Spinach Chicken Salad with Mango Ginger VinaigretteThis salad celebrates spinach, one of the first local greens of the season. Moist roast chicken and a tropical mango vinaigrette makes this a perfect main course salad.Wild Mushroom Risotto with Peas and Truffle OilComforting risotto gets a spring lift with bright green peas, specialty mushrooms and fresh sprouts. A drizzle of truffle oil elevates it to "special occasion" status.Strawberry Rhubarb TrifleTangy local rhubarb and strawberries nestled between a layer of creamy custard make this a unique spring trifle. Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom and Mustard Cream SauceThis easy and rich dish goes together quickly with just a few ingredients. Serve with your favourite mashed potato recipe. An ideal special occassion meal. Panko Crusted Mustard ChickenPanko is the star in this super easy recipe. The combination of mustard and mayo keeps the chicken super moist. Serve with a nice light garden salad or your favourite steamed vegetable.French 75 with a TwistThis cocktail is a true classic. It's zesty, light, and refreshing and can can be enjoyed with or without alcohol.Lemon Cream with BerriesThis is one of the easiest and most delicious desserts you will ever make using just three ingredients. This delightfully silky, sweet dessert can be garnished with whatever fresh berries you wish.Pasta with Lemon and Toasted BreadcrumbsJill learned this delicious pasta dish while in Sicily. This version includes chicken and features Sicilian Volcano lemon juice married with Filotea Lemon pasta.Chocolate Sauce Pudding CakeThis is a double chocolate hit with a pudding-like cake that has been doused with Toboggan's rich Vanilla Stout Chocolate sauce. Simply fabulous when served with quality vanilla ice cream. Leftovers can be microwaved briefly.Lentils with Beets, Walnuts and Goat CheeseI love lentils, particularly the French green Du Puy lentils. These lentils keep their shape and texture much better than most, and the color is more intense. Once you’ve had these it’s hard to go back to any other kind. This salad features sweet roasted beets and goat cheese with the lentils, along with toasted walnuts and a delicious vinaigrette. One of my favourite main-course salads, it can be served with the lentils warm or chilled.Vegetarian Lentil Shepherd’s PieComfort food at its best, featuring healthy lentils and local root vegetables. Just as satisfying as its meaty counterpart. Chutney, Ham and Cream Cheese PinwheelsThese tasty pinwheels go together quickly as long as you have puffed pastry tucked in the freezer and a jar of Jill's Table Apple Tamarind Chutney.Chocolate Panettone Bread PuddingChocolate panettone on its own is fabulous but make it into bread pudding, warm from the oven and served with ice cream—you have an over-the-top dessert.Coconut Curry Chicken with Cauliflower and ChickpeasStonewall Kitchen maintains a prominent place on our shelves at Jill's Table. One of our absolute favourites is their Coconut Curry Simmering Sauce. We love extending the basic recipe by adding chicken, cauliflower, and chickpeas. TourtièreThis is a special traditional treat Jill makes every Christmas Eve. The pastry is very easy to prepare and so tender and delicious. Serve this with Jill’s Table Apple Tamarind chutney to make it extra special.Baked Brie with Jill’s Table ChutneyThis recipe is the best baked cheese dip for a shared appetizer that is simple, elegant, and sure to please.Hearty Tuscan SoupThis soup is Tuscan simplicity at its best. Great quality olive oil, tomatoes and beans along with some local vegetables. A heaping spoonful of grated cheese is all you will need to round out this satisfying soup!
Ran’s Lemon/Olive Tuna CrostiniThis recipe is another example of how versatile our favourite canned tuna is. We love the combination of the tangy olives with the garlicky aioli. If you want to make this a lunch, spread the mixture over a piece of your favourite toasted bread and cover with mozzarella cheese. Bake in a toaster oven to make it a “tuna melt”.Rana Pasta SaladThis recipe uses two of our all-time favourite ingredients at Jill's Table: Rana ravioli and Sacla oven baked tomatoes with garlic and capers. This is the ideal recipe for a quick pasta salad. The oil in the jar becomes part of your dressing.Peach Blueberry CrispThe best of summer combined in one simple dessert. Let Mary MacLeod's crumbs do most of the work here for you. A delicious way to end a meal.Farro SaladFarro is one of the most ancient grains, with its roots in the Mediterranean. This healthy salad features crisp fennel and cucumber. You can buy great local fennel at the outdoor farmer’s market at Covent Garden Market.Salmon Fresh RollsThis Thai classic gets an update with the addition of smoked salmon and avocado. Perfect for summer entertaining.
