Tokyo Delancey dark rye salmon bagel

May 8, 2015

This take on the smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel is packed with vitamins and minerals from the seaweed salad, as well as providing Omega-3 from the salmon.

Dark rye bagels are few and far between so a regular bagel can be used; we use it for the colour contrast of the black bread against the orange salmon and green wasabi and seaweed as well as the rye flavour.

Simple lamb shepherd's pie

By Jeff and Jodie Morgan, April 23, 2015

Many years ago, Jeff spent several summers working as a shepherd in the Swiss Alps. He was charged with herding cattle and goats - but not sheep. Maybe that's why he doesn't remember eating anything that resembles this dish - commonly referred to as shepherd's pie. It's not really a pie at all, and it's typically made with lamb topped with a potato crust.

Smoked salmon caprese with endive

By Jeff and Jodie Morgan, April 23, 2015

This is our family's take on the classic Italian salad made with mozzarella cheese, tomato and fresh basil. It's easy to prepare and lovely to behold.

As kids in New York, we grew up with cream cheese and lox, but we never did like cream cheese. Instead, we prefer our lox - or smoked salmon - with mozzarella. The fresher the cheese, the better.

Recipe: Lamb, pine nuts and tahini kebabs

April 17, 2015

I like to serve these kebabs with my version of a lemon, chilli and garlic sauce that is served in the hummus joints in Israel. I think this sauce is perfect for these kebabs. To make it, blitz 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 2 green chilli peppers, 4 garlic cloves, the juice of 1½ lemons, a teaspoon each of ground cumin and flaked sea salt in a food processor until smooth.
