NOTES : "My sister gave me the recipe for this creamy pasta salad about 25
years ago," Nola says. "It's great to make for watching football games on
TV. I serve it with potato chips, celery and pickles."

Bobbie's Note: This is so nice with things that we usually have on hand. I
cooked the pasta and egg at the same time and added the corn to the same
pan for the last few minutes of cooking time. Less work, only one pan! I
speeded up the chilled by putting it in the freezer for a few minutes, then
in the fridge. This was extremely delicious!

Olive Oil Panna Cotta

Recipe By :
Serving Size :   Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 10-05 May 2007

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
Zest of 1/4 of a lemon
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
plus a little extra for
finishing the dessert
2 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin powder
1/4 cup cold water
6 blood oranges
1 fennel
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon water
6 Nicoise olives
1 teaspoon sugar
Maldon sea salt to taste

1. Combine the milk, cream, sugar and lemon zest in a medium pot. Bring to
a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. While you
are waiting, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and stir to dissolve.
After the liquids boil remove the pot from the heat and pour the olive oil
into the hot liquid. Add the completely dissolved gelatin to the hot
liquids. Stir to combine thoroughly.

2. Place the pot into a larger container filled with ice water. Stir
occasionally to cool the mixture down. Once the mixture has reached room
temperature use an electric hand mixer to emulsify the olive oil. Divide
the mixture into individual serving containers and refrigerate. Allow the
panna cotta to set overnight.

3. To make candied olives: place pitted chopped olives in a saucepan with 1
teaspoon sugar and 1 teaspoon blood orange juice. Bring to a boil. Place
the olives on a baking sheet and place in a 200-degree-F. oven until
crispy. This will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

4. To make candied fennel: slice the white part only of a fennel into small
strips. Blanch the strips in hot water and remove. Place the fennel strips
into a saucepan with 2 Tablespoons sugar and 1 Tablespoon water. Bring to a
boil and allow to simmer until it coats the fennel and the fennel strips
become translucent.

5. To make a blood orange sauce for serving: juice 4 blood oranges and
strain to remove any pulp. Place the juice in a saucepan and place over
medium high heat. Cook until the juice is reduced by half. Remove the
saucepan from the heat and immediately pour the reduction into a separate
heat-proof container. Segment the remaining 2 blood oranges and cut each
segment into smaller pieces.

6. To serve: dip the panna cotta containers into a bowl of hot water for
several seconds to loosen and unmold onto a plate. Drizzle some of the
blood orange reduction around the panna cotta and garnish with the blood
orange segments, candied olives and candied fennel. Drizzle the entire dish
with a little bit of the olive oil.

Olive Oil Poached Halibut

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 10-05 May 2007

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 ounces halibut
Olive oil
Salt & pepper

**Use a virgin olive oil for sauteing
**Use extra virgin (for the flavor) for poaching

1. Lightly sear the flesh side of the halibut. Salt & pepper the fish.

2. Fill sauté pan with olive oil (enough to reach the top of the fish, but
not cover it!). Warm the oil to about 125 degrees F. The oil should be warm
to the touch, enough to place your finger in and not burn.

3. Salt and pepper the oil.

4. Place the fish in the pan and poach for about 12 minutes.

5. When finished the fish should be firm and warm in the center. The fish
will only be as hot as the oil — it will not be overcooked as long as you
keep the oil at a consistent temperature.

6. Remove the fish and place on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.

7. Place on plate and garnish with fresh lemon juice, drizzle of olive oil
and a pinch of sea salt.

It's actually easier to poach fish in olive oil than water. The fish
poaches at a lower temperature, so the result is that the fish is less
likely to fall apart! Also it infuses the fish with a great flavor and it
keeps the fish super moist.

Many people think that olive oils should only be used for sauteing or salad
dressings, but really you can do much more with it, such as poaching and
baking. Having grown up in Italy, Italian chef Donatella Arpaia is an
expert on the different types of olive oils; in fact, she never used butter
to cook until college.

Unconventional uses for olive oil: Italian chef Donatella Arpaia shares
recipes for unique and tasty dishes.

Bring chicken stock, oil and salt to boil in large serving pot (a
Mongolian Hot Pot is traditional) and keep bubbling over heat.

Arrange noodles and all raw ingredients attractively on large platter. Add
sherry and soy sauce to bubbling broth. Provide guests with chopsticks and
serving bowls. Invite guests to add the raw ingredients to the broth. Let
cook just until fish and shrimp are opaque. Just before guests serve
themselves from the pot, sprinkle leaves from the chrysanthemums on top of

---> Cautionary note: If too much raw ingredients are put into a hot pot at
one time the temperature may be lowered to a point where it becomes unsafe.
It is important to use a heat source that can keep the broth at a safe
temperature. H.
