Red Dumpling Sauce

Sunday, January 31, 2010

When I first realized that Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day is on the same day this year, I thought, oh no! Disastrous! Would I have to share my V-day with others? Would Chinese New Year get pushed aside at restaurants? The sky is falling! When the Chicken Little in me finally calmed down, I […]

I was never the type to get excited over movie stars. I don’t follow Perez (is that his name?). I didn’t recognize Susan Sarandon, Katy Perry, or Gary Sinise when they were right in front of me. So, it follows that I don’t buy clothing or shoes made popular by a star, or sun glasses […]

I read about
Kajitsu 414 East 9th Street, New York, NY 10009 on No Recipes, when Marc interviewed Chef Masato Nishihara, back in August. I was eager to go and experience Shojin cuisine, an ancient Japanese style developed in Zen Buddhist monasteries, a style I’m unfamiliar with. The restaurant is vegan.

Monday, January 25, 2010

Last time, we went to Brooklyn Fare (and loved it), we gave you pictures and descriptions, all through the eyes of a customer. This time, I asked if I could come early and watch them prep, maybe even chat with Chef Cesar Ramirez.
Enjoy these photos and video clips from
Brooklyn Fare 200 […]

Un-fried Buffalo Wings

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Most people are amazed to find out that Buffalo Wings are flavored with just butter and hot sauce. Yup, that’s it: simple and delicious. It’s tangy and spicy, over a base of fatty chicken-y goodness. Plus, who doesn’t love anything fried.

Alton Brown’s recipe adds a little garlic, but he stretches further by making his without […]
