  1. Home Bar: The Negroni, a Drink For Every Occasion

    It’s believed that Count Camillo Negroni asked his bartender to stiffen up an Americano cocktail (comprised of soda water, sweet vermouth, and campari) with a swap of gin instead of soda water way back in Italy in 1919. Since then, the Negroni has become the perfect mixed drink for any occasion — a sublime balance Continue…

    There is so much love for this drink that an entire week is dedicated to it, with participation from restaurants and bars around the world.
  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Crispy Salt and Vinegar Potatoes: These Are The Days

    Every year, I look forward to Bon Appetit’s travel issue because it reminds me of the main reason I travel: to eat, of course. I plan my days around breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee breaks, and cocktails. The more meals, the better. Several years ago, I first read about Hartwood restaurant in Tulum, Mexico, and convinced Continue…

  11. Shakshuka: I Owe You

    “I owe you a phone call” is what my friends and I say to each other whenever we find ourselves exchanging a flurry of emails and text messages with snippets of life updates. Some, more profound, others, less so (“You were right! Overalls ARE back in style!”). It’s unfortunate, but in my mind, I owe Continue…
