Pan Grilled Tofu with Miso Glaze

Pan Grilled Tofu with Miso Glaze by John Spottiswood

This is an outstanding and pretty appetizer to serve before any asian meal. Our kids, who are somewhat indifferent to tofu, gobbled these up. They are slightly sweet and salty, with enough additional flavor to be interesting. I made these along with a tried and true teriyaki chicken recipe, which I grilled to perfection, and I…

Moules a la Provencale

Moules a la Provencale by Ali El Safy

One of our favorite appetizers. Also makes a great meal with fries. I recommend that home chefs get their butcher to clean the mussels before you take them home. Most stores will do this for you.

Gado-gado sauce

Gado-gado sauce by Mihir Shah

This is a sauce my grandmother used to make. Meant to be served over mixed greens or can even be used as a cocktail dip. I like it over a mixture of steamed rice, egg, and steamed vegetables. Awesome!

Tuna with Moroccan Spices and Chermoula

Tuna with Moroccan Spices and Chermoula by John Spottiswood

This is just an outstanding appetizer. The spices do not overwhelm the flavor of the tuna, but instead complement them perfectly. We served this to four good friends, and we demolished it. The main course afterwards was also wonderful, but this is an appetizer that will outshine most entrees.

Georgian Eggplant with Walnut

This will taste best if you use asian eggplant (chinese, japanese, etc.) which is much thinner than regular eggplant and had smaller and fewer seeds. Makes a great appetizer that can…

Shrimp & Bok Choy

Shrimp & Bok Choy by Nanette

This is a light and easy meal and healthy, too. I used onions, but scallions or green onions would do. Fresh ginger, soy sauce and rice vinegar gives it the perfect Asian flavor. The "heat" should be to your taste. *wash any grit from bok choy and remove just the root. Slice stem and leaves lengthwise, then chop

Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala by Therese

A delicious dish to serve for dinner during the week but also fancy enough to serve for a dinner party. You will notice in this recipe that i saute the mushrooms in butter and Marsala wine first this elevates the flavor of the Marsala in the mushrooms to a whole new level of flavor.

This was an outstanding dish that we served last night with a lamb tagine. It's fairly easy to put together, and will fill your house with wonderful smells! The sweetness is a nice accompaniment to a spicier dish.
