Really, I am almost beside myself when I’ve got the ingredients for this one. I can’t take credit for the perfection of a pairing that is a cumin vinaigrette, roasted beets and carrots, crisp tortilla and French cheese. Look to the amazing Hugh Acheson of 5&10 in Athens, Georgia for that. Look to him… Read More My Favorite Take Along Salad | Roasted Carrot and Beetroot
Shhh, come here. I almost don’t want to tell you about this. The food was delicious and the shop was so lovely and quiet, almost like a secret. If you find out and tell two friends, and they tell two friends, and they tell two friends, well, you get the point. But I think Tuula would… Read More A European Lunch: Tuula’s
When I was at Pearl Alley Farmers Market, I picked up two of the last three bundles of leeks at a stall (how awful that I don’t remember which farm it was!). I have been lovingly obsessing over them and plotting what to do that would be a proper homage to one of my most… Read More Leek Pie

So to make sure we touched as many points on the Eat Local Challenge Pledge Card as we could this week, my family visited the cheerful Caskey family at Skillet for lunch today. Even home-body Persephone… Read More “Eat at a Locally-Minded Restaurant”: Let’s go to Skillet!
I couldn’t help myself. In light of Saturday’s article in the WSJ, saying bacon is singing its swan song, I defiantly made a tasty fall salad with bacon ends from Curly Tail Farm. I can’t help it if it goes so well with fall apples from Gillogly Orchards and sharp cheddar from Ohio Farm Direct and a… Read More Weekday Apple Salad
Celeriac is just starting to look great again. I found a fabulous bulb with all the lovely green stalks still on top. You’ll often find ones with no green on them later in the winter season. Don’t worry, they’re still great, you just won’t have the celery-like straws off the top for your Bloody Marys (genius!). But… Read More Lunch in Antibes | Celeriac Remoulade
