• Eggplant Tacos with Roasted Poblano + Caramelized Onions

    There is nothing wrong with eggplant in a taco. We do not need to keep eggplant hidden from sight, covered up with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese in a casserole dish and baked for hours. Please. It’s summer. There are so many interesting things to do with eggplant while it’s here.

  • Salmorejo

    Summertime in Paris means cooling off any way you can. Iced coffees give way to chilly rosés and windows are kept open in hopes of replacing the tired, hot air trapped between the walls. It also means cold soups of any sort – to start and to finish meals, at home and at restaurants all over the city. I never had strawberry soup before I lived in France – now I think about putting everything I see at the market into the blender and chilling it down.

  • Pizzettas

    He introduced me to ravioli di spinaci with a simple brown butter sauce. Our first date was over pizza, with vin santo and cantuccini, the small Italian almond biscotti, for dessert. He spoke not a word of English. I didn’t speak any Italian – not then.

  • Flank Steak + Charred Tomatoes and Asparagus

    Do not spend your afternoon in the kitchen this weekend. It’s the Fourth of July, for goodness’ sake. Time to be near the swimming pool, with a stack of books to read (or loaded onto your Kindle, if you’re like me), with an icy drink nearby.

  • Salsa Verde

    If there are two bowls of salsa on the table, a verde and a roja – excuse me, would you please pass the chips? – I’m going for the green one every time. Nothing against the red, mind you, but to me, salsa verde is a more exotic creature.
