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 […]

Peking Game Hens

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 […]

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 […]

Pistachio-Rose Cake from the City of Roses

Teacake du jour: baklava-inspired! Equal parts hazelnut meal and AP flour, pistachios, extra butter and egg for richness, sweetened with @portlandsyrups Rose Cordial and @oldbluerawhoney bigleaf maple honey, studded with pistachios. When it came out of the oven I soaked it in @thomasandsonsdistillery White Rose […]

Pork Brisket is a Thing

A beautiful @tailsandtrotters pork brisket (it's a thing!) resting after smoking and slow-roasting. I'll slice it up and serve it with orzo pilaf (smoked zucchini, peppers, herbs from the garden, smoked Russian cheese, pine nuts). #dinnertonight #meatconcierge 🍖 🍖 🍖 🍖 🍖 #pork #meat #bbq […]

Tea Loaf of the Week

Tea loaf of the week! Lemon-poppyseed buttermilk cake with lemon peel that I candied for holiday baking. I’ll serve it with rhubarb-carrot marmalade at my writers’ group this evening. #ambaking #whenlifegivesyoulemons #cake A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) on May 25, 2017 at […]

Chocolate Chip-Marmalade Bread

Baked a loaf of my favorite chocolate chip-marmalade bread for this rainy spring day.

Dutch baby Monte Cristo

Who says a Dutch baby must be a sweet vehicle for jam and syrup? Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with that, it’s just a little predictable. With a base so eggy, it may as well be an omelet. Once it’s deflated like some kind […]

Gooey Orange Sticky Buns

Today is New Year’s Eve, and instead of planning a healthy regime change in 2012 I am doing the opposite. I say: more bread. More dessert. More DIY sticky-icky. I’m bringing butter and eggs and gluten back. I’m bringing the old bitch back. And if […]

Obi non and news

I always fiddle with ingredients and dishes, but rarely (I hope) to the point that they are unrecognizable by their forebears. This breakfast is one of those rare failures at respectful fusion: a tender Uzbek obi non; an ancient flatbread baked in a clay¬†tandir — […]
