Smoked Haddock with salad on malt crackers Author: DW.DE | Deutsche Welle
Tue, Apr 9, 2013
This recipe comes to us courtesy of chef Ren√© Jensen from Aarhus, Denmark
2 filets of smoked haddock or smoked gilthead
1 bunch of radishes
1 salad cucumber
Large handful of fresh ramson leaves
1/8 l olive oil
1 glass of pickled onions
Mayonnaise: 3 egg yolks and olive oil with ramson
Slice the smoked fish filets into small pieces. Tip: gilthead is a good alternative to haddock. It has a more refined smoked flavor compared to hot smoked fish. Now scoop out small cucumber balls. If you don't have a scoop, you can cut small cubes. Grate the radishes into thin slices directly into a bowl of water. This way the radishes stay fresh and the water removes the sharpness. Then half the pickled onions. Chop the ramson leaves into thin strips and mix them with the olive oil in a blender for about 5 minutes on medium speed. The ramson will give the oil a deep green color. The ramson oil is then serves as a base for the mayonnaise. Whisk the three egg yolks and ramson oil together until they thicken. Then prepare everything on a plate. Tip: add some sweet malt crackers. Enjoy!

PASTICCIO FERRARESE Author: DW.DE | Deutsche Welle
Tue, Apr 2, 2013
This recipe is by Daniele Masiera from the Cusina e Butega restaurant in Ferrara, Italy
PASTICCIO FERRARESE (Ferrara Noodle Pie)
Short Pastry Crust
170 grams wheat flour
100 grams powdered sugar
100 grams butter
1 egg yolk
1 pinch of salt
Combine ingredients and mix well until you get a firm dough. To adjust the consistency, add flour if mixture is too runny, and water if it is too dry. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
Meat and Vegetable Ragout
100 grams ground beef
100 grams ground pork
100 grams chicken liver
100 grams chicken giblets
1 small carrot
1 celery stalk
2 tablespoons Marsala wine
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop vegetables and saut√© lightly in olive oil, using a pot with a heavy bottom, until the onions are translucent. Add the ground meat and brown it. Add the chicken liver and giblets and stir well. Add the Marsala. Simmer the mixture on a low flame, ideally for at least two hours, stirring occasionally.
300 milliliters milk
30 grams butter
30 grams flour
50 grams parmesan cheese
Salt and grated nutmeg to taste
Melt the butter in a small pan; add the milk. Gradually add the flour while stirring. Stir in the parmesan cheese and allow to melt; add seasoning to taste. Allow the sauce to simmer until thickened.
Add 130 grams of small macaroni (Maccheroncini) to boiling, salted water; cook until al dente; drain.
Roll out the short pastry on a floured surface and cut out two plate-sized circles.
One circle will be the base of the Pasticcio. Brush the entire surface with egg yolk. Mix together the ragout, the noodles, the B√©chamel sauce and about 50 grams of the parmesan cheese and place the mixture on the prepared douch circle. Place the second circle on top, making sure that it completely covers the filling. Pinch together the edges of the dough circles. It's essential to make sure that the circles are large enough to completely cover the filling and form a sealed edge, similar to that of a calzone. Brush the surface of the dough with egg yolk and poke small holes into the top. Place the pie in the over and bake at 160 degrees Celsius until the dough is brown, about seven to nineteen minutes.

100 g onions
