Vietnamese Salad Rolls (Gỏi cuốn) – Recipe

Vietnamese Salad Rolls Gỏi cuốn

I‘ve always loved Vietnamese Salad rolls (gỏi cuốn), and I’ve been making them off and on for decades, so I don’t know why I haven’t shared them with you guys before. If you haven’t had them, they are cool and refreshing, with a tender but slightly chewy rice paper wrapper surrounding thin rice noodles, lettuce, …

Hungry Ghost Moroccan Carrot Salad – Recipe

Hungry Ghost Moroccan Carrot Salad

Before we get into Ellen Kanner’s lovely book, a quick note about the James Beard awards. My book didn’t win. While it would have been great, it also would have been a pretty huge surprise as a first time author. To be a finalist was an entirely sufficient thrill. My wife, Sarina, and I had …

Roasted Asparagus with Pistachio Puree – Recipe

Asparagus with Pistachio Puree

At Sitka and Spruce and Bar Sajor, Matt Dillon serves quite a few salads and small plates with a base of various ridiculously good nut purees. Though really, puree isn’t quite the right word.

Crepes with Sage Roasted Plums and Yogurt

Julia Child’s 100th birthday is coming up on 8/15/12, and PBS has been doing this very fun #cookforjulia event to commemorate her. When they asked me to contribute a recipe, I knew right away that I wanted to do something with crepes. Julia and I go back a long way. I only have two cookbooks from my …

Saffron Risotto with Watercress Puree and Spring Vegetables – Recipe

Saffron Risotto with Watercress Puree and Spring Vegetables

Risotto is one of my favorite ways to highlight Spring ingredients. This is a version of a recipe I’m serving to a big group for Washington Green Schools this week. Depending on what ends up being fresh, I’ll probably do the puree with nettles instead of watercress, and top it with fava beans and hedgehog …
