Re:Shaved Cucumber Salad

What? No salt or any other seasonings? This recipe is severely lacking in this regard, and does not come up to reasonably expected standards. Hopefully, the magazine will work to get back to its roots.

Re:Roasted Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Salad with White Truffle Vinaigrette

Contrary to another post, one can easily find truffle oil with actual truffles from many sources; my most recent purchase was through Amazon. On the subject of Moveable feast, Episode 4 of Season 1 does not contain this recipe, although chef Scott Samuel is featured. I looked for it because the quantities of ingredients seem quite far off.

Re:Salmon Hash with Dilled Crème Fraîche

The first time we made this, we thought it wasn't very good. A couple of months ago we thought we'd try again, but still found it not good. The flavors just don't marry well in this recipe, in spite of the fact that we love salmon and eat if often.

Re:Cider & Bacon Baked Beans

The flavors are simply wrong for baked beans. The pumpkin pie spices detract considerably, and the rich, hearty flavors expected in a baked bean recipe are completely missing.

Re:Spicy Coconut Curry Sauce for Seared Scallops

Great southeast Asian flavors that go very well with the scallops. My wife and I make this dish often, and we and our friends love it. We usually use only cilantro as the herb, and we use yellow onion rather than white, both of which better suit our flavor and texture preferences. We serve over jasmine rice.

Re:Baked Ziti with Tomato, Mozzarella & Sausage

Incredibly delicious and easy to make.

Re:Paella

The result was, indeed, great. However, the tedious preparation of all the ingredients isn't really necessary. The same delicious result can be achieved using frozen artichoke hearts, jarred roasted peppers, and canned tomatoes. Also, forget grating an onion or a tomato; after several frustrating minutes, you'll discover that it basically doesn't work. We've made the dish using both the as-written and simplified approaches, and won't make the as-written recipe again.
