"An artfully arranged platter of beets, cheese and brittle is a sexy side dish so sweet and delicious that you could almost choose to serve it for dessert."
Stuffing is a personal thing. I like this recipe from my friend Laird Saunderson because I love fruit stuffing with turkey. If you are more traditional, replace the apples with a pound of crumbled sausage meat, and use chopped fresh sage instead of tarragon.
For the best results, use slightly stale bread. Challah or egg bread makes an excellent stuffing.
Place any extra stuffing in a greased baking dish and bake, covered, for an hour at 375°F.
One of our favourite dishes from Camille and Michael's wedding. Frying the potatoes and cauliflower is a long process, but it's worth it!
The tarka this time is of cumin and mustard seeds, but they provide only the background taste. It is the tomato-cream sauce, flavored with the aromatic garam masala, that provides for the main flavors in this dish.
