Herb Crusted Rib Roast Recipe


  • 1 bone-in trimmed and tied beef rib roast (4 to 6 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 medium onions, thinly sliced

This herb crusted rib roast recipe is a classic in French kitchens. Dredged in a medley of herbs and a touch of garlic, this roast beef is roasted in high heat and then finished off in a medium-hot oven until it is cooked to tender, flavorful perfection. Layering thin slices of onion over the meat halfway through the cooking process is the secret method that imparts flavor and keeps the beef moist.


Preheat the oven to 450F. Using a mortar and pestle or a food processor, grind the oil, garlic, and herbs into a fine paste. Rub the paste over the surface of the beef and place the beef, fat side up, on a rack in a large roasting pan.

Roast the meat for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350F and roast the meat for 30 minutes. Arrange the sliced onions over the surface of the beef and continue cooking the roast for an additional 30 to 45 minutes, until a meat thermometer registers 145F for medium-rare.

Transfer the meat to a serving platter and remove the onions. Allow the roast to rest for 10 to 15 minutes, and then carve it into thin slices.

This herb crusted rib roast recipe makes 6 to 8 servings.

Cauliflower Gratin Recipe


  • 1 large (3 pound) head of fresh cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/3 cups grated Gruyere cheese
  • 1/3 cup dry, seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Creamy and comforting, this cauliflower gratin recipe features a classic Béchamel sauce punched up by just a little bit of fresh thyme. This gratin is a classic at Provencal tables, and is often served for the traditional meatless Christmas Eve dinner, gros souper.

Cook’s note: This recipe makes extra Béchamel sauce, which is perfect for drizzling on steamed vegetables.


Preheat an oven to 375F. Butter a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish and set it aside. Steam the cauliflower in a large pot of boiling water fitted with a steamer basket for 5 to 7 minutes, until the florets are just tender. Rinse them in cold water, drain, and arrange them in a single layer in the buttered dish.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and whisk in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. Continue whisking, cook for about 2 minutes, and then gradually – 1/3 cup at a time - add the milk. Continue whisking and cook until the sauce is completely heated through, smooth, and thickened. Remove from the heat and season with the salt, thyme, and nutmeg.

Pour 2 cups of the Béchamel sauce over the steamed cauliflower and gently toss the florets to make sure they are thoroughly coated with the sauce. Bake the gratin, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir together the grated Gruyere cheese and breadcrumbs and sprinkle them over the gratin. Bake it for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until the gratin is hot and bubbly and the cheese is melted and browned. Sprinkle the surface of the baked gratin with the ground pepper and serve hot.

This cauliflower gratin recipe makes 8 to 10 servings.

Coq au Vin Recipe.


  • 5 lb chicken, rinsed, patted dry, cut into 6 large pieces
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into chunks
  • 2 medium white onions, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 2 gloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 5 cups dry red wine
  • ¼ cup Cognac
  • ¼ canola or extra-light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 8 ounces pearl onions
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and sliced thin
  • 6 ounces good-quality sliced bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Coq au vin, or rooster in wine, was created as a delicious way to tenderize a tough, old bird in poor households. Chicken stewed in wine is a wonderful, hearty meal that needs no more than a baguette and good wine to be complete.

This recipe is prepared country-style, because the stewing vegetables are not removed upon serving, and the bacon, pearl onions, and mushrooms are partially cooked right along with the chicken.

Cook’s note:This recipe utilizes a beurre manie to enrich and thicken the sauce at the end of cooking.


Place the chicken in a large, deep, non-reactive casserole dish. Layer the carrots, onion, celery, tomato, garlic, thyme, bay leaf, parsley, and pepper evenly over the chicken pieces. In a small bowl, mix together the red wine, Cognac, and oil. Drizzle the wine mixture over the vegetables and chicken, and then marinate the mixture overnight, for 8-12 hours.

Preheat the oven to 425F. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove each piece of the chicken from the marinade, reserving the liquid, and brown them on each side. Set aside the chicken, scoop the vegetables out of the marinade, and cook them in the skillet for 5 minutes, until they begin to get tender.

Arrange the chicken in a deep, glass casserole dish, layer the vegetables over the chicken, and pour the reserved liquid over the casserole. Sprinkle the salt and sugar over the mixture, cover, and bake it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

While the chicken is baking, fry the bacon in the skillet until it is crispy and set it aside to drain. Pour off all but approximately 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease and sauté the mushrooms and onions over low-medium heat for 6-8 minutes, until they turn tender. When the chicken has cooked for 20 minutes, remove it from the oven and add the bacon, mushrooms, and onions. Cover and return the casserole to the oven for 20 minutes.

Mix together the 2 tablespoons softened butter and the all-purpose flour until they form a smooth paste. Add the butter-flour mixture, or beurre manie, to the chicken and vegetables for the last 5 minutes of cooking. Remove the casserole from the oven and stir the beurre manie throughout the dish. Allow it to sit and thicken for a few minutes before serving. 

Cranberry Brie Crepes Recipe

This cranberry brie crepes recipe, both savory and sweet, is delicious year round, but it is particularly irresistible after big holiday meals. Refreshing, tangy cranberry sauce combines with creamy, flavorful melted Brie cheese to make a perfect appetizer or light dinner. Adding succulent pieces of roasted turkey or chicken makes a marvelous addition to this already scrumptious dish.

Cook's note: Fresh, homemade crepes or store-bought crepes, usually found near the deli section of markets, can be used interchangeably for great results.


  • 4 crepes
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce or relish
  • 1/2 cup sliced Brie
  • 1 cup chopped, cooked turkey


Preheat an oven to 350F. Layer each crepe with 1/4 of the cranberry sauce, Brie cheese, and chopped turkey. Fold each crepe into quarters and place them in a single layer in a baking dish. Bake the crepes for 20 to 25 minutes, until the ingredients are warmed through and the Brie is melted. Serve immediately.

This cranberry Brie crepes recipe makes 4 servings.
