Parmesan Tuiles with Spicy Tuna Ricotta and Proscuitto Salad | A Brown Table

I decided to rearrange the furniture in the living room to make more space for a new bicycle for M (I already have one) which also involved moving my cookbook bookcase. In my mind, I don’t have enough cookbooks (and probably never will) but in M’s mind I have enough. I can sit for hours just sifting through my cooking magazines and books, fantasizing about what I might cook for us at home. I try to keep a diverse collection and like to have books from all over the world but strangely enough, I realized I have little to none on African or Scandinavian cooking. Do you have any good suggestions for me? I have several on Middle Eastern and one or two books with a little bit of North African food but I’m always hungry for more.  

I have a recipe for these easy-to-make, yet “fancy” looking parmesan tuiles on the lovely, Common Table Co. Fill these savory cones with my tuna salad or anything you like, they’re perfect to entertain with or for that moment when you’re watching the Oscars. My one tip, fill the cones just before serving them or they will get soft depending on how much moisture is in your filling and you want the cone crisp when you take that bite.

  1. So… this recipe totally reminds me of the cones in the French Laundry cookbook, which I’ve made for two parties. Let’s just say that I had a rough time with those… but when I was successful, it was SO SO SO delicious, that I was inspired to make them again. Now, having seen your beautiful tuiles (a lovely word, though, out of context it does sound kind of funny), I’m definitely going to have to give these a go.

  2. Wow, these are gorgeous and so delicious looking, I always know I will find a creative recipe when I come by here. SO GOOD!! Let me know if you get any good cookbook suggestions! šŸ™‚

  3. These are incredible! So elegant, I just adore them. They certainly look like a fancy party food, though I get the feeling they might be a challenge to make…

  4. Scrumptious! I wish I had these last night while watching the Oscars.
    Like you, I wish I had a broader range of cookbooks. Most of mine are american, British and French. If you find a fabulous Scandinavian book, please let me know.
