A Look Inside Everyday Dorie
Lemon 'Goop' and Syrup
Chicken and Salad Milanese Style
Triple-Layer Parsnip and Cranberry Cake
Ricotta Spoonable from Everyday Dorie
Makes about 2 cups
Take a peek in my fridge, and you’ll find the usual staples—milk, butter, eggs, yogurt, and my favorite plus-one: 'ricotta spoonable.' I started making it years ago and I’ve probably never made it the same way twice. It’s a mix of ricotta, lots of chopped herbs, freshly grated lemon zest, olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper. It’s simple but special.
I prepare this year-round, changing the herbs according to what I have at hand, but I make it most often in summer, when I’m apt to fill the table with small plates of good stuff, things that don’t need to be eaten in any order and that lend themselves to mixing and matching. Put the spoonable into the mix, and it will match with beet salad, frittata, onion galette, charred peppers and so many other dishes.
A word on the ricotta
If there’s liquid in the container, it’s best to drain the cheese. Line a strainer with a double thickness of damp cheesecloth, place it over a bowl, spoon in the ricotta, pull the cheesecloth around the cheese
and weight it with a plate. Put it in the refrigerator and let it drain for at least 30 minutes, or up to 1 day.
Put the ricotta in a medium bowl. Finely grate the zest of the lemon over it, then halve and squeeze the lemon and blend in the juice. Stir in the shallots, scallions, olive oil, salt and a healthy pinch of pepper. Taste for salt and pepper, then stir in the herbs.
Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
Choices: A dollop of this on a cracker or sliced baguette makes a good appetizer; more of it on dark bread with roasted tomatoes or sliced cucumbers makes a tartine; and a lot of it stirred into pasta makes a dinner.
Storing: This is best the day it is made, but you can keep it for up to 2 days tightly covered in the refrigerator. Stir before using.
