Marinated Flank Steak Ssäm

March 5, 2010

Like everyone else, we’ve recently been enamored of David Chang’s Momofuku cookbook. It’s not that the book is ridiculously original, or incredibly imaginative. But for someone who has cooked almost no Korean food, the book has provided an opportunity to experiment with another kind of cooking (Kimchi, and Usukuchi haven’t exactly been regulars on the […]

Jerusalem Artichoke (Sunchoke) Pickles

March 2, 2010

Jerusalem artichokes are wonderful, knobby, difficult to clean tubers that are easy to find in the northwest this time of year at farmers markets.

Salsiccia all’Uva (Sausage with Grapes)

January 30, 2010

In the Zuni Cafe Cookbook, there is a recipe for quail and sausage braised with grapes. It is Judy Rodgers’ take on a Umbrian dish called Salsiccia all’Uva.

Sauteéd Cauliflower with Anise and Cashews

Add this one to your post-holiday menus. It’s on ours. This is one of our favorite ways to prepare cauliflower, and after a week of complicated, heavy meals, this easy, slightly spicy food is just about right. It still has some richness due to the toasted nuts, but that’s offset by the chilies and ginger. […]

This post is for “Nancy O”, who spied pictures of our Beef Stroganoff on flickr and asked if we’d be posting it soon. It’s certainly a good time for this dish, at least here in Seattle where temperatures have been dipping into the 20s and even the teens. I made this last week when we […]
