For this recipe, Fisun Ercan was freely inspired by the lamb kebab, normally served in Turkey with mashed eggplant, replacing the usual pomegranate seeds with Quebec blueberries. Although this preparation appears in the chapter devoted to summer, the chef, true to her philosophy, cooked it for La Presse with what she had on hand: eggplant caviar, fermented blueberries and savory in the oil, all potted last fall.

Blueberry pudding is a classic dessert from the Quebec countryside. Almost every family has its own recipe, with its own set of quirks. It was usually prepared in a round dish, explains memoirist Rose-Hélène Coulombe, who is now vice-president of the Société d’histoire de Saint-Romuald, in Lévis. The recipe we offer is inspired by that of the maternal grandmother of Monique Parent, treasurer of the organization.

Until the last century, cooking was often done from memory, with approximate measurements. The version below, with more precise quantities, was cooked in a bain-marie, but uncovered, which gives it an air of kinship with cobblers, American desserts also popular in Quebec. Baking under cover will result in a paler, fluffier cake.
