Here is my way of making an extravagantly rich classic (egg yolks, cream etc….) into a much simpler and leaner treat. I “cheat” with honest tools: The addition of tapioca allows me not only reach a wonderful texture the healthy way, but also to whip up the whole dessert right...

A frittata is the Latin answer to our classic omelets: It is an open-faced omelet, about an inch high, with other ingredients mixed into the egg mixture rather than used as a filling. The batter is poured into a large skillet and placed on a stovetop, just a few minutes...

This recipe is in all my cookbooks, including my upcoming one. I can never make enough of these; and apparently, neither can thousands and thousands of people. A few years ago, I was involved with a few friends in a massive fund-raising project and made a million cookies (yes, a...

We all find ourselves, occasionally and sometimes not so occasionally, in situations that bring us apart from the comfort of our kitchens and the amenities that surround us daily: a vacation week, a business convention, a year away in college, even a week under the weather. All too often, a...

Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Torte I have made hundreds of these for parties. A few years ago, a couple whose wedding I was catering wanted this very cake, but luxuriously decorated to their specifications on their wedding day (don’t worry, the above picture is not the wedding cake!). I remember...

I am afraid tempeh looks as uninspiring as it sounds. But if you do go past its appearance and unromantic name, you are in for a real treat: Tempeh is made from cooked and slightly fermented soybeans and compressed into patties; it is then diced and used in stir-fries, soups,...

Cold Sesame Noodles Lapsang Souchong is a Chinese tea with an intriguing pungent, smoky, “tarry” taste. As a drink, you will either love it or hate it, but you will always love it in a dressing or marinade. Settle for Earl Grey if you don’t have it on hand. Children...

Move over Bagels and lox! Ingredients: 1 bunch thin asparagus, tough ends removed, cut in inch sections 2 heads Boston...

Summer Rolls with Thai Sauce Summer rolls are those delightful paper-thin rice disks that you dip in warm water to soften (no cooking!), fill with virtually anything you like, roll and dip in the sauce of your choice: I love the suggested Thai dipping sauce, but you could use teriyaki...
