          Servings: people
          Instructions
          1. Pat steaks dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
          2. Add oil to a medium stainless steel skillet and heat on high. When the oil is hot add steaks and cook 4 to 4 1/2 minutes per side for medium-rare, flipping only once and getting a good sear on both sides.
          3. Remove steaks to a plate and cover with foil.
          4. Add balsamic vinegar, beef broth and rosemary to the same pan whisking to pick up any beefy bits left behind by the steak. Continue to cook over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes until sauce is reduced by at least half and can coat the back of a spoon. Remove rosemary sprig.
          5. Turn heat to low and whisk in butter one chunk at a time, allowing the butter to be incorporated before adding more. Once all the butter is incorporated remove from heat and adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over steak or on the side as a dipping sauce. Makes about 1/3 cup of sauce.
          Recipe Notes

          Cooking time for steaks will be dependant on size.  The steaks I used were approximately 8 ounces each and 1 1/2 " thick.

              Servings: peach halves
              Instructions
              1. Preheat grill or oven to 350℉. If using grill, turn on side burners only, cooking peaches in the centre over indirect heat.
              2. Using a food processor, blend almonds, sugar and spices until a course crumb is achieved. Add oatmeal and pulse several times to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture is evenly mixed and crumbly.
              3. Wash peaches, cut in half vertically and remove pit. Lay peach halves cut side up in a cast iron skillet, trimming bottom slightly if needed to make peaches sit flat. Scoop 3tbsp (lightly packed) crumb mixture onto each peach half. Press down mixture until flat and covering entire peach half. Place in centre of grill using indirect heat or alternatively place in oven and cook for 40-50 minutes until peaches are tender and crumble is golden and crisp.
              4. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly for warm peaches. Serve with ice cream, sweetened whipped cream or yogurt.

                  Instructions
                  1. In a shallow bowl stir together flour, salt and pepper. Set aside. Cut off fillet from chicken breast if attached. Slice each chicken breast horizontally into two pieces. Cut each piece in half, giving 4 pieces of similar size per chicken breast, plus the fillet if included. Place each piece, including fillet between two pieces of parchment paper. Pound with a flat mallet until 1/4" thick.
                  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Toss chicken pieces in flour and shake off excess. Fry half of the chicken pieces 2 minutes per side and remove to plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and chicken.
                  3. Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tbsp of butter to the pan, add chopped shallot and sauté for 1 minute until softening but not browning. Add wine, stirring and scraping the pan to remove all the cooked bits. Stir in broth and reduce for 3-4 minutes until about 1/2. Whisk in mustard and remaining butter, small chunks at a time, allowing each to incorporate before adding more. Stir in lemon juice and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper. Add chicken cutlets back to pan and spoon with sauce. Serve immediately.
