Boneless, marinated and grilled leg of lamb

Boneless, marinated and grilled leg of lamb

Video Recipe - My favorite recipe for leg of lamb. The best taste and fairly quick preparation. What's not to love about it? The marinade and grilling results in a very good and strong flavor. The trick is that a the leg gets more surface when the bone is removed. And the surface is of course where most of the flavor is.

I am currently translating the recipes from my danish site as quickly as possible.

Boning and Butterflying a Leg Of Lamb
Video Recipe - Typically we fry a leg of lamb whole. Because it's the easiest to do. But a really good trick is to debone and butterfly it. You can cook it a lot faster then. The flattened shape also gives more room for a browned surface. You will also get more of that smoky barbecued flavor all oever the meat. Or you can roll them into a meat roll with marinade inside, so you get the marinade flavor onto all of the meat.
Potato Rosti - Swiss Potato Pancakes - Pommes Rösti
Video Recipe - Rösti are made with cooked potatoes, so I use it often as "leftovers" instead of the typical fried potatoes, hash and so on. But it is an accessory that everyone likes, and it has the advantage that you can add bacon, onion, cheese, apple or fresh herb. Which promises it over the other simple potato dishes.
Kvalitella - Because it rhymes with homemade Nutella
Video Recipe - My own recipe for a sweet hazel-nutty-chocolate'y spread. I don't think I have to tell you what it can be used for ...
Pan Fried Potatoes - Cottage Potatoes
Cottage potatoes are raw potatoes that are cooked in a frying pan. It's a good way to fry 2-4 servings of potatoes. However, it is not a good way to cook large quantities of potatoes. If they lie in layers on the pan, then the upper potatoes are cooked, and the bottom ones are in high risk of burning. There may be raw potatoes, hidden among the other ones and that can really make pan fried potatoes into a sad affair. Otherwise, you must use a really long frying time on large portions to be sure that all the potatoes are tender. At the risk of some getting burned. So here are my tips for making them.
Homemade popcorn
Video Recipe - One of the best snacks you can, well snack on, is also one of the easiest to make yourself. If you make them yourself, they are also much better than the ones you buy pre-popped. Warm and fresh. Maybe even made with clarified butter instead of oil. I get so sad when I see someone buying popcorn in bags from the supermarket when the homemade ones are twice as good. Maybe they are even 3.1415 times better !? So make them yourself ... right? Please!

French sauces according to Escoffier
In his book "Ma Cuisine" Auguste Escoffier describes a variety of sauces. Together the form the backbone of the modern French-inspired cuisine. There was both basic sauces and derivative sauces. This is an overview of the basic sauces and recipes for them.
 
Kimchi is the Asian variation of the european sauerkraut. Various vegetables are salted and fermented with natural lactic acid bacterias. In contrast to the European sauerkraut it is made of asian cabbage and with a lot of spices. I really like the classical sauerkraut, but kimchi I can eat straight from the jar.
Tiramisu - Italian Layer Cake
Video Recipe - A classic Italian cake, available in a wide variety of version. The main ingredients are the creamy mild mascarpone cheese that mostly taste like a heavy cream, and ladyfingers that are a bit similar to macaroons. I used to not bee very excited about it. Mostly because the ones I had tasted too much of coffee. So when I finally tasted one I liked (no actually, loved) the taste of, I made sure to get the recipe. I have never regretted this. Except sometimes when I'm out running:-s A dessert you can easily make the day before serving. It actually becomes better after resting overnight.
Æbleskiver - Aebleskiver - Apple Slices - American pancakes - pancake cake
Video Recipe - Classic Nordic food. A round cake baked in a special pan, that all Scandinavians know and love. At least all Danes. Good with both icing sugar, jam or syrup. The same recipe can be used to make the small thick American pancakes you always see eaten on tv and films. You can also use it to make a layer cake with.
 
A danish classic. Very well suited for the smoked herring (kippers), shrimp or whatever you have in mind. We usually get it at Christmas, but it is not necessary to limit it to that season. It is suitable as a condiment for meats, in sandwiches and open sandwiches (smørrebrød) for all seasons.
Homemade marzipan
Video recipe - If you want to make Danish pastries and desserts, there is simply no way around marzipan. I have many danes living away from the country asking for a marzipan recipe. Because you can not buy it in most places in the world. I have not been happy with the recipes I could find in the literature or online, so here is the one I have made. It took only 1½ weeks of experimentation and reading up to get it right:-S I also contacted one of the major danish marzipan manufacturers (Odense) that kindly shared some secret.
Danish Cinnamon Rolls - cinnamon buns - Snails - Coconut variation
This is undoubtedly the recipe I am most often pressured to make by my family. But that's easy to understand. Who does not like the classical cinnamon buns? This is a basic recipe, along with a few popular variations.
Chocolate Chip Cookies (Toll House cookies)
Without a doubt the Americans' greatest contribution to the culinary arts :-) Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is the "original" American recipe. It's also known from an episode of "Friends." It's only the filling I've changed a little bit, in order to suit my own taste buds better.
Bread Baking Technique #8 - Baking The Bread
What most of us think about when we say baking, is putting the into the oven and to pull it back out again. Hot and delicious. But if you understand the process you can pull out your bread and have it be even more delicious than by luck.
Fried rice with egg and chicken (or other meat)
Video Recipe - It is a dish that only takes 10 minutes to make. So it is fast and it tastes really well. An Asian classic that we eat too little of here in Denmark. Potatoes and meat is typical of the danish leftover dish "biksemad/pyttipanna". Rice and meat leftovers is in this Asian equivalent.
