Home-Cured Salmon with Black Pepper and Coriander

Home-Cured Salmon with Black Pepper and Coriander

When we catered the VIP suite at SalonCon in September, we tried to think of a fun and interesting way to make sure people got some protein in their diets during the day. Conferences and conventions are notorious for people taking poor care of themselves, and failing to eat real food or get enough sleep. […]

Duck Confit and Fig Crostini

Duck Confit and Fig Crostini

Figs are marvelous. Dave and I have been eating them with duck confit (as in this spectacularly tasty recipe, all rich luscious duck and bright fresh figs with mustard seeds and curry leaves to perk everything up), pickling them, and just generally reveling in their availability lately. Instead of apologizing for not updating this blog […]

Fava Beans with Seaweed Pop Rocks

Fava Beans with Seaweed Pop Rocks

These are dead simple, very tasty, and wonderfully vocal – both the pop rocks and people’s reaction to them. Shell your fava beans. Remember, favas need to be removed from the pod, and then the skin has to be removed from each bean individually. It’s a pain in the ass, but worth it once in […]

Rhubarb Soup with Nicoise Olive Cookies

Rhubarb Soup with Nicoise Olive Cookies

This was our amuse bouche for our opening night at Jack. I’m a bit obsessed with nicoise olives at the moment, because I absolutely hated all olives until I discovered these at the Park Avenue Bistro not too long ago. So now I’m using them to add depth to stews, intricacy to cookies, and inspiration […]

Roasted Rice Cakes with Onions and Red Chili Pepper Sauce

Roasted Rice Cakes with Onions and Red Chili Pepper Sauce

I love Momofuku, especially now that the Noodle Bar has moved to a larger location where Dave and I can actually bring our friends and chat with them at a table over dinner instead of just hoping to find one or two spaces at the bar. The food is amazing, and being the devoted carnivore […]

Salmon Potato Galettes

Salmon Potato Galettes

These latkes look kinda fishy to me. At least, that was was my first thought when I glanced upon the recipe in Mark Bittman’s Fish: The Complete Guide to Buying and Cooking. I was on a mission to make salmon for dinner, since we don’t eat nearly enough seafood around here, and Dave complains when […]

Dolmas (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

Dolmas (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

My family and I sailed around the Cyclades in Greece a few summers ago, and while we felt that the cuisine on the islands became tedious after a while, there were a few things we never tired of: dolmas, spanikopita, and milk pies. My dolmas are a bit of a stretch from traditional Greek or […]

Kaddo Bourani (Pumpkin with Yogurt and Meat Sauces)

Kaddo Bourani (Pumpkin with Yogurt and Meat Sauces)

Perhaps the best Afghani restaurant I have ever been to is Helmand in Cambridge, MA. Bamiyan in NYC has a special place in my heart, because we discovered it when Dave was trying to keep me fed while I was taking the bar exam, but Helmand won me over with their Kaddo Bourani. The way […]

Sweet Roasted Káposzta Töltött Paprika (Cabbage-Stuffed Peppers)

Sweet Roasted Káposzta Töltött Paprika (Cabbage-Stuffed Peppers)

I was so excited when I saw cabbage-stuffed peppers on a menu in Hungary. How wonderful, I thought. But when I ordered them, they turned out to be pickled. I’m sure that is delightful to some of you, but personally, I do not like pickled anything. (Oh, all right, Japanese pickled ginger. And mango slices […]

Duck-Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

Duck-Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

These are made in much the same manner as the last stuffed zucchini blossoms I posted about, except that they are filled with spicy duck breast instead of the sweet cheese filling I used before. I am so excited that this time we found blossoms with baby zucchini attached! I think someday I will have […]

Roasted Red Pepper Chipotle Egg Rolls with Tzatziki Dipping Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper Chipotle Egg Rolls with Tzatziki Dipping Sauce

This is my contribution for The Spice is Right IV: It’s Too Darned Hot!, though, in truth, I am probably the only resident of New York City who is not completely sick of the heat by now. I am cold-blooded and reptilian, and nothing makes me happier than soaking in the warmth. I am trying […]
