Taste buds prickle; wanderlust triggered. An Argentine barbecue (asado) enticed me to Patagonia. A friend gave me a vial of ground sumac berries--4 months later I was waking at dawn to the "Call To Prayer" in Turkey. Porcini to Tuscany, and so on.

I confess, my favorite part of a dish of steamed mussels is the flavor-infused briny brew. Therefore, having the appropriate “sop” for this sauce, to me, is crucial to their enjoyment. A freshly baked baguette is a given. But I often serve steamed mussels, and their sauce on a bed of freshly cooked linguini. A dish … Full recipe post
I’ve eaten skate in restaurants but have never purchased this fish to use in a recipe.

If I’m incarcerated, for whatever reason, and am granted one last dinner, every course would include oysters — appetizers to desserts. Perhaps not dessert, but certainly Grilled (or baked) Oysters with Romano and Creole Sauce and Oyster Stew. This is a recipe my brother shared with me; I made it for the first time, and … Full recipe post

I’d guess most states in America have several sources of mouth-watering, municipal pride – a local food lover’s destination, perhaps, or culinary product the citizenry reference with great passion. In one state, for instance, the locals may point you in the direction of a barbecue joint, and tell you their pulled pork sandwich was voted … Full recipe post

Come mid-May, my palate stings for the woodsy taste and inimitable bite of freshly picked Michigan morels. This wizened druid of a fungi has an elusive flavor, hinting of forest, earth and rain. It’s a flavor that will, sadly, vanish if carelessly handled. Every May, hordes of Michiganders head for the forest, especially after a … Full recipe post
“…Put the lime with the coconut, then you feel better” (Harry Nilsson) I understand that this is the third day in a row I’m eating fish. Honestly, I could eat fish most everyday of the year. Why?
