Make This Warm Huckleberry Galette

Where we live it is Huckleberry season, which means these sweet little berries are now available at Albertson’s on Broadway, who I have been working with on several tasty projects this summer. Huckleberries look quite similar to blueberries but their taste is more intense with more juice which makes these intensely delicious once baked as the juices release and mix with he sugar/flour mixture to make a syrup.
This is another simple and quick recipe that appears and tastes more labor intensive than it actually is! Check out the recipe below.


Ingredients:

pie crust (make your own or purchase one ready-made)
fresh Huckleberries, about 5 oz
3 fresh figs
2 tlb flour
2 tlb light brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
pinch of salt
zest from 1/2 lemon
1 egg, beaten
coarse sugar or honey for garnish

Directions:

Roll out your pie dough into a circle, approx 12″ wide. Rinse your Huckleberries and figs and drain. Mix your sugar, flour and spices together and gently toss your fresh berries in them. Now fill the center of your crust with the dusted berries and then top with quartered figs and lemon zest, being careful to leave about 1 1/2″ of dough to folding over the edges. Pleat your edges as you fold them up, brush edges with the beaten egg and then sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake at 350ºF/176 C for 40 minutes. Once galette is removed a cooled slightly you can drizzle it with a bit of honey. Serve with fresh vanilla ice cream or mascarpone cheese!

A Quick Salsa Verde Recipe Using Local Hatch Chiles

Earlier this week I was invited to visit the New Albertson’s again to check out their Hatch Chile special, which I was glad to do because I love chiles! In the spring I planted some peppers and they are just now producing fruit which I can’t wait to use in more salsa soon.
Right now at the Albertson’s on Broadway however they are celebrating these amazing peppers and roasting them right on the spot. In honor of this I wanted to make a simple salsa verde to share with you that can be added to not only tacos but also over eggs, potatoes or used to garnish roasted chicken with.

You will need:
roasted Hatch Chiles (Albertson’s has both medium and hot varieties to choose from)
tomatillos
garlic
cilantro
lime wedges
jalapeno
red onion
salt

Begin by blistering the tomatillos on a grill pan along with garlic. Blend all ingredients together, I used approximately 8 tomatillos with 3 cloves of garlic, a thick slice of diced red onion, a handful of fresh cilantro, the juice of two limes, one large jalapeño and sea salt to taste. Total cook and prep time is approximately 30 minutes. Use immediately or let cool and store it overnight in the refrigerator to let the flavors infuse!

A New Local Store Opens Today!

Last night I was invited to a pre-opening party for a brand new market opening in Boise, Albterson’s on Broadway. It’s Grand Opening is today but we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the new facility.
The event we attended offered a full view of the store which was pristinely stocked with most amazing foods! They offered samples in almost every department which included ramen, sushi, bulgogi and other unique burgers, pizzas, cheeses, cured meats, gelato, pastries, toasted handmade marshmallows, wine and beer!

The store is massive and the vast variety of food is astonishing, every area has many many different versions of any one type of food. I skimmed over the fresh produce and there were unique lettuces that I had never seen before, just one example of the wide range of products they carry.

In addition there was a loft with a full bar and seating with an outdoor balcony. There were more alcohol sampling here as well as grilled meats to try.


Also, their floral section is incredible. Again, the variety of fresh plants and exotic stems just floored me. I let with a wishlist of flowers I will have to go back for next week! They also offer delivery and different floral services.

If you’re in the area make sure to stop and see it for yourself, and be prepared to spend a chunk of time there taking in the full selection.

Scandinavian Scents for this Summer

This beautiful summer that has been bestowed to us is a blessing, all Scandinavians will remember it as the Summer of 2018. But with temperatures this high the need to smell good is bigger that ever and with a huge selection of Scandinavian perfumes to choose from, it feels like match made in heaven. Below I am presenting you some of my favorites, do read on, the choice is yours!

1 :: Byredo was launched in Sweden in 2006 by Ben Gorham at the age of 31 years old, after an inspiring encounter with perfumer Pierre Wulff. The native Swede didn’t have a formal training in the field, but he sought out the services of world renowned perfumers to whom he carefully explained his olfactory desires. Bibliotheque is back in stock and just in time, I had just finished my previous bottle!
2 :: The designer Ann Ringstrand, born in Sweden, has created fashion since early 1990. She teamed up with perfumers in Paris to design her own niche perfume line made in France. The concept developed a fragrance series with ceramic ware for scent diffusing among others that is available now. All 3 perfumes are exquisite, you just have to try them! 

3 :: AGONIST is a Swedish Perfume House launched 2008. Today AGONIST is regarded as one of the most sought after and unique brands within the international niche market of perfumes. The unique and dramatic artistic expressions from AGONIST is derived from the beauty of Scandinavian nature and culture. AGONIST is founded by the creative couple Christine and Niclas Lydeen.

Solaris is inspired by the vibrant midnight sun that never sets during summers in the North. Fresh, citrusy and warm, this fragrance is as magical as refreshing.
4 :: Son Venin is a new Norwegian perfume brand with headquarters in Oslo. With a respectful and discreet approach, Son Venin creates experimental, intimate perfumes that fuse a continental feeling with their Scandinavian background. Le Voleur is an elegant and seductive scent, that mingles together the freshness of a white bouquet and modern iris with sensual incense and gaïac wood.
5 :: A native Icelander, Andrea Maack graduated from the Icelandic Art Academy with a degree for Fine Arts. What began as a series of scent-focused exhibitions by Icelandic visual artist Andrea Maack quickly became a line of unisex, appealing perfumes that walk the line between commercial and Avant-garde. Created for an art exhibition, the theme for Smart comes from an empty white gallery space. At first it emits substance and intimacy but as you spend more time and delve deeper the visceral moods unravel, revealing the sensual and the seductive. Smart opens with a luxurious line-up of heady jasmine, luscious vanilla, exotic sandalwood and creamy musk blended carefully with a subtle buckskin leather note that holds the white notes in balance.
