Found in a Specialty Foods Store in Wayne County: Ribald Marzipan

Thursday, October 27, 2011

WNYC

At Roman's Famous Meats and Seafood, an Eastern and Northern European specialty store in Honesdale, Penn., I expected to find spaetzle, flatbreads, herring and stollen.  

I didn't expect to find a little man made of marzipan, excreting a silvery paper coin.

Purple Pies and Other Adventures in Baking Sweet Potatoes

Friday, October 21, 2011

When Farmer Lee Jones comes to visit Last Chance Foods, he always brings half his farm's yield with him. As our topic this week was sweet potatoes, I wonder if he had to pay a heavy bag fee at the airport.

A Butcher Butchered My Plan for Lamb

Thursday, October 13, 2011

WNYC

I wanted to make lamb this weekend, and I did. I made a leg of lamb, which would have turned out quite lovely if I hadn't overcooked it.

Overcooking would NOT have been a problem with my original lamb plan: a tagine, or Moroccan lamb stew, recipe courtesy of the now-defunct and much-missed Gourmet Magazine. But I had to change that plan after the butcher talked me out of the cut of meat I wanted.

Kale: Just as Good Raw as Cooked

Monday, October 03, 2011

WNYC

I've been reluctant to eat kale raw.  The curly versions in the supermarket seem too tough and dominated by thick stems and veins to forego steaming or boiling. But then I tried New York Times food writer Melissa Clark's recipe for raw kale salad, using lacinato kale, and I'm hooked.

Does Size Matter?

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

WNYC

Usually, when there's pie to be had -- especially peanut butter pie -- you want to have a big, fat slab of it, with a big ol' dollop of whipped cream or ice cream. More is the rule. But not when you're serving a peanut butter pie at a party, with guests standing up who don't have silverware. What to do?

Birthday Goodies Without Flour and White Sugar?

Friday, August 19, 2011

People, I'm 48 today. Conventional wisdom says I need to celebrate with cake.

This year, I'm doing conventional wisdom one better by eating a cake -- or, in this case, cupcakes -- that are better for me than ones made with white flour and refined sugars.

The Raw and The Cooked

No, I'm not going to be talking about myth, and Claude Levi-Strauss' epic study on mythmaking, The Raw and the Cooked: Mythologiques, Volume 1.  No way. I'm interested in whether eating raw nuts is significantly better for me than eating roasted ones. Or is THIS a myth?
