Quail in Rose Petal Sauce

It's a "two-part" recipe, starting with the Rose Petal Sauce and going on to the recipe for the quail. It is an absolute delicacy, revealing flavors you may never have experienced before. The combination of the anise, roses, and chestnuts alone is sufficient to offer this dish absolute distinction. The addition of the quail and garlic is unforgettable.

Chestnut-crusted Walleye with Morel Mushrooms
Morels and walleye are a natural pairing. The white flesh of the walleye is firm, meaty and delicious. Like trout and other species of freshwater fish, it seems to go particularly well with mushrooms.

Traditional preparations for walleye frequently rely on batter coating and deep-frying, which mask the delicate flavor and texture of the fish. How sad!

Instead, the fish is coated with a layer of crushed dried Michigan chestnut chips. Chestnuts, which contain absolutely no fat, create a light, crisp golden-brown crust and add a wonderfully nutty flavor and tender crunch.

These three ingredients, fish, chestnuts & morels, harmonize together to create an uncomplicated dish with flavors that are simple, yet profoundly satisfying.

Pork & Chestnut Wontons
Chestnuts have been treasured as a delicacy throughout Asia for centuries. Their sweet, gently nutty taste and toothsome texture pair beautifully with the mild flavor of tender pork, as evidenced by the many traditional recipes which use both ingredients.

Wontons are surprisingly easy to make, especially if you use ready-made wonton wrappers, which can be found in most grocery stores these days. Don't worry about making them perfectly on the first try; in cooking, you can almost always eat your mistakes! Rest assured, after two or three, you'll be turning them out like an old pro.

These savory wontons can also be added to chicken stock for a deliciously satisfying dumpling soup, or fried until golden brown for a crisp & crunchy treat. Wontons also freeze exceptionally well, so you can make a big batch and save some for later - if you have any leftovers!

Here's a recipe that is not only great for the holidays, but is just as pleasing and satisfying at any time of the year.
