EGGPLANT BRUSCETTA TOPPER

  • 2lbs classic Black King Italian eggplant, peeled to leave 1” stripes and cut into 1” thick cubes
  • Cheap olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 cubanelle pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small Spanish onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 sprigs thyme, destemmed
  • 1/8 cup red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • 1/8 cup pine nuts
  • Salt, sugar (or honey) and pepper, to taste
  • 1 good, crusty baguette, sliced, brushed with olive oil and toasted
  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with paper towels. Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on the paper towels and sprinkle them with salt. Let stand for 1 hour. Pat the eggplant dry with paper towels. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

    In a large, heavy bottomed pan, heat the oil over medium high. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can test the heat of the oil by dropping slices of onion in – when it’s ready, tiny bubbles will form around the edges. Once it’s good and hot, add the eggplant in batches if necessary and fry for about 3-4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggplant to fresh paper towels to drain.

    Pour all but about a tablespoon of the oil off of the pan you used for frying (using an empty coffee can is good for this) and replace the pot over heat. Add the thyme, peppers, onion and garlic to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until they begin to lose their shape, about 6-8 minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper, sugar or honey to taste along the way, until everything coalesces into a nice, thick sauce. Return the eggplant to the skillet, stir gently to coat and cook for 3 minutes, or until combined. Stir in the red wine vinegar and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Taste for seasoning, adding salt or vinegar as needed. Let cool to room temperature, or refrigerate until lightly chilled, about 20 minutes, then stir in your golden raisins and pine nuts before serving atop crostini toasts.

    This week on Chef's Story, Dorothy speaks with Brooks Headley, Head Executive Pastry Chef at Del Posto in New York City. Tying together his early passion for music and drumming with food and dessert, he talks with Dorothy about performing as both a musician and a chef, finding his start reading cookbooks, and utilizing his Italian roots as an inspiration in his dishes. In May of 2013, Headley won the prestigious "Outstanding Pastry Chef" from the James Beard Foundation for his work at the New York restaurant, Del Posto. As a recent graduate, he tells Dorothy of his story finding a job as a file clerk after graduation, and ultimately ditching the suit and tie and finding a job at cooking at Galileo da Roberto Donna. Eventually, Headley moved on to work at The Ritz-Carlton and Tosca, and to Los Angeles where he spent time in the kitchen under master bread baker Nancy Silverton at Campanile. Unable to stay away from the East coast, Headley crossed the country again to return to DC, this time to assume a position at acclaimed Komi, where he ran the pastry program. He made his New York debut briefly at Compass, where he became known for imaginative renditions of classic desserts, as in his signature deconstructed key lime pie. But as soon as he discovered that Del Posto was in need of a pastry chef, he leaped at the opportunity to join the Batali-Bastianich family, work under Executive Chef Mark Ladner, and return to his Italian roots. Learn more about Brooks Headley's story and inspiration, and the latest desserts that he continues to explore and invent today. Looking to step up your dessert and pastry game? Tune-in to learn from one of the most highly recognized pastry chefs today! This program has been sponsored by Consider Bardwell Farm.

    "When the guests come in, it's our job to give them an experience that blows them away." [10:50]

    "It's our job, especially at the end of the meal, to deliver to the guests what they want." [40:20]
