The Butcher & the Chef

Many people walk into to a butcher shop or grocery store prepared to purchase only one or two cuts of meat. Often it is based on what they grew up with, and what was used in family recipes. Little do they know, there are so many muscles that can be a substitute within the same cooking method, and are just…

Use Your Noodle

Noodles - the glorious comfort food that reminds so many cultures of home. Noodles have become the staple food worldwide (from Rome to Bejing) for centuries. The oldest evidence of man enjoying a good ole noodle dish dates back to nearly 4,000 years ago! We can thank Asian origins for the creation of the noodle, which in 2017, is consumed…

Cooked!

I think it’s safe to say that cheese is a mystery to most people. Where does it come from? How is it made? What are these ‘cultures’ people speak of? Bread can be equally puzzling – how on earth do the heavy ingredients of flour, salt, yeast, and water come together to make something so light and airy? Food, if…

Oyster Profiling

Cooking up Community

It was one of those nights: snowy and cold (the weather); tired and hungry (my husband and I). The babysitter canceled, but we were still desperate to get out of the house and let someone else cook and do the dishes. With two young (read: rowdy) kids, there aren’t a whole lot of choices of where we can drop in…
