BOND Potato chipsFrom BOND restaurant, The Langham Hotel, Boston

• Canola Oil
• 1 pound russet potatoes
• Alder Wood Smoked Sea Salt

1. Scrub and rinse potatoes
2. Preheat in deep fat fryer to 350 degrees
3. Line a large cookie sheet with paper towels
4. Using a mandolin or a sharp knife, slice potato to about a 1/16 in. in thickness. Carefully add the slices a few at a time to the hot oil. Using a spider, constantly move the slices in the hot oil for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Remove the chips with the spider, allowing some of the excess oil to drain off. Move the finished chips to the towel lined cookie sheet and shake to remove additional oil and season with smoked salt. Continue slicing and frying the potatoes in small batches.

Soda Bread Corned Beef Sandwiches

April 16th, 2010

Executive Chef Jared Hargreaves, Harvard Gardens Restaurant, Boston
(Makes one sandwich)
• Irish soda bread
• 4 ounces of thin sliced cooked corned beef
• 3 slices Irish bacon (a good smoked bacon will also work)
• 3 ounces cabbage
• 1.5 ounces of red wine vinegar
• 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
• 1 ounce of stone ground mustard
• 2 ounces of a creamy blue cheese (I like Cashel Blue)
• 2 ounces of mayonnaise

1. Chop the bacon into small pieces and cook over medium heat in a flat-bottomed sauté pan, stirring occasionally.
2. Thinly slice the cabbage. When the bacon is starting to brown, add the cabbage followed by the vinegar, mustard, and brown sugar. Cook until the sugar is dissolved.
3. In a food processer, blend the blue cheese and mayonnaise.
4. Toast two slices of Irish soda bread.
5. Spread both slices of bread with blue cheese mayonnaise.
6. Place 4 ounces of corned beef on the bread and top with the warm cabbage-bacon mixture.
Place the remaining soda bread slice on the sandwich and enjoy.
