Confetti Cauliflower fritters

August 23, 2017

I am cleaning the fridges after having company on and off for a few weeks. There are odds and ends of beautiful local produce that I’d like to use and create room on the shelves for my next market outing, which in the summer can be every day. These delicious fritters were the result of fridge clean-up. I had a few florets of white, purple and orange cauliflower that I used as crudites (hence the... View Article

Corn-feta fritters with yogurt-dill sauce

August 17, 2017

We eat a lot of corn now that it is in season, locally grown and so sweet and tender. Occasionally we have a cob or two leftover, cooked or uncooked, and that’s when I like to make corn fritters. The simplest sauce to serve with it is a tangy yogurt with dill and a sprinkling of good salt. It’s fragrant, tangy and refreshing with the fried fritters. I took the pics outside and had to...

4-Cheese fritters with green and red tomato jam

July 7, 2016

I haven’t made cheese fritters in a while. After trying them at a cooking class party a few years ago I made them a few times but then moved on to other things. Last night I needed a few appies for a group of 6 who was coming over for a glass of wine before dinner at a local winery. I was browsing my blog, found these long lost fritters and felt up to the...

Corn fritters with roasted red pepper mayo

June 16, 2015

Corn fritters make a lovely change of pace at lunch or dinner, and they can be served as an appetizer with the mayo as a dipping sauce. I made the fritters batter in the food processor, pulsing everything a few times so the fritters still retain texture. Cook them in a skillet on medium heat, to allow them to cook through and the outside to become golden. Too high heat may cook the outside fast... View Article

Artichoke Fritters with Sorrel Aioli

May 24, 2015

It’s a perfect summer day here today and I was lazying in the hammock for a while reading a book but soon visions of the kitchen lured me in and I stepped inside to see what I can make. I am (almost) always ready to cook something. No need for dinner today as we are off to a Joy Road dinner in Penticton so I thought perhaps a little appie to have before we leave... View Article

Fried Potato Cakes

August 5, 2014

Potato cakes, latkes, potato pancakes, all describe the same thing: potatoes mixed with onion, eggs and flour, formed into cakes and fried in a little oil. I am kind of addicted to these things. When I go to the market in Calgary there is no way I am not going to stop at Margarita’s for their fabulous latkes with sour cream as well as take some home for “later” which often ends up much sooner than...

Cauliflower Fritters

May 13, 2014

I open the small metal jars containing cumin and cinnamon and the sweet and pungent scents waft towards me, their perfume filling the air around the kitchen. This is definitely Ottolenghi-land. I have been cooking my way through a few of my cookbooks and Ottolenghi’s collection sits at the top of the pile. This one, titled simply Ottolenghi, the cookbook, was much anticipated and did not disappoint. It is full of vegetable centered recipes and... View Article

Kale and Feta Buttermilk Fritters

November 21, 2013

Fritters recipes usually get a lot of clicks on the blog. What does that say about us I wonder. We seem to like fried food. These little fritters are very easy to make and I only brush the pan with oil so they don’t stick. They are not fried in oil like you would normally expect fritters to be. You can serve them with sour cream, lemon butter, salsa or other toppings. They fit into... View Article

Cauliflower Fritters

September 16, 2013

Once in a while I make fritters. I don’t deep fry them in oil but rather cook them on a lightly oiled electric griddle, much like you would cook pancakes. They are delicious and can be served as an “entree” of a vegetarian meal, or if you make them small they are nice as an appetizer. I posted other fritters recipes a while back here and here and they generated a lot of traffic on the... View Article

Cheese Fritters with Savoury Bell Pepper jelly

July 5, 2012

Since sunday I have had cheese fritters twice, both delicious. First time was at a hands-on cooking class party to celebrate my dear friend Marilyn’s significant birthday. We gathered at the home of Sylvia and Ray, owners of Wine & Thyme Cooking School in Kelowna and for a few hours got our hands wet and prepared some lovely foods based on recipes provided by Sylvia and under her supervision. Sylvia is Cordon Bleu trained and... View Article
