Feast-Worthy Recipes from the Chef at Clarke

We recently met Executive Corporate Chef John Craig of Clarke at the 7 Tide Showroom in the Seaport, where he whipped up a holiday feast on Wolf’s professional grade (and time-saving!) appliances. We are certainly thankful for the following recipes and wanted to share….

Herb-roasted Cornish Game Hens, prepared in the Wolf M-Oven

Cornish Game Hen Recipe

  • 4 Cornish game hens
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon thyme leaves, chopped
  • ¼ cup Lemon Vinaigrette*

In the M-oven:

  • Select gourmet
  • Select meat
  • Select poultry
  • Select whole bird
  • Select unbrined
  • Select weight under 12 pounds

Directions: Insert probe in the breast, making sure to cover as much meat as possible.

Once game hens are roasted, portion them in breast and thigh pieces.

If desired, reinsert the pieces in the oven at convection roast at 450 degrees F° for a couple of minutes to crisp up the skin before serving.

*To Make the Lemon Vinaigrette:

  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallot
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ teaspoon crushed dried oregano
  • 3 cups of blended oil

Classic Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

Recipe for Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, washed and quartered
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cup of heavy cream—warm
  • 1 stick of butter, room temperature, cut into dice

Directions: Place the potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with 1 to 2 inches cold water and season generously with salt. The water should taste like seawater! Bring the pot of water to a boil and cook potatoes until they are fork-tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and pass through a food mill or ricer.

Bring the heavy cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Once the cream has come to a boil, remove from the heat.

While the potatoes are still hot, add 1/3 of the cream and butter and stir well.

Repeat this process 2 more times until all the cream and butter are incorporated.  

Taste the potatoes for seasoning and add salt, if needed.

Serve immediately or cover and keep warm until ready to be served.
