Cook the Book: Duck Ham

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

Van Boven's take on Duck Ham is a quick salt cure, an almost effortless process that required barely any effort at all, especially when considering just how impressive homemade duck ham sounds. It's basically a matter of procuring a nicely fatty duck breast, scoring the layer of fat, sprinkling it it orange zest, and submerging the duck in a mountain of kosher salt. More

Cook the Book: Hangover Curing Pork Belly

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 3 comments

Hearing about hangover cures from foreign lands never gets old, which is one of the reasons I decided to tackle this Hangover Curing Pork Belly from Home Made by Yvette van Boven. The other reason? Pork belly never gets old—for me at least. Van Boven describes how she serves this pork belly in her restaurant, sliced and presented on crusty bread with a side of potato salad and sinus-clearing horseradish-lemon sauce. Sounds like the kind of carby, fatty, spicy plate that can cure what ails you, right? More

This pie comes from the "On the Side" chapter, which is full of simple sides to accompany her DIY mains. More

Keeping with the DIY theme of Home Made these Black Olive Mini Blinis with Pink Mascarpone, Salmon, and Preserved Beet embrace two of van Boven's made from scratch techniques: preserving and working with yeasted doughs. Here thin slices of parboiled beets are quick preserved in honey and raspberry vinegar and the yeasted dough is for fantastically nutty little buckwheat blinis. More
