• Buckwheat Flatbread with Strawberries, Avocado + Herbs

    There are certain foods that always make me happy. Warm, homemade cookies. Ice cream with a bittersweet chocolate sauce poured on top. Flatbreads of any sort — pizza, pita, and naan.

  • French Tomato Tarts

    I’ve been on a big tomato kick this summer. I’ve eaten more bowls gazpacho and salmorejo than I can count, and I’ve made this tart only once, so I thought it was time to do it again before the tomatoes packed up and left for the season.

  • Strawberries, Summer Corn + Zucchini

    It’s not that I’m anti-dessert when it comes to strawberries — lord knows I’ve eaten my share of strawberry white chocolate ice cream and far too much strawberry compote with rhubarb on top of my yogurt — but I love experimenting with them in savory dishes, like this one.

  • Caponata

    When I was in Sicily last year, everywhere I went I was served some version of caponata, the island’s signature eggplant dish, always at room temperature and as part of a first course. I had caponata with celery and without, and one time with carrots, too. Some had pine nuts or almonds with tiny raisins.

  • Cold Cucumber + Zucchini Soup

    It’s been super hot in Santa Fe lately — I’m talking 90 degree days and no A/C — so I do what I can to keep cool. A good fan helps. So does iced jasmine green tea. And cold soups. Lots and lots of cold soups.
