Thumb_10435_Lemon Tart

Years ago, for the original Windows on The World, I devised a lemon tart that was a great signature dish. This is a very good home version of that Tarte au citron d'Olympe. This recipe is part of The Barbara Kafka Dessert Anthology.

Thumb_10479_Iceberg Wedges With Garlic Croutons And Green Goddess Dressing

For this classic salad set-up -- iceberg wedges with creamy dressing -- we used a variant of the original Green Goddess dressing, which was created in San Francisco in the early 1920s. The version most people know today is Annie's Natural's vegetarian version, which gets its nutty flavor from tahini.

Thumb_11277_Lemon Chiffon Pie

This is one of my very favorite desserts even though it takes a little time to make. It is clear tasting and creamy, nothing like the glue that usually passes for lemon meringue pie. I have simplified things a bit by creating a crust that doesn’t need rolling; it just gets patted into place. This recipe is part of the Barbara Kafka Dessert Anthology.

Thumb_14700_Three-Hour French Bread

The secret to this bread? Knead the dough for 2 minutes, let it rest, then knead again for 3 minutes. Letting the dough rest allows the gluten to relax, making a smoother dough. Read more about this recipe at Steamy Kitchen.

Thumb_4706_Mushroom, Arugula And Pecorino Salad

Thumb_4706_Mushroom, Arugula And Pecorino Salad

Spicy arugula is perfect for a mushroom and pecorino combination with a lemon-oil dressing. This is a salad that goes well with nearly everything and lightens up a heavy meal. 

Thumb_10173_Tuna, Green Bean And Potato Salad With Olives And Anchovies

Thumb_10173_Tuna, Green Bean And Potato Salad With Olives And Anchovies

This is hardly a classic salad Niçoise (no hard boiled eggs or roasted red peppers?), but this is a good starting point for variation. The saltiness of the tuna, olives and anchovies gives great flavor to the vegetables.
