AN AUTUMNAL FEAST for dinner: pumpkin risotto (homegrown New England sugar pumpkin) cooked in smoked guinea hen stock with Misty Mountain lobster mushrooms and chanterelles (friends of @nicky.usa, will be at Wild About Game!), bacon, toasted pepitas and fried sage from the garden. Second shot: […]
I have a cold! 🤧🤒😫 so I made a big pot of miến gà with more of that wonderful Grimaud Farms guinea fowl (one of the @nicky.usa #wildaboutgame proteins!). It's just one more way to enjoy chicken noodle soup (glass noodles, lots of garlic, ginger, […]

This decadent stuff is super easy to make. Just brown like a half a pound of bacon in a pan, then pour off most of the grease. Return the dirty, greasy pan to medium-low heat, and slowly cook a half a small chopped onion, a […]
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 […]
