Maine Lobster Roll

The baseline roll is in Maine, a state where putting celery in a lobster roll is a crime punishable by law. I have been stopped at the border of Maine and had my celery confiscated by customs. The lobster is very lightly dressed with mayo and served cold on a griddled buttered roll — split top, New England style, of course! This style of lobster roll is often seen on Cape Cod and the Islands, or pretty much any major fishing town in New England.

Watch How Easy It Is to Make Chicken Curry at Home

Growing up, like most Indian Americans, I was spoiled by my mother’s Indian cooking. I didn’t quite appreciate the variety and complexity (not to mention health benefits) of the dishes she made until I went to college, where the salad and sandwich bars and strange pasta concoctions made me homesick for something colorful and spicy. I soon joined a food co-op and was required, along with all other members, to cook once a week for 30 people.

Celebrate the Sunshine With This Seasonal Dessert

Rhubarb is one of the great enigmas of the food world. Is it a fruit? No. Is it a vegetable? Technically, yes, but a vegetable that is often treated like a fruit, or at least paired with them. You've probably seen rhubarb and strawberries together, but rhubarb is also delicious with raspberries. The sweet floral notes of the raspberries compliment the tart earthiness of the rhubarb.

It’s not your imagination. Rosé wines are everywhere. Peruse the wine list of your favorite restaurant or drop by any wine shop, and you can’t miss the parade of pinks. This season, the pros are recommending bottles that pair not only with fish and fowl, but with meatier fare hot off the grill.

These days, most rosé is a far cry from your grandmother’s sweet blush wine. Sporting hues that range from the palest pink to coppery salmon, these pours are dry, moderate in alcohol, and offer snappy acidity that makes them splendid with food.
