Re: What do you do when you are docked or anchored?

TDW,

If you like Spainish food, Try some of the Catalonean recipes in the cookbook. I am fond of the food from that region (Barcelona)

I just met Jose Andreas and ate in his restaurant, Jaleo here in DC. Had veal cheeks for the very first time. Were ourstanding. We are partnering with him at the National Gallery of Art in one of my restaurants

If you like Creme Brulee here is the Catalan version- Joses recipe

Crema Catalan
Ingredients
2 cups (15 fl. oz) milk
1 cinnamon stick
Rind of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 medium egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup (7 oz) superfine sugar
Preparation
In a saucepan, bring the milk, the cinnamon stick, lemon rind, and vanilla extract to a boil. Simmer for several minutes the discard the cinnamon stick and lemon rind. Set the flavored milk aside.

In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks together with the cornstarch and 3/4 cup (5 oz) of the sugar until the mixture is creamy. Gradually pour this mixture into the saucepan with the milk, mixing continuously.

Slowly heat the mixture until it begins to thicken, taking care that the mixture does not boil. Pour into four shallow heatproof serving dishes, allow to cool, and refrigerate for several hours.

Immediately before serving, preheat the broiler and scatter the remaining sugar evenly over each serving. Place the dishes under the broiler until the sugar topping begins to caramelize. Remove from the broiler and serve. ( We use a small blowtorch)

here is another simple recipe from Valencia which I altered and make at anchor during breakfast or at the dock for later with dinner and some nice red wine in the summer ...very refreshing

Orange Cake
Makes 8- 6 oz ramakins

Ingredients

8 oz pancakes shortcake or biscuits
32 oz cream cheese or marscapone cheese ( double sugar if using marscapone)
3 oz butter
5 fl.oz orange juice
4 oz of sugar
16 oz of mandarins or 4 fersh navel orages segments
Raspberries or one 6 oz hershey bar curls (use a potatoe peeler)


Preparation
Crumble pancakes, shortbread or biscuits
Mix them with the melted butter.
Put the mixture in a individual ramakins greased with butter
refrigerate for at least 20 minutes

Beat cream cheese, sugar and the orange juice until homogenized
Pour this mixture into the ramakins and refrigerate for 3-4 hours
Decorate the cake with pieces of orange chocolate shavings and raspberries.
