Like food, every cocktail has a story behind it.  There are obviously the personal connections that one has to a drink.  For me, I’ll always think of warm summer afternoons when I’m sipping a gin and tonic.  Steaming mugs of hot toddies go hand in hand with Downton Abbey marathons. And champagne… well, I will never forget our meal at The French Laundry and the marriage of bubbly with the briny poached oysters and tapioca “pearls” in custard.

I started this blog because I feel that there is so much to learn from cooking and food.  Beyond these experiences, however, are the historical tales that go along with each dish.  Do some research into your favorite food, and you’ll surely be able to uncover an elaborate story.

This has been an odd week. Each day seems to have merged into one big blob. Maybe it’s due to the way it started off… with a storm that ravaged the state where I grew up and a city for which I hold much affection for.   My parents and sister and her family are safe, though they’re stuck without electricity until next week (not to mention a very large tree that is leaning precariously towards their house).  But there are others who weren’t as lucky… so many people lost their homes and possessions.  And there are neighborhoods that will need to be completely rebuilt.  It’s devastating to watch.

One thing I realized I can do is reach out to you, my dear readers, and ask you to donate some money (even $5) to one of the amazing organizations out there who have been helping during this crisis.  The largest is the Red Cross and here is the direct link to donate to them, but there are plenty of other groups who need the money as well.  Again, even a small donation helps.  I also recommend reading this article from the Huffington Post on Tips for Donating Smartly as well as this page on the FEMA website.

Lastly, my friend Jenn Oliver at Jenn Cuisine is hosting a food blogger event to get the word out about donating.  Check out her post: Food Bloggers Support for Sandy

So… yeah, I haven’t even talked about this Moroccan Carrot Dip.  My darling friend Mandy (who is also a fabulous cook) brought it to our Friendsgiving dinner last year and I was blown away by its brilliant flavors.  I felt like this was a good dish to make… the color alone will lift your spirits a bit.

    A Good Time With Wine - Brian
    As always, a great post. I appreciate your thoughtful comments about the people hit by the storm. AS someone who grew up in Brooklyn, who’s mom lived on Staten Island until last year and who’s dad is still in New Jersey, the storm affected m friends and loved ones tremendously. And as someone who’s gone through 6 hurricanes in 7 years, I know how much pain the rebuilding is.

    As for the dip, I love the idea! I have never thought of anything as interesting as a carrot dip, and will definitely give this a shot!

Sometimes I look back at my published posts and I see reoccurring themes.  What I’m seeing now is that apparently I’ve been really into comfort food lately. Soup, potato gratin, a pot pie… and now this galette. Maybe I just need a hug.  Or a cup of tea.  A glass of scotch. Something to make me feel cozy.

I can’t take complete credit  for this recipe.  The filling, I can. The crust, not so much.  That came from the very talented baker/entrepreneur/cookbook author behind the fabulous Tate’s Bake Shop, Kathleen King, who has just come out with her latest book, Baking for Friends.  You may be a bit skeptical when you see the cornmeal listed as an ingredient… but gosh darn it, every time I make a galette, I’m going to refer back to this recipe. That small addition has a huge impact on the whole texture of the pastry. And it works beautifully.

Before you head on off to make this (which was incredibly easy to whip up and will work with a number of other kinds of fruits), I have a little giveaway to announce!  The fine folks at Tate’s Bake Shop are generously giving away one of their fantastic Cookie and Bar Towers to one lucky reader.

To enter: All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. No restrictions.

Official Rules: No purchase necessary. Open to US and Canadian residents only . Giveaway will end on November 4th 2012 at 12:00 pm EST. One winner with a valid entry will be selected at random using The winner will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be selected.

Additionally, if you want to receive $5 off Baking for Friends, just enter the code “BAKEOFF” when you order it from their site.

    jaime @ sweet road - I know the feeling. As soon as cooler weather hits I start to go back to my comfort food recipes and taking advantage of every moment that I can make a cozy moment. I drink tea, I bake nonstop, and I spend plenty of time cuddled and cozied up in front of the fire. Next time I’ll do it with some dessert inspired by this galette!ReplyCancel
