The next time you think of making a caprese salad, consider this instead. The special combination of both raw and roasted tomatoes, with bright harissa oil brings an element of the unexpected.
Pesto season is on. Here's my favorite pesto recipe alongside a handful of other pesto-centric preparations, suggestions, and links.
A summer fruit salad - berries, peaches and pluots drizzled with a citrusy lemongrass and honey dressing, topped with toasted walnuts, and lots of mint.
The sort of meal I crave after a travel stint. Lightly cooked cauliflower is chopped, then tossed, with turmeric, cumin, cayenne, and a touch of ghee - add sliced avocado, hard-boiled eggs, toasted seeds, rainbow chard stems, lettuces.
A favorite cocktail, Palomas push all the buttons - bright, refreshing, tart, with a kiss of sweet and salty. They also couldn't be simpler.
Iced Green Tea - cold-brewed, accented with rose and a bit of whole coriander - such a pretty, warm weather refresher.
A chunky zucchini soup, beautifully spiced with a thin, bright, assertive coconut-lime curry broth & a lesson in being adaptable.
The quickest and easiest of lunches. Soba noodles tossed with dollops of crème fraîche, and showered with lots of chives and grated hard-boiled egg yolk.
An herb-packed rice salad recipe with peanuts, toasted coconut, and a strong boost of fresh lime. A recipe to keep in your back pocket this summer.
Peter Reinhart's Napoletana pizza dough recipe. It makes my all-time favorite pizza dough using a delayed-fermentation method.
