Campaign for Slow Food

From the Slow Food home page...

Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.

.:: Featured Recipe ::.

Summer Strawberry Pie

1c unbleached flour
1/4c sugar1/4t cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/3c unsalted butter, cubed
1T fresh lemon juice

2 pints strawberries, rinsed, drained, hulled and halved
1/4c sugar
1/4c instant tapioca
2T unsalted butter
1/2t cinnamon
1T fresh lemon juice
1/2t vanilla extract
2T light brown sugar

Prepare the pastry:  Toss the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon together in a bowl.  Using a pastry blender, two knives or your fingertips, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With a fork, stir in the lemon juice just enough for the dough to form a mass.

Gather the dough into a ball, wrap it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 30 mins.

Preheat the oven to 375F

Prepare the filling:  Combine the strawberries, sugar, tapioca, butter and cinnamon in a medium saucepan and stir over low heat until thickened, about 5 mins.  Remove fromthe pan and set aside.

Roll chilled dough out onto a lightly floured surface to form an 11" circle.  Transfer it to a 9" pie pan and press into the bottom and sides.  Trim the dough, leaving a 1" overhang.  Fold the overhang back towards the inside and crimp decoratively.

Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork and line it with foil. shiny side down.fill the pan with dried beans or pie weights and bake for 15 mins.  Remove it from the oven and reduce the heat to 350F.

Remove the foil and the weights, and spoon the filling in to the pie crust. Place it on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the top with the brown sugar.  Bake until bubbling, 45 mins.

Cool the pie on a wire rack for 1 hour.  Then refrigerate it over night. Remove the pie from the refrigerator 30 mins before serving.

Bon Appetit!

Note: This recipe is taken from "The New Basics" cookbook, and let me tell you it is yummy!  No matter what your skill level is, this book has lovely recipes and clear, easy to follow instructions.  If you need help with this or any other recipes and cooking methods, please stop by #dAFoodies!  Remember we have all skill levels here, so someone is always willing to help.

I'd like to submit food photos, but I have to ask if the recipe needs to be in the deviation comment or would a link to it(on my blog) be alright?
dAFoodies Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2009
It would be most appreciated if the recipe was in the deviation comment (easier for posting) :). Your creations look yummy :drool:, and thanks for your interest.
acquiredflavor Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2009   Artisan Crafter
Thank you! OK the next question would be, does it have to be in recipe form? I tend to do a lot of cooking with out recipes and do a lot of approximates :)
dAFoodies Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2009
Write down what you can, and if people choose to, they will just have to go with what you have provided :).

I have a recipe I would like to upload, but where can I get hold of the preview image that you use?
dAFoodies Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009
Hmm, that is kinda the club logo...maybe you can just photograph it. You don't need an image to submit, or even to upload it, just note it to us, and we will do the rest :) When I upload stuff, I use this really amateurish looking graphic that looks like a recipe card ;)
