The boy wanted mac + chee for lunch, so I obliged: this time with the addition of kristianskaya sausage (v close to kielbasa), broccoli, and various nubbins of Swedish cheese from @ikeausa. It's like Milwaukee in a bowl, this. #macandcheese #lunch 🧀 🍲 🧀 🍲 […]
It was rainy and gray for a minute today so I made shepherd's pie, rich and savory af, with locally raised Anderson Ranches lamb, and the mashed potato topping is Irish champ style with melted scallions, parsley, and lots of good white cheddar. #dinnertonight #meatconcierge […]
Summer ramen made with @nueskes impeccable cherry wood-smoked bacon; @umiorganic noodles (bouncy af); smoked pork dashi; peas, roasted tomatoes, corn, beans, squash blossoms, and scallions from the garden; plus a soy-marinated backyard egg. #dinnertonight #ramen #meatconcierge 🍜 🥓 🍜 🥓 🍜 🥓 #bacon #noodles #vegetables #growyourown #japanesefood #summer #instayum #instafood #food52 #foodstagram #huffposttaste #umami #eatlocal #upperleftusa #pdx
Was craving Hawaiian food (we were there this time last year) so I made tiny smorgasbord (clockwise from bottom-left): iceberg salad with carrot-ginger dressing like they have at Benihana &c; saimin salad with backyard egg, kamaboko, grilled spam, green onion, and cucumber (dashi, soy, sesame […]
Yes, this is a photo of taco fixings, but there’s one little bowl in the bottom-center that stole the show for me. I’ve been obsessed with sikil pak lately, though I first found out about it at Güero, a really excellent torta (not taco) joint […]
Half of the legumes I’m growing this year are purple or speckled with pretty red splotches. The heat always turns them back to green, though.
Fabaceous lovelies from the garden: Royal Burgundy beans, snow peas, shelled purple-podded peas, and young cranberry beans (slivered, shells and all), quickly sautéed in canola oil and seasoned with kosher salt and fish pepper flake. #eatyourveggies #peas #beans #gardenlove #legumes #fabaceae #whenbotanistscook
I was craving a teriyaki Trader Vic's-style thing so I grilled up a Nicky Farms wild boar patty, yakionigiri (grilled rice balls), fresh pineapple and bell peppers. The wild boar is really nice — it's leaner and more flavorful than farm pork. It goes well […]
Peking-style @maryschicken game hens, stuffed with garlic and lacquered with maltose, homemade five spice, and soy, then smoked over mesquite, green bamboo, and branches from my peach tree. The little birdies are available at @newseasonsmarket. SO TINY AND TENDER! I served these baby beauts with […]
Greengages are an old plum that came to England from France, where they were called Reine Claude. In Germany, where they are much relished, they’re called Reneklode. “[W]hen quality alone is considered,” wrote nineteenth-century horticulturist Charles Mason Hovey, “the Green Gage must carry off the palm for excellence.”
And here they are!
Made a few little jars of sunshine: greengage plum + elderflower compote, and some pepper jelly made from the seeds and skins of @losroast Hatch chiles, which I steeped in apple cider vinegar all year long (strained, boiled with sugar and pectin, stirred in a little chile flake, et voila). #makestuff #amjamming #putuporshutup 🌶 🍈 🌶 🍈 🌶 🍈 #preservation #huffposttaste #foodstagram #instafood #instayum #f52grams #canning #homeeconomics #wastenotwantnot #smallbatch
