You don’t need fancy sushi knives and bamboo mats to tackle raw fish in your kitchen. Fresh tuna, rice and a simple dressing make a fast and fresh meal.
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.
We're bringing you another fantastic feature from our friends over at America's Test Kitchen. With grilling season upon us, it's time to get serious about cooking over open fire. They've shared the recipe for Perfect Grilled Hamburgers from their latest tome, Master of the Grill, so you can enjoy perfection this weekend — and all summer long.
It’s farmers’ market season! If you’re like me, you just can’t resist all that beautiful local produce. And then you bring home way more than you can reasonably consume before it goes bad. Thankfully, this new book from the local pros at America’s Test Kitchen has the answer to the question, "What do I do with all of this when I get it home?"
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.
We found an Oregon pink to pair with everything from sliders to sausages.
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.
Let’s start with a big shout out and thank you to all the mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, mother-in-laws, and aunts out there who love, nurture, listen, and give of themselves all year long. Many do this through food, and since this is a Mother’s Day brunch recipe, I’m sharing a twist on my own mother’s favorite breakfast treat — French toast.
The controversial Kentucky Derby Pie®, with its trademarked name, has been closely associated with the prestigious horse race since the 1950s. It’s also a great treat to bring to any Kentucky Derby party. However, the recipe for an actual KDP is closely guarded by its originators (and copious law suits) so you don’t see the real thing up North very often.
Here at Craving Boston, we recently explored the Jewish deli scene in the city. Now I'm here to help you recreate that experience at home. Last week, I dove headfirst into the week-long project of making a Reuben sandwich fully from scratch. I corned the beef in my refrigerator, fermented the sauerkraut in my bedroom (hello ladies, I'm single!), made the Thousand Island dressing, and even baked the marbled rye! It was quite the endeavor, but when I finally shared the sandwiches with my friends, it was all worth it.
