Porcini (Cèpes) Mushroom Crudo With Clementine Oil – Recipe

Porcini Crudo with Clementine Oil

Whenever I get my hands on a rare or expensive ingredient, I look for ways to feature it in a simple, pure form that shows off the natural beauty and flavor. These porcini are only available for a weeks a year, and cost a small fortune, at least here in the Seattle area. In Tuscany, …

Black Rice Fritters with Chimichurri

It is traditional for Hanukkah to eat foods cooked in oil, but after a few days of killer latkes and bunuelos, I think we all feel the need to lighten things up a bit.

Strawberries and Cream Birthday Cake, Momofuku Milk Bar Style

Strawberry Birthday Cake, Momofuku Milk Bar Style

No, this isn’t a miniature cake. It is actually 6 inches in diameter, and, I don’t know, 6 inches tall and serves 8 pretty handily.

I’m a pretty lousy pastry cook. I typically don’t have the patience or skills to create perfect geometric shapes, frost things just right and so-on. So when I got the Momofuku …
