Great British Game Pie

THAR SHE BLOWS! Like a precocious baby, my game pie is standing on its own. I’m still going to wait until tomorrow to slice it open and reveal the cross section, but ain’t she a beaut? #gamepie #meatconcierge #britishfood #proudmama πŸ‡ πŸ– 🦌 πŸ•Š πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§#food52 […]

Stuffed Peppers

  Stuffed peppers with Nicky Farms ground beef, jasmine rice, home-canned tomatoes and Balkan spices, because even though it’s been a warm and easy glide into fall, I’m kind of ready to dive into dinners from the oven. #dinnertonight #meatconcierge #peppers ? ? ? ? […]

Pelmeni with Chanterelles and Salicornia

Store-bought pelmeni from the Russian market make a fast phone-in dinner, but serving them en brodo with wild things makes it special. Beef pelmeni in a reduction of beef/rabbit/duck stock (deglazed the pan first with my homemade Doug-fir eau de vie), with Misty Mountain chanterelles […]

Water Buffalo Barbari Bread

Fresh zucchini blossoms and garlic flowers look pretty and belie this dish’s utter simplicity. Locally raised Nicky Farms water buffalo tastes to me like a slightly more iron-rich bison, making it a natural fit for bold Middle Eastern spices. Here I’ve browned it in a […]

Wild Boar Mapo Tofu

You can make this quickly by using store-bought Sichuan chile oil, but it’s also nice to mace yourself toasting Sichuan peppercorns and facing heaven chiles in your wok to make mala oil from scratch. Nicky Farms ground wild boar mapo tofu, because sometimes you need […]

Shepherd’s Pie

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 […]

Staycation

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 […]

Buffalo Ribeye Flatbreads

Grilled Nicky Farms bison ribeye with grilled flatbread; a gremolata of carrot tops, mint, and lovage flowers (all from the garden), lemon juice and garlic; quick-pickled ramps and green strawberries; opal basil flowers, parsley flowers, and salad burnet from the garden; purple cauliflower and carrot […]

Loco Moco

Had a leftover Nicky Farms venison patty and some leftover rice, so I made loco moco of course! Topped with ramen broth gravy (added the veggie pack from some @nongshimusa Shin Ramyun for kick), backyard egg, homemade tamago-nori furikake, served with a little side salad […]

Taco Rice

Okinawan taco rice for #tacotuesday! Mine has some spicy queso on it, but plain old cheddar for the milder tummies in my house. #dinnertonight #yoshoku #wwii #japanesefood #instafood #tacos #rice #queso #weeknightdinner #okinawa #food52 #bareaders #f52grams #hashtagstakemeaway A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) […]
