Persian Yogurt Soup
This soup is a test of patience and restraint. If you're easily distracted, skip it. If you can mind a pot, stirring, singularly-focused, for a half hour, perhaps longer, you'll be rewarded with a beautiful, herbed, Persian yogurt soup, Ashe Mast. This is a vegetarian version - chickpeas, lentils,
A Good Winter Salad
This is the salad I made on Thursday. My intent was to assemble a big, green salad. It would be the sea of green on the Thanksgiving table. There was no real plan aside from that. No real intent to feature it here. It should be said, I'm terrible about photographing or documenting recipes if I'm ...
Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes
Hi friends, a number of you have mailed me over the past week asking about vegetarian thanksgiving recipe ideas, so I thought it might be high time to update this page. There are also recipes I've come across on other sites that looked like they'd be exciting to try, so I added a number of those ...
Pomelo Green Beans
This time last month I was setting off on a journey that started with me flying through Charles de Gaulle airport to Marrakech where we spent the better part of the week in the historic medina. There was a train ride from there to Fez, where we stayed in the restored residence of a 17th century ...
Favorites List (11.13.13)
After three weeks away, I'm home. Bags are unpacked, laundry clean, refrigerator stocked! It feels nice to be back. We started in Marrakech, then made our way by train to Fes, and eventually hopped a flight to France where we traded apartments for a stretch with Clotilde . We've done the swap once
Poached Eggs in White Wine
I find myself poaching eggs two or three times a week. And, I know it seems obvious, but I sometimes need a nudge to poach them in something other than water. All sorts of broths and infusions are fair game, it's funny that I don't branch out more often. These, for example, were eggs poached in ...
Delicata Squash Recipes
Delicata is the lazy cooks winter squash. Its the sole squash I'm able to square off with in breezy fashion. Unlike working with other squash, I'm typically able to maintain composure throughout its preparation. If you've ever cursed a Hokkaido, or permanently lodged a knife in a hubbard, you know
Avocado Spring Rolls
Hi from Morocco, friends. I'm posting this recipe from Marrakech, where I've spent the past five days. And lest you think it's too glamorous, I've been crapped on by finches (twice!) while typing this. Also, in case that wasn't odd enough, there is a turtle hanging out beneath my chair, and a bird
I have a good number of wood cutting boards, wood-handled knives, and wooden spoons in my kitchen, as I'm sure most of you do. And one of the things that bothers me about caring for them is that nearly all the products related to this task are mineral oil based. For example, spoon butter. It's ...
Roasted Squash, Chile, and Mozzarella Salad
This gem, The Kinfolk Table , arrived on my doorstep on Friday. I carried it straight up the stairs, down the long hallway, and into the kitchen where we started cooking from it on the spot. Sam Wylde's Roasted Squash Salad was first, along with Nathan & Katie's Citrus Lentil Salad. This is a 340+
