The attachment worked, but I don't know if it's me or the resolution, but I can't read it. Do you have the recipe for tiramisu? Thanks for all you have listed thus far!!

Yes it does, and I had it and now, cant find it. I found out how to get it from one of the carnival chef's on the night of the gala buffet. He was trying to sell some of the carnival cookbooks, and I asked him if the chocolate melting cake receipe was in there. He said no that it wasn't but that if I ask my waitress, she could get a copy for me.

If I find my copy, I will definately post it here. This may be a good place to guarantee that it does not get lost. If anybody else is going soon on a cruise, please ask your waitor from a copy and then post it if I haven't.

For those of you who haven't had it, try it. It was great!

Caribbean Pepper Pot Soup
Serves 6

2 TBSP Vegetable Oil
1 Cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3 cups sliced okra
1 cup chopped red pepper
1 cup choped green pepper
1 cup diced potatoes
1 cup diced yams
1 cup quartered and sliced plantain
6 cups chicken stock
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Spaetzle
1/2 lb flour
1/2 cup water
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Directions:
Heat oil in Dutch oil; add onions and garlic. Cook until tender. Add okra, red and green peppers, potatoes, yams and plantain. Saute until lightly browned. Add stock and coconut milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 2 to 3 hours or until soup thickens. Season with salt and pepper.

Do you have the recipe for a coffee desert? I am sorry I do not remember the name or even what it looked like. My friend loved it and I would love to pass the recipe to her.
This dessert was on the miracle back in august of 2004.
Thanks

I don't have any coffee dessert recipes. I your friend can recall the name then maybe I can find it. I can't find it now because I don't know the name so you would have to get me the name so I could find it for you.

hi,
Don't know if the 'flourless' cake is the same as the Chocolate Melting Cake that we recently had on Carnival but it was to DIE for. Would you happen to have it in there? I don't remember seeing it when I glanced through the cookbook when i was on the ship.
Thanks for the great recipes!

Pour the mixture in the "ramekin cups"
Bake directly in the oven at 200 C degress for 15 to 20 minutes

I just wanted to add my opinion of the Chocolate Melting Cake. It was phenominal to say the least. Thank you so much to all that have posted it's recipe. I asked my waiter and he said if he had time he would get it from the chef, but he didn't. My husband will be thrilled!!!!
We just got back yesterday from a week on the Triumph touring the Eastern Caribbean. It was fabulous!!!

Thank you this is a awesome thread. I can't enlarge the index: can you tell me if there is a recipe for "Wilted Spinach and Portobello Mushrooms with Fresh Bacon Bits"? I just returned from cruising on the Conquest and I have been craving this salad, it was really good. Thank you for this thread!

The Carnival Cook Book DOES NOT have all the recipes served as they advertise. I purchased this book specifically for the Cucumber and Zuchinni soup recipes and neither are in the book.

Wow... thanks for the recipes!!! We sailed on the Conquest last July, and our favorite desserts were the molten chocolate cake, the bitter & blanc, and my personal favorite-- it was a raspberry dessert, I think a cake- but I was the only one at my table that ordered it and I can't remember exactly what it was... just that it was outstanding!!!!

Our group made such a fuss over the molten chocolate and the bitter & blanc that our waiter had them made again especially for us on the last night of the cruise. Overall, the food was incredible and we were never disappointed with our meals.

Pineapple-- if you happen to see a raspberry dessert in your cookbook, could you post the recipe? I have found the ones for the other two. I appreciate your help! This post is making me hungry and cruisesick- and we can't go again for 2 more years!
