Smoked Prime Rib

January 5, 2016

Just a brief post from the cooking files – smoked prime rib roast. There’s nothing like a well prepared hunk of meat to serve as show-stopper for a dinner party. This beef roast was covered in a generous amount of salt, pepper, and fennel pollen then it rested in the refrigerator for a number of hours. Before cooking it came to […]

Thai, Sichuan, Ramen

December 16, 2015

  Cooking and eating Asian foods seems to be pretty common amongst the big food nerds. It’s something different; maybe more interesting flavor profiles, atypical spices, bright or funky flavors, and more varied cuts of meats than the average white kid in the US eats along side their boxed mac ‘n cheese. The food-stricken are always seeking the […]

Red Eyed Mule, Muss & Turner’s, Foxeria, Umaido, Nduja Pasta

September 22, 2015

Hey there. Been a minute. Here are some things which are delicious I’d like to talk to you about.   The Red Eyed Mule in Marietta. One of the best southern breakfasts in town. The grits are cheesy and creamy, sausage is flavorable, and the biscuit is the wonderful sweet, fluffy type that puts Chik-Fil-A […]

Summer Pasta

July 26, 2015

One of my favorite summer dishes to make is a kitchen sink pasta based on a technique I learned from a Michael Ruhlman video a few years ago. The basis is that you chop up some ripe tomatoes and let it sit (unrefrigerated) a while so the liquid draws from the fruit, offering up a beautiful tomato water. This water serves as the starting point for […]

Pepperoni Ragu

April 21, 2015

Last week I found I had a bunch of pepperoni and sausages in my fridge and decided to make ragu with both. I chopped them roughly (removing the sausage casing) and sliced onions and cooked it all over low heat for a while. I added some garlic and oregano and salt and then a can of San Marzano […]

Fried Baked Hot Wings

February 13, 2015

I’ve chronicled it many times, but hot wings are my side piece, and there are very few instances that would cause me to swipe left. I’ve seen many attempts to make a solid baked chicken wing, but there are just some things that will always be better than alternatives, and fried wings will always best baked ones. However, […]

January 2014 Gavage

January 23, 2015

Eating here and there. Jigae and pancake at So Kong Dong. My favorite for Korean stews. My first visit to the new location of Cafe Agora. The mixed maza platter is the jam. She-crab soup at Canoe for brunch. Murky and delicious. My brother nails a rib roast. Chicken laksa at Mamak. I’m no Malaysian […]

Christmas 2014: Nothing Exceeds Like Excess

January 9, 2015

It’s basically the holiday that won’t end. Christmas is still going on for me – I have more gift exchanges this weekend with grandparents. But the main events are over and I’m back into the regular swing of things at work, and have even hit the gym a few times to sweat out the booze […]
