In the last couple of years I have run across recipes that included Japanese yuzu kosho, but I didn’t know what it was. There were so many other recipes I wanted to make, so I just stuck those yuzu kosho recipes in a file and moved on. One day recently I was checking my files [...]

I am such a sucker for grill marks. There is something about them that makes my artist’s eye really happy and quivery. I have been seeing grilled or fried cheese just about everywhere and really wanted to try my hand at it. Halloumi cheese seems to be the one most frequently chosen for grilling because [...]

To help celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year, I thought I would cook up some tacos. But not just your simple ground beef, lettuce, tomato, cheese and sour cream. Oh no, I’m making sliced pork soaked in an achiote marinade and grilled with onions and pineapple. These grilled beauties are laid in a warm corn [...]

I love lamb in all its guises. So when I ran across this Lamb & Shrimp Kabobs with Red Harissa recipe in an old copy of Bon Appetit magazine from July 2011, initially I was aghast. Lamb and shrimp? What were they thinking? I was horrified, incredulous, OMG it was so weird. Then I looked [...]

I have come to the conclusion that we are not having Summer in 2010. Today the high in Manhattan Beach was 69 degrees F and I am still wearing my winter clothes to work. You know that phenomenon where when Halloween happens, a couple of days later it’s Thanksgiving and a couple of days after [...]
