How To Make Pakistani Gooseberry (Amla) Pickle

Despite my advanced (advancing?) age I love Instagram. Any downtime (standing in a queue, riding the bus) I will scroll away on my phone, staring happily at hazy beaches peopled with the lithe and the tanned; folks’ daft dogs coming way too close to the camera; style parades of impossibly impractical…

Upside Down Olive Oil Georgia Peach Cake (Gluten Free Y’All)

Originally posted on food on fifth:
“Upside Down Olive Oil Peach Cake”(Gluten Free) This past week has been busy in a fun way. Photo shoots both editorial and commercial, celebrations of a new cookbook release that I worked on, and a weekend full of the World Cup and a lazy baking Saturday. The other fun…

Originally posted on food to glow:
A few weeks ago on Instagram I posted a pic that had a number of you intrigued, titled #foodiepenpal. “What a great idea!” “What’s a Foodie Penpal?” and “How can I get involved?”was the gist of the responses to my pic. A few of you were quite excited about…

All About Smoking + A Pulled Pork Sandwich

Originally posted on the cutting board diaries:
Barbecue is a far cry from the days past when you were simply handed a platter of meat and sent outside to a grill. I mean, you don’t see leg of lamb braising contests at every turn, or weekend-long fish sautéing competitions — at least not yet —…

broad bean, orzo and preserved lemon salad with brazil nut pesto

Originally posted on Gastrogeek:
The taste of purest summer (even if it is a bit schizo and drizzly out there). Especially good with a bit of grilled dsalmon on the side.  Lunch box leftovers an added bonus. FOR THE SALAD broad beans podded and blanched for a minute orzo, cooked in chicken stock, drained and…

Fig and Labneh Tartines with Maple and Cardamom (i.e. posh toasts!)

Originally posted on food to glow:
Don’t let the fancy name fool you, tartine is just French for ‘open-faced sandwich’. And I find it easier to say than the Danish smørrebrød, or the Finnish voileipä – the latter of which I have eaten when ages ago I did some work in Helsinki. Cured herring and butter as I recall.…

Gardener’s Green Shakshuka

Originally posted on food to glow:
This post should have been subtitled, “How To Deal with a Glut of Greens.” The long and short of it is that I have planters and planters full of green things. Big green things. Sword-like black kale, great frothy tufts of curly kale (redbore and Pentland), umbrella-like rainbow and Swiss chards, two…

french cherry tomato tart

Originally posted on daisy's world:
Summer is in full swing, which means tomatoes are at their peak – ripe, juicy, and bursting with flavor, especially when roasted. This French-style tart is a wonderful way to showcase them. The recipe is simple and easy, using ingredients you probably already have on hand. If you’re pressed for…

Colombian Cream of Avocado Soup – lightened up and vegan

Originally posted on food to glow:
I love being introduced to new foods and recipes. Don’t you? Pouring over others’ food blogs, visiting markets in far-flung cities and countries, ordering the wackiest (within reason) thing on the menu. Love it. Possibly my favourite food-related activity – other than eating the stuff – is looking at commonplace ingredients…

Spiced Golden Turmeric Milk – drinking to your health

Originally posted on food to glow:
This is my science-updated take on an old Ayurvedic treatment beloved of Indian grandmothers. Treatment for what, you may wonder. Just about everything. Although clinical evidence supporting its cure-all reputation is scanty (not many big studies have been funded), what is around looks very promising. Very promising indeed. And…
