach syrup and pour the remaining mousse over the
cake, rapping on the side of the pan to expel any air bubbles and
smoothing the surface. Chill for 2 hours, or until it is set.

Peach Glaze: In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 3 Tbsp cold
water and let it soften for 5 minutes. In a small saucepan, combine
the preserves and schnapps, bring mixture to a boil, stirring, and
simmer it for 1 minute. Remove pan from heat, add gelatin mixture,
stirring until gelatin is dissolved, and strain the mixture through a
fine sieve into a bowl, pressing hard on the solids.

Assembly: Pour all but about 2 Tbsp of Peach Glaze over top of
the mousse cake, covering it completely, and chill the cake for 2
hours, or until glaze is set.

While cake is chilling, in a food processor, grind the remaining
Genoise layer into fine crumbs. Toast the crumbs in a jelly-roll pan
in a preheated 350f oven for 5-8 minutes or until they are golden.
Reserve.

Cut half the nectarine into thin slices, and arrange them decoratively
on top of the cake in a pinwheel pattern. Brush the remaining glaze
over the nectarine slices and chill the cake, covered, for 1 hour, or
until the newly applied glaze is set.

Run a thin knife around the edge of the pan and remove the side of the
pan. Working over a sheet of wax paper, coat sides of cake with the

2 1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortening, cold, cut into pieces
0
Pie Filling:
14 1/2 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp flour
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp lemon zest
2 1/2 lb apples (Granny Smiths, of course)
1 tsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into bits
1 Tbsp half&half
0
Honey Spiced Whipped Cream:
3/4 cup heavy cream, well chilled
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp nutmeg

DIRECTIONS ------------------------------------------------------------

In a bowl, stir together flour and salt. Add shortening and blend

fork. Form dough into a ball, flatten it slightly, dust with flour
and chill it, wrapped in wax paper, for 1 hour.

Divide dough into 2 pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Chill
the larger piece, wrapped in wax paper. Roll out the other, 1/8-inch
thick on a floured surface, and fit it to a 9-inch pie plate, and trim
the edge leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Chill the pie shell while
making the filling.

In a large bowl, stir together 14 Tbsp sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg,
ginger, salt, and zest. Peel, quarter, and core the apples; slice
thinly, crosswise, and add them to the sugar mixture, tossing to coat
well. Mound the apple mixture in the pie shell, sprinkle with lemon
juice and dot with butter.

Roll out the larger piece of dough to a 13 or 14-inch round on a
floured surface and drape it over the filling. Trim top crust,
leaving a 1-inch overhang. Fold overhang under bottom crust, pressing
the edge to seal it. Crimp the edge decoratively with a fork. Make
slits in the top crust to form steam vents. Brush with h&h and
sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

Bake pie in lower third of a preheated 425f oven for 15 minutes,
reduce heat to 375f and bake for 40-45 minutes more, or until filling
is bubbling and crust is golden. Transfer pie to a rack to cool.

In a chilled bowl, beat cream with the honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg
until it holds soft peaks. Transfer to a serving dish.

7 Tbsp unsalted butter
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup carrots, finely chopped
3/4 cup celery, finely chopped
1 tsp garlic, minced
4 cup beef broth
1 1/2 cup plum tomatoes, chopped
bouquet garni
1/2 tsp salt
- -
Gremolata:
1/2 cup fresh parlsey, minced
2 Tbsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp garlic, minced

DIRECTIONS ------------------------------------------------------------

Season the veal shanks with salt and pepper and dredge in the flour,
shaking off excess. In a heavy skillet, heat 3 Tbsp butter and 3 Tbsp
oil over mod-high heat. Brown the veal shanks, adding additional
butter and oil if necessary. Transfer the shanks as they are browned
to a platter.
Add wine to the skillet, boil the mixture, deglazing the pan, until
the liquid is reduced to about a half cup. Reserve in a small bowl.
In a flameproof casserole just large enough to hold the veal shanks in
one layer, cook the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic in the
remaining 4 Tbsp butter over mod-low heat, stirring occasionally,
until the veggies are softened. Add the shanks and any accumulated
juices to the casserole. Add the wine mixture, and enough broth to
almost cover the shanks.
Spread the tomatoes over the shanks, add the bouquet garni (6 fresh
parsley sprigs, 4 fresh thyme sprigs, 1 bay leaf) and salt and pepper
to taste. Bring the liquid to a simmer over moderately high heat.
Braise the mixture, covered, in the middle of a preheated 325f oven
for 2 hours, or until the veal is tender. Transfer the veal to an
ovenproof serving dish with a slotted spoon. Discard the strings and
keep the shanks warm.
Strain pan juices into a saucepan, pressing hard on the solids. Skim
off the fat. Boil for about 15 minutes or until reduced to about 3
cups. Baste the shanks in some of the reduced juices, and bake them,
basting 3-4 more times, for 10 minutes or until the shanks are glazed.


In a bowl, stir together the parsley, zest, and garlic. Sprinkle the
shanks with the gremolata and pour some juice around and over them.
Serve the remaining juices alongside in a boat.

In a bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they hold
soft peaks. Add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, one Tbsp at a time, and
beat the meringue until it just hold stiff peaks. Stir a quarter of
the meringue into the lemon mixture and fold in the remaining meringue
gently but thoroughly.

Transfer the tart shells to a baking sheet and fill with the lemon
mixture, mounding it slightly. Bake the tarts in the middle of a

preheated 400f oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the tops are golden
and puffed. Transfer the tarts to a rack and let them cool.

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.
