Sample text

Carve the squabs, separating the flesh from the carcasses. Chop the carcasses into large pieces and add to the simmering mead along with 2 chopped squab livers and ½ lemon, sliced into thin rounds. Stir the sauce and add what I call the “carving juice”—the liquid left on your work surface after you have carved the squabs. Your sauce should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and have a nice sheen. Run it through a chinois (a conical sieve); push hard to get every drop. Correct the seasoning and serve steaming hot with the four squab halves.

I also like the Smooth Cayenne variety, grown in all the major pineapple-producing countries and characterized by an almost thornless plume. On your work space, place one 5-ounce pot of liquid acacia honey, 1 green apple, 1 cup of olive oil, 1 pineapple, and 2 limes. In a measuring cup, mix the honey with the juice of the limes. Add the olive oil to the honey-lime mixture, a little bit at a time, as though you were making mayonnaise. Skin the pineapple and cut it into ¾-inch cubes. Pool 4 to 5 tablespoons of the honey, lime, and olive oil emulsion on each plate.
