Spicy Tuna with Garlic Whistles Sandwich

Monday, June 27th, 2005

This recipe is a silly little discovery. It’s just me reporting on a fun way to use garlic whistles. Garlic whistles are the tops of growing garlic plants. They are sold bundled up in a hand sized circle, with the flower just as a beginning bud. If they were left on the garlic plant they [...]

Soft Cooked Duck Eggs with Warm Anchovy Vinegarette

Friday, June 24th, 2005

This month’s IMBB event celebrates the simple joy of eggs. Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients of cooking, serving as a highlighted player, or blending into the mysteries of wonderful baked goods. As any converting vegan knows, giving up eggs in ones diet is a difficult task! I choose the simple route for [...]

Food as Book, Book as Food

Pisces Albacore Tuna

Wednesday, June 15th, 2005

A new pick this time around at Eugene’s Tuesday Farmers’ market is troll-caught North Pacific Premium Albacore by the fishing vessel Pisces.

Eugene’s Farmers’ Markets

Tuesday, June 14th, 2005

Today’s visit to the Farmers’ Market yielded quite the bounty of goodies. Raspberries and cherries are right on schedule with their fruity sweetness. Garlic is holding strong and cute curly garlic whistles are still to be found. Broccoli and corn are getting an early start to their season, and I think I spied fava beans [...]

Recipe for the Obsessive Cook

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

There came a time in my life when I found myself no longer satisfied with buying large corporate made foods. This largely included fast food, but also means no Kraft products, and in this particular context- no Hershey’s Syrup. This recipe is adapted from Alton Brown’s recipe for Cocoa Syrup from the Art of Darkness [...]
