Welsh Rarebit by Robert Burns

50 grams butter
50 grams all-purpose flour
135 grams stout beer, such as Even More Jesus
375 grams heavy cream92b7adc8-239b-425a-a67a-37463dbffd2f--125_Welsh_rarebit
3 grams mustard powder
1 gram cayenne pepper
300 grams aged cheddar cheese, grated
1 loaf Polish rye bread
Worcestershire sauce

  • In a heavy-bottomed pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour, and cook until the color shifts slightly darker, about 4 minutes. Add half the stout, making sure the beer is fully incorporated into the roux before adding the rest. Add half the cream, making sure it is fully incorporated into the mixture before adding the rest. Whisk in the mustard and cayenne to incorporate fully with no lumps. Cook until the mixture thickens nicely, 5 to 7 minutes. Be careful not to burn the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low and slowly add the cheddar, whisking after each addition. Be mindful of the heat: if the cheese begins to separate from the roux, cut the flame entirely. Let the rarebit mixture cool completely.
  • Slice the bread 1¼-inch/3cm thick and toast until golden. Let cool and top each slice with 75 grams of rarebit mixture. Use an offset spatula to spread the mixture evenly over the top of bread. Broil (grill) until bubbling and slightly darkened. Drizzle Worcestershire sauce over the hot rarebit, slice into 5 pieces, and serve immediately.

blood mary mix from food wine

A ffwx-3-takes-on-the-bloody-mary-1ew cardinal rules here: This must be made the night before you plan to drink it, so it can sit overnight. Otherwise, the flavors just don’t come together. And while it looks like a long ingredient list, odds are half of them are in your fridge or spice cabinet already.

The good news? Once the mix is made, it’ll last a while in the fridge and pretty much forever in the freezer, so making a Bloody is as easy as adding vodka and celery.

Now, the recipe: In a quart-sized container, pour 23 ounces of tomato juice—the canned kind is just fine here. Add 6 tablespoons of jarred grated horseradish, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 6 big dashes of Tabasco, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon celery salt, 1/2 teaspoon celery seed, 1 ounce fresh lemon juice, 1 ounce olive brine (just the liquid from whatever green olive jar you have on hand), plus 1 full teaspoon of coarse-ground black pepper.

Stir that all up, let sit overnight and in the morning, get mixing with one of these three recipes.
