A Good Shredded Salad recipe
A Good Shredded Salad

One of the things I love about having a work studio is our location. It means that most days, at one point or another, I find myself standing in the middle of San Francisco's Chinatown. This is a shredded salad inspired by the neighborhood - lots of cabbage and scallions, tossed with soy sauce, honey, and cilantro, and amount of crunch toasted peanuts, and celery.

Fig Leaf Coconut Rice recipe

This coconut rice is special thanks to a tip Claudia Schwartz (the lovely, charming proprietress of San Francisco's Bell'occhio) gave me. Simmering the rice grains with a single fig leaf gives the rice a wonderful, unexpected flavor and fragrance. Serve topped with toasted pepitas, dried figs, scallions, and pan-fried tofu.

Kale and Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes

My favorite mashed potato recipe - creamy mashed potatoes flecked with finely chopped greens and garlic. Adding a green like kale, and golden threads of drizzled olive oil is a great way to add color and nutritional umph to America's favorite starch-packed side dish.
