    The radishes in Tibet are large, usually white, high altitude cousins of the daikon radish and are used here as a pickle ingredient. This pickle is very tart and vinegry but mellows over time; it is meant to be used as a condiment, not on it's own. Daikon radish is available year round, allowing this quick pickle to be made any time of the year and stored in the refrigerator for weeks. This pickle is also used as an ingredient in other condiments, such as Lhasa Yellow Achar. This recipe is from the book, " Beyond The Great Wall, Recipes and Travels in The Other China" by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid.

    Tibetan food is usually very mildly seasoned. According to the chef at my favorite Tibetan restaurant, it is the least spicy of the Himilayan cuisines. However, various hot sauces are served on the side. This chili sauce is one of the popular ones. It has two versions, one featuring yogurt, the other with tomato. This sauce does not keep for longer than a few days because the fresh cilentro loses flavor quickly.

    Recipe #432421

    This recipe is one of my favorites that I make often, it's from the cookbook, Cradle of Flavor: Home Cooking from the Spice Island of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, by James Oseland. It's a butter rich cake that was introduced into Indonesian cookery during 4 centuries of Dutch rule. This version of the cake is made in a bundt pan .The cake has traditionally been made in thin layers, however as James Oseland points out,, " although the layered cake is lovely to look at, it tastes the same as single-layer spekkuk, it's made with the same batter; but the bundt pan version is much easier to make."

    Bullock's Tea Room was noted for their delicious and very popular popovers. They are easy to make. The secret is to place the custard cups far apart enough on the baking sheet so that all sides of each popover get the same blast of heat needed to rise evenly. Muffin tins don't work well with popovers. This recipe makes a high-rising puffy popover, that can be served at any meal of the day.

    This is an oldie but goodie that my great aunt used to make years ago. It was in her recipe collection. She found the recipe in "The Old Vanity Fair Tearoom Cookbook", published in the late 1920's. Tea rooms were popular in that era, and especially the Vanity Fair, located at 4 West Fortieth Street, New York City. The tearoom is long gone, but I'd love to see what's at that address now.

    This delicious depression era cake calls for just 1 tablespoons of butter. It's also called Poor Man's Cake. It's a good cake for anyone who wants a reduced fat cake, or one that does not contain eggs. If you don't have applesauce on hand you can substitute 2/3 cup of coffee... can't beat that one for economy. I love these old recipes, it's a glimpse into the past, this one was published in the Los Angeles Times, food section about 20 years ago.

    This is my favorite borscht recipe, it's very delicious, unusual and meatless. It originated in Northern Poland, according to some of my relatives who visit Poland frequently and have sponsored Poles who wanted to immigrate to the states.

The recipe was published in the reader request column of the Los Angeles Times.

    Gorky's Cafe in LA was a one-of-a-kind restaurant located in the garment district. It was named after the 19th century Russian writer, Maxum Gorky; but featured Polish, Russian and other Eastern European foods. All the dishes were made from scratch, they even baked their own bread and had a micro brewery before it became fashionable. The Golabki is one of my favorites especially because of the sauce. This recipe can easily be made as a vegetarian dish which is how I make it.

    Recipe #422067

    This is an interesting and tasty recipe that was in my mom's collection, she got it from her aunt, who found it in a Fanny Farmer Cookbook, circa 1923. It's an oldie but goodie. So called French Dressing was developed in the early part of the 20 th century, and started with using a French vinaigrettee with ketchup added. It's a recipe that has multiple versions and keeps evolving, but it's very much American. One cooking note: This version of French dressing has a good sharp flavor, so less dressing is needed, it's something to keep in mind while tossing the salad.

This recipe was published in the Los Angeles Times, reader request column,

    Recipe #416555

    This is a handy recipe for making rice sheets and noodles, especially the ones that are not readily available, such as the wide rice noodles. The recipe is easy, but I suggest that first you watch a video such as, www.ifoodtv/video/making rice noodles. One video is worth a thousand words. This recipe comes from one of my most treasured books: "Asian Pasta" by Linda Burum, 1985. Linda claims that she can make a batch of rice noodles in much less time than it takes to go to the store, and that the homemade noodles are far superior.

    Recipe #411321

    The monastery is located in the Hollywood Community of Los Angeles at 1977 Carmen Avenue, where the nuns prepare candy and other food products to sell, with the proceeds going to charity. Their heavenly candies are exceptional, which is no surprise because candy making was taught to the nuns by the former owners of Juliet's Candy Shop in Pasadena. When the shop was closed, the couple donated their equipment and recipe collection to the monastery. The nuns make their peanut brittle only once a year, around Christmas time. This recipe has been published in the Los Angeles Times many times, usually around Christmas. Some cooking notes and comments which were provided to the Times by the sisters; raw peanuts are the key to making their brittle. Cooking the peanuts in the syrup gives the candy it's outstanding flavor. The nuns have also stated that this recipe which they have provided to the Times comes as close as any one can come to in duplicating their recipe in a home kitchen. Because the nuns use commercial ingredients and equipment, the end product will not be exactly the same. Note, all recipes which are published in the Los Angeles Times are first tested in the Times test kitchen, (where residential cooking equipment and techniques are used) before the recipe is published in the newspaper. In preparing this recipe, the nuns advise having two cooks available for the pouring and spreading of the hot liquid candy, it makes this step a lot easier.
