Nir Mesika, Chef/Owner of Timna in NYC, plays boldly with unexpected flavors which pair perfectly with quieter elements in his carefully balanced dishes. His Moroccan inspired creations, with roots in Israel and more subtly influenced by his time in Milan, are almost always connected in some way, to his mothe...

Anyone else relish food centric summer travels? I love to plan around great meals in vegetarian friendly restaurants, bike rides and picnics, and meeting organic growers at local farmers' markets.

Cherry Rice Soufflé & A Culinary History

Springing Forward & a Few Observations

Springing Forward & a Few Observations

Springtime has sprung on the vines and on the fruit trees.
