Momofuku Ginger Scallion Sauce

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 30, 2012 at 10:40am

One of my favorite New York food treats is to inhale pork in many forms at Momofuku Ssam Bar. The Bo Ssam pork shoulder is particularly delightful, served whole and fall-apart-glistening for the table to share. Everyone grabs tongs and snaps at the meat like a pack of well-dressed wolves, filling lettuce leaves with slabs…

Frico (Parmesan Crisp) with Zucchini

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 23, 2012 at 1:03pm

Do you invite people to your home for dinner or do you break into a January-in-Minnesota sweat at the thought? I love eating in restaurants, but the nights spent with friends and family in our home, or in theirs, are the best of all. When I was a newlywed, I was so excited to be…

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 21, 2012 at 4:10pm

While the rest of my garden is toast, the parsley lives on, just begging me to make tabbouleh salad. Except tabbouleh is made with bulgur, which is wheat, which I can’t eat. Damn it! Enter quinoa, the grain that is conveniently a gluten-free seed, hey. I’m not as obsessed with quinoa as some, but in…

Doug Flicker’s Collard Greens from Come In, We’re Closed

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 16, 2012 at 12:24pm

I just returned last night from a weekend of eating my way through New York. While we had a killer time eating very special things, I thought on several occasions…I eat better than this in Minneapolis. What?! But yes! I’ve been thinking this on the last few trips I’ve taken, especially pork dishes, which I…

Outstanding in the Field 2012 at Little Foot Farm. And Coffee Custards with Honey & Cinnamon!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 10, 2012 at 7:46am

Remember August? It sure was pretty… August 9, in fact, was the Outstanding in the Field farm dinner at Little Foot Farm in Afton, Minnesota. Little Foot raises heritage breed hogs so it’s no surprise that this dinner was a celebration of pork, pork, and more pork. Thanks to chef Mike Phillips of Three Sons…

Pork Burgers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 9, 2012 at 10:58am

Burger maniacs (including myself), I have a proposition for you (us)…pork burgers! Why do we all not eat pork burgers? I’m not suggesting that beef burgers are anything but delectable, but I have been pondering – given the borderline gastronomic insanity over bacon, pork belly, and charcuterie – why the heck isn’t a fabulously juicy,…
