This is going to seem like a very simple post on cooking a steak but I think it’s one which needs to be written based on A LOT of pandemic cooking photos I see on social media channels. Also, because my mom asked.
Spring is springing and soon we’ll be segueing from winter oven cooking to summer grilling. This carrot salad is another one of our more popular market sides and while it’s fantastic in summer when good carrots abound at your favorite farmers market, it makes a great side for spring dishes. For example, this will pairContinue reading “Grated Carrot Salad (Carottes Râpées)”
Ok so I don’t necessarily want this to become all fermenting all the time but but it’s what I’ve been playing with and believe me now that we’re all moved and settling back into life I have a lot of goofy things I want to try. Like last week’s post I tried the lacto-fermentation techniqueContinue reading “Fermented Mushrooms – Triple Threat of Flavor Enhancing”
Over the past few years I found the more I prepared food and cooked for people the more I wanted to bring new experiences and flavors to them. My first dive into the fermentation world was this: Shio Koji. It’s become a staple in the kitchen and one I reach for to add another layerContinue reading “Shio Koji”
Hello again! Yes it HAS been a long while since I posted anything here. Long story short, the three of us have moved from Chicago back to the DC area. What’s that, you say? Three? Yes, three. Last October Cheryl gave brith to our baby boy. He’s quite something and we’re very happy. Anyway, backContinue reading “New Beginnings!”
We saw quite the Christmas Tree in Frankfurt earlier this month. O Tannenbaum indeed! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Flying domestically can be quite a hassle with packed airports, but flights headed to Europe can be half-empty. We like traveling in the off-season andContinue reading “Return to Provence! (Pt. Un)”
I know, I know, it’s been a while since I last posted waaaaaay back in March. Sorry, things all of sudden became very busy with our sausage business. It was right about then Cheryl and I were applying to local farmers markets for the summer. As delicious as they are, the sausages don’t sell themselves!
Wayyyy back in January I made some gnocchi Parisienne for Cheryl’s birthday dinner. Well one of them. It was much more decadent than this dish since there were copious amounts of black truffles shaved on them. Cheryl remarked that it would be ok if I made gnocchi Parisienne more often. I was flipping through MichaelContinue reading “Gnocchi Parisienne with Walnut & Gorgonzola Sauce”
As mentioned last week, we were supposed to be out of town for my birthday but it didn’t work out. That’s ok, but it left us with a big question: what to do? Normally it’s dinner at one of my favorite restaurants but I didn’t feel like that. Instead, I decided we’d get a reallyContinue reading “Grilling With a Salt Block: Happy Birthday to Me!”
