Help with 2 recipes (quantities of ingredients)
I am trying to create recipes. Well I have no problem with ideas, but I need to determine the quantity of each ingredient in the recipe without being able to try it out before it's time to prepare (this is for my cooking school).
Crostini w/ honey balsamic glazed figs, cambozola and radicchio
3 baquettes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
I was thinking of cooking chopped dried figs in a pot with honey and balsamic and reduce the liquid until thick. Then I will process the mixture with cambozola and spread on the crostini's. Topped with sauted radicchio (olive oil, minced garlic).
Fried wonton chips w/ avaocado, crab, chives, lime juice, tarragon
Wonton wrappers (72)
Was thinking I could go 24/24 on the crab/avocado. Or go 32/24 or 32/16.
So I would fry the wonton wrappers into chips. And spread the mixture on top of each. Or I might even do a crab ragoon with this mixture.
Any help in trying to figure out the quantity of each ingredient needed would be greatly appreciated.
