Not A Chorizo and Shrimp Taco Post

/

I’ve been at it again. I made Chorizo and Shrimp Tacos. Why not? Everyone likes tacos, right? But this isn’t a Chorizo and Shrimp Taco post. I just couldn’t bring myself to do two shrimp taco posts in a row. So this is a salsa post. A Raw Tomatillo and Avocado Salsa post. But I’ve…

Cauliflower with Saffron-Pickled Raisins

/

I’ve pickled plenty of stuff on this blog: mangoes, mustard seeds, even a few little birds. So it easy to see how pickled raisins would be my kind of thing. Sweet. Savory. Unexpected. Which sounds like a metaphor for a happy life. Well, at least to me it does. So when I saw a Chef…

Recipe Pasta: Chicken Liver Ragu

/

I thought about you guys just now because I’m eating pasta. Do you remember when I used to make default pasta here on Sippity Sup? Well, of course, you don’t – you’re too young. That was eons ago. But I did want you to know I still eat pasta, and the pasta I’m eating is…

Burnt Basque Cheesecake

/

For me, food and travel are hard to separate. Even when I come across food from someplace I’ve never been. So I was thrilled when I opened the LA Times yesterday and came across a Chef Dave Beran recipe for a “Burnt” Basque Cheesecake. Burnt is in quotations because the char on top is from…

Vegan Carrot-Ginger Black Sesame Loaf

/

More and more people are flirting with a vegan lifestyle. I’m not one of them, but I’m not not one of them either. I certainly believe, for our own health and that of the planet, we should be eating fewer animal products. Still, I’m a never say never kind of guy and I doubt I’ll…

Jessica Koslow Sprouts Sprouts Pears Pears Salad

/

Another Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad. This one from Jessica Koslow (Sqirl, Los Angeles). It features two ingredients (sprouts and pears), each presented two ways. According to Koslow in a quote from her cookbook Everything I Want to Eat, “A lot of chefs use the great trick of highlighting an ingredient by using it in two…

Tonnato Chip Dip

/

Vitello Tonnato: tuna, capers, anchovies, and mayo whirled in a blender then slathered over thin slices of chilled veal. It’s the ultimate Italian picnic feast – served on a hot day in the cool shade of an olive tree. I love this dish for the mere fact that you can take something as special as…

Picture-Imperfect Herb Fritters

/

Pictures don’t always tell the whole story. I’m pretty thrilled with the Ottolenghi-inspired Herb Fritters you see here. Brown and misshapen, I admit they’re not much to look at. That’s one of the problems facing food bloggers these days. If you want to reach a wide audience your food has to look extra-special scrumptious. Wrapping…
