  1. Coddled Egg and Anchovy Salad

    When the publishers of Falling Cloudberries sent me a copy of the book I had been ogling over for months, I already had my eye on a certain teatime treat. But as I began flipping through the gorgeous tome, I started bookmarking all sorts of recipes. The cookbook, which can almost be called a scrapbook Continue…


  2. Shaved Asparagus Salad with Anchovy Vinaigrette

    There are those days when you just feel lucky. The world might not be perfect and your life might not be perfect, but when you put things into perspective, you can’t help but think that life is grand. All too often, I find myself getting overwhelmed by the little things. Small frustrations and anxieties that Continue…

  3. Summer Stone Fruit Salad

    There is no season better than summer. Sure, other seasons have their charms, but from the time we are small children, we are instilled with a love for summer. Summer is being able to run in the grass barefoot. Summer is staying out later than you normally would because you don’t realize it’s already nine Continue…

  4. Blood Orange, Pickled Red Onion, Gray Sea Salt: My Salad

    You and your blood oranges. I’ve been hearing that phrase consistently every winter for the past five years. You see, when I lived in Italy my junior year of college, I became obsessed. I’d never seen such a thing in my life before: an orange that looked like a regular old orange from the outside, Continue…

  5. Thomas Keller’s Fall Salad, in Winter

    Hello, there. Happy New Year. 2010…Can you believe it? I’m certainly still in awe. We had a lovely celebration this year, first by ourselves, and then with a small group of friends. Unlike past years, we decided to cook in before heading out, and boy did we cook in. After receiving Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc Continue…

  6. Roast Shallot Salad: From the Archives While We're Away

    We’re kicking things off in Buenos Aires. While we’re here, we’re sharing some of our favorite posts from the archives. Some of you might remember a time before Musical Pairings. This salad is still one of my favorites that I’ve shared here. The roasted shallots are truly phenomenal. See you soon! -Kasey Originally posted on Continue…

  7. Seared Tuna with Hawaiian Sea Salts and Heirloom Bean Salad

    You might think, if you briefly glanced at our recipes index, that we largely subsist on a diet of soups, seared tuna, scallops and cookies. I’d like to convince you that this is not true…but not today. Today, I’m going to share with you two dead simple recipes that will blow your socks off. But Continue…

  8. Shaved Cucumber Salad with Red Onion and Herbs

    One of my favorite gifts to give and receive is a great book. I haven’t always been a voracious reader–I’ve gone through cycles. In elementary school, I would lug bagfuls of books from the library–nothing too heavy, mentally, but enough to keep me occupied and entertained. In late junior high and early high school, I Continue…

  9. Balsamic Beets and Greens with Oranges and Pecans

    Beets are the shaggy, frumpy, rough around the edges type of vegetable that reminds me of a grumpy old history teacher. With awkward magenta lips and a cardigan that needs a lawn mower. But one that, once you get to know, is really a treasure to behold and a person that in your memories is Continue…

  10. Seared Ahi Tuna with Sesame Spring Avocado Salad

    Seared Ahi Tuna is the sort of standard dish that you’ll find at any Asian-inspired restaurant, and it is one of my favorite things. Like a good piece of steak, ahi tuna requires very little cooking time (if any at all). More, tuna is extremely fatty, so you’ll find that it cooks very well and Continue…

  11. Roasted Beet Salad

    Since I was a child, I’ve had a pretty antagonistic approach to beets. Coming from a Russian family, I was forced to eat a lot of Borscht–hot, chilled, with sour cream, with cucumber, with sliced eggs. I’ve developed a certain disdain for it and stopped eating it a few years ago entirely. But, a visit Continue…
