Chocolate Raspberry Swiss Roll

Chocolate Raspberry Swiss Roll

I am always intrigued by layers in the cake and the nice even swirls of the sponge in a swiss roll. So I wanted to master a no-fail recipe that gives perfect swirls every time. I am an everything chocolate person and my husband (my guinea-pig) loves fruity flavors, so I baked this cake for our second anniversary.

Vegetarian Scotch Eggs

Vegetarian Scotch Eggs

This recipe is inspired by the vegetarian koftas (Indian meatballs) my mom used to make when I was growing up. I have tried to elevate it into meatless scotch eggs with a layer of mince soya made of split chickpeas and paneer. The rhubarb sauce adds a punch to the dish. All these indian flavors are sure to tickle your taste buds!

Cherry Dutch Baby

Cherry Dutch Baby

I love pancake houses and often order the Dutch baby. At the local pancake house, the choices are a plain Dutch baby (spritzed with lemon juice) or an apple one. Cherries were in season here in Seattle and I thought to try making a Dutch baby using them as the fruit. But, I had to make it gluten-free so my husband could eat it, too.

Rocket Pop Sorbet

Rocket Pop Sorbet

Remember those Red, White, and Blue popsicles? Well, this sorbet is inspired by them, and is a great hot weather treat (not to mention being really pretty!). But, unlike the popsicles, this sorbet is made with no artificial colors or flavors, and it has a decidedly mature flavor profile. Fresh, tart, and herbal, this sorbet has 3 layers (strawberry-black pepper, lemon-sour mix, and blueberry-thyme) and the flavors all compliment each other.
