Naan Recipe

A flatbread is a bread made with flour, water and salt, and then rolled into flattened dough. Many flatbreads are unleavened—made without yeast—although some are slightly leavened, such as pita bread and naan.

Naan, nan or khamiri is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread found in the cuisines of West, Central and South Asia.
Flatbread was already known in Ancient Egypt, the Sumerians discovered that edible grains could be mashed into a paste and then baked/hardened into a flatbread.

Jewish matza is an unleavened bread (such as matzoh which is not prepared with leavening agents) are usually flatbreads and hold special religious significance to adherents of Judaism and Christianity.

Coeur a la Creme Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bottle chutney
  • Crackers, for serving
Directions:

Place the cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and whip until it is firm like whipped cream. On low speed, slowly add the cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Beat on high speed until the mixture is very thick.

Line a 6-inch 6-inch sieve with a few layers of cheesecloth, allowing the excess to drape over the sides. Pour the cream mixture into the cheesecloth and smooth the top. Fold the excess cheesecloth over the top of the cream. Place the mold on a plate or suspend the sieve over a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to serve, unmold the creme upside down onto a plate and pour the chutney over the top, allowing it to drip down the sides. Serve chilled with crackers.
