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…

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…

Fall Soups: Twin Cities Live

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 8, 2012 at 8:39pm

I had a blast chatting fall soups on Twin Cities Live this week! I specifically talked about Coconut Curry Sweet Corn Soup, but also brought along Pozole (pork braised with chiles and hominy) and a Chicken Vegetable Soup that’s pretty much the perfect post-Thanksgiving soup (obviously made with turkey not chicken – please forgive me…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 28, 2012 at 10:48am

Swimming in tomatoes yet? Even if not, make this gorgeous gazpacho anyhow – it’s one of my very favorite versions of everyone’s favorite summer treat. Recipe for Gazpacho at Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures/Food & Wine Magazine.

Fermented Cucumber Pickles (Paleo, AIP) and Pickling the Market

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 31, 2012 at 2:06pm

If you’re a fan of deli-style pickles, then you’re a fan of salt-brine fermented pickles. I am too, I am too! In fact, I’ll never forget the first time I had fat slices of salty fermented pickles at Upstairs Downstairs Deli in Madison, Wisconsin – bright green and uber-garlicky, I couldn’t stop eating them. (What…

Chimichurri: Part II

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 3, 2012 at 7:40pm

I posted a chimichurri recipe here once before, back in February of 2011, upon returning from a trip to Costa Rica. I fell into a deep craving while on that trip, eating the local twist on this classic Argentian sauce on everything that I touched. While the recipe that I posted is bright and snappy,…

Rhubarb Mostarda, Little Foot Farm: Outstanding in the Field 2012 Prep, Part I

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 12, 2012 at 10:03am

Let’s call it summer and make plans to eat outside, preferably as often as possible. Dinner al fresco pretty much anywhere feels special, but dinner on a farm is particularly divine for us city dwellers, away from cubicles and concrete, with time to learn about, discuss, and savor food prepared at its source. In fact,…

Basil Blossom Sangria (Make-and-Sip!)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 23, 2012 at 5:01pm

I had The Best meeting last week, outside in the warm sun, sipping a gorgeous sangria made by my friend Tracy Morgan of Kitchen in the Market. We were chatting all sorts of very serious things – logos, web design, cooking classes, and shoes – with a rather long discussion regarding the merits of a…

Sopes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2012 at 10:33am

It’s a little bit ridiculous that I haven’t posted about sopes before – I make and devour them several times a week. In fact, I’m a maniacal cornmeal cake fan in general. Chef Thomas Boemer had an insane version on Corner Table’s menu a couple of weeks ago, with a bit of lard kneaded in,…

Celery Root Latkes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 18, 2012 at 7:15am

Given that everything is better fried – everything – it will come as no surpirse that root vegetables make utterly dreamy latkes. I like celery root in particular for its slightly sweet flavor. These latkes are delicious as is, fresh out of the fat with a dab of sour cream, but my favorite way to…
