Magic in the Sullivan Catskills

One of those new traditions for me is finding magic in the Sullivan Catskills of New York at Peace, Love & Lights— the winter holiday light show at Bethel Woods being presented by the Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association. Peace, Love & […]

A Visit to Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food

Last year, I went to Northwest Arkansas to present as a chef in the Fayetteville Roots Festival. It was a really special experience because I taught a VIP women-only butchering and cooking class as part of my time there and got to meet women who had driven from all over to be there. We made this chicken tagine recipe from the chickens that we butchered and then sat down for […]

The thing about loquats is that you need to pick them in that pivotal moment before they drop but after they have sweetened enough. Pick them too early, and they have a sourness that isn’t quite palatable. The thing is that you can combat that in a […]

Quail Starters

What to do with a mess of Scaled quail and some rabbits? That was the question after our last winter quail hunt to New Mexico. A dinner party plan was being hatched. We’ll need some starters for the event was part of the discussion, so my wheels were turning and I remembered a dining epiphany from early last year, Panko.
