Recipes

Here is a collection of recipes that we have recorded over the years, sometimes at the behest of a customer, sometimes for a magazine editor, and sometimes just so we wouldn’t forget (a thing that happens all to easily when you cook over 10,000 different dishes a year).

We hope that you will enjoy these recipes in the spirit in which they are intended. To quote from a somewhat recent and somewhat infamous movie, “they’re more what you’d call guidelines than actual rules.” These are the sheet music and they convey the notes, but it’s up to you, the player, to add the phrasing and the nuance that make these recipes your own. Play on!
