I'm the associate editor at Fine Cooking. Prior to joining Fine Cooking, I lived in Brooklyn, where I was an editor at Hemispheres and a freelance food writer. I'm constantly experimenting with interesting-looking ingredients,and it's not uncommon to find me in the kitchen all weekend making meals for the week. If I'm caught short without anything in the freezer, my go to is pasta with veggies and a poached egg.
This week in the kitchen, we had fun with lobsters, rolled some gnocchi, and got some very decorative vegetables.
This week, we get ready for the holidays, eat lots of sweets, and savor stone fruits while can.
It was a short week, but we managed to squeeze in some pasta-making and a trip to a peach orchard.
This week was all about photo shoots. Denise and Alison went to New Orleans, and Julia made her modeling debut.
I'm a ramen fanatic, and so I was curious about Ivan Orkin's rise to ramen-legend.
Swedish wunderkind Magnus Nilsson's Fäviken, named for his restaurant in remote northern Sweden, is more poetry book than practical cookbook.
Eat your greens by making them crisp and crunchy.
