What to do with an Inside-Out Egg?

Inside-out Egg

I found these at our Farmer’s Market last weekend. What a trip! The farmer said it is an heirloom breed of chicken that he’s in the process of re-establishing as a breeding flock, but had just a few eggs to sell. So far I’ve eaten a couple just soft-boiled like this, on toast. The taste …

Chana Dal in the Style of Puri Jagannath Temple – Recipe

Chana Dal in the Style of Puri Jagannath Temple

Every time I eat some form of beans and rice, I ask myself why I don't do that at least 3-4 times a week. Not because of the health factor (though it is great for you), or because it is famously inexpensive. Just because I find it …

Smoked Tofu Buns – Recipe

Smoked Tofu Buns

Yes, this is directly inspired by David Chang’s legendary pork buns.

This new BeaterBlade is fantastic. It looks just like the normal paddle …

Chimichurri – Argentine Parsley Sauce – Recipe

Chimichurri sauce served with polenta and tostones

Chimichurri (also spelled chimmichurri) is the quintessential sauce of Argentina, and deserves to be better known in the northerly climes. It is somewhat like an Italian pesto, but made from parsley, and without the cheese or nuts to thicken it. Like pesto, it comes together in a food processor …

Huevos Ahogados En Salsa Verde – “Drowned Eggs” – Recipe

Huevos Ahogados

This simple Mexican egg dish has a picturesque name: Huevos Ahogados, which means the eggs have been drowned. The reality isn't so violent, they have actually just been poached directly in a thin salsa. 

Let me go ahead and state the obvious: this is great hangover food.

I'm pretty much a sucker for anything involving poached …
