Daisy and regular guest Taffiny chat about Christmas culinary traditions and Taffiny shares some recipes.

Taffiny Elrod is a professional chef and culinary instructor located in New York City and New York’s Hudson Valley. With over 15 years of professional culinary experience, she has cooked and taught many culinary styles with a special interest in food for health and culinary traditions. Most recently, she taught professional cooking for veterans returning to the work force in New York City before opening a small restaurant with her husband in New York’s Hudson Valley.

Inspired by her success with her own ketogenic/Low Carb High Fat diet, she launched a cooking website called Keto Cooking School where she shares recipes and techniques, and plans to explore the connection between traditional, classical and the ketogenic way of eating.


Taffiny’s Yorkshire Pudding

Preheat oven to 425F (220C)

    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 3 large eggs
    • 2 tablespoons melted fat or butter
    • 1/2 cup unflavoured whey protein powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
    • Additional 1/2 cup hot fat - preferable beef drippings
  • Mix wet ingredients then stir in dry ingredients or mix briefly in blender.

Heat beef fat in a pan or muffin tins in preheated oven.

Add batter and bake at 425F (220C) until puffed and brown.

You can replace the whey powder with egg white powder but use a little less - 1/4 to 1/3 cup.

The quote that Taffiny mentioned during the show - “Hunger is the best sauce” - is actually a very old proverb with no known specific provenance. This article talks about the proverb in some detail.

This week’s end quote is from Virginia Woolf -

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
