recipe

Fennel, lemon, herbs, and white wine create a flavorful broth, often referred to as court-bouillon, for poaching halibut. To maintain a clear cooking liquid, the aromatics are bundled between a halved leek. A slotted spatula or two eases the transfer of the finished fillets to a plate. A spoon-ful of broth can double as a finishing sauce.

These individual desserts can be made in ovenproof ramekins, mugs, or cups. The recipe also works in a nine-inch round cake pan, although you will need to increase the baking time to 35 minutes. Bread that has sat out at room temperature for two days works best, but you can also use fresh bread that has been cubed and lightly toasted on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven.

recipe

To get a nice log shape, lay the cake on a kitchen towel, fill it, roll it, then clip the towel's ends together with clothespins until the cake sets. We used frozen currants as a garnish, but frozen grapes work just as well. You may substitute cream cheese for the mascarpone; add two more tablespoons sugar and a half teaspoon vanilla.

Dosas are a specialty of southern India. Our spicy rava dosa, made with semolina and yogurt, is unfilled and served with sweet, piquant coconut chutney and steaming chai tea.
