Soup Sampler at Commander's
Gumbo is all about flavor; it tastes great, it’s thick, spicy, and it sticks to your ribs. I like to make it for tailgates because it’s one of those dishes that warms you up, and it’s easy to serve a large group of people.

Egg Foo Young
What is egg foo young? A Chinese fritatta, basically. Plus, with a big helping of veggies, you get an easy, healthy meal that's a departure from your everyday omelette. Substitute any of the vegetables in this recipe for other favorites, like bean sprouts or steamed bok choy. Make it heartier by chopping up some cooked Chinese sausage, ham, or shrimp to add to the egg foo young mixture. To make a nice, rich egg foo young sauce, I made a simple roux and flavored it with soy sauce and rice wine vinegar, although a more traditional version uses broth and cornstarch for a gravy.  Click here to see What Are Heirloom Eggs?

For authenticity, Eric recommends using Cajun andouille, a pork-based sausage that is fatty and heavily smoked but not heavily spiced. LaPlace, La., has declared itself the andouille capital, hosting an annual festival every October, but when Eric returns to his family’s home in Los Angeles to host their annual gumbo gathering, he frequents Pete’s Louisiana Style Hot Links in Crenshaw. Says Eric, "We have to buy extra to make sure that there is enough left after everybody snacks on them." If none are available, any smoked pork sausage will work.

Roast Pork
You can’t have crackling without the pig skin, but sadly it has become quite difficult to buy a piece of pork with the rind still intact to make delicious crackling. It needs to be ordered ahead from the butcher, so do your bit and insist on getting it so that this essential part of the enjoyment of roast pork does not die out!

Pudding
It is difficult to make Christmas pudding in small batches – it just doesn’t seem right – so make plenty and give extras away as presents. This recipe makes enough for two large basins but you can make whatever size you want. Only the cooking times will vary. I usually make the puddings in September and store it in a dark cool place or in the fridge until Christmas. They can, however, be kept for a year if refrigerated."The flavours of Matusalem Sherry are so intense it is almost like drinking Christmas pudding – not a wine for glugging. Surprisingly, Port is a good match for the pudding and you can carry on drinking it with the Stilton afterwards “à l’Anglaise”. But at home we usually have Sauternes – à la Française!
