Recipes

  • Parmesan crusted chicken

    This is a seemingly simple method for cooking chicken breasts but some sort of magic takes place; the succulence of the chicken is quite astonishing.

  • Domaine de L'Arlot bread

    This superb bread recipe comes from Domaine de l’Arlot in Burgundy (France) where it is made every day by the lady of the house, Madame de Smet. Madame, as you might imagine, entertains a lot of visitors to the highly acclaimed Domaine and needs food preparation to be as easy as pouring great wine. 

    Joan Lawrence of Aurum Wines in Central Otago, whose son Brook worked at Domaine de l’Arlot for a time and returned home clutching the recipe, is the source.
