Grandmas Klejner (klenät - fattigmann - kleynur - kleinur)

Video Recipe - Classic Danish/Scandinavian cake specially eaten at Christmas. I have certainly not seen it in other parts of the world. And this really IS grandmother's recipe. That is, not my grandmother, but my wife's father's grandmother. But that counts as well.

I am currently translating the recipes from my danish site as quickly as possible.

Crème brûlée
Video Recipe - Crème Brûlée is *the* classic French dessert. It is an edible toy for adults. A crispy caramel top. A creamy blubbery filling. It is simple to make. Uses few ingredients, and it's always a bit of a primal show-off doing the final work with the gas burner at the table.
Light and Dark stock / Bouillon
In french a stock is called "fond", from the word foundation. And a good stock IS the foundation of the french kitchen. It is the base of soups and sauces. It is the single ingredient that best distinguishes homemade food from what we get at restaurants. But most stock recipes are full of holes and implied methods. In this recipe I try very carefully to explain how to make a good stock, so you can raise the quality of your own food class or two. Death to the bouillon cubes :-)
Clarifying Stock - with an egg raft
Video Recipe - The stock I use in this recipe is made with roasted chicken thighs. The chickens are also divided and the vegetables are cookalong from the beginning. That's the perfect recipe for a muddy and unclear stock. To be honest, I also forgot it for a while, so that it came to a full boil :-S Well actually, it was not really a problem no problem because this stock was meant to be used for a brown sauce. If I had needed a clear stock it would have been too bad. But fear not! It can be cleaned up with this method.
Tiramisu - Italian Layer Cake
Video Recipe - A classic Italian cake, available in a wide variety of version. The main ingredients are the creamy mild mascarpone cheese that mostly taste like a heavy cream, and ladyfingers that are a bit similar to macaroons. I used to not bee very excited about it. Mostly because the ones I had tasted too much of coffee. So when I finally tasted one I liked (no actually, loved) the taste of, I made sure to get the recipe. I have never regretted this. Except sometimes when I'm out running:-s A dessert you can easily make the day before serving. It actually becomes better after resting overnight.
Homemade okara granola - sweet muesli with soy beans
When making soy milk there is a residue called "okara". If you roast it golden, it tastes like roasted almonds. It is therefore particularly suitable for a homemade "granola". And you, and the kids, will love it. It will not be a we-have-duty-to-eat-leftovers kind of thing, but a really good granola.

Random kvalifood - totally random ...

Rillette of Duck - Duck Rillette - Rillette de Canard
Rilette is a method of preserving meat in fat, as a kind of finely divided "head cheese". The fat ensures an oxygen-free environment that prevents salmonella and other nasty bacterias. It tastes great, and once in a while I just have to have it. It is also a great sandwich filler.
Brown Sauce - Basic Sauce
The classic brown sauce must be made with a heavy dark stock with the right herbs. Then it will be good! A few stock cubes and a spoonful of sauce darkener just doesn't cut the mustard.
Grilled Rack of lamb
Video Recipe - Roast lamb in the oven, or grilled in Weber grill. It is not very difficult to roast a whole lamb. Neither the oven or grill. In turn, arouses the always enthusiastic to wear such a large piece of meat on the table and cut it up there.
Hollandaise sauce
Video Recipe - One of the most classic sauces. Often used for fish and chicken. It ss always a hit. And as it is made ​​almost entirely of butter the consistency never fails. It can be a little tricky until you get the hang of it, but when you have learned to make it, it is one of the quickest and easiest sauces to make at all.
Danish Cinnamon Rolls - cinnamon buns - Snails - Coconut variation
This is undoubtedly the recipe I am most often pressured to make by my family. But that's easy to understand. Who does not like the classical cinnamon buns? This is a basic recipe, along with a few popular variations.
Homemade almond flour
Almond flour is useful in many recipes. Homemade marzipan, petit fours, French macaroons, pie bottoms, paleo cooking etc. It is a little time consuming, but simple enough to make with a blender or coffee grinder.
 
This is a brown sauce on steroids. Apart from the fact that it takes 10 hours to prepare the stock, it takes almost as long to prepare the sauce finished afterwards. It is "the" classic brown sauce which is known from Escoffier's cookbooks. Restaurants use it rarely more because they found it too difficult. But I think it's all worth the effort. The best "brown sauce" I have tasted.
Homemade Chai Tea
Chai tea has become extremely popular in this household. Especially in the cold months. Trying out different blends I have come up with my own mixture that I like the best. And this is it.
Make a Sourdough Starter
Video recipe - It is easy to make your own sourdough. Despite the fact that most people around the world have only heard about this mysterious thing called "homemade bread based on sourdough". The problem is almost always to get started. To make the sourdough. But it is not hard, and it is something we do routinely here in denmark, where most of the bread we eat is sourdough ryebread.
 
Sorbet is the most simple ice creams to make. It takes literally 5-10 minutes if you prepare a little bit in advance. Of course you can make sorbet without an ice cream maker, but they are so much better with one, so I strongly recommend them. Especially the type with built in compressor/freezer.
