ANNE WILLAN'S GARLIC and WALNUT SAUCE

ANNE WILLAN'S GARLIC and WALNUT SAUCE

Ail means “garlic,” as will be evident when you taste this sauce from Languedoc, an emulsion of walnuts and walnut oil with raw garlic and parsley. Serve it with duck breast, roast pork, or grilled vegetables. -

BACON CARAMEL SAUCE

Smooth and creamy, salty and sweet…How could bacon and caramel combined not be delicious? Making your own caramel sauce from scratch is a lot easier than you might think, and it takes practically no time at all. When making liquid caramel, here are a couple of Chef’s Tips: Make absolutely certain that the pan you are using is clean and that there aren't any impurities in the sugar/water solution. And, be sure to cook the sugar until it’s a very dark amber color, so that when you add the cream, you get a deliciously rich caramel…practice makes perfect.

BEET, RED ONION & HORSERADISH RELISH

The natural sweetness, enhanced by roasting, of the beets along with the balsamic vinegar contrasts and also tones down the sharpness of the horseradish and onion. Prepare a day ahead for the best flavor. Absolutely Delicious!
