Ginger and Black Pepper Rice Pilaf – Recipe

Ginger and Black Pepper Basmati Rice

Flavoring your basmati rice is an easy way to add variety to an Indian menu. The possibilities are endless. Today’s version, with ample quantities of grated ginger root and freshly ground pepper is one of my favorites.

Saffron Chickpea Stew with Grilled Porcini Mushrooms – Recipe

Grilled Porcini with Chickpea Stew

First of all, let me say that this stew is well worth making even if you can’t find fresh porcini mushrooms. I can only get them in Seattle for a few weeks a year, and they are quite expensive. You could serve the same stew with morels or crimini mushrooms (either of which you would …

Bibim Naengmyeon – Jjolmyeon – Cold and Spicy Korean Noodles – Recipe

Bibim Naengmyeon (Cold Korean Noodles)

Cold. Not cool. Cold, cold, cold. Ice cold. That’s what makes these noodles great.

I first had at a restaurant named Mandoo Bar in the New York’s Koreatown, although they call it Joll Noodles. Perhaps there is a difference, but google has failed to set me straight, so if any of you can shed more light on …
