Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit by Amos Miller

This is one of my absolute favorite berry desserts and comes from Tony Bourdain and Les Halles Restaurant in NYC. I have had the audacity to make just one minor modification to the recipe, but I have no regrets, and neither will you. We grow blueberries all season long at Walnut Ridge Farm, so there are always opportunities to try…

World's Best Roasted Creamed Corn by Amos Miller

A velvety, rich and extremely flavorful side dish - commonly overlooked. I have adapted this recipe from one of Hubert Keller's. He prefers to use Parmesan cheese, I go with Gruyere. I also have cut back a bit on some of his ingredient amounts and have not gotten any complaints. This takes a little organization, but I found a…

Easy Risotto & Gourmet Mushrooms

Easy Risotto & Gourmet Mushrooms by Amos Miller

Risotto scares too many cooks. It's really a simple dish, though not commonly served at the American dinner table - unless you have some (usually Northern) Italian blood in your family. When done with care, risotto can be a sublime accompaniment to all types of dishes. In fact, you can add all types of things to a risotto to…
