I made these lobster raviolis for a friend of mine who spent 9 months craving sushi, shellfish, and martinis. I promised her lobster once her baby was born and here it is! This is not the easiest dish especially if... Continue reading

That long title is a complicated way of saying: one basic recipe, two different results. My Mom makes Dutch Apple Baby for fancy brunches. It's a crowd pleaser. Especially when you enter carrying a poofy egg soufflé that smells like... Continue reading

I know you're wondering if I've totally lost my mind with pumpkin recipes in March, but when I said (in my last pumpkin mole post) we have 70 pounds of sugar pie pumpkins that are in dire need of attention... Continue reading

It's been a breathtaking week at Echo valley farm. The nights specifically with a moon so big and bright you'd think it was Alaska in the summertime. I look out on the nighttime fields to find the vegetable rows glowing... Continue reading

Farmer Kate stumbles down a ravine backward that borders the Pescadero creek. She trips, she falls, she screams. Farmer Jeff and I come running over thinking Kate has broken her back. But no, she has just landed in a whole... Continue reading

Blue Hubbard squash has orange colored sweet flesh. It will feed a family of eight or more, can be tossed around by children without fear of damage, may double as an excersize ball, and few people have heard of it... Continue reading

Wild mushrooms are still going strong and we have a secret forage place for chanterelles at Echo Valley Farm. I'm not allowed to say where exactly for obvious reasons. The bigger woodier ones are great to chop up for duxelles... Continue reading

"Do your yoga friends know you eat brains and thymus glands and crazy stuff like that?" He asks popping a crispy morsel in his mouth after expertly swiping it through sauce... "Um, no, how's the new dish?" I ask with... Continue reading

My dusty pastry skills were recently tested when a Persian friend asked if I would recreate his Grandmother's orange cake perfumed with cardamom and saffron. Then he gave me his Grandmother's relic bundt pan to make it in. Then my... Continue reading

NOTE TO READER: I JUST FOUND OUT YOU CANNOT REMOVE MUSSELS WITH TOOLS! MUST DO WITH HANDS ONLY! GOOD LUCK! Jeeps McGee, my trusty vehicle, starts up with a gutsy roar. The performance exhaust shakes me with thunderous throaty vibrations.... Continue reading

It seems that I am the last to find out that both Orson and Citizen Cake will be closing their doors in SF. As the Chef de Cuisine who opened the last reincarnation of Citizen Cake I find this disheartening.... Continue reading

The secret ingredient in this kale & fuyu persimmon salad is hidden in the vinaigrette: the bizarre and fascinating citron known as Buddha's Hand. The fleshless fruit imparts a lovely fragrant sweet lemon essence minus the furniture polish aftertaste. Use... Continue reading

Yes Pink Pearl apples are really pink! No 'burdock' is not a character from an Agatha Christie mystery but a root tasting of thistle. Yes 'savory' refers to the aromatic herb that pairs excellent with poultry. And 'sage' is sage.... Continue reading

Red Kuri or Potimarron in French, is a tasty baking squash. They look like flame colored pumpkins with a toy top shape. If a chestnut, a sugarpie pumpkin, and a butternut squash fused, potimarron is what that union would taste... Continue reading

Creamed onions have been part of our Thanksgiving tradition for at least two generations and I can't explain why because they don't add much to the plate beyond a colorless, bland, creamy blob. All the same I've been craving them... Continue reading

Piping hot pumpkin-sage biscuits smothered in butter and honey are addictive! I could eat these all day long. And I have been eating them all day long while recipe testing. My Executive Chef in New York liked to walk down... Continue reading

I love October in California, it's the inbetween month. Summer's bounty is still waving a final farewell with dry farmed tomatoes, sweet late season corn, and heirloom peppers while Winter squashes are tempting us closer to the hearth. These little... Continue reading

This soup is only as good as the broth. (You know where I'm going with this don't you?) Despite the somewhat rustic start to making this broth, the finish is surprisingly light and feminine in flavor with lemongrass, ginger, and... Continue reading
