My palate has wanderlust again. I’ve been thinking quite a bit about Vietnamese food and the influences the French left behind. I have a hankering for Pho. I’m desperate for a good bánh mì. So it should come as no surprise that when I was invited to put together a dessert recipe Yagööt and the… Read More A Luxurious Dessert | Strawberries, Red Wine, Sriracha
Eating soup when it’s hot out can strike people as odd. But think French-inspired Pho in steamy Vietnam, or British-influenced Mulligatawny in India.

Friends of ours love it already and we had heard from several folks (even strangers!) that it was their favorite spot in… Read More If You Have A Moment | JCT Kitchen
We just got back from vacation in Georgia. It’s such a great state with so many people committed to delicious food fresh off the farm. My kind of place, really. And to be honest, they make some mean fried chicken. While I was there I couldn’t help but do some canning of some fresh Georgia… Read More The Teaches of Peaches | Herb Nectars
