I made a very good berry tart this week and a pretty bad shrimp and pasta dinner. I cared about how each of them came out and I was inordinately pleased with the tart which worked when it shouldn't have and I have lingering disappointment over the dinner which had... Continue reading

I wish we could use some more familiar music but there are copyright restrictions. I like the music as it is -- dawn, beach, gentle waves -- but we're going to see if there isn't an instrumental out there that's more upbeat! Thanks, Lee!
Toggle Commented Mar 30, 2011 on Lee Sandford's Bootcamp By the Beach at Rye Cooks
Lee Sandford's Bootcamp By the Beach is a fun, welcoming yet challenging beachside exercise class on Long Island Sound in Rye, New York. This clip is a preview of Rye Cooks 4, Paula Fung and Suzy Allman's cooking show on Rye TV's Channel 76. Continue reading

Fresh Lemonade. ©Rye Cooks With Paula in the Caribbean and me in the Antipodes, we're not posting as much these days. But a while back I mashed up a bowl of fresh lemonade for Paula and she commented that she expected real, fresh lemonade to be somehow inferior in flavor... Continue reading

Baby new potatoes, brussel sprouts and garlic roasted on the grill, Metal-Day style. ©Rye Cooks We were shooting at Paula's house. She was saying something about Metal Tuesday in Rye, while dumping baby potatoes into this metal thing she'd rescued from the pile. I'd never seen anything like the grilling... Continue reading

I love my Keurig K-cup single-serve coffee maker the kids gave me for Mother's Day. I hate the way the coffee itself is served with a ladle of guilt: overpackaging in non-recyclable containers, and my contribution to the 1.6 billion or so K-cups sent to the landfill after seconds of...

Rye Magazine cover, top left; and now we live in three media! ©Rye Magazine Paula and I joke that, before a single episode of "Rye Cooks" aired, we had a magazine article about us, a blog, and even an award nomination (we haven't figured out what the Margies are all... Continue reading

Camarones con mango at Coyote Flaco on Midland Ave. ©Rye Cooks We caught up on the show over ceviche and the mango shrimp (above) at Coyote Flaco, that terrific, tiny Mexican Restaurant across from Pathmark on Midland Avenue in Port Chester. They have two small dining rooms, an outdoor patio,... Continue reading

"International Cookery", from a cookbook so worn and coverless, I can't even find its name. For those who want their culture served up bracingly straight, here are spaghetti and meatballs, and two kebabs. If you've seen our blog before, you may have noticed that we're changing our look. It's a... Continue reading

Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and his chickens were on our show, and you can be, too! ©Rye Cooks Do you have experience in any area of food preparation or styling for print or television? Neither do we! That's why we'd be perfect together. Rye Cooks is looking for someone... Continue reading

Orange wedge inside the cavity of a cornish game hen, for Rye Cooks Episode 2. ©Suzy Allman Things started to go wrong early for today's kitchen shoots. For one thing, neither of us had ever used the wireless mics (isn't that surprising?), and for another, we'd borrowed a cook from... Continue reading

Watermelons, Port Chester. ©Suzy Allman Would you like to see our first show? It's here. Don't worry about the lack of picture in the first fifteen seconds; it's deliberate. Continue reading

Potatoh! ©Suzy Allman Take a perfectly self-contained, natural, oven-ready veg. Wrap it tightly, Twin-Peaks style, in plastic. Triple the price. At a dollar apiece, the Potatoh! comes in a special micro-perforated plastic and is supposed to give you an oven-baked crunch in a microwave-cooked potato. We laugh at the individually...

My teenage kids love Thai iced tea, that spicy-creamy orange beverage you spend five dollars for in Thai restaurants. Making it exactly as it comes in restaurants is an easy process -- you just have to find the tea powder. My brother dropped some off the other day after a... Continue reading

Traditional Tuna sandwich from June and Ho. ©Suzy Allman Here's the "Traditional Tuna" from June and Ho, which is anything but traditional. It's 11:30 in the morning and I'm hungry, and if there's one sandwich I crave more than any other in town, it's this: tuna salad on a raisin... Continue reading

Tiny tiny desserts in the press dining room at Yankee Stadium. ©Suzy Allman This morning I am shooting the Yankees but my mind is elsewhere -- we started shooting episode two yesterday! Can it be two episodes already? How did five months fly by like that?! Our theme for the... Continue reading

An email from Nicole at RCTV: "Can you turn on channel 76? The sound is all over the place. It's on right now. Thanks." We switch from "The Office". Oscar is saying how Michael, just as mysteriously as he arrived, is gone. Over on 76, Paula is cooking something in... Continue reading

©Suzy Allman Gorgeous measuring spoon sets, both ceramic and silver-plated, from Anthropologie on Putnam Avenue, in Greenwich. They are $18.00 a set. I've always owned several sets of measuring spoons so I don't have to stop and wash up midway through mixing something. I've never paid $18.00 for a set... Continue reading

Fiddlehead ferns. ©Suzy Allman I'm not saying I drop everything and run to the store when the fiddleheads are here. But I do get them while they are, and right now they're in a little bag in the produce section of Stop and Shop. Fiddleheads, tasting something like asparagus and... Continue reading

Finally. "Rye Cooks" is in the can, after more than four months of planning, shooting, accidentally losing, reshooting, editing, and rendering. Not exactly high-def, but not low-def, either. Right there in the meaty part of the definition curve. We had so much fun making this one, we think we'll make... Continue reading

Croissants from Patisserie Salzburg on Purchase Street. ©Suzy Allman Mother's Day morning, waiting for the teens to get up and start cooking.
