White Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries

I wanted to get this holdout from summer posted before memories of summer completely fade away. I’m suddenly craving fresh berries – yum!

White Chocolate Strawberry Mousse

White Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries
recipe courtesy Williams-Sonoma

2 cups strawberries, stems removed
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbs. kirsch or framboise
6 oz. white chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup milk, warmed
1 cup heavy cream
2 egg whites, at room temperature
Pinch of cream of tartar
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract

In a blender or in a food processor fitted with the metal blade, combine 1 1/2 cups of the strawberries with the sugar. Puree until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl. Add the kirsch and stir to mix. Cut the remaining 1/2 cup strawberries lengthwise into thin slices and stir into the puree. Set aside.

Place the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over but not touching gently simmering water in a saucepan. Heat the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until it is melted and smooth and registers 140°F on an instant-read thermometer. Gradually add the warm milk to the chocolate, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove the bowl from the pan of water and let the mixture cool until it is almost at room temperature.

In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the cream on high speed just until soft peaks form. In another bowl, using clean beaters, beat together the egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold half of the whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it. Fold the remaining whites, the whipped cream and vanilla into the chocolate mixture just until combined and no white drifts remain. Do not overmix. (At this point, you may cover and refrigerate the mousse for up to 1 day.)

To serve, spoon about half of the mousse into 6 parfait glasses, half filling each glass. Top with the strawberry sauce, again using about half and dividing it equally. Repeat with the remaining mousse and strawberry sauce. Serves 6.

Admin Note: Site Updates

I’m in the midst of updating the menu section, the food bloggers directory, and the events section, removing links that are dead, and trying to add new ones.

So, if you’ve got a blog you’d like listed, or an event you’d like promoted, or a menu that you’d like me to post, drop me an email to columbusfoodieATgmailDOTcom with the pertinent information.

If I owe you an email and I haven’t got back to yet, my apologies. I’m working on catching up – I’m working on August emails as we speak. I haven’t forgotten about you, I promise.

Thanks for your patience. 🙂

Event: Wayward Seed Harvest Dinner

I absolutely love going to Slow Food Columbus events. The dinners are usually nothing short of amazing. So when Trattoria La Tavola paired up with Wayward Seed Farm in order to offer a seven course harvest dinner on October 26th, many Slow Food members and friends decided to accept their gracious invitation to attend.

I love what they do over at Wayward Seed – I cannot tell you how many heirloom varieties of fruits and veggies I’ve enjoyed from the farmer’s markets this year due to their dedication to picking stellar produce to grow. And those fresh, local ingredients, in the hands of a skilled chef? Well, see for yourself.

The only unfortunate thing about the dinner is that it was held in the evening, after it was already dark. My pictures are less than stellar, since I was forced to use a flash to get any picture at all. Hopefully my descriptions of the dishes will do them the justice that my photographs will not.

The first course was a house-cured bresaola, which was served with olive oil dressed arugula, pickled Jimmy Nordello sweet pepper and shaved Pecorino Romano cheese. The bresaola was delicious, and the peppers were both sweet and piquant at the same time – pickling them was just the thing needed to preserve both qualities long enough for them to be available for the dinner. The cheese was a nice offset to the sweetness of the peppers.

House Cured Bresaola

The second course was playfully called “PB & J”, which was quite literally, a sandwich made from home-made brioche spread with foie gras and chicken liver pate and Ohio concord grape puree. It was definitely unusual – I absolutely loved the concord grape puree, but found the combination of the pate and the grape puree together a little cloying.


The third course was a House Cured Pancetta Crostino, with lacinato kale, poached quail eggs and California dry jack cheese. The pancetta and the kale (which was sweetened lightly with I don’t know what) were absolutely fantastic, and I felt like the cheese once again was a great offset to the other ingredients. I thought the bread and quail egg weren’t completely necessary to the success of the dish, and just took away from the quality of the other ingredients.

House-Cured Pancetta Crostino

The fourth course was my personal favorite – the White Acorn Squash Raviolo, with winter savory Amish brown butter and aged Oakvale gouda. The particular squash variety they used, a Thelma Sanders heirloom variety, needed nothing more than salt and pepper to make it one of the best pasta fillings I’ve ever encountered. It was sweet, naturally buttery and creamy and just out of this world. I bought all they had available over the next market or two, and now have two of the squash sitting in my pantry waiting for me to try to recreate this fantastic dish. If this were on the menu regularly at Trattoria La Tavola, I’d definitely be eating there a lot more often than I do.

White Acorn Squash Raviolo

The fifth course, a Sauteed Muscovy Duck over California dry jack polenta topped with Aunt Molly ground cherry and white raisin mostarda, used one of my favorite ingredients (ground cherries) in a savory way that I never thought of using it. The duck was cooked perfectly, and the sweetness of the mostarda was just what the dish needed to shine.

