If all was gone, if, suddenly, we wake up into nothing, without anything we ever possessed (don’t worry, clothes still on), what remains?
Nothing is more quintessentially English than the Victoria Sponge. It's up there with afternoon tea, cricket, and The Beatles.
Who would've thought they could improve butter? Brown butter has been all the rage lately and for good reason!
We've all been learning how to make bread during quarantine. I'm not sure why this trend began but I'm here for it! I started off my bread journey making classic white bread, and then I started experimenting with some flavors. This herb-crusted bread is my favorite rendition yet! It's super simple, but the spices on top add a nice pop of flavor. I'll add some of my notes along with the recipe, and, as always, I encourage you to use this recipe as a guide and not a rulebook. Feel free to add your own flavors, take out some of my ingredients, get creative. Just be sure to make it a little bit fancy! Now, without further ado, here is the recipe.
As a chef I have always loved cooking and baking. Growing up in rural Ohio my mother and grandmother made fresh homemade bread all the time but that was something that, as much as I enjoyed it, I didn't have the time for while working full time. Since most of us have been unable to work with the COVID-19 pandemic I have started baking bread almost weekly and am loving it!

Summer 2020 for many people will be one that will be typified by continued travel restrictions, more time than usual spent at home, routines continuing to grow stale, and a general desire for a bit more excitement. Enter the Moroccan Passport. Inspired by the strong, hot, sometimes overly sweet and often bitter, strong minted green tea served with most meals, often between meals, and as a show of welcoming hospitality in Morocco, a Moroccan Passport is a much gentler, refreshing, iced mocktail with a balanced sweetness, just a touch of citrus, and brings a light flavor of date that those who hate dates will love.
Summer is the perfect time for drinks.
When it comes to refreshments, I’m a hardcore water person (not to be mistaken for a water bender). Here’s my conundrum with mainstream beverages - soda, juice, cocktails, etc. The first icy slllp! is replenishing enough, but then there’s this sickly saccharine aftertaste that lingers in the back of my tongue. Animalistically, this mechanism works to the favor of said drink, making me want to sllp more so as to momentarily wash away any syrupy acidity. In the end however, my duped palette is left with an even larger sugary stain. I, monkey brain, then turn the bottle to its nutritional info and realize that I’ve just ingested 55 grams of the sweet stuff.
Nimbu pani is Hindi and literally translates to “lime water.”
Who doesn't love cookies? I don't know anyone who isn't made a little happier by a good cookie. And let's face it, cookies are kind of like pizza, even the bad ones are good...... This cookie is the perfect combination of crisp around the edges and still a little soft and chewy in the center.
