Hibiscus Punch!
One of the last big family trips we took, while I was in the early years of college and “cough” smoking a pipe was to Egypt. A lot of things about that trip were revelations for me: Savory Breakfasts, Grain Salads, Middle Eastern Tea, African Coffee. But one thing that stuck with me was a ...

Pasta alla Norma, the Wrong Way.
The other day at work one of the cooks (Yo Josh!) made a delicious side dish for our staff meal. It was Kale dressed with puree of roasted eggplant and curry flavors. When I saw Bittman's boring revisit of Pasta alla Norma in the NY Times (A Recipe for Pasta Alla Norma, Mark Bittman's Way), ...

A version of the classic Scots' libation, Athol Brose.

More adventures in soup making!
If you looked at the pictures on the Posole Post, you might have noticed that there was more prep on the table than was used in the Posole. I also made another soup, one I've made variations on over the years, Pureed Squash and Apple Soup. I often make this with Indian spices, Curry and Ginger, ...

Why I am not popular at parties...
“Well, to make Root Beer, you'd have to actually use Sassafras, but since those kids at UC Davis proved it is dangerous…” “Uh, what? Kids at UC Davis?” I was chatting with an acquaintance about Gruit, Ginger, and Root Beers, and she threw this into the conversation.

Riesling Punch!
Every year, some friends who live in Napa have an Octoberfest party. Or maybe it is an “Oystoberfest”. There is Riesling. There are Sausages. There is Chablis. There are Oysters. This year I vowed to create, or find, a Riesling Punch for the party. I didn't have any luck finding an official, ...

Remake/Remodel of Alton Brown's Cape Fear Punch.
A while ago I made a version of Alton Brown's Cape Fear Punch for a party, but wasn't really thrilled with the way it came out. A friend invited us over for a party recently. When he mentioned that he had a bunch of Rye Whiskey, I thought I might remake/remodel the Cape Fear Punch using the more ...

Musings on Clarified Milk Punches.
A friend sent me the following questions, and I realized I had never really gotten around to writing up my conclusions or hints after making many a batch of clarified Milk Punch. “I've been thinking about how effective it would be to make a clarified milk “stock” of sorts: heat milk and add to ...

Adventures in cooking.
The other day I happened to be at the Ferry Building during the day. Since there is a new Rancho Gordo store at the Ferry Building, I couldn't resist taking a look at the products on display. Technically, I was shopping for Beans to use for Red Beans and Rice on Fat Tuesday, but I had a hard ...
