Black Radish Salad with Bacon

I had a couple of leftover bierocks from a shoot today (upcoming in @pomomagazine — stay tuned!), so tonight’s dinner was merely a matter of tossing together a nice little Rettichsalat mit Speck. This is just a bowl of matchstick-cut black radishes with @nueskes bacon, […]

Kamut-Black Radish-Radicchio Salad with Pistachios

Revisited this winter salad for dinner, padding out the toasty kamut with a little more asparagus, black radish and radicchio (added a little more pistachio and a dash of red wine vinegar), and served with a simple seared chicken breast seasoned with za’atar and orange. […]

Sous Vide Venison and Warm Kamut Salad

This venison is ridiculously good, but the salad? Five stars, would visit again. Don’t look now, but Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Practice the gentle art of seduction by staying in to cook for that special someone (or #treatyoself) with this sexy plate: […]

Romanesco-White Cheddar Chowder

Romanesco: are you a broccoli? A cauliflower? You’re a biracial superfood and I love you. This is romanesco-white cheddar chowder with homemade guanciale, topped with chives and parsley from the garden and a dribble of olive oil from @houseofspain_evoo 🥦 🧀 🍖 🍲#soupweather #winterfood #soup […]

Lazy Choucroute Garnis

Made easy/lazy choucroute garnis tonight with *gasp* store-bought sauerkraut that I doctored up with diced @nueskes ham, caraway seeds, juniper berries, and a spoonful of my homemade dill pickle mustard (protip: purée the garlicky, seedy dregs of your jars of pickles instead of dumping them). […]

Celery on Marketplace

I had a wonderful opportunity to talk to Molly Wood on Marketplace about that wacky Victorian celery craze! The interview is after the photo (I’m at around 3:45). Had a super fun chat with @mollywoodpro on Marketplace (yes, THAT Marketplace!!) about that kooky Victorian celery […]

Fire and Mushrooms

I wrote about fire ecology and mushroom-hunting for Fish & Game Quarterly. I’ve been kind of worried that the piece comes off a bit glib, since the rains have not yet begun in California and real danger yet looms, but my intent was for encouragement […]

Simple is Best

@maryschicken seasoned simply with @nicky.usa game salt and roasted with all the cold-weather vegetables: parsnips, cabbage, shallots, potatoes, and the last half of the bitterroot buttercup squash, all roasted sticky-brown in the chicken drippings. Green olives and lemons in the pan, too. Served it with […]

Autumn Ramen

Made some really delicious vegetarianish autumn ramen with @umiorganic noodles and tempura (kabocha-like bitterroot buttercup squash, purple sweet potato, shiitake, pumpkin blossom, onion, and green bean in simple rice flour/seltzer batter). Broth is smoky-sweet and concentrated; rich chicken stock seasoned with tentsuyu (use mushroom broth […]
