Early last week my dear friend, Bates, and her family travelled from the eastern shores of Massachusetts to spend a few days with us. They brought Island Creek Oysters (so good), Farfar’s sweet cream (the best), a bottle of Cocchi Americano (for eventides… delicious), and an arsenal of recipes for us to make together. Topping […]

Discovering a vegetable you thought could only be eaten cooked can in fact be eaten raw is always a revelation. Learning, for instance, I could shred raw beets in my food processor and toss them in a salad was as mind-blowing as discovering I could thinly slice Swiss chard and give it the kale salad […]

Store-bought pita leaves much to be desired. Upon surveying a few friends on the subject of pita, the word that came up repeatedly was “cardboard.” This descriptor, I think, is mostly fair. Pita hasn’t caught up to naan and tortillas, which even at semi-mass produced levels* can taste quite good. But how nice for us? […]

Tzatziki is a Greek yogurt- and cucumber-based condiment, typically seasoned with herbs such as mint and dill, garlic, and lemon. I grew up eating it with this chicken souvlaki, but I find it to be a nice match for both meat and vegetarian dishes alike: Roasted Eggplant Salad (a favorite summer meal!) Mushroom and Sweet […]

Schug (pronounced skoog, sometimes spelled zhug) is a spiced green sauce originating from Yemen but used throughout the Middle East. It’s a blend of herbs, chilies, and toasted spices. I first wrote about it several years ago after discovering it in Joshua McFadden’s Six Seasons, which inspired me to drizzle it over anything from roasted […]

If you love falafel but are deterred by the idea of deep-frying at home, these falafel burgers are for you. They’re loaded with vegetables, herbs, and spices, making them not only delicious but healthy, too.

Say hello to my new favorite dish: blistered shishitos with avocado crema. This recipe comes from Susan Spungen’s new cookbook, Open Kitchen, which I wrote about last month. Just like the previous recipe I shared from the book, “Grilled” Romaine Ceasar Salad, this one is equally simple, delicious, and stunning. It’s the kind of dish […]

Just before Christmas, I added a “peasant bread kit” to the shop. It included nearly all of my favorite bread baking tools: a digital scale, a GIR spatula, and a Dot and Army cloth bowl cover. But it left out maybe my favorite bread baking tool, as far as baking peasant bread is concerned: two […]
