A New Take on Potato Chowder

A New Take on Potato Chowder

A chunky, satisfying, winter-time riff on potato chowder - winking at the Japanese pantry with a finishing swirl of miso, and a touch of sake in the base.

Lemongrass Turmeric Curry Paste

Lemongrass Turmeric Curry Paste

A bit about this favorite curry paste - it's vibrant, electric yellow in color, and intensely flavored. Made with a shallot base coupled with ginger, and garlic, turmeric, and serrano chiles, it's the sort of thing you can use to make a broth, or flare out simple preparations like scrambled eggs or fried rice.

Kimchi Soup

Kimchi Soup

A Kimchi Soup inspired by a bowl of fiesty, fiery, brothy cabbage soup I had years ago at Namu Gaji in San Francisco.

At The Studio: Pilpelchuma Salad

At The Studio: Pilpelchuma Salad

A friend gifted me a jar of strong pilpelchuma paste a couple of years ago, and I've been making and adapting it since. Here it shows up in a spicy yogurt dressing to top a Mason jar salad I threw together for lunch at the studio - romaine lettuce, mung beans, pepitas, and avocado...

Green Chile Whipped Goat Cheese

Green Chile Whipped Goat Cheese

This is the recipe I was working on when Sarah Lonsdale came to visit for an interview for Remodelista. Whipped goat cheese is simply combined with flecks of sautéed garlic and green chile resulting in an easy spread that pairs perfectly with a long list of things.

Heirloom Apple Salad

Heirloom Apple Salad

The sort of hearty salad I love - heirloom apples, shaved celery, and toasted nuts of your choosing. The dressing is crème fraîche spiked with rosemary, garlic and champagne vinegar

White Chard Stew

White Chard Stew

An A+ white chard riff on a ribollita, using anything and everything on hand.

At The Studio: Mung Quinoa Power Bowl

At The Studio: Mung Quinoa Power Bowl

A Mung Quinoa Power Bowl for lunch at the Quitokeeto studio. The base is simply mung beans and quinoa, and the magic comes from the deeply sautéed and spiced celery. It welcomes as many, or few, toppings as you like - roasted cherry tomatoes, salted dill yogurt, quick pickled red onions, chopped olives.

Chicory Soup & Camino Photos

Chicory Soup & Camino Photos

Camino in Oakland hosted a celebration dinner last week based on recipes included in Near & Far - I though I'd share some photos. Also, one of my favorite soups made the menu that night(!) and I've included the recipe here - a brothy, restorative barley soup with chicories punctuated with flecks of preserved lemon, a bit of chile confetti, and a silky dollop of creme fraiche.
