I attempted several of the dishes he created. One of the most memorable was the Homemade Caramelized Cranberry sauce. A few days before, I cooked this recipe up. It was fairly simple so it seemed.
3/4 cup of sugar
2 cup fresh cranberries
zest and juice of 1 orange
1 oz port
2 star anise
4 cardamon pods
Place sugar, star anise and cardamon in a heavy-bottom skillet and caramelize. Add the cranberries and cook until they start to blister and pop. Meanwhile, core, peel and thinly slice 2 apples. Add to pan once the cranberries blister. Deglaze with port and add orange zest and juice.
Cook for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken.
Cool and refrigerate until needed.
Can be made 3-4 days in advance. Serve cold or room temperature.