Sauteed Muscovy Duck

The sixth course, a Fennel and Herb Crusted Ohio Pork Loin, was a honkin’ huge (I mean huge – had to be at least an 8 oz portion) thick slice of pork loin served with a chanterelle mushroom reduction and green mountain potatoes pommes anna. The serving was so substantial I had a hard time finishing it after all the other courses. The potatoes were prepared simply, with lots of butter.

Fennel and Herb Crusted Ohio Pork Loin

The seventh course, a Winter Luxury Pie Pumpkin Budino with Maple Gelato, was also a favorite. It paired a bread-pudding like sweet pumpkin pudding with homemade maple ginger gelato, pecan, hickory nut and marsala caramel. Just yum all around – the combination of flavors was nothing short of perfection.

Winter Luxury Pie Pumpkin Budino with Maple Gelato

My tablemates made the experience so much more fun, and included Anne, someone who I later found out was a regular reader (hi there!), and someone whose face I was familiar with as they’re an employee at my one of my favorite stores, Trader Joes. It was a lovely experience, and I’m so glad I decided to go even if Paul wasn’t able to attend.

If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not to attend one of the Slow Food Columbus dinners or a special dinner that encompasses Slow Food principles, I recommend you take the plunge and give it a try. I’ve yet to experience anything that didn’t knock my socks off. Honestly, it’s some of the best food I’ve eaten in this town. Give the next one a try (after I get my tickets, of course!).

Swedish Meatballs

presto pasta nights

I absolutely love Swedish meatballs, and have for years – but as easy as they are to prepare, I’ve never actually had them from scratch. With the aid of a recipe, were were able to duplicate a recipe that’s at least as good as any other we’ve had. We’d definitely make it again, although next time we might make the meatballs smaller. I’m submitting this recipe to be part of this week’s Presto Pasta Nights.

Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs
recipe courtesy Food Network

1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp minced onions
2/3 c. fresh bread crumbs
1 c. water
3/4 lb. lean ground beef
3/4 lb. lean ground pork
2 large egg yolks
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground allspice
4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 c. beef stock

In a small, heavy skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add the onions and saute, stirring often until soft, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, combine the bread crumbs and water. Let stand until soft, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the reserved onions along with the beef, pork, egg yolks, salt, pepper, nutmeg and allspice. Beat on low speed until smooth. Turn the mixer to high speed and beat until the mixture is light in color and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Using 2 spoons dipped in cold water, shape the meat into 1-inch balls.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 4 tablespoons butter. Cook the meatballs in batches of about 15 to 20 at a time and brown on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain briefly on paper towels before removing to a warmed serving platter. Cover to keep warm. When all the meatballs are cooked, reduce the heat to low and add the flour to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until lightly browned. Slowly add the beef stock. Cook, whisking, until the gravy is thick and smooth. Strain, if desired. Pour the gravy over the meatballs and serve hot.

Osso Bucco and Risotto Milanese

I’m not sure why, but even though I’ve never had this particular dish, I’ve been craving it for a while. It seems every cookbook I peeked into, every magazine I thumbed through had a variation of this. So making this has been at the back of mind almost a month. I had originally plannned to make it for our wedding anniversary on the 1st, but the plans never materialized and our celebration got pushed back nearly a week until Paul has some free time off work.

This recipe is definitely a budget-buster. The veal alone cost $41 at Whole Foods (one of the few places I thought to look for it locally). So while it was definitely a hearty dish that was perfect for the weather and the occasion, it will have to be one that we save for special occasions. The risotto recipe is basically my own, based loosely on the recipe given with the osso bucco.

Osso Bucco and Risotto Milanese

Osso Bucco
recipe modified from

4 veal shanks
1 cup of flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 yellow onion chopped
1 carrots peeled and chopped
1 stalks of celery chopped
4 clove of crushed garlic
1 sprig of fresh thyme chopped
1/2 cup of red wine
1 cup of beef or veal stock
4oz. of tomato paste
1/4 cup of olive oil

Dredge veal shanks in flour with salt and pepper. In a large pot fry the veal until brown on all sides. Remove shanks from pot and set aside.

Saute carrots, onions and celery for about 5 minutes.Add garlic ad thyme for about another 2 minutes. Stir in tomato paste for about 1 minute. Add red wine and broth. Turn burner on high and reduce sauce for 5 minutes uncovered.

Turn burner down and add veal shanks back into the pot and cover. Simmer for about 2 hours.
Be careful when taking the shanks out of the pot so they don’t fall apart and you don’t lose the bone marrow. Place on a plate and spoon sauce over veal. Serve with risotto recipe below.


