Kosher Contessa: Rack of Lamb Persillade

No Comments 17 March 2010

The Barefoot Contessa is one of the most talked about chefs nowadays. Her recipes are easy to do, and the end result looks as if you were slaving away in the kitchen. While many of her recipes mix dairy and meat, they can be adapted to fit our kosher lifestyle.

Rack of Lamb Persillade

Adapted from Barefoot in Paris

Persillade refers to a combination of minced fresh parsley and garlic that’s added to a dish near the end of the cooking.

Serves 4

2 racks of Lamb, Frenched

Good Olive Oil

2 teaspoons Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cups loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, rinsed well and dried

1 tablespoon chopped garlic (about 3 cloves)

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted margarine, melted

1 cup matzoh meal crumbs

2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (2 lemons)

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

1. Place both racks of lamb in a roasting pan, fat side up. Rub the tops with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Roast the lamb for ten minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place the parsley, garlic, and margarine in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until finely minced. Add the matzoh meal and lemon zest and process for a second until combined. Taste mixture and adjust seasoning if necessary.

3. Take the lamb out of the oven and quickly press the parsley mixture on top of the meat. Return immediately to the

oven and roast for another 15-20 minutes.

4. Remove lamb out of the oven and cover with aluminum foil. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes, cut in double chops, and serve.

Triple Raspberry Sauce

1 Comment 17 March 2010

There are so many great recipes that can be made for Passover - you just have to be a little creative. This raspberry sauce is perfect for passover and all year round. It can dress up any passover cake into something special, and looks great drizzled over a meringue. Mix it into yogurt with mixed berries for a beautiful parfait, or alongside your cheesecake It’s also great for entertaining because it can be made a day or two in advance. This is one recipe that will take you very far!

Triple Raspberry Sauce:

Adapted from The Barefoot Contessa

  • 1 half-pint fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup seedless raspberry jam (12-ounce jar)

Place the raspberries, sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 4 minutes. Pour the cooked raspberries and the jam into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until smooth. Chill.

To serve, spoon some of the raspberry sauce on a small plate. Place meringue or cake on top of sauce and garnish with mixed fresh berries, and drizzle with more sauce.

Yield: 2 cups

As a variation to this recipe you can add 1 tablespoon of  a fruit flavored liqueur just for a little extra flavor. I have not found any liqueurs that are kosher for Passover but if you do please let us know!
