Feast of the Seven Fishes (Year 2)

This year’s Feast of the Seven Fishes is probably going to be reduced by a couple courses to maybe 5 or even just 3. The important part of the Feast is that it’s an odd number of courses. The most traditional of my courses is the baccala alla vicentina, which is one of my favorites. … Continue reading »

I don’t think I will be making a full Thanksgiving meal this year, however I will do a Thanksgiving-inspired menu. I … Continue reading »

Favorite Fall Recipes

While we are in the midst of trying to sell the apartment, I’ve been falling back on old favorites. Last night, I made a version of this Puglian specialty, orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage and every time I make it, it brings me back to a night in southern Puglia.

We have been having a long heat wave here in NY, and I can’t quite bring myself to heat up the kitchen again until it breaks. I’m thinking about some no-cook or quick-cooking meals, and of course, the first thing I think of is salad. I love a beautiful caprese salad with fresh tomatoes and … Continue reading »

Recipes for Spring

Spring is definitively here, and maybe we’re already into summer with temperatures hitting close to 90 degrees today. It’s time for some no-cook or quick cooking recipes so that I don’t overheat the apartment with the stove.
