Turmeric Tea

Turmeric Tea

I started making this turmeric tea for its beneficial properties, and now it is one of my favorite daily rituals - made from a honey turmeric paste with lots of lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper.

Pluot & Poppy Yogurt  Bowl

Pluot & Poppy Yogurt Bowl

A simple late-summer breakfast bowl - Greek yogurt with a bit of chopped dill incorporated, topped with sliced pluots, toasted oats, poppy seeds, and honey.

Avocado Salad

Avocado Salad

A few snapshots from Mexico City & an avocado salad - thinly sliced avocado arranged over simple lentils, drizzled with oregano oil, toasted hazelnuts, and chives.

Chive Pancakes

Chive Pancakes

Whisper thin crepe-like pancakes made from brown rice flour, coconut milk, eggs, and sesame seeds. And my preference in pots and pans.

Shallot Vinaigrette

Shallot Vinaigrette

A bit of very belated Spring cleaning + a shallot vinaigrette made with rosé wine in place of vinegar.

Gin-marinated Olives

Gin-marinated Olives

Hot, gin-marinated olives. I used big, green Castelvetranos tossed with a mixture of gin and olive oil, big swatches of lemon peel, lots of herbs. Feta cubes were the finishing touch.

Summer Vegetable Curry

A summer vegetable curry punctuated with the citrusy pop of fresh coriander seeds.

Miso Oat Porridge

Miso Oat Porridge

A simple bowl of toasted rolled oats finished with a bit of miso, then topped with a load of minced chives, walnuts, baby radishes, and a thread of cream. Also, a few snapshots from Los Angeles.

Yellow Wax Beans & Scallions

A quick sauté of yellow wax beans, golden almonds and pepitas, topped with threads of tiny micro scallions.
