Culinary

Culinary art is the art of preparing and cooking foods.

Recipes

  1. Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

    In the '70s, with the advent of New American cooking, sun-dried tomato pesto became something of a cliche-and was summarily forgotten on the culinary landscape. It's well worth a revival, especially when you cut down the fat and add a little vinegar for a nice spike.

  2. Wild Rice Salad with Cranberries and Mint

    Elliott Prag, a cooking instructor at New York's Natural Gourmet Institute, offers a culinary history lesson with this recipe. It calls for wild rice, dried cranberries, and maple syrup--all of them indigenous to North America.

  3. Turkey Piccata

    This recipe updates a culinary classic by replacing traditional veal with tender, low-fat turkey breast tenderloin. It's a quick dinner that has just 148 calories per serving.

  3. Grow Your Own Culinary Herb Garden – Yard to Table

    Tue, 2 Jun 2015

    I mentioned several times during this ‘how to plant your own culinary herb garden’ video that I’d give a lot more specific information on the blog, but now that I’m here, I realize there’s not much more to tell you. Herbs are very easy to grow, and besides basil, which doesn't like to dry out, they only require occasional watering. Any well-drained soil will work, but your best bet is to grab a bag of ready-to-use planting mix. Feel free to double check with the person at the nursery, but it’s basically potting soil with benefits. And, I did say nursery. Drive the extra mile, and talk to people that just sell plants. I consider these herbs must-haves, but there are many more varieties you can try. I’ve done things like tarragon and cilantro in the past, and while they are a little more temperamental, they can be successfully cultivated. Nothing beats being able to go out into the garden, and just take a pinch of this and a pinch of that. When you consider the cost of one of these plants is just a little more than for a single bunch at the market, why not have a few pots around, even if they’re on the windowsill? I hope you plant your garden soon. Enjoy! NOTE: I’m not a gardening expert, so asking me specific question about soil types and weather issues will result in many a guess. My advice would be to use this video as an inspiration, and then check out some local gardening websites.
