Pickled Strawberry Preserves

With some exceptions (white chocolate in fresh ginger ice cream, caramel corn, marshmallows, and candied peanuts, for example), I tend to like things that aren’t too sweet. That occasionally confounds people because I’m a baker and I am no stranger to sugar, honey, and maple syrup. Show More Summary

A Visit to the Le Creuset Factory

I’m a random collector of Le Creuset. When rifling through a random box at a flea market in France, a hint of one of their trademark colors may catch my eye. I’ll pull out the pot, inspect it (never with too much excitement because if I plan to bargain for it, I need to keep my cards close to my chest), then either make an offer...

Spring Picnic at Versailles

I decided to play hookey last week, which coincided with an invitation to the Jardin de la Reine at Versailles for a spring picnic. The weather has been on-and-off in Paris, as it usually is, and no matter what the skies were planning on doing, I figured it’d be nice to escape the city for a few hours. And who could pass up a picnic in the gardens...

Cherry Leaf Wine

  France is the land of wine but it’s not necessarily something of adulation. I was told the average price spent on a bottle of wine in France is €3,20, which means a lot of people are spending less than that. To many, it’s just a drink and not something that’s considered a special-occasion beverage. And while people scoff at things like boxed wine, or wine...

Ballymaloe Irish Brown Bread

One of the high points of going to Ireland is the Irish breakfast. In France, breakfast is usually some toast and coffee, and I’m fine with that – although a few hours later, I usually have a plain yogurt with some dark honey or a bowl of fresh fruit, to tide me over until lunch. The Irish breakfast, on the other hand, is a major...

Kerrygold Ballymaloe Literary Festival of Food & Wine

As I stumble through figuring out how to use the new features after the site upgrade, I’ve got a backlog of posts and pictures that I’ve been anxious to share. It also has taken me a week to recover from my weekend in Cork, Ireland, as a guest at the Kerrygold Ballymaloe Litfest, where I was a speaker in this year’s line-up. I’d only been to...

Welcome to the updated site

A whole bunch of work has been going on behind-the-scenes here this spring, and now, the site is now completely mobile-friendly and responsive, meaning that it will adjust to whatever size screen you’re reading the site on; desktop, tablet, or mobile device. Show More Summary

Midleton Farmers’ Market, Ireland

How excited was I to get an invitation to be a speaker at the Kerrygold Ballymaloe Litfest festival at the Ballymaloe Cookery School? It popped into my mailbox a few months ago and although I had been to Ballymaloe a few years back, I remembered the exceptional food of Cork, Ireland, and the lovely people – which meant there was no way in heck I was going...

Liddabit Sweets

I was trying to explain to my French other-half what an incubator was. In America, we don’t use the term just for babies, but we use it to describe groups that exist in places like San Francisco, where new ideas are born from creative...Show More Summary

Broccolini, Blue Cheese and Bacon Frittata

People see the outdoor markets in Paris and think that everyone does their shopping there. But if you work a 9-to-5 jobs, or whatever hours normal people work (ie: not me), it’s hard to take a few hours off to go leisurely pick out your fruits and vegetables – not including the time waiting in line behind madame, selecting the two figs she is buying as...

Weekend Out of Paris

A weekend trip out of Paris for a barbecue, card games, wine, baguettes, foie gras and cocktails!

Strawberry Jam

A tasty strawberry jam recipe that uses the best of the season's berries. Fast and easy to make, this simple jam is a delight on morning toast, or spooned over ice cream or yogurt.

Cranberry Upside Down Cake

A classic upside down cake recipe with a tangy cranberry topping, using fresh or frozen cranberries. Great for the holidays, or any time of the year!

Midleton Farmers’ Market, Ireland

The Kerrygold Ballymaloe festival gave me a chance to visit the lovely Midleton farmers market in Cork, Ireland.

A tasty visit to the kitchens & shop of Liddabit Sweets candy makers in New York City and Brooklyn

Broccolini, Blue Cheese and Bacon Frittata

Broccolini (or broccoli) frittata makes a simple meal and can be adapted to whatever vegetables, meats & cheese you have on hand. Great picnic fare as well as the perfect appetizer!

The Martini

The classic martini recipe, made with gin, vermouth and olives. And excellent cocktail served icy-cold.

Asian Ginger-Soy Sauce Chicken

Turn ordinary chicken into a spectacular Asian dinner with soy sauce, honey, ginger & garlic. An easy to make recipe that you can do in a home oven.
