Eytan Zias, What Are You Baking?
Even if your oven sits cold all year, chances are you're considering
firing it up, right about now. As a holiday twist on our "What Are You
Eating" feature on Chow Bella and "What Are You Wearing?" on Jackalope
Ranch, for the next few weeks we'll be bringing you "What Are You
Baking?" Complete with a recipe, so you can DIY.
Rosemary and candied pine nut apple tart, this tart is kind of a standard of mine but I tend to change the toppings.
Favorite holiday treats?
Growing up in Israel we eat something called "sufganiot" for Hanuka, when I moved to the US I found out they were just plain old jelly filled donuts. So I'd have to say either sufganiot or just plain old latkes with apple sauce.
Find out which holiday goodie Zias would like to see outlawed -- and get his recipe for apple tart with rosemary and candied pine nuts -- after the jump.
Boxed stuffing, or sweet potatoes with marshmallows -- I don't understand it and think it should be illegal (or at least a dessert).
Absolutely, anything off the La Tienda website. I'm pretty into canned seafood and any Iberco pork they have (http://www.tienda.com/food/seafood.html).
Learn how to cook more simple and healthy, and be a better bread baker. A good friend of mine once pointed out how many unnecessary ingredients are in store-bought bread and since then I've been trying my hand at some quick breads, no kneads, and the standard slow rise ones of course - I still have a long way to go.
