A Good Shredded Salad
A Good Shredded Salad - September 3, 2014

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
Fig Leaf Coconut Rice - May 15, 2014

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
Kale and Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes - March 8, 2007

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.
