As summer’s twilight looms, we’re testing the strength of our shopping bags by loading them up with ingredients for these tasty late-season recipes. This menu may not call for a piping hot grill, but it will still help you cope with the fact that another summer has come and gone. Chilled Carrot Soup With Clotted Cream, Pistachios, and Mint This elegant dish is souped up (sorry, we can’t resist) with curry, sweet pistachios, and an unexpected dollop of clotted cream, making it one of the more cosmopolitan carrot purées we’ve seen. Bay Scallop Ceviche with Watermelon and Black Sesame Festive and flavorful, this no-cook dish will help you keep cool during the final heat wave. Mini Lobster Rolls If you can’t squeeze in one last trip to the beach, these pint-sized lobster rolls from Marc Murphy will transport you to a seaside seafood shack. (Try saying that five times fast.) Sweet Corn Budino with Blueberries and Cornmeal Shortbread Budino may be may be the Italian word for pudding, but the tame translation undersells this sumptuous dessert from JBF Award winner Karen DeMasco.
