There was an event this past weekend for which we had indoor sleeping
arrangements and electricity but no actual kitchen facilities. (note to
self: reserve cabin with kitchen next time) Things were learned:
Darioles (the egg and cheese filling variety) work really well done in
muffin tins, sez the Consort. He considers that size the perfect ratio of
crust to filling. Also the half-wheat flour crust was also a hit.
Buchaut of chicken (buchaut of bunny--from Chiquart I think--with chicken
substituted in for bunny) freezes and reheates amazingly well and is
exceedingly good on toast.
The major success of the weekend was an adaptation of the salmon pie
recipe here: http://www.medievalcookery.com/recipes/salmonpie.html The
changes were to make individual pastries using 4-ounce chunks of salmon
fillet, and I put dill, garlic powder, and a bit of mustard powder into
the pastry. Wrapped snugly in foil and then frozen, they reheated in the
coals of our neighbor's fire quite well.
I had a leftover one for lunch yesterday and it actually fit
into the toaster here at work, albeit a trifle on the snug side. If we
were to mince the raw salmon a bit to make the final product a bit
thinner, we'd have fish-filled Pop Tarts.
