Smoke & Vapour recipes

  • 2 white potatoes
  • salt
  • sunflower oil for frying
  • paper kitchen towel
  • smoking gun or home smoker
  • smoking chips (oak and maple)

Peel potatoes into long strips with a potato peeler, then let them lie on a paper towel for a few minutes. Smoke the strips in the smoker for a maximum of 10 minutes, or with the smoking gun for 3 minutes. Lay them on the paper towel again. Heat up frying oil in a pan and fry the strips a few at a time till crisp and golden brown. Place them back onto the paper towel and sprinkle with salt. (If you don't want to serve them right a way, wait till the peel cools and set aside in an airtight container until needed, but no longer than a few days.)

  • 18 quail eggs
  • black tea leaves
  • smoking gun
  • apple wood chips for smoking

for the mayonnaise

  • 2 chicken egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 spoon lemon juice
  • salt
  • ~ 250 ml peanut oil
  • handful fresh parsley and fennel steamed for a few minutes

Cook the quail eggs over a small flame for 2 minutes after the water boils. In the meantime smoke the tea leaves with the smoking gun for 3 minutes then leave under the smoking bell. Add the smoked tea to the saucepan with the eggs. Simmer for 2 minutes longer then let it stand for another 10 minutes. Strain off the tea-infused water and wipe the eggs dry. Place them under the smoking bell and smoke for an extra 3 minutes with the smoking gun. Serve cut in half with the herbal mayonnaise.

For the mayonnaise: Place the two egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice and a pinch of salt in the kitchen robot or blender. While blending, add a small stream of oil continuously till the mayonnaise becomes thick and fluffy. Then add the steamed herbs and blend for another minute.

  • 6 small sweet peppers
  • apple wood chips

for smoked glue

  • dijon mustard with grilled spices
  • smoked sun-dried tomatoes

for dukkah

  • handful of hazelnuts
  • handful of almonds
  • 1/2 handful pistachios
  • 1/2 handful sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon blue thyme
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of smoked paprika powder (spicy)

for popping grains

  • popping sugar

Dukkah can be made several days in advance. Mix all ingredients and toast in the oven (under the grill) at 160ºC for 15-20 minutes. Blend with a grinder into a coarse powder. Smoke with the smoking gun using apple wood chips, then leave under the bell for about 10 minutes. If you don't want the dukkah to be very smoky, smoke only 1/2 or 1/3 of the mixture, then mix with the non-smoked portion.

Smoked glue: chop or grind sun-dried tomatoes in tiny pieces. Smoke with the smoking gun with apple wood, leave under the bell for about 15 minutes. Before serving combine the mustard with the smoked tomatoes. The glue should be easily 'smearable', so go easy on the tomatoes - they're also very salty, so taste after adding a pinch, then decide how much more is needed.

Char peppers with 'flame thrower' or directly on the gas of the stove or wood fire on the 'skin' side. The inside of the pepper should still be rather raw and crispy. Smoke the peppers with the smoking gun and apple wood for 2-3 minutes. Smear the glue on the inside of the peppers and dip in the dukkah. Just before serving, add popping sugar.

Steamed carrot and orange syrup
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 oranges
  • 1 bullion cube
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh coriander

Steam three peeled uncut carrots over water infused with orange peel for about 20 minutes. Blend the carrots and the juice of the three oranges with an electric mixer. Strain, then simmer for about 30 minutes over a low flame till the mixture becomes thick and syrupy. Season with salt, pepper and freshly chopped coriander.

Crackers with smoked pistachios

(from an old Australian Women's Weekly magazine)

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 250 g peeled pistachios smoked with apple wood with smoking gun

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form, then add sugar and continue gently beating until dissolved. Add pistachios. Spread the mixture in a greased baking tray. Bake in the oven at moderate heat for about 30 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool. When cold place the bread in an airtight container and let stand for one or two days. Before serving, cut the bread into slices with a sharp knife. Place the slices in the oven for about 5 minutes till golden brown.

  • 1 l sparkling water (or use the soda maker to add gas bubbles in plain water)
  • 1 l tap water
  • Cherry woodchips

Pour the filtered water in a bottle. Place the end of the smoking gun tube in the bottle (try to close it completely so not much smoke goes out). Smoke the water with cherry wood chips for a few minutes. Close the water bottle with an airtight lid. Shake well, several times over the next 30 minutes. Pour the water in ice cube molds and freeze overnight.

  • 1/2 l boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons yerba mate (cold smoke dried)
  • splash of lemon (to taste)
  • a few slices of ginger (to taste)
  • agave syrup (we used the one smoked over volcanic rocks in Oaxaca)
  • mesquite wood chips

Wet the mate with cold water, strain. Add ginger and pour boiling water over it. Infuse for 5-6 minutes. When it cools down a to about 50C add agave syrup and lemon to taste. Smoke the tea using the smoking gun and reserve in the fridge. You can sparkle the tea if so desired (Talk to Kate Rich about their DIY sparkler next time!)

