Roast Leg of Lamb With Anchovy, Garlic and Rosemary

Roast Chicken


Sirloin Steak with Green Peppercorn Sauce

JANSSON’S TEMPTATION/Potato & Anchovy Gratin

Somewhere out there in cyberspace there's a site that has 15 of SH's recipes. I had it yesterday but for some reason can't find it through history now. If anyone can find it, it's a Bonanza!

      Oh that's terrific, koshercurry, thanks. I would Never think to link potatoes with pasta although I know that such combinations exist. Two starches.... too many calories, as my mother would have said.

      I just found what I think are a couple more, though from his latest book, Week In, Week Out:

      Ceps fried with potatoes, garlic and parsley
      Ray with potatoes and red wine vinaigrette
      Grilled veal kidneys with creamed onions and sage
      St Clement's cream


      I'd happy to compile a list of links w/o duplications to then post on the appropriate April COTM thread when it gets put up. I guess I could also include links to recipes that I and other posters have paraphrased here on Chowhound.

      So if you think you've found something else, do add it here!

        "I'd happy to compile a list of links w/o duplications," etc.
        That would be wonderful, MM, specially since I'm not going to buy his other book(s?).

          Many thanks for bringing MM's recipes here, TDQ. That's wonderful to have!
          In my perpetual state of CRS I forgot it.

            You are welcome! I've edited in the links I found, too, though I'm guessing there are many duplicates between yours and MMRuth's. Maybe your link with the 15 recipes is among them, I hope?

              Thanks to you both! I really want to make that Oeufs en Meurette - I've seen similar recipes but have yet to get up the gumption to use a bottle of wine to poach eggs! His book, Week In, Week Out, was based on recipes in a weekly newspaper column, and when I did that original search, I felt as if I wasn't running across them - they are not Roast Chicken & Other Stories recipes, but I figure there's nothing wrong w/ people cooking from other Hopkinson recipes and posting about it.

              So - I was thinking about posting on the UK board - asking if posters there had any other ideas about searching for his recipes - and also alerting them that we're actually doing a UK book this month!

                Seems like an extravagance, but, I suppose if it were absolutely delicious (and I'll bet it is!), you'd think it was worth it! I suppose it has to be a good bottle of wine?

                EDIT--and, yes, alert the U.K. posters--why not?

                  Yes, I agree - alert the UK posters. Brilliant idea!

                  Hi Ruth
                  I think I mentioned on the other thread - his weekly column was in The Independent newspaper, so it might be worth having a look on their website.

                  1. re: greedygirl
                    MMRuth Mar 31, 2008 07:10 AM

                    Thanks - I'll give it another try - I found some, but not a lot there googling - I'll try searching from the site itself.

                      I found a couple of links here -


                      But get an error message when I try to access them - Access control configuration prevents your request from being allowed at this time. Please contact your service provider if you feel this is incorrect.

                      Edit - ok, I've found those in findarticles.com, and am now having luck w/ his columns!

                      Ruth - for some reason your threads on the UK board are locked and so posters can't respond. Don't know why. Maybe the mods could have a look and sort it out.

                        They lock them b/c I posted a "pointer" to the correct threads - I did that so that the discussion on the UK board wouldn't be off topic. The idea is that the pointer is "heads up" to local posters who might have more knowledge on the subject, with a link to the correct topical board ....
