In the pantheon of amazingly quick and easy things to cook, there is the salmon filet. This lovely rosy fish cooks in all of 6 minutes depending on how pink you like it. And 6 ounces is a gracious serving. We can have the discussion […]
As promised, I am going to try to make everything posted in December easy ways to get dinner on the table with maximum flavor impact. Today’s dinner incorporated a Premio sausage combination I’d not seen before. Premio packages both Sweet and Hot Sausages in one. […]
Not too long ago, Andrew had a birthday. The minute I’d seen it advertised, I’d ordered Dorie Greenspan’s latest book “Everyday Dorie”(A Rux Martin Book Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2018) as a gift. It turned out the book took 244 pages before landing at “Desserts”. So […]

Prosciutto-wrapped Chicken Breasts stuffed with Black Truffle Goat Cheese, with Shiitake Mushrooms in a Marsala Sauce. Whew!
No American producer of Goat Cheese is more responsible for its ever- increasing popularity than California’s Laura Chenel’s.

I have to admit being completely charmed by my visit to Scandinavia. In the interests of full disclosure, I went to Denmark and Norway side-stepping Sweden, Finland and far distant Iceland on my 7 day Viking Homeland itinerary. But I felt completely immersed in Scandinavia […]
If you follow me on Instagram (@montemathews) you know that I have been in Scandinavia all last week. I boarded Viking Star in Germany and sailed to Denmark and Norway. As soon as I can cook them, I’ll be sharing some wonderful discoveries on my […]
After I published this post, I shared it on Jonell Galloway’s Facebook page “Culinary Travel by Jonell Galloway, The Rambling Epicure”. One of Jonell’s readers got involved when I mentioned the multiple spellings of “biryani” and Jonell asked whether it was the English spelling of […]
I won’t go into the dreary details of two nights spent in Frankfurt Airport where a freak storm stranded over 7000 passengers except to say that if a contest were held First Prize would be one night in Frankfurt Airport and Second Prize would be […]
I realize I am a bit late to this party. For a while I thought Martha Stewart had given up cooking any other way than by using a sheet pan. She created 17 sheet pan suppers for Pork alone. She made everything from Pizza to […]
I spend an inordinate amount of time seeking recipes for that workhorse of the weeknight meal, the boneless, skinless chicken breast. But let’s face it, we could all overdose on chicken breasts. In a writing class I took before launching Chewing The Fat, one of […]
When I lived in Rome, Saltimbocca was an introduction to the cuisine of the city itself. “Saltimbocca alla Romana” featured veal, topped with Prosciutto and Sage in a Marsala and butter sauce. It was very good and, because of its ingredients, more expensive than most […]
