Sugar  Scribe 2


SUGAR & SCRIBE BAKERY

Memories of her Irish grandmother’s roasted Brussels sprouts inspired chef-owner Maeve Rochford of Sugar & Scribe Bakery in Pacific Beach to create this savory vegetarian pie. Always on the menu, it has proved popular with men who don’t equate its nutty goodness with “eating their vegetables,” she says.


Brussels Sprouts and Pecan Pie


For the pastry

1/4 c. butter, ice cold

1/4 c. margarine, ice cold

1 t. sugar

Pinch of salt

5 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. ice water


For the filling

3 c. whole Brussels sprouts

1 T. olive oil

1/8 c. onion, chopped

1/8 c. celery, chopped

1 T. capers

Zest of one lemon

1/4 t. salt

1/4 t. white pepper

1/4 t. black pepper

2 T. brown sugar

1/3 c. pecan pieces, broken

1 T. salted butter, room temperature

1/4 c. raw Yukon gold potato, finely chopped


For the egg wash

1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 t. of water


Chop butter into small pieces. Place it in a bowl with the margarine, sugar, salt and flour. Using your fingers, feather the butter and margarine into the dry ingredients until the mixture looks like loose breadcrumbs.


Mix in the ice water until just combined. Form the dough into a ball and chill for 2 hours.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll Brussels sprouts in olive oil and place in a castiron or other ovenproof pan. Roast for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. (Can be made in advance and refrigerated.)


Sauté onion and celery until tender.


Put the cooled Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Gently fold in remaining filling ingredients, taking care not to mash the vegetables.


Butter a 10-inch pie pan. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide into two portions: 11.5 oz. and 3 oz. (Extra pastry can

be frozen for another use.) Roll the large portion into a 13-inch-diameter circle. Place in pie pan with dough overlapping the edges.


Place filling in dough and roll out remaining dough for a top crust. Place over filling and crimp edges. Using a knife, cut 4 or 5 vents in the top crust. Brush the crust with egg wash.


Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees, until crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven, cut into slices and serve.


Suggested beverage: Guinness or dark chocolate stout

“Who doesn’t love bacon and eggs?” asks Executive Chef Matt Gordon rhetorically. At his new Sea & Smoke brasserie in Del Mar, he gives spinach a sweet and savory twist. “Plus,” he says, “you meet your salad quota while eating it.” Enjoy this with a warm baguette for an elegant lunch.


Warm Spinach Salad

Serves 1

For the vinaigrette:

1/2 c. natural bacon, chopped

2 shallots, roughly chopped

1/4 c. Dijon mustard

1/2 c. red wine vinegar

1/4 c. honey

1/4 t. ground black pepper

1 1/2 c. grapeseed or other light oil

For the salad:

1/2 c. chopped bacon, cooked

3-4 c. organic baby spinach (Bloomsdale

Savoy, if possible)

1/2 c. dried figs, quartered

1/4 c. shaved Parmesan

1 warm poached egg


Toss the bacon and shallots in a touch of oil and sauté until soft and hot. Add mustard, vinegar, honey and pepper and stir to combine. Let cool. Place cooled mixture in a blender. With the blender on high, add the oil in a slow, steady stream. The vinaigrette can be made in advance and stored up to five days in the refrigerator.


To make the salad, place 2 to 3 oz. of the vinaigrette and the bacon in a wok. Place on the stove over medium heat to warm. Add spinach and figs and toss for about 15 seconds until the spinach is wilting a bit. Transfer salad to a bowl, top with the shaved cheese and poached egg and serve immediately.


Suggested pairing: Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve Champagne or other sparkling wine

Hilton-Garden-Inn-Carlsbad


CARLSBAD BEACH BISTRO

Throughout the summer, Executive Chef Aaron Arko showcases cheesy ravioli burst-ing with crab on Friday pasta nights at the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach Bistro.

Three-Cheese Crab Ravioli

Serves 6

For crab stuffing:

1 16 oz. can pasteurized jumbo lump crab meat

1 5.2 oz. package of Boursin with garlic and herbs

1/4 c. ricotta

1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan

1 T. fresh lemon juice

Lemon zest from 1 lemon

Pinch kosher salt and ground pepper

For pesto:

2 c. fresh basil leaves

1 c. fresh Italian parsley

4 garlic cloves

1/2 c. grated Parmesan

Kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

1 c. extra virgin olive oil, divided use

For ravioli:

8 fresh pasta sheets, 9 in. by 11 in. (available at Italian specialty stores)

2 eggs, lightly beaten with 1 t. water

Freshly grated Parmesan

Combine all stuffing ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Put the first five pesto ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Add half the oil and purée. With the motor running, drizzle in the remaining oil.

Lay four of the pasta sheets on a lightly floured work surface. Spoon 1 oz. of crab filling about 3 inches apart on the sheets. There should be six mounds of filling per sheet.

Brush the egg wash between the filling mounds. Place the remaining pasta sheets on top and gently press down around the filling.

Cut out the individual ravioli and firmly crimp the edges together with your fingers. Place on a floured pan and freeze for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water with a dash of olive oil to a gentle boil. Drop in the ravioli and cook 3-4 minutes or until they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon.

To serve, place four ravioli in a warmed pasta bowl. Top with pesto and Parmesan.

Suggested beverage pairing: Pinot Grigio

Kitchen-4140

KITCHEN 4140

“I LOVE USING vinaigrettes instead of heavier sauces in the summer and lighter fats like olive oil and avocado for richness,” says Chef Kurt Metzger of Kitchen 4140. “The acidity of the vinaigrette goes great with the smoky, sweet flavor of grilled fish and onions.”

Wild Striped Bass with Tomato, Avocado and Grilled Vidalia Onions and Basil-Lime Vinaigrette

Serves 6

2 large Vidalia onions, each cut into 1-inch-thick slices (about 5 or 6 slices each)

1/4 c. olive oil, plus more for brushing fish

3 t. kosher salt, divided use

2 1/2 t. freshly ground black pepper, divided use

4 large, ripe heirloom tomatoes, each cored and cut into 1-inch-thick slices

4 ripe Haas avocados, halved, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

1 c. fresh lime juice

1 c. extra-virgin olive oil

2/3 c. chiffonade of fresh basil leaves

6 6-oz. wild striped bass fillets

3 c. fresh arugula

Preheat grill to high heat (400-450 degrees). Arrange onion slices on a baking sheet and brush lightly with oil. Season lightly with 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Grill onion 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until tender and slightly charred.

Transfer onion to a mixing bowl and separate the rings. Add tomato and avocado and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil and basil. Toss with the onion mixture and season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Allow the salad to marinate at room temperature 10 to 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. This allows the avocados to break down a little and slightly thicken the vinaigrette.

Season fish fillets on both sides with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper. Grill fillets 6 to 7 minutes or until they begin to loosen from the grill rack. Turn and cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes or until fish is golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the heat and keep warm until ready to serve.

Arrange one tomato slice from marinated salad in the center of each plate. Using a slotted spoon, place onion and avocado slices on top of the tomato. Top with a tomato slice. Spoon several tablespoons of vinaigrette over and around each salad. Place a fillet over salad. Toss arugula in bowl with the remaining vinaigrette. Top each fillet with a small mound of the arugula.

Suggested pairing: Split Creek Farms 2010 Chardonnay, Sonoma County

BaroneSculptures

As much as I love looking at paintings and sculptures by famous — and in many cases long-dead — artists, I appreciate even more the paintings and sculptures of artists who are not household names. Actually, they are household names — in my world. They are “local artists” that are living and breathing life into new ideas all the time.
