Corned Beets – Recipe

Beets Cooked Pastrami Style

Corned beets. It started out more as a pun then anything else, but I figured beets cooked with the spices typically associated with corned beef would be good. Then I tried an iteration with the ChefSteps House Rub 01 and that was also fantastic.

In any case, it is the texture that makes these beets delightful. They …

Ba-Da Bing! What A Sweetheart!

Bing Cherries

No, I haven’t been watching too many episodes of the Sopranos. These beautiful Bing cherries are from Batch’s Best Family Farms. I got them from my friends over at ChefShop.com. Tim Mar & his crew have a knack for tracking down great food.

Smoked Tofu Buns – Recipe

Smoked Tofu Buns

Yes, this is directly inspired by David Chang’s legendary pork buns. I just did them with smoked tofu instead of pig, and my pickle is a little different, and I kinda like kochujang (Korean miso/chili paste) on them instead of hoisin sauce. Next time I think I might swap out the pickle in favor of …

Sichuan Peppercorn Peanuts – A Snack That Wants A Beer

Sichuan Peppercorn Peanuts

The idea for these came from a packaged Japanese snack that I find totally addictive. It is easy to make at home, and then you can adjust the ratio of heat, orange zest, salt, and the tongue-numbing zing of the Sichuan peppercorn to your own preference.