2 shallots chopped
4 tbsp butter (plus 2 tbsp for finishing)
2 cups of Aborio rice
1/2 cup of dry white wine
5-7 cups of chicken broth heated
1 tsp. saffron
1/2 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper

Saute shallots and onions in butter until translucent. Add rice and stir until all grains are coated. Saute 1-2 minutes until lightly toasted. Add white wine to deglaze. Add 1 cup of broth and saffron and stir until liquid is absorbed. Add the remaining broth 1 cup at a time stirring every time until broth is absorbed and rice is creamy in texture (this will take 25-30 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in butter and cheese.

Sausage, Kraut and Potatoes

Out of everyone I know, I’m probably the most experimental with food – always trying new things, making new recipes, using ingredients that most of my friends and family aren’t familiar with, etc. But then there’s plain old “everyday” food here at Casa Boyer.

Fried Sausages with Caramelized Onions and Kraut and Mashed Potatoes

Blame Oma for this one – it’s something I grew up with. This is one of our “go-to” meals, that appears at least a few times a month. Weiswurst (Cincinnati Brats) from Thurn’s, with some mashed potatoes and Thurn’s sauerkraut. Can’t think of anything that hits the spot more than this.

Review: Cafe Shish Kebab

Cafe Shish Kebab exterior

I’ve been to Cafe Shish Kebab (the sister restaurant to Cafe Istanbul) occasionally for dinner, but was told they had a lunch special that was – yes, I’m going to say it – pretty special. For $8.95, you get three courses – a choice of appetizer, a choice of entree, and a dessert of their choice. Other than dessert, there’s about 7 or 8 choices for each course. Excuse the harsh lighting, I took advantage of sitting outside when we were having unseasonably warm weather last week.

Pide from Cafe Shish Kebab

The first thing they did was bring out a loaf of Pide (Turkish bread), which is nice and crusty on the outside, and fluffy soft on the inside. They served it to me with some oil that had what I believed to be sun-dried tomatoes and other spices in it.

Dipping Oil from Cafe Shish Kebab

For my appetizer, I chose their Baba Ganoush, one of my favorite dishes at this location. The portion size was quite substantial, and the flavor was fabulous – nice combination of smoky eggplant and tahini that enhanced rather than overpowered the natural sweetness of the vegetable. The texture was nice and smooth, unlike the dip I had at their sister restaurant.

Baba Ganoush from Cafe Shish Kebab

For my entree, I went with Chicken Shish Kebab. I’ve never had a bad kebab by them, and the chicken is suprisingly one of the more flavorful and tender ones – the juices served to flavor the buttery rice they sat upon. Vegetables are extraneous and honestly wouldn’t be missed if they weren’t there.

Chicken Kebab from Cafe Shish Kebab

The dessert was a little disappointing – a tiny square of baklava that was sort of on the dry side. While it did serve as a nice palate cleanser, it was a bit of a letdown after the two fabulous dishes that preceded it.

Baklava from Cafe Shish Kebab

Service was slow but my older waiter was very kind, as he always is when I come to their restaurant. Definitely worth the price of admission, but if you only have an hour for lunch, you may have a problem getting back on time. A great way to experience a great restaurant on a smaller scale.

Grilled Pineapple with Butter Rum Glaze

After last week’s warm temperatures (I had a hard time believing it was November!), the cold is back, and with the warm weather goes any hope of it being unseasonably warm for more than a few days at a time. So call this recipe a reminder of the warmer days of this past summer. I actually made this dish in August, but am just getting around to blogging about it now.

I guess you could call this one a modification of a modification. The original recipe was a part of a menu by Bobby Flay for a backyard barbecue, which was then posted on Then I modified it further by changing out the topping – the original called for Vanilla Mascarpone, but I bought some lovely tropical goat cheese at the farmers market, and topped it with that instead. Either way, I’ll give you the original recipe intact, and let you decide what *you* want to do to modify it (if at all). It truly is a quick and tasty end to a barbecue.

Rum Glazed Grilled Pineapple with Tropical Goat Cheese

Grilled Pineapple with Butter-Rum Glaze and Vanilla Mascarpone
recipe courtesy Bobby Flay, via

1 cup dark rum
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 vanilla bean
8 ounces mascarpone
1 ripe pineapple, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
1/2 cup fresh blueberries

1. Combine the rum, butter, and sugar in a small saucepan and simmer, whisking often, until the sugar has melted and the mixture is slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. (The glaze can be made a few days in advance, cooled, covered, and kept refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before using.)

2. Cut the vanilla bean lengthwise in half and scrape out the seeds with the tip of a sharp knife. Whisk the mascarpone and vanilla seeds together. (The mascarpone can be made a day in advance, covered, and kept refrigerated.)

3. Heat your grill to high.

4. Grill the pineapple slices, brushing frequently with the glaze, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

5. Remove the pineapple to a platter or serving plates and top each slice with a dollop of vanilla mascarpone. Garnish with a few fresh blueberries. Serve immediately.
