july catch up

Hey Friends, I’m a multi-award-winning and best-selling cookbook author and photographer.

My Books

July was a busy month here. We kicked off the initial stages of our home remodel and you can see how my kitchen looks before the big gut (that’s about to happen in a few weeks). It’s going to be an interesting experience, I’ve made a makeshift kitchen space for work to test recipes but part of me wants to hold off and cook in the new kitchen. I am very excited and thank goodness for countertop ovens and portable stoves!

Here’s are my latest recipes published in July.

At the Guardian Feast, we celebrated fruits and I’ve got two recipes for you : A Roasted Grape Salad with walnuts and a cool lime sorbet that’s infused with Makrut lime leaves that’s sure to keep you refreshed at all times during this hot summer.

For Food52 I looked into the biology of eggplants and how to prepare them for cooking and we even attempted an eggplant “bacon” recipe.

For Serious Eats, we take a step-by-step approach to making a creamy, cheese loaded gnudi that I think can best be described as pillowy. Serve it with a saffron mushroom broth or just pop them directly in your mouth.

Until next time, stay safe!
