Superfood Tapenade

Superfood Tapenade

A superfood tapenade of sorts - green olives, walnuts, and good olive oil boosted with anise, and a bit of the wheatgrass powder I sometimes add to drinks or dressings - crumbled nori would be a great substitute.

Green Smoothie

Rye Crepes

Rye Crepes

The new year is here, and so far it has been crisp air, clear skies, thickest softest sweaters, afternoon reads, and big stews. We made crepes New Years Eve, and celebrated fresh starts, optimism, and our hopes for the coming months - a simple night of sparkling wine, crepes, and a far-away view of the downtown fireworks.

Rye Pasta

Rye Pasta

A rustic rye pasta dough made with my little, hand-cranked, Mercato Atlas pasta machine.

How to Make Ghee

How to Make Ghee

I make homemade ghee from good butter every few weeks. It's a process I enjoy, and it yields one of my favorite cooking mediums. For those of you who might be unfamiliar, ghee is an unsalted butter that has had the milk solids removed after separating from the butterfat, resulting in beautiful, golden, pure fat with an unusually high smoking point.

Olive Oil Braised Spring Vegetables

Olive Oil Braised Spring Vegetables

Back in the late 90's Vogue Entertaining + Travel was the Australia-based magazine I splurged for any time I came across it on the news stand. Today's recipe for silky, tender olive oil-braised spring vegetables was inspired by paging through one of the cookbooks Vogue published in conjunction with the magazine.

Guacamole

Guacamole

To make great guacamole you have to go off-recipe. It's all about the in-between steps, decisions, and knowing when avocados are at their best.

Poached Eggs in White Wine

Poached Eggs in White Wine

Eggs poached in white wine peppered with minced shallots and herbs. A simple twist that immediately transformed the humble poached egg into something just a hint special and unexpected. Served over smashed avocado on toasted bread.

Spoon Butter
