  1. How to Host a (Homemade) Bagel Brunch

    Elijah’s Deli welcomed me with open Jewish grandma arms the first time my parents dropped me off in San Diego to start college as a freshman. And visit after visit, we always seemed to end up there for lunch or brunch. Nestled in an inconspicuous mall in La Jolla, it was the sort of place Continue…

    Going to Elijah’s felt like a visit to my grandparents’ house, where everything was friendly and familiar, and you got your food exactly how you liked it (but with a little extra butter and cream).
  2. Home Bar: R(h)um Daiquiri

    It’s summertime (except in San Francisco) and the Great Lime Shortage of 2014 has seemingly come to an end with lime prices dropping back to normal. That means it’s time for gin and tonics and other citrus-spiked drinks. I’ve long believed that most rums were too sweet for my taste, but it turns out that Continue…

  6. Magical Two Egg Maple-Cherry Pavlova + Whole Foods Giveaway

    My friend Daniel introduced me to David Sedaris back when we were in high school. He leant me the hilarious book, Holidays on Ice, and the first time he recounted a few of the stories from the book, I had, for a moment, thought he was actually talking about himself. Whenever I read anything that David Sedaris writes, Continue…

  7. Home Bar: Old-Fashioned

    Last month, we opened a call for contributors, and were thrilled to hear that our friend Jeff wanted to share his cocktail know-how with Turntable Kitchen readers. He’ll be stopping by here to share cocktail history, recipes, and more, in a new series we’re calling ‘Home Bar.’ We’re often bombarded with options in life. Sometimes Continue…

  8. Grilled Halloumi with Strawberries and Herbs

    You may not have not have noticed but last week was the first time in years that I have gone a week without posting anything to the site (if you exclude vacations). In the past, I may have started this post with “I’m sorry” but I realize that whether or not there’s a new post Continue…

  9. How To Make Coffee: The Perfect French Press Technique

    Honestly, I was a skeptic. For years, I didn’t take french press coffee seriously. Most of the coffee I’d been served from a french press wasn’t very good. It wasn’t bad – certainly better than an automatic drip machine – but also not as good as coffee prepared with a ceramic dripper or in a Continue…

  10. Berry Cobbler with Oat Dumplings

    Currently, my refrigerator is so bursting with berries and stone fruits that every day starts with a mission to consume. The fruit to yogurt ratio in my morning bowl quadruples and salads become lighter and more colorful. I buy stone fruit by the bagful; it’s so heavy, I typically have to stash it underneath Neko’s Continue…

  11. The Merry Mary: Let’s Fête

    For as long as I can remember, my dad has always ordered the same drink from the airplane beverage cart: tomato juice, plain and simple. My dad, who hates flying and has always insisted we drive to all sorts of faraway destinations, has always enjoyed the thick, salty brew. But he didn’t just drink tomato Continue…
