Text 31 Aug 106 notes An Earl Grey Tea Party for Captain Picard Day

foodreplicator:

As you’re probably already aware, the 16th of June is celebrated as Captain Picard Day. He’s a role model! Captain Picard Day is usually celebrated by making artwork of all types which somehow represents Captain Picard. But I got to thinking: surely there needs to be some food for Captain Picard Day too! Taking inspiration from his favourite drink, I present - an Earl Grey Tea Party for Captain Picard Day.

For our tea party, we have some Earl Grey shortbread biscuits, an Earl Grey MarTEAni (made with Earl Grey infused gin and served in a teacup, or a martini glass if you prefer), and some Earl Grey cupcakes with lemon icing. Not shown: some actual Earl Grey tea, hot! The beauty of all of these recipes is that if you don’t like Earl Grey tea, you can substitute for any other black tea you like.

The full recipes and more photos are under the break, but here’s a handy clickable list to go straight to a specific recipe:

foodreplicator:

Ah, Risa. That fabled place of pleasure, general fun and debauchery, that we all want to visit (well I do, anyway). While it’s designed specifically for all sorts of pleasurable activities, it also has some hidden dangers - as Malcolm Reed and Trip Tucker discovered to their peril (Enterprise: Two Days and Two Nights

Text 31 Aug 30 notes Tera nut souffle

foodreplicator:

Apparently I’m in a souffle-making mood. Specifically, souffles from Voyager. This one was made by Tuvok when he temporarily lost his memory, and like his other desserts made during this time, is another culinary triumph (Voyager: Riddles). Essentially, if you like nutella, you’ll like this souffle - because that’s what it tastes like. No wonder Neelix continued to make and enjoy this souffle after Tuvok’s accident was long past. 

This recipe makes 2 or 3 super rich individual souffles or the size shown below. Honestly, if I made these again, I’d probably make them in smaller containers - they really are that rich. If you wish, you can only use half of the chocolate custard mixture and have some slightly lighter, less rich souffles. The remaining chocolate custard can be frozen until needed for more souffles.

Text 31 Aug 200 notes Vulcan Spice Tea

foodreplicator:

Although this spice tea is clearly enjoyed by Tuvok and Captain Janeway (VOY: Alliances), I would also like to think that it is a common drink on all of Vulcan, because it is refreshing, spicy and logical all at the same time. I am a little suprised to see Janeway drink anything other than coffee, but can understand why a coffee drinker would enjoy the strong flavours of this tea. 

While I have listed quantities of spices below, the recipe is very flexible - if you want more of any spices, feel free to add it! Remember to steep your spices for a few minutes to allow the flavours to develop. It is a bit difficult to only make the amount of spice needed for a single cup, so I suggest you make the quantities below and store the mix in a jar - pre-made spice tea, whenever you want it! The recipe below does have quite a spicy finish - if you want to lower that a little, use less peppercorns and ground ginger.

Text 31 Aug 49 notes Tulaberry wine

foodreplicator:

If you’re going to do business in the Gamma Quadrant, sooner or later you’re bound to come across tulaberry wine. Produced by several races in the Gamma Quadrant, it doesn’t take a Ferengi to work out the importance of tulaberry wine to trade in the Gamma Quadrant…or does it?! (DS9: Rules of Acquisition). This sweet wine seems to be drunk in great quantities and having tried some myself, I can see why!

This is yeast-fermented fruit wine made in the same way basic alcoholic cider is made. You will need a cider making kit or at the very least some winemakers’ yeast. I used this kit which is made in Australia but also ships overseas. This kit is useful as you can leave your juice to ferment in soft drink bottles. But you can employ far more advanced methods if you so desire! In addition, I used frozen blueberries that I then juiced and strained, but if you can find blueberry juice feel free to start with that instead.

Text 31 Aug 10 notes Rodeo Red’s Red-Hot, Rootin’-Tootin’ Chili

foodreplicator:

I am always impressed by Neelix’s cooking. He’s able to draw great flavours out of the most boring ingredients, isn’t afraid to experiment and - as we see here - turns to history as a source of inspiration. In this case classic American cuisine in the form of chili con carne (VOY: Message in a Bottle). And, given the crew members’ reaction, it sounds like Neelix’s chili packed quite a punch!

Making chili is an all day affair, but all of the work is done at the start. After you’ve got all the ingredients in, it’s just a matter of time. Given Neelix’s description of his chili having lots of jalapenos in it, I’ve made sure that the primary chile used is chipotle. You can also up the jalapeno quotient by adding fresh or pickled jalapenos once the chili is done. I’ve added a combination of other chiles too, to provide more flavour and variety in spice level. Just remember to have some antacid on hand to avoid any uncomfortable reactions from nearby crew members!

foodreplicator:

The Cardassian Sunrise (not to be confused with the Samarian Sunset) seems to be a popular drink in the Star Trek universe. It is not only available in Quark’s Bar, which is not surprising, given the proximity to Cardassia, but is also known several centuries earlier - at least in an…

Text 31 Aug 34 notes Osol Twists

foodreplicator:

It seems that Bajorans - while enjoying a wide variety of dishes - do have a bit of a sweet tooth. Take for example their Jumja sticks - very delicious, but so sweet it is hard to finish one. It is a good thing that there are other options out there - including these Romulan Osol twists, as recommended to Kira Nerys by Senator Cretak (DS9: Image in the Sand) as an alternative to the super sweet jumja stick.

These osol twists are candied orange peel, and definitely fulfill the requirements for a tart, not super-sweet dessert. These are quite easy to make and only involve three ingredients. After you peel your oranges, you could always use the juice to whip up a couple of coco no-nos!

Text 31 Aug 66 notes Miles O’Brien’s potato casserole

foodreplicator:

Miles O’Brien – keeping the recipes of his childhood alive. We have already seen his fondness for corned beef hash, and now we have another dish from the O’Brien household: potato casserole. I am not sure where Miles (or was it his mother?) got the idea of adding capers to the dish, but unlike Keiko, I think they are a great addition.

This dish is essentially a scalloped potato recipe where the potatoes are diced rather than cut into thin slices. It is super rich but very delicious – so I am not surprised Keiko found it a bit overwhelming. I should note that this dish was requested by a reader and that I have a few more reader requets coming up! If there is a particular dish you would like to see, get in touch and I will add it to the list of upcoming dishes.

Text 31 Aug 66 notes Raktajino

foodreplicator:

Raktajino: the favourite drink of the swing shift and Starfleet captains alike. While a Klingon drink, it seems to be almost more popular with many other races than with the Klingons on Deep Space Nine. And apparently also popular with Star Trek viewers - I have received more requests for a raktajino than any other dish!

Like the Bloodwine, I have a feeling this will not be the last time I’ll be trying out Raktajino recipes. I have left the milk/cream as optional in the recipe below, but if you feel you would enjoy a Raktajino in the same way Jadzia Dax sometimes liked to take hers, feel free to add a few splashes. Likewise, feel free to add more sugar for a taste more suited to Jake Sisko.
