Meat and Pear Open Ravioli from 'Pasta Modern'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 2 comments

"Open" ravioli are simply tubes or pieces of pasta tossed with ravioli filling used as sauce. The highly unusual blend of sauce ingredients in Francine Segan's version balances fresh and cured meats with an abundance of fruit and spices—there are pears and raisins as well as cinnamon, nutmeg, sage, and parsley intertwined in the calamari-shaped pasta.

British Bites: Bread and Butter Pudding

British Bites Sydney Oland 5 comments

This simple bread pudding is the perfect dessert after a filling meal. Rich and soft, it's often served with a custard sauce, but this version is so creamy and tender that it really doesn't need anything else but a strong cup of tea. If you have the time, letting the raisins sit in a few tablespoons of brandy before you assemble the pudding makes it even more decadent. More

DIY Raisins (Yes, Raisins)

Even though the process for making raisins is rather obvious, the richer sweetness and more complex flavor was a surprise. More

This is a DIY project I would say is all about unique taste and quality rather than cost—at least until the grape season hits locally. More

Wake and Bake: Carrot Cake Scones With Cream Cheese Icing

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 5 comments

It's the one time of year when people seem to remember this grand old dame of cakes, and I'm taking full advantage. By sneaking it into breakfast. Scones are the obvious vehicle for the same flavors as the cake—ginger, raisins, and walnuts are already old hat—and they're even amenable to a little bit of icing without turning into a cupcake.

Wake and Bake: Irish Tea Brack (Tea-Soaked Raisin Bread)

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

When people think of Irish baked goods, they often think of scones and soda bread. I love both those things, but the truth is that Ireland has an awesome bread baking tradition, ranging from hearty yeasted breads to fruit-filled quick breads. This is one of the latter—specifically a type of brack (from the Irish word brac, meaning spotted). The key is soaking raisins in tea overnight. More

Carolina Gold Rice Salad from 'Around the Southern Table'

Kate Williams Post a comment

This salad of white rice, raisins, pine nuts, and scallions from Rebecca Lang's Around the Southern Table may look a bit one-dimensional at first, but Lang's version is more than just a simple grain salad. The potent mixture of a lemon's zest and its juice whisked together with a touch of orange juice and a drizzle of sweet and tangy white balsamic soaks effortlessly into the hot rice, plumps the raisins, and tempers the bite of the scallions. More

British Bites: Raisin Tea Cake

British Bites Sydney Oland 3 comments

It's always nice to have something alongside a good cup of hot tea. Sandwiches, cookies, and buns are all great choices, but to me a nice slice of tea cake and butter is hard to beat. This is a simple cake, dotted with raisins soaked in tea—but put it next to a pot of tea, and take a moment to read a newspaper or stare out a window, and you'll be ready to get back to the real world feeling satisfied and invigorated.

Irish Soda Bread with Raisins and Caraway

Serious Eats Emma Kobolakis 6 comments

It's a wonder why soda bread isn't made year-round. With sweet raisins and grassy caraway seeds (and plenty of butter), this couldn't-be-simpler bread will see you through cold winter nights. More

British Bites: Soda Bread with Port-Soaked Raisins

British Bites Sydney Oland 1 comment

If you're looking for a quick bread to go with your afternoon tea, or your morning fry up, look no further than the humble soda bread. Raisins or currants are an expected addition, but soaking the raisins in port before adding them to the dry ingredients gives them an extra boozy sweetness that really livens up this simple bread.
