    The Bon Appetit saga proved you can politicize everything, as the mob demands, or you can create a vibrant, innovative culture — but you can't have both.During the lockdown regime of the past year, millions of Americans turned to their televisions, computers, and phone screens to escape despair. Because we are creatures of innovation and curiosity, however, many people taught themselves to make sourdough bread starters from the internet and something new the next day.The bread-baking game got so out of hand at one point this summer that yeast vanished from grocery store shelves. The appetite for hobbies, knowledge, and...

    A recent Lee Valley newsletter had an article on carrots - harvesting, storing; and included a 'refrigerator pickle' recipe for carrots that looks very easy and good: I recently purchased one of these embossed rolling pins; a lot of them appear to come from Poland, as mine did; but I received mine very quickly. Haven't tried it yet, but am looking forward to using it for Christmas. They make many different designs, including one with reindeer and Christmas trees, which I also want to buy for a darker, spicy cookie. (They generally come with recipes; but if you search...

    It's the lightest backpacking meal—and one of the easiest and tastiest Freshly caught trout tastes way better than a bag of freeze-dried slop. Backpacking food is often uninspiring. Because vegetables and meat are heavy and inconvenient, they often get left behind. And many easy-to-make, lightweight, dehydrated meals are bland or textureless. It’s a shame when you consider the wealth of free and delicious wild foods we’re surrounded by on so many backpacking trips. Plus, if you gather your meal at camp, it won’t weigh you down on the trail. If you want to go this route, your options are: get...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—It was quite a spectacle at the Senate hearing for Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court this morning, as Judge Barrett calmly answered the committee's questions while cooking dinner for her family of nine with her right hand and typing up an appellate court decision with her left hand. "That's a great question, Senator, thank you for asking," she responded to one line of questioning as she chopped up onions to put them in her stew. "Sorry if I'm crying during my response -- it's just the onions." She eloquently answered the inquiry while moving on to...

    After cooking more at home during supposed "Lock-downs", I've begun catching up on cataloging all the family recipes from several generations, including newspaper and package clippings from the 30s. Curious if others are all sensing a resurgence in home-cooking from scratch. Can't find an older Quiche Lorraine recipe. Maybe we can exchange recipes.

But if you’ve got chick, this from Food Wishes looks like a great, fast-to-put-together recipe: Chicken a la Crema: ******************************************************* As I’m sure many have been, over the past weeks of teleworking I’ve experienced periods of furious (and frustrating) work; and many slow hours where nothing was happening or could be done.

    CONSUMER REPORTS — Sales of air fryers are hot. People love the idea of crispy, fried food that’s supposed to be a bit healthier because very little oil is used. But what if you don’t have an air fryer? Consumer Reports say chances are you can still air-fry home without spending money or cluttering up your countertop with a new appliance. So what’s the deal with air fryers? These popular countertop cookers turn out chicken wings, french fries, shrimp, and other traditionally fried foods without using a lot of oil. You can spend $50 to $300 for one. The good...

    While it’s hard to see the bright side of things during the dark days of the coronavirus pandemic, one potential silver lining is the fact most consumers are cooking more at home. Research has shown that home cooking not only often can lead to healthier overall lifestyles, but it’s also a good life skill to teach kids. And whether you’re taking a casual tour of social media or looking at data from any number of sources, signs today definitely point to more of us making our own food. A lot more of us. But what specifically do the numbers say?...

    A handful of experienced cooks on which pantry staples they turn to again and again, and their favourite isolation meals Pantry staplesShelf-stable. Even the name is comforting, the antithesis of a viral threat. Contrary to the pillars of contemporary food culture — fresh, seasonal and inherently fleeting — it’s the canned, dried, jarred and otherwise hardy that we can rely on in a pinch. Forming the unsung foundation of so many meals when times are good, social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic has given these foods new meaning. Staples hum in the background during days of plenty. Some of them...

    VIDEO I had been intending to make a cast iron pan pizza for a long time but kept putting it off for what might seem like an incredibly silly reason. Namely I never made dough before and for some weird reason I had a fear of working with yeast because it is a type of bacteria. Well, after I worked with the yeast and the dough, I saw just how absurd that fear was and also how easy it is to prepare dough for pan pizza. With that out of the way, the rest was easy. The great thing...
  • 90% of Americans don’t like to cook—and it’s costing them thousands each year

    For some Americans, going out to dinner is a treat, planned and budgeted for. For others, it’s just another Tuesday night. And Wednesday. And Thursday. And that second group of people is becoming the majority. The number of Americans who enjoy cooking is declining, while the prevalence of food delivery startups, and culinary-centric television shows grows. In the Harvard Business Review, researcher Eddie Yoon shares data he’s gathered over two decades working as a consultant for consumer packaged goods companies. Early in Yoon’s career, he conducted a survey that determined that Americans fell into one of three groups:
