It looks like a Burger with Fries. But you can eat this one on Meatless Monday.  It’s the Beyond Burger.

It looks like a Burger with Fries. But you can eat this one on Meatless Monday. It’s the Beyond Burger.

We ate our first Beyond Burgers this month. Here’s our review: When you live near an all-American town like Sag Harbor, New York, you know you’re going to find a great burger.  I love the burgers at Dockside, a local institution that’s an improbable tenant […]

Pan con Tomate or, as we say in Catalonia, Pa Amb Tomàquet

Pan con Tomate or, as we say in Catalonia, Pa Amb Tomàquet

After our ten-day trip through Portugal in July, it seemed a shame to be just an hour and a half by air from Barcelona and not go there—especially since Andrew had only been to Spain twice. We’d spent a magical day in Salamanca as part […]

A visit to the C.I.A., A recipe for a True Tuscan Bread Salad and one for a Lower Gluten Salad made with Wheatberries!!

A visit to the C.I.A., A recipe for a True Tuscan Bread Salad and one for a Lower Gluten Salad made with Wheatberries!!

The thrill of being invited to participate in a three-day adventure at the Culinary Institute of America, Napa Valley, California branch is about as good as it gets. Especially if you’re a self-taught home cook.  And the experience exceeded every imaginable expectation I had. How […]

Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata

Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata

Asparagus season is coming and here’s a great way to celebrate its arrival. While a frittata sounds rather fancy, it’s a very easy dish to make. Far simpler than flipping an omelette, it’s wildly versatile too.  For this version, I added shallots and cremini mushrooms […]

Nate Appleman’s Lentil and Egg Stew

Meatless Mondays have been missing from our house. It was not intentional but I had trouble finding recipes that appealed to the palate and to the eyes.  But on one of the daily e-mailings from Healthy-ish, Bon Appetit’s latest venture, I spied this recipe. It […]

The Surprising Story of Fried Green Tomatoes and Martha Stewart’s Recipe for Non-Fried Tomatoes

The season is upon us in the East.  The Fried Green Tomatoes are here.  They’re one of the foods I eagerly look for in the market.  And last weekend at the Farm Stand I found them.  Firm, unripened and very green.  Steady readers of this […]

Dinner Party Dishes: Vegetable Biryani

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 […]

Orecchiette with Buttermilk, Peas and Pistachios from Bon Appetit

Orecchiette with Buttermilk, Peas and Pistachios from Bon Appetit

When it comes to Buttermilk, I can come up with three recipes that require it: Waffles, Fried Chicken and Biscuits.  Buttermilk comes in quarts. The only recipe of the three that requires that much Buttermilk is perhaps the chicken marinade which is used to tenderize […]

Ploughman’s Cheddar and Onion Marmalade Tart

Ploughman’s Cheddar and Onion Marmalade Tart

A couple of weeks ago, I returned from “A Cheddar Odyssey”, an offering from Cheese Journeys, who, as their name implies, runs tours that combine Culture, Exploration and Cheese. Lots and lots of cheese.   It’s one of those trips that beguiles you long after you’ve […]
