• A legend of Italian food could live on at your local grocer

    Updated: Mon, Apr 13, 2015

  • A trick for keeping spring lamb burgers from tasting gamey

    Updated: Mon, Apr 13, 2015

    No meat says spring quite like lamb. When I lived in France, the seasonality of meats such as lamb was celebrated. Rarely have I tasted lamb so mild and sweet as the first cuts of spring lamb from the South of France. While healthier cooks tend to limit red meat, happily there is a...

    Updated: Fri, Apr 10, 2015

    Pancakes, waffles and French toast? They're fine, but they're only the start. Because if you're limiting maple syrup to the breakfast table, you're missing out on all sorts of excuses to add its gentle, yet distinct flavor to all manner of foods, from roasted vegetables and chicken...

  • Mastering the simple vinaigrette to deliver maximum flavor

    Updated: Thu, Apr 9, 2015

    Most people reach for prepared salad dressings because on busy weeknights they just can't handle the thought of whipping up yet something else. Because after cooking a main course and some sides and tossing together a salad, who has the time and energy to make a dressing? I get it....

    Updated: Wed, Apr 8, 2015

    Too often, a salad is served out of obligation. We feel it is something we have to do to make the meal complete, but really don't want to. And too often that's why the salads we serve aren't all that great. We don't really care about them. Thing is, I love a well-made salad, and for...

    Updated: Wed, Apr 8, 2015

    There is something disgustingly delicious about sweet-and-sour chicken, that deep-fried, sugar-slathered staple of Asian takeout. That cloying sauce, that crispy-fried breading, those sweet morsels of warm pineapple. No matter how bad I know it is for me - and how badly executed the...