Steam leak, radishes and parsnip with rosemary oil and vanilla. Steam Jerusalem artichoke and cauliflower on milky oolong tea. Shock under icy water to prevent from overcooking. Keep in separate containers in the bain marie.

For the 'sediment'

  • 1 whole celeriac root
  • 500g salt
  • 500g flour
  • 300g water

Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Mix the salt, flour and water into a dough, roll it out and use it to cover the celeriac (unpeeled). Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 160ºC and cook for another 35-45min, depending on the size. Leave to cool down, then store in the fridge overnight. The next day, slice the celeriac thinly on the mandoline and reserve the slices. They're quite fragile!

For the grit:

  • 1 cup black quinoa
  • 1 cup black (beluga) lentils
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • salt and pepper

For the quinoa: add one cup of water and steam (~5 minutes, 10 minutes resting) For the lentils: add 3 cups of water and boil it down (~20 minutes). Mix quinoa and lentils and add coconut oil, salt and pepper. Reserve in the fridge and warm up just before serving.

Whisk butter mixture into powder mixture; spread on prepared baking sheet and transfer to oven. Bake for 5 minutes; rotate baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes more. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Break into soil-like consistency and reserve in an airtight container.

For the fertiliser

  • 8g applewood chips
  • 200g water
  • 125g butter
  • pinch of salt

Toast applewood chips in a pan to release the aromas and pour water over them. Let it infuse for 7-8 minutes, then strain discarding the wood. Heat the liquid and whisk in the butter to emulsify it. Keep warm in the bain marie.

Layer each vegetable with some grit and soil, every few layers place a celeriac sediment in between. On top put a thicker layer of soil and decorate with cauliflower florets, sprouts and cress.

Served with:

  • 1 part beetroot
  • 1 part Punt Emes
  • 4/5 Fernet Branca / Averna
  • dash of lime
  • dash of Angosutra bitters
  • sliver of grated ginger

Non alcoholic:

  • 1 part beetroot

Juice, mix and shake.

  • 500 g Russian fresh cheese
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 6 Tbsp semolina
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Ts salt
  • 1 Ts baking powder (not needed if using self-raising flour)

Mix all ingredients. If the mixture is too crumbly, add a bit of remaining egg-whites (slowly, 3 might make the mixture too liquid). Leave the dough to rest for 15-20 minutes. Steam for 10 minutes at 100C.

At Smoke & Vapour we used the recipe below, but it wasn't satisfactory. The balls collapsed in the steamer to a relatively flat cake. This needs further experimentation (recipe above, use only egg yolks, use self raising flour instead of baking powder, get 'ostro brasno' from Croatia, perhaps these dumplings cannot be steamed but must be boiled…. NOTE: I tried making the dumplings using the same ingredients from S&V a few days later with the recipe above and they worked MUCH better.

* 250g eastern European quark/cottage cheese * 2 egg yolks * 2 teaspoons of salt * 2 tablespoons sour cream * 3 tablespoons semolina * 5 tablespoons spelt flour * 1/2 teaspoon baking powder * 2 beaten egg-whites * a dollop of Creme d'Issigny (or sour cream) for serving Mix all ingredients, add beaten egg-whites at the end. Form balls and steam in the bamboo steamer for about 7-10 minutes. In the mean time melt the butter and add bread-crumbs. Stir until golden brown and crunchy. We had sifted the breadcrumbs, used the coarse crumbs under the dumpling, fine on top. Take the dumplings out of the steamer and cover in a dusting of breadcrumbs.

  • 1 cup bread crumbs
    • 2/3 pumpernickel bread
    • 1/3 wheat crackers
    • pinch of salt
    • 50g of butter

Dry pumpernickel bread overnight, or in the oven. Break into small pieces and toast. Blend in the kitchen blender together with the crackers. Sieve to get smooth and rough crumbs. Reserve separately. Just before serving, melt the butter in a frying pan and fry the bread crumbs until they become crispy.

Serve with cold smoked Creme D'Issigny and warm smoked tomato jam.

For the smoked tomato Jam:

  • 200 g cherry tomatoes or plum tomatoes

Smoke tomatoes, garlic and onion with smoking gun for 3 minutes or home smoker for 20 minutes. Place in a baking tray and combine with chili, cinnamon, orange water, and saffron in a baking tray. Cook in the oven at 180° for 20-30 minutes till the skin of the tomatoes begins to peel off. Peel the tomatoes, blend with the rest of the ingredients with electric mixer. Add salt and pepper if needed.

Strong smoke

Place purple potatoes in a red clay pot, mix with coconut oil, salt, pepper and rosemary and bake/smoke in the green egg on low heat for 2 hours. Marinate white potatoes in truffle oil with rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper for an hour. Place in alder bag and smoke in the oven for 1 hour. At the end combine both potatoes on a black plate and smoke for 1 minute with the smoking gun (hickory wood). Serve under the smoking bell, with smoke still present.
