‘Daily Dish’

We’re looking for a few (more) good butchers. Can you help?

My story about the return of good butchers drew a couple of email responses that made me think. Wayne DeBord commented: "I can't tell you how I miss the corner butchers that were in every corner grocery when I was a kid. Maybe down the road the Times' food department would consider an investigation to […]


Book review: ‘At Home on the Range’ by Margaret Yardley Potter

You've probably never seen the fine art of bread-making broken down quite like this in a recipe: "Now relax. Sit down, light a cigarette, write a letter or make your own plans for the next fifteen minutes while the dough 'tightens up' as we bakers say. "Is your cigarette finished? Let's go. This is fun." […]

Behind the scenes at the Beard Awards

"I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date" kept running through my head as I sat stuck in New York traffic on the way to the James Beard Restaurant Awards on Monday night.

Dinner tonight! Spring herb salad with warm blue cheese

This spring salad — tossed with a simple, bright vinaigrette and chopped fresh herbs — makes for a great meal combined with crumbled blue cheese. But imagine coating the cheese with some  panko crumbs and briefly cooking the cheese until the panko is lightly browned and the cheese just starts to ooze, and you can […]


Forklore: Biscuits, cooked once

Everybody knows that biscotti are cooked twice. Well, in Latin "twice cooked" is bis coctus, the expression from which biscotto comes, but that doesn't mean that when you ask for a biscotto in Italy, you'll get something that has been cooked twice. The original biscotto certainly was a twice-cooked bread made from barely leavened dough. […]


Getting your goat at Tar & Roses

Word travels fast when it comes to the special goat menu at Andrew Kirschner's new Tar & Roses restaurant in Santa Monica. Some friends were having dinner there one night and spotted the big platter of golden roasted meat coming out of the kitchen. "What's that?" they asked. When they learned the details — a […]
