Surf and Turf for 4
Pan-Seared Filet Mignon
For a well-crusted steak with a quick pan sauce, sear on the stovetop (in the right size pan) and finish in the oven.

Rich and Velvety Shrimp Bisque
We take a circus of recipes and come up with a class act that relies on an unusual approach to extract flavor from the shrimp.
Rustic Free-Form Apple Tartlets
A cream cheese dough, two kinds of apples, and a sprinkle of sugar during baking create a tart that combines a moist filling that is rich apple flavor with a tender but sturdy crust.
